BEAUTIFUL FAMILY HOME, GOURMET KITCHEN, OCEAN VIEWS & AC

Block Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This beautiful new home, with its large deck and covered porch, was built in traditional Block Island style in 2008. It offers spacious living with ocean views to the west from all three levels. The option of large screened windows, central heat and air conditioning ensure complete comfort in every season. The generous interior space and large yard are perfect for family reunions and relaxing vacations.

The first floor is mainly one large open space that flows easily from the kitchen at the back of the house to the dining and living areas up front. You can stand in the kitchen and see right through to the dining room and living area while chatting with a friend who is standing on the deck.

We built a large, Shaker-style dinning table that can seat up to 14 comfortably. The gourmet kitchen is well-equipped and features soapstone counter tops, a large island and all of the large and small appliances you'll need to entertain. The new kitchen includes a 48' Wolf range ( 2 ovens, 6 burners & griddle), 36' Sub Zero Refrigerator, 2 separate freezer drawers, free standing ice maker , microwave and two dishwashers.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the mud room with washer and dryer and a nice, convenient half bath. There is also a private bedroom with queen bed on the first floor. This suite has its own full bath with shower and tub finished with subway tiles and a marble-topped vanity. Despite being close to the living area, this is a very quiet, comfortable room to stay in.

The second floor includes the master suite with king bed, flat screen TV, and full private bath. This includes a large double vanity with marble counter tops, a large shower with subway tiles & glass door, and a separate antique claw-foot soaking tub with amazing ocean views.

Third bedroom with queen bed and fourth bedroom with two twin beds share a bath with full shower and tub with subway tiles and marble topped vanity.

Third floor loft includes a TV/ Computer area and an additional sleeping area with two twin beds. This is a sleeping area that is great for kids. It is not a private bedroom, it is open to the TV area and stairs.

My husband and I are both artists and we love family, relaxation and entertaining. We designed and built this house with these things in mind.

Melinda Marye-Kelley purchased this house in 1995

We love the peace and quiet on the west side of the island. The sunsets are amazing.

The beaches near our West Side home are a bit rougher than the bathing beaches in town. On the other hand, they are within walking distance, almost always overlooked by the crowds, and they are the best place to be when the sun is setting!

GRADUATION CELEBRATION

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place to unwind and relax after a college graduation! House was perfect for two families with six adult children. Easy bike ride into town, quick walk to two beautiful beaches, and horseback riding just down the street! The house is equipped with everything and anything you could possibly want or need!

50TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

  • 5 of 5
10 of us stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate a birthday. The house was plenty big for all of us. The only downside being that the 2 people that slept on the 3rd floor in the loft would have to go down 2 flights of stairs in the middle of the night to get to a bathroom. We spent the days shopping and eating in the town and visiting the beaches. We grilled at the house each night because the sunsets were so beautiful from the deck.

OUR FALL REUNION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, and most of our extended family, have been coming to "the Block" for more than 20 years. We have always found it exciting to rent a different house for a week each year....as part of the experience. However, it is hard to imagine ever renting a different house than the "Kelly" house in the future. It is the most well equipped and one of the most beautiful homes on the island. Highlights are the incredible kitchen (the most important room in a vacation rental) the spectacular family dinning table, the master bath with a tub looking out at the horizon, the gorgeous views from the deck. I hesitate to post this review in fear that someone else may want "our" week next year.

2013 FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our whole family had a fantastic time this year at this house on Block Island. The house itself is absolutely lovely and the kitchen is a great place and has plenty of space for everyone to cook together or just hang out. We would rent again in a heartbeat! Everyone wants to come back. Thanks for letting us use your lovely home.

A WINNER

  • 5 of 5
Everybody has said it: Light, airy and clean—this is one book you can judge by its cover: the photos do tell the truth. Immaculately clean and everything works. New construction so even the stairs don’t creak, and doors all close and windows work. Plenty of hot water for seven people. Having visited BID for 45 years, I discovered for the first time that the west side is indeed windier than the rest of the island. During a summer day, there is a steady putt-putt of mopeds (which I sort of like as a sound of summer) and the shouts of cyclists, since the house is close to the road. The horse farm down on Coonymus brings rides by, so you have to watch your step on the road and shoulder for the recycled straw and oats the ponies leave behind. When we were there, the next door neighbor had a backhoe and spent a lot of the day moving rocks around (seemed like he just moved them from here to there, but I think he was preparing to build a wall or foundation). The noise and exhaust was a mild annoyance. Perfect silence at night. I brought my mandolin and discovered that the porch in fact has excellent acoustics. It was too windy most of the time for sheet music, however.

Town is really only a few minutes away (and even less if you brave Beacon Hill Road) but it was kind of a hassle cramming everyone into my Subaru and having everyone dependent on the car to get back. We had been spoiled by renting in the past walking distance from town. That was really the only negative for us.

The first-floor bedroom & bath was perfect for my 86-yr-old mother in law, who uses a walker. And the third floor loft was tween paradise for my 14-year-old.

Bill was very accommodating and attentive to a minor tub drain problem.

A REAL GEM

  • 5 of 5
This house is a real gem. The beautiful ocean views, great layout, excellent location, and great yard make this rental amazing. The gourmet kitchen is well stocked from top-of-the-line appliances to bakeware to plenty of place settings and serving dishes. It offers the chefs a terrific experience but also a nice open setting to be able to share meals indoors and out. We had 3 families who comfortably enjoyed each of the bath/bedrooms and kids shared the other bedrooms. The wrap-around porch was lovely for enjoying the views, eating meals, reading, and playing music. It is a short walk to the West end beaches, the greenway trails and a lovely bike ride to either the Mohegan Bluffs or the Town beaches. We can wait to return!
