Excellent walk to beach in Matunuck. (South Kingstown, RI area)
House has large yard and deck. 3 bedrooms, fully equipped. Swim all day. Watch the ferry in the distance as it heads back and forth to Block Island. Be sure to have a glass of wine on the deck as you grille dinner, then walk down to the Vanilla Bean for an ice cream cone.
We have been in Matunuck during the summers since our children were 8 and 10 years old. ( It's a kids' paradise, as they would tell you even today. ) We think it's a grown-ups' paradise: Relaxing, beautiful scenery, sleeping at night with the waves breaking in the background. Apart from the beach, bicycling is a major thing we love...this is the area to do it! And if you like surfing, Deep Hole is one of the best spots in RI and it is directly in front of the house.
A cottage became available within our greater family. We'd had a small place a mile back from the water and this was a great chance to get closer to it We have just loved it here.
This is not a 'fancy' summer place! But it is a charming ocean front cottage where you can really relax with the people you love. We have rarely rented the house, preferring to spend our full summers here, but this year has some fun twists which make it a good time to make it available for a few weeks.
