This is the perfect family and wedding party summer home within walking distance to both 1st and 2nd beaches right below the historic St. George's cathedral. The house is centrally located just 5 minutes outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown Newport.
A large fenced in backyard for parents to let their children play and for private BBQ's, this New England cape home sits on a quaint and quiet street and is located a quarter mile from Newport and a straight 2.5 shot to downtown Newport's shops and restaurants.
The house sleep 8-10 with two bedrooms on the first floor and two bedrooms on the 2nd floor.
The home has recently had some excellent cosmetic renovations and is decorated to make for the perfect 'beach getaway. There is a new BBQ in the backyard under a 50 year old grape vine patio area. Large parties will enjoy a large fenced in backyard and parking for up to 4 cars in the driveway. Two flat screen T.V.'s cable and wireless internet will keep you in touch as much or as little as you'd like.
Myself, my brother and sister were all raised in the home and there are decades of memories made, lived and remembered at the house.
Erik Potter purchased this house in 1982
Beaches! Beaches! Beaches! No other neighborhood is so centrally located between the two beaches!
By renting this house we ask you to make your own lasting memories as we continue allowing us to make our own memories over the holidays each as we expand our own families. The house is in the perfect location...literally. It's out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Newport but only a short 5 minute drive away at the same time. It's also sandwiched right in between both of Newport's beaches, a 5 minute walk to Easton's Beach and a 10 minute walk to Sachuest Beach.
We stayed at the property the in July and we not overly pleased. The outside of the property was nicely kept and the location was great. But, the house was definitely only surface cleaned before we arrived and was in desperate need of a deep cleaning. The bed rooms were in need of new pillows desperately. One of the upstairs bedrooms did not even have a door. The family room was comfortable with one of the sofas being nice and the other one looking like it had seen better days.
We had arranged ahead of time to have a late check out which was given to us in writing, however the owner of the house called us and told us we had to leave hours before our scheduled check out time. That left a bad taste in our mouths especially because we were on our way to a party that was being thrown for us by a family member that we ended up missing. In the end however Erik who I assume is the property manger did refund us for some of the day which was nice but did not make up for the fact that we missed our party.
Great spot in Newport! We rented this home for a long weekend getaway and June and could not have been happier. The pictures do NOT do it justice! It is very cute in person and much brighter and more spacious than it appears. Everything was clean & well maintained - back yard space was great as well. It is an easy walk to the beach and quick cab ride to downtown. The only things I would have wished would have been better was maybe a bit more comfy beds and a second full bathroom for a group of 10 (but we knew that when we rented it and everything worked out just fine). The owners were also wonderful, fair and very easy to work with. I highly recommend renting this property for your getaway!
I had the pleasure of staying here for the fourth of July. The house is adorable. Each room sweeter than the last. It was very comfortable, clean and spacious. There is a cozy back yard where you can grill lunch or dinner. All the appliances are in great condition.
The location is also fantastic. It's a walk to Newport's 1st Beach. We rented bikes and we running, jogging and biking throughout town. I want to come back next summer!
It's a terrific spot!
