Covered porches front and back. 100 feet from surf. Wide open views of ocean from both porches. Also, salt pond view in back. Walk across road to beach. State Beach and Town Beach are within walking distance.
We were searching for a location for Spring vacation that was close to everything and close to the water and some local attractions. We were traveling with 2 adult couples along with my teenage children so the location was perfect for all of us.
We met Mike upon arrival and he was extremely friendly and knew the area very well. He even gave us a ride around Matunuck and pointed out some areas of interest to us before we even unloaded our bags. The cottage was clean and cozy, and we enjoyed watching the surfers every morning from the front porch. East Matunuck Beach is walking distance and we enjoyed a nice walk out to the end of the beach with the kids since we had some great weather for April.
There are two bars on the same street, one we walked to a few times called Ocean Mist which is right on the water. Live music was playing on a Saturday and is a local favorite. Local destinations such as Narragansett, Pt Judith are a short drive away, as is East Matunuck Oyster House , where we dined and their food is spectacular.
The cottage is in a great location, with water views in the rear of the house of the ponds and ocean directly across from the front of the house. Mike has had the same renters here yearly and we can understand why, look forward to returning again soon!
This received a 5-star review because you can get lost in the view! We had the pleasure of spending a week in this cottage and could not have been more pleased. The place was clean, comfortable, and very well equipped. Mike and Peggy were very friendly and welcoming, gave us the names of places to eat, shop and specifics on the local beaches. The cottage had a spectacular view and the front porch was where we spent time watching surfers and wind surfers, right across the street. We will certainly be back!
Just finished our 2nd visit to this cozy retreat. As said in their description, wonderful views from almost every window. So nice to be able to walk to the beach and great fishing opportunities with in walking distance. Wonderful friendly owners......with great suggestions to make you stay even better!
Every year our family takes a wonderful multi-generational family vacation. For the past three years we have stayed at Mike and Peggy's - and just confirmed our reservation for next year.
Matunuck is the ideal family vacation town and Mike a Peggy's property is quietly and perfectly located between the very busy East Matunuck State Beach and the relaxing South Kingstown Town Beach.
The backyard sports a couple of picnic tables and an outdoor shower that comes in very handy when everyone returns home sandy. This year Mike and Peggy had a new gas grill available on the back deck.
The property is located across the street from a tiny public access to the ocean. When the tide is out, this is a glorious spot to explore the bottom of the ocean and spend some quiet time.
Finally, this review wouldn't be complete without mentioning Tara's Tipperary Tavern (with ocean access), The Original Vanilla Bean (which only has the best ice cream on the planet), the grinders at Seaview Marketplace, and the incredible Matunuck Oytster Bar.
Our entire family is excited for another wonderful week in Matunuck next June.

Matunuk is a great friendly little town,that is a haven for surf fishers,and surfers alike.The house is cozy and has all the things you need.I'm looking forward to going back
This past weekend I had the wonderful pleasure of renting this cottage from Mike and Peggy, the owners, for a weekend getaway with my daughters and friends for a celebration of my daughter's wedding coming up in June. It was an all-girls affair. The location was perfect as it overlooks the ocean in the front and the salt pond in the back and it is very close to Theater By-the Sea in Matunuck, RI. Mike and Peggy were so accommodating and they shared in with our festivities and Mike even took some pictures of all of us girls as our limo arrived to pick us up and take us out for the day. It was a perfect weekend and I hope to return again, next time for a little R and R. Beautiful area and happy to make new friends with Mike and Peggy. Many thanks!
In Matunuck are excellent markets, farm stands, rock & roll, Irish music, Theater by the Sea, great surf, sun and fun. Mosquito Magnet on property In between Charlestown and Narragansett.
