About Paul & Trish Onofrio
We bought this property of 4 cottages and a two family house in 1997. It was very rundown. We lived on the property and did most of the renovations and landscaping ourselves with lots of help from friends and family. We now live in the next town but continue to be very 'hands-on'. We oversee the weekly turnovers to be sure the cottages are clean and well maintained. We are easily reached to solve any problems or answer questions for our guests.

Why Paul & Trish Onofrio chose Newport East
Trisha grew up in the Newport area and Paul grew up near the coast in Madison, Connecticut. Shortly after getting married, we were thrilled to find a 'fixer-upper' so close to the ocean. We take great pride in having created a unique vacation spot for so many of our returning renters and look forward to meeting new renters every year.
What makes this Cottage unique
Paul's gardens are what all our renters comment on and make our place special. When you walk through the gate, behind the hedge, the landscaping will charm you. Seashell paths, arbors, roses, hydrangeas, daisies, blueberry bushes and strawberries, covered decks, butterflies, birds and more create a serene and unforgettable place to relax and unwind.

This cottage was perfect for our getaway weekend. The outside gardens and porch truly made it a relaxing stay. The cottage was in an ideal location for us. We loved the short walk to the beach and the short hop over to downtown Newport. Definitely coming back for a visit!
We loved this property and had a great family holiday in Middletown.
This is a great property very close to the beaches in Newport and we had everything we needed for our 6 night stay. The cottage is very charming and our 2 kids loved the garden. We would recommend this place for families. Nearby Newport is great especially the Cliff Walk, harbour and restaurants. Only downside is how expensive everything is but all in all we had a fantastic holiday.
Thanks Charlie and Kathryn! It was great to have your family stay with us!
Great family place!
We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The cottage was stocked with kitchen supplies and games and was a short walk to Easton's beach. We also drove to Second and Third beaches and spent time exploring them. It was a very quick drive into Newport and easy to find parking and great food. We would love to be able to return someday soon!
Beautiful gardens, great family vacation!
We were so happy with this rental - the lush, unique landscaping creates privacy and tranquility, yet it's within walking distance to restaurants and the beach. The area has so much to offer - beaches, hiking, shopping, restaurants, historic houses, farms - never a dull moment! The cottage was perfect for our small family of four - two adults and two young children. The outdoor shower and optional air conditioning were a plus. HIghly recommended!
Terrific Place in Newport
Great gardens surround this small, homey cottage. The owners were terrific and the neighborhood was great, with acess to the beach and lots of restaurants, including Flo's Clam Shack. We enjoyed it a lot and hope to return!
Perfect for walking, biking
We walked to the beach, just two blocks away. We walked to the Cliff Walk, which is stunning and is just past the beach. We rode our bikes to the heart of Newport, which is just past the Cliff Walk. It's all right there, and the route for walkers and bike riders is safe, easy, and wonderfully scenic. Several great places to eat are only blocks away as well (Flo's Clam Shack and TJ's among them; both casual and not pricey). The cottage is quaint and airy. The patio is private and beautifully kept. Paul and Trisha are warm and responsive. We rented their slightly larger cottage next door once, too, and enjoyed it just as well.
The cottages are located on a quiet side street tucked back behind a hedge. It is an easy walk to the beach of about two blocks. There are no fees to walk on to the beach. There are restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance. The downtown Newport waterfront is about 2 miles away where there is wonderful shopping, dining and nightlife. There is so much to do - Mansion tours, Fort Adams, Brenton State Park, Cliff Walk, harbor tours, day trips to a variety of quaint sea-side villages. Our guests love enjoying all the hustle and bustle of things to do in the Newport area but then being able to come back and enjoy the serene garden surroundings of our cottages.
