About Elizabeth Johnson

My husband and I are both native Rhode Islanders, with a great love for Matunuck. Someday we'd like to retire here, but for now, we enjoy sharing the beauty and uniqueness of this little beach town with our guests.

Elizabeth Johnson purchased this house in 1998

What makes this house unique

When I first met the realtor at the house, the view of the marsh from the first floor, the sound of the waves, and the sense of privacy sold me! We loved that view so much, we raised the second floor to make a master bedroom suite with bathroom and added windows on the east side. Morning sunrises are photo worthy. We also added a south facing second floor porch ideal for viewing a sunset, soaking up some sun, or enjoying the sounds of the birds roosting every evening. The east facing porch is our favorite for morning coffee and sunset relaxing. A bonus is the osprey nest in the middle of the marsh. Each year the osprey pair nest and eventually introduce us to their little ones. Hope you'll love it as much as we do!!

Couldn't ask for anything more...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed 2 weeks of heaven in this lovely home. Walk to the beach or relax on the spacious decks that surround the house. Waking up every morning to the sunrise and sitting on the deck at dusk admiring the beautiful gardens in the yard. Very clean and well stocked rental. Owners were friendly and accommodating but non-intrustive. The lovely vases of fresh cut flowers in each room upon arrival was a nice surprise. Would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway.

First-class accommodations and location!

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of our Matunuck vacation was just perfect for our needs. Liz was a pleasure to coordinate with, and our arrival felt like something out of a movie. Fresh cut flowers, soft music playing upon our arrival, and the place was clean and neat as a pin--just dreamy! Super comfortable and charming home filled with everything you need. We live in-state but treated it like a true get-away. I parked my car in the driveway and only used it once! My kids biked all over town and I walked everywhere, or sometimes chose to go nowhere at all because I wanted the quiet house all to myself!! My kids are already asking for 2 weeks there next year and it won't take much to twist my arm. It was hard for us to leave there...it really felt like home and was the perfect spot for much-needed R&R.

Solace on Community

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Matunuck was simply perfect. The house was beyond expectation- the peace and tranquility of the porch and grounds, the sunrises from the second floor, and the wonderful indulgence of the outside shower all combined for an unforgettable week. The house was the perfect fit for me and my three daughters and we felt so comfortable in the hominess of the little touches. What a pleasure to amble to and from the beach during the best weather week of the summer! We would love a repeat anytime!! Thanks so much!!

Breathtaking beach home

  • 5 of 5

Simply breathtaking! Very clean and relaxing. You will only need your personal belongings for they do a very good job accommodating all needs for your stay. These pictures do no justice for just how beautiful and well maintained this getaway is. Fresh cut flowers throughout, from sunrise to sunset you will be in love. The ocean is so close you can hear it from the porch at night. Walking distance to the beach and some wonderful places to eat and even get ice cream. I have been a Matunuck lover since birth and it's nice to find a place that is cared for with love and feel comfortable knowing that you are renting from people are true, honest, trustworthy and are there if you need anything. Thank you for sharing your beauty with us.

Nice cottage

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this cottage July 2016, the owners are very nice people and the house itself is beautiful. I did have a few major complaints, one being, the gas grill was pretty much useless and caught fire every time we used it, the fridge had a terrible leak that i had to deal with the entire time we were there and if i touched the side of it i would get a shock. Both need to replaced badly! The grounds were beautiful and well maintained and the master bedroom is spectacular.....We did find that the mosquito situation is pretty bad because you are right on the Marsh but that is nature not much you can do about that... All in all I gave it a 3 star.....
