About Bill & Diana Welch
We vacationed here for 10 yrs. before our dream came true of owning a place directly on the Quonnie Pond. We called it our giant aquarium when our daughter was young.WE love boating,clam bakes, beach combing,fishing & playing on/in the water. The scenic sunsets, moonlight& wide open sky are picturesque not to mention the ever changing water views are unsurpassed! This area boasts unique pristine & private beaches,water activities,events,shopping,tall ships, Fairs art & Agricultural. Lots of fun & variety.It's a great vacation spot in paradise!We just love it here!We encourage you to experience it,too!
Why Bill & Diana Welch chose Charlestown
Location,Location,Location! There isn't a better place to vacation than Quonochontaug! The water views & sunsets are gorgeous. Lots to do, minutes to everything, a giant playground.
What makes this House unique
Great Birdwatching area. Ospreys have nest within view. They return every year faithfully. So do blue & white herons and many other species. Fishing and clam right off the back yard or launch your small boat.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Amazing and private!!
What an amazing property! Our family spent the entire week playing in the huge yard, at the private beach and in the water. Drank our coffee by the water, grilled local seafood dinners, and took the kayaks and a picnic to the island a short distance away. A wonderful property for families - we didn't even need to head to the public beach, everything was right in our backyard! Thanks for an awesome vacation!!
Oh thank you! It’s so nice to hear & see how you & your wonderful family enjoyed it! We are happy to share such an amazing treasure with others! I loved hearing the children’s laughter & watching by them play!
Please come back again! Thank you for leave by the house neat & orderly!
It’s a joy renting to families like yours!
This is a small, but comfortable, house on a beautiful salt pond. Two of the bedrooms are roomy; one is smaller. The kitchen and dining room areas are comfortable and well-equipped. The living room is rather small, but opens up onto the backyard and spectacular views of the pond! It would be nice if there were some bikes and beach chairs available as there doesn't seem to be anywhere to rent these nearby. Overall, a very comfortable place to stay.
Thank you for your visit & review! You can rent bikes for the week very reasonable nearby. We have a link in the guest hospitality page that gives you that information. There's also a wealth of info in the house on many things to do or rent. There's 2 kayaks on the property to enjoy the saltpond that's your backyard.We did have several beach chairs but we no longer provide them. However,we do have loungers & outdoor chairs to use at the property only.
Great spot for relaxing, summer get-away
We love this spot!! Looks small but spacious and comfortable inside, with all the amenities you need to enjoy your time on the shore. Close to everything - Clamming, bike riding, lunch at Matunuck Oyster House and the Andrea and be sure to check out the Galapagos Boutique!! This is our second stay and this is truly a gem. We'll be back!!
Just got back from a great Sister’s weekend! The place was exactly as pictured. Bed’s were comfortable and the view was wonderful! The whole experience was exactly as I had hoped.
Thank you! We are delighted you had a wonderful time. We enjoyed having your family and hope you will stay again soon!
This house is perfect for a max of 8 people! There is only 1 bathroom but even with 3 teenage girls, this was not an issue for us! The house was perfect size, beds were comfortable and roll away twin bed fits in one of the bedrooms so all 3 kids could sleep in 1 room. We brought our own bed sheets and towels. The house had everything we needed for cooking breakfast and late night snacks. We ate out during the days. The views were breathtaking and the owners were so easy to work with. We will definitely stay here again. The price, location and the amenities were perfect.
We enjoyed having you at the house! It is a great, having the Quonnie saltpond as your backyard. There is nothing more scenic as being on the water. We are happy that you found the house comfortable & fully furnished. We try to do our best to make it pleasant as if we were staying there. .We look forward to having you back! Thank you for sharing your experience!
Very basic house but lovely setting
Overall our group was disappointed with the quality of the beds and the lack of basic house supplies. Per the house listing, we brought all of the necessary bath towels, beach towels and bedsheets, but arrived to find no bathmat, no hand towels, and insufficient toilet paper for our 2-night stay. The beds were also unsupportive and uncomfortable.
Separately, we were not warned ahead of time that a repair crew would be fixing the back doors in the living room when we arrived, which left strong off-gassing/chemical odors in the main living space for the rest of the day. This was particularly unpleasant for the two people staying on the sofa bed in that room. We understand the repair was delayed, but a heads up that a few people would be working in the house for the first 2 hours of our short stay would have been appreciated.
It's a very beautiful setting by the water, but we wouldn't choose to return.
We did our best to schedule the necessary repair service in order to also accommodate the changeover time between guests and we had no control over the company that was making repairs to the house arriving late and running over slightly and as a result had no heads up either to notify you. I'm sorry to hear you didn't think the beds were supportive, we have never had complaints about our beds which are good quality and newer. There is information both on the website under the guest details and I also emailed you separately with a list of items to bring with you of which both included those items you mentioned. We take pride in making sure that our home is comfortable and suited for our guests stays. Thank you for staying with us!
