About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath (plus outdoor shower). Sleeps 5.

Bonnet Shores. Mapquest or Google Earth: 21 Leonard Bodwell Rd, Narragansett, RI to see proximity to beach. You can't get much closer! Easy walk (not hike - like other homes in Bonnet!!) to beautiful Bonnet Shores' Kelley beach in six minutes; bike in two. Quiet, relaxed setting. Bright and clean. No disappointments! The best sales pitch I can make is that at least half of my summer tenants are people who have stayed in the past and return year after years.

Ten min. to Narragansett Pier; fifteen min. to world renowned resort city of Newport, or Galilee for Block Island ferry; twenty-five min. to Providence, home of Waterfire, arts, and great restaurants of Federal Hill; ninety min. to Boston. Also visit RI's amazing southern coast, Watch Hill and Mystic Seaport.

Two bedrooms and one bath w/ shower, plus outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach. Queen bed in one bedroom, two twin beds in other bedroom (I have to update photos - which show only twin beds, and an older tube TV - I gotta' update the photos!!)

and a very comfortable fold-flat sofa (1.5 x size of twin). Kitchen, dining/living room. Washer/dryer. Picnic table & grill out of sun under carport. Fully furnished.

In Saturday at 2pm; out Saturday at 10am. Cleaning and linens included. No hidden charges. Please note that I can only rent for FULL WEEKS. I cannot rent for partial weeks - 8, 10, 16 days, etc. - even tho' Homeaway might quote you a daily rental fee once you exceed the minimum of 7 days. Glitch in Homeaway's system.

Great price for walking distance to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several places in Bonnett Shores. This home is really the best deal for what you get. It is clean, comfortable, well stocked, in a quiet neighborhood and walking distance to Kelly Beach. The owner is kind and easy to work with.

One of the BEST beach rentals I've experienced.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice neighborhood!! Comfortable house with all the necessities provided plus a few extras, like wireless internet service. The house is cozy yet spacious (our two small kids loved it) with everything you need to make this truly a home away from home. The carport has a picnic table and a grill provided for those evening cookouts. The house and property are well maintained. The beach is just two minutes away by bicycle. Rhode Island also has many bike paths, including a few very nearby( one is the William C. O'neill or South County bikepath. Another bike path that is about an hour drive is the Blackstone River bikepath, it is definitely worth the trip ( and while you're in that area don't miss Wrights Farm bakery!!) There are many other attractions (i.e. lighthouses, museums, gardens such as the "Green Animals Topiary Garden", antique stores, etc.) in the area, most are less than 30 minutes away by car. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience and we will definitly consider this for a vacation destination next year.
