Nice week

  • 5 of 5

I had a great week at this property. It was great that I could find a house that would let me bring my dog. We had to go in the off-season, otherwise the beaches would be off limits with the dog. The fenced in backyard will keep your dog from getting loose, and there were even food and water bowls available to use. There were maps and books listing things to do, as well as books to read, some DVDs, jig saw puzzles and board games for those rainy days. Newport and Jamestown are about 45 minutes away, Point Judith is about 30 minutes, and Watch Hill is about 30 minutes. I am looking forward to returning next year.

Great summer rental

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house. It was tidy and clean. We especially enjoyed the screened in room and rooftop deck. The house was recently updated very nicely. The kitchen has everything you need for food preparation, and the gas grill is large and works well. We had a terrific time.

I was hoping that we could walk or ride bikes to the beach, but the beach road was too busy and narrow for that. We had to drive to the beach instead. The house came with a beach pass for two local beaches. The Charlestown Town beach is super nice!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! We always ride our bikes to the beach but — compared to NYC — Charlestown Beach Road is a lot quieter than what we're used to. : )

A Very Nice Stay - Great for Dog Owners!

  • 4 of 5

If you vacation with your dogs, the C-Shack is great location. Our dogs felt right at home and enjoyed both the private backyard and roof top deck. The large screened porch is nice and airy. It's a great spot to sit and eat dinner or to play cards. Sit up on the roof top deck in the early morning or late afternoon and relax. The grill is wonderful and cooks nice. The owners are great and very responsive. Everything was as promised- two beach passes, WiFi, etc. The only real drawback was the lack of air conditioning. We stayed during an especially hot and humid spell in August and it would have been a little more comfortable with it. Overall, we had a very nice vacation and would recommend staying here.

Wonderful summer😀

This was our third year at the C Shack. We love coming every year. The cottage is cozy yet spacious. The location is great, quiet and just minutes from the beach either by car or bike. We especially love the rooftop deck and outdoor shower. Amy is wonderful to rent from!! Thanks for another great year...Kate

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really felt at home here and had never really explored RI before so the location was perfect! We appreciated the pet-friendly yard & the rooftop patio! Used it every morning and evening. The master bed was extremely comfortable!

Only changes I would make were to add a tv to the master bedroom. We had 2 teenage boys who took over the tv room and that left us with only our laptop to watch on.

Kitchen, living areas could've been a bit cleaner, but overall we really enjoyed our stay and owners were very responsive! I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or a relative.

Owner's Response: We're sorry if the house wasn't as clean as you'd like. We are surprised to hear this as we hired a new cleaning service last year and found the house immaculate the times we were there. Future renters, please do let us know if you find the house less than clean.
