New appliances, plenty of utensils, bowls, plates, glasses, etc. The flow of the kitchen, dining & living area allows for everyone to spread out as well as stay connected. Dining in the sun room just through the glass doors from the dining/living area is a treat for all. There is ample room to eat inside, but given the wonderful lawn & patio area & the screened gazebo, we found that we ate most of our family dinners outside. When you arrive, the bedrooms will have fresh bed linens, pillows, a cotton blanket, & a quilt. All our beds mattresses are protected with a zippered mattress protector covers & our beds are in excellent condition.
In each bathroom, we supply bath towels and washcloths, 3 rolls of septic friendly toilet paper, bar and liquid hand soap.

First time house renter--we loved our weekend in Misquamicut. The owners are lovely. The house was perfect for our group: bright and spacious and neat as a pin. The pictures are accurate and the house was clean which matters to me! Walked to beach, used the hot tub and the grill. Great location for a holiday at the beach!
Great hosts, great house. Spacious, full of amenities, and hosts stay in touch and are easily contactable. Highly recommended! Thanks!
The home was exactly as described.....and absolutely meticulous. Perfect for our family of 6 adults and 4 children.
The beach at the end of the street is beautiful.....an easy 5 minute walk or quick drive.
We would recommend to friends and hope to return next summer.
What a wonderful home for our family to share during a wedding weekend. The kitchen had everything! There was a great selection of books, games, and outdoor toys. It was nice to have several areas including a great yard for time alone or with family groups. The owners were helpful and welcoming. We would recommend this home to anyone traveling in the Westerly area.
We stayed at this house, just a stone’s throw from Misquamicut Beach, for the Surftown Half-Marathon in mid-September. Perfect location and family-friendly amenities for visiting the beach, and just minutes from Watch Hill, downtown Westerly, RI, and a scenic 15-minute drive to Mystic, CT.
The newly-reopened Andrea restaurant is a easy and pleasant stroll. Perfect place to stay for out-of-towners visiting (especially for the Surftown run): close enough to walk to the beach and avoid any holiday or weekend traffic. The local owners paid attention to every detail to make sure our trip was a pleasant one (even generously FedExing home our youngest child’s misplaced favorite teddy bear!). We give it our highest recommendation.
My wife and I completely enjoyed our vacation in this beautifully decorated, magnificently well equipped home. Our only complaint was the day of departure came too soon and we really wished we could stay! Clasina and Richard are the perfect hosts, they truly understand and accommodate the needs of travelers and they anticipate every possible comfort. This is a quality home to be enjoyed, yet respected. The owners are lovely people--this is our second visit and we look forward to more.
4 adults and 3 kids enjoyed a fabulous week in this wonderful home on the coast of Westerly RI. The house was lovely, spacious, very clean and filled with special touches from a hot tub to foosball to incredibly comfy couches to lounge on anytime of the day or night. In addition, the air conditioning in every room was a welcomed plus. Clasina and Richard do a great job of hosting guests in their well-keeped home. We had everything we wanted during our stay. We strongly recommend this home for anyone staying in the area.
