About Beth

We are native Rhode Islanders who love vacationing. We have been to many places, but our favorite and most memorable vacations are the weeks we have spent in our Bonnet Shores seaside home!

Beth purchased this house in 2004

Why Beth chose Narragansett area

We purchased 'Bayberry' in 2004 because we found it to be the perfect place for our family to enjoy summer vacations on the Rhode Island shore. We love the layout of this perfect for entertaining extended family and friends. We previously owned a different property in Bonnet Shores, but fell in love with the location of this one because of its proximity to the beach.

What makes this house unique

'Bayberry' has many unique features. First, the bedrooms are large and can accommodate port-a-cribs and air mattresses with plenty of room to spare. The two living rooms make it really nice if you like to spread out, and the additional loft area with twin beds is nice for guests. The house is on a double lot (a rarity in this area) so there is plenty of parking for you and your guests. The enormous wraparound deck is great for relaxing outdoors with your morning coffee and newspaper, or unwinding after a beautiful day at the beach.

Great Escape from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the time we spent at Bayberry. The house is perfect if you have a large family and all the comforts of home. Kelly beach is beautiful and clean, and just s short walk from the house. We will definitely keep this in mind for the future.

It's all that it's advertised to be!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Bonnet Shores.

The house was clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything you could ask for. As another person commented, it was great having 2 living spaces. We have teenagers so it was nice for them to have their own space. The deck was great for family dinners and just enjoying the outdoors. There are plenty of bath and beach towels so it was less to pack. Sheets are also provided.

We initially shuttled things down to the beach but quickly learned that it was so much easier to walk with the carts provided. The beach is beautiful and the water is warm! We cruised around to check out the town beaches and it made us appreciate the private beach even more (Kelly beach is not overcrowded).

We brought along our paddle boards and found a great spot to access the back side of the town beach. The younger kids loved being in the river and the sand bars we discovered.

The proximity to Newport was a plus. My husband and I brought out 10 year old one day to take a break from the sun. The teenagers visited multiple times.

We frequented Roch's Market to fill in the items we needed throughout the week.

The house is a great value for all it has to offer. It satisfied all ages. Beth was very responsive to all my questions in my quest to find the quintessential location for our family vacation.

Terrific location, perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a home away from home! My family has been returning to Bonnet Shores every summer and have stayed in this lovely beach getaway for many summer weeks. We've made wonderful memories here! The house is spacious and bright with two terrific common living areas for extra friends and family...basically two living rooms (up and downstairs)! Perfect for teenagers (and the parents!) who want space and privacy, but plenty of space to all gather for dinner or a board game. The deck is perfect for morning coffee, and especially spectacular at dusk when the sun sets over Wesquage Pond (a beautiful nearby wildlife refuge). This house is wonderfully maintained and updated by the owners and always clean when we arrive. The memories we make at this house keep getting better and better with each passing summer!

Very nice house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I meet every summer for a week in Rhose Island, and this was out first in the Narraganset area. How lucky we were to have found this house! The kitchen was great, the rooms large and beds comfortable. The deck was perfect for all our meals, and the outside shower felt wonderful after our walks to the beach. Everything we could have needed was provided, including linens, beach toys, first aid supplies (not needed this time, thank goodness!), WiFi connection, washer/dryer, and daily newspaper delivery (a very nice touch). Quick note - if one of your small children locks himeslf/herself in the bedroom (as ours did) , the key is on a yellow tag in the kitchen cabinet. Speaking of kids (big and small), the beach is very nice, but the rocks were a HUGE attraction. And the fireworks were a fun surprise Friday night! It was a wonderful week in the best house yet.

One Of The Best In Bonnet

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacation every Summer in Bonnet Shores. This was by far the best rental property we have ever had! The rooms were nice and spacious. The Master Bedroom was huge with a beautiful view of the water. I love cooking - it was great having the updated kitchen. The breeze has no problem flowing through each room and keeps the house at a perfect temperature. The back yard was great for the kids to run around. Huge deck with a BBQ made it easy to entertain guests. The outdoor shower was great - and a must for Bonnet Shore beach bums. Best part - walk to Kelly Beach. For anyone unfamiliar with the Bonnet Shores area - Kelly's Beach is where it's happening! Boogie boarding - surfing - sand castles - and families having a good time.
