Matunuck - Beautiful Ocean Front - Fabulous Views; Gorgeous sunsets; sandy, private beach 30 feet from door! Contemporary home sleeps 8 - 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 TVs with cable, wireless internet, dishwasher, outdoor shower, fully stocked. Relax on the large deck overlooking the ocean or on the beach. Enjoy fishing, swimming, surfing, or rent a kayak. Spend the day in Newport, Block Island, Watch Hill/Westerly, Mystic Seaport, or the casinos in Connecticut. Golf and URI are nearby. Rhode Island offers lots of terrific restaurants, natural beauty, historic sites, arts, and just plain fun! Off season is wonderful - lower rates, more privacy, and lovely weather.
We are very sorry CM was disappointed with the beach conditions. Though we appreciate her kind comments about the house, we must respond to her description of the beach and ocean. CM stayed one week, 8/28-9/4/2010. A hurricane moved up the eastern seaboard that week, causing high tides and a rough surf. Obviously the ocean conditions are always changing and may affect the beach in a variety of ways.
We have rented this house for several years and really enjoy it! Matunuck Beach is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the ocean views. We love Tarra's and Ocean Mist and especially Vanilla Bean. There are several streets for walking and biking and East Matunuck is within walking distance.
The house is very comfortable and clean. The deck is great! We look forward to our week at Matunuck every year! It's our home away from home!
After a warm welcome by the owners, we were shown around our home for the week. All our questions were answered and the transfer. was easily accomplished. The home was absolutely spotless, well furnished and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. Full kitchen, large living areas and beautiful views from the deck and patio, also with tables and chairs gave us plenty of room to spread out. Sliding doors on both levels and windows allowed the sounds of the ocean to sooth our souls. Water shoes and outdoor shower solved any beach issues and a nearby public beach is available for those who prefer the combed sand. Two TV areas, one on each floor, took care of our one rainy evening. One evening we took the short walk to the Irish Pub down the road which featured live entertainment. Then back to sit on the deck and enjoy the ocean air and sounds of the surf. Pure paradise. We can't wait to go back!
We rented this home for a family vacation, all adults ranging in age from 28-62 and one child, 2 years old. By no means was this a party group, we were looking for a quiet and relaxing week on the beach. Initially we had some reservations about booking this home based on the owner's paranoia. She made it very difficult to work with her though we didn't pay much attention to it, we were just looking forward to a great vacation. Upon arrival we had to do a deep clean, mold everywhere and floors with sand already on them. Location is perfect, right on the beach with enough in walking distance to keep the family busy. The ocean as noted in another review was very rocky and mid-week there was so much seaweed washed up that our portion of the beach was not usable. This continued through the entire week, simply moving down the beach. There was no storm around our stay as the owner responded in the last post noting this. It's just not a good spot if you want to swim in the ocean. The 2nd floor deck was a savior once the beach was unusable as you could easily catch some sun there.
I have been waiting about 5 months to write this review as I was giving the owner ample time to respond to my numerous phone calls. She kept our security deposit and won't even let us know why. There was no damage to the home other than the screen on the porch door. It was partially ripped when we arrived and daily use made it worse. However this wouldn't have used the entire security deposit. Her lack of response and complete paranoia when it comes to renting made our decision to never return to this home. There are many other homes on this private beach to rent.
We stayed here last year and had a great week. The weather was perfect! The beach was really nice, might want to wear water shoes in the water-- small rocks in spots. The house was nicer and larger than we expected. Beautiful kitchen, nice living areas , 1 bed & bath upstairs, 3 beds & bath downstairs. We spent most of our time on the beach or on the spacious deck. Nice area, no noise from local bars. Very peaceful. We're renting again this summer and can't wait!
We rented this house without seeing pictures of the inside and we were pleasantly surprised how nice it was. Clean, decent furniture and well stocked kitchen. Bathrooms a little old and outdated but ok. Huge deck with great deck furniture and pretty sunrises and sunsets. Beach very rocky and surf very rough all summer long. Water shoes a must! Not great for kids or sitting on the beach but great views and nice ocean breezes. Although it was a nice place for a short stay, we would not return due to the beach/surf conditions that exist at this location. Sometimes you just want to walk through some soft sand on your feet and maybe walk into the water to swim painfree? Don't count on that at this rental.
We rented this house July of 2009. What a great location and a comfortable environment to relax in. Just steps from the beach, a great place to surf. I would definitely come back. Only advice would be to include photos of the interior so perspective renters can see ahead of time. No worries though the inside was nice.
Quiet beach area. Perfect for adults or younger children. Larger state beaches nearby. Miles of ocean drives. Unique villages with their own personalities- Wickford, Galilee, Narragansett. Providence and Newport - only 30 minutes away.
