This is a custom made, high quality, traditional New England house. Many unique features such as beautiful beach stone hearth with wood stove, handmade kitchen cabinets and library filled with books for both children and adults. Original artwork adorns the walls and there are lovely views out every window.
Ten minutes from town and beach by foot, the property is located on a secluded acre . Lovely landscaping with herb garden and flower beds. Play area with vintage playhouse seen from kitchen window. This house is perfect for a family with children.
Owners live nearby and are available to troubleshoot any problems which may arise.
We've rented this house on and off for the last 4 years. Unlike another home we rented off VBRO- this house is exactly as it is pictured. Well outfitted, well maintained and great for a small family or group of friends. The owners are friendly and helpful if anything is ever needed. They take pride in their home, the experience their renters have when renting and it shows. Giff was kind enough to send back a towel we had forgotten. Can't say enough positive things about this home and the owners.
This is a gorgeous, peaceful, convenient house, that is full of personality and captures the magic of Block Island perfectly. Our family loves its closeness to town/grocery and (of course) Town/State Beach (our favorites with "little ones"), but also the quiet and relaxing sense of privacy and "away from it all" it possesses. There seems to be a gentle breeze perpetually blowing in through the picturesque windows, the furniture is comfortable and truly "feels like home." This is not a place to come if you want a "scene," or to be surfing the web, watching TV, checking your e-mail— it reproduces the best parts of being at home with family in a beautiful setting, while somehow magically drawing one away from all the usual distractions. As we see it, the only major downside to this property is that once you stay and settle in, you never want to leave!
My husband, 2 kids and a babysitter stayed here in July. Its a beautifully maintained home and suits a small family well. Nice and open living space and everything is updated. Although the one bathroom can be difficult at times, there is an outside shower with great pressure. What's unique about this home and why its great for a family, especially small kids, is that there's a cute playhouse and "pet" chickens and turkeys that patrol the property. Nice location, across from duck pond, if you know the island.
