Short drive to historic Newport mansions, Port Galilee fish markets, Providence outlets shops, Aquarium, Casinos, Watch Hill, Mystic Seaport..
There are all 5 five star rated reviews just this season, 'This house was even better than we had imagined. We loved feeling the ocean breezes in the bright and sunny screened in porch with ocean view. The place was extremely clean and felt like a home rather than a rental. The house was beautifully decorated with original canvas art and had a great home theater system in the family room for the nights we rented movies. We loved being so very close to the beach. I would highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone.'

Outstanding property, house and location!
We loved our stay. The house is wonderful. It was perfect for accommodating our family. Very nicely decorated, well kept up, charming and clean. You can tell when an owner uses the house themselves and cares unlike many rentals. It was very comfortable like a home away from home. From the front porch we could relax and watch everyone renting from further away lugging all their stuff to the beach. In the back sun room we could relax, talk, drink and eat with cool breezes and ocean views. The family room had ample seating, cable, wifi and a big screen TV. The upstairs deck was for laying out, drinking and talking with cool breezes and even more ocean views. We had lots of parking, a washer and dryer and an enclosed outside shower which I mostly liked to use.
The beach was right there hardly a walk at all. It was nice since we could easily go back to the house for food and drinks or if we forgot something without dragging tons of stuff. If we wanted to we could also buy food and drink at the beach.
Location, location, location, we could literally walk to breakfast, lunch and dinners everyday. Within 1-3 miles there are supermarkets, lots of shopping, Port Judith, ferry's, kayaking, clamming, golf etc. and within and hour or so we could be in Providence, Boston, wineries, casinos, Newport etc. and the list goes on and on.
We give this and A+ and we'll be going back year after year! (almost don't want to tell anyone about it).
Amazing house and location!
I'm a student at URI who has been living here since September and it's great! I love coming home from a stressful day of classes and being able to enjoy the amazing ocean views from this house. The ocean facing deck on the second floor has great views of Scarborough Beach - perfect for catching a sunrise or sunset! Every room is very open and lets in a lot of natural light (there are blinds for when you don't want as much light). Everything is modern and updated but still has a very beachy feel and that's saying something since i'm here during the coldest months of the year! I would definitely recommend staying here!
Beautiful house with a beautiful view
I lived here for the academic year 2016 - 17. It is a great house with a great view. The property is well maintained. Overall, I'd say it was an excellent experience.
Relaxing Beach Stay
My family stayed here for a week during our beach vacation to Narragansett / Scarborough. The house was clean and comfortable, and was a perfect size for 3 adults and 3 small children. The all seasons room was great for family dinners and enjoying the ocean breeze. The location is perfect, short walk to the beach. The owners were very accommodating and easily reached. Had a great time and hope to come back!
Beautiful and relaxing week!
What an adorable and comfortable cottage! My daughters and I spent a week in July enjoying the cool ocean breezes, great views on a very quiet street. The home is well-maintained and clean which is always a concern in staying anywhere else but your own home. There was enough room for everyone but my favorite was the master bedroom suite( I call it that because of how spacious it is with it's own bathroom and fantastic view from it's own deck!)
Our favorite beach in Rhode Island is Scarborough Beach which is pretty much a 5 minute walk down the street. We couldn't have had it better!
Wonderful house short walk to beach
The house is very well-kept with a nice back porch dining area perfect for relaxing, eating and reading. The master bedroom upstairs has terrific floral art, and a deck. Our two teens also liked their rooms. Would happily stay again if we are ever near the area. Great seafood restaurants also
The cottage is within one block from the beach surrounded by summer activities. Restaurants including clam shacks, lobster, family and fine dining are within walking distance and a short drive. Mini or regular golf are a few minutes drive as are batting cages, go-carts and in-line skating etc. Short drive to historic downtown, Newport mansions, Port Galilee fish markets, Providence shopping, airport, Foxwoods Casinos, Watch Hill, Mystic Seaport, Aquarium etc. Narragansett has several great beaches to explore. Scarborough State Beach (which is within one block) offers body surfing and board riding on its waves. It has concession stands & bath house with toilets. Roger Wheeler Beach/Sand Hill Cove is two miles away and has gentler waves, a playground and crafts for kids. Narragansett Town Beach is approx. one mile. The area is great for walking, biking or jogging. The Block Island Ferry, deep sea fishing charters and fish markets are few minute drive. Other Activities: Near many historic New England beach towns like Newport, Mystic Seaport, Foxwoods Casinos and Watch Hill
