Frank & Kim Petrella purchased this house in 2008

Why Frank & Kim Petrella chose Narragansett

We decided to buy this home after being invited to the area by some friends of ours who owned a home in Scarborough and we fell in love with the area. Peaceful, un-crowded, lots to do, and close to everything - from the Block Island Ferry to dozens of restaurants, sightseeing, and ocean fun! We rented other houses several times before buying here in 2008, and we often hear that many of our guests started coming here as children and now bring their families back to Scarborough Beach year after year.

What makes this house unique

Peace and Quiet – Off-street parking, large corner lot, deck, gas grill, outdoor shower, and everything you need to relax - from dishes and silverware to washer and dryer. Cable TV, Wireless Internet, DVD player, and even a Sony Playstation with lots of games for the kids. Please also check the reviews since what our guests have to say proves that we care about our home, our guests, and your summer vacation fun!

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this lovely home. It is immaculate, grounds well kept, quiet street. The hot/cold outdoor shower is a bonus along with the washer and driver. The owners very easy to work with. We purchased parking pass which saved us money and because we visit Scarborough Beach frequently. Would definitely rent again.

Perfect Narragansett Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for myself and my two girls, ages 11 and 8!! The property is within walking distance of Scarborough Beach (a beautiful beach). It is also proximate to Newport and many other great Rhode Island attactions. The home is immaculately clean and as described by other reviewers. I will definitely rent this home again!

Great Vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this vacation property! The house was perfect for my family of five. The house was so clean and decorated so nicely - it really is adorable. The property is very well maintained and we could let the kids run around in the yard as it is on a very quiet end of the street with very few cars going by. The walk to the beach was very easy, staight down two streets - maybe 1/2 mile in total. We loved using the grill for the nights we ate there. Loved having all the amenities of home - coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, washer, dryer, wifi and the kids loved playing the PSP, which was a treat for them. The owners are great! Frank and Kim answered all of our questions and were so helpful to us. Couldn't have had a better experience. Perfect vacation rental in every aspect. Thank you Frank & Kim!

Lovely, well-kept property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week summer 2013. Found the home well equipped and situated on a lovely corner lot with a nice yard. The house was really the perfect size for us, 5 adults for the week. It's an ambitious walk to the beach so we usually drove and found on street parking; beach parking is really expensive so if you plan to purchase a pass plan accordingly. The furnishings in this home were quite comfortable and cozy. I think the photo's understate the niceness of this place. Highly recommend this to the smaller family.

Owner's Response: The walk to Scarborough is 10 minutes down Angell Road, and there's also a beach cart in the house in case you want to take a lot of stuff. Many renters get dropped off with all their beach stuff for the day and get picked up afterwards - that way you save on the parking fee and only one person needs to make the trip on foot. The great thing about the house is that is on a roomy, quiet property where you can actually park your car(s) at the house!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at this house. It was neat and clean upon arrival. The only thing we brought were our linens. The owner provided plenty of kitchen items. We will definitely rent again from this owner.

33 Durkin Drive Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at 33 Durkin Drive for five years, and our visit this year was just as wonderful as all the others!

The house is always spotless, and every year something new has been upgraded or added.

Besides being close to Scarborough Beach and the Block Island Ferry, the house is a nice, comfortable place to relax when you're not on the go. The kitchen is just right for cooking and eating in, and the deck and grill are great for hanging out outdoors.

If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable spot to spend a week or two, and still be near beaches and boats, 33 Durkin is a great choice!!

Scarborough State Beach
Car: recommended

Narragansett has something for everyone with three great beaches, and many vacationers return year after year. Scarborough State Beach has body surfing and boogie-boarding as well as concession stands, showers, and rest rooms. Roger Wheeler Beach is just a few minutes away and has gentle waves which are great for toddlers. Narragansett Town Beach is also 5 minutes away where you can walk along the sea wall and enjoy the beach atmosphere.

The area is great for bike riding, walking or jogging. Take the ferry to Block Island for a day of exploring and shopping with dining and dancing at night. Visit the Galilee fishing village and have dinner on the docks or buy lobsters and fresh fish right off the boats to cook at home.

25 minutes to Historic Newport - tour the magnificent mansions and discover great restaurants and shops. Golf at any of the great public golf courses nearby, bring your bikes or take a Sunset Cruise around the Salt Pond and the Point Judith Harbor.

Other Activities: Also 45 minutes to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos
