About Irene Coleman

My husband and I are originally from the East Coast - Alan from Providence and I am from Brooklyn, NY. Since we are raising our two teenagers in California we have looked for an easier way to travel and see family. My 5 siblings decided that we would meet in Narragansett every summer and we have been doing that for 15 years now. It has been a great way for all 12 of the nieces and nephews to build a strong relationship. It is also wonderful to have a place that I love on the East Coast. Scarborough beach is a beautiful place.

Irene Coleman purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Irene Coleman chose Narragansett area

This is our second home. It is cozy and comfortable and everything that I want a cottage at the beach to be. We keep everything updated and have invested lots of time and money into keeping the house maintained and having great amenities. It is several blocks from the ocean and the stores, a restaurant and an ice cream shop.

Our street is very quiet.

Wonderful getaway steps from beach

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my second visit to 14 Frances last week. I am a Rhode Islander; my family has been vacationing in Narragansett for several generations. Irene's beach cottage is in a safe, quiet beach neighborhood. The location is wonderful - easy walking distance to the beach or the convenience store at the top of the road. Grocery store, Block Is Ferry, restaurants within minutes by car. The cottage itself is well appointed with everything you might need. Irene is very attentive and responsive if there is ever a question, issue or problem. I will return. Thank you for another wonderful, peaceful vacation!

Wonderful Beach cottage that makes you feel right at home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed the month of July and we still wished for more time to do everything the area offers . Our two daughters and their friends visited frequently and it was close enough to Connecticut so family members and friends could spend time with us. Trips to Newport, the surrounding small towns and roads for some great antiquing and of course Atwell's Ave. in Providence for some great Italian food. Think meats, cheeses, fresh pasta and stuffed squash flowers! Delicious bakeries to cart home dessert. We had beautiful beach days and loved washing away the salt and sand in the new outdoor shower with rain head. The home is tastefully decorated and the beds very comfortable. The layout of the cottage makes the best use of the space and we really enjoyed the front porch for reading and coffee. The back enclosed porch and the large outside deck with comfortable seating made entertaining a breeze. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and the area restaurants are too numerous to mention but here are a few worth visiting. Plum Point, Two Ten Oyster Bar , Mama Luisa's in Newport and of course the Coast Guard House to share a bottle of wine while sitting outside and watching the sunset. Irene is a very responsive owner and her love of the house shines through. Great place, great fun and great memories were made. Thanks for sharing!! Kathy and Tom

Owner's Response: Why thank you Kathy! I'm so glad that you made the most of your time in Narraganset and the surrounding area. I'm also thankful that you took care of the house as if it were your own. 😀

The house was well maintained, clean and provided everything necessary for a wonderful week at the beach. I've rented quite a few houses in Scarborough and this one is a standout. The deck on the back of the house provided lots of outdoor living space and we spent most of our time out there. We instantly felt at home in this cozy house. Definitely renting again!

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We're a family with two grown up daughters (13 and 16) from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We have rented this house for one week from August-3 till August-10 2013 to relax after our tour to Washington, Philly and Boston.

We already loved the pictures but in reliality it was even better! The bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen fully equiped, the washer and dryer very convenient. The great back deck and garden were superb.

The Weber BBQ the outdoor shower, it's too much to mention.

The enjoyable walk to the beautifull Scarborough beach approx. 600m.

We had a really unforgetable stay at Narragansett, one which was far beyond our expectations.

Moving on to New York!

More than expected!

  • 4 of 5

My two children and I rented this adorable house just a week ago and were pleasantly surprised by all it had to offer. When you pull into the driveway you are charmed with two huge blue hydrangea bushes on either side of the front door. The bedrooms were comfortable and my kids slept on the futon sleeper on the enclosed back porch. This became their little area the whole vacation. The appliances are modern with a frontloading washing machine and dryer. Plenty of places to eat - at the counter, the table on the back porch or the table on the spacious back deck. If you want to relax there is a hammock out back! Our favorite part, believe it or not, was the outdoor shower on the side of the house. It's the perfect thing for hosing down those sandy little ones after a day at the beach!

We enjoyed ourselves immensely and would most definitely rent again!

A very cute house - Beds need to be updated!

  • 3 of 5

While the house if very cute and exactly how it appears in the photos, there are a few items worth noting. Because the house is on the small side, the large furniture makes the house seem cramped. The two double beds are badly in need of updating, as they are very uncomfortable due to the sagging middle. I didnt last through one night in the bed because of this and ended up on the couch. I would have to agree with another renter's review about not much to do in the area. Also, I was quite surprised to pay over $20 to park at Narragansett Beach and an additional fee of $6 per person to get on the beach. We did enjoy a Ferry ride to Block Island (it was nice that it was so close). You will need to pay to park to catch the Ferry though. We also enjoyed getting Lobster's right from the dock in Galilee and the kitchen did have all the ameneties to prepare them at home.

Owner's Response: I saw your review for the house and I want to say first that I am sorry that the beds were not comfortable. We bought those mattresses 4 years ago and they were good quality and I put the Tempur-Pedic mattress toppers for people who don't prefer a firm mattress. Would you please let me know which bedroom you were in. I am going out next week and will address those issues. Also, it seems that you went to Narragansett Beach, rather than Scarborough beach. Scarborough Beach is a 4 block walk from the house. If you walk to the beach, there is no charge and plenty of amenities at the Scarborough Beach - a snack bar and showers... I am sorry that you were disappointed with the area and hopefully not with your whole vacation. I wish that you had called me to address the issues and concerns that you had. I would have done what I could to make them better. Take care and thanks for the feedback.
