Best rental ever

  • 5 of 5

We have rented cottages every summer for the last 4 years in this town & this by far was the best one. Super clean, everything updated, super cozy, affordable. We are a family of 4 and the space was not an issue. The kids played for hours on the private beach. Having the washer was a major bonus and time saver as we could pack less. The owners were gracious and wonderful to work with. We will definately rent again. We were just there 4 days ago and already miss it.

Beautiful cottage- exceptionally clean and comfortable. Right on the water of Buzzards Bay. Kayaking every day or touring the towns nearby. We stayed in the area for the R.I. Chowder Festival. Newport was a good 45 minutes but was well worth it to spend the down time on the water. Even found fabulous pizza at Yia Yia. ( and I'm a New Yorker). Speedy return of security deposit also.

Ideal location - great views

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is spotless and the owner clearly loves the property: it is very well-maintained. Our host was responsive and friendly. The property is exactly as described. It's perfect for two adults or a family with one child. We've been renting every summer for years and this cottage was the most thoughtfully stocked - plenty of pots and pans for cooking and a great kitchen! We hope to return!

My husband and I stayed at this cottage for 4 days. The cottage was exactly as described - perfect for two people. It is basic but beautifully situated on a little bit of beach, quiet and peaceful. Two small things would be nice - a mat at the beach door for wiping sandy feet and a little radio so we could listen to local news and weather. There is no wifi which we knew going in but cell reception is spotty, in case you really need it. All in all we had a very relaxing stay in the cottage. Thank you very much.
