About Lisa Sanford

This house is managed and rented by the homeowners Brian & Lisa, not a rental agency. All communication is direct with the homeowner. We live nearby and are very responsive to our customers' needs. We enjoy visiting our beach house and walking with our dog from the house to Scarborough Beach and Black Point Nature Preserve.

Lisa Sanford purchased this house in 2009

Why Lisa Sanford chose Narragansett area

This is a quintessential vacation cottage. It is comfortable for 2 families or an extended family to get together, enjoy the beach and after a full day, come back for a relaxing dinner. Even on rainy days the house is set up for games, puzzles, reading and enjoying the company that you are with. The bedrooms are very spacious. The upstairs is set up for kids, with trundles for friends. The downstairs bedrooms have comfortable king size beds perfect for a late morning. There is even a pullout couch for the extra guest. For other guests and student rental in the fall we are happy to create king size beds upstairs for your comfort.

What makes this house unique

We are only a short 3 minute walk to Scarborough Beach. Outdoor shower, clothesline for wet swimsuits, shed with wheeled cooler, beach-chairs and umbrella, and room to securely store your items.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very relaxing vacation and property

  • 4 of 5

Diane and I had a wonderful time at Lisa and Brian's property. We went to Scarboro Beach everyday and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Most of the time we went out for dinner; Aunt Carries's, great steamers, George's for two nights on Galihee Island and the Coast Guard restaurant which was fantastic. When we did stay at home, we enjoyed a cocktail on the front porch which was delightful, also nice neighbors. Brian had the grill ready for us to cook in the backyard which we did. Lovely backyard but could probably use some outside lighting unless I missed it. Refreshing outdoor shower. All in all, a very nice relaxing vacation and amenities were very good.

Very Nice House!!!! Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this house!!! It was perfect in every way. Great breezes through the house, and very well furnished. Our family truly enjoyed our stay here. Lisa was very nice and gave us a tour of the house when we got there, which was very nice. Great location near Scarborough Beach. Everything you need is just a short car trip away. We hope to stay here again next year!!!!

Nice week at the beach

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and in a great location. It could use a little facelift and some paint but it was comfortable for our family. The location is great, a quick walk to the beach and there's a new trolly route which has a stop just down the block and takes you around to the block island ferry & also to the other end to Narragansett beach. Really nice week overall.

Owner's Response: Every spring we 'refresh' the house with paint and address any requests or discomforts noted from visitors to our house. In 2016 we updated and painted 2 bedrooms, and added an air conditioner upstairs. In 2017 we are painting the other 2 bedrooms and determine the best outdoor lighting along with other needs at that time. We enjoy that our house has a great comfy beach cottage feel with the old knotty pine panelling. --Lisa & Brian

This was our 3rd visit to the Scarborough Beach area with our family and our absolute favorite vacation so far! Each year we have stayed at a different location, trying to find that perfect fit.....I truly believe it was achieved this year while staying at 9 Desano Drive! Being so close to the water the cottage receives wonderfully cool breezes all day that keep it very cool. The upstairs rooms are easily cooled by the portable AC unit that the owners provide. We were all so comfortable at night! The neighborhood was lovely and we felt comfortable allowing our children to ride their bikes/scooter up and down the one-way drive. The walk to the beach was short making it easy to walk back during the day and walk our dogs or grab more snacks, etc, without missing out on beach fun. The cottage is also a short walk to the old missionary ruins to the left of Scarborough Beach which our family had discovered last year. We walked down there at night with the dogs and had so much fun (but beware of ticks! we brought several home with us without knowing!). We only wished the backyard was a bit bigger and maybe had a fire-pit, but that is reaching deep to find any fault at all with this incredible rental. Hoping to rent there again!

Cute cozy perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cute beach house for 4 nights and loved it! First off, it's walking distance to the beach so you can beat that. The rooms were good sized, clean and comfortable, kitchen clean, strong wi-fi, bathrooms and showers all clean, and the outdoor shower was a nice plus. We had 4 adults and 2 kids in our group and this house accommodated everyone easily. And Finally Lisa the owner was great, easy to communicate with and very friendly, would definitely stay at her place again.
