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

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.

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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great place to stay and its close proximity to the beach was a real plus. The place was very user friendly and great for kids. My only issue with the place was that there needs to be a window fan or a/c unit upstairs as the upstairs bedrooms got quite hot. Other than that no complaints and was convenient to many of The attractions of Southern New England.

Wonderful Property! Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful. It was very clean and well stocked with games, cookware, and beach/yard accessories. You can't beat how close it is to the beach too. The private backyard is great for evening dinners at the picnic table. The owners were wonderful as well. There were even fresh cut flowers waiting for us when we arrived. We are looking to rent again one week this summer.

Beautiful, relaxing, cozy

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. It had everything we needed to make us feel comfortable and very much at home. Lisa and Brian were very friendly, helpful, hospitable. The cottage was immaculate throughout. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in this area. Lovely views, quiet neighborhood and nice neighbors, too!

This cottage will always be special to me for many reasons and our time there has had such a impact that we hope to move to the area soon!

Thank you, Lisa!
