Great house close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Newport and this house was perfect. Loved that it was right downtown and we could walk to the restaurants, shops and parks. The beaches were a short drive away. The house was nicely decorated and very clean with a cute back patio. We would come here again!

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I actually thought that I had written a review when we came home last summer however after reading these I did not see ours so I am going to write it now since we loved this home. This house is exactly what I expected and then some.... location was great and the home is clean, roomy and so comfortable. We cooked, grilled and went out and found that this was by far the most comfortable home we have rented in Newport in the past 5 years. The owners are fantastic to work with, very responsive.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for making our stay in Newport so memorable! We had a lovely week and really enjoyed the house. It is steps from Thames Street and all of the shops, restaurants and activity, and about a 10 min walk to the main harbor area of Newport. It was fun to live downtown and be walkable to so many things! We also enjoyed walking through the gardens of the Elms property (one of the Newport mansions) which is only a block away. If you have children, there is a great park along the water (King Park on Wellington Avenue) which is a 5-10 min walk. Beaches and Cliffwalk are easy to get to from this location (longer walk or a short drive). The house itself is clean and has all the gear you need for cooking and relaxing at home; good appliances, nice kitchen tools and cute decor. We really enjoyed grilling and relaxing on the back patio (very private with fencing and lovely gardening). Although close to many restaurants and bars, we found the house to be quiet and peaceful. As one reviewer mentioned, the third bedroom is small, but this wasn't a problem for us. The house does not have central air, but the air conditioning units work well and we all slept comfortably. Kris and David are super responsive owners if you have any problems or questions during the week, and this was greatly appreciated on our end. Would definitely consider renting again!

a little taken back!

  • 2 of 5

Just arrived. We are a little taken back. First the new outdoor shower is not enclosed that should be mentioned. Second one of the three bedrooms is a closet, very very snug for a teenager. Also this bedroom has no AC, very hot. Parking is very difficult, when we arrived had to drive around the block at least six times.

Owner's Response: We are a little taken back by this review! Please let me address some of these complaints: The outdoor shower is not enclosed but it is still very useful as a second shower. The small bedroom is actually listed as 'small' under the photo of it on our listing. I think you can also see from the photo it is small. Still, it does have a full size bed, nightstand and closet. There are 3 a/c units in the house and two are upstairs. If the bedroom doors are open and two are running, we have found that they cool the whole second floor. However, the temperature has been in the 90's so I'm sure the house is hotter than usual. I'm very surprised to hear about their challenge parking. We have owned the home for 9 years and have NEVER had a problem parking more than a few cars away from either the front or rear entrance. We always hear such warm and positive comments from our guests about the house and the location and have many that return. We're sorry the house is not what they expected.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect walking location to the wharf, Cliffwalk and downtown Thames shopping, restaurants/cafes and bars. Family really enjoyed walking Cliffwalk and the beaches. House was clean and included everything that we needed and very comfortable and spacious for 3 adults and 2 children. Very charming and private back yard. Would definitely rent again!!!!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2015. Location was great for walking and parking lot was conveniently located across the street. The fenced patio was great for kids and private. Bedrooms were spacious and the house was very clean. Owners very nice and accommodating to our small pet. We had a great time and we plan on staying here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! We are glad you and your family had a nice vacation in Newport and enjoyed the house. I just wanted to clarify, for future guests, that we provide one guest street pass for parking right near the house. The parking lot across the street is for additional cars. Thanks!
