Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Can you say location? Sunsets were awesome and kids loved that they could climb down the ladder and be in the water. Close enough to Newport without the hassle of the traffic.

NO Amenities or Luxuries Here

  • 1 of 5

When we arrived at the house we were disappointed about several things. First there was no air conditioning which was very bad when you are trying to get ready for a wedding and are sweating the whole time. The advertisement for this house should make people aware of the lack of air conditioning. Second we could not get any of the TV's to work and with 5 kids that was stressful to say the least. Third there was also no Wi-Fi, again stressful with 5 kids. And lastly, although there is a hot tub on the deck, it is not usable by any means, very dirty with old stagnant water. We left at 12:00 am after the wedding was over rather than waiting until the morning because we just couldn't stand another night in that hot house. This was the cheapest house in the area to rent so in this case I guess we got what we paid for. We should have heeded the other warnings but attending the wedding was already costing a fortune so we went with a less expensive house. Wish now that we would have just went to a hotel

Owner's Response: It's funny that I get a review like that. I went out of my way to make sure the accommodations were the best and I have a lot of them. I allowed them to have 11 people, which is normally not the case. The place had a fan in every room. I let them stay for a 3 night rental at a discount when I normally rent for the week. And they have the nerve to complain, I'm very disappointed; especially since I tried to help him out with his health insurance. The unfortunate thing as a landlord is you get one party like this every couple of years. Jim

Worst rental every

  • 1 of 5

We rented this house in August 2014 and were extremely disappointed. What we received was not what was advertised. The Jacuzzi was dirty, there was no kayak or sunfish boat, there were 3 TVs but only the 19inch worked with no remote, there was no Wi-Fi and only 2 bar stools in the bar area. We were a family of 5 and there were only 2 chairs (one of which was broken) and a small bistro table in the den and 2 chairs with a rusted table on the deck and not enough silverware so we wind up going out for meals. When we arrived there were dirty clothes in the washer, clothes in the dryer and dirty close on the floor. There was no working smoke alarm, electrical outlet covers were broke, there was a hole in the ceiling, and one of the windows in the den was broken and had jagged glass in the frame. If it was not for my family flying in I would have left. I would not recommend this property to my worst enemy. All I can say is make sure to get up-to-date pictures of the property & amenities advertised and a contract if you rent this property. The landlord was argumentative and we had to have the police involved.

Owner's Response: Let me just correct the major complaint. It was me that called the police. The party showed up with no money for the rental period. I told them to leave and they wouldn't. They stayed in a house on the water. They told me they had no place else to go. Then they started ordering me around and telling me what to do. They ended up squatting in my house and left owing me $800.00. It was a very disturbing event. Unfortunately, It's not a hotel so I don't have the authority and security to remove certain parties. I run my business on trust and relationships. It's unfortunate when this happens, but as you can see from the other reviews 95% of the people enjoy the place and several people have come back multiple times.

fun time

  • 4 of 5

Great location to wherever you want to go and the waterfront deck was super..all day long. The owner lives upstairs and was always available. The accommodations suited our needs and a good time was had by all.

Not for a family

  • 1 of 5

In spite of the nice landscape and a pretty house, some features don't match with my expectations. We were 7 but the house given for 8 is for a maximum of 4 or 5. Not enough beds, forks, towels, tea towels. Extra sheets were not clean. We were short of almost everything. The announcement was not good.

We are used to rent houses for holidays and this one is our worst experience and unfortunately it is also the most expensive.

Sorry but I am not happy with my stay.

Owner's Response: I want to apologize if you were not totally satisfied. As I stated during our phone conversation, the house has 3 bedrooms, which consist of a queen and 2 full size beds. The house also has 2 leather couches that are approximately 8 feet long. When you notified me of the shortage of forks, towels and tea towels I immediately sent you more. As far as sheets not being clean, I have my cleaning lady check everything before she finishes. She also works as a professional cleaning person for the Viking Hotel in Newport, RI. I'm sorry you were disgruntled. Best to you and your family in the future!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The house met our needs perfectly; great location, lots of room, clean. Landlord was very accomodating, especially since my week was not from Saturday to Saturday. I would stay at this property again and would definitely recommend it to friends or family. It was a great party house-we had a great time and a great family reunion.
