Nice Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation house. It is very close to some of the best beaches in Rhode Island and includes a free pass to two of those beaches.

It is very clean, well maintained, and very comfortable. It has so many features to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The outside shower is a nice feature. If you decide to eat in, you can use the full service kitchen or use the great Webber gas grill on the deck overlooking the pond. If you decide to eat out you have to check out Champlains in Point Judith for sea food. Or check out Food Network star Guy Fieri's recomendation for the Crazy Burger in Narragansette.

Owner's are very friendly and provide great customer service. I would not only recommend this property to a friend, but will rent again in the future.

The Perfect cottage, only wished it was closer to beach and had ocean views.

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage for those of us who are not big fans of direct sunlight, bright rooms, and humidity. The cottage was cool & dark which was perfect. The AC units were a God send because the weather was VERY humid. A bit disappointed in the area because other than going to the beach, there isn't anything else to do if it's hot & humid. We brought our bikes in hopes of riding through the very quiet neighborhood but it was too humid. There werent any good shopping areas for ocean side souvenirs or trinkets. But, there were plenty of chain stores in Westerley such as Walmart, Stop and Shop, Michaels, Home Goods, JC penney, Job Lots, Benneys, Pier One Imports and Dollar Tree. All in all, I realized the whole experience wasn't for me but the cottage is a wonderful place to rent if you love driving to the beach, humidity, rain, mosquitos, fishing, watching TV, reading and not shopping. Rob & Diane are wonderful & so is their cottage, just havery a back up plan in case of bad weather.

Well kept quiet neighborhood

This was the 3rd year that we rented this house and each year gets better.It was a pleasant surprise to arrive and find so much had been updated. From the floors to the appliances and furniture it made for an even more enjoyable stay. Looking forward to next year!

Nice house and area. Cleaners not so much.

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived garbage cans were both full and smelly. House was as described except for TV's - none in the bedroom. Very good sized house for our large family. We did not have pets in the house but our full deposit was not returned - cleaners claimed we had a dog in the house and owners state neighbors are watching and we had a dog..which we most certainly did not! Don't even own one. Gas grill is dangerous, beyond what a renter should have to clean but was told if we wanted to use it, was our responsibility. Can't recommend based upon our experience. Sorry.

Beautiful, Clean and Private ~ LOVELY

  • 4 of 5

We just got home from a fantastic week in this beautifully decorated home. We arrived to a clean very well updated and well cared for property. The reverse floor plan worked very well for us with a large family. The deck worked great for cooking for us. (Ran out of gas but many close local places to refill.). Fresh Seafood is nearby as well as local farms.

Owners were right on top of any issues we had and returned my call right away when we had a problem with dryer which was awesome to vacation by the beach and be able to do some laundry right at home.

Just pack your sheets and towels, a bathing suit and some sunscreen the rest is all right there. The Beach pass to two local beaches was a great bonus!!! Charlestown is a quaint beach town and close to everything. The neighbors were very friendly and the neighborhood has NO traffic and streets are posted at 10 miles an hour due to size of the roads and kids able to ride bikes around with no worries.

Rob and Diane you should post some newer pics the ones you have up are nice but don't do it justice. This beautiful house is Defintely a place to make many memories. I know we just added a bunch in our family!! Thank You!! Laurie
