Feel the stress of our long winter melt away and enjoy a relaxing summer vacation in our charming cottage with some of New England’s most beautiful beaches just minutes away. Located in a quiet Point Judith neighborhood, you'll find yourselves centrally located with Narragansett’s best in casual and fine dining all within a mile or two. Two of Narragansett's most magnificent beaches are just over a mile away, Scarborough (known best for its amazing surf and boardwalk) and Roger Wheeler (its calm surf is perfect for families with young children.)

Your ‘home away from home’ provides the comfort of central A/C, a fully equipped kitchen, cable HDTV/DVD/stereo, Wi-Fi, washer/dryer, a Weber grill and an enclosed hot/cold outdoor shower. We also offer a storage shed for our summer guests with loads of items for you to use during your stay. You'll find beach chairs, boogie boards, a cooler, beach toys, yard toys and games, as well as a beach cart.

Sip your morning coffee, while relaxing to the song of chirping birds and the scamper of our curious neighborhood bunnies on the outdoor patio! This is the perfect spot for all your après beach activities. End your busy day with a relaxing family dinner (perhaps some lobsters and steamers fresh from the Galilee docks right down the road) and enjoy the distant fog horn and scenic backyard setting.

We're on a spacious corner lot, which offers lots of room for playing! Our road is a small neighborhood circle - perfect for riding bikes and scooters. Fisherman's Memorial State Park is less than 1/4 mile away and has a small playground and basketball court for the kids to keep busy during the downtime away from the beach. There is also a fabulous Farmers' Market held at the park's entrance on Sundays.

This is an owner-managed home. All communications will be directly with the homeowners.The majority of our guests have chosen our home year after year for their summer vacation...and we believe that is the greatest compliment! We take pride in providing a comfortable, clean environment. Prior to renting to our summer guests, our home is thoroughly scrubbed and cleaned, with bedding and curtains freshly washed and/or replaced. Our goal is to provide you with a vacation experience we would want for ourselves!

Please note, our home is best suited for families with children. Our home is not appropriate for large gatherings such as family reunions, large celebrations, or groups of singles. We do also require a minimum renter age of 26 years old. Thank you for your understanding.

We also have a 4 bedroom home in Eastward Look available (closer to Scarborough Beach about 1 mile away). Take a look: HomeAway 113596

Great Location !

  • 5 of 5

Although the house needs a "bit" of sprucing up - all in all this was a great place and made for a great vacation ! We stayed two weeks and never had an issue with anything. Everything works, all the beds were comfy. We only used one but laid on them all before deciding which one. There are only two of us so we only used a small section of the house but all of the three bedrooms are large, airy and comfy. The downstairs is really nice and another large bathroom down there with the washer and dryer. The yard is big and roomy. All sun. Outside shower is great ! Small refrigerator but an additional one in corner if you need more room . Everything you need is there ! I would not recommend this place for a large family to stay in but for 8 or less it's perfect !!!

Wonderful, clean, an centrally located.

  • 4 of 5

Going on vacation with four teenagers is never easy, but we were able to pull it off with out a hitch. Boogie boards in the shed, fast internet, a kitchen with everything that you need, and above all very clean. Evening dinners outside with the kids were great. Beaches within minutes. We could drop those who wanted off at the beach and then go and do other things.

Tracy was very helpful. We had some hiccups, of our own making, but she was there to help us through them.

Newport was nice: cliff walk, and downtown shops. Everyone was so polite. RI drivers are some of the most considerate I have ever experienced.

Narragansett is a nice little town. They have an wonderful Indian restaurant there. We ate Indian half the week.

Beaches were okay, water was very comfortable, but our 17 year old son wished for bigger waves. Scarborough Beach waves were bigger than Wheeler, but apparently not big enough.

Great family escape!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Narragansett. When we arrived to the home it was extremely clean and nicely kept. The bedrooms are spacious and the two bathrooms were a huge plus for our stay. The backyard is spacious and in a lovely quite neighborhood. We took many walks with the kids each night.

The homeowners have a black binder with SO MUCH helpful information like where to eat and sites to visit. Not having stayed in the area before this was perfect!

We will defiantly be return house guests!

Great place for adults and children

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in a quiet neighbor (cul-de-sac). It has a finished basement with a game room, tv, full bath, and washer/dryer. Up stairs are 3 bedrooms and another full bath. Nice kitchen and good size living room. A very comfortable house. The back yard is a nice grassy area and a patio with table/umbrella and chairs. The neighborhood is quiet. House is located central to many restaurants and beaches. We really enjoyed staying here and hope to make it back next year. Also, the few questions we had about Narragansett/beach parking were quickly answered by the owners. A very enjoyable place to stay. Would highly recommend it.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review!!

Point Judith is a wonderful coastal community with activities and attractions to accommodate your entire family! Whether you enjoy relaxing at the beach, swimming, fishing, boating, or hiking, you'll find it in Narragansett. Catch the ferry to Block Island and spend the day exploring and visiting the many wonderful shops and restaurants the island has to offer. Walk to the local farmer's market to enjoy the freshest produce in the area. The kids will love a trip to Adventureland (less than 10 minutes away) with plenty of mini golf, go-carts, batting cages and bumper boats for everyone to enjoy. Explore many other nearby sites including historic Newport, downtown Providence and Providence Place (amazing shopping), Roger Williams Zoo, Mystic Aquarium and Seaport, Foxwoods and Mogehan Casinos, Watch Hill and Misquamicut.
