This two bedroom apartment is just blocks from Easton's Beach and Bellevue Avenue shopping, restaurants and museums. Set in the quiet 'Top of the Hill' neighborhood of stately Victorians, this rental offers 1000 square feet of light and airy living space with off street parking, separate entry and side yard. This property was completely renovated in 2008 and air conditioning was installed in 2014. Park your car and stroll into town, where you can take advantage of the trolley car system to get you to any of the local attractions.
Things to do: Newport has a wealth of outdoor activities, but rainy days can be fun too. There is excellent sailing in the harbor; you can rent small sailboats at Sail Newport or enjoy a sunset cruise on some of the larger yachts. Kayaks are available for rent down on Thames street to take out in the harbor or to some of the inlets off Ocean Drive. Beaches abound along Ocean Drive; Easton's beach (1st) is just 5 blocks from the house and Middletown's beautiful 2nd beach is a short bike or car ride. Hiking and bird watching is available at Norman's Bird Sanctuary and the famed Cliff Walk begins about 5 blocks from the house. Lots of people like to bike the Ocean Dive (8 miles long) or up Indian Avenue along the Sakonnet River. On rainy days, one can visit the mansions along Bellevue Avenue, the Newport Art Museum, Touro Synagogue, Redwood Library, Museum of Yachting or just go shopping on Bellevue or down by the wharfs. If you are a history buff, the Historical Society has walking tours or the owners can lend you an AIA copy of self guided tours. The owners will be glad to recommend the best restaurants depending on your budget. There is a local theater and a cabaret, many art galleries and a movie theater in Washington Square (about a half mile away). Almost every weekend there is a festival or food fair either in Touro Park or down by the yachting center. It is hard to get bored in Newport!

My friends and I visited Newport to celebrate our birthdays and we were not disappointed. The house was close to everything and located in a charming, walkable neighborhood . The unit was very nice, and decorated beautifully. It was bright and cheery, but beware of the stairs that lead to the unit as they are narrow and steep. If you have any issues with stairs you should keep that in mind. New bed sheets would have been nice, but otherwise it was wonderful! We would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful apartment in a great location
My husband and I spent a long weekend in this lovely apartment in the heart of Newport. The location was perfect. It was close to beaches, downtown, parks and a short drive to many other lovely Rhode Island towns. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very quite and comfortable. The kitchen is stocked nicely for anyone that wants to cook in. We loved our stay here and would highly recommend it to others.
Great place to stay
Very roomy, quiet and well decorated. Good location for walking to restaurants and markets. Only negative are the stairs. Lots to do in Newport.
Wonderful house to share
The Goff's home is a very beautifully restored Victorian with a well-designed third-floor apartment. Comfortable and airy it accommodates four people in a great setting, close to Broadway and Bellevue. Our first VRBO and we will probably use the service again.
Very nice 3rd floor apartment. Worked great for our family of 4. Owners are kind and accommodating.
House and property is well kept. Location is within very close driving distance of everything we wanted to see this week. Layout of family room suited our young family well as we could watch tv or movies to unwind or wait out any inclimate weather. Would be a readers paradise.
Nice apartment in a good location.
Cute apartment in good location. The owners obviously have a nice eye for design. Apartment was clean and comfortable. One suggestion would be to upgrade the beds and linens. Otherwise was pretty perfect.
Newport is well known for international sailing, beautiful beaches, music festivals, great shopping and restaurants, tennis hall of fame, amazing architecture from colonial to shingle style to the mansions of the super-rich and the spectacular ocean drive along the coast.
