We had a fantastic time at this beach cottage. A few minutes away from the beach which was excellent for small children. Central location for driving trips to Newport or Watch Hill. House had everything we needed. Toys and beach toys were awesome for the kids. Wagon to pull beach toys/chairs/umbrellas was a key to our beach outings. Lobster pot was great, actually went home not interested in eating lobster for awhile. Even used the kite on a windy day. Plan to return in the future!
This was my family's second year renting this house and we loved it even more the second time around. The house is just minutes from the local beaches, great restaurants and plenty for the family to do! The house is equipped with everything you would need for an amazing week including a grill, washer/dryer, beach chairs and an amazing outdoor shower. The owner's were very friendly, welcoming and responsive when we had questions. Thank you for welcoming us at your amazing home!
Once again we had a great time at the rental property in Rhode Island. The house is always clean, neat and the flowers in bloom. Thank you owner for adding the nice touch of chocolate and coffee. We would highly recommend this property to our friends and relative as long as they don't take our week!! lol! The weather was great we even tried kayaking this year and will definitely do it again next year.
This was our first stay at the cottage ( which is really a good size) but I suspect it will not be the last. Being from RI I always wanted to rent near Sand Hill Cove aka Roger Wheeler beach. It is the quietest and calmest of the area beaches. The location could not have been better; lovely street and nice walk to beach. Galilee also nice walking distance for mornings or just to see sunset and have some ice cream.
The house itself was exactly what I expected and so clean! Especially loved the outdoor shower and laundry facilities. It had everything we could think of needing from a lobster pot to fans and a beach umbrella.
Owners were a pleasure to work with.
Once again we had a wonderful time in Rhode Island. The location was perfect for going to the beach and visiting with friends and family who also rented in the area. We are able to bring our motorcycle along with the cars because there is ample parking withte circular driveway. Thehouse has everything we need - that is why we have come back for 4 years in a row.
We were pleasantly surprised with the cottage when we arrived for our vacation this Summer. Not only was it just steps to the beach but it was situated in a neighborhood that was quiet and beautifully landscaped. The owners had chocolate and coffee waiting for us when we arrived which was a nice touch. The cottage had plenty of space for our family and a nice yard to sit out and relax in. The owners were a pleasure to work with. We will definitely consider this house again.
