About Sara and Lance Minor

My husband Lance and I are avid windsurfers. We love the charm of Newport, the wide sandy beaches, and the friendly community.

Sara and Lance Minor purchased this house in 2009

Why Sara and Lance Minor chose Newport East

I have been in love with the Newport area for 20 years. My husband and I met windsurfing, and spent many a windy day on the shores of 3rd beach. We were engaged in Newport, and have spent all of our anniversaries there. Our dream is to eventually retire from the Boston area to this wonderful beaching and boating community!

Fantastic for a large family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband, my son & his girlfriend, along with my parents and aunt & uncle, have all just returned from a 10 day stay at Briarwood. We were thoroughly impressed from start to finish. From the first hello from the wonderful owners Sara & Lance, right through to our departure. We had no issues with the house whatsoever. Cleanliness, well provided for, it has everything you need, with, a wonderful cosy personal touch. The owners have made this an ideal home from home for a perfect vacation. You want for nothing during your stay. The location of this property is marvellous also. All the splendour of Newport on your doorstep! Newport has stolen our hearts and we will be back, with Briarwood Beach House in our sights!! Thanks for the memories :-) :-)

A wonderful home and great location, with the best landlords. Very clean, spacious, and well-stocked with every amenity possible, including toys for all ages. Owners respond immediately to any concerns. Our extended family was very comfortable here for 6 weeks.

Great rental in quiet neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Briarwood Beach House for our sons wedding in Newport. We didn't want to stay in downtown Newport with all the congestion, noise and parking issues. Enjoyed our stay at Sara and Lance's rental. The house is very clean, plenty of towels, a well stocked kitchen, high chairs, beach gear etc. that you won't find at other beach rentals. Atlantic Grill, Tickets, Cumberland Farms, beach and Cliff Walk are all in walking distance. Sara and Lance thought of everything to make our stay comfortable - thank you!

This property was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the beach house because my son got married at the Newport Beach club. The house was within walking distance to the venue. We stayed for a few days before the wedding and a few days after the wedding. We walked to the beach and to several restaurants for dinner. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood. The house has a wonderful, big deck that we could all congregate on in the daytime. The house was clean and well maintained with a large kitchen with all the amenities you could want. We had a wonderful time and would look into renting this beach house again for a summer getaway.

Beautiful rental

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as represented. It was spacious and very well maintained. The owners were very helpful with a binder of information to outline everything from the WiFi password to pamphlets for local restaurants and businesses. The home is close to multiple beaches and in a quiet neighborhood. I would not hesitate to rent this property again if I return to the area.
