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 Middletown

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 to this wonderful beaching and boating community. Briarwood Beach House (BBH) brings us one step closer to that dream!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Great area within walking distance to Easton's beach! Most mornings were spent enjoying a cup of coffee while walking to the beach,. The house is very well maintained and VERY clean. Plenty of linens (bring your own beach towels), and plenty of room for our group of 8 adults We never felt cramped. The kitchen is stocked nicely (we cooked a lot), and the deck was perfect for our evening meals. Plenty of parking and ample space in the garage for our toys.....kayaks, paddleboards, etc. Sara and Lance are very helpful and welcoming! Great experience!

It is important to us to provide a clean, well-stocked home, so our guests can enjoy all the comforts of home, even when away on vacation.

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.

We had a wonderful experience at this property for my best friend's bachelorette! Even though the weather was rainy all weekend, we had a great time hanging out at the house, and there was so much to do close by in the area!

We loved this house and location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (2 daughters, 1 exchange student, brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew) loved spending the holiday week in this house. The owners are super organized and helpful, the house had all of the amenities to make it feel like home, and the location was perfect. We were 2 blocks from first beach and we spent a good part of our days walking the beach and cliff walk with our children and dogs. There is so much to see in Newport!

The house was much more spacious than we expected. There were eight of us and we had plenty of room to spare. The house could easily accommodate 3 more people comfortably. The dining area and living area were also roomy and everything was in excellent condition.

Thank you Sara and Lance for opening up your home to us. Hopefully we will see you next year! Happy 2017.
