This house has it all: location, style, and comfort. If you've been looking for the perfect vacation house--look no further. This is it!
Grab your beach bag and bathing suit.....you won't need much more when you vacation at our home. We've thought of practically everything....beach chairs, coolers, hammock, umbrella, wagons and wonder-wheelers await! We used to vacation down the Cove and know how tiring preparing and packing for a beach vacation can be.
I have been employed as a Tax Assessor for the town of Bellingham, Massachusetts for almost 20 years. I started my search for a Cove property in 2007 and it took almost 2 years to find the right one! Our family has vacationed in the Cove for years.
Elizabeth (Betsy) Cournoyer purchased this house in 2009
You can walk or bike to everything! Park the car and forget about the keys. The beach is truly a 5-minute walk from the front door--but you might need some motivation to leave the tranquility of the beautiful deck. There are several restaurants within walking distance and the Block Island ferry is exactly 1 mile from the front steps.
Just pack your clothes and grab some food on your way down! I am passionate about my rental product and want my guests to RELAX. Don't worry about sheets, towels, beach gear, umbrellas, and beach chairs---all of this awaits your arrival. Please read the reviews BEFORE you pack---it will save you valuable beach time!
The property was impeccably clean and beautiful. We were a 5 minute walk from Roger Wheeler beach. The only thing we had to bring with us was food. Betsy was very welcoming and gracious. We had such an enjoyable week. If you are looking for a beach house that is even more than what is in the ad, this the property for you.
We had the best time at this lovely home so close to the beaches - 5 minute walk to Roger Wheeler State Beach, short drive to Scarborough, and minutes from Galilee and Narragansett! The home was well appointed, great kitchen to work in, deck for extra space, and just very comfortable for all of us! Will definitely return!
We had an incredible week at this property! The house is bright, clean, and beautifully decorated. It was such a stress-free week! Everything we could need to enjoy the beach (which was a very short walk away) was right at our finger tips! We enjoyed evenings with family on the large deck as we watched the sunset. We will surely be back, this house had it all!
We loved this home! It had everything our family of 5 needed! With three younger kids, it was a nice little walk to a fantastic beach. The house was so clean and the owner is so accommodating! Highly recommend! It is a true hidden gem in an awesome area of Narragansett!!
Staying here for my academic year at URI. The house is great, and Betsy (the owner) is EXTREMELY acccomodating! Anytime that my roommates or I have needed something fixed, she is quickly on it. And she is always reachable and friendly.
The kitchen is amazing, and has every practical appliance that you would need included. The back deck is perfect for lunches on sunny days, and makes a great study spot. I was really impressed that the outdoor shower had hot water (as opposed to the last house I stayed in where the water was ice cold) for cleaning off after beach trips down the road.
Living room is extremely comfortable and a great hangout spot.
The one thing I love about the upstairs, that I was originally concerned about, is that the walls aren't paper thin. My roommate can watch her TV at a normal to loud volume, and I don't hear it (or the noise is minimal) in my room next door when I am trying to study.
Overall, this has been one of my best renting experiences thus far in terms of housing and management.
This was our first vacation to RI in years. This home made it very enjoyable. Betsy has thought of everything, just bring your clothes. Most rentals have the bare essentials this one is fully "turn key". The cozy atmosphere and modern furnishings make you feel at home. The attention to detail made for a stress free week. The location allows for many activities. We would definitely recommend this rental, it will not disappoint.
