About the property

5 Bedrooms. 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Our beautiful home was built in 1902 and has all of the charm of a home from that era. We are located about 1 block from historic Bellevue Ave, where the mansions are located. And 1/2 block from Thames St which contains excellent food from around the world. Seafood, Italian, sushi or just a quick bite. Downtown Newport will also let you shop till you drop if that is what you prefer. Newport has something for everyone, there is a great park a short distance for young children.

About Phil Altman

We had been vacationing in Newport for about 10 years before we finally decided to purchase a home here. We did this because it gave us a home base in a placed we all loved to go to. Now we use this home to share with other vacationers who also want to experience Newport

Why Phil Altman chose Yachting Village

When we first saw this house, we both fell in love with it. The old world detail on the rail on the stairs. The classic bathroom on the 2nd floor, the door knobs all of the touches we liked. Most importantly was the size and the sleeping capacity of the home. Having a finished 3rd floor with a full bath was a bonus!!

Location, location, location!

  • 4 of 5

Big house very close to Thames St, Mansions, and Cliff Walk. Quick drive to the beaches. Easy to have lots to do with little kids. House is a bit dated and could use some updates but overall clean and comfortable for our extended family trip of 5 adults, toddler, and infant. Thanks to Phil as well for being extremely responsive to questions!!

Not up to VRBO standards

  • 1 of 5

This house does not live up to home away standards!!! The owner has neglected this property due to college kids that occupy house during the year ,which we met 2 of them while sitting on porch!!!Seems as though owners were neglectful of their needs as well,Neither owner or rental agent were apologetic of the issues that we indurred!!The house was beautiful as is Newport.In my opinion unless these issues with house are resolved I would look elsewhere fora vacation home.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you feel that way from the minute you checked in there were issues. I was responding to every communication within 30 min trying to find a solution for you. You didn't like the mattress I had my property manager deliver a new one. I bent over backwards I was tempted to tell you to leave fri night because I knew you were going to be trouble and give you a full refund All of our other guest had a great time this summer and we met and exceeded there expectations. If you were expecting the 4 Seasons yes I did not measure up to that but you didn't pay for that I provide I vacation home that is clean and complete as if I were staying there by the way I am putting a new kitchen in for next summer I am sorry you were uncomfortable that you met some college students who were my tenants. You are right this is a all year round rental property and the feeling is mutual you will not be staying in my house again

Comfortable, spacious Newport rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We rented to accommodate relatives for our son's wedding and stayed through the next week. The location was perfect; close to both restaurants and shops and to beaches. Be sure to get over to Mama Louisa's for a great Italian dinner and to Winner Winner for takeout fried chicken; both are a block away.

Beautiful home with plenty of room and great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Newport. The house is roomy and comfortable for many people. And the location cannot be beat with easy access to shopping, restaurants and beaches. We just got home and are already talking about next summers vacation!
