About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

The house is light and open with summer amenities including window unit air conditioning, washer/dryer, dishwasher, flat screen TV, cable/wireless internet, ceiling fans, outside deck, outdoor shower, private yard, BBQ grill, fire pit, and ample parking.

Narragansett is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in New England. Within walking distance is Kelly Beach, home of the Bonnet Shores Beach Club. This family friendly beach is great for collecting shells, building sandcastles and playing in the gentle waves. Also, walking distance to Little Beach with views of Jamestown and Newport Bridges.

Down the road is Narragansett Town Beach (The Pier), great for avid surfers and boogie boarders. The town has many attractions such as the Towers, The Coast Guard House and 'the wall', Narragansett's famed seawall.

Dining: Narragansett is home to many iconic restaurants. Aunt Carrie's is a seafood establishment which has been in business for over 90 years. Little in this restaurant has changes since it's opening day. Spain Restaurant is another local favorite. This restaurant serves up Spanish cuisine to a packed house almost every night. Great for the kids is the Mew's Tavern in nearby Wakefield. A tree in the middle of the restaurant provides kids the opportunity to write their names with marker (and not get into trouble)! And the funky 'Got Beer/Need Beer' signs further enhances the casual, fun nature of this great establishment,

Nearby: No trip to RI is complete without at least one day trip to Newport. Home of the mansions, Fort Adams and countless festivals, Newport is a tourists paradise with something for everyone. In nearby Charlestown, RI there is the 'Fantastic Umbrella Factory' a quirky outdoor shopping experience complete with cafe, and petting zoo....definitely something not seen every day!! Watch Hill in Westerly is another great day trip. Home to the country's oldest carousel and some of the most breathtaking homes in RI, it is a day trip everyone will love.

About Ted & Keri Keenan

Our family lives in MA and has been coming to Bonnet Shores for 46 years. Many, many happy memories growing up on Kelly Beach, building sand castles, playing wiffle ball on the beach and with kids in the neighborhood. Now my kids and their cousins are building memories here :)

Ted & Keri Keenan purchased this house in 2015

Why Ted & Keri Keenan chose Bonnet Shores

Beach house near most beautiful hidden beach in New England, Kelly Beach. Moderate water temperatures and surf make it ideal for swimming and playing in the water. Rocks at either end of the beach for exploring hermit crabs and sea life. Also walking distance to Little Beach, the Point, and Wesquage Pond. Family friendly area with lots of kids riding bikes, short drive to Brickley's Ice Cream. Dinner at Coast Guard House or a day trip to Newport/Jametown are great options.

What makes this house unique

Great balance of price and walking distance to Kelly Beach and Little Beach.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and is situated in a nice neighborhood and offers lots of space. The nearby beach, pond and coast walks are very close and quite interesting. The supermarket, playground for the kids and other nice beaches are all very close by car (5-15 min). The owner is very nice and responds quickly to our question via email.

Perfect Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a perfectly clean and well-appointed home on Saturday, August 19th. The space was bright and airy with 3 large bedrooms. Being so close to Kelly Beach was a huge plus for our family. This is the first home in 4 years of renting in Bonnet that we would love to come back to!

Great little vacation home, convenient to Kelly Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Bonnet Shores. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood that is about a 10 minute walk to the beach - we walked every day, and enjoyed time on the beautiful Kelly Beach, which is great for young children. The house has the amenities you need for vacation, and there are many restaurants and things to do close by (in North and South Kingstown, other parts of Narragansett, and Newport). The back deck is a nice place to sit and enjoy the weather, and outdoor shower is a plus. Ted was very responsive and helpful.

I stayed at this property for the entire academic year September-May and I loved it! The listing description was very accurate & the pictures match the house exactly. The property was clean and well-maintained and the owner provided great customer service! He was prompt and responsive to all of our needs. The house is so warm and inviting and made all of us feel right at home! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. It is in a great neighborhood and is so close to the beach!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house! There was plenty of room for us to spread out and it was a short walk to the beach. There was shopping close by and several good restaurants to choose from. We are looking forward to going back!

We love it here!

  • 5 of 5

We love Bonnet! This home was perfect for our family of 5! It was a quick bike ride to and from Kelly beach. The home had an outdoor shower which made it quick and easy to get all the sand off from our daily beach visits. It was a very hot mugy 1st week and the air conditioners in each room made it comfortable. The open kitchen dinning and living room was perfect for family time each night, we played board games together and watch the Olympic Games. Brickleys ice cream was a fun after dinner treat, we also went to the coast guard house for dinner and seaside on the pier, walked the small shops and enjoyed the sunset view. One day we took a break from the beach and drove to the mystic aquarium in CT, beautiful place great for kids, we all enjoyed it very much. Roches market had great fresh meats which I picked up daily for dinner and grilled. One night we took the kids to adventure land for mini golf, and bumper boats, warning, you get really wet! I would recommend this home for a rental, I know I will be back next year. Thank you for having such a wonderful place for my family to stay and enjoy RI!
