About Barbara Casavant

My husband, Ed, and I finally took the plunge - sold our house north of Boston and are now residents of Middletown, RI, as of August 2013! We've been married 52 years. We have two children, six grandchildren, one great grandson and one dog, a Labradoodle named George. I have a wonderful mother-in-law, who grew up in Newport and loves to spend time with us when she can.

Barbara Casavant purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Barbara Casavant chose Middletown

We have been vacationing in Newport for many years and decided it was time to purchase our own 'Seaside Escape'! We thoroughly enjoy all that Newport has to offer. Our children and grandchildren enjoy Newport as much as we do, and we know we will have frequent visitors!

What makes this apartment unique

This sunny vacation rental is close enough to walk, bike or ride to all of the wonderful activities in and around Newport, including both First and Second Beaches. Our location offers an escape from the crowds and tourists at the end of the day. It has a beautiful yard our renters can enjoy for grilling and relaxing and a deck/balcony off the master bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Barb and Ed,

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay here. The accommodations were very comfortable and the location was great! We also loved the outdoor deck – it’s great. We plan on returning next year! Thanks again.

Perfect Weekend Escape

  • 5 of 5

Barbara and Ed were so welcoming and accommodating! My fiancé and I are from NJ and needed a place to stay to plan our Newport wedding and Barbara's place was just perfect (the pictures really don't do it justice!) It was such a lovely place to come back to after running around from vendor to vendor; we felt right at home. They both really thought of everything to make sure their guests felt comfortable and being out-of-towners it was very much appreciated. We would definitely recommend!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th season at this warm, comfortable home. Barbara and Ed are lovely owners and are helpful with any questions you may have. We enjoy using the grill in the yard , and there are 2 picnic tables if you prefer to eat outside. We walk to Easton Beach and we enjoy our morning walks / runs in the area. We love Middletown for being a quiet area , a short ride away is Newport. Perfect sleep on great mattresses and enough towels to keep you set for over a week. We will be of course returning for our 5th season next summer.

A wonderful location with very accommodating owners! Barbara and Ed could not have been nicer or more welcoming. We planned a girls weekend and at the last minute my dog sitter cancelled. They allowed me to bring my dog so I wouldn't miss out on the fun. The rental is so close to all the sights of Newport yet in a neighborhood that is very safe for children. It is walkable to the beaches and to many restaurants. It is also equipped with everything you would need including towels and linens. I highly recommend this for a very enjoyable Newport stay.

Starting the summer right

  • 5 of 5

The rental is located in a beautiful location and has plenty of sleeping space. We had a relaxing stay and enjoyed our time together. Thoughtful owners provided both a Keurig and a container of filtered water, which saved us a lot of money. There were many games available in the house, along with towels and linens, so we didn't have to pack up our own house to go on a wonderful vacation.
