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 54 years. We have two children, six grandchildren, two great grandchildren and one dog, a Labradoodle named George.
Barbara Casavant purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Barbara Casavant chose Newport East
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.

Easy driving distance to Newport attractions and beaches
This very clean apartment is situated above the main house in a residential neighborhood about 2 miles from Newport center. It’s about 3/4 mile from the closest beach that I could find. I was traveling solo as a new transfer to the East Coast at Thanksgiving time with my well-travelled, beach loving dog. I didn’t give 5 stars only because the apartment was not quite as private and as close to beach as I thought. Also there was an issue with locks to the common entrance as I got locked out 3 times (1st time my fault as I had assumed that the keys supplied would open the entrance door from the back deck). In warmer seasons, the location is likely to be more walkable. Hosts were responsive and hospitable.
This apartment is on the second floor of a two-family home. The entrance is off the side deck in a fenced yard. It is usually left open because it is a common area to the building. However, the security of the rental property is controlled by the tenant. We have since added a key for this door in the event it is accidentally locked.
Immaculate and beautifully decorated and appointed.
Could not have asked for more.
Weekend with family
Don’t pass this one up! Beautifully decorated warm and cozy! We were going to a wedding on a very rainy day and Barbara lent us umbrellas. Location is just an 8 minute drive to downtown Newport. We really enjoyed our stay
Thanks so much Debbie. Please come back. Would love to host you again!
We were here for a wedding at Newport Vineyard and wanted something close. It was.. property was within 10-15 min of Newport..which was great! Fully equipped apartment..comfortable beds., great place!
We use Vrbo properties in most of our travels and always have that moment of concern that we may have made a mistake when we choose a fairly valued rental. We were so pleased to find that our choice a Barbara's place exceed our expectations. While we enjoyed looking at the nearby beaches the location was very convenient for all of the other attractions. Barbara's rental is the entire 2nd floor of her home with great privacy. It has all of the amenities of a home. TV, cooking utensils off street parking and great support from the owners. Enjoy.
This property is ideal for a stay in Newport/Middletown area. There are restaurants, shops and convenience stores close by and it is an easy walk to two different beaches. The home is beautifully appointed with everything needed for a stay there. The owners are very thoughtful and personable. We had a pretty strict schedule and they made sure that we knew they were there if we needed anything in the moments that we had downtime. I asked, in passing, if they knew about rental bikes. Within 5 minutes, Beverly texted info on a bike rental place. Really great! The beds are comfortable and there are some fun family games. There is also a great bookshelf of books. Next time I hope I have free time to read! It is centrally located to everything in Newport and the area. I would stay here again!
