Why Liza Ward chose Matunuck
When we first stepped foot in Matunuck we loved the people and the feel of the place. It was, and remains, a laid back and comfortable place.
What makes this Apartment unique
This house has a large deck that overlooks a nature preserve. We have seen groundhogs, foxes, raccoons, woodchucks, and even an occasional deer--none of which ever seem to bother anyone in the neighborhood or cause any trouble. A wide variety of birds visit the preserve throughout the year. We don't need to drive to be at the ocean, to have a drink or a meal at one of the several local eateries and bars. Matunuck is an easy going place to bike, skate or just walk around. If you forget milk or eggs or want some fresh, locally grown corn, all you need do is walk or bike to the local, well stocked grocery or our own Carpenter's Farm Stand. We often walk along the beaches to turn over rocks, pick up shells, watch the surfers or just enjoy the cool sea breeze and smells. Theater by the Sea has live shows all summer...a very popular place.
Sports & Adventure Activities
A little piece of heaven
My family and I spent a week in the top apartment. It was very clean and well maintained. The deck off the back is huge and very private . This was our 8th trip to RI and this place has been the best location. You can walk to the town beach in less than 5 minutes. The beaches are great and loved my time there. The location is perfect, very easy drive to Newport and other locations. There are many great places to eat and drink close by. I hope to go back in a couple years.
Liza was great and very easy to communicate with. What a great host - genuinely happy we had a great time.
Charming Beach House Close to Everything
We rented the upstairs apartment for a week with our 2 dogs. The home is clean, roomy and well maintained and the owner is friendly and helpful. The house has a large backyard (big enough for a good game of volleyball) and huge enclosed deck that was great for the dogs to be able to roam free on while we were out there. Outdoor shower is also a nice perk when returning from the beach! Quick walk to the town beach, ice cream shop and restaurants/bars. I would recommend the upstairs for groups of 6 or less and would definitely rent this place again. All you need to bring are bed linens and towels as the house is stocked with pretty much anything else you might need.
Nice apartment and location
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The owners are nice people and were there when we had any questions. Everything was just as described -- clean, comfortable, quiet with really everything you need to stay for a week. The gas grill was a great feature and the wi-fi and flat screen TV (lots of channels) kept us entertained and informed. The futons have mattresses and serve more as beds than sofas, if you need more than the two bedrooms. Convenient location: we could walk to the beach in less than 10 minutes; three bars/restaurants are a short walk away; ice cream shop, convenience store, breakfast place and farm stand are about a half mile away. Theater by the Sea is a mile away for a fun night out. The apartment is on the second floor, consider that if you have trouble climbing stairs. We highly recommend this property!

Review of the Apartment
My husband I went here in July. We loved it. The apartment is bright and airy. The kitchen is well stocked and the deck is a dream. The beach is within walking distance. There are a variety of restaurants within walking distance and within a short car trip. We recommend the Oyster Bar in East Matunuck.
The Matunuck beaches when we went were covered in seaweed but we drove not far to Narragansett which was beautiful.
The owner is sooo nice and we had a great time. Thanks Pat!!!
July 10 through July 17th
We had a very enjoyable stay at the beachhouse. It is very conveniently located along the shoreline in Matunuck. Two beaches (one town and one state) were within walking distance. The fully applianced kitchen allowed us to enjoy lobsters in or go out to one of the surrounding restaurants (two good choices are the Matunuch Oyster Bar and Spain). You can choose to just lay on the surrounding beaches or catch the ferry to Block Island.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced house in a great location we would recommend this location. You have nightlife and beaches down the street yet you are in a peaceful beachfront community. Thank you for an excellent experience!
