Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The Boathouse was perfect for our girls trip to Newport. It was convenient to everything. Looking out over the harbor with coffee in the morning was a great start to the day. We walked to dinner several times, and loved the park for walks in the afternoons. The beds were comfortable and the home was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. We would definitely stay again!

Beautiful Waterfront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the boathouse. Located on King Park with best view in Town of Newport Harbor....actually had a number of tour buses stop across the street from the house because of the amazing view. House has a summer cottage feel, very cozy with great views while you sit in the living room (windows shown on second floor of house photo). Well appointed with great response and communication from home owner. It is a little bit of walk to some parts of the downtown, but not too bad and two nights of our stay we used Uber for less than $10 for party of four to get to opposite end of town (Broadway area) and to dinner out of town at Castle Hill. House good for two couples or family with one or two children. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for all of your kind words. The view is amazing! I always feel like I am on vacation when home. If not going to other end of town, at least there is a convenience store only 4-5 small blocks and 4-5 good restaurants only 6-7 small blocks away. Best! Gail/Owner

Family Vacation Newport - Weekend After Labor Day

  • 5 of 5

Great house and fantastic location...5 Min drive to downtown or about 15-20 minute casual walk down Thymes to the Warf resturant/shop area. One of the best aspects was the town park right across from the house on the water. Clean great park with small beach area and simple playground..My daughter spent hours on it.

House has a cute little roof-deck with great views for the 5 O'Clock cocktails...Great views overall from the house. We also enjoyed very easy access to Ocean Drive for Biking and walk right out from the driveway to drop the Kayak into the harbor. House was extremely, extremely clean...Some appliances were older but all was in excellent working order. Wifi and TV all also good. Would recommend this property and stay here again with my family...Can't beat Newport in Late Summer/Early Fall. House was in downtown area but felt private and neighbor (seemed to be part-time 2nd home resident) was also friendly. Owner is very responsive and great to deal with.

Best place to stay in Newport!

  • 5 of 5

Gail was in touch with us every step of the way. This made a first time trip to Newport relaxing. This place is a fantastic little get away for a couple or small family. Everything we needed was here. We walked EVERYWHERE which let us enjoy restaurant food and cook whatever we wanted. Favorites: Schooner sailing in the evening, Ocean Drive bike ride, Cliff Walk, St. Mary's Church service, and of course the mansions. Just sitting in the living room with a beautiful breeze and view of the harbor was magnificent!

Fantastic Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Gail was wonderful throughout the booking process, and kept us updated through our stay in Newport. The Boat House is very unique and perfectly sized. We walked into town everyday and the sunsets were spectacular! The park across the street was nice as well. Thanks to Gail our summer birthday vacation in Newport was a success.
