About Julie O'Halloran

I have lived on this street most of my life. After I got married, I bought these three lots where I built my homes. It is one of the most beautiful spots on Aquidneck Island and in all of Rhode Island.

Why Julie O'Halloran chose Middletown

My whole family has lived here within a few blocks of each other since 1930, so the memories of my childhood surround me. Swimming and surfing at '1st Beach', exploring the rocks on the point, walking to the surf store, restaurants, and '2nd Beach', walking to St. George's School where all of my daughters were educated, and watching the amazing sunsets over the Cliff Walk and big surf have been a part of my life and i would not want to live anywhere else.

What makes this house unique

The Esplanade and Tuckerman Avenue area on Easton's Point is centrally located so that you are very close to downtown, both beaches, or Route 138 for a quick drive to Providence or Boston, but it is quiet and the scenery is gorgeous so that you feel as though you are at a resort on an island.

Gorgeous property perfect long weekend home...

  • 5 of 5

The house was phenomenal and Julie was MORE than accommodating. The location couldn't have been more perfect. Right off the highway, minutes from food and liquor stores, 25 yards from the sand, famous clam shacks, and white table cloth dining. Julie had a transportation contact for getting our large group to and from downtown and golf for the entire weekend that was priced VERY fairly. Carlos was a savior for us. I am already looking forward to my next potential rental from Julie towards the end of this summer!

A GEM of a beach home!

A GEM of a beach home!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This will be our 3rd consecutive summer staying at this gem of a beach home overlooking Easton's (First) Beach ~ seconds from the surf and mere minutes from the best twin lobster rolls in town. These are just a few reasons why we're counting down the days 'til summer. Julie's enviable beach front property has all the comforts of home and then some. Putting it simply, just pack your suitcase. This well-maintained property offers all the amenities, you'll find the rooms comfy and immaculate, (most with killer ocean views) and the list of things to do ENDLESS.

Here is a list of my top 15 favorite things to do on the island! Paddle boarding on 3rd Beach, Flo's Clam Shack, Historic Cliff Walk, the International Tennis Hall of Fame, Block Island, bocce on the beach, clam chowder at the Black Pearl, the Newport Jazz Festival, deep sea fishing, a Newport Gulls college baseball game, yoga at Zettmar Studio, sitting by the fire at the Chanler, ping pong in the basement, the Carousel at Easton's Beach, and the glorious sunsets from the deck.

Owner Julie O'Halloran is always available and hospitable and goes out of her way to help make your stay on the island one for the memory books.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your fabulous review of our home and hospitality Robin! We are thrilled to have you return to the Esplanade this summer and I am happy that you find my home well appointed and stocked. I try to provide all things I would want in vacation home and have it sparkling clean so you can enjoy every minute of your time on the beach and in town experiencing all that Newport has to offer. I hope you get to do all your favorite things and more this summer. See you soon and we look forward to welcoming you back and new quests for their first visit.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

A spectacular beach and cliff walk view, (watched sea smoke and waves being blown backwards) and a comfortable, cozy and welcoming home (the gas fireplace was wonderful) made for a very special getaway weekend for the eight of us.

We all have visited Newport and Easton Beach often but never during the winter. Julie, a joy to work with, made her home available to us over Valentine's Day weekend and was extremely hospitable to us through out the rental process and during our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed for our meals in. The four private bedrooms and three full baths made getting ready for the day easy.

Even with the very low temperatures and wind chill, we walked along the shore and marveled at the view and just how lucky we were to be at this spectacular place.

You will love this home, in any season. Enjoy!

What Can I Say!?!? Beyond wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What Can I Say!?!? We rented, for a week in November 2015, the twin houses side by side (Tuckerman and Esplanade) for our family wedding. The Groom's family one house. The Bride's family the other house. The houses each held us parents, our children and significant others as well as grandkids comfortably. Julie was beyond wonderful to deal with. The kitchen was well provided with dishes, glasses condiments, etc.,

"" the entire house was very clean and there was plenty of seating both in and out for our extended family. This wonderful rental was a great choice and our experience there just added to making this wedding weekend a great success. Then - I had lost a special shawl while there and thought I had looked thoroughly. Julie looked and could not find it either BUT she said the cleaning service would look as well. They turned the place upside down and found MY SHAWL, which Julie graciously sent to me! We would never hesitate renting from Julie! She was wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your fabulous review Janice! I really enjoyed meeting you all and am happy to hear my homes contributed to your wedding week enjoyment and success. I would be happy to welcome you back for anniversaries! The cleanliness of my homes and well stocked kitchens, bedding, baths and beach items are something I pride myself on providing for guests for the full enjoyment of their vacation. I simply stock and maintain what I would want in a home for my valued time and money. Thanks again!

My Family & I Had A Blast!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family & I spent a week in September at one of Julie's properties; 18 Esplanade. From the beginning Julie was extremely professional and accommodating. The layout and bedrooms fit my families needs perfectly and was what we had been looking for. The weather was perfect and the close proximity to the beach was exactly what we wanted. We plan on booking this place again next year if it is available! Thanks Julie!!!!

Beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us stayed here over the Columbus Day weekend. The property was perfect for us - a bed for each of us and 3 baths. The open living room, dining room, kitchen configuration makes it easy to team cook and mingle. There is a great view from the deck of Easton Beach which is a good beach for walking. This location is within an easy drive of Newport center or the Wildlife Refuge and Bird Sanctuary (other direction). And it isn't too far to walk into town either. House is light, well stocked with towels, and in immaculate condition. Enjoyed meeting Julie (landlady) who provided all the information we needed for a great get away. This is a terrific place to stay!

Newport's Easton's Beach is 100 feet in front
Car: recommended

There are so many things that can be seen and done in Newport that are close to my homes! My homes are on Newport’s Easton’s Beach. You can sit at the beach, swim, surf, boogie board, make sand castles, look for shells, explore the rocks, and fish within 100 feet of the back door. I have boogie boards, sand toys, some lawn games plus some kid’s toys, and a ping pong table in the garage. I have a swing set and plastic kiddy pool. There are many restaurants, sports bars, and a surf store within ¼ mile. Within one-half mile is the Easton’s Beach Pavilion with a skate board park, volley ball tournaments, bikes rentals, playground at the beach, carousel, bumper boats in water, Save the Bay aquarium where kids can touch marine life such as crabs a baby manta ray and other fish all caught right at the beach in front of it, a Bouncy air jumper thing like you rent for parties, Bouncy Air slide and live family entertainment every week (singers, bands, magicians and such). Historic cliff walk is a three-quarter mile walk to it that spans 3 miles with the ocean on one side and the mansions on the other. Within one mile are two other beaches, one which has surfing lessons, kite surfing, and the other has windsurfing lessons. There is Sachuest Point nature preserve with a beautiful ocean front walking trail and tons of birds, The Norman Bird sanctuary has hiking trails to a cliff with amazing views, and horseback riding stables in Middletown and Portsmouth offer riding lessons (can ride on the beach in the very early morning from October through May) all within 1.5 miles of my homes. This area is a great area to bike or run through. Within one mile is Bellevue Avenue and historic Newport where the Tennis Hall of Fame, Touro Synagogue, Newport Art Museum, The Redwood Library and many shops and restaurants are located. The Newport mansions are also on Bellevue Avenue and can be toured daily. There are also many antique shops off Bellevue to Spring Street. Two miles away is the wharf area where you can shop, dine, go to a baseball game to see the Newport Gulls (college players from all over the country) and see theater productions. There are also art galleries, antiques shops, glass blowers, an arcade game shop, sail boat rentals, scooters rentals, deep sea fishing charters, America’s cup yacht charters, schooner trips or ferry rides to Block Island or Jamestown. Then 5 miles away is the famous Ocean Drive where you can bike, drive, go to the beach, have a picnic, fly kites, watch the surf and just mansion gawk (huge homes like in the Hamptons). Three miles away in Portsmouth you can watch a polo match. There are 5 golf courses on the island, some big, some small, some famous, and some private. Then there are always the movies with three theaters with 1-10 screens. There are many festivals for music, food, and film depending on when you visit. I may have left things out, but that is just some of what can be done!
