About Denise D
I am a 3rd generation native to the area, and a Marketing professional working in Boston. I've always loved this area and hope that you will too!
Denise D purchased this House in 2010
Why Denise D chose Misquamicut
I spent every summer here growing up. It is truly my home away from home, that I plan to keep for a long time. It is a joy to share this special property in one of the most beautiful summer destinations the East coast has to offer.
What makes this House unique
This gorgeous beach, both Misquamicut and Watch Hill has it all. Sun, sand, surf, and plenty to do just a short walk, bike ride or drive away.

What a great place! We had 10 of us in our 50's, a combination of singles and couples. I have rented several places and this is the very first that all 10 of us loved it. It is amazingly spacious on all 3 floors as well as the large comfortably furnished deck and back yard. Plenty of bathrooms!! We did a lot of our own cooking and bar-tending :-) and spent very little money beyond the food we bought. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed including lots of staples available. There are 3 private beaches at the end of the road with facilities and parking. However, we all chose to hang a right and at that end of the road is a less traveled beach with a great surf! A wonderful time was had by all and we are all looking at a calendars for when we can do it all again!! PS the Denise was overly accommodating!
Guests from heaven
Great location, private but close to beaches
My siblings and I stayed for a week this summer - our first time ever in RI. If you're considering Westerly for a vacation, I would highly recommend giving it a try, and this house is in the perfect location. We walked or rode our bikes to the beach every day, sometimes several times/day. The road is flat and wide and there isn't as much car traffic as you'd find on the Cape or in Maine. The beach was absolutely beautiful, the water was temperate enough to spend lots of time in, and we had good waves for the kids to body surf.
By the end of the week we had grown fond of this house, but our first two days were nightmare. The home was not clean when we arrived despite the two cleaning people we saw there, and we spent all afternoon Saturday first going to the store to buy cleaning supplies then taking them to the house to make it livable. But the "TV" room in the converted garage couldn't be helped - it was dirty, moldy, spidery. Even the kids didn't want to sit in there. There's an old rusty refrigerator and another fridge sitting in the breezeway where you enter. Just weird. There's a ping pong table in the basement which was great, but the basement looked like something out of a horror movie. The overall feeling was that the owner bought the house to rent and doesn't particularly know or care how the property is maintained. Also, it's a very old house and so some mustiness is to be expected. But the lack of care really hit hard at the beginning because we paid so much for the week. When planning our vacation I communicated several times with Denise, who let us go into the house to look around before we committed. She was very easy to work with during the planning stages. I emailed her to specifically let her know the house didn't seem clean when we went, and also specifically asked if it was well stocked with cleaning supplies in case we had to do touch ups. She assured me it was professionally cleaned and would be spotless and that there would be plenty of supplies anyway. Neither of these statements were true. I even had to pull out all of the shelves and drawers in the main refrigerator and scrub them before we felt comfortable putting food in there. I tried to contact Denise to let her know what bad shape the house was left in, and she still has never gotten back to me. Even so this was a great house, yard, deck to spend a week in if you don't mind getting it into shape first!
Our goal is for your stay to be as comfortable as possible, and we want to assure our future guests that the standards of cleanliness are always improving. Being near the beach, sand and ocean air makes their way inside, and requires management. regrettably, the guest did not alert me to her displeasures, else I would have sent my cleaning crew to return immediately.
The unfinished basement and tv rec room have dehumidifiers that work in perpetuity, eliminating water out a hose into the floor drains. If they are turned on, the air quality is very comfortable in both rooms. if not, then you would notice the air quality changes. It sounds as though these were not running, nor the air conditioner in the tv room. The aged drink refrigerator has been replaced by a new one.
And although the team is professional, they do prioritize their time and occasionally run out of time if guests arrive earlier than the scheduled arrival. That said, we will do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible-just let me know what that is!
Long Weekend in Westerly for Niece's Wedding
Great place. Very spacious and clean. Had the family and extended family. Everyone enjoyed themselves and had a great time. Denise was very gracious and easy to work with. Made our stay carefree so we could concentrate on the big wedding and having a great time. Would not hesitate to do it again.
EXCELLENT beach rental for large extended family vacation
Very spacious and gracious. Open floor plan encourages group activities, including cooking together. The many rooms offer the opportunity to get away from the crowd, also. The homeowner provides excellent infrastructure, including a well-equipped kitchen, cleaning service that makes the last day enjoyable, and trash pick-up that does not require following the pesky town rules. The Misquamicut beaches are the best in New England.
Gracious, spacious home-away-from-home
This beautiful, well-appointed home has lots of space for everyone to relax. The owner is lovely, and arrangements for cleaning and maintenance are excellent. Guests are NOT required to do any "deep cleaning", making it a real vacation. Nearby beaches are the best in the northeast.
We had our family reunion here (12 adults) and the place was fantastic! The house is very large, clean and accomodating with various places for the family to gather -very large living room and dining room, working kitchen, deck with grill, yard with fire pit, TV room, ping pong in basement. Bedrooms were a good size and plentiful. The house is just a few blocks to wonderful beaches. We had a very relaxing time! We didn't have kids but it's kid friendly and not on one of the main streets so quieter regarding traffic.
