Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week in this home. There was so much to do- biking, kayak, beach, shop, and visit Newport. What we liked best of all was the serene, beautiful neighborhood and back yard. We spent most of our time in the sunroom which feels like you are outdoors. The home is thoughtfully and tastefully decorated, kitchen well- equipped and efficient. It was a perfect place for a relaxing, rejuvenating, and re-connecting week for our family. We would most definately return again!

Unfortunately this wasn't the honeymoon we were expecting. Upon our timely arrival there was a set of French doors that were wide open to the house. We went in to make sure the house was empty and found trash, dirty dishes, running toilets and bed linens everywhere. The travel agency sent out a cleaning crew to clean the house which was nice but it was a poor start to the week. The bathtub leaked onto the kitchen counter downstairs on several occasions and there was a constant moldy, musty odor that permeated the whole house the entire week. Overall we were disappointed with our stay, for the money we spent on the house we expected more.

Owner's Response: Adam- I am very sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. Clearly you beat our cleaning crew to the house. I will speak to the management company to make sure this does not happen again as we pride ourselves on maintaining standards we ourselves would expect. As to the plumbing problem, this is the first we've heard of it. I do wish you had reported the problem when you were there and we would have sent a plumber to address the problem. I was at the house last week and cleaned the jetted tub and did not see a problem, but will have someone go up and investigate. Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your stay. Ruthann

Ruthann's getaway at Naragansett Bay was great. She & her realtor handled any issues that arose during our stay. Can't wait to come back next year!

Nice, well maintained and equipped house with lovely water view.

  • 4 of 5

The house is situated in a lovely neighborhood -- very quiet and private and easily accessible to the many beaches in the area. The house is in great condition with many recent renovations completed at a high standard. It is tastefully decorated. I especially liked the kitchen as it is fully equipped. The two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house which was fine for us as our children are in their late teens. (They especially appreciated this.) We enjoyed relaxing in the chairs that look out over the water. There were a few hiccups at check-in time which were quickly resolved. We had a pleasant stay and would recommend the house.
