About Regina & Joe

We're a couple in our late 50"s early 60"s. Very easy going, we try really hard to make your experience a positive one. We are available whenever you need us but we will quickly disappear to give you your privacy. We have lived in this town for over 40 years, we went to school here, we raised our children here. We love to laugh and don't take ourselves too seriously.

Regina & Joe purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Regina & Joe chose Rhode Island Coastal

This property is perfect because not only is it cute and cozy but it is in a perfect location. Walk to the water.

We are both from Europe and grew up on an Island so we love the water so Bristol was a perfect location for us. It is a unique property, built in 1925, this home has character and it is well maintained. This home has created many beautiful memories for so many people. Hope you will be the next one!

What makes this apartment unique

The back patio and yard are beautiful - you can sit and relax by the fire pit, sit under the grapevine and when the grapes are ripe, you can pick your own grapes. If it's rainy outside, you can still feel like you're outside by sitting in sunroom with views to the back yard.

Wonderful private apartment,

  • 5 of 5

Just perfect. Hosts were wonderful and available if needed while allowing for our privacy, including use of the back yard area with fire pit and screened in sun room downstairs. Convenient, very well stocked and very comfortable. Definite 5 stars.

Un merveilleux séjour 🤗

  • 5 of 5

Quel endroit merveilleux! Et que dire de nos hôtes Regina et Joe : les meilleurs! Nous avons loué plusieurs maisons et appartements un peu partout dans le monde et nous n'avons jamais été aussi bien accueillis! Un accueil chaleureux, convivial et personnalisé. Un panier de douceurs nous attendait à notre arrivée de même que plusieurs denrées essentiels (café, jus, lait, grignotises, et j'en passe!). Tout pour rendre notre séjour encore plus agréable et nous avons grandement apprécié. L'appartement était tel que décrit, propre, frais, confortable, tranquille et douillet. Nous étions 2 couples et les chambres joliment décorées nous convenaient parfaitement. La présence d'unités d'air climatisé dans toutes les pièces a également été appréciée. La température chaude nous a permis de profiter pleinement de la beauté des installations extérieures et de l'aménagement paysager : repas à l'extérieur tous les soirs sur la magnifique terrasse fleurie par les bons soins de Regina et fin de soirée autour du foyer sur table à siroter un petit digestif en relaxant. Le paradis! Regina et Joe étaient toujours disponibles pour répondre à nos besoins sur un simple texto, tout en étant très discrets et respectueux de notre intimité. Nous nous sentions chez nous.

Ils nous ont également renseignés sur toutes les attractions et choses à voir et à faire aux alentours (Newport, Châteaux, plages, restaurants, etc.).

Une place à recommander sans aucune hésitation!! Regina and Joe méritent pleinement ces bons commentaires et nous avons vraiement apprécié faire leur connaissance.

Agréable à savoir également, Joe parle très bien français. Donc Joe, tu vas devoir traduire cette revue de notre séjour à ton épouse!! :)

Bref, un séjour parfait sur toute la ligne! MERCI!!!

Et à bientôt surement!!

Johanne, Jacques, Marie, Gaétan de Québec, Canada.

Owner's Response: Translation of above comments: What a wonderful place! And what about our hosts Regina and Joe: the best! We have rented several homes and apartments around the world and we have never been more welcomed! A warm, friendly and personalized welcome. A basket of sweets awaited us on arrival as well as several essential items (coffee, juice, milk, snacks, and so on!). Everything to make our stay even more enjoyable and we greatly enjoyed it. The apartment was as described, clean, fresh, comfortable, quiet and cozy. We were 2 couples and the nicely decorated rooms suited us perfectly. The presence of air conditioning units in all rooms was also appreciated. The warm weather allowed us to fully enjoy the beauty of the outdoor facilities and the landscaping: meals outside every night on the beautiful terrace flourished by Regina good care and late evening around the fireplace To sip a small digestive while relaxing. Heaven! Regina and Joe were always available to meet our needs on a simple text, while being very discreet and respectful of our privacy. We felt at home. They also gave us information about all the attractions and things to see and do in the area (Newport, Chateaux, beaches, restaurants, etc.). A place to recommend without any hesitation !! Regina and Joe fully deserve these good reviews and we really enjoyed getting to know them. Pleasant to know also, Joe speaks very good French. So Joe, you'll have to translate this review of our stay to your wife !! :) In short, a perfect stay on the whole line! THANK YOU!!! And surely soon !! Johanne, Jacques, Marie, Gaétan of Quebec, Canada. Homeowner response. Merci bien vos bons mots et la votre consideration. Nous essaions plaire a toutes nos invites, mais vous avez fait plus facile d'etre bons hotes. Esperons vous voir dans le futur, et merci bien. Thank you very much for your kind words and your consideration. We try to please all our guests, but you have made it easy to be good hosts. We hope to see you again in the future.

Fantastic stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL stay at Regina's! The property is perfect - great location, gorgeous yard with fire pit and grapevines, and just the right size, plus it's lovely inside with super comfy beds! Regina and her husband also went above and beyond with super helpful amenities, including coffee and fixins, and a few little surprise treats : ) They also gave us some great suggestions for things to do in and around town! Can't recommend this place enough!

The Place to be for Children

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many HomeAway homes and have never before writen a review. However, this home and Regina and Joe deserve nothing less than a stellar review.

I would like to add a little more information for those folks traveling with young children. Any parent out there knows how challenging it is to travel with children. I have three children under the age of 10 that traveled with us on this vacation. Let me tell you, Regina and Joe could not have made things easier. They have thought of everything. There were toys for the kids, juice already in the refrigerator, and even plastic plates, cups, and utensils. They even gave us the treat of a s'more making kit. They also provided a pack and play and though we didn't need it, I saw a bouncer in the closet for babies. We had a wonderful time there and after a busy day of sightseeing, it was so relaxing to come home to this cozy apartment.

The location is also very close to the harbor and we walked there a couple of nights. It's also pretty close to Newport and Providence.

I think I saw a couple people in past reviews say the apartment was small. I'm not really sure what they are talking about. It's a lovely two bedroom apartment that was plenty big for our family of five for a vacation.

Regina and Joe were the perfect hosts and I enjoyed meeting them and appreciate them sharing their home with us. Thank you both! I hope our paths cross again in the future.

Owner's Response: Rachel, We can't thank you enough for your review especially knowing that you usually don't write reviews but felt this was worth your time. We so appreciate that! We also appreciate you mentioning how the apartment is not as small as people think because that is a misconception that some guests have so thanks for clearing that up. It was a pleasure having you and your family. You have a beautiful family and you are both such great, exemplary parents. Much happiness to you and your family.

Dream home-away-from home

  • 5 of 5

I don't have the words to describe how much I and my family love this place.

It's better than a "home away from home," because my home isn't as clean and inviting as this the moment I walk in the door. There's a basket of goodies awaiting my boys (which makes them feel so special). The beautifully made beds are something from a catalog. My mother-in-law was excited to see the small changes in decor since our last visit.

We haven't had the chance to fully take advantage of the beautiful backyard. Our boys have posed for photos with the lovely landscaping and played under the grape arbor. We are always too tired to take advantage of the gas fire pit.

It's the little details that make our special trips all the better:

-- Rearranging furniture to best meet our family's needs

-- An overflowing supply of linens for the house and beach

-- A water heater that was going strong after three morning showers

-- Amazingly-consistent wifi for all our needs

-- A speedy refill of our coffee pod supply

-- AC units that keep us cool and cozy the whole trip

-- A convenient and private use of a laundry

Most importantly we feel so very comfortable here. We enjoy privacy and comfort, while knowing Regina is a text away if we need something.

We've spent two great family vacations with Regina and Joe and are already planning a grown-up getaway for 2018 -- we will enjoy some wine and s'mores on the patio this time!

Owner's Response: Stephanie, It was so great to have you and your family back with us. Thank you for your kind review and it will be nice to have you back for a "grownup" vacation to finally enjoy the fire pit (s'mores included). It is so relaxing to sit back there by the fire enjoying not only the s'mores but a nice glass of wine to go along with that. Looking forward to seeing you again.
