Breakwater Village House Rental Photos and Description

2 Full Bedrms (sleeps 4 adults), Bunks (for 2 kids), Beach Across the Street!!

This wonderful beach home has two stories, with glorious views from each. Upstairs has a master bedroom with King-sized bed, guest bedroom with Queen-sized bed, and full bathroom.

Downstairs is where you'll find an open layout, with the bright, full kitchen flowing into the living room, a half-bath, and an alcove containing a set of custom, built-in bunk beds. The bunks are sized for children, so the house sleeps a maximum of 4 adults.

A magical place, perfect for a relaxing getaway, with fabulous views all year long. This quaint, unique and friendly little village, with its private sandy beach, is nestled between Scarborough and Roger Wheeler state beaches, in beautiful Narragansett, RI.

Located at the southern tip of Narragansett, the Village is an easy walk or bike ride to the Pt. Judith lighthouse, Camp Cronin fishing area (popular with birders), and several (mostly casual) restaurants. You could also walk down the beach to the breakwater for easy fishing.

Enjoy swimming, beach-combing, surfing, sunning, etc. from your Private beach. Never too crowded, never a rip-tide; just calm, clean waters with a gentle tide and a clean, sandy beach.

The house itself has an open layout, so you can chat with your fellow vacationers while making meals in the fully-appointed, eat-in kitchen. Kitchen includes fridge, microwave, convection oven, all the dish- and glass-ware you could want, and much more.

There are custom bunk beds downstairs - sturdy and built-in. Very cool for any kids in your party.

The living room includes a flat-screen TV on the wall, and adjoins with the kitchen in an open design. Perfect set-up for entertaining, keeping everyone included (cook gets to chat, too), or just chilling as you gaze out the picture window to the sea.

The upstairs includes a master bedroom with a king-sized bed, TV, bureau, closet and fabulous view of the sunset; the guest bedroom features a queen-sized bed, small TV, bureau, closet, and yet more enchanting views - including the lighthouse! - all day and night.

Also upstairs is a full bath, with a clean, well-functioning tub; in addition, upstairs is where you'll find the washer and dryer, discreetly tucked behind folding doors in the upstairs hallway.

Outside are a hot/cold shower, a patio, and a little covered deck with a bench (sit here for some shade, ocean breezes and gorgeous views while someone else cooks on the gas grill). Or sit in the sun while downing some cool drinks.

The house is just a few minutes by car to the seaport of Galilee and the freshest seafood around. Pick up some lobster and head 'home' for a delicious meal that you can enjoy al fresco, while watching the fishing boats go by and the beautiful sun setting.

25 minutes to historic Newport, 35 minutes to Mystic Village and 45 minutes to casino gambling and entertainment at Foxwoods/MGM Grand, this property is conveniently located to any number of other interesting destinations.

Prepare to unwind. House includes a gas grill, washer/dryer, full kitchen - oven, microwave, single-serve coffee maker and grinder, pots & pans, dish-ware, glassware ... All the amenities of home.

Boasting top-notch ocean views, the house is at a high altitude and its location is perfection. From inside or outside the house, enjoy breathtaking views of Block Island Sound and the Harbor of Refuge.

No need to even leave the house, really. But if you do care to meander around the friendly streets of the neighborhood, or walk down the road to the Breakwater Beach, you could do so with a glass of your favorite wine (or whatever) in hand, as the streets are owned by the village.

About Carrie Gregory

2013 was an eventful year for us. My husband turned 60, and we purchased the beach house of our dreams just before the end of the year.

We don't agree on much, but we had to agree that Breakwater Village, and this house in particular, were too fantastic to ignore.

We now live in the Village full-time (our own 'Breakwater Dream'), but it's still true that, every time I'm driving toward this magical place... the closer I get, the broader my smile becomes.

Carrie Gregory purchased this house in 2013

Why Carrie Gregory chose Narragansett area

I'd been in Breakwater Village a few times in recent years, but I never went to the water end of the lanes until 2012. When I finally realized just where this neighborhood was located, I was amazed.

I went down to the beach and walked past the Breakwater, and around the dunes, through the Camp Cronin fishing area and up to fabulously scenic Fishermen's Memorial site. The whole area was perfection - just so beautiful.

While I'm not a swimmer (or boater, or fisher-person, or even a seafood eater), I've always loved being very near the ocean, walking a sandy beach, and observing all manner of seaside nature. This is a pristine area, and it just struck such a chord with me. I was hooked.

I would come to the Village, park by the water in a visitor's spot and walk the beach often. I'd also walk the streets, and everyone I encountered was so friendly. I really fell in love with the neighborhood.

It is just a quaint, very charming place - I love everything from the cobblestone speed bumps to the cute street signs, and the fact that there's so much history here.

Long-time residents have filled me in on various bits of the history of this old fishing village, oftentimes with personal anecdotes from the past. Very intriguing for me. I had to become a part of this neighborhood, and started referring to my quest as the Breakwater Dream.

My husband and I would drive to the Lighthouse, park and take our bikes out of the car, and ride to Breakwater Village. We'd ride around and imagine ourselves owning a place here.

We love it. (Can you tell? ;)

Our Breakwater Dreams have come true.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the location, first and foremost, and the unique benefit of having our own private, beautiful, sandy beach just across the street!

The bedrooms are a great size, and the built-in bunk beds are pretty cool, too. We really just like everything about the house - the full, eat-in kitchen, the open floor plan...

Also, while I'm not a big drinker at all, I find it very unique and cool that, because the neighborhood Association owns the streets and the private beach, residents can walk around both while imbibing their favorite alcoholic beverages.

Another unique benefit of this location is that we can Walk to Iggy's and Aunt Carrie's (Very popular places for chowder, clamcakes, doughboys, fish & chips, ice cream, etc.) or a number of other restaurants and bars.

We can also now ride our bikes easily to Galilee and the Block Island Ferry. That's pretty unique, as we used to go to Block Island every year for our anniversary (got married out there), and it was sometimes a hassle - paying to park and taking the bikes out of the car, or paying for bikes once we got out there.

We so enjoy all the Many unique benefits of living in Breakwater Village. We hope you enjoy them, too.

Living the Breakwater Dream, and Loving it.

The Perfect Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We started off our summer back in June by renting this house for a week. My husband and I could not have been happier with our choice as it was the perfect house & location for us to vacation with our two small children. My 3 and 1/2 year old son has talked about "the beach house" on a near daily basis and asks us to take him back constantly, which we definitely plan to do again next summer! The views are absolutely spectacular, the house itself is comfortable, clean and well stocked with every item you could possibly need...the owners really thought of everything. Carrie was so kind and accommodating and made our whole rental experience a very pleasant one. There really aren't enough positive things to say about this rental property. We look forward to renting again next year because after having such an amazing time there we have no desire or reason to rent from anyone else.

Spectacular views with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful location ever in a friendly village where everyone is easy going and dogs abound! The home had very nice decor and had all the amenities that you would have at home....including lovely sheets, duvets, towels and wonderful gift sets of lotions and shampoos provided by the very thoughtful owner. Our guests and we were delighted by all the books and DVDS provided and as many pots and pans as we could possibly need to stay in and cook all week if we so chose. The rental process was smooth and the owners thought of everything .....including a welcome bottle of wine and chocolates....that would make our stay a memorable one. Steps from the beach, a patio out front that we had coffee on every morning and wine on every evening while taking in the spectacular view and chatting with neighbors and passersby....it was a memorable vacation that we hope to extend longer next summer. The owners were the perfect hosts who truly thought of everything!

Amazing water views!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful cottage with direct views of block island. You can see the ocean from every room! We stayed here for a week with our 2 young kids and it was the perfect place for them, and us!! In just a few short steps (and down some stairs) we were on the private beach. It was very convenient, with small waves and plenty of room to set up our beach stuff! Everyone in this private community of houses was so friendly, stopping to say hello, kids could freely ride their bikes up and down the streets with no worries of traffic. The house was stocked with everything! The owners do a fantastic job making sure you have anything you could need, including wonderful linens, paper and plastic products and beach chairs, etc. Carrie personally greeted us upon arrival with a bottle of wine, chocolates and candies for the kids. What a fabulous vacation we had here, we would love to come back again!

Breakwater Village Private Beach
Car: recommended

Breakwater Village is located at the southern tip of Narragansett, walking distance to the Point Judith Lighthouse. It is a charming, rural area, with a gorgeous view of Block Island Sound, and lots of great flora and fauna.

You can be as active, or as sedate, as you choose. There's plenty to do, but it's such a relaxing spot, you may choose to do nothing at all.

If you choose to do Something, popular local activities include:

- Kayaking from Narrow River (great for beginners, too)

- Taking a trip on the Block Island Ferry (high-speed or non-)

- Hitting the beach (and Narragansett has some of the absolute best beaches in the Northeast - but the Breakwater Private Beach is Fabulous and Free! ;)

- Visiting the Towers (a local architectural icon) or the Point Judith Lighthouse.

The Port of Galilee (about a 5-minute drive from the Village) is the second largest commercial fishing port in New England, offering the freshest fish on the East Coast. It is the main port for the Block Island ferries and the state's only whale watching excursion boat - the Gail Frances.

Galilee has lots of places to eat and drink (all with terrific water views), some gift shops, and, of course, fishing piers complete with many fishing and lobster boats.

This historic seaport (basically a one-street village) is great for everyone - from kids to the elderly, especially anyone who loves boats. You can charter a boat here for some deep sea fishing (unless you prefer to fish right off the Breakwater!) or head out for a whale watching adventure.

Speaking of 'adventure', Adventureland is just down the road (Rt. 108), and offers mini-golf, bumper boats, go carts, a carousel, batting cages and more. Great fun for the whole family.

An easy walk from Breakwater Village, you can get locally famous doughboys, chowder or clamcakes from Iggy's (at very reasonable prices). Aunt Carrie's Seafood restaurant offers great freshly baked breads and pies in addition to their full menu, and their own ice cream shop right across the street.

Other great ice cream places nearby include Nana's Gelato & Ice Cream and Brickley's Ice Cream. And, of course, don't forget Del's frozen lemonade - available all over the state.

Visit the Point Judith Lighthouse - a must for lighthouse lovers. There are great photo opportunities everywhere in Narragansett, but particularly at the Lighthouse, with the ocean on all sides... and you can't beat the sunrise here. An easy bike ride (or walk) from Breakwater Village.

The last American boat to be sunk by a German sub in WWII went down less than 4 miles from this lighthouse. While the lighthouse itself is closed to the public (and owned by the Coast Guard), you can stroll the grounds and enjoy the fantastic view.

The waters around the lighthouse are some of the very best (but sometimes dangerous) for surfing.

There's a little 'park' surrounding the lighthouse, where you might picnic. You can sit on benches facing the ocean, or on the large rocks by the water, or on a grassy expanse. It's a very peaceful place to rest, lie back on the grass, soak up the sun and the view. It's a breezy, beautiful place to be, and it's Free.

In this area, as well as further north on Ocean Rd. (nearer the Towers and Coast Guard House restaurant), you'll often find some very cool 'rock art' - rocks stacked in artistic and frequently amazing ways. Join in the fun and stack your own rocks!

Narragansett is a favorite summer destination of Rhode Island residents. Once a wealthy community rivaling nearby Newport, the rich history of Narragansett is still visible. The Towers is the only remaining section of a luxurious casino built in 1883. Having survived numerous fires and vicious nor'easters, The Towers is the town's most enduring landmark.

For a slightly more urban day-trip, you could, of course, also visit historic Newport itself. The City by the Sea is less than half an hour away, and offers high-end shopping as well as some great food and entertainment.

If you prefer the simple life, there's a Farmer's Market every Sunday at the Fishermen's Memorial Park, less than a 5-minute drive from Breakwater Village. Pick up some fine, fresh, local fare and enjoy at 'home' in the Village, by the Harbor of Refuge.

Block Island is always fun, and you could even ride your bike from Breakwater to Galilee and hop on the ferry with your bike.

Personally, Breakwater Village, itself, is my favorite destination.
