You will want to stay forever

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I saw this place while I was researching, I could not get it out of my mind. And so ultimately, we decided to book it. I am ever so glad we did!!! The listing was completely accurate and the property was well-maintained and clean just as shown. It felt completely homey too. Joe, the owner, was extremely pleasant to work with and answered all our questions. Plus, it was great to get to meet him the day we arrived! :) I would recommend this to ANYONE wanting to stay right on the water with everything you could need. If you wanted to take day trips you are close to Providence, Newport, New Bedford, Tiverton and so much more. We ventured out for a few hours on a couple days but mainly just wanted to enjoy the house and the water. If you are looking for tons of sea glass, this is the beach to look for it. :) Plus lots of seashells and nice rocks (our daughter loves collecting smooth rocks). The outside fireplace was such a complete bonus too!!! All the neighbors are so nice and at least the time we were there hardly anyone was ever on the beach.

You pretty much have views all over the house. In the master suite, you have a view while in bed and even when taking a shower!

We are just so glad we got the chance to stay here and none of us wanted to leave!!! Thank you Joe for opening up your home to us and letting us live a dream if only for a week. :)

This property appeared to be everything we wanted in a vacation rental. It was not... I found a used thong in the dresser immediately after arrival, the beach is all rocks! You cant even walk on it without shoes, this is mentioned nowhere in the description! We also found drug paraphernalia on the beach. The air conditioning was not working on second floor leading to very uncomfortable nights. The owner was initially very nice and easy to work with until the end of our stay when he had already gotten our money. Yes the house is fully stocked... too stocked! there is no counter space, its like the house is used as a storage facility. The neighborhood is less than desirable, sometimes being the nicest house on the block isn't a good thing!

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weeks vacation at this beautiful home, the view is spectacular, can't wait to go back next year. The house had everything that was needed. I grew up walking this beach with my family, it was so great to come back and stay here for a week.

Relaxing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation home whether you are looking for a weeklong vacation or just a weekend getaway. We recently spent an extended weekend here with another couple - all of us needing some time away from Manhattan, and this home delivered complete relaxation.

The bedrooms are large, right on the water and well appointed - even the second and third bedrooms. The kitchen overlooks the water and is spacious, so we had plenty of room for the four of us to make a superb lobster dinner. The fireplace on the deck with a cocktail in hand is the perfect way to spend an evening.

We highly recommend this home and plan to be back in the future!

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a true vacation rental here it is! This place is amazing both with location and a beautful home filled with everything you could imagine, especially if you like to entertain. The owner, Joe has seen to your every need with a master suite fit for a Queen that is separate from the other bedrooms. The house is wonderfully decorated and well stocked with anything you could need. Whether you have family in the Portsmouth area or just want a nice place to relax this property fits the bill. Easy walking distance from eateries and endless beach for searching for shells and sea glass. The listing and pictures don't prepare you for how nice it really is. Joe is attentive and welcomes all his tenents personally, it goes without saying the place is immaculate. Would recommend to everyone!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay the house is exactly as described. Even though the weather cooperated during was stay, November in Rhode Island is not a month to take 100% advantage of this house and its location. I hope that I will be able to return some day in warmer weather!
