Impressive, elegant apartment with fabulous hosts!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, spacious apartment in a perfect location! Close to shops, cafes and restaurants and within easy reach of the local beaches, cliff walks and mansions, this property is a real find! The apartment is very well-equipped with everything you could possibly need for both self-catering and relaxation. The attention to detail is impressive- there are even beach chairs and cool boxes etc that you are welcome to use. Nord and Katie are indeed the perfect hosts - they were quick to respond to any queries both before and during our stay and are very friendly and helpful, with a wealth of local knowledge. The car parking space was an added bonus. I would have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful apartment!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Katie and Nord, our hosts, immediately made us feel right at home. They are two of the most endearing and accommodating people we've ever met. They have thought of just about everything a guest could possibly need, both for the apartment and the beach as well. And their apartment is not only well appointed but immaculately clean. They live on the first floor so unlike some absentee landlord they are always on top of everything, yet with a separate entrance you have complete privacy and feel almost as though you have the place to yourselves.

As other reviewers have pointed out, the location is ideal. You are literally steps from Newport Harbor, dozens of shops and eateries in nearly any direction, and surrounded by colonial history with the William Vernon house directly across the street. The Newport mansions are just a few minutes away by car, and the beaches are short drive as well. With this location, the importance of Katie and Nord providing their only driveway to their guests for off-street parking cannot be overstated. Parking in the historic area of Newport is a limited commodity, so having your own private parking in a central location of historic Newport eliminates the time, cost, and stress of parking in the area.

Katie and Nord also know Newport and the surrounding area well, so they are a great resource for restaurant and attraction recommendations.

The apartment is both comfortable and spacious. It is ideal for small families. Our family of four, us parents with a college senior and a high school junior, had all the space we needed and then some. The bathroom is larger than those in most hotels, and the main room is huge. It was great to return after a day of walking through Newport, some mansions, or Fort Adams and have the space for all of us to relax in front of the TV with Netflix or surf the web on our tablets/laptops with their WiFi, without being in each other's way. If you are looking for a party atmosphere, this is NOT it. But it is a great home away from home for those looking to explore the Newport area and have a great, low stress, relaxing vacation.

Where do I start? This place is amazing. My wife and I took our two young daughters (ages 5 and 4) here for the weekend and couldn't have been happier with our choice. From the perfectly appointed kitchen, to the comfy beds and plentitude of clean, soft sheets and blankets, this house has it all. Located a stone's throw from Thames St., you'll be walking distance to all kinds of shopping, restaurants, pubs, and cupcake parlors. Historical sites and buildings surround you, including the next door neighbor's house (used as wartime headquarters for the French Count Rochembeau, and visited by Washington, Lafayette and all kinds of important figures during the Revolution). A short drive to tour the mansions on Ocean Drive loops around and ends right back at the Anna Pell house. It's a clean, light-filled, spacious and warm home with everything you need on cold New England nights. Games, cards, movies and a super-comfy couch/futon for guests (my brother-in-law slept like a baby after coming to visit one night from Providence, which is just 40 minutes away). The owners, Katie and Nord were so friendly, accommodating and attentive– they even mailed my jacket and scarf back to me after I realized I left it. In short, if there were a 6th star, I would have added it to this rating. You'll be delighted by the Anna Pell house.

Center of Newport

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! This lovely and spacious 2 bedroom upstairs unit actually has three sleeping areas and a great kitchen with everything you need. Only one block away from shopping, restaurants and the whole waterfront. And the visitor center, where you can catch all the tours, is only a 5 min walk. And the only Starbucks in Newport is just around the corner!!

Very Comfortable Stay in an Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Anna Pell housefor the Labor Day weekend. The accommodations were perfect -- everyone had a comfortable place to sleep, spacious kitchen and living area, eclectic decor and the location is within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The apartment has it's own entrance and we were able to come and go without disturbing our hosts. There were thoughtful touches that made our stay easier -- bottled and filtered water in the refrigerator, welcome basket of goodies, fully equipped kitchen, smart dvd player, wifi and even specially ground coffee for the french press coffee maker. We appreciate that our host family lives "green", with recycling and composting bins in the apartment. Thanks, Katie!!
