About H W Olinger

Texas native now with Rhode Island roots! Southern hospitality meets New England charm.

I am a local realtor for Keller Williams here on Aquidneck Island. After you stay at the Flip Flop cottage, you may just want to live here or have a second home! I can help you with that!!!

H W Olinger purchased this cottage in 2014

Why H W Olinger chose Newport East

This property is adorable! I knew that it would be a perfect getaway place and 2nd home to really enjoy Newport. It is in a perfect location away from all of the noise of downtown Newport. I love the little backyard that feels so private and grilling on the patio. It is a small cottage but a perfect place to rest and relax from your busy Newport day of museums or fun in the sun at 2nd beach (my favorite!)

Very close to St. Georges and Salve if you need a close place to call home while in Newport. Don't forget to walk to the Cliffwalk and take a ride on the carosel at Easton's Beach. Be sure to grab a Dell's lemonade too. Enjoy and thank you for looking. You won't be disappointed by the charm of Flip Flop Cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, privacy, and adorable backyard!!! Close to beaches, shopping, and restaurants. Parking.

Great stay! Loved the large back-yard

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for the first two weeks of August and it was lovely. Hillary was very responsive to each request (a couple more chairs for the kitchen table, direct internet access) which made our long stay that much more pleasant. Would definitely return / recommend.

Unbelievable Independence Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed at this cottage with my girlfriend and another couple for 4th of July weekend. The place suited us great. Everything was very clean and well setup. The central A/C was a nice plus. The back yard is huge and private, perfect for having some friends over to barbeque. It's in a great location as well. Its a quick walk to the beach and $5 cab to downtown for the restaurants bars and shops. We would definitely be looking to stay here again.

Perfect Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was the cutest, coziest cottage! Incredibly clean!

Great backyard with a working grill.

Perfect location for going to the beach, getting into Newport, and/or traveling to a Vineyard.

Comfortably fit/slept 6 adults for a girls weekend, but would also be ideal for a family vacation.

The owner of the property was very easy to work with and very responsive.

Newport is a seaside city on Aquidneck Island in Newport County, Rhode Island, United States. It is located 23 miles (37 km) south of Providence, and 61 miles (98 km) south of Boston. Known as a New England summer resort and for the famous Newport Mansions, it is the home of Salve Regina University and Naval Station Newport which houses the United States Naval War College, the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, and a major United States Navy training center. A major 18th-century port city, Newport now contains among the highest number of surviving colonial buildings of any city in the United States. Newport was known for being the city of some of the 'Summer White Houses' during the administrations of Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy. Aquidneck Island is home to many beaches, public and private. In Newport, the largest public beach, Easton's beach, or First Beach, has a view of the famed Cliff Walk. Sachuest Beach, or Second Beach, in Middletown is the second largest beach in the area. Gooseberry Beach is a private beach but is open to the public on certain days throughout the year, and is located on Ocean Drive, along with Newport's two other private beaches, Bailey's Beach (Spouting Rock Beach Association), and Hazard's Beach. The Newport Cliff Walk is considered one of the most popular attractions in the city. It is a 3.5-mile (5.6 km) public access walkway bordering the shoreline, and has been designated a National Recreation Trail. Brenton Point State Park is home to the annual Brenton Point Kite Festival. Newport is also home to the Newport Country Club. The historical club has played host to the 2007 Women's US Open and the 1995 Men's US Amateurs. Fort Adams, an historical fort dating back to the War of 1812 houses the Museum of Yachting and hosts both the Newport Folk Festival and the Newport Jazz Festival annually
