Newport Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 or 2 condos (entire building) - sleeps 4 or 10

Our cool and comfortable 1,932 sq ft one bedroom ground floor condo has exposed brick, high ceilings and a true city feel - steps from everything Newport has to offer. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, pool table, foosball, shuffle board, wet bar, washer/dryer and flat screen tv.

****NEW FOR 2016 - New KING size Charles P. Rogers mattress in bedroom - New 4K Ultra HD TV in bedroom - Faster Router and Internet - Amazon Echo - 2 new twin mattresses for daybed ***************

Not your typical Newport condo - built in 1910 for the phone company - transformed into a luxury condo around 2006

.

Located in the trendy South Broadway district - Great restaurants and bars just steps from the door - five minute walk to downtown Harbor and shops - five minute walk up to Bellevue Ave.

******We know this LOOKS like a great place to party, but due to our nice neighbors upstairs, who we like and want to like us, we can not host partiers here. If you're looking for a great place to unwind after enjoying all the great things Newport has to offer, this is it!

*****NO SMOKING****NO PETS*******NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN*******

Zip car and Hertz 2 blocks away - bus stop across the street.

Easy walk to just about everywhere - I can walk to the Ocean in 15 minutes and the downtown/harbor is only a 5 minute walk. Once you get here you really don't need a car. Newport has so much to offer all year round you'll never be bored!

THE GOOD

*Large beautiful space.

*No other place like it!

*Great location

*Right out the door and across the street are the best bars, restaurants and most importantly the best Bakery in Newport!

THE 'WARTS' - Every place has them :)

The 'Den' area has a daybed with 2 twin mattresses (new in 2016) and a room divider - but no door

The apartment is ground level and has a condo above so you will hear all the noise associated with lively urban apartment living.

Also, the half bath is very small and located through the bedroom.

THIS IS NOT A PLACE TO ENTERTAIN - GUESTS ARE LIMITED TO THE PEOPLE STAYING IN THE UNIT (MAX 4).

PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF MY NEIGHBORS - The noise does carry so we ask that you not play the game tables and loud music after 10pm.

Parking: There is on street parking and I've never had to walk more than a block. Please pay attention to the signs regarding parking.

I have one guest pass for resident parking (only required May 1 to Oct 1 ) that must be returned - replacements are next to impossible to get.

This condo boasts:

* Central Air Conditioning

* Billiard table

* Foosball

* Shuffleboard

* Flat screen TV

* Cable

* AppleTV

* Wi-Fi

* Amazon Echo

* Washer/ Dryer

* Wet Bar

**Please note that the fireplace and the pellet stove are not operational at this time.**

I can be reached 24/7 on my cell phone. My property manager, Patti, is across the street should the need arise.

Located in the trendy South Broadway district - Great restaurants and bars just steps from the door - 5 minute walk to downtown Harbor and shops - five minute walk up to Bellevue Ave. 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive to the beach.

Zip car 2 blocks away - Bus stop across the street.

This is urban living with the Ocean just a 15 minute walk and the harbor is only a 5 minute walk. Once you get here you really don't need a car. Newport has so much to offer all year round you'll never be bored!

*Cleaning is done before guests arrive and after they check out. Cleaning fees cover basic cleaning - The STOVE, microwave and refrigerator should be left as clean as you found it. Additional cleaning fees will apply and will be deducted from deposit if property requires additional cleaning.

I appreciate your interest in my home. Please understand that in order to keep my neighbors happy and to make sure my home stays beautiful, I ask that you limit the amount of people in the unit to 4 (this includes day guests).

I have been honest in my description, I appreciate honesty from my quests; if you plan on entertaining, this would not be a good fit for you.

A must-do space in Newport

  • 5 of 5

Barbara provided our family with a very well appointed and unique space for a week. We enjoyed the pool table just as much as relaxing on the huge couch watching old movies. The condo is in a perfect location. We were able to walk in all different directions to different restaurants, shops, historical mansions and of course the waterfront! Barbara was quick to respond to any of my questions. A must stay space in Newport!

Extraordinary Rental in an Extraordinary Location!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot review this place highly enough. From the moment we discovered its perfect location to the second we opened the front door, we knew we had found something special. Location first: we were able to park our car and not need it till departure. Restaurants, bars, the harbor, shopping -- we were in the midst of it all. We got to "live like a local" and still had tremendous privacy. Didn't even hear street sounds at night. Newport is an incredible place and this place is perfectly situated. As for the place itself, you can see from the pictures that it is one-of-a-kind. But even pictures can't show everything that makes this place so special. It is spacious, but cozy. Vintage, but modern. Playful, but relaxing. My husband and I chose it for our anniversary and it was perfect. Even though we were there without out kids, we played pool, shuffleboard, and foosball like we did when we dated. We watched movies and listened to music on that expansive couch, and toasted to our marriage over wine at the kitchen bar. We felt spoiled by the hotel quality linens and plush white towels. Though we ate out each meal and didn't use the kitchen, it was clear that foodies would thrive in that space. It was well appointed with all those things you don't want to pack, but need for preparing a meal away from home (spices, oils, pans). We will remember that next time we come. And there will be a next time! Thank you, Barbara, for your attention to detail and quick responses and tremendous care you took to make sure we had what we needed for a beautiful stay.

Perfect family fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our 3 kids (ages 8, 11, and 5 months) stayed in Barbara's condo and it was absolutely perfect. There is a different feeling when you rent a home versus simply a rental property, and this condo is truly a home. The entertainment system and the temperature were controlled by the most recent technology, towels and linens were very soft and high quality, there were nice bottles of handwashing and dishwashing soap, the kitchen and bathrooms had anything that you could possibly need (a hair dryer, a makeup mirror, small kitchen appliances, condiments) and the furnishings and decor were full of character. Check in and check out was extremely easy, done through Patti in the shop right across the street. Barbara is very reachable and provides you with detailed information about the condo and the area before you check in. The game tables allow a family to spend time indoors together playing pool and shuffleboard instead of being on their phones or iPads. The condo was easily walkable to many restaurants and coffee shops, a 7-eleven, Long Wharf Mall (Gap, Banana Republic, Panera), and the Newport visitors center. The kids loved the ramen noodle place for lunch (1 block away) and the Corner Cafe for breakfast (2 blocks away). There is a day bed with a trundle in a semi-private alcove with a screen and a large master bedroom. There is a half bath off the master bedroom and a full bath off the main living area. The condo felt spacious, was incredibly clean, and was really the perfect space for our family to relax as well as a home base from which to explore downtown Newport. Thank you again!!

Terrific Condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had been traveling in Maine and Mass and finished our trip in Newport RI. This was our first time in the area and really felt like we hit the jackpot with this condo. The pics online do a great job of capturing the feel of the condo. We both enjoyed the games. It's the first time I've played foosball and shuffleboard since I was a kid. The unit had every amenity we'd ever need. It was our first experience using Amazon Echo. In the evenings, we had access to Apple TV, Hulu, and Netflix. This is a condo best suited for adults. We arrived here on Oct 15 which just happens to be a seafood festival weekend. It takes less than 10 minutes to walk to waterfront. Loved having all the restaurant choices a block away from us on Broadway. Our host recommended a great Mexican Restaurant called Perro Salado. Try the Cilantro Jalapeno Margarita. That was a first for me.

Hopefully not the last time we stay at this condo. If this is the first time you're visiting Newport, you can't beat the location.

Fantastic Experience at a Unique Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent two nights at this unique property. As great as it shows online it is even better in person. Barbara has great taste down to the smallest detail. Very fun - loved the tissue holder! The home entertainment options were all you could ask for - we had rain/storms the first day and our teenage girls were jazzed to hang with their parents watching movies and playing shuffleboard, pool, & foosball. You are covered for whatever mother nature provides.

This part of town also will immerse you in the more local color - restaurants, shops etc. Barbara provided great, current recommendations for all meals, all near by, and they should not be missed - you can take in the tourist spots if you like, but the quality of the local/year round establishments is consistently excellent. It is walking distance to everywhere: Bellevue Ave, the wharves, first beach, cliff walk etc.

Hope to be back in the future!

Within walking distance to just about everything, this property is urban living with the Ocean just a short 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive. We are in the trendy South Broadway district - The best restaurants and bars are just outside the door while the Harbor/Wharf is a 5 minute walk in one direction and Bellevue Ave is 5 minutes in the other!

We are in a great location but be advised, it does come with the noise associated with living in a condo as there is a condo above us and we are at street level.

The 'den area ' has a room divider and a daybed with 2 twin mattresses.

Enjoy the Billiard table. foosball and shuffleboard. Flat screen TV with cable, AppleTV and Wi-Fi.

With so much to see in Newport you'll never be bored but, an absolute must see is the Cliff Walk - it will take your breath away - it's 3.5 miles long (but there are plenty of places to get off) and gets more beautiful the further down you go. Make sure to wear appropriate shoes as part of the walk requires walking over rocks. Check out discovernewport.org for events during your stay.
