Why Christopher Wood chose Rhode Island Coastal

It is cute, great location, huge yard, and very affordable for this area. Also, I am the most attentive and responsive owner you will ever meet!

What makes this house unique

There are very few rentals of this size, location, price and with these amenities in Watch Hill. I can also offer use of a home in Vermont for a few days to mix up your vacation if interested!

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location, about a 12 minute walk to bay street in Watch Hill and the beaches. The interior is completely renovated with plenty of room to relax. The yard was in excellent shape as well. Chris was very accommodating and flexible on short notice for our stay. We would recommend to anyone and will definitely be coming back!

Awesome Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

House is in a perfect location, not too far from the beach. House offered plenty of bedrooms for our guests, nice outdoor space which we used everyday. The owner, Chris, was very reachable throughout our whole stay if we had any questions and checked in to make sure everything was going well. If we needed something he responded quickly. House offered everything we needed for an easy home away vacation. Would definitely rent here in the future, highly recommend.

Great place to Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My four brothers and sisters and I gathered here for a week long reunion. Watch Hill and the South County area is beautiful with great restaurants, lovely preserves, ineresting artist communities and beautiful beaches. Providence is an easy drive away (think Water Fire, Brown and RISD and more great restaurants). The cottage was immaculent, and comfortable. We enjoyed several fires in the wood stove. Combined with the finished area in the garage, the rental could easily accommodate 8 people. Chris, the co-owner was accomodating and helpful and the rental rate very fair, We would come again.

Week Stay End of August

  • 5 of 5

The home was a really nice place to stay for vacation. It was cozy and we had enough space with 8 people. The renter Chris was very hospitable and responsive. The process of renting the property was smooth after Chris respindle to the initial inquiry quickly. The watch hill beaches are beautiful. It was a 10 or 15 minute walk to the beach. Chris provided a parking pass close to the beach as well. I recommend staying.

Good summer rental - a bit far from the beach

  • 4 of 5

Chris is an amazingly attentive landlord. Greeted us kindly upon our arrival and served as a great resource in introducing us to the village's amenities for our upcoming week. Some updating of appliances, toaster, kitchen utensils, and pots & pans would have been helpful. We also would have appreciated a more truthful representation of the number of bedrooms and the actual distance to the beach (which is between 9/10ths of a mile and one mile respectively depending on which beach you visit).

Owner's Response: The actual distance to the nearest beach is about 1/2 mile, not a mile. The guest was correct about the bedroom situation, as I had not finished the fourth bedroom when they arrived. It was my fault for not telling them my contractor had not completed it in time. It was completed after their stay for the rest of the guests in September.

Very relaxing spot and helpful co-owner

  • 4 of 5

Our family rented this house for four nights and found it to be comfortable, clean and relaxing. The layout allows people to gather in the living room, TV room, front porch, kitchen or deck. The co-owner, Chris, greeted us there and had lots of helpful suggestions for restaurants and other local spots in Watch Hill and downtown Westerly. He also texted us throughout our stay to ask whether we needed anything. He is probably the most attentive owner we have ever encountered.
