On Top Of Newport

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully appointed condo in a perfect location. Right next to Trinity Church, quiet but an easy walk to everything . High class fixtures and finishes and an excellent king sized bed. Perfect for any couple, not suited for kids or over night guests. Light and airy with wonderful views from the surprise roof top deck. Partial views of the harbor and bridge. Totally safe and secure building WITH AN OFF STREET PARKING SPACE ! Warning, this is a third floor walk-up. 44 stairs so not for the faint of heart but well worth the effort when you get there !!

Amy & Bert are wonderful hosts and leave special touches like chocolate and wine . You will definitely not be disappointed.

Awesome place and Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic. Very clean, open space with an awesome rooftop for great views of the sunset. The location was fantastic and the parking space was a really nice bonus. I'd highly recommend anyone traveling to the Newport area to stay here. Amy was very communicative and accommodating and made sure her guests had a great experience. I would definitely stay here again!

Amazing loft apartment in center of town

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about how amazing the 1 bedroom apartment was for our stay. It was located in the center of town, walking distance from tons of restaurants and shopping. Amy was an exceptional host and took great care of us. The apartment came stocked with everything you need to start your stay. The fresh flowers and furnishings made the apartment feel like a home. We enjoyed the views from the roof deck right outside the apartment. Looking forward to staying here again in the future.
