About owner/property manager

Joanne and I have 6 kids between us and currently 3 grand babies. We really enjoy Newport and in 2005 decided to buy a house as both and investment and second home. The house was built around 1900 and we are only the second family to own it. It had been passed thru the generations of a Newport Irish clan. We renovated the home when we bought it and continue to improve on the property each year.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2005

Why owner/property manager chose Newport

We love the proximity of the property to downtown and the beaches. We can walk to all of downtown and Gooseberry Beach (though we usually bike ride there). The bedroom bed counts are as follows:

B1 - Queen

B2 - Queen

B3 - Full and Twin

B4 - Twin Bunks

B5 - Full

What makes this house unique

The home has a wonderful layout and accommodates more people than similarly sized homes as a result. It also has great outdoor space for both eating and hanging out.

Everything you need, close to town

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience. The owners were very good at communication. Accessing the house was easy with lock box. House has 5 bedrooms which offers plenty of space for the whole family. Huge living room and dining room which we didnt use because we spent most of our time on the deck out back. The deck gets plenty of sun which is great when you're having lunch out there. It's nice to have a grill. Parking was sufficient. Location was great with a short walk to Kings Park or Thames street.

Had a blast in Newport

  • 5 of 5

I loved this property. Its proximity to downtown was great, but it was set off the beaten path a little so that you could enjoy some quiet evenings. I use to live in Newport and this house is an awesome find. It's one of the better priced options out there. It comes with two off street parking spots, several of beds, two full bathrooms, and a great outdoor space. My friends and I really enjoyed the patio during the day and at night. It was so great to relax outside after a long day. We also enjoyed the nice kitchen where we hung out a lot in the morning. It had a very large island that made it easy to eat and talk.

The house included clean sheets and plenty of towels. It was very clean and ready for us. There were three A/C units, 2 upstairs and 1 downstairs. There were also plenty of fans.

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to either have fun with their friends or visit with their families.
