Why Jan and John Hanks chose Newport and Aquidneck Island

We bought the property for the water and water view. The property is off the beaten track... sitting on the deck or from the inside looking out, watching the different species of birds fly or float by, (one morning I counted eleven swans passing by). Watching the ever changing skies from sunrise to sunset, brings peace to my busy life.

What makes this house unique

The home is designed for year round vacations. The home has water views from most windows.

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The house is modern, and the design and aplliances can only be described as luxurious. The style is charmingly nautical, and everything feels very new and in pristine condition. It is a perfect way to stay on the water for a quiet vacation, within a short ride to all the attractions of Newport and the area.

The owners are very welcoming, helpful, and take great care of the property - and go to great lengths to make sure the stay is easy and comfortable.

An ideal setting for a Rhode Island vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was a wonderful setting for our week long autumn stay in Rhode Island. In addition to being well designed and decorated it was spotlessly clean, comfortable and the views of the bay and the Mt Hope Bridge are simply stunning. Our hostess, Jan, was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the treats she thoughtfully provided to welcome us. The Shore House is in a peaceful, relaxing location but still close to Newport, Bristol and New Bedford for day trips and good dining. It was hard to leave, it will be easy to go back.

Luxury + Comfort + Helpful Homeowners = Amazing Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

The Shore House is AMAZING!!! Everything about this house is excellent -- the location, comfort, design, pristine condition, and helpful homeowners. The photos of the property are absolutely accurate, but the feeling of being there is indescribable. Truly, this is the best rental experience we have ever had. We enjoyed planning our trip (getting tips on where to go, what to see, where to eat from Jan) ahead of time, and then found a informative booklet in the home which also helped us refine our touring decisions during our time here. The owners, John & Jan, want you to experience a first-class, comfortable vacation in their home. They provide coffee, tea, and a nicely-supplied kitchen which is appreciated. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find some snacks, orange juice, jelly, and even delicious pumpkin bread waiting for us upon our arrival. If you want to enjoy a beautiful area and relax in luxury, come to the Shore House!!

AWESOME!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home and location were absolutely perfect. Beautiful and well maintained. Jan and John added all those little touches that make you really feel like you are on that luxurious get away that you have always dreamed of. Everything you could possibly need is included, plus high end shampoos, lotions, etc. that make you feel so special. The views are amazing. We could not enough pictures of the marvelous sunsets. We would definitely book again if we get a chance. Thanks Jan and John for your friendliness and help in giving us one of the best vacations we have ever had. Carol and daughters.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We rented several houses over the last years, this was the best we ever had. I would gave a extra star if possible. Great location for relaxing and swimming. The house itself is awsame, better than the pictures. It is very clean and excellent equipped. You see and feel the personal touch of John an Jan, who are great hosts too.

Fabulous hosts great experience.

  • 5 of 5

The property was even nicer than described. The home is beyond comfortable. We loved the huge sleep number bed and well stocked kitchen. This is a beautiful home inside and outside and couldnt be closer to the water. The water view is spectacular. Jan and John went out of their way to make sure that we were happy and were spot on with all of their recommendations. We will be returning next year.
