Quiet and Clean home! What a view!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home with a group of 9 girls for a bachelorette party! The house was extremely clean, set up with little details to make our stay more enjoyable. The landlord was always in communication and made the process of renting this place very easy and professional. We had a blast. The house is in a great location, close to beaches, restaurants and Newport, where we spent an evening of fun! I hope I have a chance to rent this place again, it would be great to take my family here and spend a relaxing week at a comfortable, clean and spacious home! We cannot thank you enough!!!!

beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I stayed for two days at Cliffside while we attended a wedding in Portsmouth.

The house was adorable and has a wonderful yard overlooking the water.

We spent most of our time on the lawn watching all the boats sail by.

Even though there were eight of us there was plenty of room for all to have their own space.

Jacque was a pleasure and very accommodating.

Great Girls Weekend Getaway at Cliffside

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for a weekend getaway. There were 8 women on the trip and we had plenty of space between 4 bedrooms and two living room areas, plus several tables for dining and a fantastic back deck with an amazing view. When we arrived we were pleased to find that the house was very clean and that there were some snacks for us with a lovely welcoming note. The location is in a great with lots to do in the area and easy to shoot down to Newport. We had a great time. The only thing to note is that the stairway is pretty narrow.

Our Favorite Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I went for a long weekend and could not have been more pleased. This is our second time at this beautiful property. The house is spacious, clean and has unbelievable views of the water right from the master bedroom. I dont think you can get better views anywhere else. We didn't even have to lift our heads off the pillow to see the sun rise. There are views from every window. The house is super cozy and makes you feel right home. Large kitchen, huge family room are really great. The owner always leaves plenty of info for the guests on where to eat and attractions. The restaurant suggestions are always on point. We love this house and always enjoy our time spent here. The house is set on a quiet street with a really great restaurant within walking distance. The house is perfect for any type of getaway from Romantic to family to a girls getaway. We definitely will be back! Thank you for such a wonderful time! Visiting this house makes me want to move to Rhode Island!

Fantastic View in Quiet Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

"Cliffside" is a super convenient getaway fro anyone from a city who wants some peace and quiet while still being able to get to some fun locations. The view from the house is blissful and ever-changing. The house itself is cozy, a little quirky, but that is part of the charm. A nice deck outback, fishing poles and a comfortable living and TV area make it a great escape.

2nd time back even better than the 1st

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 2 children happily returned to Cliffside this year for another terrific week looking out over the Sakonnet River. It was like a homecoming - we had confidence that everything we needed was right there, from ample towels, kitchen supplies and lawn chairs to where to find the best grocery stores and restaurants. We returned to our favorites around Newport and Middletown, and then explored further afield into Tiverton, which is charming, and Jamestown, which is a boaters dream.

The owner is great to work with being very responsive and straightforward with information and explanations and the pictures are very accurate except that they can scarcely do justice to the views. The cottage is very clean and comfortable, being very homey and not fussy at all, and she provides sets of towels in a different color for each person which is great so that folks don't easily get their things mixed up. Having a washer and dryer makes mothers very happy and makes it possible to not have to pack every piece of clothing you own in case of bad weather.

The boating and kayaking are fabulous, the fishing is excellent, biking, walking, swimming, EVERYTHING is great here, because there is something beautiful to see around every corner, and water, water, everywhere! Everyone talks about Newport, which is a great place to visit, but Battleship Cove just 20 mins away in Fall River is historic, educational and its own kind of amazing, and New Bedford has a great harbor and the Whaling Museum, and Tiverton has terrific farm stands and lovely shops and a most scenic drive with stone walls of all sorts of picturesque types around its agricultural areas. So the location of Cliffside is quite perfect for staying home to relax with a great view, or heading out in all direction of the compass to explore, or finding anything you need in a very short distance from the house.

We would absolutely recommend this property, and this owner to friends and relatives.
