Cozy retreat in Newport

  • 5 of 5

An excellent alternative to the ridiculously priced Newport hotels, this immaculate, contemporary furnished space was the perfect location for exploring the city. My husband and I enjoyed the well appointed sitting area, bedroom with comfy king-sized bed, mini kitchen and modern bath. It was walking distance to Broadway Avenue restaurants, a short drive to all other Newport attractions. The apartment was beautifully furnished and included thoughtful touches such as snacks and chilled beverages, plush towels, plenty of closet space and free parking behind the house. We met owner James on the way out, who was extremely friendly and gracious. Highly recommended!

Clean and comfortable but noisy

  • 3 of 5

The bed was extremely comfortable. The entire room was very clean and decorated beautifully. We had spent the day exploring Newport before we checked in. Since check in was not till 4pm, we did not get settled till close to 5. We decided to take a nap before going out to dinner. As we were doing this it seemed furniture was being moved from the room above us. It was extremely loud and sounded as if bowling balls were being dropped above us. Not sure why this had to be done while guests were there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for commenting that the suite was "very clean and decorated beautifully". We try very hard to provide a comfortable and peaceful experience for our guests. This is clearly seen from viewing our previous 59 ratings averaging 5 stars overall. Therefore , we were surprised and disappointed to receive your 3 star rating due to noise between 5 pm and 6 pm on your arrival day. That day , we needed to move a bed from the third floor of the house. We chose 5 pm to 6 pm , a one hour period, which in our experience as guest house owners, would be the least likely time period to disturb sleeping guests. At all times, we make ourselves available by phone or in person, to answer questions from our guests. Nevertheless, we apologize for this unintentional inconvenience. James and Keverne at Callender House

Wonderful stay in Newport.

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent- away from the hustle and bustle in a quiet neighborhood, but just a couple of blocks to some great breakfast places and pubs and just a few more minutes walk to the harbor. The place was just as pictured! Very comfortable and tastefully furnished.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Seaside Retreat was perfect for me and my husband! The moment we stepped inside I knew we had chosen the right place! It was spotlessly clean, well appointed, and inviting! I loved the navy/white nautical theme and it was obvious that much thought had been given to detail. The king size bed was very comfortable and much appreciated after spending full days seeing the many wonderful sites in Newport! The location of the house is also great and is only a short walk to the wharf, which is a big plus! Along the way, you pass several restaurants, historic sites and shops. We especially enjoyed the Hungry Monkey for breakfast! If ever in Newport again, I would definitely reserve the Seaside Retreat!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Carefully and thoughtfully designed space that had everything we needed and wanted to enjoy our stay. Great location. Quiet. Held the ambiance of Newport enough to return in the heat of the afternoon to enjoy wine and a nap in the room away from the bustle of main street. Would definitely return.
