Cute and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and this was the perfect place for us! Had all amenities we needed, along with special touches like snacks and coffee. Comfortable bed, AC, and ceiling fans made for a good sleep on a hot summer night. Great stay!

Perfect Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Newport to experience the fourth of July festivities in the area and were not disappointed! The Seaside Retreat was absolutely perfect for the two of us and was the perfect location for walking to downtown Newport as well as getting to other nearby towns (i.e. Bristol, for the famous Fourth of July festivities)! The property has absolutely everything that you need (including a very comfortable king sized bed) plus the goodies waiting for us when we got there were a pleasant surprise! The owners were extremely accommodating and gracious and, if we choose to come back to the area, I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 night stay at the Seaside Retreat was amazing! We were beyond pleased the moment we walked in. The room was impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. The thought and care put into making our stay comfortable is immediately evident. Snacks, coffee, bottled water and juices were made available to us. We are even sold on the Keurig and thinking of getting one ourselves:) James and Keverne were just a call or text away and they checked to make sure we had all we needed. They were so easy and pleasant to work with. The restaurants and local businesses were a just a few blocks away and even more shops a minute or two further. A completely quaint and safe neighborhood no matter how late in the evening. We fell in love with the charm and idyllic setting of the town. We can't wait to come back. Thank you James and Keverne for making our stay so enjoyable!

Great location and comfy room

  • 5 of 5

This is a tiny space, perfect for two people. We loved it. The walls between this unit and the other unit are a little thin, but we wouldn't let that keep us from staying here again. The rooms have been updated and are well-maintained (and very clean!), and the king size bed may be the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. It's a quick walk to great local breakfast and night spots. We felt safe in the neighborhood at all times of the day and night.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Seaside retreat was great for our 2 night stay in Newport. It was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. My fiance's only complaint was the cable did not have many options, mainly ESPN, but I don't think that is a draw back since we only spent a couple hours in the room, with the TV on. Overall it was great and perfect for our weekend.
