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.

3 Night stay, June 22-26 for wedding at Fort Adams

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal place to stay while vacationing in Newport ! My wife, daughter and myself enjoyed the hospitality and location of this gem. We stayed at the Seaside Resort Qtrs. which has a bedroom and futon pull-out in the main room. We walked down to Thames St. every night without having to worry where to park. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back !

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The location of this little apartment was prime. One night we walked to town and another time we stayed in the adjacent little neighborhood and had dinner at a local pub. The decor is top notch. There is a keurig machine w/ coffee pods in the room and a small fridge. Hope to return next year!

Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Seaside Retreat was great. The bed is very comfortable and having the Keurig, water, snacks and refrigerator available made our stay much more enjoyable. It's nice to have the extra room in the futon room to relax between trips in and out instead of just a bedoom. We had a busy few days so we weren't in the room very much. Clean and well-maintained property. Only suggestion would be the location of the large TV. It's a little uncomfortable looking up from the futon to watch the large TV. The small TV in the bedroom was a little far away for us to watch from the bed. Maybe switch the TVs around somehow. Thank you for sharing your special place with us. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Newport is a lovely town.
