We very much enjoyed our time here - a great location and a clean, comfortable stay. Thank you!
I STAYED AT THE PROPERTY WITH A FRIEND FOR 4 DAYS THIS PAST WEEK. THIS WAS A GREAT TIME TO BE IN NEWPORT. THE WEATHER WAS GREAT, AND THERE WERE VERY FEW TOURSTS.
THE APARTMENT WAS VERY CLEAN AND WELL STOCKED WITH APPLIANCES AND DISHWARE.
THE LOCATION IS INCREDIBLE; CLOSE TO THE MANSIONS AND RESTAURANT ROW.
MANSION TIP: SAVE MARBLE HOUSE AND THE BREAKERS FOR YOUR LAST TOURS. OTHERWISE, YOU MAY BE LET DOWN BY THE SMALLER HOUSES. I THOUGHT THEY WERE ALL WONDERFUL, BUT I CAN SEE WHY PEOPLE MIGHT BE DISAPPOINTED. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING IN ONE OF THE MANSION GIFTSHOPS, IT MIGHT BE IN THE LARGE ONE AT THE BREAKERS, BUT NO GUARANTEE. GET IT WHEN YOU SEE IT.
THE BEDS ARE COMFORTABLE. THERE ARE AIR CONDITIONERS AND CEILING FANS IN ALL OF THE ROOMS.
THE BATHROOM HAS LOTS OF HOT WATER AND A NICE SHOWER.
THE TELEVISION CHANNELS ARE LIMITED, BUT WE WEREN'T REALLY THERE TO CATCH UP ON TV. THERE WAS FREE WI-FI, WE INSTEAD OPTED TO RETIRE TO OUR INDIVIDUAL ROOMS, WATCHING NETFLIX.
THE PARKING AREA IS VERY WIDE, BUT I WOULD SUGGEST A SEDAN OR SMALL SUV. THE ROADS ARE NARROW AND A BIT OF A CHALLENGE TO GET IN AND OUT. THE CAR RENTAL PLACE GAVE US A MINI-VAN. WE MADE IT WORK, BUT IT TOOK A FEW TRIES TO GET IN AND OUT OF THE PARKING AREA. THERE IS FREE PARKING AT THE MANSIONS, BUT IT IS DIFFICULT TO PARK IN TOWN. LEAVE THE CAR AT THE APARTMENT WHEN YOU GO OUT TO EAT.
WE ATE BREAKFAST REALLY CHEAPLY AT GARY'S HANDY LUNCH. IT IS A GREAT DINER (5 AM-3 PM). THERE IS AN ORGANIC MARKET, A STOP AND SHOP AND A LIQUOR STORE ON THE SAME STREET AS THE MANSIONS.
WE ALSO TOOK A DAY TRIP ON THE FAST FERRY TO MARTHAS VINEYARD AND THE 2.5 HOUR TOUR AROUND THE ISLAND. IT IS A GREAT DAY TRIP FROM NEWPORT, BUT DOES REQUIRE A CAR TO GET TO.
I WILL DEFINITELY STAY THERE NEXT TIME I GO TO NEWPORT. JOHN WAS VERY RESPONSIVE.
If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay and to be able to walk to all the shops and restaurants on Thames street, then Johns apartment is for you and your family. It worked out perfect for my daughters OCS graduation. It has all the amenities you need and when comparing to some of the hotel prices it is a great value.
Lovely property right in the heart of the downtown of Newport! Walking distance to shops, restaurants and the harbor. A four or five minute Uber ride to the Breakers and the beach. We couldn't have asked for a better location!
House itself was comfy with charming beach decor and nice sized bedrooms. Kitchen had every appliance and item we needed. Large bathroom. Two large window units and ceiling fans kept us cool and comfortable.
We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to this lovely home.
The apartment in John's home is lovely and the location couldn't be better for accessing the restaurants, shops and waterfront activities in Newport. The property is well stocked with whatever you need and the cleanliness is 5 star! John is exceptional. I left my ipad at a restaurant the last night I was in Newport and was unable to pick it up before I left. He retrieved it for me and couldn't have been nicer in arranging to have it shipped back to me saving me a lot of time and aggravation. These extras are what make a travel experience and host memorable. Many thanks and we will be back.
This rental was absolute perfection. It was extremely clean and in the heart of downtown Newport. Walking distance to everything. John, the owner, was also amazing to work with. I highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.
Enjoy walks to Newport Harbor and it’s wharves, parks, shops, world-class restaurants, museums, The International Yacht Restoration School and a close-up view of international racing and pleasure yachts. The waterfront abounds with multi-million dollar contemporary yachts and exquisitely restored wooden craft.
Also, enjoy colonial Newport, with hundreds of finely maintained seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century historic homes and other points of historical interest. Cobblestones, slate-paved sidewalks and America’s very first gas street lamps recall Newport’s glorious history as the third largest port and sixth largest city in the colonial era. Historic churches include America’s oldest Jewish synagogue and the 1726 Trinity Church. Washington, Lafayette and Rochambeau walked these streets during the Revolutionary War.
Newport’s famed Gilded Age “summer cottages” are on display beginning just two or three blocks in another direction from your location. About a dozen of these magnificent mansions are open to the public and await your awe and admiration. The world famous Breakers, The International Tennis Hall of Fame and the American Museum of Illustration are highlights of well-known Bellevue Avenue.
Finally, not-to-be-missed Cliff Walk overlooking Easton’s Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Bellevue Avenue leads to picturesque Ocean Drive, seven miles of oceanfront glory.
Bicycling, on foot, or by car you’ll encounter the national kite flying center at Brenton State Park and family friendly Gooseberry Beach. Gooseberry includes a calm water lagoon, friendly to the kids, and a great little café. Adults will love cocktails and dinner on the lawn of Inn at Castle Hill, called one of America’s most romantic inns by Conde Nast Traveler. Fort Adams State Park, at the end of Ocean Drive features a restored nineteenth century stone fort and a view back across the harbor to downtown Newport.
Entertainment opportunities are just as close and abundant. The world famous Newport Jazz, Folk and Classical Festivals are complemented by an independent film theater and film festival, live theatre, clubs and the finest dining imaginable. The Gibson Sunset Music Festival features top name musical acts, and ethnic festivals abound throughout the summer.
