This half-house (think condominium) offers a comfortable and clean home for a couple or small family. You'll love the ocean vistas, the large yard for playing games, the covered porch for reading and chatting. There are three bedrooms (double bed, twin beds, single bed) 1.5 baths, outdoor shower, combined living/dining room, a small kitchen, a large covered porch, and a large yard.
The house is located on a private point, within easy walking distance to either the swimming beach or the 'rocky beach.' For bicyclists and runners, this is a delightful location because you can enjoy biking or running on shaded, scenic country roads. At night, you'll fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. In the morning, you'll wake up to the sun rising over the ocean.
The house is heated with just a gas fireplace, so please do not ask about winter rentals. I have primarily repeat tenants during the summer months (July and August) but want to encourage more May/June and Sept/Oct rentals. You won't regret taking an off-season vacation!
Note: The State of RI assesses an 7% rental tax that you will need to add to the fee. The cleaning fee is an additional $75 (paid in cash at the time of departure), unless you want to leave the house in move-in condition for the next group.
This house has been in the family for years. It's a classic RI summer house. We rent the North End; I grew up in the South End and spend weekends there. The North End has it's own entrance, plenty of privacy, and is enjoyed by all who choose to rent it. Unused rooms in the middle of the house buffer the North and South ends, so noise and privacy are not an issue.
Nancy Clark purchased this house in 1860
The house has been passed down through the generations. You will want to enjoy it's history, charm, and peaceful pleasures. The location is ideal ... ocean views, walk to the beach, big yard, wonderful porch. People have referred to this as a "happy home" -- saying they love seeing the renters on the porch relaxing, reading, enjoying meals, chatting, playing games ... renewing themselves. When you get our of your car, you'll take a deep breath of ocean air and your stress will then dissipate. Ahhhhhh.... peaceful!
What you'll love about this house is the porch and it's panoramic views. The porch is shaded, cool and comfortable, offers a peaceful ocean vista, and it so relaxing. Most renters enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinners on the porch, to say nothing of reading books and chatting with friends on the porch! You'll also love the yard -- perfect for whiffle ball, frisbees, and croquet. The inside is clean and comfortable, complete with jigsaw puzzles and games for a rainy day.
What a beautiful location. The pictures on VRBO do not do justice to the surrounding area. There are water views from most parts of the house, and the beach (two or three hundred yards away) is spectacular. The house itself is lovely with comfortable beds and ample space to lounge or play games in the living room. The owner was extremely nice. Bathrooms are a bit dated, but no problems with them. This house was just what we needed for a family of five. The weather the second week in October was a little cool in the mornings, but heat in the living room was all we needed to keep warm and comfortable.
Our family of four has rented this property year after year; no summer is complete without a visit. It's the perfect spot to kick back and enjoy summer in a quiet and gorgeous paradise, Little Compton. This "North End" property sits on Warren's Point, an exclusive spit of land surrounded by the ocean on three sides. These amazing views can be enjoyed from the stately home's porch. The interior is more than comfortable however we live on the porch when we're there and enjoy dinner on the porch each evening as the sun sets in the west. It's simply lovely. The home features historic details that recall another time.
Our boys enjoy playing whiffle ball, croquet or volleyball on the spacious lawn. Even though there is wifi, this time away is always a good opportunity for them to unplug from the world and enjoy time together as a family. Warren's Point Beach Club is a leisurely walk from the North End and is worth the temporary membership fee for access to its gorgeous and uncrowded beach. Ask the owner about the diving rocks that the lifeguards open when the surf allows. It's a thrill!
If you need a break from the sun and fun at the beach, there are several enjoyable sites close by including Carolyn's Sakonnet Vineyards and shopping at Tiverton Four Corners. Or you could take a drive to explore Bristol with its museums, shops and restaurants, or enjoy a day in Newport (45 min from the North End).
Once you come to Little Compton, you'll be planning your next trip. Don't miss out on visiting this historic gem --- and only tell your closest friends! We don't want the secret to get out!
We had a wonderful stay in Little Compton. This is a great home in a prime location. There are great restaurants, vineyards and incredible ocean views in Little Compton and the surrounding towns. We came to visit friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners are wonderful to work with and the Wifi is great too. Very highly recommended! Thank you!
A group of friends and I had a wonderful stay here over Memorial Day weekend. The house and property are beautiful and kept in wonderful condition. We loved relaxing on the wrap-around porch with it's beautiful ocean views, and sitting by the cozy fireplace in the evenings. Gorgeous Warren's Point Beach is a very short walk down the road and there is a lot of outdoor space which we took full advantage of playing lawn games and barbecuing. It was a fantastic, relaxing, wonderful stay all around.
You can keep yourself busy swimming at the beach or talking long walks and bike rides on country roads, or you can just relax in the hammock and read books while enjoying the cool ocean breezes. Little Compton is known for it's peacefulness.
Newport (Mansions) and Providence (City-life) are about 45 minutes away; Fall River (movies) and New Bedford (whaling museum) about 30 minutes.
