3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Spacious Home w/ Pool and Water Views
About Claire Sheth
After years and years of vacationing at the Cape, friends invited us to their home in Narragansett, RI and we were so impressed we decided to explore the area for our following summer's vacation. We rented Walhalla in Shelter Harbor and pretty much never looked back. After 1 week, we were all in, buying a relative fixer-upper in the community to share with friends and help convert others to this wonderful but unassuming beach destination.
Claire Sheth purchased this House in 2013

Nice house, great pool. Perfect location.
The house is larger than it looks. The pool and surrounding deck is wonderful. Shelter Harbor is a lovely community and a delightful area to stroll about throughout the day. The private beach is the perfect place to enjoy the Rhode Island shore.
Thanks so much Sullivan family! I'm so glad the house worked out for you and facilitated a family reunion for you all. Hope to see you back next year!
Great family friendly vacation spot
We have been vacationing in Shelter Harbor for over 20 years. This house was perfect for our growing family. Our grandchildren loved walking down to the dock and watching the boaters, taking turns in the hammock and simply enjoying the outdoor space. The private beach is only a short drive and is one of the reasons we continue to vacation here. Watch Hill, Newport and Mystic Seaport are all just a short distance away and provide dining, shopping and fun for everyone. The house is well equipped and comfortable with plenty of room for everyone. We are already planning our vacation here for next summer!
Great breezes in New England shore retreat
This is a very relaxed and informal shore retreat with a space for everyone in the group.We enjoyed the breezy screened-in porch and the glimpses of the pond that could be seen from that porch. The walk down to the dock is easy and the benches provide a great view of the waterway. The house is well-stocked with plenty of towels and beach equipment, a full array of kitchen equipment and many games. We enjoyed the private uncrowded beach about a 10 minute drive away.
There is a good choice of food shops and restaurants nearby. Trips to Watch Hill, Mystic Seaport and Newport were fun.
We are 6 girls who go away every year for a girls weekend. This home is in a beautiful area and the home was very roomy and had everything we needed. With 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths we all had ample time in the morning to get ready. We visited nearby Newport and toured one of the mansions. We also took the ferry to Block Island and had a lovely day there. The home was so roomy and had several areas where we could relax and enjoy a
glass of wine. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone traveling to this area.
Perfect for families with very busy children
We loved the house, the location, the activities, the big sofas, the bunk beds .... the list goes on and on. We had 6 children who were able to be active by day (swimming, canoeing, crabbing, paddle-boarding, or out playing lawn games) and restful by night (games on screened-in porch, film in family room, reading in sitting room). The bunk room (2 sets of bunk beds) was a major hit with the children, as was the hammock and the hot outside shower. From the parents' perspective, the amply sized kitchen table coupled with dining options in the porch made eating easy, as did the well-stocked cupboards with crockery/cutlery etc. Best of all - very safe neighborhood where even the youngest children could run from house down to dock. We loved it!
Comfortable house with lovely surroundings - 2 families could easily share
We had a fabulous time at this house last summer. Recently redone, it was well stocked and had all of the amenities we needed for all ages to have a great time. We had many fun games of catch and soccer on the large lawn, walked to the tennis courts, pond and beach. As others mentioned, its a very quiet neighborhood so we felt fine with kids out on the lawn as we were cooking, etc. Several roomy, comfortable places to gather, so in the evenings, the kids could watch a movie in the family room or play games on the huge screen in porch while the adults sat outside, in the comfy living room or kitchen, etc. For a 3 bedroom house, there is LOTS of room to spread out, so the house feels much larger. Westerly is a cute town. My kids enjoyed the carousel, the shops and ice cream close by. One night a local restaurant/tavern had a trivia game that was family appropriate and our group of kids (ages 7-12) had a BLAST! We took close day trips to Mystic and Newport - there is so much to do in the area. We will definitely be back!!!
