About The Owner

Caitlan grew up in Connecticut, Mark grew up in Edmonton, Alberta. We both attended Providence College and have three nearly perfect children:) We have traveled extensively throughout Western Europe, North America and intermittently to Central America and South America. Generally, when we travel we have a few certain criteria that include relatively new, clean, comfortable, and close to engaging activities. When we bought the Tiki Hut we knew we could make some renovations to meet our own criteria and subsequently offer the home to other families with a similar mindset.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Charlestown

We bought this property because it is has all the amenities we could possibly think of for a summer home/rental property. Mark loves to fish, Caitlan loves the beach, and our children love to swim in the pond and explore "mini beach" which is located on the pond side of the main beach (think clamming, build a small fish trap, or chase crabs). The house is close to the pond, a short drive to the ocean, and within a reasonable proximity to Watch Hill, Newport, Providence, and Foxwoods:) When we bought the home we ripped out a wall between the kitchen and the dining room table/great room to create an open style, laid back, relaxing home that feels as if it is a tree house. From any vantage point on the top floor, you see only trees. We also bought the house because we enjoy entertaining and it is literally perfect for two families...one upstairs, one on the ground level. Last, we continue to improve the property with renovations on the ground level in 2015 and the installation of a stone path leading to an outdoor shower...nothing better than getting back from the beach to hit the fresh water outside in a shower.... that's why we bought it, that's why we love it!

A good location and visit

  • 4 of 5

The house fit our needs very well. We were three separate families--parents and our two kids and their families--and the spacing of bedrooms and common areas worked very well. It was a good visit.

I'm sure every visitor has different expectations, but most of what we wanted/needed was there. Plans for next year are not certain but we may see if it will be available for our dates, and we'll now know what we need to bring. Minor things such as clam knives and oyster knives, nothing important.

Shelter Harbor is a great location, and the small swimming area that one can walk to works very well for the kids.

Perfect house located in the wonderful Shelter Harbor Fire District

  • 5 of 5

Warm and welcoming house! We had our family with small children for part of the week, and a girlfriends time the rest. The Shelter Harbor private beach, salt pond area, and neighborhood is perfect for a beach getaway. The house is clean and it was an easy vacation!

Great property with an amazing common space. Perfect for a beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Overall, the property is wonderful and has a lot of cool features that make it a great place to stay. The owners were very responsive and helpful. The beach is a short drive away and the porch is great for hanging out. I would stay again!

A piece of paradise in Rhode Island

  • 5 of 5

To start off, every question that you may have about the property is on the listing. But if you have any follow up questions, Mark and Caitlin responded in a timely manner. Staying at the house during off season was ideal, neighborhood and beach were quite. But if you want to go during the summer season the beach is a short walk away. Everything you think you may need during your stay is there (extra linens, pots and pans,cleaning supplies etc.). Having six in my party made this house a perfect size with everyone having their own space. Would recommend this house to anyone and would stay again in a heart beat. Thanks again to Mark and Caitlin.

Relaxing Two Weeks

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks at the Tiki Hut! The space is very comfortable and relaxing. The wrap around deck is perfect and the house has plenty of things for young kids to do on a rainy day. The beach is gorgeous and my kids (and husband!) spent hours exploring the salt water pond. We love the Shelter Harbor neighborhood which provides for great walks/runs/scoots and very friendly neighbors. We can't wait to go back.
