Little Compton Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8 (max 4 adults)

'Starboard Watch' is a quaint seaside cottage located 50 yards from the water. A comfortable porch offers a great view of boats entering and leaving Sakonnet Harbor, along with the coast of Newport in the distance. A swimming rock is 100 yards from the home and sandy beaches are a short walk. The well known Stone House restaurant is half a mile away.

The Sakonnet point area of Little Compton offers a beautiful setting for seaside relaxation and recreation. The Point is a common destination for road bikers and those simply out for a Sunday drive but limited access means the area is calm in the busy summer season, and very quiet and serene during the shoulder months.

Enjoy fishing off the rocky shoreline or harbor breakwater , or maybe just crabbing with your kids. Ride your bike; swim at the beach or off the rocks; walk 'the Loop'; or just chill on the porch with a good book. You wont find a more affordable elegant setting than Starboard Watch on Sakonnet Point.

We had a great time and the cottage worked out perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was the perfect retreat for us. It had all the necessary ammenities for a comfortable stay and most importantly had a wonderful location. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching beautiful sunsets and riding our bikes around Little Compton. Newport was a great place to visit and on a rainy day we ventured to Maine for antiquing. Thank you for sharing your home with us... we'd love to come back!

Just what I needed

  • 5 of 5

I fell in LOVE with the house online. But to actually see and stay in the house was amazing. I was traveling with 2 teenage daughters and a family friend. There wasn't a TV which worried me especially with the teenagers, but It was the best time ever!!! The porch sucked us in every morning and night, relaxing and playing games. Beautiful location and wonderful house. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Who knew a beautiful cottage with a view and sweet memories would lead to a proposal for life!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted something special. After all I hadn't seen my high sweetie in 46 years and Starboard Watch was perfect for this old sailing gal to reconnect and rekindle! If you are looking for bling...keep looking. If you are looking for simple and sweet comforts with views, cozy fires, as well as all the amenities you could possibly need then Starboard Watch is for you. If you are looking for serenity, love, relaxation, and a lifetime of memories please do not hesitate to lease this nostalgic treasure. Can't think of a better place for a honeymoon ;)

Beautiful house in the perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

First time renting a house and everything worked out perfectly. The house itself is beautiful along with the yard (Pictures do no justice for how big it actually is). I won't even get started on what it was like waking up in the morning looking out into the ocean. Or watching the sunset at night. This house really makes you appreciate the little things in life. Little Compton is a very gorgeous town with the nicest people I have ever met. Everyone we came in contact with decided to start a conversation with us. A few beaches nearby that are perfect for morning walks. A+ all around!

It's great for 8!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 8 people, from 2 yrs old to 83 yrs old, and the house fit us perfectly!! There was plenty of room to spread out! While some enjoyed just watching the boats on the water while sitting on the porch, others loved the space to run, play, and climb on the rocks around the yard and along the shore. The sunsets on the water were spectacular, the calming sounds of the waves washing on the rocks was soothing to fall asleep to, and the warmth of the fireplace took the chill out of the air when we needed it. Buck quickly answered any questions we had, and we had a lot, and made the arrangements to rent so easy using this web site. We would definitely rent this house again!!

This is the perfect vacation rental. Huge yard. beautiful sunrise and sunset. Very hard to tear yourself away from this house. great place to relax and have family get togethers. Very secluded. I would recommend this vacation rental and i would defiantely love to stay there again. 1 week is not long enough you need to stay at least 2 weeks because i can guarantee the first week you will not want to move off of the porch
