About The Owner

Dave and Michele Berry. We've been managing 2 beach houses in Sand Hill Cove area of Narragansett for over 10 years. We love meeting all the new people and being able to provide great accommodations for family vacations! It's been awesome re-welcoming so many return guests as well. We continue to love caring for these beautiful houses and our wonderful guests.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Narragansett area

Sand Hill Cove (or Roger Wheeler Beach) is a great beach vacation area. The beach, located just 4-5 minute walk (no crossing any major streets) is geared for families with little ones. This beach has calm waters and many amenities such as a play ground, showers, bathrooms, and concession stands. We are also located within a very short walking distance of several restaurants. A slightly longer walk or very short drive takes you into the fishing village of Galilee. There you will find shops, restaurants, some nightlife, and the fishing boats of Rhode Island... a great place to pick up fresh seafood to bring back to the house. The Point Judith Lighthouse is a very short drive or bike ride from the house as well.

What makes this house unique

We love the sound of the fog horns and the sound of the ocean at night. The horn from the Block Island ferry during the day. We love the glimpses of the water we get from the upstairs windows and deck. The neighborhood is a quiet dead-end street with very little traffic.

We love Charlie-O's restaurant which is a 3-4 minute walk from the house. The food is good, the service is very friendly. The pub area is warm and welcoming, and the upstairs martini bar is cool and incredibly good!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi and welcome to our beach home. The past several summers have been so much fun. We've had a great time meeting some of our guests, learning more about hidden Narragansett while trying to provide guests with information about the area.

This spring we added a new half bath and freshened up some rooms.

We're looking forward to helping our guests for 2009 have a great vacation.

We are now booking for 2010.

Looking forward to the summer!

great vacation for 3 family generations

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation with my children and their families. Everything was just as described and the owners were helpful and friendly. The 4 grandchildren (ages 2 to 8 years old) found safe places to explore and play indoors and outdoors. Everyone enjoyed the bikes and toys left in the shed--especially the wagon. The little ones rode in the wagon for the short walk to and from the beach. We plan to stay here again!

Beautiful home with a constant breeze!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home (8 adults, 5 kids under age 5) and we had an amazing vacation. This house was spotless upon arrival and had everything we needed. We were worried about not having central air throughout the house, but we didn't need it because of the breeze that you get being on top of a hill. You are about a 1/4 of a mile from Roger Wheeler Beach (excellent family beach and the same is super soft). You have restaurants and ice-cream less than a mile away, with tons of side streets to go for a walk. Excellent customer service by the owners! My family and I are hoping to rent next year :)

Delighted stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and spacious cottage. It is a very short walk to the beach. We have three boys (2 1/2 yr old twins and a 5 yr old) All three were able to make the walk.(Twins at least half way on their own.) There are 5 very nice bedrooms that accommodated very well four adults, a 10 wk old, 2-2 1/2 yr olds and a 5 yr old. Great open dining room and living room area made it nice to all be in the same place at once. Nice little yard for the kids to play in and two nice decks. The lower deck is perfect for hanging out or having dinner outside.

It took 6 years and 4 more grandchildren between visits to this outstanding vacation home. We were all impressed by the improvements to the kitchen and the new, to us, downstairs bath. The accommodations were wonderful for the eleven of us. Spent a good bit of time on the spacious porch from morning coffee with Allie's donuts to Sakonet Spinaker White wine in the evening. I would highly recommend this house for families with children of all ages. All of us hope our next trip won't take so long.

Great Week

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week. We've rented houses in the past and have never had a house so well stocked with attention to comfort, fun and accomodating large groups. The owners have thought of everything and provided a lot of "extras". Toys in the shed, ample supplies of linens, restaurant and tourist info, and a well stocked kitchen. We had 3 families and guests and there was always room to sit and enjoy the company. We spent a lot of time on the great deck and the kids enjoyed the yard which is also beautifully landscaped. Great place!!

Lovely house and lovely hosts. Quick walk to the beach; great breezes even on the hottest days. Pots big enough to cook a 13 lb. lobster. Cannot wait until next year.
