- Our 'SEASIDE' cottage, is set up and ready for your arrival. The fact that you are right on the beach, allows you to be there most of the time. If you have a volley ball liking... bring it with you and set it up on the beach! The deck is nice for the late afternoons, when you want to cool off and relax with a beverage, snack or book. Deck has chairs, table, umbrella and lounge. I have had the cottage for over 20 years and it is a little piece of 'seaside' heaven. The key will be on the table, door unlocked.... we are ready when you are! Ninigret Park is just down the street and offers a new playground, fishing access, nature trails, swimming lagoon, tennis courts, etc. A great change for a day away from the beach...but still outside with nature! Also Block Island is a great day trip, or Galilee, Newport, Watch Hill, Narragansett. The seaside villages are everywhere! For an evening out, Foxwoods is 20 min. away. I think the deck offers a better night out, with the surf and stars!...moreless

Fabulous Ocean Front Cottage
Fabulous Ocean Front Cottage
This small cottage attached to main quarters at Charlestown Beach is perfect for a couple. The porch overlooks a private beach and the view is absolutely stunning. The cottage is equipped with everything you need -- including homemade bread and a bottle of wine -- to make your stay absolutely perfect. Swim, fish or bask in the sun on your own private beach and enjoy your vacation in a luxurious way. Close to shopping and entertainment, this cottage has it all.

Awesome end of summer weekend
Awesome end of summer weekend
What an Awesome house. Location is great, cant get any better then on the beach. There was plenty of room for all in my party. The description was right on point and the Owner's response to my questions was immediate. We rented the entire house for the weekend and it worked out perfect. You can tell how much the owner cares because of the wonderful updated floors are beautifule and the couches are comfortable and best of all listening to the waves crashing while you fall asleep. It's location is convienent to the taste of Mystic and Point Judith. After the first shower you learn not to open you mouth or eyes( you are on the ocean) but other than that it was a wondrful weekend in a beautiful house. Cant wait for next year. Thanks

A true seaside cottage
A true seaside cottage
Desparate to get to the beach, I inquired about this property since I wasn't sure how many people/families from my group would be going and the ad said sleeps 4-12. Well, lucky for us the side for 4 was open! (Who knew we'd be lucky enough to be at the beach?!) Because the owner was so accomodating we were able to pull off a wonderful 3 days right on Charlestown Beach in her little beach cottage. I just read the other reviews and can confirm the location, location, location! Also I just saw the recommendation for the Matunuck Oyster Bar. Luckily we found that on our own and had a great meal in spite of the pouring rain (entrees got soaked upon delivery, but were still good). We saw a terrific "light show" and fortunately recieved our meal prior to the restaurant losing power. We were glad we had power at the house when we returned! Also glad the "master" bedroom had a ceiling fan and more glad we brought a small one from home. I suggest you bring one because if you have to close the windows due to rain, it does get pretty stuffy, otherwise there is a great breeze! Having just gotten a smaller car, we were thrilled beach chairs and umbrellas were found right under the house en route to the beach and when done with them you drop them off right next to the outdoor shower! Yep, the shower is salty, A new experience but not terrible. I guess it could be handy if you have a sore throat. We noticed no smells expect the fabulous salt air. Our last night we "took out" food from the Breachway Grille. Half of it was ready before the rest, and we had to wait so some items didn't travel as well as others, but overall it was very good. I bet if you ate there it would have been even better. For us, we were having such a terrific beach day and early evening we chose to stay on the deck, so a little soggy food, was worth it! If you are willing to sacrifice some space* for location on a terrific beach, rent this cottage. *We were 2 adults and 2 grown kids with another visiting for the day. It's perfect if the weather is good, cozy if it isn't. It's probably ideal for a couple with small children.

This worked out perfectly for our family! We brought our two children, their spouses and and 3 grandchildren. The deck overlooking the ocean was perfect - you can't find a better view in any restaurant so we really enjoyed eating dinner on the deck (when we weren't at the Matunick Oyster Bar). We rented both sides of the house so we could have privacy. The location is also great as the mini supermarket had everything you need and was close by with no traffic to get there. A lot easier for us coming from CT than going to the Cape. Great waves and the water was warmer too. The outdoor shower was perfect - I don't think anyone used the indoor showers at all! As one reviewer noted, the water is salty, but there was plenty of Poland Springs provided and to be expected if you are this close to the beach. The bedrooms were small, but the open living/kitchen/dining area was roomy enough for all of us. The stairs are steep, so we brought gates to block the toddlers' access. It is an older cottage so doesn't have all the brand new construction amenities but the beautiful location more than made up for that!

Owner response: SEASIDE is the perfect location to just sit back and enjoy the sand, surf and sun, so I was very happy to see that you were able to do that. It is very nice to have everything close, so you can spend your time at the cottage and not off traveling, and wasting "beach time". The beach is also a wonderful walking beach, for those late afternoon strolls. I agree the outside shower is what makes a summer vacation. I actually designed the cottage myself, And tried to make the living area as large as possible, so the bedrooms are small, but in the summer, you are only there to sleep. There is a door that can lock at the foot of the stairs, so little ones do not have access to the stairs. We have worked each year on "re-doing" different areas of the cottage. Last year it was all new windows. Next year we will have a new project, as the ocean brings harsh winter weather...but we are very proud of our cottage and strive to keep it in the best condition. There are many wonderful restaurants, but you did hit on the most popular one, THE MATUNUCK OYSTER BAR. the food is amazing and fresh from the waters that the restaurant sits on. Fantastic sunsets....which are also outstanding at SEASIDE! I hope you took lots of pictures, as a beach vacation is a place to re-energize and the pictures will bring back that feeling throughout the remainder of the seasons, until you " are lucky enough to be at the beach!". Thanks for the care of our little slice of heaven!
We stayed in the smaller guest house in July and had a wonderful time. This location is awesome, the beach is literally steps from the house. In fact, we loved it so much that we are returning for the last two weeks of August and renting the larger main house. It was just heavenly and I have no reservations recommending this place.

NIce place but some issues
NIce place but some issues
Beautiful location right on the beach. Spacious and comfortable. We had 11 in our party and it was very comfortable for the weekend. Nice deck. Close to shops and restaurants...a short drive. Again...beautiful location. Not so wonderful was no fresh water for bathing, cooking etc. Bottled water is provided, but if we had to stay longer than a weekend the salt water bathing would be an issue. The guest house bedrooms were small and the bathroom could use an update. Beds were hard. Also, there was quite a strong smell of sewage from the deck in the evening. (septic issues?). Owner has a lengthly list of cleaning expected to be done on your departure.

Owner response: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...right on the beach...and yes, we are on a well. We supply water for drinking and ice...cooking etc. from Poland Springs dispensers. We are on a well, as there is no public water in the area...so that is the choice. At times it is salty...depending on the tide, weather and storms...but most of the time you can barely notice the salt, or not at all. I have been there many times when you can actually drink it, and not taste anything. We just had new kitchen and floors in the main cottage, along with new couches. The guest quarters apartment is small...thus the title apartment, which I mention right up front that the bedrooms are small in both the main downstairs and the apartment, as I designed the cottage myself, and wanted the living area as large as possible, as the bedrooms are only used to sleep in...as it is summer....and guests are either at the beach...relaxing on the deck...or in bed....This also, is explained right up front. The upstairs bedrooms are very large in the main cottage. It is a summer cottage, and I feel in very good shape. It is always very clean and tidy, and ready for guests. The mention of the sewer smell is something I am checking on, as I have not had that mentioned before, and have not had that experience myself. I am guessing we had some sort of funny wind, that caused a back draft....the septic is newer, so I know that is not a problem. ... SEASIDE is a fantastic location, as mentioned by our guest...and it is a summer cottage, a place to enjoy the sun, surf and sand. We love it!....as do most of our guests!!
