Middletown house description

Located on the Newport/Middletown line next to St. George’s School, this sunny two-bedroom, second-floor vacation apartment is within walking distance of First Beach (Easton’s) or Second Beach (Sachuest) and the famous Newport Cliff Walk. An easy walk to popular restaurants and pubs including Johnny’s Atlantic Beach Club, Tickets and Flo’s Clam Shack.

A perfect home base for exploring historic Newport year 'round! There is so much to enjoy, all about a five-minute ride away. Spend the day at the beach, afternoons sightseeing or shopping on Thames Steet, and nights at lively restaurants and clubs on Newport Harbor. Visit one of the many famous mansions open for tours (the Astors’ Beechwood mansion and The Breakers – the grandest of Newport’s summer “cottages”!) or one of the major recreational attractions including Kings Park (live concerts), Brenton Point State Park, (kite flying) and Sail Newport Yachting Center / Fort Adams. A short distance to Newport Slots, Carnegie Abbey and Newport National, known for world-class golfing.

Known as “America’s First Summer Resort,” Newport, Rhode Island, is the home of The International Tennis Hall of Fame, Newport Preservation Society, The Newport Jazz Festival, Music Festival, Folk Festival, and the Newport Film Festival.

And, of course, there's the Newport Winter Festival voted the 'Best Off-Season Event' by Newport Life Magazine's 'Best of Newport' Awards. Traditions here include polo on the beach, seal cruises, live music and ice-skating in downtown Newport.

This vacation rental is perfect for families, and/or couples’ or singles’ getaways. Small pets are okay, with deposit.

                        We found this property to be very clean, well appointed and ideally situated for access to everywhere we needed to go. We particularly enjoyed the back deck as well as the inside porch. Plenty of room for 4 adults to spread out. sometimes tricky with just one bathroom but we made it work.Owner very easy to deal with, wanted to be sure all was okay for us during our stay. Very positive experience.

                        WE could not have asked for more! Such a charming apartment in a charming house with absolutely charming owners. House and grounds are perfectly kept and super comfortable and I think if you needed anything Barbara and Ed would do their best to get it for you if at all possible. If you want a relaxing time near the beach, Newport etc. this is the place. Barbara and Ed make you feel comforable as soon as you get there and you really feel like the place is yours! WE slept well and ate well ( in a well appointed kitchen) and enjoyed all the benefits of the Middletown/Newport area. You are literally minutes from all the fun or you can sit in the lovely back yard or the lovely deck off the bedroom and relax. Thank you again, Barbara and Ed and hope to see you next year!

                        We had a wonderful week in this charming second floor of the owner's home. It was spacious for all four of us to enjoy and relax. What you see in the picture's is exactly what it is like. The pillowtop beds were wonderful, and we slept very well here. The deck off the master bedroon was a great spot to relax. The property is well maintained and they are truly lovely people. You can walk through the grounds of the beautiful St. George's School to get to 2nd beach, as long as you weren't taking a lot of beach equipment. We walked to Flo's and Rusty's for live music on Friday and Saturday night. We are returning next year, since it was just a perfect vacation for our family.

                        This could not have been a better vacation. We were in town for our friend's wedding in Newport and upon arrival, we were greeted by our hosts who were friendly, but also respectful of our privacy, throughout the entire weekend. The place itself is incredibly clean and well decorated and provides great comfort. Additionally, the location is in a great spot with walking distance to the beach and several great bars and restaurants (be sure to check out Atlantic Grille for breakfast!) If this all wasn't enough, the place has a roof deck that you could sit on for days! Overall, a great value and somewhere I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to stay in again should I find myself in Newport.

                        Our experience was stellar. The location was perfect for our time at the sea- the beach was lovely. The property exceeded expectations- immaculate, inviting, comfortable. We cooked in and found the kitchen well stocked with equipment, as well as the grill outdoors. Great lobsters from Anthony's. We enjoyed a star-lit evening on the upper deck.The landscaping was beautiful and our host so warm and accommodating.We are already booked for a repeat visit. Our warmest regards to our hosts and to future guests- this is a real gem!

                        Dear Barbara and Ed, This place is great. Wake up to coffee and tea on the deck - head out to the many attractions in the area - end the day with a cocktail on the deck. We slept like babies lulled to sleep by the far off melodies of the fog horns. Thank you so much! You're great hosts.

                        Dear Barb and Ed, You were great hosts and made us feel very comfortable while hurricane Irene was blowing trees and rain outside! We had a wonderful time on Third Beach - quiet - perfect for a baby. Your house is very cozy and child friendly. It was a breeze staying with a 19-month old. We could not have done this in a hotel. Did I mention that you provided coloring books? So very thoughtful of you. We hope to see you again!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: My husband, Ed, and I finally took the plunge - sold our house north of Boston and are now residents of Middletown, RI as of August 2013! We've been married 49 years. We have two children, six grandchildren, one great grandson and two Mini Schnauzers. I have a wonderful mother-in-law, who grew up in Newport and loves to spend time with us when she can.

                      Why the Owner Chose Middletown:
                      We have been vacationing in Newport for many years and decided it was time to purchase our own 'Seaside Escape'! We thoroughly enjoy all that Newport has to offer. Our children and grandchildren enjoy Newport as much as we do, and we know we will have frequent visitors when we finally do retire!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This sunny apartment is close enough to walk, bike or ride to all of the wonderful activities in and around Newport, including both First and Second Beaches. Located next to St. George's School, this location offers an escape from the crowds and tourists at the end of the day. It has a beautiful yard our renters can enjoy for grilling and relaxing and a deck/balcony off the master bedroom.
