Property description

PLEASE NOTE: Our 2015 calendar is completely booked from July 1 thru Labor Day.

Block Island has for the vacationer what doesn't seem possible anymore - utter, complete, kicked-back relaxation. Those who cross the twelve miles from what islanders call 'America,' shed more than their neckties and high heels; they shed schedules and agendas. They find a place where they can drift through the days without pressure, without pretense - a place where getting dressed -up means getting out of a swimsuit and into shorts, where going to the post office is a big event. Bring your family, your bikes and your adventure and sample this way of life for a week this summer!

Our clean, cute 2 bedroom apartment is walking distance to town and the beaches. The apartment is attached to the main house but has its own access with a front and back door. We have installed hardwoods throughout and we pride ourselves on the cleanliness. Each week we turn over the unit personally and make sure it's just the way WE would want to rent it. Every year items are replaced and maintained and updated as needed.

Each bedroom has a bureau and a closet. Ceiling fans are in each room (bedrooms and living room). There are also window fans for your use as well. The couch in the living room pulls out to a queen. There is also a roll away twin bed in the bedroom closet. We do limit the number of occupants to 5. Water and electricity usage is costly to say the least!

The kitchen is outfitted with pots, pans, bowls, etc. There is a coffee maker, toaster and microwave. There are also extra items like wine openers, measuring cups etc.

There is a great front porch w/rockers and a large back yard with a play structure. Our property fronts Harbor Pond where you can launch kayaks or canoes. Gas grill and outdoor shower are available as well. There is plenty of room for bikes and other toys.

We are located steps from the grocery store (we call it our pantry!), the Bagel Shop, the bank and several restaurants. A car is not necessary with our location but should you choose to bring one, there is off street parking.

We realize you are on vacation. There may be some things you do not want to hassle with so we have offered to provide a few extra services. The apartment does not come with linens (sheets, bath towels or beach towels) but for an additional fee of $100 we will have that in the apartment for your arrival. Also, Block Island does not offer garbage pick up. Each tenant is responsible for taking their garbage to the transfer station at the end of their stay. However, for an additional $25 we will do that for you.

Our apartment has been available for rental for the past 15 years. Each year we have multiple return renters. Some have even been coming for the entire 15 years! Our season usually is completely booked by April 1 so if you are considering a stay with us don't wait! We are currently booking for Summer 2012!
