Narragansett house description
This open and airy contemporary is set back in the lush park like setting of a lovely neighborhood overlooking the Narragansett Bay. It is a private oasis that comfortably hosts an extended family within minutes of beaches and shopping. Although with all the amenities at the house, its often most fun to just stay home and play.
The front welcomes you with wide decks that are the favorite spot for coffee and soaking in the sunrise over the bay. Walking in the main entrance greets you with two story windows with views into the large private yard.
Turning into the fully equiped kitchen with cherry cabinets, top of the line appliances and expansive Italian granite counters. This is an open and bright kitchen that attracts sitters and makes the heart of this home a chic and inviting place where everyone will love to spend time.
An enormous rec room off the back of the house is where people will often congregate. Vaulted ceilings with walls of glass and an expansive stone fireplace. There is a full size pool table, 60 inch plasma tv, bluray dvd and Wii. A long table is perfect to keep a group puzzle going through the trip and a full sized refrigerator in the corner limits your walks to the kitchen.
Stepping out the great room sliders provides peeks into the large and private yard with an acre of meticulously landscaped grounds that border open space.
The large terrace runs the length of the back and steps into an outdoor living space with fireplace and fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Stepping off the terrace reveals the fabulous 14 foot deep swimming pool with diving board. There is a tournament quality ping pong table and another beautiful seating area. This great outside space includes a cabana with the conveniences of kitchenette and shower.
Inside and out, this fun and inviting home will comfortably host your family within ten minutes of Narragansett center and fifteen to Newport.
We test drive Horizon often to make the home a great experience for friends and family to share. We feel its an ideal venue to bring people together for a number of days. Whether your up for a competitive game of ping pong, an impromptu game of billiards or a chat on lounges around the pool, getting people back together is what Horizon is all about.
So come experience a glass of wine under a blanket of stars watching over lights on the Newport Bridge. This is a wonderfully fun place to spend a little close and quiet time with the ones you love.

As every other review has said this property is absolutely perfect. The pictures show everything but do not do this place justice. We had a fantastic stay. If you are looking for a beautiful house to vacation at this is your place. Whether you are a large family, a few couples or a bunch of guys wanting to get away this is where it is at. It is so close to everything from Newport to the Casinos. I really could keep going on and on at how much we enjoyed our stay but I will leave you with this, not only is the property wonderful the owners were a delight to do business with. Thank you again for renting out your house!

Just as the photos show, this is a very spacious property in a lovely residential area, and the owners have provided most everything you could think of. The outdoor space was gorgeous and perfect for children to swim and play, and adults to relax. There's a large table for outdoor dining and we really enjoyed the wood burning fireplace in the cool evenings. On two rainy days we had the option of Newport, where there's plenty to do, and sunny days were spent at beautiful Narragansett Beach. Jody responded promptly to our question regarding the fridge in the rec room. Would definitely recommend this property.

Owner response: Judy, We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We try to make every effort to make the house beautiful and functional, so it was nice to hear that you felt you had everything you needed and that you were able to really enjoy the new outdoor space. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. The feedback is important to us and very much appreciated. Robin (Jody's sister)

The house was even better then its description. It was immaculate and very well equiped with everything you could possibly need. Lots of room for the children to run around and even a dog bed for our lab. The pool was great and the beach nearby. To some, it may seem a little pricey, but to us, it was worth every cent we paid. The restaurants were all crowded, but that's to be expected this time of year. The owners were very helpful and sent us a lot of information about the house, shopping areas and restaurants. It was a great trip and I highly recommend this property.

Great Place to Relax

We had 3 couples stay at this property for the week. The pool and house were as described in the ad. The new outdoor kitchen/sitting area was quite nice, (though the patio stone get awful hot in the hottest part of the day). The kitchen was big and had plenty of room for 2-3 people to work at a time. We had a couple of guests pop in for a couple of days here and there throughout the week and the air mattresses worked beautiful to give the people a place to sleep. The house had two separate sitting rooms which worked well for our clan. Overall I was pleased with the way the house was set-up and the accurate description of the property on the website.

Memorial day weekend girls getaway.
Memorial day weekend girls getaway.
My sister-in-law and I rented this house for a weekend getaway with her bridal party a few weeks before her wedding, and I'm so glad we did. The house is absolutely stunning. The photos online truly do not do it justice. The home is huge, clean and modern. Its nestled in the most picturesque neighborhood and you can actually see the ocean from the front deck. It has all of the latest appliances and any extra amenities you may have forgotten to bring from home. (beach towels, blankets, linens!) Jody was so helpful with everything we needed and the communication before and during the stay was excellent. The back yard was,by far, my favorite part. The in-ground pool, stone patio and out door fire place are a dream. We ran into a slight dilemma when we first arrived and Jody helped us resolve the issue almost immediately. I would absolutely recommend this lovely home to friends and family. Thanks again !!!!

The house is wonderful and it lives up to the pictures and reviews that you read on this site. I think the best attribute are the owners. They are very responsive to your requests and care about the quality of your stay in their home. This is an excellent choice and I plan on returning.

We had a great stay at this property...the house is in excellent condition with all new appliances, a fantastic backyard with fireplace/grill, and even a pool and ping pong table. Nothing but positive things to say about this house. The owners were very responsive and a pleasure to communicate with.

First and foremost, Jody was incredibly responsive to any and all questions, and was an absolute pleasure to deal with! She really made the whole process easy and stress-free. The property is beautiful. It's located in a quiet neighborhood, with water views from the front yard, and an absolutely amazing set up in the backyard. We stayed at the property in April so the pool was closed, unfortunately, but that did not stop us from enjoying the space. The paver-stones are beautiful, the grill is top of the line, and there is a great wood burning fire place out there too! The back of the home features a "man-cave" with a pool table, ping pong table, fridge & big screen TV! There were 15 of us staying at the house and we had no problems with privacy and sleeping space. Narragansett, RI is such a great town/city for vacations. The only way to improve upon that is with the right rental property, and this home offers just that.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We bought this house as a 3 generational family so we can enjoy a few weeks a year together.
Why the Owner Chose Narragansett:
We have vacationed in Narragansett for years and always viewed houses while here. When we walked through Horizon, everyone felt the extended family would be comfortable in the space. The rec room with pool table and 60' hi def tv, the large pool, multiple seating areas inside and out gives everyone places to share and still find a quiet place to read. And we always stay amused in Narragansett. It has great beaches for the little kids, kitesurfing beaches for the older kids and sporty adults, and typical New England downtowns for shopping and hanging out. Horizon is 10 miles from Newport, an hour to Foxwoods and Mystic Seaport, slightly longer to Boston.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The backyard is truly an oasis. The kids will have a blast diving into the 14' deep pool. Lounge by the cabana, read with a view of the bay, or eat by the garden. This house has 3 decks and 2 yards - plenty of space to play together or in separate groups. in 2013, we will have an outdoor kitchen and living room.
