This classic beach cottage had a complete renovation inside and out in 2011. It is located in the most desirable section of Bonnet Shores, and is a 250 yard walk to beautiful Kelly Beach, the private beach for Bonnet Shore residents and renters. This cottage is one of the closest to the beach available as a (rental) property. A very family friendly community with a great mix of full time and seasonal home owners, as well as renters. The cottage is tastefully decorated and comfortable. Custom pillows, original art, estate sale treasures mixed with new purchases are combined in a casual seaside decor. The cleaning service guarantees its work, you will be welcomed to a beautifully cleaned home. It has hardwood floors throughout (bathroom is tile). Fabulous granite countertops in a stocked kitchen with center island, stainless steel appliances, range with warming drawer, and convection microwave and bead board backsplash. The dining/living area is open concept and the screened in porch provides additional living space. Each of the three bedrooms have a roomy closet and lots of storage space even though the rooms are small. The bunk bed room has custom made bunks that have pullout drawers and a passageway for the kids to play/crawl through. The lower bunk was built to provide headroom for an adult to sit comfortably. The top bunk is fine for children and small adults but headroom is low. (5'7' daughter fits comfortably) The bead board bathroom is three years old and has tub/shower/toilet/vanity. The wrap around front porch, back deck and screened porch were all added in 2011/2012 and feature quality materials and detail. The outdoor shower is refreshing after a day at the beach, brisk morning walk around the 5K loop or other fun activities in Narragansett. The front and back yard are grass and under the back porch is a small outdoor shaded sitting area. All beach carts, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, toys and wagon are easily accessible for use. Full Size washer/dryer located in basement with a laundry chute. There is also a drying rack and clothesline available for those who wish to be 'greener'. Wifi and cable are included.
Kelly Beach : The soft sand at Kelly Beach is groomed regularly, keeping it pristine for it's visitors. A short board walk leads to one of the finest private beaches in New England with beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean and coastline. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer. There is no public parking at Kelly Beach, although drop off is allowed. This keeps the beach less crowded and available only to Bonnet Shores Residents, Guests, and the Bonnet Shores Beach Club. (We are not members of the Beach Club. The Beach Club is for members who own a beach cabana located at the club and pay yearly dues for amenities including pool, tennis, restaurant & parking. Members come from many areas of RI including families from Bonnet Shores who live too far away to walk to beach.) From this cottage, the walk is easy, 250 yards, and there is a beach cart and wagon for use.

About the owner: Reside in CT with our 3 children. We were involved in all decisions in the renovation of this cottage. High quality materials inside and out were used with shore living in mind. Original cobblestones were found buried along the property line in the front and reused with stones from a demolished wall. Salvaged bluestone from an estate sale at a seaside home in Branford, CT were relocated to provide front steps and the area in front of the outdoor shower. Found treasures in various locations in New England were included in the renovation and decoration. All the paint used was chosen for a specific color and 'beachy' name.
Why the Owner Chose Bonnet Shores: Being able to walk to a beach was the best feature of this home when we bought it even tho it needed extensive renovation and updating. The area of Bonnet Shores has a great sense of neighborhood, beautiful homes and gardens set out on a penninsula of Narragansett between the Atlantic Ocean and Narragansett Bay.
