This half-house offers a comfortable and clean home for a couple or small family. You'll love the ocean vistas, the large yard for playing games, the covered porch for reading and chatting. There are three bedrooms (double bed, twin beds, single bed) 1.5 baths, outdoor shower, combined living/dining room, a small kitchen, a large covered porch, and a large yard. The house is located on a private point, within easy walking distance to either the swimming beach or the 'rocky beach.' For bicyclists and runners, this is a delightful location because you can enjoy biking or running on shaded, scenic country roads. At night, you'll fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. In the morning, you'll wake up to the sun rising over the ocean. The house is heated with just a gas fireplace, so please do not ask about winter rentals. I have primarily repeat tenants during the summer months (July and August) but want to encourage more May/June and Sept/Oct rentals. You won't regret taking an off-season vacation!

About the owner: This house has been in the family for years. It's a classic RI summer house. We rent the North End; I grew up in the South End and spend weekends there. The North End has it's own entrance, plenty of privacy, and is enjoyed by all who choose to rent it. Unused rooms in the middle of the house buffer the North and South ends, so noise and privacy are not an issue.
Why the Owner Chose Little Compton: The house has been passed down through the generations. You will want to enjoy it's history, charm, and peaceful pleasures.
The Unique Benefits at this House: What you'll love about this house is the porch and it's panoramic views. The porch is shaded, cool and comfortable, offers a peaceful ocean vista, and it so relaxing. Most renters enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinners on the porch, to say nothing of reading books and chatting with friends on the porch! You'll also love the yard -- perfect for whiffle ball, frisbees, and croquet. The inside is clean and comfortable, complete with jigsaw puzzles and games for a rainy day.
