About the owner: As parents of three young children, we understand what families want in a vacation house. We keep the property in excellent condition, and strive to make the house kid-friendly. We provide baby gates, step stools in the bathrooms, and a fully fenced-in back yard to keep your little ones safe. For your convenience, we also provide beach toys (pails, shovels, etc.) so you don't have to bring these bulky items on your trip. We also provide kid-safe plastic cups and 'fish plates' for them to use. Kids always have a fun time, whether at the beach, playing in the backyard, going on a day trip on the ferry to Block Island, skipping rocks at the pond next to the Point Judith Lighthouse, or while doing a multitude of other activities.
But we know the trip is also meant to be a vacation for you. At the end of the day, you can kick back and have a cocktail in the comfortable and spacious living area and watch a movie on the 42' HD television in air conditioned comfort, or relax in the backyard, with all of the conveniences of home at hand.
We spend about a month in the house ourselves every summer so you can rest assured that we keep EVERYTHING in top condition.
We hope you spend your holiday in our home and enjoy it as much as we do.
All the best,
Derek and Victoria Schnure
Why the Owner Chose Narragansett: We love the fact that we are only 3 hours from our winter home in New Jersey and have so many options of things to do. We can walk to the beach, take day trips to Block Island from the ferry (only 3 miles from our house), go to Newport, Watch Hill, visit the Norman Bird Sanctuary near Newport, head up to the Roger Williams Zoo near Providence, and many other fun things. The kids look forward to going to the Point Judith Lighthouse to skip stones in the pond or watch the surfers. Our visits to Narragansett are definitely the high points of the year, and are looked forward to all winter.
The Unique Benefits at this House: A nice thing about staying in our home is that we are very close to some beautiful beaches and there are many options of things to do, but at the end of the day you can come back to the property and relax in peace and comfort. There's plenty of space for playing and relaxing in the house or elsewhere on the property. We generally set up our kids' toys in the laundry room/mudroom, which is adjacent to the living room. The kids like having their own place to play!
