"Whitegate Cottage is a perfect example of why we love our VRBO vacations. Where else could you stay in a charming cottage with personal touches, get insider tips on best enjoying the destination and really feel like you are living like a local. (Oh, and be able to bring a beloved pet.) If you like chain restaurants, amusement parks and hotel amenities, this is NOT for you. But if you want to an active, natural getaway in an incredibly scenic spot, Whitegate Cottage would be ideal. We particularly liked waking up to birdsong, having coffee on the deck (always breezy!) and then setting out to explore the island by foot or bike. Vail Beach and Rodman's Hollow are near by and afford stunning views. The ship's ladder to the second floor may make this property unsuitable for some--but we found that climbing it was great exercise. The cottage also doesn't have a stove, but we successfully made pasta on the hot plate. And, at the end of the day, the outdoor shower was awesome!"

"I (we) LOVED our stay at Claudia's Surf City. This is our second time staying and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The house is adorable and the views are breathtaking. It has something to offer everyone. Truly - heaps of books, a great record collection, hammocks, bocce, insane views, best outdoor shower ever - what more could we want? The wrap around porch was perfect for eating, relaxing, and sorting whatever rocks/shells the kids collected that day. I cannot say enough about the outdoor shower. Loved it so much I showered during a rain storm. The location of the house is close to perfect. Our family (twins-4, daughter-5 and a big super mutt) spent most of our time walking to town and to the beach. Claudia was so great with us and was more than accommodating. Thank you for providing a such a wonderful getaway home!"

"If I could use decimal ratings, I'd rate our stay at the Minister's Lot Cottage a 3.8.
The house needs some TLC. Some of the windows did not open properly and some did not shut tightly. Light switches were missing hardware.
On the positive side, a very short walk to Lulu's Way will bring you to one of the best beaches on Block Island. The deck was sunny and inviting with a pleasant breeze and the ever-present scent of honeysuckle and ragusa rose.
Eileen was very helpful and promptly answered questions we posed.
If you want a no-frills, secluded, homey place to stay, with access to a long sandy beach, give this cottage a try."

"We enjoyed a wonderful week at this lovely home. We had a party of eight and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is great. The house is very comfortable and fully equipped. The sleeping arrangements are more than adequate for a group of eight. There is a nice view of the ocean from the back patio where we spent much time relaxing and enjoying the sunset. The property is secluded and very quiet. It is a short walk to a nice beach, and the South light house is a short drive away. A perect vacation spot!"
