Recent Bonnet Shores reviews

  • Perfect for the Family

    "We have been renting for the last few years and my family loves it! It's a perfect location, close to the beach, fishing, and water views. This house is immaculate and great for our family of 4. We have had other family and friends over and the kids love playing in the yard and upstairs. The owners were very helpful with all of our questions and needs and very easy to work with. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area. You get more bang for your buck! We are already booked for next summer!!"

  • A great place to rent!!

    "This house is a wonderful value in the Bonnet Shores area. The owners are exceptionally nice and approachable if you have any questions. I plan to return next year, and would recommend their house to friends, family, and readers alike! The Bonnet Shores location has been a family favorite for many years. The Matunuck Oyster Bar, Brickley's Ice Cream, and Ocean Mist (for breakfast and evening live entertainment in East Matunuck) are nearby."

  • Family Vacation

    "Just as the photos show, this is a very spacious, clean and well equipped home. The neighborhood is great for kids. Our 4 year old made lots of friends and enjoyed riding his bike on the quiet dead end street. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could ever need. Narragansett Town Beach is a very clean and beautiful beach. The beach passes that are included with the house is huge plus. Overall we are very happy with our stay and would definitely stay again!"

  • Charming and convenient!

    "My husband, 2.5 yr old and I rented this charming cabin for a few weeks in June/July 2014. We could not have asked for a more charming, easy and conveniently located space. The Bonnet Shores Cabin is clean, well appointed and in a very quiet neighborhood close to the beach. Traveling with little ones is never easy - but, I have to say having the cabin made it much easier. My husband was able to work while my child and I played in the beautiful yard (filled with bunnies) or in what he called the "toy loft." What a treat for a little one! I was also able to relax. Moms almost never get a break, even on vacation. However, the convenience of having our own space, with a kitchen and laundry, and a source of sesame street (when required) made my life easy. Simple pleasures! I would highly recommend this rental to a couple or a small family like mine. It is a very cozy and relaxing space. Sitting in the yard at night was a romantic treat. This cabin is in walking distance to the beach which is always a plus. There is an adorable market on Boston Neck that you may get to by bike, feet or car. Narragansett pier area is approx. 5 miles south down Boston Neck. There you will find great casual restaurants like Monahan's Clam Shack, and finer dining options such as Turtle Soup, Trios and Basil's. The Picnic Basket is a great spot for sandwiches. Along the way are various spots for ice-cream (Brickley's), coffee, gas, manis/pedis, and even kayak rental. You can bike/walk to Narragansett Pier. And as a side bar - driving to Providence, Newport or Mystic is EASY from Bonnet Shores. The owners were kind and helpful. This was a peaceful and relaxing trip in spite of a small child. Again, we highly recommend this cabin and we will be back!"
