"My family and I stayed at Periscope in June. We needed a place that could accommodate an extended family group. The house was perfect. There was ample space to afford everyone privacy. Our group totaled eight, but there was room for more. It worked well for the children, the youngest being three, as well as the seniors in our group. There are three full bathrooms-one with a bathtub and two with showers. We never ran out of hot water and the pressure was great.
The house is well appointed with plenty of linens and kitchen equipment. We cooked and served meals for all of us and friends who were staying near by. There is a large BBQ if you want to cook out. There is a washer and dryer and clothes line, so you can pack lighter when you travel.
The house and grounds are lovely. The plantings are amazing and a wide variety of birds visit the feeders outside the kitchen window. Th large wrap around porch has room to eat out, sit and relax, or for the children to play. From the porch you have a sweeping view down to the water. There is a dock and we spent a considerable time enjoying that setting. Inside you will countless books to read, a large library of DVD's, games and toys.
If you need granite and stainless steel or want a place to throw wild parties, this place isn't for you. If you want a tranquil setting for a perfect seaside vacation, Periscope is perfect. The photos give a very accurate view of the house.
Periscope is the kind of house you see in pictures and movies and wonder what it would be like to live there.
On the practical side, the owners are very easy to work with. A cleaning crew came and polished up while we were staying there. The beaches were close by, the pizza man delivers, and we could find anything we needed in town. This property is perfect for lazy days or as a base to enjoy the beaches and numerous attractions in the area."

"My family has been vacationing in the Misquamicut/Westerly area for years, and this house has been the first we have continued to return to. If sitting on the beach all day isn't your thing (too bad – the beach access that comes with the house is the best on Rhode Island) there’s plenty of exploring to do in the Salt Pond (thanks to the generously provided kayaks), clamming, and visiting Newport or Watch Hill. It’s been so great for us; as our family gets bigger and friends come to visit this house has been so accommodating. If anyone wants to retire for the evening a bit earlier, there’s a beautiful new sun-room that allows the rest of house to remain undisturbed by those staying up later. The house is always clean and comfortable; it allows us to really catch up and spend rare quality time together. We have lots of memories around the large kitchen table!
Karin and Winter (the owners) are great to rent from. They are helpful and quick to respond to any correspondence. I cannot recommend this house enough and look forward to going back the whole year!"

"We stayed in early July and loved the property! The location is outstanding very close to the Narragansett Pier, Stop & Shop, and great restaurants. The unit itself was clean with comfortable furniture and great amenities including washing machine, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. The unit has great air conditioning which came in handy on the hot days. Overall I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great rental property and outstanding location in Narragansett."
