"My husband and I can't recommend this home enough. The home is exactly as it looks in the pictures and the owners are wonderful. "Come Hither" is well appointed and there is everything needed on hand; grill, kayaks, beautiful flowers and a great view of the boats coming into harbor. Narragansett's downtown area is a short drive or an easy bike ride away. While we loved watching the waves at Narragansett beach we liked returning to our home away from home to watch the activities on the salt pond even more. We hope to return next year."

"My family loved staying here for our Newport vacation. The house is beautiful, well-maintained, and had all we needed and more. Each bedroom is lovely and comfortable. The living/dining area is bright and spacious. The kitchen has all you need for cooking. The house is on a quiet, pretty street and has a cute backyard with a table and a grill. The location is amazing - just a short drive to everything, including beaches, Newport Mansions, Cliff Walk, shopping, and restaurants. The owner left a binder full of suggestions and tips for the house and for the area, which was extremely helpful. We would definitely love to go back and highly recommend it!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cozy, comfortable, and charming "polo barn"!
"A most welcoming, cozy, clean and bright cottage! We were surprised to find fresh fruit on the table, cereal on the counter along with coffee and tea. Also milk, coffee cream, juice, bagels, cream cheese and jam in fridge. The beds were so comfortable and the down comforters cozy and warm. Patio was a lovely place to sit and sip coffee and living room comfortable and pristine. Loved the welcome sign on the door with our names on it. Far better than staying in any hotel. Close to downtown, the ocean, restaurants, shopping, mansions, ocean drive and other sightseeing attractions. A great place to stay, thanks to Kathy and her husband. We will be back!"

"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."
