Recent Newport reviews
Great in every way!
"I'm a bit late with this review, as we stayed here for a week over a month ago, but I didn't want to miss the chance to say how great it was. The location is ideal, steps from the main drag in Newport, so walking distance to just about anywhere. The house itself is as described, a wonderful cottage-type residence that is furnished with everything you could possibly need, in the kitchen and throughout. The stairs are somewhat steep, so be aware if that might be a problem for you. If we return to Newport, we'd go back to this house in a second! Thanks, Chris!"

"Party of 7 adults came for sailing week, for 6 nights. Cant say any more great things about the property, or the owner. Rebecca made us feel welcome from the moment of arrival. She was happy to answer any questions we had about the area, take phone calls at any time, & gave us restaurant suggestions as well as what sights to see while in the area.
The property itself is very well maintained with an enormous patio out back. We spent many an evening grilling out, watching the sunset - private, quiet & relaxed - just what we needed after long days of sailing. The kitchen is STUNNING & large - I believe it was newly redone with all appliances & high end granite. All the rooms & bathrooms were meticulously clean. We had 3 couples , 1 in each of the upstairs bedrooms, & a single in the 4th main floor bedroom. There is a pull out couch available, but he used the Queen blow up mattress provided & was very comfortable. There are surprisingly 2 very large bathrooms, so we had no issues with space. Its a 5-7 minute walk to the beach, & easily accessible to quite a few restaurants. You could go to Ellery House for a week & never use your car!
I cant think of any complaints except maybe that there are window A/c's in each room, instead of central air. But at this time of year, we didn't need any air at all, with the ocean breeze!
We already have discussed booking a week again next year. Thank you Rebecca!"

"In Newport for Volvo Ocean Race. Great location close to Thames St, Cliff walk and Fort Adams. Parking outside door. Unit is cozy with single small bath. Decor somewhat dated and kitchen sparsely provided. Considering price, a good place to home base in Newport. After all, one doesn't come to Newport to hang out inside! Communication with owner was very good!"

"Our first trip to Newport-- could not have been better. We felt so fortunate to be able to open the front door every evening and call this place "home" during our stay. The beautiful decor and warm colors welcome you in and make it hard to leave. Newport has so much to offer, it was a delight to be able to explore it all on foot from this home's perfect location. Our favorite casual restaurant, Brick Alley, was just around the corner.
Helen is an absolutely delightful host! It is obvious to anyone who gets to stay here, that she takes great pride in maintaining her house and doing everything to make sure her guests feel welcome.
If you are thinking of visiting Newport, think no longer about where to stay-- it doesn't get better than this!"
