Perfect cottage and location for our weekend fishing trip
"Very comfortable and spacious open great room/kitchen/dining area. Lots of bedroom space with two full bathrooms. Nice backyard. Enclosed "mud room" between garage and house was a plus. Minor issue the first night. The owner was very reachable and immediately corrected the problem. Minutes from Charlestown downtown and restaurants. Beaches and jetties very close. Reasonable priced. Would rent again without hesitation."

Great house, owner excellent to deal with, beautiful sunsets, off beaten track
"We just returned from a week in Block Island. We LOVED this house. First the owner was EXCELLENT to deal with. Crystal responded quickly to all my email questions and went above and beyond in making some adjustments to make my 83 year old mother's stay more comfortable. We had vacationed in Block Island years ago and were so happy to return after a 30 year hiatus. Block Island is still as lovely as I remember. The house is located on the West Side of the Island. A good ways from town - so a car would be useful. It is walking distance to Dorie's Cove which we did almost every evening to see the spectacular sunsets. We did lots of great bike rides and walking right from the house. I liked that we were not in "town"; it was so quiet in the evenings and the night sky was beautiful. It was a nice 25 minute bike ride to Mohegan Bluffs as well as Fred Benson beach or town.
The house is EXTREMELY clean. I have rented several VRBO's and have not found a house more clean than this one. The house was also well stocked with teas, coffee, paper products, laundry and dish detergent, garbage bags, etc. One downside to house is you have to clean and bring your garbage to the transfer station. It wasn't a big deal for us - but could be for someone who is just looking to stay and leave without removing garbage and cleaning. The house was very well decorated and we felt quite at home. We also were grateful to be able to bring our dog with us. He loved sitting on the deck watching runners and cyclists go by. The house was great for my husband, me and my mom. (and dog loved it too! - if he wasn't looking out over deck he was looking out the lower level window in the bedroom) Over the weekend, my 20 something kids joined us and they had the whole downstairs which has twin beds and sleep sofa as well as sitting area with TV and full bath. We had a nice gas grill outside and picnic table. The house would be great for couples vacationing together as well as families/extended family. Three full baths - with the bath on the main level having walk in shower which was helpful for my mother who has trouble getting in and out of bathtub shower.
Would highly recommend this house - just don't pick the same week I want to rent!"

"Been using this property for years and it's been one of the best experiences in that area and I've had a few! Joe is the most accomodating owner in the area. The house fits 11 adults easily and comfortably with no waits on the bathrooms! There is no charge for cleaning, free laundry, linens/towels included, a beach pass, a grill that works, plenty of hang out space, central air and no smell of mold or must! These are just a few things I have come to appreciate at this property that are not included in others in this area."

"We were so very pleased with our Close Cottage rental! Our group of four adults loved the location on the water, the cleanliness and amenities available and the welcoming feel the minute you walk through the door! We enjoyed early morning coffee in the sunroom, touring the area during the day, and making dinners in the well equipped kitchen in the evening. The beds had lovely linens and we all slept well after being outside for most of the day. The location of the cottage was perfect. If you like beach walks, finding beach glass, eating lobster, visiting Cape Cod, visiting Newport, hiking woodland trails, browsing through antique shops, stopping at roadside stands, visiting wineries and relaxing by the sea then this is the place to be. A big thank you to the owners for their excellent suggestions and sharing their lovely cottage!"
