"We had such a wonderful visit to RI and staying at this home was truly one of the brightest highlights! We found EVERYTHING we could possibly need there, including peace and quiet. A true home away from home kind of vacation! The owners were most helpful and responsive both before, during, and after our stay and made fast return of our deposit. The hosts also own the beautiful home behind this one but it was not occupied during our time there; we had the utmost privacy during our end of September stay and felt like we were the only ones in town.
Shelter Harbor is a peaceful place during all seasons and the dock is just a few minutes walk away. Shelter Harbor Inn & Restaurant is also within walking distance and is open 365 days a year, a real treat for those who want to stay close to home for a meal out or have an event there while hosting family at this nearby rental house. You will find a fully equipped kitchen at the home though so if you love to cook this is an optimal rental!
There are many wonderful adventures to be had for all within driving distance. Judith Point is just up Rte 1 where you can find fresh seafood and catch the ferry to Block Island. Historic Newport is about an hour's drive away over the beautiful bridges and offers shopping and day activities for everyone. ** If you head north of Rte 1 be sure to stop in on PATTICAKES on Kingstown Road in Wakefield for the best desserts of your life!!
You'll also find gas stations, restaurants and other conveniences like Stop & Shop grocery store and Walmart right down the road off Rte 1 (south of house) and popular public beaches/attractions like Watch Hill and Misquamicut Beach off Rte 1A past beautiful New England style stone walls and gorgeous beachfront houses. Downtown Providence, RI also offers day trips galore if you want to take the trip north into the state, and Leaf Peepers will be delighted with a drive through nearby CT via Waterford Rd or Rte 78.
Many thanks to the owners for considering all the details to make our stay truly comfortable! We will definitely stay there again on our next adventure to New England and would gladly welcome the hosts in our home! Good people and a good place :)"

"House is wonderful overall. Clean, heartily-constructed, very well-equipped overall with lots of nice touches like a basement stocked with beach gear, a wagon, and outdoor games. All the equipment is excellent, especially the large and clean propane grill. There was even a first aid kit stocked in the supply closet. We felt very comfortable with 7 adults and 2 babies and the layout of the house really utilizes the space optimally. We used the back deck for dining and lounging almost every day, and the outdoor furniture was clean and nice. The owners always responded to any questions very promptly. The location is very convenient to a small beach with nice sunsets and is generally quiet with minimal street traffic, which makes strolling locally very easy. Of note, the house is not close to any of the shops/restraunts of downtown Jamestown. It's a very easy drive to town but it's not walking distance (this was clear to us when we rented but we just wanted to reinforce that for clarity). Overall, we found our week here to be highly enjoyable and would recommend it to anyone!"

"Year 18 and counting! Over the years a friend and I (and some years, family) have rented at least 1 or 2 cottages in this three-cottage,ocean-front location with private beach. With 2 bedrooms and futon, other friends and family have easily been accommodated for a night or two.
The cottage/s have always been clean and stocked with cooking utensils, paper and cleaning supplies miscellaneous necessities - and cable and internet, too. With a local farm stand, terrific convenience market with great meat and deli, several restaurants/bars - we never have to leave Matunuck - our 1-week summer home. Sabrina and Jay have always been accommodating and even the dogs are invited!"
