our third stay : )
"This was our third stay at Kathy's house. We have made this an annual trip and will continue to do so as long as she allows us to!! The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay including washer and dryer which comes in very handy when traveling. It is central to sights and downtown for dining and shopping. Every stay has been perfect and she always makes herself available for anything. The house is very clean and well maintained! We highly recommend this house for your stay in Newport. You will not be disappointed!! Thank you again Kathy for everything!!! : )"

"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 husband, myself and 2 teens stayed here last week, August 2014. The home is very practical, very close to Wheeler beach and has an extraordinary view off the back deck of the ocean. No a/c but with the windows open we had a lovely breeze. Outside shower was private and fantastic. The back deck provided plenty of space for dining with my extended family and everyone commented about the location and view. The kitchen had all the necessities and plenty of room for all we brought. The whole home was very clean-and I am very picky about these things. My family has done a week in Narragansett every summer since 2007 and I'd absolutely rent this home again! The home owners are very pleasant and easy to work with. My only suggestions to the owners would be to provide more photos of the bedrooms to show how roomy the place really is. I actually was delighted with the steps from the LR to both bedrooms and the privacy this provided. Also, I'd recommend providing sheets, blankets and beach towels for travelers. Otherwise, this little place is a gem! Thank you, J&L for a wonderful family week in your home!"

"A lovely home in a lovely setting. Extremely spacious, with a great room, den, sun deck, two large outdoor decks, and beach. We were a party of eight; there was room for everyone to be together or apart as the fancy took us. The house is beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. The beds are very comfortable, the showers great, and everything is fully stocked. We appreciated the fully accessible suite on the first floor. The setting is beautiful and tranquil, but we also enjoyed active swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. We hope to return soon!"
