"We stayed for a week leading up to Newport Folk Fest and had an incredible time. The apartment was in a perfect location, we rode our bikes to the beach everyday and were within walking distance of all the shops, restaurants, etc on Thames. Michael was a phone call away whenever we needed anything or had questions. Will definitely be staying here again."

"Whitegate Cottage is a perfect example of why we love our VRBO vacations. Where else could you stay in a charming cottage with personal touches, get insider tips on best enjoying the destination and really feel like you are living like a local. (Oh, and be able to bring a beloved pet.) If you like chain restaurants, amusement parks and hotel amenities, this is NOT for you. But if you want to an active, natural getaway in an incredibly scenic spot, Whitegate Cottage would be ideal. We particularly liked waking up to birdsong, having coffee on the deck (always breezy!) and then setting out to explore the island by foot or bike. Vail Beach and Rodman's Hollow are near by and afford stunning views. The ship's ladder to the second floor may make this property unsuitable for some--but we found that climbing it was great exercise. The cottage also doesn't have a stove, but we successfully made pasta on the hot plate. And, at the end of the day, the outdoor shower was awesome!"

"This is an excellent rental that we will be coming back to. The property is like a little college dorm quad with 4 duel unit buildings, each with their own deck and outdoor shower, relatively private back yard, and a large front yard that's more of a common area between the buildings. Amenities were very good, especially having a washer dryer, which we used daily. Kitchen amenities were more than we expected (we wouldn't have dragged along so much of our own stuff). Grill was in good working order, place was nice, clean, and comfortable for a family of 5 with 3 children 10 and under. Very quiet location, quick daily hop to the beach and even better to drive home without having to change there and then just hop in the outdoor shower. Only a few blocks away from the main commercial area for the town, with the super market right there, but still felt like a very secluded and private spot. We will definitely be returning, perhaps with with extended family for a multi-unit rental next time. Very nice time and very responsive owners. Thanks!"

"We had a fabulous time at this house for two weeks. It has a huge and private back yard and has little or no traffic so is perfect for children and animals. The neighbors waved to us whenever we drove by and one brought over tomatoes when we were having dinner outside one night. The ceiling fans are a godsend in the hot weather making the house very pleasant. The kitchen is very well equipped to make everything from omelets to a clam bake. Pretty dishes and glassware make serving meals fun. The sheets were so smooth and soft I could not wait to go to bed at night. There are plenty of towels for the bathrooms and the beach.
The owners were so accommodating and agreeable, as were the managers. We hope to be back again and again."
