About Paul & Trish Onofrio
We bought this property of 4 cottages and a two family house in 1997. It was very rundown. We lived on the property and did most of the renovations and landscaping ourselves with lots of help from friends and family. We now live in the next town but continue to be very 'hands-on'. We oversee the weekly turnovers to be sure the cottages are clean and well maintained. We are easily reached to solve any problems or answer questions for our guests.

Why Paul & Trish Onofrio chose Newport East
Trisha grew up in the Newport area and Paul grew up near the coast in Madison, Connecticut. Shortly after getting married, we were thrilled to find a 'fixer-upper' so close to the ocean. We take great pride in having created a unique vacation spot for so many of our returning renters and look forward to meeting new renters every year.
What makes this Cottage unique
Paul's gardens are what all our renters comment on and make our place special. When you walk through the gate, behind the hedge, the landscaping will charm you. Seashell paths, arbors, roses, hydrangeas, daisies, blueberry bushes and strawberries, covered decks, butterflies, birds and more create a serene and unforgettable place to relax and unwind.

Great family place!
We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The cottage was stocked with kitchen supplies and games and was a short walk to Easton's beach. We also drove to Second and Third beaches and spent time exploring them. It was a very quick drive into Newport and easy to find parking and great food. We would love to be able to return someday soon!
Beautiful gardens, great family vacation!
We were so happy with this rental - the lush, unique landscaping creates privacy and tranquility, yet it's within walking distance to restaurants and the beach. The area has so much to offer - beaches, hiking, shopping, restaurants, historic houses, farms - never a dull moment! The cottage was perfect for our small family of four - two adults and two young children. The outdoor shower and optional air conditioning were a plus. HIghly recommended!
Terrific Place in Newport
Great gardens surround this small, homey cottage. The owners were terrific and the neighborhood was great, with acess to the beach and lots of restaurants, including Flo's Clam Shack. We enjoyed it a lot and hope to return!
Perfect for walking, biking
We walked to the beach, just two blocks away. We walked to the Cliff Walk, which is stunning and is just past the beach. We rode our bikes to the heart of Newport, which is just past the Cliff Walk. It's all right there, and the route for walkers and bike riders is safe, easy, and wonderfully scenic. Several great places to eat are only blocks away as well (Flo's Clam Shack and TJ's among them; both casual and not pricey). The cottage is quaint and airy. The patio is private and beautifully kept. Paul and Trisha are warm and responsive. We rented their slightly larger cottage next door once, too, and enjoyed it just as well.
Adorable cottage in lovely garden setting. Clean and well maintained property. Close to beaches, restaurants, and shopping.
The best Summer rental!
My two daughters & I spent a great week in Newport! The weather was awesome but, the best part was the cottage we rented. It was like being in a quaint English-style cottage. So well kept & had everything you needed. It is set back from the road & secluded by hegdes & wild flowers. It is close to the beaches & near restaurants & only a couple of miles from downtown Newport. A great place to come alone or bring the whole family!
The cottages are located on a quiet side street tucked back behind a hedge. It is an easy walk to the beach of about two blocks. There are no fees to walk on to the beach. There are restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance. The downtown Newport waterfront is about 2 miles away where there is wonderful shopping, dining and nightlife. There is so much to do - Mansion tours, Fort Adams, Brenton State Park, Cliff Walk, harbor tours, day trips to a variety of quaint sea-side villages. Our guests love enjoying all the hustle and bustle of things to do in the Newport area but then being able to come back and enjoy the serene garden surroundings of our cottages.
