Great home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this house and were very impressed! Not only was Gerard a terrific host, but the home was perfect. There was plenty of room for the 8 of us...the house was clean and bedrooms were a good size. It is in a great location with an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants. Our favorite part was the rooftop deck. We were lucky enough to be there for the 4th of July so enjoyed the fireworks and some cocktails from the roof! Thank you Gerard for all the "check-ins" and making sure our stay was perfect!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is conveniently located next to restaurants, shops and the water! We stayed with 4 couples and there was so much space. There were great amenities provided and excellent communication. We accidentally blew a fuse in one of the rooms and they had maintenance come that day to fix it. There's an amazing roof top with beautiful views and a second balcony below it. On the first floor there's the kitchen, dinning room, half bath and living room. Two bedrooms and one bathroom on the second floor, then 2 bedrooms and another bathroom on the third floor with doors to outside. Lovely place!

Next time I'm in Newport, I'll be staying there again...if it's available!

Many thanks!

Excellent location, tons of space, awesome roof deck!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved this rental! The roof deck views are amazing, there are 4 comfortable bedrooms, and the quiet, peaceful location is fantastic! The on-site parking was a great perk and you can get to downtown and beaches so easily. A beach blanket and beach towels were provided, which we appreciated as we were traveling by plane and did not pack beach accessories. The owner was wonderful to work with and responded to all our questions within minutes. We would recommend this rental without hesitation and cannot wait to return next year!
