About the Property

Three bedrooms, 1 & 1/2 baths, close to everything, the pond, ocean, everything.

This charming cottage is in the popular East Beach Quonochontaug area. It is located on Hoxie Avenue which parallels East Beach Road. It has three bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 baths, large living room, eat in size kitchen with a large deck for summer dining. Set on a large lot with beautiful and fragrant plantings this cottage has private pond access with parking and private beach access with parking. The cottage is in the quiet Sunrise Acres Civic Beach Association which will ensure a peaceful vacation. The cottage will be sparkling clean on your arrival. The cottage has garbage pick-up for your convenience.

South County has a full schedule of summer and fall activities for both adults and children. There is something always to do. Block Island and Newport are huge draws for day trips. There are many golf courses only minutes from the cottage as well as public tennis courts.

This cottage is always fully rented for the season because it has excellent value, comfort, and in the heart of South County. This is your one stop location for summer fun.

Just a few rules: We are not rule people and at the same time want to preserve the house for all that will enjoy it for the entire rental season. This is a great deal for those people that can agree to:

1. No events, gatherings or get togethers.

2. No pets anywhere on the property, this would include visitors pets, no matter how brief the visit. Please advise any visitor that you may have.

3. This is a no smoking property, no smoking is permitted on any part of the property.

4. The house is being rented to a maximum of five (5) people.

5. Parking for a maximum of three to four cars, (depending on size) there is no parking on any part of the lawn. There is no parking on street per Association rules.

6. One car in the beach parking lot which is vigorously enforced.

7. No violation of Federal, State, or local ordinances including setting off fireworks anywhere on the property.

If you can't abide by these rules, please pass us by.

Activities: Swimming is the absolutely the best at East Beach and area salt water beaches. The body surfing is great as well as the walks up and down the beach. Private parking means come and go as you please. If it's a burger you want you can go over to the 'Blue Shutters' for all kinds of beach snacks. There are also many fresh water facilities very close by.

Wow! Misquamicut and Watch Hill a few miles away, Narragansett Beach (20 minutes) Block Island Ferry (20 minutes), Newport (30 minutes), Casinos (30-35 minutes), golf courses (everywhere). Providence with it's famous zoo is a short drive (30-35 minutes) as well as the Mall shopping in Warwick.

You can easily spend a day antiquing if that is your thing with the nearby flea market on Sundays. An overcast day you can drive to a number of nearby wineries and taste some of the best wines.

Bring a camera because there are many local roads that are declared 'scenic' and offer many opportunities for great photographs.

Restaurants and more: South County has the best restaurants that will please everyone! I love casual dining, nearby restaurants have Rhode Island Clam Chowder and Clam Fritter's. Family dining at Aunt Carries rules! For a more sophisticated dinner the Shelter Harbor Inn is lovely. Everybody raves about the Matunuck Oyster House, I finally went there, yup, it is really good. For the big splash, the 'Ocean House' in Watch Hill is the best,sitting on the veranda on a lazy Sunday afternoon cannot be equaled!!

The cottage has a good selection of summer reading. What is summer without romance, mystery and a little bit of drama! There are cards, board games, as well as some dvd's after a long day at the beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: I have had the benefit of vacationing at East Beach since I was four years old (a long time ago). I spent my summer life clamming, blueberry picking, walking barefoot and rolling in the waves. I'm addicted to the salt air and the changing color of the ocean.

Why the Owner Chose Charlestown, RI, USA:
My cottage is close to everything and yet it is in a very quiet and respectful community. It is central to the best areas of Rhode Island and Southeastern, CT. The cottage is perfect for a couple or couples/families that want a peaceful quiet location. Events, get togethers or parties are not permitted on the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage can fill three separate and distinct types of vacationers. For the beach people there are six miles of beach accessible from our parking lot. For the athletic there are golf courses, tennis courts, bicycling, and more in the area, as well as all the water sports. For the daytrippers you can go to Block Island, Newport, Mystic, Watch Hill, Misquamicut, Stonington Borough, Narragansett, Wickford and all the Casinos in less than one hour, many in a half hour or less. On a rainy day there are many movie theaters, and tourist attractions.
