About Beth

We are native Rhode Islanders who love vacationing. We have been to many places, but our favorite and most memorable vacations are the weeks we have spent in our Bonnet Shores seaside home!

Beth purchased this house in 2004

Why Beth chose Bonnet Shores

We purchased 'Bayberry' in 2004 because we found it to be the perfect place for our family to enjoy summer vacations on the Rhode Island shore. We love the layout of this perfect for entertaining extended family and friends. We previously owned another property in Bonnet Shores, but fell in love with the location of this one because of its proximity to the beach.

What makes this house unique

'Bayberry' has many unique features. First, the bedrooms are large and can accommodate port-a-cribs and air mattresses with plenty of room to spare. The two living rooms make it really nice if you like to spread out, and the additional loft area with twin beds is nice for guests. The house is on a double lot (a rarity in this area) so there is plenty of parking for you and your guests. The enormous wraparound deck is great for relaxing outdoors with your morning coffee and newspaper, or unwinding after a beautiful day at the beach.

Excellent location and everything you need for a beach vacation

The layout and location to the private beach was great for our family. The home had everything you could need. The owner Beth was professional, friendly and easily accessible if we needed her. A total positive experience and we look forward to vacationing her again.

This property has everything you expect and more! It is extremely spacious and has beautiful decks with water views and amazing sunsets. The descriptions are accurate and the extra touches like the beach wagons, toys, and chairs made our stay extremely enjoyable. We were the last to leave the beach every night of our vacation!

Perfect rental. Great location and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting in Bonnet every July for 20 years, and am so lucky to have found such a great rental! The location was perfect, just a short walk to the beach, so family members could.come and go at their leisure. The layout of the house afforded lots of room to spread out and relax. The large deck was key for outdoor meals and the bedroom balconies were the perfect spot for a morning cup.of coffee or catch an evening breeze. The kitchen was well stocked and the linens and beach towels were a great plus. From top to bottom, all was so fresh and clean it felt like you really were in your own home. And the owner was top notch at speedy communication and answering every little question I came up with. Highly recommend a stay at this property to everyone.

Great Escape from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the time we spent at Bayberry. The house is perfect if you have a large family and all the comforts of home. Kelly beach is beautiful and clean, and just s short walk from the house. We will definitely keep this in mind for the future.

It's all that it's advertised to be!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Bonnet Shores.

The house was clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything you could ask for. As another person commented, it was great having 2 living spaces. We have teenagers so it was nice for them to have their own space. The deck was great for family dinners and just enjoying the outdoors. There are plenty of bath and beach towels so it was less to pack. Sheets are also provided.

We initially shuttled things down to the beach but quickly learned that it was so much easier to walk with the carts provided. The beach is beautiful and the water is warm! We cruised around to check out the town beaches and it made us appreciate the private beach even more (Kelly beach is not overcrowded).

We brought along our paddle boards and found a great spot to access the back side of the town beach. The younger kids loved being in the river and the sand bars we discovered.

The proximity to Newport was a plus. My husband and I brought out 10 year old one day to take a break from the sun. The teenagers visited multiple times.

We frequented Roch's Market to fill in the items we needed throughout the week.

The house is a great value for all it has to offer. It satisfied all ages. Beth was very responsive to all my questions in my quest to find the quintessential location for our family vacation.
