This open air, one bedroom apartment is on the second floor of a period two family home in the heart of Newport's Yachting Village. Our guests will enjoy our newly renovated kitchen with a counter and stools as the transition to the living room, which has a sliding glass door out to the small deck with 2 chairs. The deck faces south, so the sun warms and brightens the living room and kitchen area.

The location is key to the appreciation our guests have for the apartment. Walk to the foot of our street and you are on Historic Thames Street.

Cross Thames Street to walk down to the docks of Newport Harbor. Head to the left on Thames for shops and restaurants, the International Yacht Restoration School and King Park, a wonderful picnic spot right on the harbor, especially good for catching sunsets.

Turn right on Thames and within a 5 minute walk you are at Bowen's and Bannister's Wharfs, the center of Newport's shopping and dining district. Another 5 minute walk brings you into historic Washington Square, with the movie theater and more restaurants and shops.

* Walk east to Bellevue Avenue, Cliff Walk and Easton's Beach.

* Catch a sunset sail on one of several fine yacht cruises

* Rent a bike just down the street and tour Newport

* Walk just a few blocks to tour the Gilded Age Mansions

* Go next door to see The Samuel Whitehorn Museum

With miles of bountiful beaches and trails, centuries-old homes, historic landmarks, bustling waterfronts, year-round festivals and events, and hundreds of diverse shops and eateries, Newport has been called the gem of the New England coastline.

Newport was one of the largest cities and busiest seaports in all of Colonial America. Known as the cultural heart of the city, the Old Quarter includes 18th and 19th century buildings, a collection of Colonial homes and museums. Step from the Colonial era to the famed “summer cottages” of America’s Gilded Age, perched along famed Bellevue Avenue. More than a dozen of these palatial homes, many with extraordinary gardens and grounds, have been painstakingly preserved and many are open year round.

About Kristyn

We have lived in this house for 32 years, a two family house on a side street off Lower Thames Street. I am a book restorer and my wife, Kristyn, is a professional gardener. I am also a sailor with 30,000 offshore miles and Newport is a perfect place for us to indulge in all our interests.

Kristyn purchased this apartment in 1978

Why Kristyn chose Yachting Village

When we first moved in, Thames Street was boatyards and ship chandleries. Now it is shops and restaurants, marinas and nightclubs and though we are in the middle of it all, being on a side street allows us to enjoy a quiet not afforded on Thames Street. We can walk to virtually every restaurant in town, some a minute away, others 12. The launch to the Festivals, Goat Island and Jamestown is a four minute walk. Newport and all it has to offer is literally right on our doorstep.

Very comfortable and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a perfect size with everything you may need. The best part of the whole experience is the location. You do not need your car once you are there. All sights, restaurants are so close and easily walkable.

Kristyn is very easy to communicate with too.

Cozy apartment in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy one bedroom apartment in an old home on a historic street right off of Thames. We were able to walk everywhere, even the grocery store. For cooking, the owners have the kitchen stocked with whatever appliances you need. There is wifi and cable TV, plus a good selection of board games if you feel like staying in as opposed to heading out on Thames street. Would definitely recommend and stay here again ourselves.

We love staying in this property and the hosts are great! It is exactly like the pictures, always clean and very comfortable. The location is close to everything in downtown Newport, just park the car and walk.

Great location and nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice and clean. The apartment has everything you need for your stay just like you were in a condo. It was a mixture of updates and older homes but very well done. Kristyn and her husband were very nice and gave us some good information for the area. The apartment is in a great location and we could walk everywhere which is a good thing because parking was hard to come by. Thanks for the great time in Newport!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. Everything in walking distance. Glad we didn't rent a car! Even the weather cooperated to make it a picture-perfect weekend . Plenty of room in our one bedroom space with the kitchen well stocked to meet our needs. Clean and comfortable . Loved the air conditioning window unit in bedroom , the "white noise" made for an awesome night's sleep. Thank you!

great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a couple of nights in August and really enjoyed it. It was charming and cozy! We met the owners and they were very nice and welcoming. Parking can be tricky, but that's Newport.
