Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

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 Newport

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.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Newport for a quick weekend getaway and this rental was perfect. Absolutely great location - we walked to mostly everything. House is clean and there was even a pack n play to use for our daughter. There was a pass for parking and it was right in front of the house which is helpful as we had a lot of baby related items. Owners are sweet and no fuss at all to book!

We just returned from a wonderful stay in Newport and loved this apartment.

The owners are very nice and accommodating and the apartment is just lovely. We had everything we needed and at a fraction of the price for a Newport hotel. You can't go wrong booking this apartment and the location couldn't be any better to the downtown area. We parked our car and never took it out!.I would highly recommend this apartment.

clean, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Kristyn's home for several years for our annual visit to Newport. We have tried hotels and other apartments, but find this to be the perfect apartment. Unless we decide to drive to a beach, we can park our car and leave it there till it is time to go home; everything we need and want is walking distance. The house has everything we need, is clean and comfortable.

Thanks. Kristyn, for making it available.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this apartment! The location could not be more perfect. We walked everywhere, including to a large supermarket to buy groceries for our stay. Full sized appliances in a wonderfully. laid out kitchen, it was equipped with everything we needed. The pictures don't do the property justice, it was larger than it appeared online! We locked ourselves out on day one, but Kristyn's husband was so sweet, assuring us it wasnt a problem at all to let us back in. They were more than happy to help us with whatever we needed, yet were not intrusive in any way. We loved chatting with them from our balcony about their amazing backyard, which was so beautiful and calming. Also, the parking spot directly in front of the house is a HUGE bonus!! Thank you to the Woodlands for allowing us to enjoy Newport like a local!!

Great location and comfort

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a short visit to Newport. Great location. Great that it had parking pass - we parked our car and didn't need it for rest of our stay. Apartment is very comfortable, spacious, and well stocked. Definitely was much nicer and much cheaper than hotel alternatives right in Newport we looked at.

Jazz Festival and Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a romantic getaway. Great location for walks downtown and the waterfront. The ferry to the Newport Jazz Festival was a short walk from the front door. We found the apartment to be very comfortable and well equipped. We will be back for another visit.
