Property description

Nothing really compares to this bright spacious contemporary family vacation getaway or corporate retreat. This unique house, with ocean views from 7 rooms, is laid out like 2 separate apartments, so one can interact or have their privacy. It is a one family house, but each of its 2 levels has its own kitchen, living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, and deck. Thus making it a comfortable accommodation for families, au pair, in-laws or business associates. (Note: you must specify and arrange with owner in advance exactly who will be staying or visiting here and what the occasion is.)
There is a large yard within a stone-columned wrought iron fence - perfect for touch football and lawn games; volleyball net & some game equipment is provided, as is chalk (for drawing on the outdoor blacktop area) and a small sandbox. Plenty of parking is also available.
The house is located in the heart of Narragansett's North Pier Village area, one block from the historic Casino Towers & Coast Guard House on scenic Ocean Road. It is WALKING DISTANCE to: our library, surf shops, coffee, liquor store, shopping, ice cream, massage, surfing, tennis, playgrounds, dining out for breakfast, lunch or dinner (casual to 5-star), dancing, dance lessons, attorneys, dentist, police & fire/rescue departments, and a boat launch.
Events: the fabulous Quonset Air Show planes rehearse right here over Narragansett beach late afternoon the Friday before the show opens and you can watch it from here for free; a Fine Art Festival is held right across the street the last weekend every June; 4th of July has fireworks over the beach; Rhode Island Philharmonic plays a free concert at the beach one evening each July; every Friday in July there is live music in the gazebo on the village green (one block away from here); there's a annual Hot Air Balloon festival on URI campus; Blessing of the Fleet & 10K road race (that ends right here) the last weekend in July; various beach runs & triathlons all summer including the Frimman (a half Ironman here at our beach) every September.

August sometimes has movies on the beach; the Charlestown Seafood Festival; Washington County Fair; plus water & land activities for all ages all summer, see the Dunes Club at the north end of the beach & more.
Not up for all that activity? Our two spacious ocean-facing decks allow you to stay here and relax. Weber propane gas grill available for your use, and outdoor tables and chairs.
Ample closet space, full laundry room with washer & dryer plus outdoor clothesline, electric range & gas range, 2 refrigerators, 2 microwaves, 2 dishwashers, 2 garbage disposals, recycling & composting containers provided.

Location

  • A

    ferry to Block Island View on map

    Coice of large ferry boats to take you to Block Island for the day or longer. Also good restaurants in the same area, fishing docks - buy fresh lobsters from the boats or fresh fish from Champlin's (a great restaurant, eat fresh fish on the deck and watch the boats go by); good ice cream, too!

  • B

    Foxwoods Casino View on map

    Now the largest casino in the USA! Features MGM Grand theatre with top name artists performing. Wonderful restaurants, shops, and the largest museum of Native American history with life size wax figures based on real tribespeople. Something for everyone. Well lit free parking garages; express bus line to NYC.

Car: Not Necessary

Beaches, Beaches, Beaches & best food anywhere! Lots of other things to do, too; we keep an expandable file of things to do & sites to see. Matunuck Oyster Farm (& restaurant!) is a short drive down rte 1, past the Nathan Hale homestead. Both are open for tours. Go antiquing, quilting, see historical sites & art - like 6 million dollars of Tiffany stained glass in a local church and where Jackie Kennedy Onassis once lived - both within walking distance. Take the bay lighthouse boat tour or the local trolley history tour. Historic Newport is a 15 min drive across 2 beautiful bridges with breathtakng views! Come stay in late August/early September when harmless tiny bioluminesent jellyfish are visible at the North end of the beach where the Narrow River inlets to the ocean. Neat to see the water light up at night as you gently step along the shoreline or kayak a little farther out. Come when the moon Is full for gorgeous nights!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: This is our family home, not a "beach rental." Now that the grandchildren are grown, we enjoy having respectful people rent the house, creating memories as special as ours. It's such a great area. We have owned and maintained property for over 40 years and take pride in what we do. This house has also been a year-round Bed & Breakfast from time to time.

Why the Owner Chose Narragansett Pier, Narragansett, RI, USA:
It is perfect in every way for extended families, reunion of friends or business retreats. Two kitchens allow vegetarians and meat-eaters to cook their preferred separate ways yet eat together in the large dining room. Large yard for volleyball, badminton, croquet. Walk to everything. Plenty for children to do. LOTS of good restaurants! Surfing, swimming, sunbathing. Beautiful ocean views in all seasons. You'll love it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Police, fire, EMTs are only 2 blocks away. A great library, surf shop, top restaurants and the mile long beach. Ever get up early to see the sunrise over the ocean? Gorgeous! Full moon nights are breath-taking! A short drive from here is historic Westerly with one of the oldest carousels and Taylor Swift's house!
