About Asa Davis

I'm from Rhode Island, and while growing up spent as much time on the water as possible! My interests include scuba diving, boating, windsurfing, sailing, and fishing - if it involves the ocean, I probably like it.

Why Asa Davis chose Saunderstown

We purchased this property in 1999. We were looking for property on Narragansett Bay with a beach and boat dock for family vacations where we could enjoy privacy, peace and quiet. This fit the bill perfectly!

What makes this house unique

The beach and water access first, spectacular views, the large lawn and shaded areas just back from the beach, the protected location, strong, sturdy construction with fine details, and plenty of space for the family and activities both inside and out!

Perfect location for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better experience at this delightful property and will definitely be returning.

The house is wonderfully clean and well-appointed (without being 'stuffy' or 'fragile') and has everything you need for hosting large groups for a get away on the Rhode Island shore, from lobster pots to beach towels to kayaks to board games. The views from the dock are extraordinary and we enjoyed evening bonfires by the shore.

We were there with five children all under the age of six and they had an amazing time playing by the water, scooping shells, running races on the large yard, and going for walks around the beautiful property.

The location is perfect: it's a very private spot at the end of a quiet side road but still quite near Jamestown, Wickford, and Newport.

Asa was extremely communicative and generous with his time and even helped us arrange grocery delivery. He allowed us to tour the property before we finalized the booking, which was quite helpful. All the billing and paperwork was extremely organized. Thank you Asa for a great time!

Amazing Property for a Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay for our wedding weekend. We could not imagine a more beautiful and relaxed way to celebrate. The beautifully well maintained yard and expansive views set the most ideal venue for a wedding. Asa was easily accessible and answered any concerns or questions we had prior to and during the event. An amazing home and an amazing host, thank you for sharing with us.

Relaxing Vacation Home For Family With Dogs

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a vacation home and this was amazing! The property is private and very well cared for. This was wonderful addition for us who love the private walks with our dogs and not have to worry about cars. Long private driveway- wonderful!

The house has a great open concept that keeps the whole family together. Whether someone is hanging out in the dining room, cooking in the kitchen, laying down on the sofa adds to the coziness of the house. Very clean home, extremely comfortable and the views are relaxing! A well maintained house. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and decorated that was fitting for a house on the beach.

The backyard is perfect for running around, playing games, taking family photos. Asa made sure that the house has so many outdoor activities, he thought of everything! Our son got to go fishing off the dock for the first time!

Asa was very kind when I emailed him many questions about our upcoming stay and was very quick to respond back to me. We will definitely be back to visit this beautiful home!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for out-of-town guests coming in for a surprise birthday party. These guests (from around the country and abroad, and who live in some beautiful areas themselves) could not have been more appreciative of being put up in an A+ place -- it was such a treat for them to stay in one of the most beautiful spots on the entire Narragansett Bay. The property could not have a better set-up: incredible wooded area, the house in a secluded spot right on the water, with Jamestown, Dutch Island and Newport Bridge in view. Wonderful patio and dock spaces and private beach for easy access to the water. And Asa, the host, could not have been more responsive and helpful -- as an example, the coffee maker was not working, and Asa came over promptly and replaced it with a brand new one! Our stay could not have been better!

Lovely property, prime location

  • 5 of 5

Asa was there to meet us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the house and grounds, both meticulously maintained. The first floor is open and provides plenty of room for cooking, dining and lounging, even for a larger group than ours. The large property, private beach and dock afford privacy and an amazing view. My husband, son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay--wish we could have had a few more days!
