Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-9)

Island Getaway, Enjoy A Private Cottage and Narragansett Bay.

Located on the North End of Prudence Island near Desirable Potter's Cove. Enjoy summertime to it's fullest. Gas Grill and patio set for BBQ , large yard for children to play. Private Rocky beach where you can swim, snorkel, fish or dig for shellfish, also spend time looking for fossils and shells. Or take a walk to the North end park and view wild life. There is a Sandy Beach near by that you can access on foot or bring your vehicle. ( the walk is under 5 minutes and well worth it, especially if you are lucky enough to see a deer) There is Satellite Television (Direct TV), Coffee maker, Refrigerator, Stove and Microwave on the premises. Home is fully furnished, all Linens , towels and beach towels will be provided. This property is one house lot away from the beach. Not located directly on the water, however there are two great access points for the private rocky beach. We are located on the neck of the island and enjoy a comfortable summer cross breeze from both sides of the island. We have access to beaches on both sides. The home has a great enclosed outside shower for use after being on the beach all day. Most renters claim this to be one of the best parts of their stay! :)

Please Note* This truly is an island getaway. There are no restaurants, coffee shops or liquor stores on the island there is only one general store located at the Ferry dock. They only accept cash.

If you choose to go off the island there are shops, restaurants, and a liquor store located within walking distance of the Ferry in Bristol ( 30 min ride on the ferry)

Some of the pizza places, and local stores will deliver to the Ferry.

Rental week runs from Saturday afternoon (3:30 p.m. ferry) to the following Saturday morning (10:30 a.m. ferry) Access to the Island is by ferry or water taxi. Reservations need to be made in advance.

Excellent House - Clean and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The house was clean and well appointed. Nice high ceilings in communal room and pleasant furnishings. The owners left everything you could want--beach towels, tea/coffee, ample linens for beds, etc.... No direct water view, but we had meals and drinks on the breezy deck and enjoyed the well-kept yard. Rocky beach was just a couple of minutes across street. There is one queen bed in one bedroom, one twin in another bedroom, and the loft is large and has a queen-size bed with lots of floor room (to add a teenager or two!). Very accommodating owners -- we would stay here again. Thank you!

Great house and location for a relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family (5 of us) just came back from an extended weekend trip from Prudence Island and we really enjoyed our staying at this beautiful and comfortable beach house. It is has everything (beach floats, bikes, badminton set, hammock, DVDs, board games, grill, etc. ) we need for various fun and relaxing activities. We feel really at home. The host is very pleasant and helpful to work with. Definitely a place you want to go back again.

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I spent a week on Prudence late July 2010, & had the most wonderful time. I've rented many beach houses, & this is our favorite one so far.

The rocky beach is a quick little walk, but our favorite was the sandy beach (about 10 minute walk)

We went quahogging almost every day, & grilled them for supper at night.

My daughter loved the hammock, & our friends who came to visit all had a blast!

Thanks for a great vacation!
