The convenience of the Pier without the noise! Luxuriate in ocean views, ocean breezes, and peaceful surroundings. After a long day of sunning, surfing and swimming at the beach return to a cedar-shingled home to enjoy a refreshing outdoor shower, a quiet, spacious and private 1/2 acre yard for a barbecue on the 2nd-floor deck amidst the bird songs at twilight, catching glimpses at the ocean and occasional boats in the distance!

A one-minute walk, brings you to: the boat launch for easy paddle boarding, kayaking, or fishing; Monahan's Clam Shack, the famous and delicious RI seafood spot with ice cream, games for kids and a fire pit overlooking the ocean; and Narragansett's spectacular seawall which runs along the ocean. Jog, stroll or bike along the sea wall, reveling in the brilliant ocean at your side. The historic Narragansett Towers and seaside shops are an easy walk along the ocean as is the state-wide favorite, Crazy Burger. Discover ice cream shops, retail stores, the hugely popular Trio and Coast Guard restaurants and even Dunkin' Donuts! Enjoy an ice cream cone or latte while walking along the beach or sea wall to the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Gather the family and walk to the free outdoor movies on the Beach, or pack a picnic for the many concerts, fairs and art shows. Miniature golf and bumper boats are a 3-minute drive and barely 10 minutes away is Galilee where you can wander the fishing docks, buy the freshest possible seafood or hop the ferry to Block Island for a wonderful day trip. Summer event highlights include the South County Hot Air Balloon Festival (Kingston, 15 min.), the bike path, trolley car rides in Naragansett, and, of course, your choice of spectacular beaches in every direction. Narragansett is just 15 minutes to Kingston Train Station with trains to NYC , Boston, Providence (and more). It is also the perfect location for exploring Newport (20 minutes over the spectacular Newport Bridge), one of New England's most famous destinations.

Keywords: walk to ocean, spacious private yard, outdoor shower, bright, close to everything, but quiet, large 2nd floor deck!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Since moving from CT to Texas 5 years ago, we love coming back east to the beach every year. I found this home for rent online at VRBO and loved the pictures and amenities it offered. When we arrived, we were blown away by what we found. This house is spectacular! Beautiful and spacious layout with plenty of room to spread out. The kids came in and decided they wanted to live here forever! There is everything here that you could possibly want in a beach home. Including the outdoor shower which everyone used all week. The owner Caroline is very sweet and wonderful to work with. We are already planning next year and plan to rent again.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautifully situated on a quiet street, yet it is minutes from everything. Our annual Sisters' Week was a great success as we enjoyed local restaurants and beaches. Morning walks along the Narragansett wall, coffee on the shady second-floor deck or sunning in the yard, there was something for everyone during our vacation. The house has a bright and roomy layout with plenty of room for all. Just great!

Great location for Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six had an awesome vacation at this beautiful Narragansett Beach home. Location is great -- just a short walk to the sea wall. Many great restaurants in the area - we enjoyed Coast Guard House, Trio, PJ's Pub & the Picnic Basket. House is spacious & layout is great. Enjoyed coffee on the downstairs patio each morning & Happy Hour on the upper deck in the afternoon. Emailed Caroline several times prior to our vacation & she always responded promptly. Narragansett Town beach is beautiful -- very clean & nice waves. Since I'm an early riser & love to walk, one morning I saw a spectacular sunrise over the water. Would definitely recommend this home & hope to go back sometime in the future.

Academic Year

  • 5 of 5

My roommates and I had a great time living in this beautiful house for the academic year. Having an ocean view, a huge backyard, and a completely furnished home was just a few of the great things that came along with staying in this house. The owners of the house are extremely accommodating, friendly, and are quick to answer when any questions or concerns were made mention. I would recommend this house for anyone looking for a quick getaway or a long term stay. My roommates and I definitely enjoyed our time spent here, and wish we could still enjoy the summer months. A must stay!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful relaxing vacation at this beautiful summer home. The location was fantastic, close to the beach and a variety of restaurants. The house was comfortable for all six adults with plenty of room. The owner was very cooperative and made sure that everything was just right. I would not hesitate to vacation here again!

Wonderful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family greatly enjoyed a week being so close to the beach, town and many restaurants. The house is so close to the Block Island ferry and in close proximity to the Newport Cliff Walk and many other Rhode Island attractions, including the beaches. The house bikes were great for exploring the town of Narragansett. We spent many evenings strolling along the Narragansett sea wall and sitting on the pier, simply taking in the view. It was a wonderful stay for our family!
