Great location, plenty of room and perfect backyard.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a house instead of staying at a hotel. The house was clean and well kept. From the pictures you do not realize how big the house is. The kitchen had everything we needed. There was a small sitting room next to the kitchen with a large tv. The bedrooms were a good size, the upstairs bedroom was very large with a sliding door to a second floor deck that had a lounge chair and a table with chairs that seated 6. There was plenty of room for the whole family to spread out.

The backyard was a large flat area...good for any type of activity. There was a 4-person table outside and the best part of the house...the outside shower. This was the only shower we used all week. There are 2 full bathrooms which also had showers.

The location was perfect. You are half a block from Ocean Road and a 5-10 minute walk to the stores and beach. We brought our own bikes, though there were some available. The riding is mostly flat and there is plenty to see in a short distance. We found clamming and fishing (make a right on Ocean Rd.). If you go to the docks in Galilee you can get lobsters and crabs right from the boats. We went at 1pm and there were at least 3 boats selling the shellfish.

There are many beaches to go to (there are 2 good quality beach chairs available at the house). We went to East Matunuck because we had been there before (we are not big beach people) but Scarborough beach is much closer. We went to Narraganset beach in the evenings. I was surprised at how crowded the beach was at 5-7pm (Lots of surfers in wetsuits). The beach closed at 5 so there is no charge after that, otherwise it was $8 a person to walk onto the beach plus a parking lot charge.

Some of the restaurants that we really enjoyed were Turtle Soup, Crazy Burger and the Coast Guard House (all an easy walk of half mile or less). A little father was Trio and Coastal Crepes. We biked and drove to Aunt Carries for great ice cream (right onto Ocean Drive). There were a lot of fun golf courses all within a half hour. Probably our best meal was at Two Ten Oyster Bar. Great views and excellent food. Whalers Brewing Company is right down the road from the restaurant. This was a great location with good beer and a great area to hang out in.

The only thing I wish is that we had a full weekend at the house (check in/out Friday or Sunday) but none of the houses had this.

If I went back to Narraganset I would definitely stay at this house again.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded our expectations. Caroline was great to work with and so responsive. The house was bright, spacious and well-equipped with everything we needed from games to grill to books to boogie boards. The location worked for us as it was just minutes from the beach, eateries and just around the corner from Monahan's. Our 8 yr old soon just kept telling us how much he like the house, especially the upstairs area. It was a wonderful home away from home. We would definitely return!

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!
