About Christopher Tunnah

I live in Brooklyn and have been a General Manager for several NY Times rated restaurants. This year I celebrated my 20th year in the industry, as well as branching out to work on my own as a Restaurant Management Consultant. In 2017 I will be opening a restaurant in Middletown and making the move to Newport for half the year!

Christopher Tunnah purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Christopher Tunnah chose Yachting Village

Newport is an amazing place. It has historical interest, beautiful architecture, and amazing restaurants. Unlike so many coastal destinations, Newport is a year-round destination and a living town. The beaches that ring the island are just the icing on the cake...Newport is a truly amazing destination!

What makes this cottage unique

The house has a fantastic location, many shops, bars and restaurants are within walking distance.

All the beaches are nearby, and make for a quick car trip, or a leisurely bike ride.

Finally, as the harbor is in front of the house, evenings are magical when up on the roof deck, sharing some drinks and a gorgeous sunset with friends!

Highly recommend this home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been visiting Newport for over 20 years and have rented dozens of different homes during that time.

Since we also have two small dogs finding a location that is suitable can't be a challenge.

This location worked out perfect in its location and proximity to the attractions restaurants and the waterfront.

The owner was incredibly responsive and worked with us through the entire process and we thank Chris for being such a great landlord.

Looking forward to planning my next trip there again soon.

Wonderful home and location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage on Goodwin was just lovely. The location was perfect just a few blocks from town. It's really nice to be in Newport and not have to worry about parking. We walked to town for shopping and boating and at night walked to the local restaurants. We were very happy with the stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes, pots and pans for cooking and entertaining at the home. Chris was very quick to respond to our inquires and quickly helped us with some minor questions. We will definitely rent this home again on our next trip to Newport. -Thanks Chris!

My wife and I stayed at this house for two weeks in July and August 2017. The location is fantastic with a short walk along the waterfront to the park for sunsets and in the opposite direction for the activity on Thames St. The street is very quiet despite its proximity to Thames. The house is old so it has its quirks but was very comfortable and welcoming. It is fully stocked with all the essentials, had good water pressure for showers and strong WiFi. We would certainly return.
