Kara Sullivan purchased this House in 2013
Why Kara Sullivan chose Bonnet Shores
Our family has been spending summers in Bonnet Shores for 40+ years, and we have been looking for the ideal 2nd home in the neighborhood for several years. We bought the house in January 2013 and put a tremendous amount of upgrades and improvements into the entire house.

This is the perfect walking or biking distance to Kelly Beach - 1/2 mile and mostly flat.

This was our first experience with Home Away and it was great from beginning to end. The house was exactly as described and in a perfect location for all we wanted to do. Close to four beaches and the Block Island ferry. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to easily make dinner for both families. The bottom floor was perfect for the boys and they loved the air hockey table.
The house was clean, well maintained, and comfortable. Kara was quick to respond to questions throughout the process!!
I would definitely recommend this property and would love to stay here again!!
Thanks Aindrea! Glad you had a great stay!
Very comfortable house, great location
Nicely upgraded from the last time we stayed here, new sofas, good quality beds, nicely decorated with a beachy decor.
Great stay and comfortable accommodations!
We were two families (6 kids ranging from 19 years- 12 months) staying here the second week of July. The home was clean upon arrival and we were able to get situated right away. I loved having the pack n play w/ extra mattress type cushion for my 12 month old as he slept great in it. The mattresses/pillows & blankets were all very comfortable and it was nice having a fan in each room to move the sea breezes around. We didn't have the best weather as it rained 3 days, but having a lower level was great in not feeling on top of one another. We grilled a couple nights and made use of the beach chairs. It was great being able to wash clothes and towels and also clean the floors so my baby could crawl around easily. Kara was always easily reachable and super accommodating! She answered every request we had and really went above and beyond! We loved the 1/2 mile walk to Kelly beach as the community is so beautiful we didn't mind being out and about. The beach is great! Very kid friendly but enough waves for the bigger kids too. The kitchen is a bit tight, but we made due just fine- after all your on vacation! This is a great home and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future. Location was perfect as you are just 30 mins to Newport and everything else is a 10 minute drive at most. Thanks again Kara and Gary!
Amazing week at the beach!
Our family had an amazing time at this perfect Bonnet Shores rental. The kids stayed downstairs and the adults all had their own bedroom upstairs. Two full bathrooms were clutch. Back patio and grill were put to great use. Just a short walk to Kelly Beach where the locals go. Such a pretty family beach. Ample room in front of the house for parking our 4 cars and beautiful hydrangeia bushes out front! Very pretty beachy modern decor inside - very tasteful. The perfect setting for our week long beach rental!
Relaxing summer getaway
We had two families travel to R.I. this summer for a combined family vacation. This house was perfect. We truly enjoyed our stay, as it was everything we were expecting. The location was within a 7-10 minute walk (with toddlers in strollers and hubby pushing beach carts) to the private Kelly Beach for swimming and lounging and the Long Beach from where you can see the bridge to Newport-beautiful views all around, even during the walks. So again, everything was relaxing.
The property was overall clean and very well maintained. Plus, cleaning supplies were provided to maintain the space while we stayed-which was so helpful to me. The owners were wonderful, very available for any of our questions.
I would highly recommend this property to a friend or relative, I might even return myself-though I am on a quest to visit all 50 states with my kids over the next number of years. But again, we had such a lovely time, I think we will have to return.
The house is also in a great location to visit other cities beyond Narragansett. It only took 30 minutes to get to Newport, which was definitely worth visiting. The wharf and the boat ride to Fort Adams was memorable. My husband and I really appreciated the fact that we were set apart from the bustling downtown, yet able to reach it within minutes by driving. We enjoyed the many good seafood restaurants, again with great views, throughout the island. The kids enjoyed playing a few different well painted parks, and the adults enjoyed the walks, the views and the food. A lovely trip!
Updated House near Beach
Great location/value and you can walk to Kelly Beach or Little Beach. The house is updated with four bedrooms and a deck. There is also a nice finished basement with a bathroom and bedroom with bunk beds and a third bed. Great area for kids. The house was clean and had a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. I highly recommend this house!
Our house is located in the Bonnet Shores Fire District where you can enjoy walks/runs/bike rides around the neighborhood and it is less than 1/2 mile walk to Kelly Beach (the public section of the Bonnet Shores Beach). Other enjoyable outings close to Bonnet Shores include day trips to Newport (13 miles), Block Island (12 miles to Galilee & a 55 min. ferry ride), Narrangansett (5.5 miles) or Foxwoods Casino (36.5 miles).
