Our property is 0 feet from the ocean :-) Expansive and unobstructed views of Block Island, Block Island Sound, Point Judith Harbor of Refuge and the Rhode Island coast from south Narragansett all the way to Watch Hill. The view is always wonderful with the moving weather systems, ever changing surf and dramatic sunsets. It is also very active with boats sailing through and anchored in the Refuge, distant tankers passing by, fishing and lobster boats going about their business and the ever dependable back and forth of the Block Island Ferries. The Breakwater Village private beach is steps away. Two state beaches are 3 minutes by car and Narragansett Town Beach is less than 10.
Breakwater Village is a very quaint, out of the way, private community that can be very social and family friendly. And we are on a dead end street so no car traffic other than the 8 or so houses on our street.
The cottage is our happy place. Simply magical. It is vintage and precious. It is built with 100+ year old wood from an old Point Judith ship. In keeping with the historical and maritime feel, we have renovated with beautiful 100+ year old long leaf pine planking (on walls and floors) and vintage farmhouse sinks all salvaged from an old ranch in Texas. We believe we have preserved the feeling of being on board a ship.
This is our 5th year renting the cottage. We are excited to share our special place with others. But we are a bit picky. We are looking for couples or small families with a maximum of 5 people staying overnight including children. Two adults and up to 3 children is perfect. Three adults and two children also works very well. The cottage is too small for more than three adults. No smoking and no pets (Breakwater Village does not allow renters to bring pets).
We only rent weekly in the high summer season (7 nights minimum) From Saturday to Saturday (3:00 PM Check-in and 11:00 AM Checkout). We allow other than weekly in May, June, September and October. During those months we will have a 3 night minimum stay. We keep the calendar up to date.
Why Saturday to Saturday? Saturday to Saturday weekly rentals are standard in the area. Saturday to Saturday gives you most of two weekends (rather than only one weekend) since you can spend much of two Saturdays at the beach.
The 2018 rates are the same as 2017. Please see the rates page for 2018 rates.
I also require a refundable damage deposit. I am happy to say that we have yet to keep a single dollar of any security deposit. We have been fortunate to have excellent renters.
This cottage is owned by the Bradley family. It is our happy place and we are pleased to share it with others while we are away.
BTW, we do not advertise on Craigs list. Apparently a thief has scraped our homeaway site and put it on criags list to scam people. We only rent here.
