About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

'Four Winds' is a beautiful cedar-shingled house on a private road on high ground that gradually slopes down a grassy field to a secluded cove and Rhode Island Sound. The front of the house faces water with fenced in yard in rear. All rooms have a view of the water. The living room has a large picture window facing the water and a wood burning fireplace. The large eat-in kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher and also has a big picture window facing the water. The grass patio is enclosed by a stone wall and provides a beautiful view of the water as well as cool summer breezes and is an excellent place for evening drinks. A master bedroom with private bath is on the first floor with another large bedroom and two smaller ones located upstairs.

Walk a hundred feet down to the secluded cove and sun yourself on the beach, swim, snorkle, fish or bring your sunfish or kayak and explore the coastline. Bring your surf board and walk a hundred yards down the road to 'Town Property' where the surfers ride the swells, or just walk along the rocky coastline to see what the tide brought in that day.

The Town of Little Compton public beach a.k.a. South Shore is less than 2 miles down the road and has a sandy beach and bottom, life guards, parking, restrooms, and a vending cart. If the crowds get to be too much for you just walk down the beach to 'Goosewing' and enjoy the privacy.

Enjoy a meal at the Commons Lunch or take a tour of Sakonnet Vineyards and pick up a bottle of wine for dinner. A cookout on the beach is always a fun time especially after you've caught your own dinner off of Fishing Rock. Follow that with a driftwood fire and s'mores and the last of the wine.

Spectacular views and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here in September -- our second visit. The house is well-maintained, immaculate, and very comfortable. Every room has a spectacular view of the ocean which is only a few hundred steps away. We love relaxing on the patio watching the waves and walking on the rocky beaches. The nearby town of LC is beautiful and historic. Be sure to visit Evelyn's for good seafood, and The Commons Lunch for genuine RI johnnycakes. We hope to come back!

We stayed from Aug1-15 . The house was clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 9,mix adults and children. The very first thing you notice is the breath taking views of the cove and ocean beyond from every window. We all enjoyed walking down to the cove ,the kids loved looking for sea glass , small smooth stones and driftwood. The house's yard faced the cove, was great for relaxing in the late afternoon or early evening after a day at the town beach. The kids enjoyed the beach and yard as well . They liked kite flying and games of tag in the constant breeze we all enjoyed in the yard. The location was perfect too. Some of us went to Newport and others took the children to Battle Ship Cove on our rainy day. A trip later in the week to the Whaling Museum and lunch at the Sakonet Winery al fresco rounded out two beautiful weeks. I enjoyed having coffee every morning in the kitchen and watching the sun come up over the Atlantic in utter peace and quiet. The setting of the house is perfect, The Community of Little Compton is charming. If there is a draw back it this, although there is plenty of town beach space during the week if you plan to use the town beach on Saturday or Sunday arrive early.

Excellent View!

  • 5 of 5

The view totally makes this property! Every room that you might hang out in has a view of the ocean. If you are up early, there is a beautiful sunrise to welcome you to the day. We were in LC for a family reunion and there is plenty of space in the house to socialize with guests. My sister brought kayaks you could walk down to the water from our house. My husband swam there. We had a fire there on the beach with s'mores on one night. There are a few quirks like the saggy yellow-striped sofa and a shower door that needs some adjusting but given the other benefits, they are easy to overlook. We especially loved walking in the mornings, swimming at South Shore and going to Sakonnet Vineyards. The owner was always responsive. We'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property in July 2014, after first staying in August 2011. We found the place to be exactly as we remembered. The house is still roomy and immaculate, the sweeping lawn to the cove is still beautiful and well maintained, and the overall vibe is still relaxing and peaceful. We can't say enough about the place. We plan to return as often as we can.

Best view in Little Compton

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. We were looking for a totally relaxing week away from our city life and we found it! The house is clean and comfortable. And the beautiful view of Little Pond Cove gave us a wonderful sense of calm and serenity. One evening we saw an amazing moonrise over the cove. The only addition that would make this house absolutely perfect would be a screened-in porch! (There are flying insects a-plenty in the evenings.) Otherwise we would definitely go back!

Best vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented this house with two other couples for the last three years. The view of the ocean is amazing and all of the bedrooms have a view. The picture window in the living room and kitchen also have a beautiful view. All of the bedrooms are comfortable and the house was immaculately clean. We enjoy visiting sakonet vineyard and eating at the Common Lunch. We spend time in Newport and Block Island is a short ferry ride away. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone!
