Yearly Newport Vacation
We come to Newport every year. We were excited to stay so close to the beach this year and be able to bring our dogs.
While the house has great proximity to the beach, we were disappointed in the cleanliness of it. If we walked barefoot our feet would turn black, there was dirt, crumbs, etc. in the couches and under them.
We opened up a closet door in the bedroom and all the slots fell out. We tried to use the outdoor shower, it didn’t work. (Which this is something we were very excited about!) The listing states the property comes with cable, we only had 8-10 channels and none that were kid appropriate.
We have a toddler so dinner at home was something that we wanted to do, unfortunately the kitchen has the bare minimum, as well as the house. We couldn’t find an iron anywhere and had to go purchase one.
While Tracey was responsive, helpful and nice, I don’t think we would stay here next year, it was a great location but for the same or a little bit more money, we could get all of these amenities in the same location. This location is probably best for a quick trip to Newport, without planning on using the house much.
I have been renting my cottage for over ten years and have never received this criticism. The renter never mentioned that the outdoor shower was broken. As soon as I was made aware of the situation, I had it fixed.
I have a cleaning crew that cleans the house, including vacuuming and Swiffering the floors, as well as vacuuming and rolling the couches with a lint roller. If there were concerns about the cleaning, they should have been brought to my attention and I would have sent the cleaning people back over.
I used to have an ironing board and iron at the cottage, but wound up taking both back to my house because I thought that no one was using them and that they were taking up space. I would have been happy to bring them back over if requested.
The kitchen was pictured in the photos. I don't know what she was expecting.
I offer basic cable and have not had complaints. Most people spend there days out in the area and inside the house on their mobile devices.
The slats in the door were not broken when they entered the home. I sent over a handyman as soon as the damage was reported and he fixed it. I could have taken the cost of the repairs out of their damage deposit, but I did not.
I welcome any interested travelers to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Spacious and comfortable cottage in a great location!
We stayed at this cottage as a home base when running the Newport Half Marathon this past weekend, and couldn't have picked a better spot! The cottage is very spacious inside, with plenty of room for everyone. Everything you could possibly need is already there, and very well-cared for. The location was excellent- we were able to walk back and forth to the beach easily- even after our run. Tracey was responsive and helpful all along. We will be back, and highly recommend this property!!
Wonderful Location and Clean
The owner and the place get 5 stars because it was everything we expected. It was clean, well attended, dog friendly with a fenced in back yard, and a couple of blocks from the beach. While the house itself is not 5 star luxury everything was well maintained and the owner was quick to response via text with any questions we might have had. I would definitely stay here again!
