Awesome location! Everything you need for a great beach experience

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying here. The giant Catalpa tree gave the best shade and the ocean breeze helped keep us cool. The cottage had plenty of room and the washer and dryer were so helpful. Kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans and utensils. Air was very humid being so near the ocean so a/c was good addition. Would stay here again! Only issue was stickiness and musty here and there- really unavoidable near beaches.

Close walk to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was cute and very comfortable. It needs a little TLC, but all in all our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay. The people watching was fantastic, the shaded back deck very enjoyable on hot days, and the walk to the beach very close, so it was easy to get back and forth. Thank you for a great stay in RI.

Cute cottage, close to beach(walking distance)

  • 3 of 5

Could have been cleaner and before I booked a stay at this cottage I would make sure the mold issue has been taken care of.

I would have given a 5 ⭐️'S if not for those two issues.

Great location, quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The yellow cottage on the corner was a perfect spot for beach lovers and people watchers! A short walk through a cooling path took us to the sand, and sitting on the front deck where the huge catalpa tree kept us cool was the perfect spot to watch families coming and going to the beach.

The appliances all worked well, plenty of hot water for all four of us, and the portable AC in the bedroom kept us comfortable each night. Beds were comfy, plenty of closet and dresser space and well stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes, glassware, etc.

Although the cottage is small, we had plenty of room to be comfortable: dining, sleeping and watching the very clear TV.

We enjoyed our stay and found plenty of good places to eat, shop and explore close by.

Wonderful family time at the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Our family has rented Sue's house for 15 years. We have really enjoyed being able to walk to the beach, come home for lunch and to walk the mile down the beach to Gallilee. The deck on the back is always shady and very comfortable. The biking is great from the house and the boys were able to surf at 3 or 4 spots easily. There are public tennis courts nearby. Scarborough beach is about a mile away and Narragansett is about five miles. Beach access is free after five pm. The house is walking distance to many restaurants and excellent fresh seafood is available in Gallilee. 1 Stanton is a wonderful location to enjoy the beach!

quaint cottage close to beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week with our family, two parents and four young adults ranging in age from 15 to 20. The cottage is not big, but we were comfortable in the living room when we were just 'chilling'. The sleeping accommodations required we use the pull out couch.

The kitchen is tiny and can get quite warm but the stove/cooktop/microwave/fridge all work and allowed us to preparee breakfast/dinner on site. The back porch table was the only place large enough for the 6 of use to sit down for dinner and it's shaded by a wonderful tree so worked quite well for us - thankfully we had no rain. The table in the living room worked for 2 or 3 at breakfast, but would not hold all of us.

The internet worked well as did the LR TV. We made frequent use of the laundry facility, but we did have to take turns washing our dishes.

The closest beach is more suited to families with smaller kids (not many waves) but we tested out other beaches and found some of the more southern ones had 'big enough' waves for the older kids.

I liked being close enough to walk to the near beach for an early evening swim before bed, after most of the crowds had left the beach.

The cottage is on the corner of a pretty busy road, but we did not have any trouble with road noise after dark. There is also a lot of local foot traffic back/forth to the beach, all friendly.

The cottage is adequate but not elegant
