Fantastic stay at the Pond House.

  • 5 of 5

So comfortable and clean. Fully stocked and organized kitchen, two new bathrooms and large washer and dryer. All the beds and bedrooms so cute and comfortable. Plenty of towels and sheets and bedding. Wonderful large table for dining and games and living room area is all you need. The huge porch and yard on the pond an extra bonus.. A very special home with absolutely everything you need for a great Rhode Island vacation

A perfect layout in a great location, with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We were three siblings with partners, adult children, and a baby. The house is a beautiful old space in great condition, with a roomy porch overlooking the pond and a sliver of the sea beyond. The four bedrooms and sunporch in the corner ensured that there was room for everybody, and the walls were thick enough that everyone had peace and privacy. We took turns in the double kayak, and walked the short distance to the beach every day. The setting was very quiet, because the house is off the main strip. On Saturday afternoon we had a family reunion of about 25 altogether, and there was plenty of space ad seating on the porch, so that the folding chairs I brought were never used. The kitchen has all that you need, even a small blender that made baby food. A wonderful space for people to gather in.

Spacious Pond House with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Thank goodness the weather for June couldn't have been more cooperative, but everyone who stayed here found the house spacious and well set up for a super fun week on the water.

We made chowder from clams farmed off the dock; we kayaked the pond in the double kayak; walked or rode to local beaches. If you have littles, the Wheeler Beach we found to be safe and welcoming.

I loved the way the house was organized and we felt comfortable cooking and dining there, either on the porch or at the dining table inside.

If we do this again, this is the property we'll request first!

Primo location/ Impeccable home.

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this home are attentive and friendly. There were plenty of towels and linens and a very well stocked kitchen.

The two full bathrooms were recently renovated and are gorgeous. The back yard and porch has ample room for family and friends to gather. The location is the best. Walking distance to beach, store and bars. The sunset is amazing. The neighbors seemed friendly and the area was upbeat, especially on the weekend. We will return!

Back Home to Rhode Island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in August. The home was even better than we expected as the owners updated it since the photos were posted. Location is fabulous--right on the water so we could take the kayaks out on the pond. The house was cool and breezy with plenty of space to socialize with friends and family—LOVED the large dinning room table, wrap-around porch with grill, and dock. Except for lack of a cheese grater, the kitchen was very well equipped. Plenty of towels for home and beach. We walked to the beach every day—there are 2 swimming beaches and 1 fishing beach within walking distance. Faboulous oyster restaruant and ice cream shoppe~ a 2.5 mile walk. Our Teenagers were never board!!!! Older folks found walking pleasant and do-able. Runners had plenty of beach and country roads. Owners are very professional and very nice too—we received our security deposit in a timely manner.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive feedback on our home. Along with upgrades to the house for next year (we plan on remodeling the upstairs bathroom) I will make sure to put a cheese grater in the kitchen. It was a pleasant first year experience for us as far as renting a property, and we truly will try to improve in the future. Regards, Dan Haskins

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our week stay was fabulous at this clean, well-maintained, spacious waterfront home. Yard was perfect for gameplaying, and watching the views on the saltpond. This house easily sleeps 10, not once did we ever feel crowded. Its is well equipped, we wanted for nothing. The saltpond was perfect for kayaking, fishing and clamming. The town beach we walked to daily was beautiful, and the taverns on the way back home were an added bonus!!! This is a beautiful home in a great beach community. We liked it so much, we have booked for two weeks next year. We are 7 adults with lots of vacation rental experiences and our opinion is such: This home is Five Star *****!!!!
