Why Joslin Leasca chose Matunuck
My husband and I love the community and the property. The property is in the midst of hundres of acres of conservation land. The land has been in our family for generations.
What makes this House unique
The house is peaceful, quiet. Walk to nearby farm and buy fresh eggs and homemade bread. Walk to beach, stop on the way and pick up a beach meal, have a lobster boil delivered to the house, go clamming at sunset. Just a beautiful house in a great setting.

8 Antique road
Each year extended family plans a vacation to a different locale. This year we chose to stay close to home and stayed at 8 Antique Road in Matunuck, Rhode Island. The house is a Cape style and provided plenty of room for 14 of us.
The house was a ten minute walk to the beach (one minute by car) and the beach (South Kingstown Town Beach) was fantastic.
8 Antique Road provided plenty of parking spaces for the families vehicles and the yard was large. The linens supplied were fine and dishes and utensils were adequate. This house is not fully air conditioned. There are four units (kitchen, 2 bedrooms upstairs, and basement). The kitchen unit was at its max and still struggled to keep the area cool. Two bedrooms did not have units and made sleeping difficult as the week was extremely hot and humid. The furniture near the backyard fire pit was old and needs to be replaced. Sitting on the wood furniture near the pit was at your own risk as the wood was rotted. There was a new picnic table near the barbeque. There was a great deal of poison ivy growing in and around a tree in the driveway and on a tree near the fire pit so that area had to be avoided. The owner was great and responded quickly to our need to have a slow drain in the shower cleaned out. They promised to take care of the poison ivy later in the season. I would definitely recommend this property if you are looking to vacation in Southern Rhode Island.
Thank you for your stay at our beach house. We have reviewed your comments very carefully and are delighted you were happy with the cleanliness of the home, the fresh cotton linens on every bed including extras for the two futons and the folding cot, the three full bathrooms with additional outdoor hot/cold shower, large beach towels, bath towels, hand towels, and facecloths for each guest, the spacious bedrooms, the gas grill and charcoal grill, the acre and 1/2 of manicured yard space, and the easy walk to a great ocean beach which is exactly two tenths of a mile from the front door. We hope you had a chance to enjoy the neighborhood organic farm, theatre by the sea, and other attractions within walking distance. As you so nicely mentioned, we are immediately responsive to any concerns such as a slow running drain. The outdoor furniture has been tightened up so that it is as sturdy as the new picnic table and the landscaper has already cleared the small patch of poison ivy around the tree. Additional air conditioners have been placed in the last two bedrooms. We are glad to hear that you recommend our beach house to vacationers who would like a quiet destination with lots of outdoor activities very near the ocean surrounded by hundreds of acres of conservation land in Southern Rhode Island! Thank you for your review.
So much fun!
What a fun beach house! Big bedrooms, clean fresh linens, plenty of towels for beach and showers, fresh new carpets. Kitchen is clean, appliances working well, each floor has plenty of air conditioning and we were there during a heat wave. Outdoor hot and private shower is so appreciated for little kids who need to shower sand and dirt off as well as rinsing bathing suits and gear. We brought our bikes with us and never got back in the car for the week. The beach is a 2 minute walk - (2 tenths of a mile) - with a wonderful tiny market that provides great beach sandwiches on the way. Enjoyed a show at Theatre by the Sea and great Bloody Mary's at Ocean Mist. Owners are nearby and immediately responsive to any needs. We recommend this rental to anyone who wants to relax in a quiet area, surrounded by conservation land, very close to the ocean. We have come annually and will be renting next year.
Oh, such a nice review! So glad you found things as advertised! Looking forward to hosting you in 2015 and 2016 and look forward to fun updates to the beach house and property each year!
Excellent beach house rental!
Excellent rental! Plenty to see and do for young and old. Beach is minutes away by foot, nearest two for older teens is about 10 minutes by car. Very safe area, yard is huge - largest we have seen - with an outdoor firepit, nice large picnic table and seating around firepit. Nicely landscaped. Linens are clean and fresh, some are older, but clean and fresh. Outdoor hot/cold shower worked great for our family. Owners leave on movie channel for rainy days which we had two of - and we enjoyed some quiet family movie afternoons which we don't get to do too much! Great rental for all.
So glad you had a great time! You had a rainy few days,, so we are glad you enjoyed movies, live theatre, the Ocean Mist with your 85 year old Mom!! Looking forward to hosting you again.
Love this beach house!
This is our fifth year renting this beach house and we have booked for next summer. We try to book our stay during the Run for Kerri event in July and as a family we participate in the run! The house is spacious, the linens are fresh and clean, there are plenty of towels for everyone. The yard is huge - over an acre, with a great firepit, nice large picnic table with umbrella, and well landscaped. The house is well maintained and very comfortable for our family of 14. with air conditioning on every floor. Everything is within a 5 minute walk and the beach is very close for family members of all ages. Kitchen is well stocked and appliances are clean and in good working order. Thank you for renting exactly what you advertise!
Thank you so much for your review. Glad to hear you enjoyed the new backyard furniture, firepit, walking trails, and the rustic nature of the beach house along with the award winning Theatre by the Sea, Ocean Mist, and the Martha Stewart recognized Matunuck Oyster Bar! We look forward to hosting you again next year.
A perfect rental house for our family!
This was our family's first time renting 8 Antique and we could not be more pleased with everything. The house was perfect and so comfortable for our children and eight grandchildren. With bedrooms and a bathroom on each floor we were well-spaced and the bedrooms are the biggest we've ever had in a rental. Having our linens and towels provided was a big help. And air conditioning, if needed, was great. The backyard is huge and we ate outside every night. Our beachgoers found it an easy walk to the beach, and our littlest ones loved going out the back of the property to Carpenter's Farm next door where they fed the little goats. The owners are so warm and friendly and available to answer questions. We were so happy with this rental and would certainly recommend it to others and in fact have booked already for next year!
Thank you so much for such a lovely review! We are delighted that you found the house comfortable and as advertised and that Carpenter's Farm and the Vanilla Bean provided lots of entertainment! We look forward to hosting you next summer!
Wonderful July 4th 2 week stay!
Excellent 2 weeks at the beach! House is exactly as advertised. Huge clean bedrooms - plenty of room for blow up mattresses for kids or overflow guests. We had 14 comfortably. So nice that paper towels, napkins, fresh linens, and towels provided. Extra linens provided for futons. The price was great - at $4000 per holiday week, less than one night in a cramped hotel room. Most hotels running around $500.00 per night in the area - this house is priced right. Fireworks an easy walk on the 3rd and the 4th! Theatre by the Sea right around the corner. Organic farm one yard away. Walked everywhere. Very responsive owner.
Thank you for this lovely review! Glad you had a wonderful time and were able to take advantage of the beautiful weather, beaches, and fireworks! Thanks for the tip about our rates, our guest home does offer many more amenities and space than a hotel room and at a great price! Thanks again for your wonderful post and for staying with us.
In the summer, spend the day on the beach - walk home! Historic Theatre by the Sea within one mile. Historic Ocean Mist Restaurant within 2 miles. Five miles from URI via Rt 110. Bypass Upper College Road completely and never wait in traffic to leave school!
