Comfortable, good location, nicely furnished

  • 4 of 5

Lovely old house that has been tastefully renovated and is very comfortable. A 2 minute walk down to the bay and a 10-15 minute walk to town (just over a mile) either along the water or through the very cute neighborhood. Great kitchen with new appliances, dishes and pots and pans. This is not one of those places where the owner used all his old crummy stuff to furnish the rental. We really enjoyed staying here. Great bathrooms with nice new towels. John is very helpful and responsive. Our only suggestion is to add handrails on both sets of outside steps. We would definitely stay here again.

We recently visited our home state, Connecticut, and rented this lovely gem in Newport for two weeks. It was perfect. The location is great, lovely sunsets, the house impeccable and so comfortable. We enjoyed entertaining our friends and family without a doubt. The house is well appointed. If you would like to stay in an historic neighborhood, friendly, this is your place. Easy to get to the action!! John couldn't have been more helpful.

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house that we would absolutely recommend. We stayed there with our one year-old daughter. With a one year-old it was important to find a house that we felt comfortable spending significant time in at night. Although it still had a vacation house vibe to it, this definitely also had that home-like feel to it as well. Recently renovated with a lot of character. I can't stress enough how clean John's place was. I can honestly say that of all my stays in rentals and hotels, this was probably the first time I felt 100% fine about the cleanliness. We honestly could have moved right in. It's located in the historic Point section. It's a doable walk to downtown (about 10+ minutes on a scenic walk along the water). The neighborhood is quiet and residential and has a very authentic old New England feel. It's only a block and a half to the north end of the harbor, if you want to sit by the water and relax/read, etc. There's a small/mid-size waterfront park nearby that is very relaxing. Parking is very easy. The house is very airy and comfortable. John's easy to work with - very easy going and helpful. Great house that worked out perfectly for us.

Wonderful house!

This house was beautiful. Everything you need is there. Patio area in the back was a prefect place to relax. John was easy to deal with , we had no issues at all. We will definitely be back.

Great Newport Home

Spent the weekend with friends in this newly renovated home. We loved the steam shower and spacious kitchen. The owner was friendly and helpful. We plan to rent this home next year.

We really enjoyed our stay in Newport. The house was very conveniently located. A short stroll from the ocean and short driving distance to all the attractions. The house is newly renovated - and was beautifully done! Beds are very comfortable. Only possible drawback is that the kitchen isn't well stocked with pans/cooking utensils. But there are so many excellent restaurants, you will want to go out to eat anyway!
