Why Joe Volpe chose Narragansett Pier

Great space for large families or multiple couples as well as a quiet getaway for just a few. Centrally located in a quaint coastal neighborhood yet close to center of town, beaches, markets, and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Harbour Island is a quaint little oasis in Narragansett, close to it all yet off the beaten path. We include 4 beach passes to the Narragansett Town Beach. Private association beach and swim area just down the street. Incidentals such as beach chairs, beach/bath towels (sheets not included), lawn games etc. are included. We take care of all miscellaneous supplies such as laundry supplies, trash bags, paper towels etc. so you have more time to enjoy Narragansett.

Perfect Home for a Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home in Rhode Island was perfect! We have 5 couples who choose a different vacation spot for a week each year. This one was our favorite so far. The house is immaculate, beautifully decorated, and has plenty of room. The open kitchen was great for the cooking, and it had all the pots,utensils, etc. that you would need. We also had the downstairs apartment, which had its own BR, BR, kitchen and living area. Just perfect. The backyard was great-on 2 particularly hot days, we opted to sun in the backyard rather than go the beach. Nice big tree for shade, or sun for those of us tanning. Joe, the owner, was great to work with. Very personable, good communicator. As a matter of fact, one of the group is planning on coming back next year with her extended family. Would highly recommend this property without hesitancy.

Perfect Getaway in a Great Town!

Excellent choice for our party of five couples celebrating an anniversary.

  • 4 of 5

A house is a house is a house, but THIS house has a Pottery Barn personality with carefully thought out details, humor (clock on the wall set at 5;00 with a sign that says "It's five o'clock somewhere!"), and conveniences. We spent considerable time around the kitchen table playing games (rainy day and late nights) for entertainment. Also enjoyed the location location location with several members of our group riding their bikes to the Block Island ferry while the rest of us drove for a delightful day on Block Island. Also, we all enjoyed the Gilbert Stuart museum tour and a number of beaches, and lobster dinners. The house location was convenient to everything we wanted to do.

Pottery Barn House

This was a great house for us! It is spacious and there is plenty of space to spread out, inside and out. Joe was fabulous, checking in with us before and during the stay and understanding our last minute issues. We highly recommend it!!!

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks and had a party of 8. Two families - kids' ages 19, 17, 14 & 6 - and a dog. There was more than enough space! The 'in-law'-type setup downstairs was great for us and provided for privacy when needed particularly when all of us were getting ready in the morning or of course for sleeping! A couple things came up during our stay (minor) and Joe was very responsive and helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better host!

Great location - quick drive to Narragansett Town Beach or Scarborough Beach - we also spent time in Newport and Watch Hill. We've stayed in Narragansett in the past, but never knew about Harbour Island so it was a treat for us to learn about it and explore on our morning walks. We particularly loved PJ's Pub for dinner (best chicken milanese - perfect environment for families - large menu) and definitely Holy Cow in Charlestown for ice cream (closer try Brickley's or Swirls & Scoops) Oh and Gnarly Donut is a fun treat as well!

The house is clean, well stocked and comfortable. Wouldn't hesitate to rent again!

Thanks to Joe, Kait & Gracie - we had a great time!

Beautiful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this wonderful beach home. Was spacious, beautifully decorated and extremely well appointed with all the details taken care of. Our toddler twins loved playing in the backyard and enjoyed the picture book collection in the kids room. We have stayed in many vacation rentals at this price point and this was the nicest one yet with attention to detail throughout. The owners were very helpful and the location was an easy drive to the beach and everywhere we wanted to go. Would highly recommend!
