Beautiful view, spacious living!

  • 5 of 5

Overall the property was more then we hoped for. We hosted 4 generations of family for our sons wedding and the property was large enough for shared cooking, meals, yard play and quiet spaces when needed. The property manager was extremely helpful on keeping ahead of the garbage and was available at need to assist if necessary. We will definitely be coming back!

Perfect house for a large family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in the Tiverton house (plus guest house) for my daughter's wedding in Bristol, RI. We had 12 adults and 2 children and it was perfect for us! It is spacious enough that we never got in each others' way and we were able to have several people in the large, open kitchen preparing meals together. We spent most of our time on the back porch and in the beautiful yard. We set up a volley ball net, played cornhole, wiffle ball, boccie ball, used the kayaks, had a couple of bonfires and just thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous weather. Plus everyone loved the outdoor shower. We all used it, even my 78 year old mother! I would highly recommend this house for a large gathering of family and friends.

Great stay in Tiverton RI

  • 5 of 5

We know from experience that it is very difficult to find good accommodations in or near Little Compton, RI where we have family reunions every year. This property was the best so far. Though a little far from Sakonnet Point where we gather every year it was spacious, has extensive grounds on the waterfront, quiet, very well equipped, clean and well maintained, and AIR CONDITIONED. This past week the temperatures on the east coast passed 100, It was great to come back from the beach to a very comfortable home. An added plus is the proximity to Evelyn's seafood restaurant which is great and has wonderful take out too. And the owner of the property is very helpful. I highly recommend it.

Beautiful place, perfect for large family

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation where 14 adult family members met in Rhode Island. We chose this rental for its location and the abilty to sleep 14 people comfortably - we were able to go for a day trip to either Plymouth Rock, Cape Cod, Boston, Salem, Newport, or Providence and then meet the end of the day at the house. We cooked every night - everyone took turns - the kitchen was large, well equipped, with enough dishes for all of us. We were lucky to have beautiful weather for the entire stay and spent lots of time outside. The kayaks were being used daily (how nice to kayak on the bay at sunset), the yard was large enough for frisbee and badminton and there was plenty seating inside and outside for everyone. We loved the hammock (it was very comfortable) and the ability to make a fire in the firepit. The owner was very helpful and always replied to inquiries immediately. The house was big enough for 14 people to have plenty of space. Wifi worked perfectly, there was a rule book, but there were few rules and they were easy to follow. Security deposit was returned quickly. Everyone had a great time and we hope to come back!

For a vacation with several generation or with multiple families! Nice location, owners very nice and easy to get in touch with. House is divided in two leave opportunities to separates adults from children or different families. Our kids loved having their own house. Beds are very confortable, open spaces! Perfect.

Great place for large gathering. We pretty much filled the 14 beds with family. It was great swimming at high tide, not so much otherwise but that was indicated in the listing. We kayaked and enjoyed being together is such a private serene setting. We tried Evelyn's restaurant (featured on Diners, Dives, and Drive-In - Guy Fierro) and enjoyed the food and outside dinning by the water. We went to the town beach at Little Compton and had Ice Crème at Grays (a must). Easy access to Providence and New Bedford (Whaling Museum). Can't beat this property, no negatives, love - love - love.
