About Viviana

Owned by a Massachussetts couple (Gabriel & Viviana) with 3 kids. Viviana is an Architect and has designed and managed the 2 major renovations of the house, in 2004 and 2013/14. She likes to design spaces, combining 'old' and 'new' with perfect blends. High ceilings are a must and the house has them all around. She and her family live in Massachussetts and uses this house as weekend house and to gather friends and family.

Viviana purchased this house in 2004

Why Viviana chose Rhode Island

It is in the BEST location in Newport, with the convenience of having 4 parking spaces in downtown Newport (very rare), it has a fantastic view to the harbor and America's Cup Blvd. This is an antique bar from the 1790's converted into a summer vacation place. First renovation included the 'old bar' which has been preserved and 2nd was a large addition of 4 parking spaces, 5 bedrooms and bathrooms and an entertainment kitchen/living room with Ocean View

What makes this house unique

The property has great character, it has fabulous water views 2nd and 3rd floors. It has 4 parking spaces, which is unique in downtown Newport. It is loacated 20 yards walk to downtown shops and restaurants. The house is equipped with wireless Internet, Cable TV, Sonos wireless speakers and flat screen TV's - all seamlessly blended into this lovingly restored 18th century 'bar' on the bay.

Great for College Reunions

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples for our 35th College reunion in Providence RI. staying in Newport was a great way to mix the reunion and some site seeing. There is a great room with a large dining/kitchen area that fit every one!

The house is also right in the center of things so no need for the car.

Also wonderful view of the harbor from the deck on the floor of the great room!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

A group o 14 women got together for a 4-day college reunion. It was dreary and rainy, but the house was just perfect -- we hardly noticed the weather. Walking distance to the harbor, shop, restaurants, trolley tours. But the house was so lovely, the view so pretty, it was at times hard to leave! Beautifully designed, very clean. Gabriel and Viviana were very responsive -- wonderful to work with. We loved the large common room at the top of the house, and especially loved gathering around the huge table for meals. We were happy to have space for a few cars, as well, since we were coming from many locations. Loved having a bathroom with every bedroom. Stairs were not a challenge for us, but I don't think it would be good for small children or people with knee/hip problems. We get together every two years, always choosing a different city, but we loved this house so much, and there is so much still to see and do in Newport, we might return! Highly recommend.

Great Stay in Newport

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week in Newport! Your home is beautiful and the location couldn't be better, within easy walking distance to everything Newport has to offer. We wouldn't have traded being in the heart of the hustle and bustle for anything, but families with young children or light sleepers should know that there is a parking lot adjacent to the house and on the weekends it can get a little loud when revelers go home for the night. The house is great for groups, with every bedroom having its own bathroom, plus extra bathrooms in the living areas. The huge kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances, dishes, and cooking supplies we needed to cook any meal. And the sunset views from the deck can't be beat! Gabriel and Viviana were a joy to work with, very responsive and helpful at every turn. I would highly recommend this home and would rent it again in a heartbeat!

House for Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to tell you what an amazing weekend we had! Our family came to Newport for our son's graduation. Your house is beyond spectacular and our entire family (14) was able to enjoy our time together and enjoy Newport as well, but loved just hanging out in the house. The location couldn't be better-everything is in walking distance. Everything we could have needed was supplied which made our time there so easy. Every part of the house is fabulous and the views are incredible. The huge kitchen and table made for fun meals together and the Sonos sound system made for more fun! Only regretted not be able to use the amazing fireplace in the upstairs living area! With three floors and so many bedrooms and every room having a beautiful, full bathroom, allowed for everyone's privacy. We enjoyed celebrating in the huge bar after my sons graduation -- no one wanted to leave! I am already trying to figure out another event so we can return!!!! I hope you all are able to enjoy time there as well and thank you for the opportunity in making our stay so memorable. We highly recommend this house and would definitely stay again!

Newport Wedding-Memorial Day Weekend 2016

  • 5 of 5

Our friends had a wedding in Newport over Memorial Day Weekend. This house was perfect for the large group! The communal space in the house was great for catching up and hanging out. The top floor/kitchen area was great for a big group dinner when we weren't attending wedding events! Spectacular views, and in an ideal location right in town-easy to walk everywhere! Would absolutely rent this house again!

House for Newport Wedding weekend - June 2015

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful stay at Gabriel & Viviana's home! I got married in Newport in June and it was the perfect place for my wedding weekend in Newport. It was me and my 4 groomsmen (along with their spouses/significant others), and the set-up worked out great! The house is AMAZING- tons of space & great views, and the location couldn't be better. It definitely exceeded our expectations! The top floor has views of the water and a great outdoor deck, and it has a full kitchen & huge kitchen table that was very popular to congregate around. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, which made it really nice for all of the couples in the house. The house also has all the top-notch amenities and gadgets--a Sonos music player, huge flatscreen TV and all the main kitchen appliances. The house is located in the best part of Newport- walking distance to the marina and all of the great Newport restaurants and shops, but on a quiet street away from traffic. Gabriel and Viviana were really responsive, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this house to the VRBO community and would definitely stay here again!
