Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in a fantastic location. A quiet neighborhood close to everything. The house was so unique and had plenty of room for everyone. Check in and out were a cinch. It's a wonderful place for anyone looking to spend some time in Newport.

Outstanding. Spotless. Charming.

  • 5 of 5

Just a wonderful spot in a great neighborhood just off of downtown Newport. Charming house and garden. Very responsive owner and real estate helper. The house was spotless when we checked in and wants for nothing. Would rent again and would recommend to anyone.

Gorgeous, Tastefully-Decorated Home in the Heart of the Point

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent nearly 3 months in this house with our three little children. We loved every day of our time there. The house is gorgeous, beautifully maintained, well equipped, and in a great location. The owner is incredibly helpful and kind, responding to any contingencies immediately and eager to assist. The neighborhood is lovely and very walkable, as well as being close to the naval base and to downtown. We really cannot say enough good things about it! This home made our time in Newport very special. We would go back in a heartbeat and maybe never leave. :)

August 2015 Monthlong Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (age 60+) had a wonderful vacation here. Home and location are spectacular. Being able to get to the shopping center, food store etc. a mile away out 3rd street made it very enjoyable. Photos don't do it justice, home is beautifully appointed throughout. Plenty of room for guests and many visitors including our 5 grandchildren. Owner Portia and Realtor Stephanie were a delight to work with. We loved the fact that there were two large living room spaces, very modern kitchen and appliances. We walked into town (.7 mile) easily right along Washington Avenue and the waterfront. Living spaces were large and white glove clean. As such we treated the home as if it were our own -- you will too. We hope to be there for many years to come.

What a home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five stayed at this home for a week in August, 2013. As you can see, the owner supplies lots of excellent photos and descriptions. I went in with the attitude that if it's half as good as it appears, then we'll have a great time. Well, honestly it's twice as good as it appears! The owners attention to detail and decorating are impressive. The house has all of the modern conveniences of today's contemporary homes yet still captures the charm of being located in an historic Newport neighborhood. The five of us had more than enough room to stretch out and my family loved being such a short walk from swimming in Narragansett Bay. The home is also within walking distance to Newport Harbor. We would absolutely stay here again and I fully recommend this "home away from home" to anyone vacationing in the Newport area.
