About the property

Spacious Loft 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

'Bass Rocks Upper Deck' is located in a large historic carriage house which has been remodeled for 3 apartments, with privacy in mind. It has one of the best locations in the Northeast. We are only 800 feet from Sachuest Beach, also known as Second Beach, featuring some of the best surfing on the East Coast. The more than a mile long beach is perfect for sun bathing and all kinds of fun in the sun including kayaking, fishing and boating. Newport with its fantastic shopping, night life and restaurants is only a five-minute drive or a short bike ride away.

This three-level apartment is private and unique. There are two bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a king bed with a private bathroom with shower and whirlpool tub. The other bedroom has a queen bed. There is also a second bathroom with shower. There is a loft with a convertible sofa which lays flat into a 48' x 73' bed. There is an additional small cot. The apartment features original hardwood floors, a beautiful kitchen with cherry cabinets and granite counter tops. The spiral stair goes up to an observation deck from which you can see breathtaking views of the ocean and Sachuest point. A deck off the living room allows wonderful outdoor grilling/dining. The apartment has a laundry room, cable, WiFi and off-street parking.

About Alexis Finlay

I am a new owner but will maintain the same management services and high standards. We aim to exceed your expectations. .

Alexis Finlay purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Alexis Finlay chose Middletown

Everything you could want is here. The ocean, the excitement of Newport. The changing of the seasons. just a five minute walk to the surf. Purgatory Chasm with its exciting rock formation is right next door.We love to bike around Newport and hike around Sachuest point and the Norman bird sanctuary. The events that take place here during the summer are too numerous to count - every kind of music festival you can imagine, film festival, tall ships festival, chowder cook-offs to name just a few. New ferry to Providence takes 45 minutes to explore fun restaurants and shopping.

What makes this apartment unique

This is the best location on the east coast. The beach is just a five minute walk away. Downtown Newport with its shopping, nightlife and fantastic restaurants is just a five minute drive or short bike ride away. So many things to see and do like biking around Newport and hiking around Sachuest point and the Norman bird sanctuary. Of course the beach is right here with all that it has to offer - basking in the sun, surfing in the waves, swimming in the cool water, sailing, windsurfing - you name it. The events that take place here during the summer are too numerous to count - every kind of music festival you can imagine, film festival, tall ships festival, chowder cook-offs to name just a few. Can't think of a better vacation spot in the northeast.

Spend the day at the beach, afternoons sightseeing or shopping, and nights at lively restaurants and clubs on the harbor front. The property is within walking distance to Cliff Walk, Newport’s Tennis Hall of Fame, and the Carosel at Easton's Beach . This home is one to three miles from Bellevue Avenue mansions and Yachting Center and four miles from Newport Country Club, Bailey’s Beach, New York Yacht Club, Ida Lewis Yacht Club and Sail Newport

Bass Rocks by the Sea is in a perfect location to be away from the hectic traffic yet close enough to Bellevue Avenue for mansions and shopping, America's Cup Avenue for wharf and yacht area, and nearby conveniences and many restaurants. Newport is known as 'America's First Summer Resort,' and is the home of The International Tennis Hall of Fame, Newport Preservation Society and Newport Mansions,

More than expected! Perfect in many ways!

  • 5 of 5

What a great surprise! Even though the pictures were well done, you don't capture the full effect until you arrive. First we received a lovely gift bag with wonderful treats that settled our hunger after traveling. So thoughtful. The kitchen was beautiful and well equipped with everything we needed to cook our favorite meals. The livingroom was huge and inviting. Multiple seating areas so no one felt on top of each other. Well decorated. Master bedroom was fabulous. I never sleep well when traveling but the bed was the most comfortable bed I've slept in. Seriously! The master bath was exquisite. The jacuzzi was just what I needed after hiking Cliff Walk and touring Newport Mansions. The views from the top deck are breathtaking! We sat sipping our coffee early in the morning and cocktails at night. Having 3 deck areas were ideal for all of us to have our own space when we wanted it. All have views of ocean and look out over the pool. The pool is the perfect size with jacuzzi at one end. There is plenty of space for you and other renters to share. The gardens are gorgeous. Met the lovely gardener beautifying the grounds. She was very sweet.

Overall, everything was perfect for us. The one beach is a very short walk down road and the other a 2 min drive.Everyone we met were quite friendly. It really was the perfect rental for us. Much better than the hotels in area and only 5 min drive to mansions! Can't wait to return! It feels like a home away from home!

Absolutely amazing. Everything you'd want!

  • 5 of 5

Alexis - it is clear that you go above and beyond to make your visitors happy!

I came with my wife and two other couples. Plenty of space. All the kitchen amenities you could think of. Very nice outdoor gas grill. Large deck. Upper level deck with great view and plenty of seating. Washer / dryer for clothes. High speed wifi. Several TV's with cable. Bikes. Beach within easy walking distance. Backyard with a pool, hot tub and a croquet set. Not sure you could hope for more.

Thanks for being a wonderful host. We certainly hope to be back!!

Very clean and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong renting this property. It is within walking distance of second beach. There are great views from both decks. It has a pool and hot tub. The living room is bright and airy. The bedrooms are very comfortable. The master has a king bed. The master bath has a jaquize tub and shower. The second bedroom has a queen and shares a bath with the loft bedroom. The owners provided linens and towels. There were also comfortable beach chairs. Our only complaint was that the beds in the loft are somewhat small for teenaged and grown children.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The Upper Deck at Bass Rocks was so enjoyable. It was clean and convenient. You are literally just around the corner from the beach. Don't bother bringing beach chairs , boogie boards of beach towels, you're covered. A quick drive to Newport to choose from great places to eat, drink and shop. There is a pride in ownership for this property and it shows. We would definitely stay again, and probably will.

Good Morning Alexis,

We truly enjoyed the peacefulness of the vacation property. We sailed each morning in Newport and then came back to walk to the beach. We used the pool and the bikes were a wonderful perk. We rode to third beach a few times.

Thank you very much.

Excellent

Second year staying at the complex. As always, everything was perfect. We will probably book again for next year. The only complaint is that we had to leave when our time was up. Alexis is the best.

Thanks for everything!
