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 Easton's Point

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!

Beyond expectations..

  • 5 of 5

Bass Rocks is gorgeous, beautifully appointed and spacious. Middletown is an old friend as I lived there in my twenties. I returned in my fifties with a friend and had several one night guests and we all raved about the location, the jacuzzi and pool and awesome location to second beach. The cliffs of purgatory chasm are a stones throw from the property and it’s a great walking/biking neighborhood with lovely water views. The place was spotless and the owner puts together a lovely gift bag with local

Yummies! You won’t regret renting Bass Rocks. Thanks Alexis!

Top Deck carriage house - lovely views

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming and quiet location close to downtown Newport. The views from the top deck are lovely as are the backyard grounds. I grew up in the area and really enjoyed the visit and the location. We are a family of four (2 teens) and the accommodations were comfortable. Our visit was in June (hottest day was 82). With that said, the upstairs loft/bedroom area may get hot in later summer months. We had the air on in that room and it was still rather warm. One disappointment was the cleanliness of the carriage house. The kitchen floor had apparent dirt stains, dirty mops were leaning against the family room wall, the master bedding had a stain on the coverlet and debris on two of the pillows. Once you have arrived it is a great inconvenience to have a cleaner come back in. It should be ready for your arrival. We enjoyed our stay and hope that they consider a new cleaning service.

Owner's Response: I am very perplexed. My method is to have a regular cleaner ( who can do weekends) , a deep cleaner who can only do weekdays, and an inspector (property manager) who ensures that all is in order immediately before rental. The deep cleaner had been there on 6/12. The property manager has it in her notes that she checked that unit and that she remembers meeting you when you came early. She says that she could not possibly have missed a mop or a stain on a bed cover. I do appreciate any negative comments made directly as we remedy issues immediately.

Second year delivers

  • 5 of 5

We returned for our second year and were not disappointed. It is a beautiful place, very tranquil and private.

Adjacent to the surfers' beach, it is an easy walk for my adult children. We also take the opportunity to sail in Newport Harbor.

Alexis is very helpful when questions arise.

We look forward to our next visit.

A True Gem in Newport

  • 5 of 5

This Loft was a pleasant surprise. We stayed here the first week of October, and the home was clean and well maintained. Alexis was a great host, providing a beach bag of goodies when we checked in. The location is one of the best in Newport, only a few minutes walk to Second Beach. We spent several hours in the pool and hot tub, and really enjoyed the view from the Widows Watch deck. Great deck for grilling, and very large family room for hanging out playing board games with family. We had a great stay and will be back again next summer.
