Alexis Finlay purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Alexis Finlay chose Newport East
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 .

A True Gem in Newport
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.
I am very happy that you had a good stay. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
Fantastic long weekend retreat
This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this spacious clean and quiet home within walkng distance to 2nd beach. Six of us stayed here for a long weekend in the fall and had a wonderful time exploring Newport/Middletown as well as relaxing back at the house. We cooked dinner and breakfast one day and used the house to escape rain one day as well has for games at night. The lookout deck upstairs was a great area for sunrise/breakfast and for relaxing at sunset. Couples had thier own areas to escape to as well as comfortable and spacious living spaces. The living spaces all had great windows for natural light. We loved falling asleep listening to the distant waves crashing on Second beach with no road noise.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay and I hope you return.
Absolutely amazing. Everything you'd want!
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
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.
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.
Thank you for your very kind review! It makes me very happy to know that you enjoyed our vacation spot. Its true! I do take pride in making it as perfect as possible!
