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.

The property was just perfect. Great location, pleasant accommodations, nice outdoor space.
This property was just perfect for our long weekend get away near Newport with friends. Even though the pool and spa were closed for the season, the hammock and outdoor space was quite lovely. The indoor accommodations were nice, clean and comfortable. The goodie bag was a nice and welcomed touch. We would definately recommend this property and would stay here again. The owner was quite helpful as this was our first VRBO. Thank you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay in the Cottage.
Charming and perfect location!
We spend 3 days for Labor Day week end in this house and we loved it! The house was as shown in the pictures, charming and nicely decorated with all the basic supplies you need to feel straight at home. The location is perfect, 5 mins walk from 2nd beach (the most beautiful in Newport I found) on a very nice neighborhood with a nice area with a small swimming pool and jacuzzi that the kids loved. Alexis the owner has been very responsive to our needs and we will try to come back. The only room for improvement would be the patio that was a bit run-down.
Yes. discussed Cottage patio garden with gardener.. It had been put on the back burner after a family emergency.
Great location, quiet, easy walk to the beach.
Loved the quiet, pool, hot tub complete with rabbits all around the lawn in the evening. Owner very responsive. House well equipt. Overall, we would recommend this rental.
Always a pleasure to visit
I believe this is our 5th year at this property. Always clean, well stocked and just beautiful. We love Newport, and staying at this property makes our vacation even more enjoyable!
Thank you , Thank you for your review! It makes my day to know that you enjoy your stay. I hope you return for many years to come!
Cozy, Clean, Comfortable, and Quiet.
We had a truly fantastic time in RI. The property totally exceeded our expectations. Alexis, it was amazing. Everything from shower gel to pepper & salt was there. We received a gorgeous "Welcome Pack" on arrival... water, popcorn, beer etc.. and beautifully presented. The cottage was immaculate. We had 10 nights there and made the most of the local cuisine by dining out most evenings bar the weekend. We did eat breakfast in the cottage every morning & we were thrilled to have a coffee machine. At the weekend we used the outdoor grill/BBQ & it was superb. My husband & teenage sons golfed everyday & I walked the beaches & the nearby Cliff Walk. The location of the cottage was perfect. It didn't take me too long to walk into Newport either. The pool with hot tub was perfect for relaxing in at the end of the day. To sum up.. it was a perfect holiday in a beautiful cottage in a gorgeous location.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. I am so glad you had a good stay. I too love walking the beaches and cliff walk.
