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.

Helpful votes:1/1.

This house was excellent for 6 people, with 2 queens and two singles. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well-equipped, the house was clean, and Trish was very helpful! Would definitely recommend a car but we managed fine without one, ordering a minivan cab when we needed to get downtown (which was cheap, split amongst 6 people). The only downside was the one bathroom, which got a little busy with 6 people in the house, but with a little patience, it was only a minor inconvenience. Would definitely want to stay here again!

A beautiful respite near Second Beach and Newport, RI.

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I (16 of us, ages 13 to 81) spent a wonderful week at the three apartments ( the Bass Rocks Upper Deck, Carriage House and Cottage) that compromise this lovely historic carriage house. The accommodations were exactly as described on VRBO-- each apartment was well appointed with thoughtful touches-- many beach chairs/towels, boogie boards, well-equipped kitchens, the beds and bed linens were top-notch. The fenced-in yard and pool was a private and spacious area for my family to gather in the afternoons for a swim, cornhole and other lawn games. The walk to Second Beach is very easy-- even the grandparents were able to walk to it. The surrounding neighborhood is lovely-- my sisters and I had many early morning walks along Tuckerman Ave, from where you can catch glimpses of the water. The location is ideal in terms of accessing all the many activities, restaurants, and shopping that Newport offers. We look forward to going back!!

Comfy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We came to the cottage as a grown family of 6. There are 3 bedrooms and two baths. The bedroom with the bath is a small bedroom. With two single beds. The house is walking distance to second beach. The owner provides you with beach chairs and towels, even a cart to carry your things for the beach. The kitchen is very nice, stocked with enough odd and ends to cut down your shopping list. The pool is not very large and is shared with other renters. This was the one thing I did not get was that it’s a house within a complex of other small houses. Alexis is a gracious host and my family had a very nice vacation.

The stay was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bass Rocks Cottage. We loved the location as we could bike or walk to the beaches, restaurants, shops. The house was cozy and clean and the pool was relaxing. The caretaker of the cottage took great care of the house and pool area. Thank you for a great stay!

The property was just perfect. Great location, pleasant accommodations, nice outdoor space.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Charming and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

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.
