Overview

About the property

Well kept house in quiet location with water view

Welcome to our house! It is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood on Harbour Island, where properties are rarely rented out. The house is across the street from the Pt Judith salt pond where there is an access point for kayaks (ask ahead of time if you would like to use them). There is a lovely view from the large deck, and everything inside the house to cook and make yourselves comfortable! Although the setting is very peaceful, it is 2 miles away from a shopping plaza with grocery store and a couple of good restaurants. 4 miles away from several Narragansett beaches. 14 miles away is Green Hill Beach, which is quieter than Narragansett and is our favorite! The rental includes a key to a private parking spot and clean Porta Potty at Green Hill Beach.

Why Christine Rayner chose Narragansett

Harbour Island is a very quiet, peaceful location with beautiful views of the Pt Judith Salt Pond. We love to kayak in the pond and it is a safe place to bike and for children to play.

House is located on Harbour Island, a very special residential area with few rentals. It is on Point Judith Salt Pond, which is great for swimming, kayaking and boating. It feels very much 'away from everything,' but is conveniently located for restaurants and services. 4 miles from Narragansett beaches, and 14 miles from Green Hill Beach where we have a private free parking spot you can use.

Beautiful and exceptionally clean home.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a quiet stay away. Plenty of room for our family of five. The kitchen was very well equipped and had a large beautiful deck to enjoy our meals on. The home was very, very clean & comfortable. We highly recommend this property. The owners are quick to communicate back and very easy to work with. We look forward to staying here again in the future.

Clean, Spacious and Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

My family was very happy with our stay at Christine's place. There was plenty of space, it was VERY clean and had everything one might need for a short stay. Christine was also very helpful and responded to all communication quickly, an A+ host! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would recommend it those looking for a great place in Southern RI.

Cozy beach hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely perfect! Harbour Island is a very special place - a world away from the crowds in Narragansett, yet just a few minutes to shops restaurants, and beaches. Christine's home is immaculate, cozy, and inviting. We found everything we needed in the well-equipped kitchen, and the outdoor shower was great when coming home from the beach. Christine is a wonderful host, providing a big binder of resources to help us take advantage of all the area has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hope to return as soon as possible!

We are a small family of 3 and Christine's home was perfect in every way! The view is beautiful, water access was easy. It's in a great location and very close to whatever you might need or want to do! We hope to rent again next summer!

Comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

This house was very comfortable and the owners thought of everything! The beds were very comfortable along with the linens and blankets. A/C in both bedrooms was a life saver! Outdoor living area had a large table along with a great grill and plenty of chairs. Home was extremely clean. Thank you Christine!
