About the property

This 1900 sq/ft home has 4 well-sized bedrooms, all containing a queen or king bed.

There is also a Pack ‘n’ Play available for use as well.

On the first floor, you'll find a spacious open plan living room and dining room directly off the eat-in kitchen.

The kitchen is fully appointed, including dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and blender. The kitchen table seats 4 and dining room table seats 6.

There are 1.5 bathrooms - 1 full bath on the 2nd floor and a half bath with washer and dryer on the first floor.

In the living room, there is a Flat screen HD TV with cable in the living room, Blu Ray DVD player with access to Netflix, Pandora and YouTube as well as high speed wireless internet.

All bedding & towels are provided.

The house is located less than 1 mile from Gooseberry Beach – a public yet secluded inlet beach that is extremely child friendly, no waves and shallow shoreline.

We are 4 blocks from the Harbor, 1 block off of Thames Street, home to Newport best restaurants, shops and bars.

Beach chairs/lounges and towels all available to borrow – no need to lug from home!

The house has a perfect-sized backyard complete with grill, outdoor table & chairs and is fully fenced. The street and neighbors are quiet and friendly.

Street parking is free and ample in front of the house.

There are 2 wonderful parks within blocks of the house and a few minutes drive from one of the oldest carousels in New England. Scenic Fort Adams, Sail Newport, Ocean Drive and beautiful Bretton point are just minutes away.

Less than 1.5 hours drive from Boston, and under 3 hours from New York City, Newport is all of the destination with none of the hassle. We can also provide restaurant recommendations. It's a great option for a family who doesn't want to deal with or pay for a hotel and all their meals out.

Michele responded promptly and was a pleasure to deal with. The property is older, but each of us loved having our own bedrooms. Beds were comfy! The indoor and outdoor shower worked well for us. Great water pressure! One car was parked outside. The other two, along the waterfront, a couple of blocks away. Very easily accessible. LOVED Gooseberry Beach. $20 charge, but beautiful beach, changing rooms, rest room and snack bar. A car is necessary to reach the beach and also to head into the "action" of downtown Newport. We spent our time exploring and catching up over cards at the kitchen table with drinks. We did think the home could be cleaner, but it acted as our base and was spacious. We would consider renting it again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Michele's Potter Street home! It is spacious, comfortable and fully stocked. Anything we needed was there for us!

The location is great! On a quiet street with just a short walk to loads of restaurants and shopping. We plan on going back to this house for our New Port trip next year!!!

Terrific Home in a Terrific Location

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting homes for years now, and this home in Newport is one done right. There's plenty of space in the home for folks to lounge around, including 4 bedrooms that are bigger than you'd expect in a cottage neighborhood. The living room and dining room are vast, making entertaining easy, and the kitchen is large and well-stocked. The backyard is a great spot for grilling and lawn games. The location is terrific. It's just far enough away from all the buzz that you can enjoy a quiet day, and just close enough that with less than a mile's walk and you're in the middle of everything. The perfect balance.
