About Alan Kinsley

We are the Kinsley family. Originally from Western Massachusetts, we moved to this breathtaking property in West Kingston in 2014 to get away from it all. In such a short time we have fallen in love with this beautiful area, and wanted to provide others with an affordable option to take their family on vacation to enjoy this area we love so much! Thank you for taking the time to look at our property.

Alan Kinsley purchased this cottage in 2014

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My family visited this property for the Newport Boat Show in September. We arrived and everything was in order, easy to get to and there were even cookies to greet us. We met the owners of the property that night as they are close by and they were headed to feed their animals down the road. We asked to join and they told us about them and let our daughter feed them. Be sure to ask what the animals names are! Close by is a large playground that we visited and our 2.5 year old loved it. The property is set off the main road and is very quiet and comfortable. Everything you need is right there, from the grill outside to cooking inside. What a great place!

A good time was had by all.

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed this large country home where there was room enough for the NY and CA contingents, visiting our home state. The owner was very pleasant and helpful, living very nearby. There was also room enough to entertain friends. Providing towels and linens made the travel much easier. All necessary food and supplies were available about 5-10 minutes away.

The only thing missing was the smell of salt air, as this house is about 10-15 minutes from the coastal beaches.

Excellent all Very spacious grounds around the cottage and some interesting animals alpacas & sheep

  • 5 of 5

very hospitable people--helped us out with info on their favorite eatery and their google map book to beaches in the area and interesting sites to see. We didn't need anything, just show up and it was very easy to find. We found several beaches; but the beach they have a pass for was our favorite, South Kingston beach It was not very close to beach; but I think the access to all the different beaches worked out better for us. I would highly recommend going there and will do so again

Cozy place to stay, in excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

This rental was in the perfect location for our group, very central to all the areas we wanted to visit while in Rhode Island, we were just about 30 minutes from everywhere we wanted to go. Also provided was a beach pass which we went to two days out of our trip. This beach is very clean and not crowded at all.

The property was very well kept and the rental was very clean and tidy. One thing to take note of as well, and by no means is it a negative point, is that the owner lives on the property as well. This rental is basically and in-law apartment that is across the driveway from the main dwelling. But as stated before this was by no means a negative impact to our stay.

We had no issue with the reservation and there were even freshly baked cookies waiting for us when we arrived. About the only negative point to make is that there are a lot of caterpillars! Which depending on who you are, might not be a negative point at all!

Owner's Response: Hi Jesse, I just wanted to address the caterpillars, as you are the second guest we have had mention it. There has been what we have referred to as caterpacalypse this year. It has been all over the news and the have literally stripped all the leaves and pine needles off the trees. It looks like nuclear winter for miles around us. The DEM (Department of Environmental Management) has told us that this happened once before in 1983, and should not happen again for a few decades. Sorry if they were bothersome, but it truly has been an experience to witness
