Fun and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Happy Landing! The house was just right for our family of 4 including 2 little kids. We enjoyed the deck during nap times and the fire pit after bedtimes. The kids ran all over the yard and loved the outdoor shower after long days at the beach. Every night the 4 of us walked or biked into town or the Oar for dinner. Thanks Linda and Dave for a great home for our Block Island vacation!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for 4 workers we had staying in Block Island. The owner was very easy to work with. Replied to all questions quickly. The house is close to the ferry terminal.

Everything about the house was perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a weekend at Happy Landings celebrating my daughter's 30th birthday and it was just perfect. Linda and Dave were super nice and very helpful as I had never been to Block Island before. It was a quick, easy walk to town and the house was comfy and cozy - had everything we could possibly need. I look forward to going back again, hopefully very soon! I highly recommend this property - it was just wonderful.

Happy Landing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a glorious weekend on Block Island--a place where we went every summer for 10 years when the kids were growing up. For my husband's "big birthday" we rented Happy Landing and our daughters flew in from the West Coast. We saw the beautiful pictures of this lovely home on the web site and were not disappointed! The house was sweet, comfortable and beautifully situated near town on a fabulous piece of property. The wrap around veranda was great and though it was the end of October, the weather was sunny and warm and we sat out there and enjoyed the view and the quiet. We brought our own food and cooked in the newly renovated kitchen which had everything we needed...though on Saturday night we went to Kimberlys and had a delicious meal complete with great music and friendly waiters dressed up for Hallowe'en. The owners, David and Linda Murphy, couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating and were available to speak to us about any questions we had about our weekend. They had put together a wonderful binder of "things to do" on Block Island...great hikes and gems of information about places even we didn't know. All in all, a really fantastic birthday celebration weekend. We couldn't have been happier !!
