About Alexis Finlay

I am a new owner but will maintain the same management services and high standards. We aim to exceed your expectations.

Alexis Finlay purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Alexis Finlay chose Middletown

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Spend the day at the beach, afternoons sightseeing or shopping, and nights at lively restaurants and clubs on the harbor front. The property is within walking distance to Cliff Walk, Newport’s Easton Beach Carosand Middletown’s Sachuest Beach. This home is one to two miles from Bellevue Avenue mansions and Yachting Center and three miles from Newport Country Club, Bailey’s Beach, New York Yacht Club, Ida Lewis Yacht Club and Sail Newport

This home is in a perfect location to be away from the hectic traffic yet close enough to Bellevue Avenue for mansions and shopping, America's Cup Avenue for wharf and yacht area, and nearby conveniences and many restaurants. Newport is known as 'America's First Summer Resort,' and is the home of The International Tennis Hall of Fame, Newport Preservation Society and Newport Mansions, The Newport Jazz Festival, The Newport Music Festival and the Newport Film Festival. This home is close to Carnegie Abbey and Newport National, known for world class golfing.

Activities at your doorstep include swimming, surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing, & sunbathing on Sachuest (2nd) Beach. On the rocks to the left of the beach enjoy fishing and snorkeling.Walk to Easton's Beach which has a playground, snack bar, merry-go-round, aquarium & live weekly entertainment.

Great Fall Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a great way to start our retirement. We spent 30 Days in the carriage house and it was everything that Alexis Finlay advertised in Home and Away. What a great time and way to visit Newport. The house was clean, neat and well maintained. The service provided by Home and Away made the process for reserving and paying a snap. We had visitors from grown children, siblings and friends, throughout our stay and all were delighted by the accommodations. This was our second time using Home and Away and we will continue to do so. The location was quiet and tucked off the street. Even though there are two other "apartments" in the building they are isolated from one another so privacy was easy to maintain. I would highly recommend this rental for short or longer stays. Thanks to Alexis for the welcome gift and being available to answer any questions we had. I can offer no higher praise than the carriage house felt like home. 5 Stars

Excellent Family weekend,

  • 4 of 5

This property was fantastic. It was the perfect place to stay for our family that went to watch our nephew graduate from Navy OCS.

The property was very clean and very well equipped with everything we needed. We had other family members in the other on site rental unit, the Cottage.

We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We rode the provided bikes, we cooked steaks and shrimp on the provided gas grill.


If anyone needs a place to stay with a large family, there were 12 of us in both of the units, to see a family member graduate from NAVY OCS, I highly recommend this property.

The location was perfect, we enjoyed the nearby beach one day and we enjoyed the short drive into Newport several times for dining and shopping. I hope to visit again one day and would rent this property again!!!

Beautiful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Just as depicted in the included photos and conveyed in the written description, this property is beautiful, as well as ideally located- a 5 minute walk to the beach and a very short drive from downtown Newport to all the shops and restaurants. My husband and I, along with 4 other family members, thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Alexis definitely pays attention to details that make one feel at home here- snacks, beach towels, beach chairs, shampoo, etc. She also put together a great resource binder filled which info about nearby restaurants, activities, and attractions. We did not encounter any issues during our stay and are already trying to figure out when we can return. Thank you for a great stay!

Our family had a wonderful time! The house is so cozy the grounds were beautiful and it was so close to the beaches! The special touches of the local gifts when we arrived was extra special! Having the washer and dryer was also a godsend. The beds were extremely comfortable leaving wrote down what type of mattress it was because it was so comfortable. Thanks again for a wonderful time!

Beautiful house near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cottage on a quiet street just a short walk from the beach. They provided beach towels, chairs and bikes to use during our stay. The house was very clean and well furnished and felt homey and comfortable. They even provided a cute welcome basket! We would love to stay here again for a longer trip next time.

Beautifully maintained property in historic carriage house. Very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week in the Carriage House. We could not have wished for any nicer accommodations. Everything is well maintained and comfortable and good quality. Alexis has thought of everything for the comfort of her guests. Towels were provided for the beach and pool as well as the baths.

The appliances were excellent including the use of a very new washer and dryer.

The Carrige House is located on a beautiful property with distant views of the ocean. We enjoyed the beach and the pool and sitting out on the deck. It was a great spot for our toddler age grandson to test his walking skills without the worry of cars passing by. Our week flew by and we were sad to leave. We loved everything about the Carriage House and its location and hope to return next summer.

Thank you very much, Alexis, for the welcome tote bag filled with RI made treats. It was a lovely introduction to our delightful week. All that you do to ensure the comfort of your guests was greatly appreciated.
