Why Zhara Kashani/Robert Goode chose Block Island

This property was the chance we were looking for to get a piece of heaven. We hope you feel that way when you use it

What makes this house unique

This property is central to everything on the island but nice and far away from the maddening crowds.

Pond in the back, horseback riding next door, Rodmans Hollow a mile away(the best nature walk on the island) and an underused beach at Dories cove that you can call your own.The beach is rocky but swimable. Coneymus cove is the beach on the other side of our property one mile away and is a favorite spot for nighttime beach fires. You need a town permit for beach fires. We will have permit applications in the house for 2017

Then there are all the bigger bright spots that everyone knows. Be sure to go to Mansion Beach for the best swimming on the island

Lovely

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean, roomy and spacious. The rooster on the other hand was quite annoying. His time clock was off because he crowed quite often. But we enjoyed being away from town but it wasn't too far away. We hosted a cookout for family that was on the island for my niece's wedding and there was plenty of room. Also it is much bigger than it appears in the picture. Thanks.

Owner's Response: Jody, Thank you for your kind words. Yes the roosters have a mind of thier own. That's why we give advance notice and provide earplugs in every room. Glad you found the house spacious. Please tell your friends and come again. Robert and Zahra

Lovely, peaceful setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely home, well-maintained and perfect for a family or for a few couples. It's on the west side of the island, about 10 minutes from Old Harbor, and it's surrounded by fields, stone walls and wild turkeys! Right next door to Rustic Rides, it's the perfect location if you want to ride. While the kitchen could use a little work (a few of the burners on the stove didn't work, and we had to cook our lobsters one by one, as there was no pot big enough to accommodate more than one), the house in general is well appointed, with comfortable beds, a large dining area/living room, two decks, and two large showers. We'd come back here in a heartbeat!

Beautiful serenity!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to Block Island this past weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The property overlooks the horse farm, which our daughter loved, and it had everything we could have wanted in a getaway. The house is nicely decorated, lots of windows and natural light with amazing blinds. We loved waking up and walking to the nearby beach. We decided not to rent or bring our car this trip and calling a taxi worked out just as well. (We loved Peter Pan taxi!) We look forward to our next stay on Block Island and we will certainly plan to stay here again!

Memorial Day weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family recently visited block island for the first time (10 of us) and the house was the perfect size and location, comfortable, very clean and nicely decorated. The island is beautiful with plenty of outdoor activities, great restaurants and beautiful beaches! The horse farm next door was lovely but definitely bring earplugs if you expect any sleep as those roosters are crowing ALL day and night long from about 2 am until 10 pm! The outside of the house and yard could have been a bit more picked up as there were broken screens laying around, a broken chaise lounge chair, a jeep in the yard filled with rusty junk and garbage and boxes of unpacked household items in the outdoor shower I assume used as a storage place.

Owner's Response: Diane, Thank you for your note. The items that you mentioned definitly needed to go and we picked up right after your stay. Our refuse guy didn't make it to our properrty until after the wekend. The junk was removed right after your stay. The jeep is our mascot , but some don't love it so we'll ponder on that one. We know the roosters are noisy that's why we give people a heads up in our description. Going forward wea re going to leave some ear plugs. we appreciate your input and we are glad you had a good time

Wished WE Could Have Stayed Longer

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have loved Block Island since I was a little girl --I now have a 33 year old son and a 3 year old grandson! Anyway, we have not visited the island for about 10 years and finally had an opportunity to visit in August. What a time we had. There was plenty of room for me and my husband and son and grandson. The house is nicely appointed and the deck and grill provided for easy cooking and socializing. Will definitely want to go back next summer!

Peaceful interlude with nature all around

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed the newly renovated property in the middle of Block Island. Bikes and running were ways to explore and get fit at the same time, but we did have a car for beach stuff transport and hot days. Downstairs bedroom provided privacy for a young couple. Comfy beds, nice flooring and stocked kitchen. Spent lots of deck time, too. Saw many deer! Had a great (legal/permitted) fire on the beach on our last night...two quite nearby for this purpose...and we definitely used the s'mores ingredients kindly provided to us.
