Perfect location and wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here with 7 friends. Kathy was wonderful. The home was clean , well stocked and very welcoming. The location is perfect as we walked everywhere from cliff walk to downtown.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded our expectations. The house literally is in the perfect location - we walked to breakfast at Meg's Aussie Milk Bar, lunch at Nikola's, dinner at The Mooring and most importantly to grab drinks at Cappy's! The few times we needed a car we Uber'd and a driver was at the house in a few minutes. The check-in/out process was a breeze- I actually never spoke with Kathy over the phone but she was always very quick to reply via email. We all had such a great time we plan on coming back to Newport and staying here again!

absolutely beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 7 other people for a bachelorette party in Newport for a weekend. The home is absolutely gorgeous and the owner was a joy to communicate with. The kitchen is gorgeous with a 6 burner gas stove, grill was perfect for our chicken skewers, plenty of bathrooms for all of us, comfortable beds, large dining table to fit all of us, centrally located to be able to walk everywhere, etc. It was perfect!

Beautiful home, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a weekend girls trip and it was great! The house is large, and had enough room for our large group. Very quick walk to town for shopping, restaurants and bars, and the beach! Also a short drive from the cliff walk.

Kathy was great to work with. Would definitely recommend and use again!
