Newport Charm in this Stellar Vacation Home
We had our best out of 4 vacations in Newport staying at Frank's place on Thames. His home is decorated with Newport charm and full of his amazing artwork. It also has everything you need to cook and entertain guests, and the garden in the backyard is especially beautiful and peaceful. There is a grill and seating for many people and he even has patio dishes which came in handy since we ate most of our meals out there. The kitchen is huge and stocked with all the necessities. Frank even left bottled water for us that lasted our stay. The bedrooms are large with very comfortable beds and cotton sheets! Frank has the home stocked with tons of bath and beach towels which was a huge plus as we went to the beach almost everyday. The home is warm and friendly and so is Frank! But best of all we loved the location! It is right on Thames and has 2 off street parking spots. Nice to not have to drive thru the neighborhood finding a spot to park. And we were right across the street from O'Brian's Irish Pub which is a fun spot to hang out evenings and a short walk home. Many great restaurants in short walking distance. The pub is noisy at night but we ran the fan on the air conditioner and didn't hear a thing in any of the bedrooms so it did not keep us awake. This place is very reasonably priced , very clean and comfortable! We loved it and will stay again.
FrankG was warm and welcoming, the house was spotless and the location convenient to everything.
Vibrant location, clean and charming house, wonderful rock garden for enjoying coffee or wine. Close to Mokka and O'Brien's. Great shopping and restaurant in the neighborhood.
Home away from home; central to everything
We had a fantastic time at Frank's house. He is a wonderful host and incredibly helpful (very interesting guy to chat with, too). It is so homey that it is hard to give it up at the end of a week... The house dates back to the late 19th century which gives it a lot of charm, and it is filled with Frank's art and artwork. It takes an evening just to tour the house and see everything. Kitchen is well stocked for cooking, and the grill is great. The backyard is beautiful. You can walk to everything - through town, to the Cliff Walk and mansions, to the ferry dock, etc.- and just leave your car parked in the driveway. If we go back to Newport, we would definitely rent this house again!
The Simone Family vacation
The Simone family had a super time staying at Frank's house in Newport. The house is charming and the location was perfect for us. Frank was very accommodating and helpful with information about restaurants. All the bedrooms were air conditioned which was great giving the fact we landed during hot, sunny weather. I loved the shops right on Thames and the restaurants recommended by Frank were spot on, especially Scales and Shells. The mansions are a must see. Have fun in Newport!
Fabulous host, wonderful location
Frank is a 5-star host. You couldn't ask for a nicer guy as a property owner/manager. The house is very well located (can be a bit noisy at night) to access everything Newport has to offer. We would've loved to stay for a whole week.
In the heart of newport
The location was great - we were right in the center of everything. The downstairs and backyards are great for hanging out in.
