The location was great - we were right in the center of everything. The downstairs and backyards are great for hanging out in.

Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

The home was a great, central location in downtown Newport. Walking distance to all shops, restaurants and attractions. Nice home, with a very nice host (filled the fridge with milk and left muffins) and backyard patio. I would just note that there is only one AC unit in one of the bedrooms.

Texans in Newport for first time visit.

Beautiful home and garden, centrally located, with all amenities provided and with parking! Feel you could not find a more charming host in all of Newport. Great suggestions on dining, sightseeing, beaches , sailing ,groceries and a walk in clinic when I broke a blood vessel in my hand. Frank is the best!

Charming, comfortable home with all the amenities needed at your fingertips. Cute backyard.

  • 4 of 5

This home is right on Thames Street so once you are parked in the driveway there is no need to use your car unless you want to venture beyond Newport. All shops and restaurants are easily walkable. If you enjoy walking a mile or two you can visit the mansions and do the cliff walk. The country kitchen includes all major appliances with a table that is able to seat up to six adults with all the conveniences of in home cooking. There also is seating outside on the patio for up to six adults, along with a gas barbecue grill. The three bedrooms are all comfortable and along with the two sofa beds on the first floor and two full baths on each floor, easily accommodating eight people. The home owner is very friendly and did his best to make sure we were comfortable. We enjoyed our stay there and highly recommend it.
