This magical setting is a short walk to popular South Shore Beach and Goosewing Beach Preserve, a pristine and scenic 75-acre stretch operated by the Nature Conservancy. Coastal ponds flank both ends of the Preserve, making it one of the top birdwatching spots in the RI. For a change of scene, drive to Horseneck Beach and State Reservation in nearby Westport, MA, one of the most popular facilities in the Massachusetts State Forests and Parks system
Little Compton enjoys warmer water than the rest of New England because Cape Cod blocks the cold Labrador currents from reaching the south facing beaches in RI, allowing warmer water from the Gulf Stream to penetrate the area's waters. As a result, South Shore and Goosewing beaches are popular with swimmers and surfers. We provide enough boogie boards for the entire family, as well as a surfboard for the surfer in the family.

Why Gary Jefferson and Andrea Oseas chose Little Compton
We fell for 50 Ocean Drive the instant we saw it. We’d heard about the charms of Little Compton, and were enthralled by the ever-present ocean views, pastoral charm, and comparatively easy access. The waterfront setting with stunning views and close proximity to South Shore Beach and the Goosewing Nature Preserve make #50 Ocean Drive our dream location.
What makes this House unique
Everything about this house says ocean. Virtually everywhere you look, your eye meets the majestic Atlantic. To sit on our bench beside the ocean, with the waves lapping, is to experience true tranquility.

Perfect quiet getaway with gorgeous ocean views!
We loved our stay here in Little Compton! We needed a break from the city and this was perfect: breathtaking views of the ocean, an extensive yard for the kids to run free, a quiet/semi-private neighborhood, and all within a 3-minute drive to South Shore Beach. The house was absolutely lovely --
a true New England-style beach house with so much character and charm; it was clean and had everything you needed and perhaps wouldn't necessarily think of beforehand (e.g. charcoal for the grill, paper towels, even beach toys and lawn games for the kids). The owners were very friendly, too. The area is quiet, but there is a general store that has plenty of supplies a few miles away. My only suggestion would be for the town to figure out some way for guests who are renting to be considered "residents" at the local beach, as we got turned away one afternoon because the beach was full and they were reserving the remaining spots for Little Compton residents only. But that wouldn't deter me from vacationing here again. My 4 year old said it best last week when she said, "Mom, I wish we were in Little Compton." Me, too!
We loved hosting your family, Kate. :)
Adorable, well cared for, perfectly located house
This is our 2nd stay in Little Compton and our first at Oceana. It is a really great house in a stunning location. Great mattresses, nice common rooms, full kitchen, nice extras (boogie boards and other beach stuff for use by guests), easy walk to the beach, impeccable landscaping, etc. The owners were a pleasure to communicate with and were extremely responsive. They were also genuinely concerned that we enjoyed our vacation. Wifi and TV were new, lots of books on the shelves to read, etc. We're already planning our next vacation at this property.
From the moment you walk in the front door of Oceana, the panoramic views to the ocean are breathtaking. This beautiful oceanfront home is situated so that every window and the expansive deck accommodate endless views. Oceana is very comfortable and well appointed for every need. The house is located in a neighborhood of tranquility and privacy, yet close to nearby shopping and sight seeing tours. The beach within a short walk is an added bonus. Andrea and Gary were very easy to work with and were always available and helpful. We had a wonderful vacation the week we were there, and plan to return.

Wonderful family vacation
What an unexpected treat to spend the 4th of July at this beautiful ocean side cottage. We could see fireworks on the nearby beach and in 8 (we counted) other locations from our deck. We launched our kayaks right from the rocky shores in front of the yard. South Shore beach is walking distance but we found it easier and more convenient to just invest in the week pass, so we could come and go with our vehicle loaded with umbrellas and beach chairs. Great waves, warm water and a very clean beach. Had to go early for a spot on the weekend but very quiet during the week. We swam every day. The house itself is charming and accommodated our extended family without a problem. Everyone loved the space. The owners are lovely people and very responsive. A wonderful setting for some fun and relaxation. Enjoyed ourselves immensely and plan to return again.
Perfect coastal retreat
This place is magical. Waves hitting the rocky shore -- hypnotic. Beach rocks in beautiful pastels -- art. The bird life -- yellow, black, brown, blue, white, warbling, wading, paddling, flitting, soaring – uplifting. Bonfire on the beach. Sinking your toes into the sand. A cozy home, with room for everyone to gather and rooms for everyone to be in their own space. A kitchen with everything you need, open so family can keep the chef company. Dining outside, with the ocean as a backdrop. The ocean through almost every window. Sunset painting the ocean pink and purple. Comfy beds. I can’t wait to go back. Until then, I do, often, in my mind.
Beautiful property, great views
We rented this property for a week in April 2015. We were 6 adults and 2 children. We really enjoyed the house and had a lovely vacation week in Little Compton. The property is beautiful and the views astonishing, particularly at dawn. It is conveniently located near a nice beach (about 800m), and relatively near to supermarkets and grocery stores (about a 5-10 minutes drive). The owner was really nice and polite. I enjoy cooking and think the kitchen was well-equipped and comfortable. It was also nice to find a lot of towels in the bathroom. The house has 1.5 restrooms and an outside shower, which we did not use because it was too cold (we did not swim at the beach either). You need a car if you want to get some groceries or go to a restaurant. Overall, the property is beautiful and a great place if you want some quiet vacations.
This property offers panoramic ocean views from most of the rooms. Plenty of plein-air entertaining can be done on the decks or a cookout on the rocks. The lawn is great for summer sports. Nearby is a quaint center commons, picturesque harbor, and unspoiled beaches. There are plenty of hiking trails around the immediate region, and incredible biking on relatively flat terrain.
