Great location, easily accommodates large groups, easy booking process.
My nephew got married on Block Island and we had family coming from all over to attend. This home easily and comfortably accommodated all 18 of us. It is not luxurious or fashionably appointed but the kitchen is large (2 refrigerators), plenty of pots, pans, dishes, and flat wear and a variety of appliances (microwave, coffee maker, toaster, etc). The beds are comfortable, the rooms are airy and the view from the deck is beautiful. Best of all, you can walk to town - although it is an uphill walk coming back - completely do-able for the able bodied. The directions on how to get to the property, check-in and check-out, and the house rules are all clear and easy to follow. It is on a dirt road so the house is a little dusty but it is clean over all and provided us with a centrally located spot to spend time together. I would recommend this property.
Great house, well located and perfect for a fun week vacation with large family/friends
The house is full of rooms and large spaces for big groups to gather inside and outside . kitchen and main dining room are perfect to get all together and there are also plenty more rooms for card games, puzzle, outdoor dining (great porch) at different levels. Each bed room has its style but they are all very spacious.
Quiet place and easy to get downtown or to the beach bicycling or walking.
This is a fantastic home. It is within EASY walking distance to town.
This is our third summer at this great Block Island home. We are 8 adults, and 9 grand-children. We come together every summer for family, fun, and laughter. The bedrooms are roomy and well appointed. Each adult couple has their own private bathroom. There is a wonderful deck that surrounds three sides of this home - great for morning coffee and evening sunsets. There are two refrigerators and the kitchen can easily produce meals to feed a large group as does the wonderfully large dining table and extra seating around the large breakfast bar. The manager of this property is a wonderful, accomadating, individual, who readily responds to the needs of her renters. We would not consider renting a different property nor would we consider renting from another person. Love this home, it provides our family with a terrific week of togetherness under one roof.
Met our needs
This property met our needs for our family gathering very well. It had plenty of room on the inside, though it appears smaller on the outside. The kitchen was adequately stocked for the large number of people this house accommodates. The deck space was nice, wrapping around 3/4 of the house, and an ideal place to gather for dinner.
We were able to walk into town in 10 minutes, though it's uphill on the way back! Going to the beach requires a car.
FYI: the outside shower is not very private. It is surrounded with lattice.
Sandy's block is a great house for a large group and very conveniently located a short walk to town. Highly recommend this house
The house was very spacious and accomodated a party of 18
Clean, easy to get to town, perfect location!
There are many fun things to do on Block Island, almost all of them outdoors. The island is at its best when the sun is shining and vacationers can enjoy the spectacular beaches. There is something for everyone. Biking, hiking, kayaking, and recently the stand up paddle board has become a favorite summer activity. There are many sights to see on this historic island, so whether you like to explore on your own or hook up with an organized tour or activity, the choice is yours.
