Field hockey weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group just returned from our stay at this property. The home was everything we needed it to be- spacious, clean and comfortable! The kitchen was well stocked and the kids loved playing in the back yard. I would definitely recommend it for any large group get together. Robin was so easy to work with and accommodating. Thanks for a great weekend!

Great house! Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group, which included multiple children ranging from 2 to 6. The inside is in great shape with a really nice large dining area and new kitchen and bathrooms (it was even nicer than the pictures!). We spent most of our time in the back yard which has a large deck with a grill and several tables and really nice open grassy area for the kids to run around. Would definitely return and would recommend it to others!

Beautifully renovated Wakefield home

  • 5 of 5

Our company rented the house in Wakefield for two weeks this spring as our home base during a job out of Point View Marina. Robin, our agent, could not have been more friendly and helpful. The house is beautifully renovated, with 8 spacious bedrooms—each room with a queen size bed. The downstairs living area is a very comfortable, open layout with two large dining tables that can be used as ample workspace or to host a large dinner party. The three full baths (and one half bath adjacent to kitchen) were spotlessly clean--the showers were all recently remodeled in stone and tile. The house is perfect for a large group, either multiple families, or professionals working temporarily in the area who need housing for 6-8 people. The house is also less than 5 minutes to local restaurants and shopping. We will not hesitate to rent this property again when we are back in the area. Thank you Robin for insuring a comfortable and pleasant stay!

Overpriced house where many things don't work

  • 2 of 5

This house is located in Wakefield, Rhode Island (30 minutes drive to Newport, 90 minutes to Boston and 3 hours to New York). It makes a good impression at first glance. Unfortunately, this impression does not last over time, due to the many hidden weaknesses. It is situated on a very busy road (Woodruff Avenue) with a lot of traffic even in the evenings; there is no fence between the garden and this road, which makes it dangerous if not impossible for children to play in the garden. When it is windy, the house literally falls apart: we found drain-pipes in the garden. Inside, many technical problems await the tenants: fire alarms kept beeping even after batteries had been replaced, the trashbin in the kitchen was broken (and it took the owners several weeks to repair it), the DVD player and TV sound system did not work properly and the dishwasher was unstable. We had to call the house manager many times to help us fix all these technical incidents. We had mice running through the house, which was amusing for the children, less for the parents. Finally, when we claimed our deposit back, we never received it, because the owners found all kinds of reasons to keep it. So we left, disappointed, thinking that we paid far too much for this house.

Owner's Response: We are sad to hear you left this house and our community disappointed. Our #1 goal as owners as well as our Property Manager is to ensure every family that stays at our beautiful rental property has a terrific experience, as you can read from all of our other reviews. To address some of your concerns, we would like the chance to respond to help others that rely on such reviews when booking their vacations. Before renting this house for your 6 months working here in the United States, the Property Manager and your personally hired Relocation Agent had met you several times at the house in terms of the proximity to the streets and the surrounding areas. You, as do most of our guests, found the location to be completely satisfactory and in turn signed a 6 month lease to reside at our property. During your stay, our property manager had gone to the property on numerous occasions and had also provided an Interpreter for your convenience to explain how to control the TV and DVD players. The house was completely renovated less than 2 years ago, which entailed all of the smoke detectors and wiring to be new. We had provided plenty of batteries for the smoke detectors, and after inspecting these detectors, no problems have been found. The dishwasher was secured immediately upon your concern. We never heard a complaint about mice during your 6 month stay, if we did, the problem would have been addressed immediately. And finally, due to the damages of the garage door and rental of baby items you used as well as non-payment of the last month's rent, your $500 deposit had to be used for these items.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my cousins bachelorette weekend! It was everything that she wanted- The house was extremely spacious and well maintained and updated. Each room had a full size bed and everyone slept comfortably. 4 bathrooms was great. The kitchen and outdoors area was wonderful. The beach was a short drive- There is a fee of $10 parking and $8 admission. But you can try and find free parking on the street which we did. We were also told that if you get on the beach before 8am you wouldn't have to pay the admission fee either! Its secluded yet near stores in case you forget stuff (papergoods a must; toilet paper, garbage bags and paper towels) Its about 30 min to the actual town of newport and an Uber was only $30! Its a great house and perfect for any gathering of large groups!
