About the property

Two unit home with additional 1 bdrm cottage very close to beach and Newport

This is a three story, two unit beach home as well as a 1 bedroom cottage (total of 3 units), located on Briarwood Ave just off of Aquidneck Ave with views of both the ocean and reservoir. Our property is steps from Easton's Beach, very close to the Cliff walk and Newport mansions and approximately 1.5 miles from downtown Newport. In addition to the close proximity of 1st beach (Easton's Beach), it is also a short distance to Middletown's 2nd and 3rd beaches. This house is perfect if you are looking for a centrally located place to spend a summer week or weekend with good friends or family. It is the perfect destination for wedding parties as the separate units work well to accommodate for multiple families, and it is only steps away from popular wedding venues including Longwood Events Beach House and Easton's Beach Rotunda. The units have separate kitchens and amenities, each of the 2 units in the main house has 3-4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms; total of 7-8 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The cottage has 1 bedroom, as well as it's own bathroom and kitchen with a pull out couch in the living area. There is an upper and a lower deck on the main house with views of both the ocean and reservoir, along with a private grilling area in the front of the house as well as in the front of the cottage. There are also views of the water from multiple rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors. This multifamily property is rented out as one rental, the units cannot be rented separately. This is a rental for mature adults and families with children and is ideal for weddings, family vacations, and friends getaways. We do not allow for large gatherings or parties on the property. The owners reside in the same neighborhood so are readily available with any questions that you may have during your stay. Looking for a house to accommodate a large group of people, with easy access to the beach and other Newport highlights? This is the house you are looking for.

exactly what we were looking for!

This is the perfect home for housing a large group. The location is ideal. Easy Access to the beach and just a stones throw from downtown. My friends and I had a fantastic weekend!

Traveling with small kids

  • 4 of 5

Great house for a large group - we had 4 families traveling together (with small kids) for week - lots of bedrooms to spare! Porch areas great for hanging out and close enough to beach to easily walk over. Close to downtown - short drive and some of our more adventrous guests walked it a few times. Did have some loud neighbors on weekend (not our owner's fault!). Owner was very responsive to help with any issues we had. Wifi was difficult to use - so if you're planning on bringing apple TV or such device, check with owner first. Place was clean, but would recommend a professional cleaning service (or get a new one!) - again, traveling with small kids so they were all over the floors.... Overall excellent property and would visit again!

Newport Wedding Party Idyllic

  • 5 of 5

We just rented the two units of this wonderful seaside abode for a wedding party of 16 for 4 days of heavenly bliss. It could not have been more picturesque and/or ideally situated for our needs. The two units served us well offering the bridesmaids entirely separate space from the groomsmen while affording the entire wedding party areas of common space and connection. The two distinct kitchens allowed us to cook our own Italian rehearsal dinner for 100 which we were conveniently able to transport a few blocks away to serve guests at Easton Beach's Rotunda Ballroom the night before our big event. The wedding itself was located at Rosecliff Mansion on Bellevue Ave.~a gorgeous setting less than 8 minutes away making for easy access for our young bridal party members getting to and fro and alleviating the stress of being concerned about stranded bridal party members on the other side of the Newport Bridge! The Briarwood home makes for easy walking to Easton's beach, as well as various and sundry eateries and convenience stores close by. The house itself was delightfully furnished and accessorized, affording all of our out of town guests anything and everything they would need for a partial week's stay...lawn chairs, a grill, a wrap-around porch, coolers, parking for 6 autos, laundry facility, a multitude of rooms with comfortable bedding and beautiful views. It was quiet and serene, and everything worked like clockwork as stated as it would in the contract. The home owners, Lauren & Dustin, were outstanding to work with...clearly being principled people with a lot of integrity. We cannot endorse our stay highly enough. Thank you for hosting us and for making a most memorable New England occasion! We would recommend this home for anyone considering a wedding in the area. Top notch in every category!

Ideal Space Perfect Beach home for big family (or families!)

  • 5 of 5

Lauren was amazing. She was incredible helpful and fast. She answered all questions - and was available if needs be. The property was perfect for our wedding. The groom (me) and bride's big families with big personalities fit very comfortably in this big house with multiple rooms. If you are getting married in the Newport Beach House the location literally could not be better. We looked for months for the right spot and are over the moon about the result!

Fantastic home! Highly recommended!

The house is beautiful, massive, and very close to both downtown Newport and the beach. I couldn't recommend the property or the hosts more. Thank you Lauren!

Stayed on Briarwood last week for family vacation, and the place was GREAT. The location, the house, and the owner were perfect. She was friendly, helpful, and keeps a beautiful, comfy house. Everything you'd ever need, was in this house. And TONS of room for a large group. We had about 16 in and out all week. Short walk to beach, eats, drinks, and more. Views were great - I highly recommend Briarwood for your next vacation!!!!! Thanks for the memories :)
