About Joan

We purchased this home 18 yrs ago because the water views were breathtaking It felt magical to wake up to the waves in the morning we originally bought this to be close to newport where we vacationed on long weekends although we still go into town often the best part is just relaxing by the bay and being with family

Joan purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Joan chose Portsmouth

We saw many property's when we were looking but fell in love with the magnificent view the neighborhood is quiet the entire street was once a plantation that was then subdivided into cottages for there families many of these homes have been passed down through the generations we were very fortunate to be able to purchase this

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a joy it was to stay at Joan's place! Gorgeous view, sparkling clean and special touches throughout the house. The kitchen is a bit small but it is stocked with nice pots and pans as well as dishes and flatware. The living room has a gorgeous view regardless of the weather. The water is accessed from a stairway down to a rocky beach that you should definitely have beach shoes on for good footing. My goldens loved swimming there. I definitely want to return to Joan's place. The location is perfect! The view is amazing.

Private Feedback:

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your gorgeous home! I don't even know what to say first. When I opened the door it smelled clean and literally sparkled. As I ran my hand over the counter, the sink and the stove I marveled at how extremely clean it was. I am rarely that comfortable with the cleanliness of an Airbnb. The rooms are so nicely decorated and I really love the little beachy type special touches (hand towels, kleenex box.) The linens were all so nice. My son complained a bit about the bed in his room (first bedroom upstairs) being noisey. We were very comfortable in our room and my mother was in the 1st floor bedroom and she was very comfortable. I appreciated the lovely wine glasses. Last night I was sitting on the stairs at the water while the sun was setting listening to the water lapping up against the stairs. So relaxing! The view there is gorgeous. And your response time when the power was out in the outbuilding could not have been better! Kevin does a great job!

Clean, conveniently located, gorgeous view.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. The location is perfect: Newport is easily accessible, Bristol right across the bridge, wineries just down the road. The property was clean and had everything we really needed. And the view from the living room can't be beat.

A relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I arrived with my two friends, we felt calm and relaxed. The home itself was clean and inviting and provided an open space to unwind. The three bedrooms were very comfortable and there were plenty of extra blankets and pillows for when it became cooler at night. We also enjoyed having access to a washer and dryer. My favorite part of this location was being able to step outside and take in the sun while looking out over the calm, quiet bay just relaxing with my friends. I highly highly highly recommend staying here if you need a weekend away or a spot to stay on your family vacation.

The view is amazing!

  • 3 of 5

The view was wonderful. The location was really nice, nice quiet neighborhood. The neighbors were friendly as well.

The house is an older home. Living room was rather comfortable with three large couches to spread out on and watch the boats going by.

We only had a few issues with the property. I messaged the owner separetely. Her response wasn't really much of one, which is why I can only give three out of five stars.

The home wasn't as clean as I would have liked, I don't say that to discourage anyone to not stay in this fine home. Just check under the beds for possible issues if you are bringing small children. Bring your muscles to open the sliding glass door. ( we could only open one side). Bring bug spray. Boh for flying insects and spiders.

Owner's Response: I just saw the note you sent me I would have definitely responded my cleaner must have had an off day as he is usually very good most people say it's so clean but they aren't the ones who give reviews

Lovely view, quiet area but close to attractions. Owner very responsive.

  • 5 of 5

This part of the shore is so quiet and the view is just as the photos show. The neighbors are mostly year round residents so property is maintained and privacy is respected. The cottage is fine, plenty of space. I would add some better lamps for night time reading. Best of all is that the owner and her property manager are very responsive. We had a sudden leak in the water heater and she had a technician out the next morning even though it was Sunday. Our vacation was just what we needed.
