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 Rhode Island

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

“We stayed at Joan's place during April vacation 2017 with our 10yr old and 1yr old. We were also allowed to bring our labrador, who loved the water. The location is perfect! Beautiful views of the water, quiet location, close to Newport. It would be nice to stay here when the weather is warmer and go swimming! :)”we had a great time last week! We lucked out with the weather and had a few warm days in the 60's-70's. The location is beautiful! It's nice that the area is quiet, but still close to restaurants and shopping.

Beautiful with breath taking views of the bay

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was home for spring break so we decided to take a road trip to one of the places we love most. We hadn't been to the house in a while so it was a wonderful surprise to see that is was redone. I thought it was beautiful before but all the upgrades and new furnishing made it feel like a 5 star hotel. There was a welcome sign and chocolates on the table with a note wishing us a fun time which I thought was a nice touch. There were toiletries like toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap etc. in case we forgot something from home. The house was exceptionally neat and clean and the heat was even put on for us prior to our arrival due to it being cold. Now that's service!!!! The view from the living room was even more spectacular then we had remembered. We loved our time there so much that I already booked the house for a weekend in May. We can't wait to go back and hang outside in the warmer weather taking dips in the bay.

The only plus for this property is the view and the living room. The rest is most disappointing.

  • 2 of 5

Living room view 10/10. The rest of this property is 3/10. Too bad. for a few hundred dollars invested it could be a 7/10. We should have paid more attention to the previous reviews! We left after 3 nights out of 7

1. Ants still in kitchenette. $2 in ant poison box wold fix this

2. Downstairs bathroom access from master bath is dangerous with 6" step down to 18" " hole" then step up. Just put a grate in to even it out before someone breaks a hip.

3. Try investing in a $5 shower curtain and $10 in caulking for the shower/tub

4. Bed under sheets in bad shape.

5. We never went up stairs to the 2 bedrooms up there and have no comments.

Best part of the kitchenette was the paper plates and plastic silverware.

We would not recommend this property. ( We have stayed with VRBO on multiple previous occasions and have always been quite pleased, and never disappointed.)

Owner's Response: Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay I know it rained which does bring ants and we always spray but being on the water it sometimes happens the step down to the bathroom is the way house is designed it has never been a problem the bathtub was just totally recorked sorry if you didn't like our taste in shower curtain and sorry you didn't have better weather
