Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Caitlan grew up in Connecticut, Mark grew up in Edmonton, Alberta. We both attended Providence College and have three nearly perfect children:) We have traveled extensively throughout Western Europe, North America and intermittently to Central America and South America. Generally, when we travel we have a few certain criteria that include relatively new, clean, comfortable, and close to engaging activities. When we bought the Tiki Hut we knew we could make some renovations to meet our own criteria and subsequently offer the home to other families with a similar mindset.

Why the Owner Chose Shelter Harbor, Westerly, RI, USA:
We bought this property because it is has all the amenities we could possibly think of for a summer home/rental property. Mark loves to fish, Caitlan loves the beach, and our children love to swim in the pond and explore "mini beach" which is located on the pond side of the main beach (think clamming, build a small fish trap, or chase crabs). The house is close to the pond, a short drive to the ocean, and within a reasonable proximity to Watch Hill, Newport, Providence, and Foxwoods:) When we bought the home we ripped out a wall between the kitchen and the dining room table/great room to create an open style, laid back, relaxing home that feels as if it is a tree house. From any vantage point on the top floor, you see only trees. We also bought the house because we enjoy entertaining and it is literally perfect for two upstairs, one on the ground level. Last, we continue to improve the property with renovations on the ground level in 2015 and the installation of a stone path leading to an outdoor shower...nothing better than getting back from the beach to hit the fresh water outside in a shower.... that's why we bought it, that's why we love it!
