The location was perfect since our son got married at the Sullivan House. Also being across the street from the beach was wonderful. The views of the great salt pond were terrific. Lots of bedrooms allowed us to host extra family. Although only one bathroom on the 2nd floor can be challenging. It wasn't the cleanest, but clearly it had the Block Island charm. We were very happy with the house.
WONDERFUL FAMILY GET A WAY
My family had a wonderful vacation renting this property. The house has nice size rooms so everyone could have their own space if needed. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen works well for large families but the best things are the fabulous views, wonderful large porch and being able to walk to the beach. Also has a large yard for the kids to play & run around. Everything we were hoping for.
Can't wait to go back. Also Kirsten the owner was always available if you had a question.
Beautiful & Charming home with amazing harbor view!
My husband and I spent a week with friends and family at this beautiful home! It was absolutely perfect for what we wanted...a house with ample space for guests (sleeps 10 if you 2 on the pull out), a nice big kitchen for cooking, a beautiful wrap around porch with a grill, and best of all....an amazing yard and view of new harbor and great salt pond! The house is no frills but has great charm and is exactly what we wanted in a vacation home. We walked to the beach from there and used our paddle board in the salt pond. Kristen and her husband were so sweet and accommodating, and respond quickly if there are any questions. The neighboring house is very close (shared driveway), but we respected each other’s privacy and space and it was not an issue for us. Our dog loved the beautiful yard most! I am hoping we will have the chance to stay again in the future!
Challenges of this house are great and so are the views.
Be careful as you approach this house. Driveway is unpaved and deeply rutted. The long grass in middle of the driveway was not mowed making it difficult to see the bumps. Before we even reached the house, we had damaged the undercarriage of our older model van. (Subsequent trips made very carefully.) Arrived to find house filled with the overpowering smell of propane which persisted (albeit, somewhat diminished) even after tank was filled the next day
which owner said would resolve problem. Windows must always remain open to mitigate odor. Stairs are treacherous for older people. No closets are entirely empty—a jumble of personal items stored within every one. Foldout bed in office is not suitable for sleeping on due to very prominent springs in this mattress. Only bathtub was running constantly, occasionally emitting gunk as we filled it to bathe the baby. (Owners said they would come and replace fixtures, but this never happened.) Toilet in tiny upstairs bathroom emits a high-pitched squeal almost every time it is flushed. Windows only have sheer curtains, no shades for darkening or true privacy. Kitchen is not well-equipped if you are planning to cook as we did. Some very basic tools are missing and the older propane stove that is producing the smell that permeates the house, also does not function particularly well. Some of the pots and pans are stored in broken lazy-Susan cabinets making items hard or impossible to reach. Another house is located just a few feet away from this one and there is constant activity there with many people coming and going all day in a pick-up truck which is parked right outside the dining room windows. (It seems there is a wedding business on the property and some of the activity is related to this.) There is some quiet and stillness at this house in the evening, but the daytime activity is pretty constant and detracts from sense of privacy. Porch is lovely, but there is a hot tub that dominates with its cover held down by many straps that often vibrate noisily in the wind. In addition, there was a fair amount of trash and abandoned artifacts around the porch, even a old can of bug spray. Paint is peeling all around porch, but most especially on the floor which is a big concern for children playing there. Best features of this house: glorious views of ocean, harbor, sunrises, sunsets, boats, field of golden, long grass glistening in the sun and waving in the wind & very convenient location.
Beautiful New England Island Getaway
This house is more of a home away from home. From the incredibly responsive host, to the beautiful large rooms and gorgeous views, this is truly an idyllic place to stay on Block island. Close to beaches and town, yet set back enough that you have peace. We have come with friends, and their family and it has been a perfect spot we hope to visit again in the future!
Every.thing was very nice. The size of the house accommodated our family for a wedding perfectly. The location and view were outstanding. The chickens were cute and friendly.
