About the Property

The Hygeia House offers 12 bedrooms and 11.5 baths.

The Hygeia House is Block Island's largest vacation rental boasting 12 bedrooms and 11.5 bathrooms and is the ideal home for large families, retreats, reunions, and wedding parties. This historic home has been renovated in 2016 and now includes a modern kitchen with new appliances and stainless steel grill steps away on one of the two covered porches. Hygeia is equipped for outdoor and indoor dining for 26. Lounge on our porch in a rocking chair or take a nap in the hammock. Hygeia’s location nestled atop the hill between New Harbor and town allows you to relax and enjoy the views. It offers a short walk to town with Block Island's famous shopping, the beach, and the Great Salt Pond. At night enjoy comfortable seating by the propane fire pit for the whole group to enjoy. The Hygeia is a truly remarkable and unique property.
