Just right for a busy trip.

  • 4 of 5

The place is small as described and if you plan to be vacationing around all day and really only need space to put your head down at night, this place works well. It is walking distance to waterfront restaurants. The convenience of coming back here after a day at the beach, showering up, and strolling down to the shops and restaurants takes away a lot of the stress of vacationing. Compare Steve's place to the cost and hassle of hotels miles outside of downtown Newport...see for yourself.

Cozy, excellent location for Newport!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location for all things Newport. Property is within a half mile to Thames St and the Wharf, along with the beach and cliff walk. Clean. Both bedrooms have AC units and kept the rooms cool. The only reason we did not give it 5 stars was the bed. The bed was very firm which is something we are not used to. Perhaps a foam mattress topper would have made it more comfortable. Thank you Steve!

Charming Newport House

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a very nice stay. The place was just what we needed. It was a great location central to many of Newport's local attractions. A short walk to the beach, cliff walk, mansions district and harbor.

The location is ideal, but the mattresses are really needed to be changed.

For the rest everything is ok and clean. The living room a little bit small but this we perfectly.

Wonderful antique apartment that was clean and well kept. We enjoyed the quiet location and the convenience of being close to the town. We walked into town for an afternoon of sightseeing and 2 lovely dinners.
