traveler reviews for this newport house rental

Guest Comment entered by owner

Perfect, homely, comfortable, every need covered

Review submitted: July 1, 2014   Date of arrival: April 3, 2014

A really lovely stay. Fantastic owners who obviously take pride in this property and were incredibly accommodating of us and our two very small children. Incredibly clean, well stocked home. Very close to the main shopping street, bars and restaurants right in the heart of the town whilst feeling the open air of the park just across the road. A perfect little garden out back with deck and bbq made for lovely evenings in the spring sunlight. Was very sad to leave when the time came and will certainly recommend to anyone wanting a central location in newport.

"Excited to return for our fourth summer!"

Review submitted: February 27, 2014   Date of arrival: August 1, 2013

We have received the following review from clients who have to our delight returned to our property for the past three years. We have enjoyed their tenancies, and are so grateful that they have written such a great review!

My husband and I have rented this wonderful cottage for a month for the past three summers--this summer will make our fourth. Where do I begin? The house is the perfect getaway--close to the water, a stone's throw to the restaurants and shops of Thames Street, offers off-street parking...everything you could possibly need to make your time in Newport special. It's located exactly where you'd want to be if visiting. The interior of the house and charming and cozy. We typically have guests every weekend...and they are always dying to return the next summer! Both bedrooms are lovely, and we've had an extra guest during a weekend visit who was able to stay on the pull-out couch in the living room. The backyard is impeccably maintained, and we try to enjoy our meals on the deck as much as possible to enjoy Biddy's lovely gardens. My husband and I can't imagine a summer without a month in our special place in Newport. I can't say enough about the house, and we count down the weeks to our time there each year

Happy Month of May

Review submitted: August 9, 2012   Date of arrival: April 26, 2012

My wife and I needed to find a place where we could transition between a Boston suburb where the sale of our house closed in late April and early June, when we could move into our house in Fairfield County, CT. We would have 2 loaded cars, 2 bikes, and our nearly 15 year old Yorkie ("Baby") with the rest of our stuff packed away into storage; rather than try to rent locally, we thought it would be a good chance to try to turn this 6 week interlude into a kind of vacation. 7 Clinton sounded like the perfect fit for our needs and we were not disappointed. The house was exactly as advertised, It has now been a couple of months since our stay in Newport, but we have nothing but happy and pleasant memories: Biddy was extremely helpful on our arrival in straightening out the internet connection; she had just recently installed a flat screen TV; thoughtfully equipped the kitchen with an oven toaster (which we had inquired about) and a brand new gas barbecue. Flowers were just beginning to bloom and while we had our share of windy/rainy days, spring sunshine was plentiful and there was nothing more exhilarating than going on our daily cycling (with Baby in a basket) loop around Ocean Drive (all sorts of pleasant routes, most averaging 8 or 9 miles); while the wind gust could occasionally be very challenging, the roads and scenic points were virtually deserted at this time of the year (at least up until late May), making it all the more private and enjoyable; nothing like watching the waves. Biddy and Ed pay constant attention to the maintenance and upkeep of their property, down to the smallest details. The house is two short blocks from lower Thames; even during what was preseason, tons of places to eat; among our favorite was Mama Luisa; I also especially enjoyed the cheap but delicious belly clam sandwiches at Juicy Cheesy on Thames St (Egyptian owner!). The grass courts at the Newport Tennis Club were not open but I played several times at the club clinic, a short bike ride (or walk ..uphill; or drive) away. After staying at Biddy's for a month, we admit we were looking forward to moving on to Chatham ; we can report that while the Chatham house had a beautiful sea view, there was simply no comparison to 7 Clinton St., in terms of cleanliness and maintenance and care. Highly recommended for 1 couple (with or w/o children) or perhaps 2 couples (although only 1 full plus 1 half bath may be a constraint).

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: It is our express intention when setting up #7 Clinton St., to make it as welcoming and easy as possible for our clients to move in and be comfortable. We try to make sure that everything in the house runs smoothly, and that should a problem occur, we will do our best to rectify the situation asap. We usually use the winter months to work on any necessary repairs, and freshen up paint etc.
We are very grateful to Richard and Tina for their great review. We hope all our future clients really enjoy their time in #7 Clinton St., as much as Richard and Tina have reported in their review. It is always very helpful to receive feedback from our clients, and we will always try to work with any special needs. We are happy to respond to inquiries for more details, and any questions about the house and location.
Newport is a very special place with much to do and see, and we feel lucky to live here. We really enjoy being able to offer a temporary home to visitors to the island.
We look forward to both meeting new clients, and welcoming back return visitors.
