About Joanne Armstrong
I am Joanne Armstrong. I am 60. I live 15 min away in Wakefield RI. I retired from Amtrak on the Acela high speed trains after 34 years. My passion is houses, renting houses and decorating them and updated them. I own 3 of them that I rent. We built this one in 2000 and I designed the floor prints. I have 2 children. My son 24 and my daughter is 21 in college. Both play soccer. My husband and I have been married 28 years.
Joanne Armstrong purchased this House in 2000
Why Joanne Armstrong chose Narragansett
This house has 3 floors to spread out. Kids love the 3rd floor. It is a very short walk to the beach. The kitchen and 3 baths are recently updated. There are 4 bathrooms. The first floor is very open and the patio has 2 tables to seat 12. All very nice. People love this house. Please see the reviews.
What makes this House unique
3rd floor is unique as it is an extra floor. Great for kids or people who sleep in.

Our family has rented many beach houses in the past but this house was simply perfect! We luckily had a great week of weather - 90+ degree days and it was a short walk to beautiful Scarborough beach where we enjoyed the ocean and atmosphere. When we weren’t outside; your air conditioning kept us cool and comfortable. The fully stocked kitchen and spacious pantry along with two refrigerators was key and we prepared many meals as well as stored the black sea bass we caught. We also grilled outside after going clamming and enjoyed ourselves at your spacious table on your back deck.
The favorite spot in the house was the square gaming table off the kitchen. We used it not only for meals but everyone gathered comfortably to play board games in the evening. The whole house was spacious enough that we weren’t running into each other and the extra living room and deck upstairs was a plus.
My adult children have commented multiple times since we have returned home that it was the Best Beach House we ever stayed at!
Joanne - Thank you for being available to us for our questions and we look forward to renting from you again.
This is an ideal house, location and landlord
I don’t think this house and location could be beat. It is the perfect place for a getaway with family or friends. There is plenty of space, walkable to the beach and an extremely homey feel. I was instantly relaxed as soon as I opened the door! The landlord takes great care of the property and goes the extra mile to accommodate and make your stay the best it can be. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else on a trip to Narragansett!
Perfect location, great house!
This house was clean and perfect for a large family or group of friends. Easy walk to the beach and nice neighborhood for walks. Plenty of refrigerator space, nice gas stove and gas grill. Plenty of pillows. Outdoor patio spaces, back yard and 3rd floor with lots of seating. Bright and open on every floor. Highly recommend.
the house was wonderful and it's location excellent - so close to the beach and everything we needed in Narragansett was perfect. we would recommend this house as a perfect getaway.
Great house and location!!!
We really liked this house. The layout was perfect for our family of 10. Beautiful Scarborough Beach was a short walk. The only reason I gave 4 stars rather than 5 stars is because I felt it could have been cleaned a little better before we arrived. And there were a couple things in need of repair. Otherwise....nice rental!!
Great House and location for Large Family Reunion
This house has everything our family needed, large kitchen well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. There was 14 of us and we did not feel crowded at all. All the bedrooms have double beds so all the adults had their own room. The kids had their own space on the third floor. A short walk to Scarborough Beach is the perfect location. Close to Newport, some of us walked the cliff walk and others enjoyed viewing the mansions. On another day we took the ferry to block island. The older kids enjoyed riding their bikes. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had. I would highly recommend this beach home to anyone with a large family.
