Lovely and Convenient to all

  • 5 of 5

{NOTE: we visited in August 2016 ...was unable to put the right date in} Sondra's place - on the ground floor of a two-story house - was perfect for my family's visit to Newport. We were 6 adults and one child. The house is indeed charming, with three lovely rooms, including a huge master with a gorgeous canopy bed. There were three much-needed bathrooms, though we all fought to use the one in the outside space where there was also laundry facilities (it is big and secluded for a peaceful shower). everything was clean and cheery, and Sondra herself was such a pleasure ....she even helped me out when my car stalled. She went above and beyond to make sure our stay was great - when we mentioned that the one room without AC was a bit warm she said she would get a portable AC unit in that room this summer (all other rooms have them already). Plus, the place is a short drive from the beach and restaurants, as well as the Cliff Walk (if you're active, you might even walk it) We will be returning this year and can't wait!

Quality and Location is Spot On!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home for its location and were pleased to find the quality matched the convenient location. The first impression of the house is charming from the granite driveway to the adorable front porch. Each room was decorated like an Inn with thought down to the smallest details. The open floor plan in the living room/dining room allowed us to host wine and cheese happy hour while we were getting ready. Town was a quick walk, the shops were down the street and the beaches were minutes away. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed and the owner made us feel special as she addressed our questions and helped us make the most of our stay. I highly recommend this home!

Beautiful home, Owner was great to work with

  • 5 of 5

I came here for a wedding with a group of 10 (we're all in our mid 20s) and the house was perfect! Yes, you need to bring your own bed sheets and towels but Sondra told us that in advance so there were no issues there.

House is spacious and was very clean upon arrival. It's walking distance to downtown and the beach and the key pad access (vs. actual keys) made coming and going in a big group super easy.

Sondra was available when we needed her (there was a late night call when we first arrived since we couldn't figure out the Wifi and she answered and helped) but also gave us our space. Everything leading up to our stay was smooth and all the details she gave us about the house were accurate.

I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it for groups.

Unreliable, disorganized owner - avoid at all cost

  • 1 of 5

My family and I were incredibly disappointed with our stay here, and we did not receive the experience that we were promised by the owner. We originally booked this house so that we could attend my significant other's Navy Officer graduation in Newport, and the experience of staying here left a black eye on our memories and our trip.

I booked weeks in advanced and spoke several times to Sondra, the owner, confirming our reservation. Initially on the phone, she was friendly and seemingly helpful. Unfortunately, her reliability and helpfulness went down the drain the moment we stepped foot into the house. While we were attending one of the graduation events, others were given access to the house. Sondra called my father and left him a rude message letting him know that he was in the wrong house (due to her overbooking and lack of organization) and she was going to remove his things. On the way home, Sondra called me and asked me to relocate my party (which had traveled from California, Alaska, Hawaii and Florida) to accommodate the other party which she double-booked for our same house. When we returned, there were beer bottles and dishes left throughout the kitchen.

The house is older, and not very clean. The kitchen constantly had ants and the air conditioners were leaky. What was even more frustrating is that Sondra was supposed to provide linens, and she didn't provide any linens or towels. I had to go to the store to purchase towels for my guests, only to realize that same night that she also did not provide bedding sheets. I reached out to her to let her know how disappointed I was and she said that she would refund us for the towels that we had to purchase. It has been several weeks, and I have not received any apology, or check reimbursing us for our inconvenience and the towels we had to purchase.

To add insult to injury, Sondra was upset that we had taken the towels (that WE PAID FOR) home with us. Apparently, she expected us to purchase towels for her home and leave them, conveniently, for her.

Do yourself a favor. Do NOT stay here. You will not get what you pay for, and you'll only be left with an unreliable owner who will take advantage of you.
