Amazing location, quality home

I recommend this beautiful home. This was our first time using a home instead of a hotel and we loved it. So much space, quality decor and close to everything we needed. We would stay again

The house is perfect location and walking distance to anything you would want to do. There was every kitchen appliance you needed to cook if you wanted.

Sondra was always available if we had a question about something. We would give her a call or shoot her a text and she would respond right away.

Definately will be staying at this house again!!!

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.
