About Paul & Trish Onofrio
We bought this property in 1997. It was very rundown. We lived on the property and did most of the renovations and landscaping ourselves with lots of help from friends and family. We now live in the next town but continue to be very 'hands-on'. We oversee the weekly turnovers to be sure the cottages are clean and well maintained. We are easily reached to solve any problems or answer questions for our guests.
Why Paul & Trish Onofrio chose Newport East
Trisha grew up in the Newport area and Paul grew up near the coast in Madison, Connecticut. Shortly after getting married, we were thrilled to find a 'fixer-upper' so close to the ocean. We take great pride in having created a unique vacation spot for so many of our returning renters and look forward to meeting new renters every year.
What makes this Apartment unique
Paul's gardens are what all our renters comment on and make our place special. When you walk through the gate, behind the hedge, the landscaping will charm you. Seashell paths, arbors, roses, hydrangeas, daisies, blueberry bushes and strawberries, covered decks, butterflies, birds, bunnies and more create a serene and unforgettable place to relax and unwind.

100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
The apartment worked out well enough. A bit noisy - need to leave windows open since no air conditioning.
Kitchen was well stocked for eating in and cooking. You can walk everywhere - the beach, cliff walk and town. Love that!
It's a very nice place. Near First Beach and lots of restaurants. Clean with all the basics, good showers, washer/dryer, etc. Comfortable beds.
Property as advertised in photos, descriptions, and testimonials
We were in Newport for a family wedding and rented three of the units. They were as expected - clean, comfortable, in a great location. Would go back again. Only glitch was in communication from owners - did not receive check in information in advance and had to request it two days before our arrival, and there was confusion with another guest checking in on which unit was whose. All worked out fine, but communication between the two owners and guests could be improved.
The unit was very clean and perfect for the 7 of us!
Great House, Location & Owners
So glad we stayed here!
House is conveniently located in Middletown a short walk to the beach (~5-10 min) and a short drive (5 min) to downtown newport. Clean, well-kept and it has a fantastic rooftop deck! Our group had 3 adult couples for which the place has more than enough room to spread out.
Paul & Trisha were extremely pleasant to deal with, and even sent me my driver's license after I lost it in their house :)
Would absolutely stay here again.
Perfect for our family
Our son was graduating from Officer Candidate School. We planned to attend as well as our daughter in law, her cousin and our 14 month old granddaughter. This allowed us the comfort of room with kitchen living room and the bedroom space we needed as well as a great view from the rooftop deck. It was a very short distance to the beach and grocery stores and anything else we might need for our stay. You won't be disappointed, we certainly weren't.
The walk to the beach is about two blocks. There is no fee to walk on the beach. There are restaurants and convenience stores with walking distance. It is a great area for walking, running, biking, roller blading, surfing and kayaking. All equipment available to rent nearby. Downtown Newport is 2 miles away. There is wonderful shopping, restaurants, harbor cruises, tours of mansions and historical sites. From Newport you can take day trips to Block Island or Martha's Vineyard and there are several quaint seaside villages within a 30 minute drive including Wickford, Bristol or Little Compton R.I.
