Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Enjoy salt water views from the large wrap around porch, second story deck and the yard of this home on picturesque Great Island. Just 1 mile from Salty Brine Beach, 2 miles from Sand Hill Cove Beach and 3 miles from Scarborough Beach this completely renovated home is ideal for summer fun or quiet spring/fall weekends with the family.

There's plenty of room in our 1500 sq ft home for three couples or two entire families vacationing together. After a day at the beach let the kids run around in the yard on this quiet island yet you are less than a mile from some of the town's best seafood restaurants and the historic fishing port of Galilee where the Block Island Ferry departs.

This is our vacation home which we use regularly, not an investment property. We acquired the property in the spring of 2007 and completely renovated it top to bottom in 2008/9 including an open floor plan with cathedral ceilings as well as new bedrooms and bathrooms.

About David Menninger

We are a family of seven with kids ranging from middle school to adult. Throughout our lives we've always spent time near the water and need to get our water fix periodically.

David Menninger purchased this house in 2007

Why David Menninger chose Narragansett area

Our home is located in a quiet residential area of Narragansett known as Great Island. There are no commercial properties of any kind on the island and nearly all the homes are within 100 yards of the water. As soon as you drive onto the island, with it's winding roads and small rolling hills, you know you are on vacation.

What makes this house unique

We spent a long time looking for an 'upside down' house. You will enjoy views of the water from the open floor plan living room, dining area and kitchen on the second floor just steps from the second story deck and picnic table.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We visited in October 2009 for a week & had a wonderful time. The home was very spacious & beautifully decorated, with lots of nice touches. The neighborhood was terrific and only a short drive to local beaches & attractions. Plenty of seating room outside with a great upper deck and lower porch area. The owners were very nice & accomodating. Thanks again!

Love this property & location!

  • 4 of 5

This is our 2nd year of staying at this Great Island residence. We love that the house is so bright with natural light via skylights on 2nd floor living quarters. Even if you get a few cloudy or foggy days, like we did, it's still pleasant. The location is pristine & quiet. You feel like you are in a bird sanctuary, since that's all the sounds you hear. A body of water close by to kayak, beaches - 2 min. drive away and delicious seafood market....you can't ask for anything more.

Peaceful coastal getaway

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place for a long weekend to attend a wedding in Newport, and Dave Menninger's lovely home on Great Island fit the bill. Wonderful home on a quiet island with all the comforts for all of us, nice to be out of the tourist crunch of Newport. I appreciate Dave offering us a short rental for our needs. Wheeler Beach was close by and our 2 year old granddaughter loved it (so did her parents and us). Point Judith Light and the rest of the coast was very scenic. Had no idea Rhode Island was such a coastal treasure. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Fresh. Clean. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and some friends rented this house back in 2013 and had such a great time and just loved the house, so we decided to do it again this Memorial Day weekend. Again we enjoyed Narragansett and did a couple day trips to Newport and Block Island. The house is so clean and fresh. The decor makes you feel like you're at the beach. I love all the natural light and the outdoor space. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet. Will definitely stay here again in the future.

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at this house! Everything was organized and clean. The house is beautiful and comfortable. The owner was nice enough to let us bring our dog Scoobie. I definitely recommend to anyone and possibly will be renting it again for the summer.
