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

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!

Mother’s Day Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, clean. We loved the upside down house. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. My mother was looking forward to that weekend but she passed a month before it. My sisters, nieces and I celebrated her. We took the ferry over to Block Island. We had a beautiful day on the island. I would definitely rent this property again. Thank you David and Sharron.

Owner's Response: There are several things readers should know about this review: - yes, there was a heating problem in one room & within 3 hours we had delivered 2 space heaters that worked so well, the guest asked us to come back and show them how to turn the heat down. - the review was only written after I posted a negative review about the guest. They left this house like a pig sty. I would post photos of the condition here if I could. I knew I would get a negative review after posting my review of the guest, but I felt obligated to let other owners know what to expect from this renter. - this is the first negative review we have received in ten years of renting our home. Please see what other guests have to say.

Autumn stay with sisters

  • 4 of 5

Six sisters get together annually for a long weekend, usually in October. The Great Island property was comfortable, clean, well equipped (we all cook), had many touches like great colors and art work that made it very homey. We liked the upside down design with bedrooms downstairs, and the big open bright upstairs.The upstairs deck off the kitchen was especially enjoyed by some of our early risers watching the sunrise, as well as for all for enjoying an afternoon glass of wine..

Easy ride into Newport - we went to a seafood festival and took one of the trolley tours. The weather was wet, so we did not spend a lot of time at the nearby beaches, but they are very close.

Would heartedly recommend this property for families, adults and children.

The property was clean, well equipped, and in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

My mom, 4 sisters, and I rented this beautiful property for a long weekend to visit an old family friend who lives in RI. It was everything I hoped it would be and more! The house is set up to accommodate everyone comfortably. It was well stocked in the kitchen and the deck and porches were very comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed a yummy lobster dinner we purchased right off the docks! I would highly recommend this property. One downfall was it wasn't handicap accessible. My 85 yr old mom didn't like the steps going up to the living area, but we managed. Beautiful place!

Wonderful House with views, clean rooms and all the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room for 6 adults, spectacular views and a great location to just chill or to head to the beach in less than 5 or 10 minutes.
