Overview

About the property

3BR, 1 BA

Labor Day weekend is our last available spot!

This wonderfully clean, bright, rustic summer cottage in sunny Narragansett will provide you with all the comforts of home, including free cable/new flat screen tv and WiFi, while only a short walk to Scarborough Beach (0.6 miles).

The house has a newer bathroom (6-2012), and is freshly painted, both inside and out.

It has a very cute private backyard with newer deck (2010), grill, outdoor shower, outdoor fireplace, and lots of charm. There is water access at the bottom of the street that provides the occupants with a spot to launch canoes and kayaks, go shell fishing, or watch the sunset. Tennis and basket ball courts very close by ... what more could you ask for?

Excellent house close to everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Great little home located in central location. 1 mile gets you to beaches, restaurants and the block island ferry. Fireplace off the deck was a great surprise. Grilling lobster, fish and clams on the grill was perfect. House was clean and Luke is very accommodating.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfectly clean when we arrived to the beach house! It is in a wonderful neighborhood right in Narraganset! There is so much to do! The outside deck is beautiful and perfect for cookouts during the summer! The rooms were all clean, with brand new mattresses and air condition! The living room is a great size with comfortable couch.

Luke was great to work with and was willing to come and fix anything we needed to make our stay that much better!

Cute cottage with great access to beaches and Point Judith Pond. Great for paddlers.

  • 4 of 5

This is a clean comfortable cottage with access to nearby beaches and Point Judith Pond. We walked our canoes/kayaks down the street to an unmarked launch site. We found it by following a neighbor who was wheeling his kayak down the street and was nice enough to show us where to go. There is another launch site but very steep and difficult to launch boats from. The good one is at the end of Pond View Road.

We enjoyed the deck and backyard very much. The cottage is bigger than it looks in the pictures and very comfortable for a family of three adults. I would rent it again.

The one suggestion that I have is to upgrade the mattress in both the larger bedrooms. The mattresses had thin foam toppers which I didn't like.

The neighborhood is quiet and people are friendly. We had a peaceful and enjoyable time. I would give it 5 stars if the mattresses were better.

Beautiful beaches just five minutes away

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Beautiful beaches just five minutes away. Can access most of Narragansett activities within 15 minutes. Luke was great to work with and very responsive to any questions or issues we had.

Spacious Beach house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house looks small from outside however the 3 bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The living room is also large. Equipt with basic utensils, plates , pots and pans. Bring any extra or special pieces you use. The back yard is a perfect mixture of shade and sun. We spent a great amount of time on the back deck and used the fire pit every night the weather allowed. Luke was very accomodating and took care of anything we needed. The beaches are all a short drive away ( less than 5 min ). The water access at the bottom of the street is only good for a kayak or something of that type. There are lots of bunnies, deer and turkeys in the neighborhood. The neighbors are friendly in the back as well. Would recommend this house to anyone looking for a true beach house.

Mediocre to poor

  • 2 of 5

I have been conflicted about writing this review but I want to do it so people can make an informed decision about renting this property. We feel we paid too much for this rental for what was offered. The beds were horrible. The 3 inch mattresses were poking us every night. One of my children chose to sleep on the floor instead of on the bed. I replaced the shower curtain because it was moldy and scaly. There were basic items missing from the kitchen/house(cutting board, whisk, dustpan, etc.) I contacted Luke about recycling barrels. He said he would bring one, never did. There were ants(we expect those in the summer) and mice droppings under the sink. I took pictures. We rent in Narragansett every year and this house was the worst. I would not rent this house again.

Owner's Response: Dear Ms. L, Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. While we would have appreciated a chance to rectify things for you while you stayed, at least we have been made aware so that we can address these items. -We have ordered and will be installing memory foam for all of the mattresses. -Thank you for letting us know about the missing items, we will deliver those ASAP. -I have contacted Narragansett Pest Control, and they will be going out tomorrow to assess and treat for whatever they find. Summer ants are commen in Narragansett, but mice are unacceptable and will be dealt with immediately. -Thank you for the new shower curtain. We are reliant on the tenants and housekeeping staff to let us know when things are not up to par, and appreciate your feedback. -We did deliver a recycling bin to you early the following morning (left in the driveway so as not to wake you), but you may not have seen it. Obviously, a poor review is very disappointing for us, and we will redouble our efforts to make our house as welcoming as possible. We will also discuss this with our housekeeping team so that things that need to be replaced can be dealt with in a timely manner.
