This beautiful beach house is steps to the ocean and a short walk to the beach and Galilee. It was recently updated with new flooring and furniture. It is a three level house and has great ocean breezes and great views from all sides. There is a huge yard, outdoor shower and two large decks. It is a great place to share with other families and relax on the quiet island while smelling the ocean air.

Great Labor Day Weekend!
We were a large group - 7 adults 3 children and 1 baby. The house accommodated us beautifully; there are 3+ bathrooms plus an outdoor shower and that made life very easy. Three separate levels and two decks provide plenty of living space to stretch out in. Keep in mind there are two sets of stairs to climb to get to the kitchen, as it, and the living room, is on the top floor. So if there are elderly or mobility-restricted folks in your party you should consider this. And if you have toddlers, bring a gate or two!
The neighborhood is quiet, and it is but a short walk (about a mile, maybe less) to Point Judith and the Block Island ferry. There's also Salty Brine Beach and beyond to walk to and on.
The only negative, and that is why I only gave 4 stars instead of 5, was that the dishwasher was out of order. With the full house of people it was disappointing but I understand repairing or replacing it on the holiday weekend may not have been possible.
Debra, the owner, is wonderful to communicate with and as others have said, is quite laid-back ... in short, we would rent this again from her without question!
Thank you Debra ...!
Perfect spot for a weekend getaway
The house was perfect for our mini reunion. The rooms and beds were all in great shape along with the other amenities. It was also a great spot with a 5 minute drive to multiple beaches. We will definitely be using this listing in the future.
Awesome house in a perfect location!
The house was a perfect fit for our group. We spent hours sitting on the upper deck enjoying the sun and ocean breeze. Narragansetts beautiful beaches are a short drive or bike ride away and Galilee (one of RI's largest fishes ports) is within walking distance. I would absolutely recommend this house and look forward to renting it again in the future.
Lovely beach long weekend
The top floor was a really nice layout and a perfect hangout and eating area. We were all able to have our own space as well as enjoy each other’s company. Also the location is wonderful! We had an amazing long weekend at this house!
Crisp and clean is not how I would describe the property, more like used and abused.
The biggest problem was the very pungent order in the the kitchen. It smelled badly of must and mildew.
The amenities for the house were also lacking. We were told that we had to provide our own sheets for the beds and towels. We were coming in from out of town that was a massive inconvenience. I mean come on, who goes to a hotel and expects to bring their own towels and sheets.
The umbrella on the outdoor table was inoperable. We jury rigged it to at least open. Most of the deck chairs were worn to the point of being threadbare. There was a table on the first floor deck that was smashed and turned over on its side.
The game room in the garage was a nightmare. It consisted of a pool table covered in mold and a fridge with buckets of dead clams. The outdoor shower was inoperable. There were no beach chairs or other things to bring to the beach. I've rented many beach houses over the years and this is not how it's done.
I think the worst part of this experience was when I contacted the owner all she did was forward my complaint onto the property manager and said that she had two more rentals to get through. She also mentioned that she has not been to the rental all year. The house is suffering from neglect. I would not recommend renting.
Spacious house a mile from Galilee!
This was our second stay at this house. There were 4 adults and 5 kids and we had plenty of room to spread out. The 3 and a half baths and a washer/dryer are great with the kids. The house doesn't have air conditioning, but there was always a nice breeze so we were fine with a few fans. There were updates done since the last time we stayed which was nice. We loved walking into Galilee at night for ice cream and sitting out on the deck to enjoy the view. The owner is friendly and easy to communicate with. We had a great time!
