Best place to stay in Newport!

  • 5 of 5

Gail was in touch with us every step of the way. This made a first time trip to Newport relaxing. This place is a fantastic little get away for a couple or small family. Everything we needed was here. We walked EVERYWHERE which let us enjoy restaurant food and cook whatever we wanted. Favorites: Schooner sailing in the evening, Ocean Drive bike ride, Cliff Walk, St. Mary's Church service, and of course the mansions. Just sitting in the living room with a beautiful breeze and view of the harbor was magnificent!

Fantastic Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Gail was wonderful throughout the booking process, and kept us updated through our stay in Newport. The Boat House is very unique and perfectly sized. We walked into town everyday and the sunsets were spectacular! The park across the street was nice as well. Thanks to Gail our summer birthday vacation in Newport was a success.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a family of 4. Great location and all the comforts of home. Loved sipping coffee in the morning while watching the world go by. Dog walkers and families use the beautiful park across the street. Quick walk to town with great restaurants, friendly people in a beautiful town. Can't wait to come back. Gail was most accommodating and had great suggestions. Enjoy Newport!

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage last minute for a family get-away - Gail was incredibly kind and responsive to us throughout the entire process, even giving us helpful suggestions of places to eat, etc. The cottage is perfect in terms of location and comfort for a family. Very clean, lots of extra blankets, towels, etc. We could walk into town for dinner, even in bad weather in December, but it was quiet and felt private. The park across the street would be great for families with kids. It provided the perfect space for our family of four (kids ages 12 and 13) - we'd definitely recommend it and book it again.

Perfect cottage to enjoy all Newport has to offer

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great little waterfront cottage. It's 2 blocks from NY YC, so very convenient if you are visiting the club. The property is close enough to the action in Newport to walk to it, but far enough away to have some peace and quiet. The bedroom set up is perfect for a family of four and it has a nice kitchen and living / dining area on a separate floor. The views from the front of the house are spectacular over the harbour. The owner's friend who looks after the property is very helpful. Highly recommend to anyone traveling as a couple or family of 3-4.
