Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Narragansett

4 Spacious Bedrooms and 2 Full Bathrooms - Sleeps 8.

Pack your bags and come to Great Island! Linens, beach chairs, beach towels and beach toys are provided!

Check out availability in June and early July! June is a great time to visit - summer is just beginning and the rates are low. There is plenty to do - spend time at the beach, explore Block Island and try some of the restaurants around town, many with al fresco dining. There are ballroom dance lessons every Wednesday night year round at the Towers in the Pier as well as live theater all summer at nearby Theater by the Sea. Early July is also a great time to be in Narragansett. Celebrate the 4th of July! Fireworks are held at several nearby locations. Take in the RI Philharmonic Orchestra's concert on the beach held the week after the 4th - an awesome gathering of groups of friends and families picnicking on Narragansett Beach listening to the sounds of the orchestra while the sun sets. Don't forget to pack the wine!

Enjoy the Southern Tip of Rhode Island on Great Island in scenic Narragansett. Walk to village of Galilee, where you can catch the Block Island ferry or purchase lobsters from the lobster boats on the nearby docks, go to the beach and visit shops, restaurants, ice cream shops and fish markets.

This spacious, smoke-free home is clean and comfortable with all amenities (all linens are provided) and a huge yard (double lot) with large patio - great for BBQ's and lawn games. There is a new, large outdoor shower. There is parking for eight cars. There are two spacious bedrooms and a full bath (tub) on the first floor and two spacious bedrooms and a full bath (large shower) on the second floor. Home has a new gas grill, new air conditioners and new microwave. There are television in the bedrooms and in the living area, cable and wifi access and relatively new washer/dryer. Kitchen is fully equipped with a new stove and new dishwasher (pictures not yet updated) and stocked with basic pantry items.

Enjoy evenings on the patio cooking on the new grill, sipping wine and relaxing. Water access to Salt Pond is available within walking distance where you can drop your raft or kayak. Salt Pond is also great for clamming - dig for your dinner!

The home is located on a quiet road, convenient to Roger Wheeler Beach/Sand Hill Cove (1 mile), Salty Brine Beach (walk), Scarborough Beach (2 miles) and the Block Island Ferry (walk). Visit the wonderful restaurants, do some shopping and walk the sea wall. Attend events that happen in the town all summer long. Visit the lighthouse at Point Judith and walk onto the jetty to see the sun set over the water. Golf and tennis are nearby. World famous Newport, RI, the sailing capital of the world, is just 25 minutes away- visit the Gilded Mansions and the Tennis Hall of Fame.

Children welcome, no pets and no smoking, please

Wonderful Great Island Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed staying in this cottage. The comfortable, well-appointed home provided everything we needed. The yard, with its patio, table, and chairs, was the perfect spot for a morning coffee or cooling off at the end of a hot day.

Wonderful! We really enjoyed Great Island.

Kathy's home was very comfortable and very well stocked with everyday essentials. Cotton sheets and lots of towels, including bath towels. It made the vacation stress free.

Good location, clean, great for families

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to pick this cute vacation rental June 18-25, 2016. We were looking to rent a property that wouldn't break the bank but large enough for my husband and I, our 2 young children, my Mother, and my brother and sister in law. It was enough space for all of us. The property was very clean. The backyard was very large which was great for our kids. We also loved the location. It is in a quiet family neighborhood with hardly any traffic. It is also walking distance to Salty Brine beach, the shops in Galilee, and the Block island ferry. We drove to Roger Wheeler beach (5 minutes away) which the kids liked because there was a playground and Scarborough beach (10 minutes away) which had larger waves. We were fortunate to have great weather all week but Kathy had given us a list of things to do with kids if it rained. A few times, we used the fresh water access down the street to kayak around Great island. I would recommend this the property to anyone looking for an relaxing week in Narragansett. We can't wait to return next year. Thank you Kathy!

The property was in a perfect location to the town and beach. The house was very clean and the owner provided excellent customer service, leaving detailed instructions. We've vacationed in Rhode Island every year for 20 years and this property ranks in our top 3 as far as cleanliness, comfort and location. We walked to the beach, to the Block Island Ferry and to the restaurants in town. We would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives!
