All you hope for in a vacation rental
Far exceeded expectations - so much better than the photos suggest. The kitchen is very well-equipped, and opens up to the dining room, while both open into a sunny, airy living room, with windows on 3 sides. The furniture is comfy and in great shape, as are the beds and bedding. Ready for the beach? Lots of towels, beach chairs and body boards. The host has left thoughtful notes all around the house to answer questions before you ask them. The house is well off the road and quiet. The outdoor shower is a delight and a convenience when coming in from the beach. Clayhead trail head - one of the best hikes on BI - is a short walk from the front door. The generous 2PM check-in and 12PM checkout are also a big plus. If VRBO/Home-away had a greatest hits album, this rental would be on it.
You are very kind to say so and we are very happy that you felt this way. Thank you.
We loved this property. It was private and quiet.
Owner seemed to think of everything vacationer might need while staying on the Island. A lovely property; It was beautifully appointed.
The property was clean and neat. We were able to readily contact the owner with questions or concerns. Also, It was nice to meet the owner and learn about the history of the cottage.
We are glad you were so pleased and comfortable with your stay. It is our sincere pleasure to provide an environment that feels like a home away from home for our renters. This house was built right where my Irish grandfather worked his potato patch and overlooks the pond that he, my grandmother and their ducks loved so well.
Far exceeded our expectations
What a wonderful and relaxing place to stay. We definitely overpacked as there was everything we needed already there! Beach chairs, umbrellas, to bath and beach towels, a variety of spices and everything needed to cook or even BAKE! Games and cards, fans and extra blankets and pillows, shade on the back deck, plenty of seating on the front deck. Set back always for the upmost relaxation yet just a walk to the beach or clay head trails and minutes away from all the shops and restaurants. Couldn’t have picked a better spot. We all enjoyed our stay!
Thank you. You are very kind. Very glad you enjoyed your stay.
A slice of heaven
This is a wonderful home. We've stayed in many rentals over the years, and while others were enjoyable, they felt like rentals. This felt like home. Everything we needed was provided. Perhaps more importantly, we felt welcomed. Peter contacted us soon after our arrival to ensure all was well, and there were little notes throughout the house to help us know the best routines to follow or just to welcome or amuse us. We also loved the location of the place. While Block Island is magical , and we have enjoyed it before, the house was located within walking distance of Clay Head Preserve, which we hadn't explored before and fell in love with it. The beach there is rocky and not great for swimming, but it is also less popular than the island's sandy beaches, and we loved having it to ourselves. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone.
Cozy, clean, and comfortable--everything we need on Block Island. The property manager is a pleasure to deal with.
Home away from home.
A great place to stay and relax on the island. Everything was perfect.
Block Island is a seven mile by three mile island. By car, everything is easily reachable. Parking is free. Many great hiking trails to beaches, bluffs, lighthouses, harbors and sweeping views of the ocean.
