Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Easton's Point - Upper Deck

Spacious Loft 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

'Bass Rocks Upper Deck' is located in a large historic carriage house which has been remodeled for 3 apartments, with privacy in mind. It has one of the best locations in the Northeast. We are only 800 feet from Sachuest Beach, also known as Second Beach, featuring some of the best surfing on the East Coast. The more than a mile long beach is perfect for sun bathing and all kinds of fun in the sun including kayaking, fishing and boating. Newport with its fantastic shopping, night life and restaurants is only a five-minute drive or a short bike ride away.

This three-level apartment is private and unique. There are two bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a king bed with a private bathroom with shower and whirlpool tub. The other bedroom has a queen bed. There is also a second bathroom with shower. There is a loft with a convertible sofa which lays flat into a 48' x 73' bed. There is an additional small cot. The apartment features original hardwood floors, a beautiful kitchen with cherry cabinets and granite counter tops. The spiral stair goes up to an observation deck from which you can see breathtaking views of the ocean and Sachuest point. A deck off the living room allows wonderful outdoor grilling/dining. The apartment has a laundry room, cable, WiFi and off-street parking.

About Alexis Finlay

I am a new owner but will maintain the same management services and high standards. We aim to exceed your expectations. .

Alexis Finlay purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Alexis Finlay chose Middletown

Everything you could want is here. The ocean, the excitement of Newport. The changing of the seasons. just a five minute walk to the surf. Purgatory Chasm with its exciting rock formation is right next door.We love to bike around Newport and hike around Sachuest point and the Norman bird sanctuary. The events that take place here during the summer are too numerous to count - every kind of music festival you can imagine, film festival, tall ships festival, chowder cook-offs to name just a few. New ferry to Providence takes 45 minutes to explore fun restaurants and shopping.

What makes this apartment unique

This is the best location on the east coast. The beach is just a five minute walk away. Downtown Newport with its shopping, nightlife and fantastic restaurants is just a five minute drive or short bike ride away. So many things to see and do like biking around Newport and hiking around Sachuest point and the Norman bird sanctuary. Of course the beach is right here with all that it has to offer - basking in the sun, surfing in the waves, swimming in the cool water, sailing, windsurfing - you name it. The events that take place here during the summer are too numerous to count - every kind of music festival you can imagine, film festival, tall ships festival, chowder cook-offs to name just a few. Can't think of a better vacation spot in the northeast.

Spend the day at the beach, afternoons sightseeing or shopping, and nights at lively restaurants and clubs on the harbor front. The property is within walking distance to Cliff Walk, Newport’s Tennis Hall of Fame, and the Carosel at Easton's Beach . This home is one to three miles from Bellevue Avenue mansions and Yachting Center and four miles from Newport Country Club, Bailey’s Beach, New York Yacht Club, Ida Lewis Yacht Club and Sail Newport

Bass Rocks by the Sea is in a perfect location to be away from the hectic traffic yet close enough to Bellevue Avenue for mansions and shopping, America's Cup Avenue for wharf and yacht area, and nearby conveniences and many restaurants. Newport is known as 'America's First Summer Resort,' and is the home of The International Tennis Hall of Fame, Newport Preservation Society and Newport Mansions,

Labor Day Weekend Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This is our group's 5th year renting this luxury loft and we are looking forward to keeping the tradition alive for years to come! Alexis is always a gracious and accommodating host and even responded to a question we had within an hour on a busy holiday weekend. The house itself is immaculate but our favorite feature is the hot tub and lounge area. There is always something to do in Newport, this year we attended our first polo match in Portsmouth which was a quick Uber ride away. We highly recommend staying here for your Newport adventure!

A Real Find!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family living overseas for many years and often rent long term in the summer as a place to relax and re-connect with family stateside. We committed to this property for four weeks, sight unseen, and it far exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect, walkable to Second beach, and a short drive or bike ride to Newport downtown. I liked that you could leave behind the bustling of Newport for this quiet little seaside neighborhood....the best of both worlds. The house was fairly well equipped, and quite comfortable. The home will sleep four people in the two bedrooms (the master being very large) and there are two beds in a loft for kids. It has a large kitchen, large living area, a TV area, a deck, and a widows walk at the peak, where I could be found every morning and evening, having a coffee or a beer. Great views! Also, we made regular use of the pool and hot tub, which was a great place to unwind after the beach. We met the owners, and they were very accommodating, even offering our kids their personal bikes as they were both working in town. One note for improvement would be: dressers in the loft, for a better organized space (our two teens made a mess with all their clothes out and around). Overall though, we had a fabulous month here at Bass Rocks and would love to return again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. Co-incidentally, I did put wardrobe and dresser in the loft area about 1 month ago as I realized the problem when visiting you there!! Best Wishes Alexis

Beautiful property with lovely views! Even better in person!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the condo for 1 week in early June. The weather was perfect and the views from the condo are beautiful, just a short walk to the beach, everything you needed was included to cook out on the deck or inside. Beach chairs and towels were there, all kinds of things you'd need for cooking and keeping your food. I loved the decor, it was a very relaxing and welcoming home and we all felt very relaxed. We had 6 people (2 adults and 4 kids) and we had more than enough room. The loft which had 2 twin beds was a large space and with kids...and sleeping bags, you could easily and comfortably fit more people. The photos are nice, but to experience this place personally is completely different. It's very spacious and you have views from 3 levels! I can't say enough. We also had a lovely welcome tote which had a lovely assortment of items from maps of the area to locally made beer and snacks to sample. Alexis was kind and responsive and easy to work with. We were extremely satisfied and are thinking about making this our summer "go to" retreat for our family. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!

Unique property with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved staying at this unique property. Spacious and well-kept, well-stocked kitchen, bathrooms were great, and the view from the top deck was lovely. Good location, close proximity to beach. Alexis was prompt in responding to questions, and the welcome bag was a really nice touch. We hope to come back to this area in the future and would definitely stay here again.
