Michele responded promptly and was a pleasure to deal with. The property is older, but each of us loved having our own bedrooms. Beds were comfy! The indoor and outdoor shower worked well for us. Great water pressure! One car was parked outside. The other two, along the waterfront, a couple of blocks away. Very easily accessible. LOVED Gooseberry Beach. $20 charge, but beautiful beach, changing rooms, rest room and snack bar. A car is necessary to reach the beach and also to head into the "action" of downtown Newport. We spent our time exploring and catching up over cards at the kitchen table with drinks. We did think the home could be cleaner, but it acted as our base and was spacious. We would consider renting it again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Michele's Potter Street home! It is spacious, comfortable and fully stocked. Anything we needed was there for us!

The location is great! On a quiet street with just a short walk to loads of restaurants and shopping. We plan on going back to this house for our New Port trip next year!!!

Terrific Home in a Terrific Location

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting homes for years now, and this home in Newport is one done right. There's plenty of space in the home for folks to lounge around, including 4 bedrooms that are bigger than you'd expect in a cottage neighborhood. The living room and dining room are vast, making entertaining easy, and the kitchen is large and well-stocked. The backyard is a great spot for grilling and lawn games. The location is terrific. It's just far enough away from all the buzz that you can enjoy a quiet day, and just close enough that with less than a mile's walk and you're in the middle of everything. The perfect balance.
