About John Pitts

The house is owned by my three sisters and me, but I am the principal contact on VRBO. I am a book publishing professional living in New York City. My sisters live in Providence, Boston and Woodstock, VT. We grew up in Providence and summered in Little Compton. We all return to Little Compton year-round, especially in the summer. It's truly a rarity in the northeast: unspoiled, unaffected, easy going living in a farming/summer community surrounded by water.

John Pitts purchased this house in 1987

Why John Pitts chose Rhode Island Coastal

Surrounded by stone walls, woods and pasture, the house is serene and private. Depending on the time of year, the property is visited by deer, coyote, fox, rabbits, skunks, raccoons, wild turkey, all sorts of songbirds, hawks, falcons, owls, and hummingbirds. Close to the town Commons and beaches.

What makes this house unique

Peace, tranquility, privacy, rural ease and simplicity, glorious climate, natural beauty, flora and fauna, history.

perfect & comfortable for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Not too far from the wonderful beaches of Little Compton and at the end of a quiet road, this house is large and very comfortable for two families with kids. The deck and outdoor shower are great; the gardens out back are beautiful and peaceful. If you are looking for a fancy rental, this might not be the place for you, but it was just right for our extended family--in fact, it felt like staying at a comfy family home. And one bonus is the incredible array of books...

Owner's Response: Glad you liked it, Jessica, and always happy to have you stay in our home. I think one of the great satisfactions of spending time in Little Compton is rediscovering the joys of device-free pleasures, like reading. To that end, the house is well-stocked with books, catering to a broad range of tastes, as I hope you discovered. Looking forward to hosting you again. The home library is always acquiring new titles! -John

We had a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Little Compton each summer for my whole life, so I came at the visit from that perspective. There were many things we loved about the house: the big, well-equipped kitchen; the smart layout of the house; the deck and calming backyard; the overall quiet that came with being at the end of the road and out of the way; the central location; the big garage from which to launch your various "Little Compton activities; the fact that the house overall was well-equipped and everything was easy to find; the outdoor shower (a Sakonnet staple), etc. There was a really nice airiness to the house. Open a few windows, get a couple of fans going, and your all set. We gravitated to the deck, and spent a lot of time out there. Excellent. :)

great house!

  • 5 of 5

We used this property for a week to house grown children with their youngsters. The house is comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped, and located on a quiet cul de sac. Everyone loved it.

October in Little Compton

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were fortunate to spend time at this comfortable, lovely home. From the moment you enter the spacious and well supplied kitchen, you know that you will enjoy this home. The bedroom and full bathroom on the first floor are very convenient. Then there are two more very spacious bedrooms and another full bath on the second floor. The owners have made sure to include any and all items that you might need. The amenities are all there, as well, but the comfort and coziness of the home stands out the most! We had wonderful walks around the charming neighborhood and you are conveniently close to the Commons, the center of Little Compton. However, you probably will want to stay at this home and enjoy the deck and spacious backyard.

The Owners were accommodating, helpful and very responsive.

This is a Home to enjoy all the seasons in Little Compton!
