About Michael & Terri Flynn

Michael & Terri Flynn purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Michael & Terri Flynn chose Newport East
Private, but close to all, this Cottage unit is set back from the street and has a great sense of elbow space, as it looks onto the neighbor's open back yard. Off-street parking is a plus, with full-size appliances, laundry and both TV's have DVD players. There's a spot to store bicycles or surfboards & a pergola to kick back under.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is a perfect unit for you: reasonably priced (with A/C!) in a safe, residential neighborhood area that is still close to all. You will fall in love with the sunsets over the pond: the pinks & silhouettes can be breathtaking. This really is a clean & comfortable Cottage. We would not rent it if we, too, would not stay there. The finishing touches were determined by 4 out of 5 of us living there for a week & making a long list of what we would need. We now make that available to you & hope you don't over-pack!
Minimum age of primary renter:18

Great location near Newport, perfect for couples and small kid(s)
We were looking for a central spot near Newport and the mansions, Cliff Walk, and beaches. This small cottage turned out to be perfect. It's three rooms in a row with a full bath off one side of the kitchen (we stayed in unit B, the first one). It's a single building split into two cottages. Pictures made it look small inside but it was compact yet roomy. Perfect for a couple but small kids could take the sofa bed. Best part (maybe?): The stacked washer dryer to one side in the kitchen.
Aside from being a short drive to the mansions and Cliff Walk, we really enjoyed the 10 minute walk to one beach and a comfortable twenty or thirty minute walk over a hill to the second and third beaches. The latter walk is really pretty past the school then along the undeveloped shoreline.
We also were able to walk out for Flo's and later for pizza. There's a gas station nearby on the main road down the hill. The neighborhood is very quiet despite being high above and one street back from the often busy main road.
The owners, Terri and Michael, also were really helpful but not in the way. And the process of renting the space and going in was clearly laid out so there were no real questions and no problems. At the risk of not having this available the next time we visit Newport, I'd say this is the perfect spot to visit the nearby Newport, the winery up the road, and day trips out to the Cape. It worked very well for us.
Very nice stay and close to everything. We walked everywhere. Everything we needed was provided at the cottage. Can't wait to go back.
I really enjoyed having so many things available to us! I especially enjoyed having the amenities, kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer, and the outdoor area. The beach umbrella and chairs were very nice as we were able to take a break from the sunshine at the beach. The weather was fabulous during our stay!
It was really nice to have the little things provided we may have forgotten along the way, bandaids, toothbrush, sunscreen, bags, washing machine soap, and bounce.
We were very busy visiting for the majority of the stay, but a home away from home to go to was a nice feeling.
I left a couple suggestions for the owners in regard to comfortability as a family of four, but the cottage served our vacation needs overall.
Quaint and within walking distance to beach & restaurants.
The cottage had everything we needed. Terri & Michael were wonderful to work with and made sure we had all we needed.
We would definitely recommend it and hope to visit again sometime.
Clean comfortable beach house
We spent 10 days here in August. The house suited us very well; it is simple, clean, peaceful and quiet. It is older style beach cottage with attractive wooden ceilings and pleasant ambiance. We enjoyed the large garden with its chairs and picnic table for outdoor eating. The owner is friendly and thoughtful, providing many useful little extras...cleaning supplies, sunblock, toiletries, kitchen items- coffee filters, etc. Washer/dryer, wifi, AC all there if you need them and the kitchen is well equipped. The location is a short walk to the beach - no need to drive and pay for a day's parking- and a pleasant cycle into town. We walked down early in the morning and had the whole beach to ourselves on several occasions. We would book again if we went back to Newport. Thanks for being a welcoming host, Terri, it was nice to meet you.
We really enjoyed our stay at Terri & Michael's cottage! It was very clean & comfortable and met our needs. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend it!
The Newport, Rhode Island area is our Backyard - Come Play! :-)
Walk to restaurants: Flo's, Ticket's, Atlantic Grille, and more.
Close to Cliff Walk & Bellevue Avenue/Thames Street in one direction and Second & Third Beaches, Sachuest Point & Norman Bird Sanctuary in the other!
