Great house, owner excellent to deal with, beautiful sunsets, off beaten track

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week in Block Island. We LOVED this house. First the owner was EXCELLENT to deal with. Crystal responded quickly to all my email questions and went above and beyond in making some adjustments to make my 83 year old mother's stay more comfortable. We had vacationed in Block Island years ago and were so happy to return after a 30 year hiatus. Block Island is still as lovely as I remember. The house is located on the West Side of the Island. A good ways from town - so a car would be useful. It is walking distance to Dorie's Cove which we did almost every evening to see the spectacular sunsets. We did lots of great bike rides and walking right from the house. I liked that we were not in "town"; it was so quiet in the evenings and the night sky was beautiful. It was a nice 25 minute bike ride to Mohegan Bluffs as well as Fred Benson beach or town.

The house is EXTREMELY clean. I have rented several VRBO's and have not found a house more clean than this one. The house was also well stocked with teas, coffee, paper products, laundry and dish detergent, garbage bags, etc. One downside to house is you have to clean and bring your garbage to the transfer station. It wasn't a big deal for us - but could be for someone who is just looking to stay and leave without removing garbage and cleaning. The house was very well decorated and we felt quite at home. We also were grateful to be able to bring our dog with us. He loved sitting on the deck watching runners and cyclists go by. The house was great for my husband, me and my mom. (and dog loved it too! - if he wasn't looking out over deck he was looking out the lower level window in the bedroom) Over the weekend, my 20 something kids joined us and they had the whole downstairs which has twin beds and sleep sofa as well as sitting area with TV and full bath. We had a nice gas grill outside and picnic table. The house would be great for couples vacationing together as well as families/extended family. Three full baths - with the bath on the main level having walk in shower which was helpful for my mother who has trouble getting in and out of bathtub shower.

Would highly recommend this house - just don't pick the same week I want to rent!

Wonderful vacation, great house and very nice owners!

  • 5 of 5

I have been spending summers in Block Island for over 45 years with my family while growing up in CT and my husband and I have continued the tradition with our 4 children who are now teenagers and young adults. Since my parents sold their house 5 years ago, we have been renting but weren't happy with the houses we rented until two years ago when we found this wonderful house to rent. This was the first house we rented on the west side of the island and the sunsets are amazing. The place is clean, stocked with cleaning supplies and great kitchen needs. The house is updated, roomy with a nice kitchen and living room area and three perfect sized bedrooms for the six of us. The three full updated bathrooms are a plus for our family and none of them have that damp feeling you get from some houses on the island that we have stayed at. We love the big deck off the kitchen with great views of the sunsets and a great place to relax after coming back from a day spent at the beach. The house is a 10-15 drive into town and a beautiful walk to New Harbor. We are so happy to be able to bring our two dogs with us on vacation and they also enjoy relaxing on the deck. The owners have always been responsive to any emails with questions we may have had. and check in to make sure we arrived safely and that everything was fine with the house. We are very relieved to have found the perfect house for our Block Island vacation and will continue to rent this house yearly.

Perfect Week on Block Island

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were very pleased with our recent stay with our two 11 year boys. As stated in the other reviews, the house was clean, well stocked and perfectly located just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the old harbor yet close enough for a bike ride to the old harbor or walk to the new harbor (my boys' favorite place was the Oar restaurant with beautiful sunsets on the harbor... and sushi!). Our best memories will be our short walks to Dory's cove beach to catch the sunset and sitting on the porch watching the bikers go by after a long day at the beach. Crystal was very accommodating and helpful with our arrival and departure. One note to future renters... Book early! we couldn't get our car on the ferry until Tuesday, but then again thinking back it made for a nice trip walking and biking around.

Wonderful vacation and great owners

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently enjoyed a relaxing vacation at this beautiful location. The house was spotless, well-stocked with paper goods, detergent for dishes, dishwasher, and laundry, condiments, and everything needed for cooking. We enjoyed the nearby biking, hiking, walks on the beach, and horseback riding. Located on the west side of the island, trips to Old Harbor restaurants and stores were 5- to 10-minutes by car or 20- 25-minutes by bike. The owners were great to deal with, and so thoughtful to leave us fresh flowers on our arrival and chocolates on Easter. April is definitely the off-season and very quiet. When combined with such natural beauty, this peacefulness was rejuvenating to all of us, including a teen and a pre-teen.

We have been to Block Island many times but this was our first week long visit. This house provided us with everything we needed for a home away from home. The house was clean, well maintained, with plenty of room. The kitchen had everything you needed, plus all the extras. The house was a short ride to Old Harbor and the main public beaches, which is exactly what we were looking for. Overall we had a relaxing, enjoyable week and we will come back to this home again.
