About Joan

We purchased this home 18 yrs ago because the water views were breathtaking It felt magical to wake up to the waves in the morning we originally bought this to be close to newport where we vacationed on long weekends although we still go into town often the best part is just relaxing by the bay and being with family

Joan purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Joan chose Newport and Aquidneck Island

We saw many property's when we were looking but fell in love with the magnificent view the neighborhood is quiet the entire street was once a plantation that was then subdivided into cottages for there families many of these homes have been passed down through the generations we were very fortunate to be able to purchase this

Guestbook comments from the owner


Hi Joan, thanks so much for allowing us to stay at your cottage. I would like to rent again next year if it would be available from July 30th - August 5th . Not sure how you handle that.

The only plus for this property is the view and the living room. The rest is most disappointing.

  • 2 of 5

Living room view 10/10. The rest of this property is 3/10. Too bad. for a few hundred dollars invested it could be a 7/10. We should have paid more attention to the previous reviews! We left after 3 nights out of 7

1. Ants still in kitchenette. $2 in ant poison box wold fix this

2. Downstairs bathroom access from master bath is dangerous with 6" step down to 18" " hole" then step up. Just put a grate in to even it out before someone breaks a hip.

3. Try investing in a $5 shower curtain and $10 in caulking for the shower/tub

4. Bed under sheets in bad shape.

5. We never went up stairs to the 2 bedrooms up there and have no comments.

Best part of the kitchenette was the paper plates and plastic silverware.

We would not recommend this property. ( We have stayed with VRBO on multiple previous occasions and have always been quite pleased, and never disappointed.)

Owner's Response: Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay I know it rained which does bring ants and we always spray but being on the water it sometimes happens the step down to the bathroom is the way house is designed it has never been a problem the bathtub was just totally recorked sorry if you didn't like our taste in shower curtain and sorry you didn't have better weather

Just came back from a return visit for our 3rd time. The home as always was spotless upon our arrival. The furnishings were lovely and comfortable. The water view is just amazing, which is why we return every year. We love it there so much that we already booked it again for next year. I highly recommend this property.
