About the property

See VRBO #1284546 for reviews, Private Cottage, Kitchen, Sleeps 2-4, 1 Bath


Our GARDEN COTTAGE, a natural shingle free-standing structure with off street parking, cozy and private, is in the middle of all the famous attractions that draw people to Newport; the beautifully landscaped MANSIONS along BELLEVUE AVENUE, the unmatched beauty of our CLIFF WALK and our 10 MILE OCEAN DRIVE, down the street is a small private beach available to walkers, swimmers and sun bathers. I have always loved Newport and have found it amazingly beautiful, relaxing and exciting. Recently, Newport was listed on ABC GOOD MORNING AMERICA as one of the 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN AMERICA. Imaging living here! You will enjoy watching their news video. The URL for Good Morning America's Video can be found in a Google search using key words GMA's 10 Most Beautiful Places in America.

With a full kitchen on the first floor, our GARDEN COTTAGE allows you the choice of cooking your own meals or dining out in one of our many wonderful area restaurants. The second floor is ONE LARGE ROOM with a queen bed, convertible couch, sitting area, television, dvd player, small library, full bath, skylights and views of ALMY POND. This Cottage Apartment is rented for a seven night minimum stay during the summer months and monthly from September through May.

The BEACH, the CLIFF WALK, the MANSIONS and SALVE REGINA UNIVERSITY CAMPUS are all within two blocks of us. DOWNTOWN NEWPORT is 3/4 mile to the north.

Conveniently located for you to enjoy the summer's annual NEWPORT MUSIC FESTIVAL, NEWPORT JAZZ AND FOLK FESTIVALS. Stay with us, ride bikes and avoid the traffic. Come and surf, swim, fish, bike, paddle board, sail or just relax. Just spending the day sitting on the rocks by the water on the Cliff Walk or Ocean Drive can be a delightfully, relaxing experience.

Enjoy our yard, and sleep peacefully in our quiet location when you return from your escapades each evening.

About Lou Puerini

This is the story of our mom, Marie Puerini. In the past few years her health has declined and, since December, 2013 we have been assisting her with the management of her property. She passed away on December 14, 2017. With deep appreciation and love for her classy style we hope to carry on for her.

Here is her story:

'My sister was many years my senior and was already living in Newport when I was born. Needless to say, Newport was a completely different town when I was growing up; smaller, less inhabited, no tourists, no restaurants, few stores, no style, and lots of handsome Navy men. As a little girl, I came on weekends with my mother and fell in love with the town.

Many years later I bought my first house here, gathered my children and never looked back. My youngest son wanted to open a small restaurant when he was 19 years old, so I left a very successful business and we became partners. That was 36 years ago, and the restaurant, now called Ida's,, became very successful.'

Lou Puerini purchased this cottage in 1990

What makes this cottage unique

My house and my Garden Apartment are on Almy Court, with views from the second floors that encompass Almy Pond. I chose this house by driving by one day many years ago and falling in love with it. It is a quiet area, lovely for walking. Just a few blocks down is Reject Beach, open to the public. It is part of Bailey's Beach, which is a private beach for the 'Summer Set'.
