Overview

About the property

This two bedroom apartment is just blocks from Easton's Beach and Bellevue Avenue shopping, restaurants and museums. Set in the quiet 'Top of the Hill' neighborhood of stately Victorians, this rental offers 1000 square feet of light and airy living space with off street parking, separate entry and side yard. This property was completely renovated in 2008 and air conditioning was installed in 2014. Park your car and stroll into town, where you can take advantage of the trolley car system to get you to any of the local attractions.

Things to do: Newport has a wealth of outdoor activities, but rainy days can be fun too. There is excellent sailing in the harbor; you can rent small sailboats at Sail Newport or enjoy a sunset cruise on some of the larger yachts. Kayaks are available for rent down on Thames street to take out in the harbor or to some of the inlets off Ocean Drive. Beaches abound along Ocean Drive; Easton's beach (1st) is just 5 blocks from the house and Middletown's beautiful 2nd beach is a short bike or car ride. Hiking and bird watching is available at Norman's Bird Sanctuary and the famed Cliff Walk begins about 5 blocks from the house. Lots of people like to bike the Ocean Dive (8 miles long) or up Indian Avenue along the Sakonnet River. On rainy days, one can visit the mansions along Bellevue Avenue, the Newport Art Museum, Touro Synagogue, Redwood Library, Museum of Yachting or just go shopping on Bellevue or down by the wharfs. If you are a history buff, the Historical Society has walking tours or the owners can lend you an AIA copy of self guided tours. The owners will be glad to recommend the best restaurants depending on your budget. There is a local theater and a cabaret, many art galleries and a movie theater in Washington Square (about a half mile away). Almost every weekend there is a festival or food fair either in Touro Park or down by the yachting center. It is hard to get bored in Newport!

Wonderful house to share

  • 4 of 5

The Goff's home is a very beautifully restored Victorian with a well-designed third-floor apartment. Comfortable and airy it accommodates four people in a great setting, close to Broadway and Bellevue. Our first VRBO and we will probably use the service again.

Very nice 3rd floor apartment. Worked great for our family of 4. Owners are kind and accommodating.

  • 4 of 5

House and property is well kept. Location is within very close driving distance of everything we wanted to see this week. Layout of family room suited our young family well as we could watch tv or movies to unwind or wait out any inclimate weather. Would be a readers paradise.

Nice apartment in a good location.

  • 4 of 5

Cute apartment in good location. The owners obviously have a nice eye for design. Apartment was clean and comfortable. One suggestion would be to upgrade the beds and linens. Otherwise was pretty perfect.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This 19th century Queen Anne house has been lovingly renovated and wonderfully furnished. The owners were gracious and helpful, and the location of the home was excellent as all the amenities of Newport were just a short walk away. Our stay was truly perfect.
