Photos and Description of this New Shoreham holiday house

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Located 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island, Block Island has been called 'one of the last great places' by the Nature Conservancy. To get here, you must arrive by boat or plane. The Island is shaped like a pork chop and it is 7 miles long and three miles wide at it’s thickest point. The Rendezvous House is centrally located so nothing is very far from home.

The house features an open living room, dining room, and a well-stocked kitchen area perfect for entertaining guests. The dining table seats 10 and the kitchen sports a breakfast bar. The house sleeps up to 15 people, spread out amongst the 4 bedrooms. With 2 full baths, an outdoor shower, and a large laundry area, no one should have trouble bumping into each other! Outside, there is a wrap-around deck for additional 'living space' and 360-degrees of beautiful views.

On Block Island, you can enjoy participating in a wide variety of activities or lay back and enjoy the views. Water fun includes fishing, boating, and swimming in the ocean or 350 ponds located throughout the island. On land, you can bike, hike, scoot around on a moped, bird-watch, or relax by shopping and dining in town.

About The Owner

My wife and I grew up in New Jersey and reside at the Jersey shore.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Why The Owner chose Rhode Island

We built our home in this location because our lot abuts a large tract of Nature Conservancy fields and woods. It also has a nice view of Crescent beach and the bluffs beyond.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy walking the nature trails that cross our land and go all the way to Rodman Hollow and the beach at Black Rock. We also love to sit at the beach with our good friends until long after most of the beach goers have left.

The Rendevous House was perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation for our group/family, for our Nephew's Wedding weekend getaway. There was thirteen in our party and each family had more than enough space so we weren't bumping into each other and just enjoy the island. The distance from town was just the right amount, close enough to drive but far enough so you didn't hear all the noise. There is plenty to do at the house or you can just relax if you want to. The owners were available whenever we had questions, and very accommodating. We would recommend this property to everyone.

Awesome Rental!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us (5 couples in their early 30's) rented this house and it was perfect. Although the home could seem ideal for families with children, it accommodated the 10 of us just as well!! Very spacious, close to town, incredible view, clean and with all amenities needed - we were VERY happy with the rental. The owners were also very sweet and easy to deal with. Overall we had a terrific experience and would absolutely rent again -- and hope to!

Perfect for family trip

  • 5 of 5

This was a family trip for mostly 1st time Island visitors, and couldn't have suited us better. Nice view (but not panoramic) of ClayHead and Mansion Beach in the distance. Surrounding hedges created privacy. Owners were very helpful and patient as we navigated the rental process, and made a special trip to the house just before we got there to make a repair. I would definately recommend for any large group. Easy walk to Greenway trails, deer greeted us daily in the driveway.

Second year renting house for week: will do so again

  • 5 of 5

The house is very good for lots of kids who can stay upstairs in the two bedrooms with innumerable beds while adults are noise free downstairs. Plenty of room in kitchen, dining and living area. Has all the necessities covered. Love the view at night of the Newport Bridge.. Town less than 10 minutes away and favorite beach less than 15. We really enjoyed dining outside at the Spring House. Owners easy to work with and daughter local in summer. As long as you don't take our week, I recommend it!

Great house on Block!

  • 5 of 5

Where do we begin?! For the second year in a row we had a fabulous time staying at the Rendezvous House. The house is extremely comfortable, clean, and well equipped with anything you should need. With its large open kitchen/living/deck area you never feel crowded plus the enclosed outdoor shower is the best! The owners are absolutely wonderful to deal with and are extremely attentive/helpful through the entire rental process. Highly recommend this property--we had a great time and will be back!!
