Great Location, Great Property, Encompasses what Block Island is all about....

  • 5 of 5

Had an incredible stay on Block Island in this perfectly located and spacious home. Our family had a number of dinners at the large table in the kitchen as well as outside on the deck. There were tv's in all the rooms so the kids were able to come in from long days at the beach and relax for a bit. The place was clean, the rooms were air-conditioned and the property is stunning. It was a comfortable stay and I would definitely return.

Property is worn. Needs a complete remodel and update. Good location BUT!

  • 2 of 5

The property needs to be fixed. The TV's don't work, the dish washer is falling apart, the grills were broken, we ran out of gas for the stove and hot water, we showed up on Saturday as expected and they thought we were coming Sunday. I will say, the extended family on property were exceptional. Really helpful. Thank god! The location is perfect. The island is as fun and beachy as you will find. The restaurants are great. We had a blast even with less than exceptional accommodations. We will go back to The Block, just not at the Burgess House.

Location! Location! Location!

We walked into the house and it was spotless and smelling fresh! So clean and bright! We had a group of 8 adults for a wedding and the house was spacious enough for everyone to spread out. We enjoyed the grill and sat out on the sunny deck overlooking the large yard. We could walk everywhere - it was a 5 minute walk into town. Daniel was a pleasure to rent from, he had lots to share about the island. His home was well maintained and beautiful!

We had such an amazing time on Block Island. The house was perfect. Very clean and we were able to hang out on the porch in the sun and walk to town/ beach! Thanks for letting us stay!
