2 Bedroom Cottage
About Carla O'Brien
As undergraduates at the University of Rhode Island, my husband and I fell in love with salt life. Years later, we knew we wanted to raise our family with that familiar appreciation for life by the sea. We took a drive into Jerusalem one day and landed on our cottage. We are only the second owners. It was built in 1939 and was passed down until we purchased it in 2004. We plan to do the same.
Carla O'Brien purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Carla O'Brien chose Jerusalem
Jerusalem is a quintessential beach community and fishing village. It is remarkably preserved in time and without all the hussle and bussle of urban living. The Cottage is perfect for us as a couple and for our family. As urbane architectural preservationists, we were committed to it's tranquility as well as it's charm.
What makes this Cottage unique
For the beach life, the cottage is well planned out. It offers a wide open floor plan for kitchen and living space. You can spread out and settle in for a meal, a movie or a game of cards. It's all one floor, so easy to keep. The outdoor shower is very private and always yields hot water. The neighbors are extremely friendly and very hospitable. There is plenty of parking for your cars and day guests. Just bring your water toys, beach chairs and a suit.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Perfect girls weekend
Carla’s property was a perfect little beach cottage for a weekend away. 6 of us girls fit comfortably, and had tons of room to hang out. The property was clean, and kitchen supplies were fully stocked. The sun room and back porch were also a great addition that added some extra space. We would definitely book this house again!
Perfect family vacation
The house is simply charming. We were 2 adults and 4 teens and there was never a moment that we felt crowded. We cooked breakfast and dinner every day and enjoyed some amazing fresh seafood at Jim's Dock, literally walking distance. Location was outstanding. The beach is right across the street and we explored the pond with our small inflatable. Everyone in the area was friendly and helpful. The house has all of the amenities anyone would need. Woke up and went to sleep hearing the sounds of the ocean! thanks so much
Only issue was condition of screen on back door. Otherwise, lovely!
The house was great and just steps from the beach. It was well stocked with EVERYTHING that you would need. The back deck and yard is some what private and you can hear the waves just sitting out there. The dryer was a big plus. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing vacation in this perfect cottage.
Comfortable, bright, very clean, a genuine beach cottage.
I went mid-Sept and it was quiet enough that I could hear the waves all day and night. Lovely sea breezes through the cottage's many windows. Bunnies in the back yard, egrets in the marshes. Be aware, if you're wedded to media: the cable is bare-bones basic and neither the dvd nor cd player work well. There is wi-fi, though.
Good beach cottage
Found this cottage online when looking up places to stay while in rhode island . It was smarter staying at cottage than a hotel room. Typical beach cottage not luxery but it's clean and that's all that matters. 2 bedrooms sun porch open concept living room kitchen. Sliders out to patio with table chairs umbrella gas grill. From front yard can walk to beach 1 minute. Loved the location we were central to everything newport was 30mi utes foxwoods about 35 40 minutes. Very quiet neighborhood felt very safe. We ate all our dinners out and had breakfast at cabin. Everything is supplied from coffee maker to pans and even blow dryer. The only problem was showered doors would come off track. If your looking for a clean safe beach cottage that doesn't break the bank this is it. I loved that we were able to arrive and check out anytime since knowone was scheduled to arrive. One more thing washer dryer portable and takes a long time and you have to wash and dry sheets and towels before you leave. If you have to check out by 10 am you better do it the night before or get up extra early or just bring your own. Luckily we only had 4 of us and did not need all bedding. All in all good stay and would stay again if price and availability is still good
