******We know this LOOKS like a great place to party, but due to our nice neighbors, who we like and want to like us, we can not host partiers here. If you're looking for a great place to unwind after enjoying all the great things Newport has to offer, this is it!

THE 'WARTS' - Every place has them :)

The 'Den' area has a daybed with 2 twin mattresses (new in 2016) and a room divider - but no door

The apartment is ground level and has a condo above so you will hear all the noise associated with lively urban apartment living.

Also, the half bath is very small and located through the bedroom.


PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF MY NEIGHBORS - The noise does carry so we ask that you not play the game tables and loud music after 10pm.

Parking: There is on street parking and I've never had to walk more than a block. Please pay attention to the signs regarding parking.

I have one guest pass for resident parking (only required May 1 to Oct 1 ) that must be returned - replacements are next to impossible to get.

*Cleaning is done before guests arrive and after they check out. Cleaning fees cover basic turnover cleaning - The STOVE, microwave and refrigerator should be left as clean as you found it. Additional cleaning fees will apply and will be deducted from deposit if property requires additional cleaning.

I appreciate your interest in my home. Please understand that in order to keep my neighbors happy and to make sure my home stays beautiful, I ask that you limit the amount of people in the unit to 4 (this includes day guests) or 10 if renting both units..

I have been honest in my description, I appreciate honesty from my quests; if you plan on entertaining, there are lots of other properties that welcome it.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I were looking for a quick weekend getaway and wound up selecting Newport, RI as our destination. Although Newport is filled with Bed and Breakfasts, Hotels, Motels, etc we wanted our own space to stretch out and relax but also still be in the thick of the downtown scene. By a small stroke of luck, Barbara and Anthony's apartment on Bull St. was available the weekend we would be visiting and words do not do this place justice. The interior is even better than the pictures depict, the location is perfect (nestled on a quiet street corner literally steps away from Thames St as well as other business filled sections of town). The new king size bed Barbara and Anthony invested in was the most comfortable sleep either of us have had, ever! We played pool, shuffle board, walked downtown every morning to gaze at the water and local scenic views...this place is a GEM! Two bathrooms, super comfy couch, Tv's in both the living room and bedroom, awesome kitchen with a great long marble table you can post up on, sip wine and watch TV. DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS...this property had so many of them.

Thanks again Barbara for your excellent communication, responsiveness during our stay, this was truly like being in a home away from home and we would certainly come back to visit next year. I would recommend this property to anyone and everyone looking to stay in Newport, whether it be for a quick weekend or a more extended stay. It has everything you need to be comfortable no matter what your plans. Cheers everyone, don't let this one pass you by!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our visit to Newport at 1 Bull Street. It is in a perfect location, within walking distance to many very good restaurants and shops. Had a great time shooting pool, playing foosball, and shuffle board. Barbara was highly accommodating and provided many great tips that made the trip even better. Would love to return soon!

A must-do space in Newport

  • 5 of 5

Barbara provided our family with a very well appointed and unique space for a week. We enjoyed the pool table just as much as relaxing on the huge couch watching old movies. The condo is in a perfect location. We were able to walk in all different directions to different restaurants, shops, historical mansions and of course the waterfront! Barbara was quick to respond to any of my questions. A must stay space in Newport!

Extraordinary Rental in an Extraordinary Location!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot review this place highly enough. From the moment we discovered its perfect location to the second we opened the front door, we knew we had found something special. Location first: we were able to park our car and not need it till departure. Restaurants, bars, the harbor, shopping -- we were in the midst of it all. We got to "live like a local" and still had tremendous privacy. Didn't even hear street sounds at night. Newport is an incredible place and this place is perfectly situated. As for the place itself, you can see from the pictures that it is one-of-a-kind. But even pictures can't show everything that makes this place so special. It is spacious, but cozy. Vintage, but modern. Playful, but relaxing. My husband and I chose it for our anniversary and it was perfect. Even though we were there without out kids, we played pool, shuffleboard, and foosball like we did when we dated. We watched movies and listened to music on that expansive couch, and toasted to our marriage over wine at the kitchen bar. We felt spoiled by the hotel quality linens and plush white towels. Though we ate out each meal and didn't use the kitchen, it was clear that foodies would thrive in that space. It was well appointed with all those things you don't want to pack, but need for preparing a meal away from home (spices, oils, pans). We will remember that next time we come. And there will be a next time! Thank you, Barbara, for your attention to detail and quick responses and tremendous care you took to make sure we had what we needed for a beautiful stay.

Perfect family fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our 3 kids (ages 8, 11, and 5 months) stayed in Barbara's condo and it was absolutely perfect. There is a different feeling when you rent a home versus simply a rental property, and this condo is truly a home. The entertainment system and the temperature were controlled by the most recent technology, towels and linens were very soft and high quality, there were nice bottles of handwashing and dishwashing soap, the kitchen and bathrooms had anything that you could possibly need (a hair dryer, a makeup mirror, small kitchen appliances, condiments) and the furnishings and decor were full of character. Check in and check out was extremely easy, done through Patti in the shop right across the street. Barbara is very reachable and provides you with detailed information about the condo and the area before you check in. The game tables allow a family to spend time indoors together playing pool and shuffleboard instead of being on their phones or iPads. The condo was easily walkable to many restaurants and coffee shops, a 7-eleven, Long Wharf Mall (Gap, Banana Republic, Panera), and the Newport visitors center. The kids loved the ramen noodle place for lunch (1 block away) and the Corner Cafe for breakfast (2 blocks away). There is a day bed with a trundle in a semi-private alcove with a screen and a large master bedroom. There is a half bath off the master bedroom and a full bath off the main living area. The condo felt spacious, was incredibly clean, and was really the perfect space for our family to relax as well as a home base from which to explore downtown Newport. Thank you again!!

Within walking distance to just about everything, this property is urban living with the Ocean just a short 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive. We are in the trendy South Broadway district - The best restaurants and bars are just outside the door while the Harbor/Wharf is a 5 minute walk in one direction and Bellevue Ave is 5 minutes in the other!

We are in a great location but be advised, it does come with the noise associated with living in a condo as there is a condo above us and we are at street level.

The 'den area ' has a room divider and a daybed with 2 twin mattresses.

Enjoy the Billiard table. foosball and shuffleboard. Flat screen TV with cable, AppleTV and Wi-Fi.

With so much to see in Newport you'll never be bored but, an absolute must see is the Cliff Walk - it will take your breath away - it's 3.5 miles long (but there are plenty of places to get off) and gets more beautiful the further down you go. Make sure to wear appropriate shoes as part of the walk requires walking over rocks. Check out for events during your stay.
