Everything you need for a perfect Newport Vacatiom

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! It had enough room for 8 people to easily fit without feeling like we were on top of each other. Closer to all the beaches and Newport attractions. Todd and Monica were very responsive and great to work with. All you have to bring is clothes and food and this house brings the rest. We look forward to booking again next year!

30 Year Anniversary Vacation Middletown was close to everything beaches and Newport!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! The flower arrangement, card, and gift basket were such a pleasant surprise when we entered. Everything we needed was pit, grill, fabulous deck where we ate all our meals, well stocked kitchen, anything and everything for the beach. The house was extremely clean and beautifully decorated. The downstairs provided room for the kids to have their own space and there was more than enough room for the five of us. We loved that it was in a nice, quiet area only a short distance to the beaches and Newport! We fell in love with the area and all its beauty. Monica and Todd were so gracious and helpful. Any question was promptly answered and we knew if we needed anything they would take care of it! They helped to make our thirty year anniversary perfect!! To the people of Middletown and Newport, thank you for making these Tennesseans feel so welcomed in your beautiful state! It was our first visit to the New England area, and our first impression was that you are very kind, gracious people. Thank you all for a memorable vacation!!

This is a terrific property with terrific owners.

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered at Todd & Monica's place for 3 weeks this past summer (2016) and the house was great. The location is a good balance between closeness to 1st, 2nd and 3rd beaches, ease of getting downtown, and the quiet of a residential neighborhood. The house was immaculate on our arrival. Although the kitchen is compact, there is probably no utensil or cookware that any chef would want that wasn't there. In general, the house was incredibly well equipped. Plenty of towels. Not only were there a variety of beach toys, chairs, wagons, etc. waiting for us in the garage, but also lawn games. When I had a few questions about where to find or how to operate something, Todd or Monica got back to me almost instantly and solved my problem. With 2 seniors and 2 pre-schoolers, we always drove the 3 minutes to the beach. Really is lots of parking, but back yard sitting area too. Outdoor shower a big plus. The deck off the kitchen was a favorite spot for meals under the umbrella. "In law suite" on lower level is spacious, with TV, full bath, microwave, even an air-hockey table which got extensive use. My only hesitation about giving this good a review is that it might make it harder for us to book this house again next summer.
