Why Jan and John Hanks chose Newport and Aquidneck Island

We bought the property for the water and water view. The property is off the beaten track... sitting on the deck or from the inside looking out, watching the different species of birds fly or float by, (one morning I counted eleven swans passing by). Watching the ever changing skies from sunrise to sunset, brings peace to my busy life.

What makes this house unique

The home is designed for year round vacations. The home has water views from most windows.

Perfect vacation with the best view in Portsmouth

  • 5 of 5

Jon & Jan were the perfect host. The house was spotless, instructed on how to use everything and left lots of goodies. Made me feel like I was at a bed & breakfast. The house has beautiful views throughout the house and is beautifully decorated.

This was an amazing rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house lived up to all our expectations and more. The house was even better in person than in the photos! The house was immaculate and Jan was kind enough to provide snacks and beverages so we could settle in before finding the local market (which was aborable). This was our first time using HomeAway and I'm afraid we may have set the bar too high for future rentals with this one. The property is right on the water and off the beaten path but centrally located so you are only a 30 minute drive to Newport and Bristol is right over the Mt. Hope bridge.

The kitchen was fully equipped!

The bathroom towels were fluffy!

The beds were comfortable!

Jan has thought of every detail and anything we could think of was available in the house.

We hope to have the chance to stay on this lovely home again.

Peaceful, beautiful home with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay in this great home nestled in near the New Hope bridge on the bay. John and Jan's hospitality is wonderful with a completely stocked kitchen, responsive owners, and a welcome basket of items at the start. We'd highly recommend this house and we are returning next year.

Beautiful home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at the Shore House. Swimming at high tide, relaxing on the bay side lawn, enjoying the activity on Narragansett Bay, and falling asleep with the Hog Island Light and Mount Hope Bridge lights were daily events. Jan and John were wonderful hosts and we feel fortunate to have found this gem. We are coming back next summer. Nance and Jay Hoder

Margie Mc. Wedding week

  • 5 of 5

Was in Rhode Island for my son's wedding. Jan and Jon made our stay a great memory for me and my grandchildren. The house is breathtaking with the view of open water and a beautiful bridge lite up at nite. Windows give you a view wherever you look. This is a hidden gem on a little dirt road for privacy and quiet ,but still not far from Newport and other tourist destinations. Jan pays attention to every detail from what kind of wine you drink to having coffee and cream waiting for you as well as a delicious fruit pound cake ( so yummy). The beds are so comfortable the upstairs air loft king bed is a sleep number bed! The house is immaculate. This is definitely a five star stay. Thank you Jan and John!
