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.

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!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at more than a dozen HomeAway/VRBO homes over the years, and this was by far the best of the lot! The setting is lovely--private (we were here for New Years), right on the water--but close to lots of activities. The house itself and its thoughtful owners are what really tip the scale. The house is immaculate and very well supplied. It is open, bright, welcoming, beautifully furnished and finished. The master bed was a sleep-number king, and very very comfortable. It was made with 2 nice woolen blankets that proved to be warmer and heavier than I like, but ta dah! there was a down comforter in the closet as an alternative--perfect! The dining table was in an windowed alcove with a view of the water and the Mt Hope bridge. The TV was upstairs with 2 stressless chairs that were extremely comfortable. TV is Direct TV, and there were a couple of movies we wanted to rent. I texted Jan and in minutes had the necessary code and agreement (we paid for the movies we rented). There is a DVD player so you can bring your own, too. The master bathroom had a heated floor!! and a steam shower. It was like being at a spa. And the real welcoming surprise was the thoughtful stocking of the kitchen and fridge--a lovely bottle of wine, a basket of fruit, a bowl of snacks, and breakfast--English muffins, OJ, jam, very good butter, and Peets Dark Roast coffee. It was so nice to just arrive and not have to shop right away. The Hanks have a place in Solana Beach, CA, that we hope to stay in at some point. All in all, just a delight. Don't have any hesitation about staying here--this is absolutely the best.
