Great Holiday at Happy Landing

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable stay during Thanksgiving week. We were four adults and two children. The house is cute, clean, and well-stocked. We had a great time relaxing, hiking all over island, walking on beaches, using the fire pit, and doing puzzles with our kids. We cooked a full Thanksgiving meal here! Great house and easy-going hosts. Thanks Dave and Lynda!

Wonderful little getaway on Block Island!

  • 5 of 5

David and Linda were so lovely as hosts. They were very communicative and made me feel so welcome in their home. I was sent a list of items that would be at the house and ones that I should bring which was very helpful. The house is a lovely place to sit back and enjoy the island. Watch the planes fly in, have a glass of wine and eat snacks on the deck, enjoy the fire pit and watch the stars out on the lawn. The kitchen is easy to cook in and has all the appliances you need. It's really wonderful! I went with my friends late in the year and the weather was AMAZING. We had sunshine the whole time and I even sunbathed on the deck in October. The house is filled with games and puzzles and books but since we were only there for 3 nights and the weather was so good, we didn't take advantage of that part. I would absolutely recommend Happy Landing for an awesome trip to Block Island!

From start to finish the owners were great! Property is beautifully outfitted and well maintained. Lots of useful information at the house. Lots of games especially outdoor Jenga! Had so much fun! Outdoor decks provide gorgeous views. Inside it is nicely decorated and kitchen nicely stocked for cooking. Easy walk to town.

Clean, convenient family rental for fun summer get-away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two children recently stayed at Happy Landing for a week. We were very happy with the house. It was clean, well maintained, well stocked with essentials, and full of helpful information and instructions. The location is good - walkable into town and an easy bike ride to the town beach and new harbor areas. The house is right next to the airport runway but the planes were more entertainment for the kids than nuisance (depending on the winds, you can hear them but it didn't bother us). We used the grill and the fire pit and played games and puzzles from the house collection. Overall we were extremely satisfied with our stay and recommend the house to others who want to have a low-key, relaxing vacation on Block Island!

Fun and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Happy Landing! The house was just right for our family of 4 including 2 little kids. We enjoyed the deck during nap times and the fire pit after bedtimes. The kids ran all over the yard and loved the outdoor shower after long days at the beach. Every night the 4 of us walked or biked into town or the Oar for dinner. Thanks Linda and Dave for a great home for our Block Island vacation!!
