Why Alexis Finlay chose Easton's Point

Everything you could want is here. The ocean, the excitement of Newport. The changing of the seasons. just a five minute walk to the surf. Purgatory Chasm with its exciting rock formation is right next door.We love to bike around Newport and hike around Sachuest point and the Norman bird sanctuary. The events that take place here during the summer are too numerous to count - every kind of music festival you can imagine, film festival, tall ships festival, chowder cook-offs to name just a few.New ferry to Providence takes 45 minutes to explore fun restaurants and shopping.

Outstanding luxury property, amenities, value and attention to details

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in some very special homeaway properties over the years, but the Carriage House takes the cake. The building has been historically preserved and adaptively reused with lots of architectural character and elements from its original purpose. The furniture, appliances, kitchenware, bikes and games are all top of the line. The pool/hot tub is a custom, comfortable treat. And the very short walk to the beach and park rounds out the experience. It all adds up to a thorough luxury rental and an extraordinary value. We found ourselves really appreciating Alexis' efforts and choices, and will certainly be looking for a reason to return in the future.

Comfortable, Convenient, Perfect for a Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I loved staying at the Carriage House. It is tucked away in a lovely setting. All three bedrooms were very comfortable. The kitchen has all that you need, and the living area provides plenty of space to chill and relax. There were many lovely touches provide by Alexis, like the welcome basket and all of the information about the area. The place was far enough away to be quiet, but close enough to downtown airport to make visiting anything easy. Highly recommend this for friends or a family.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

This property was unreal! The host was very accommodating and the cottage was perfect for my stay. I had every piece of cooking ware I needed for my basic dinners I was prepping. Without a shadow of a doubt I would stay with them again! Thank you!!!

Such a great spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I did a range of brain things like Talks: at the Breakers, at the Newport Library and the Newport Museum. At the museum is a stunning watercolor of Second Beach. We had the "Visit Newport R.I." app to suggest daily activities. A good idea to load this. We also ate lobster most days in every different way... We did good stuff for our bodies: We visited a wonderful yoga studio, walked the beaches. We rode the bikes provided to the Nature Preserve at the end of Second Beach. The staff there is very helpful in identifying migrating birds you do not see often enough to remember... we went to a farmer's market and found many delightful vendors with healthy products... especially an aromatherapy booth.....we photographed many beautiful views, sea shells, trees. And of course the apartment is gorgeous, and peaceful to come back to. Slept like a queen. Recharged our batteries!

Wonderful stay in Newport!

  • 5 of 5

Property was gorgeous. Sheets were top notch - everything you could need to cook dinners in - which we did 2 nights including steaming up lobsters with the pots and gear they had. Everyone had enough space (we had 4 adults and two kids). The bathrooms had everything we needed. We didn't use the bikes and beach gear they had in abundance but think it would have been super convenient had we been here during a different part of the year. The only small challenge we had was finding the door to the unit in the dark. We had to use our phones as flash lights and walk around the buildings looking for the correct door. Not sure if maybe the outside door light was out or what. But in all our stay couldn't have been better! It was a perfect place for our two families to have a family get together with game playing, good food and tons of fun exploring the area. Thanks to Alexis for sharing her wonderful Newport location with us.

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We spent Labor Day Weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The location is great, short walk to the beach yet secluded. I was worried about having our kids with us in a quiet neighborhood but it worked out great. The owners is very responsive and the unite lovely.
