Overview

Photos and Description of this Yachting Village holiday condo

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6. Best Views in Town!

You are going to have a blast at this 2 bedroom condo in the heart of Newport! This condo is right in the center of everything. The Newport Onshore is an oasis of relaxation in the middle of Newport. Walk to everything, including grocery store, all the cute little shops, and restaurants of all price ranges.

If you have never been to Newport in the summer, you don't know how important it is to have good parking available to you. The Newport Onshore is great because once you have parked your car you can walk almost everywhere. And because you have your own parking space, if you do want to drive to the casino or the State Park to check out the kite festival, your spot will be waiting for you when you get back.

The views from this unit are incredible. Two balconies overlook the Harbor. Enjoy a glass of wine or a beer while watching the twinkling lights of the Newport Bridge from the balcony. Because this building extends out into the bay, you will find multi-million dollar yachts in front of you.

You will be staying in a fully-furnished 2 bedroom/2 bath unit. My family loves it when we come. We pack light, because there is a washer and dryer in the room. We love making breakfast in the kitchen and sitting out on the deck watching the boats and the seagulls in the morning. We love to do the same thing at night as things wind down.

If you prefer, there are DOZENS of restaurants within walking distance. Also an easy walk to many attractions, including the Newport Tennis Hall of Fame. My better half loves tennis, and when we bring friends we book some court time on one of their beautiful grass courts.

If you have never been to Newport and Jamestown in the summer, you are in for a treat. Newport is alive with events, and Jamestown can be a quiet refuge. One key thing to note is that parking and traffic can be tough, especially on the weekends. That's another thing which makes this resort great. Because it's centrally located, you leave your car in your assigned parking space and rarely have to use it, unless you want to go to one of the nearby casinos, or carry your golf clubs.

This unit has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dining area with a dining room

table, a living room, a full kitchen including four burner stove, oven, microwave, and dishwasher.

Of course, there is cable tv with HBO in every room. DVD player in living room. On a cool evening, add a little ambiance and light a fire in the working fireplace.

Units are the best equipped in Newport, including stove, microwave, dishwasher, etc. Don't pack a lot of stuff, because there are washers and dryers right in the unit! And air conditioning is ice cold! Indoor and outdoor pools on site, along with exercise equipment and sauna. Gas barbecues are also on site and are free to use.

"Get Out and Play" activities sponsored by the resort. The area is filled with activities,

including the on site pools, the nearby beaches, the kite festival at the local state park. Newport Casino (all electronic) within 15 minutes, and Foxwoods less than an hour away.

About Fred DeCaro III

I have been coming to Newport for nearly two decades. I purchased these timeshare weeks and used them for many years. Now with a wife and kids, we do lots of other things, and sometimes rent them out in the summer. I hope you have as much fun in Newport as we do!

Why Fred DeCaro III chose Newport

In my opinion, the Newport Onshore is the best situated of all the resorts because of its views, and its proximity to everything. Some of the other resorts in town are either too far from the center, or they don't have the views which make you really feel like you are in a seaside town.

What makes this condo unique

Besides the great views, the pools, and the location in the heart of all the great restaurants and shops, it's great to be able to know that you are staying in a professionally managed resort, with "real" guest services, maintenance, housekeeping, and not running the risk of some AirBnB which might not deliver such consistent quality.

Lovely week in Newport

  • 4 of 5

This is a great condo in the middle of the Lower Thames area in Newport. You can truly walk almost anywhere and while it's close to the action, it's a slightly less crowded part of town. Spent many hours sitting on the deck watching the harbor and the amazing yachts come and go, and the sunset was spectacular. No problems with parking, the apartment is well stocked and comfortable. Excellent beds, two large bathrooms, comfortable and convenient. Very simple to check in and out. There were some very loud parties on the weekend - there is a loud band that plays late on weekend nights a couple of wharves down, almost directly across from us. Weather was nice so we had the windows open; when we shut the windows for the a/c it wasn't as noisy. If the pool area is important to you, the place could either use some more pool chairs, or restrict people from reserving them early on with towels (and then only using them for a couple of hours). Would highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your excellent review. I was at another resort in Newport the same weekend as your stay, and it was really hot that weekend. I don't think many people wanted to venture out and see Newport that day, and everybody stayed near the pool! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and spent some time taking advantage of the great views from this unit.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This was my families second time to the Onshore and I cannot thank you enough for following through with my reservation confusion. The views from the Westwind untits are the best and my family and I truly enjoyed every minute of our time down in Newport. We love the fact that since we were centrally located that we could just walk anywhere at anytime. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for comfort, closeness to town and beautiful views.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you had a nice stay! I do love being in the Westwind building, with what are unarguably the best views at the resort.
