Our home is close to the best kept-secret beaches in Rhode Island! Charlestown is an underdeveloped beach town on the coast of RI. We are in close proximity to Ninigret Pond, Green Hill Pond, unspoiled "Quonny" Pond, and Trustom Pond National Wildlife Refuge. Guests have enjoyed day excursions to Jamestown, Newport, and Block Island.
Our home has the feel of a house on the shoreline, with beach themed decor. The home has recently been painted inside and out and has new carpet and flooring. The first floor has a bright and open floor plan with comfortable seating in a large family room, complete with cable TV. The well equipped kitchen overlooks the living space which combines the best of both worlds. The top floor has a pull-out sofa for our guests use. The front and rear decks are a great spot to have your coffee in the morning or enjoy a cook-out and cocktail in the evening. The bottom floor has 2 connecting bedrooms with sleeping quarters for 4-5 guests. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has bunk beds and a twin bed. The yard is beautifully landscaped with something blooming during every season. Sit still and enjoy the entertainment that the hummingbirds provide on the front deck while enjoying your morning coffee. The back yard is fenced which provides a private, secure space for your family. An outside enclosed shower provides a perfect ending to a beautiful day at Charlestown or Blue Shutters Beach.
To unlock the front door, you will need to access the lock box to the left of the front door. We will provide the 4 digit code, prior to arrival.
Guests have access to the entire house, (except for the owner's closet). We provide basic cable as well as wifi. All the comforts of home are here- Microwave, Drip Coffee Maker, Blender, Waffle Maker and lobster pot. Full Kitchen furnished with everything you need. There is a gas grill on the rear deck along with outdoor seating. The upstairs closet is stocked with an assortment of games and we have a large collection of movies for your enjoyment. Check out the shed for beach bikes and boogie boards.
YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN LINENS, PILLOW CASES AND BATH TOWELS. (Sheets Needed- 1 Queen, 1 Twin, 1 Bunk w/ 2 twins, 1 Optional Queen Sofa Bed) We do provide blankets and pillows.
***There is a mandatory 8% Short-Term Occupancy Tax that is included in the total cost. This is a recent tax measure implemented by the State of RI.
In order to rent our home you must have at least one prior review or feedback. Our home is a non smoking home and pets are not allowed.
We have full-time neighbors that are fairly quiet. Please be respectful.
We will be available to answer any questions that a guests may have while staying at our cottage. Other than answering questions we respect your privacy and vacation time and we won't be interacting with guests.
We love the shore and especially the beaches of Rhode Island, which is why we chose to live our dream and buy a summer home in Charlestown RI. We use the home several weeks per year and rent it through the winter, during the off-season. Rhode Island is such a small state but you would be amazed at the amount of forests and underdeveloped areas.
We are both working folks with a son that is attending college in NH. I am in the restaurant business and my wife is a retired teacher. We have done some extensive traveling but we have found some of the best is right here in the United States. We are active and have a busy lifestyle, which makes our free time much more valuable. We have a passion for skiing (my son's favorite activity) and thus we like to try to plan at least one getaway per year with our small family.
Best Regards, Tim & Dee
