Our family of 4 visited Newport for a squash tournament. We feel very lucky that we were able to rent Annette's house!
Annette was a great host. She was very prompt in replying to communications, and very accommodating with our check-out time, which was delayed because my son's final match was in the afternoon. Also, because some minor carpentry work needed to be done in the hallway, Annette very generously sent us a gift voucher.
The location was ideal, located within close walking distance of excellent shops and restaurants, but on a quiet part of Thames street. It was very easy to go to all of the major attractions in Newport, including the mansions, Cliff Walk, and the Oceanfront Drive.
The house itself is divided into two separate apartments, and we rented the top one. Both apartments have their own parking space right next to the house, which is very convenient. Our apartment had a very cool loft area, which the kids loved. Both the main floor and loft were air-conditioned. The entire apartment was very clean and tidy, and we had everything we needed for our three day stay, including a nice kitchen, dining area, and porch overlooking the back garden, clean towels, linens, shampoo, soap, shaving cream, body lotion, dishwashing machine detergent, 4G wifi, etc. Although we didn't use these items, we noticed that Annette also left a bottle of champagne, a picnic basket full of plates, plastic ware, cups, and other supplies, and two bags of ice in the freezer.
All in all, we had a great experience with this rental, and recommend it highly!
