Comfortable room, near beaches and Newport. Lovely, quiet neighborhood. 5-minute drive from the local beaches, and only 10 minutes from Newport. Bike to beaches, local farmstands, vineyards, or to the Sakonnet Greenway Trail. There is a lovely "shingle" beach within a 10 minute walk. Retreat to the large private yard. Sometimes you can even hear the surf, with the windows open. You are sure to have a relaxing and restful stay in our home.

The space

Clean, comfortable, private first floor bedroom with queen bed and quality linens. The guest room is on the first floor, along with a living room, kitchen/family room, dining room, and private full bathroom in the hallway between the kitchen and guest room. Bathroom, with tub/shower is reserved for use by the guest only. The house is equipped with central A/C, with a separate zones on each floor. You will have the ability to adjust the temperature to your liking, or to open the windows and enjoy the fresh ocean air. There is also a ceiling fan in the room.

My college student daughter and I are happy to welcome you to our home. Although, she is away at school most of the year. We both lead pretty busy lives and will be in/out a lot. Our private bedrooms and bathroom are on the second floor.

We have two pets - Dora, a small and very sweet/friendly dog; and Nala, the cat who is also sweet, but a bit looney, and likely won't come anywhere near you. We do try to keep the pets out of the guest room, and we are all very quiet.

We do keep some personal items in this guest room - located in the closet. You will have access to a drawer in the bedside table, and ability to hang items in the closet. I can also provide an iron upon request.

If interested, we do also have another guest room on the second floor with two twin beds.

Guest access

You are welcome to use the kitchen, family room, deck/patio, and yard during your stay. We also have a water filtration system, so you are welcome to fill water bottles with purified water. Also available is a Keurig machine for coffee/tea and a tea kettle.

The second floor of the home is our private living quarters, and is off-limits to guests.

Interaction with guests

I do live in the house, and will likely be available during the evening and in the mornings. I will be happy to answer questions and share information about the local area, as well as directions and recommendations on what to do or where to eat.

Other things to note

Towels, blow dryer, shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste, mouthwash, and other personal care accessories are available for your use during your stay, in the event that you forget yours.

Check-in and check-out times may be flexible, depending on the arrival/departure schedule of other guests, so if you need to check in or out outside of the designated times, just ask! We will try to accommodate your request, if possible.

Deanna offers a safe, comfortable and friendly experience. Would stay again next time I go to the local Polo Match or visit Newport. Great host; what Airbnb needs to keep it real...

Very comfortable room in a nice house. Deanna made us feel very welcome and ensured we had a good stay. The little things such as available toiletries, brochures, coffee, fruit and more added to the pleasure of the stay. Would highly recommend for anyone OK with sharing a house.

Deanna's place was beautiful! My girlfriend and I had a great time this weekend. A short drive from the beaches, and to downtown Newport. Ideal location to relax, play a card game and have a glass of wine before going out in the city. Deanna and her pets were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone trying to have themselves a weekend with a little bit of everything!

This was our first time we did airbnb and it was a good place to start with. Deanna's place is very clean and exactly as described. Even though we were arriving late, Deanna was very flexible. She also helped us find bike rentals for our day out. We felt very much at home. Definitly recommend staying with her!

Deanna runs a clean and comfortable establishment. She was a very pleasant hostess. However, it took a while to make friends with her cat and dog but we finally managed it. We heartily recommend staying with Deanna!

Deanna's Airbnb was by far the cleanest and most welcoming that I've stayed at thus far. The house is gorgeous and comfortable; a home away from home. I would 10/10 recommend to anyone passing through the area!
