Other things to note
We have over an acre of beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens that can be enjoyed after a busy day at the beach or sightseeing. You can relax on a floating chair or nap in a hammock. We also have a large outside hot water shower and changing room available to our guests. We respectfully ask that all guests rinse off in the outside shower when returning from the beach so as not to track sand into the apartment.

Location

Middletown, Rhode Island, United States

We are conveniently located in a residential neighborhood that is only a mile from the Middletown and Newport public beaches (a.k.a. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd beaches). We are also within walking distance to several of the area's better restaurants. Try Provencal, Chelsea's, or the Atlantic Cafe for breakfast, or stop at Anthony's for the best seafood in Rhode Island. If fried clams suit your palette, then Flo's famous seafood is just down the street as well. If coffee is your thing, give Custom House Coffee Roasters a try, they are just a short walk up the street. Sweet Berry farm is a great local attraction for all ages, and just a 5 minute drive away. You can get farm fresh produce, freshly prepared food and U-pick fruit in season. If you are traveling with children there are several parks in the area, one is just a 5 minute walk down the street. If you love nature walks then be sure to take in the Norman Bird Sanctuary and the Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge they are both less the 3 miles away and offer breathtaking views of the ocean and Sakonnet passage.

I'm a semi-retired Information Technology executive. I'm outgoing, friendly and love meeting new people. I like to share what I know about our Island and the surrounding area, and I love where I live. I'm a real outdoors person, and love everything about the ocean; walking the beach, sailing, swimming, kayaking, fishing and lets not forget the seafood. I'm also an avid sports fan especially participation sports like; skiing, golfing, hiking, and biking. I'm a true New England sports fanatic and love all our local teams. I love to travel and have visited many countries but home and family is where my heart is. I love working with my hands and am a self proclaimed "Jack of all trades". I love SiFi and action & adventure movies and books. When the mood strikes me I have even written some poetry. My wife Lynn and I take pride in our beautiful home and property and hope you will enjoy it as well. "Live, Love, Laugh, Look, Listen, Smell, Feel, Play, for today may be your last"
