You'll love this nice apartment on the side of our own home in a quiet neighborhood. Located just steps from Mt. Hope Bay and a short drive from historic Newport and ocean beaches. We're also near Salve Regina and Roger Williams Universities.

We're located in the Common Fence Point neighborhood of Portsmouth, within a short drive to Battleship Cove (Fall River), historic Bristol, and beautiful Newport is just 20 minutes away.

There is a private beach and shoreline here for your enjoyment.

Our stay was amazing! Tom was welcoming and anticipated every need - a perfect host! The location was right in the middle of all the places you might want to visit in the Newport area, but without the crowds, traffic or noise. We will stay there again!

Tom & Cindy are wonderfully considerate hosts. They bent over backwards to make sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. My arrival plane was much later than originally thought, but Tom met up with me and gave me a quick run through tour to get me started. I lucked out weather wise and was able to take advantage of the warm water and swim a bit - the beach is only a few houses away. Most would want to wear some sort of water shoe, as it is a bit rocky. We had a very nice, relaxing stay and would definitely recommend their comfy hide-away to others!

I am a home-improvement contractor who loves to make his home look great. My wife and I own our home by the water with a cute apartment ready for people to use while they enjoy the area. We love it here and can help you with pointers on what to see and do while you are here. We keep ourselves busy with family and fun times. We also like to travel when we can and see other places in the U.S.
