Quiet time after 10pm
I am originally from Seattle, Washington. After many years of living in various parts of the East Coast of the USA and overseas, I settled in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island.
Throughout most of my life I have been a Real Estate agent, as I am now. My regular international solo journeys have taken me to nearly every corner of the world.
While living in Boston, Massachusetts in the early '90's, I frequently visited the nearby resort town of Newport, Rhode Island, and fell in love with it. In 2002 I moved to Newport and purchased my current residence, known at the William Gyles House, in downtown Newport. Shortly thereafter I turned it into a guesthouse.
I enjoy meeting people from all over the world who regularly pass through the doors of the William Gyles Guesthouse and introducing them to our beautiful City-by-the-sea.
