My friend and I visited Newport and stayed with Karine and her daughter for 1 night. There was a couple staying in the other room as well. The place was quiet, clean and comfortable; check-in and check-out was very efficient! The garden was absolutely lovely and the cats were very friendly!! Oh, and free breakfast, coffee, and tea provided! The place is central to everything. My friend and I had a car and everything was within 5-10 minutes of driving.

While the host was pleasant, I would not stay here again.

Karine was a lovely, respectable host. Her home was beautiful and provided just what we needed for our weekend getaway.

Karine is a lovely hostess and her home is cozy and chic. Much appreciated having breakfast available. The cats were a fun addition to our stay - very sweet. We had a great time!

Karine’s house was a great home base for our visit to Newport! It was centrally located to shopping and restaurants and exploring all that Newport has to offer. The coffee, tea, juice and basic breakfast offered in the morning was much appreciated; it was nice to be able to have a bite to eat before heading out for the day. We enjoyed talking with Karine and hearing her stories and she was always willing to answer any questions we had about the area. Thank you for sharing your home with us and for helping us get to know Newport!

Karine's home is a lovely, comfortable stay right in the heart of Newport! Quiet neighborhood within walking distance to food and shops. Laid-back atmosphere with a nice sitting room and outdoor deck with a beautiful garden. Comfy rooms– got a great night's sleep! We are cat lovers so the three purring hosts made sure we got settled. Very clean home, safe and secure. We definitely recommend if you need a place to stay in Newport! Notes: - We didn't end up cooking breakfast, so we can't rate the kitchen, but it looked very nice and set up for meals and tea time! Water glasses provided in the rooms and a filtered pitcher on the kitchen counter. - There are three cats at the house, so if you have a severe pet allergy (or just not a cat person), this might not work best for you. - Very clean home (no indoor shoe policy) awesome decor, no TV (perfect scene to curl up with books!) - Parking: well, it's Newport. It's first-come-first-serve street parking. But you can walk to everything from the house, so once you grab a spot, keep it! There's a small bus line if you need to get further out. This is an excellent area for biking as well. Karine keeps maps with bicycling routes in the room so you can plan trips. (Buses can accommodate bikes!) Awesome experience, will keep in mind for our next visit!

Kind, friendly, artist and teacher, lots of positive energy! I love my house and garden. Sitting in the garden, drinking tea and reading -- my ideal!
