About this listing
This spacious two bedroom condo is my escape. I use it a few days almost every month year round. 1/2 mile to Thames Street and the Wharfs, 1/2 mile to Gooseberry beach and 1 mile to the fabulous Cliff Walk and Legendary Mansions. Enjoy it as I do.
1/2 MILE FROM MOST EVERYTHING. Close to everything in Newport, 1/2 mile to Thames Street and the fabulous dining and shopping. 1/2 mile to Gooseneck beach. 1/2 mile to King's Park beach. 1/2 mile to the Mansions and Cliff Walk.
Coin operated Washer Dryer in Basement.
Interaction with guests
I live about 35 minutes away when there is no tourist traffic.
The 5th Ward of Newport. 1/2 mile from everything.
Gooseberry Beach is one of the unknown beaches of Newport. It certainly looks like one of the very private local beaches, but anyone can use it. The tourists don't know about it. It is a 1/2 mile walk from my condo. Parking is $20 even for locals, but if you walk it's free.
The sand is nice, the beach clean, and the views are wonderful. A nice combination of lovely ocean, rocks and very, very large Newport houses.
This beach never seems to get as crowded, probably because most people don't know it exists. Even many Newporters don't know it's a public beach.
The beach is rather small so it's not a place for long walks but it is pretty protected so it's a nice place for kids and poor swimmers. On occasion the beach does get some huge, crashing waves but the wind has to be just right. Most of the time the water is very calm for the open ocean. You can go online and read more about it and see pictures.
Thames Street and the waterfront is just 1/2 mile walk north. Actually Thames Street becomes Carroll Avenue (where the condo is located) 1/4 mile before the condo.
Bus Stops at front of building. Can walk to most everything in Newport including beach.
Other things to note
City Tennis courts 1/10 mile away.
It is a quiet condominium community. Newport has strict noise ordinances. The condo association does not allow animals in the units. Prefer non smokers. In this four plex, no one the other owners smoke.
