Excellent location! Perfect apartment for a small family. We had a great stay.
Very close to the town, ferry, and beach. Walking distance to everything. Perfect for a small family. Beth and her family were excellent hosts! Highly recommended.
Thanks! We hope to see you again next year for the Music Festival 😎.
Can't beat this location & rental!
My family and I (husband and 2 year old daughter) stayed at the rental in August 2017 for a week. We had to bring a car because of the amount of stuff we had but you don't need one here. Walking distance to Old Harbor, shops, restaurants, beach, grocery store - you name it. We didn't spend much time inside except to sleep but everything was clean, as pictured/listed and decorated nicely. We loved the backyard, the swing for our child, sitting on the front porch and people watching, sitting by the fire at night and roasting smores, playing cornhole, the view of the pond and easily walking into town. My favorite was the outdoor shower - I miss it already. The only "negative" is that sometimes you can hear the bars at night but the fan drowned out the noise and didn't really bother us. That just means you're that close to the action! As mentioned in the listing, the owners are adjacent to the rental. We found them to be very friendly, helpful, respectful of our privacy and welcoming. Pro tip - if you're bringing a vehicle - get your reservation ASAP. We love Block Island and cannot wait to come back to this property next summer.
We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to seeing you again next summer!
First, the picture is deceiving. This is a live in apartment and there is no privacy. You share the backyard with the owners. Upon checkout the owner made us do a "walk through" and said she was upset that the sheets were dirty and that she had to clean them. She yelled at us like two year olds.
I'm sorry you were "unimpressed" with your stay...I guess the feeling is mutual. We clearly state in our description, we have a family home with an attached apartment. Yes, the back yard is shared, (also clearly stated). We attract families with children or couples looking for a nice, clean place close to town and the beaches. You were NEITHER of those groups.
First you mislead us by signing the contract with only two people listed, when, in fact, you had up to 6 staying over at night. I could have made an issue of that but didn't. Then, you drank and partied until 2am most of the week. Again, I could have made an issue of that but didn't. You had more alcohol and profanity coming out of that apartment than I could believe. Again, I could have made an issue of that but didn't. And lastly, your friends were throwing your garbage in the brush next to our house. THAT I had to make an issue of.
You need to think twice when you chose to rent someone's home. At 20-something, you clearly don't have the consideration and respect for the space around you. I clean that apartment myself. (I stuck to the floor and yes, the new, white bed linens were filthy.) Your group (many who were, again, not on the lease) treated the apartment as a fraternity house. This was not acceptable and YES, we did want a personal walk through before you left (the first we've ever requested). We have rented our apartment for 15 years now. You are the first group I have EVER had a problem with. You are also the first group who has EVER complained.
2 couples from long island
From the first day I email the owner of this property, to our last day of vacation there, the owner was very helpful and by being helpful she made our stay there GREAT. She email me about the PeaPod food delivery to the island, left a book with activities to do on the island. And most of all made her home feel welcome to us. The photos of the inside of the cottage was accurate and very clean, as well as the outside. Yard was well maintained. We BBQ outside in the yard, stayed out at night and watch the stars. Everything you would want outside was at your finger tips right there. We even had dinner on the front porch. Location of this property was more than what you would ask for. You could walk anywhere with in 5 to 15 mins to get to a beach, restaurant or store. I would recommend this place to everyone I know that would like to stay on Block Island. We are looking forward to going back to the same location next year.
It was our first time to Block Island and we will definitely return! The property was close to everything and perfect for our family vacation. We especially enjoyed the swing set and grill - we hung out and cooked in most nights at the house since it was so inviting.
The island is amazing. We enjoyed visiting different beaches and nature trails each day. They were each uniquely different. We were very active throughout the week and there is still so much more for us to see. We can't wait to return.
The owners were extremely responsive and accommodating. The house was very well maintained and everything was perfect!
We love Block Island and vacation every summer there typically at an inn in Old Harbor, but when we found this great rental so close to Old Harbor and all it has to offer, we had to stay there! We are so glad we did! The apartment was perfect for our family of 4 (two adults and two toddlers), loved the backyard area and the front porch was great for relaxing after a day at the beach. The house is walking distance to terrific restaurants, beautiful beaches, the fun pubs, grocery store, and all of the shops! We do bring our car over (for packing purposes, we need it), but only drove it 3 or 4 times all week - mostly to head over to New Harbor to eat at The Oar and out to see the sights for a drive. The house is very clean and the owners are more than accommodating - lovely family, we are happy to have met them! We are already counting down the days until our return to this rental next summer - can't beat it! We had a wonderful family vacation there!
So glad you had a great stay and we look forward to seeing you and the kids next summer!
