Aurelea offers a private suite which includes a bedroom, a full, newly renovated bathroom, a private entrance, off street parking and a lovely garden. The suite is a completely private part of our post & beam, passive solar heated home. It overlooks Easton's Pond, where you will catch the most beautiful sunrises, everyday. In the evening, the sunset reflects off the buildings on the far side of the pond -- equally stunning. Aurelea is located just three blocks away from the Cliff Walk and Easton's Beach and is a short walk to Bellevue Avenue, the wharfs, and all the shops and restaurants. A great feature is that, even though it is centrally located, it is set on the quiet side of town. It is surrounded by trees and shrubs -- home to many birds. Italian is also spoken. We enjoy making suggestions for dining and other activities. We hope you will come see for yourself why we love living in Newport.
Other Things to Note
There is a mini-fridge in the room.
We ask that you please not smoke or light incense or candles. This is our private home. Everyone from airbnb has always been respectful. Thank you.
Maria's place was perfect for my friend and I for our night in Newport before the United Healthcare Half Marathon we ran. It was a short walk to Easton's Beach, where the starting line is. It was very clean and well-appointed, and in a great location that made it possible for us to avoid any "downtown" traffic on a busy weekend. We would stay there again!
Maria was wonderful to work with. She was very helpful and responsive to any questions I had. The room was very cute and clean. We had a cozy stay and loved that the property was right on the water. Our trip was very quick as we were only in town for a wedding but we enjoyed our stay. Maria seems like a very kind and friendly woman... meeting her was very nice. I would definitely recommend this property to others.
Aurelea was adorable with lots of New England charm. The room had a lot of character and was perfect for our stay. It was private, clean, cute and had everything we needed. The bathroom was updated with lots of towels and toiletries. The house is on the water and I watched an incredible sunrise right from the backyard.
Maria was really sweet, friendly and offered good advice on what to do and where to eat. I'd definitely recommend her place to others and come back here. Thanks Maria!!
die aufnahme war sehr freundlich. die einweisung präzise und gut. apartment und einrichtung entsprachen voll den erwartungen, alles sehr geschmack- und liebevoll ausgestattet.
Maria was timely and gracious in communicating with me by email, text and phone to make sure my arrival to her home was perfect. Her description of her home, my room and bath and grounds was spot on.
An added bonus was how sweet both and her son welcomed me and invited to chat and see what else I mightily to do or see in Newport.
Although our stay was only one night, we very much enjoyed staying with Maria. She was very accommodating, allowing us to check in a bit early due to a wedding time-constraint, and also allowing a one-night-only stay in what is heavily a two-night-minimum area. The room was clean and simple, directions well laid out, and the bathroom was very modern and updated. It was exactly what we needed. The neighborhood was quiet and safe, and although we didn't have time, we were told the walking trails along the water were just steps from our door.
My girlfriend and I had an incredible week at Aurelia this summer. It was clean, quaint, and well-decorated with a nice, newly renovated bathroom (and the best water pressure!). There were tons of towels as well. Maria was such a gracious and friendly host, who made us feel warmly welcomed. She gave us ample suggestions of where to eat, which beaches were best, where to go sightseeing, etc. We literally went to every place she recommended and had an amazing time. The house is so close to everything--the Cliffwalk, beaches, the center of town... Some things were within walking distance, but we mostly drove wherever we needed to go, as it is all within 5 or 10 minutes away and parking is easy. We will definitely be back to Aurelia soon!!
