Listen to the ocean surf while enjoying magnificent 260 degree ocean and pond views. Direct oceanfront with extraordinary sunsets over Sachem Pond, the North Light and the ocean. The private beach is rocky but perfect for beachcombing and exploring. Or just relax on our broad deck and enjoy the magnificent sunsets.
Located on Block Island, which the Nature Conservancy called "one of the ten last great places in the western hemisphere," our home is on the north end of the island, mostly surrounded by conservation land. It is an easy walk to hiking trails, bird sanctuaries, and sandy beaches. Or bike or drive to town to enjoy the classic Victorian resort architecture, interesting shops, great restaurants, and a variety of bars and cafes.
The casual airy architect-designed interior features an open design with combined kitchen/dining/living areas, and one bedroom and a full bath on the first floor. On the second floor there are 3 bedrooms, one with private bath, plus a hall bath. Bedding is 1 queen, 1 double & 4 single beds. A den with single futon can be used as an alternate bedroom, but total occupancy is limited to 8 people.
No smoking in the house, please, and no pets.
All rentals are by the week. Rates vary depending on the season. High season (mid-June to mid-September) all rentals are from Sunday to Sunday. Off season we can be more flexible.
If you want to bring a car over (recommended, if you don't rent one on the island) you will need to make a reservation on the ferry for it. Please be aware that these reservations fill up in season on rental turnover days, so reserve as early as you can.
You will need to supply your own linens and towels and your own food.
We work with a management agent on the island. We pay all their fees. They will help you with keys and with any questions or problems. The one thing that they will require from you is a security deposit of $500. The security deposit will be returned as long as there is no damage. You will have to sign a rental contract with them.
If you need to cancel, the management agent will attempt to find a replacement. Your rent will be returned in full if a replacement is found.
Please leave the house clean. It will be checked when you leave. You may clean it yourself or hire a cleaning service through our management agent.
Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
I am a writer, and my husband is a campus planner. We have recently moved from Massachusetts to California--quite an adjustment, but we love being here! We also like to travel.
