Interaction with guests
We pride ourselves with giving folks total privacy. We live nearby on another street but can be of any help as needed. We are happy to give advice on restaurants, activities etc and do have a notebook of ideas on the area in the house.
We are pretty flexable on house rules. This is a quiet neighborhood and a dead end street so we ask our guest to respect our neighbors! We prefer no pets and this is definately a smoke free home. We ask our renters to return our kayaks and canoe to storage rack. If left in front of house on beach, they have been known to drift off with the tide!
Cancel up to 7 days before your trip and get a 50% refund plus service fees back.

I am a newly retired school teacher of 30 years and I have been renting our family property for most of those years! I manage two houses; a 3 bedroom home and my daughter's 2 bedroom cottage. Both are waterfronts on Narrow River. We love the river and its uniqueness as a brackish tidal inlet between the ocean and a huge fresh water lake. We are located on the river halfway between the lake and the ocean. My husband and I enjoy meeting new people and will help any way we can to make your stay memorable! We have lots of local information on activities, restaurants,
etc in Narragansett and South Kingstown and all the surrounding area of interest in Southern RI.
We live close by the properties we rent but totally respect our tenants privacy. We are there if you need us for anything, but otherwise keep a very low profile.
