The pictures shown on line were accurate; but they did not do justice to the warm and inviting character of the beach house. The house was clean and very well maintained, and it had all the accessories you would want in your home. The house itself was in a perfect location. You could look out the front windows and see the ocean. Looking out the back windows you had a beautiful view of the peaceful salt pond. The beautiful sandy beach was only a couple of 100 feet from the front door. The owners went out of their way to be accommodating and answered all of my silly questions. The places we went to eat were Estia (a very good Greek restaurant) and Spain. In closing, I was sad to leave the house, but I take away many wonderful memories shared with my daughter and her little ones. Hopefully, next year we can build on these blessed memories. Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children, romantic getaway. **Comments from a renter from Bridgewater, CT. We were so pleasantly surprised when we drove up to this home. It fronted the ocean and past the green backyard was a salt pond. There was easy parking, and a very cozy, warm home with plenty of space. The views from each room were beautiful, the beach was a short walk away, the beds were very comfortable and the house was very clean. We enjoyed our stay there and look forward to going back in the Spring. The owners were very pleasant and very nice to deal with. We had a great time!! **Comments from a renter from Tennessee: 'We had a wonderful time, and you have made the house so user friendly that it was almost like home. (only with a better view!!!) Waking up to the ocean out the window, coffee on the deck, and kayaking in the pond will be tough to match on any other trip we take. I will be delighted to recommend the house to anybody I know heading to New England!' Matunuck-HOW VACATIONS OUGHT TO BE ! Forget the commercialism of Cape Cod and its traffic......This house is located in southern Rhode Island right on the Atlantic Ocean with Potter's Pond in the backyard. This is an area of wide beaches and relaxed lifestyle. Here vacationers return to a simpler life of walking miles of shoreline, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, biking back roads, the smell of fresh local sweet corn, the freshest seafood, local products from farmers' markets, the scent of salt air, or just enjoying homemade ice cream.... Whether you enjoy riding the waves on boogie boards, surfing, fishing, or just relaxing on the deck this Matunuck Point Vacation Home is for you. Picture This--Your day begins with the gentle sights & sounds of the waves on the rocks outside your window. Grab your coffee & make the first footprints in the sand as you walk along the beach. Spend the day at the water's edge reading or swimming, or never leave the deck & its 360 degree water views. Take a drive through back roads to explore local shops. Take a quiet rowboat ride around the pond. Enjoy fine dining out or just grab a cool drink and crack a lobster on the deck as you watch the sunset display its colors over the pond. You won't want to leave! More

From the start, Leslie kept us informed as to the status of our request to rent her beautiful home. She was really helpful in providing lots of details about the Beach House as well as places to eat, shop, and things to do in the area. This property is really great! We loved that there is a water view from every room in the house - either the ocean in the front yard or the lake in the back yard! Magnificent! It was just wonderful to walk a few hundred yards to the beach from the house. We also liked that we could walk to the small grocery store and a couple of restaurants up the street. The house is very comfortable with four good-sized bedrooms, two living rooms, a great eat-in kitchen, and two baths. There is a warm outdoor shower near the deck that makes cleanup after a day at the beach a breeze! All of the amenities you could imagine were taken care of including hand soap in both baths as well as kleenex in every room. Honestly, we felt like it was our own home! What a fabulous vacation home!

From the first email with my interest in the property to the final thank you after staying there the owners were terrific to deal with and responded to any question or concern within hours. The process was painless and very easy for those of you not sure of renting the property. As far as the house, you couldn't ask for a better location - with the very large pond in the backyard and the ocean in the front yard! And with only a 200 yard or so walk down the road you were on an isolated beach - what could be better. The house is just as described and what you would expect in a beach front community - quaint, great views, good space for family gatherings and a homey feeling. The four bedrooms are situated upstairs and are all good sizes, all have water views as well as ample closet space. The only thing missing are ceiling fans but with the cross breeze from the ocean to the pond I'm not sure they are mandatory. The bathroom with a shower is on the second floor and is a nice size. The only drawback is that this is the only shower in the house, but with 6 people this didn't impact our group but could if you have a slightly larger group. The first floor is a really nice space with two living/sitting rooms and a nice sized eat in kitchen with a large fridge/freezer, electric stove and microwave. The kitchen has pretty much anything you will need. Two really nice spaces are the decks - one off the second floor with great views and the second off the side entrance that is covered, both have plenty of space to set up a chair and relax - in or out of the sun! The property is large and extends all the way out to the rock wall at the ocean - most likely too steep for most folks to climb down so be careful. And to the back it extends down to the dock that reaches out to the pond and has a small boat which we didn't use. The immediate area has plenty to do,but with a short ride you can be in Narragansett, Point Judith or Newport as well as a short ride to URI and the train station. The small grocery store down the road has all you would need including a very nice meat/fish section. We didn't go to Ocean Mist but it was hopping all weekend! We did take the short 15 minute ride to Mews and that was well worth it for a good meal, as well as some good take out food - wings and pizza. Definitely a house we would consider renting again!

A wonderful spot. The Atlantic is across the street and the beautiful salt Potters Pond is in the back yard. A three minute walk out the door lands you on a secluded stretch of beach that becomes the East Matunuk State Beach. This house has great views and a cozy family atmosphere, feels like a home not a rental. Short distance to restaurants and the Block Island Ferry.

The location of this home is amazing! The ocean views were in front and there's a huge, serene pond/bay in the back of the house. We sat in the lawn chairs by the pond to watch the sun set. The home is equipped with everything you could need. The house was spotless, but a bit dated. The beds were comfortable. We walked the beach each day, just minutes from the house. We visited Newport and we were very close to the Block Island ferry in Point Judith. We would definitely come back again!

Perfect setting facing the ocean with a beautiful bay behind and a two minute walk to a delightful beach. A very comfortable 4 bedroom home, well appointed for a relaxing stay. We were told all we needed to bring was our food and so it was. I have rented several times in the area. This was the best choice.

The home is fantastic for a large family who wants beach front. This place feels like home as soon as you arrive. Everything is included. Just pack your clothes and move in. There is a row boat for the pond in back and bikes to get around. Also, the beds are comfortable. Leslie was great to work with for this reservation. Wanted to stay for another week when it came time to leave.

Our family enjoyed our stay in Matunuck Beach, RI in this great beach home Every morning we sipped coffee and then enjoyed walking down the beautiful stretch of beach. The fantastic ocean views and relaxing sounds of the waves in the front yard, and the peaceful salt pond in the back made this a wonderful, restful vacation before the hustle and bustle of our daughter's wedding. The house was bigger than the photos show and very well equipped and stocked - a real home. Need a pizza cutter? They have one, as well as wine glasses, a vase, plenty of cutlery, dishes and picnic ware, nice linens - anything you possibly need. Everything was nice and clean on our arrival. There are plenty of hangers and closet space in each room, enough so my daughter's dress had it's own closet. Don't miss the grilled oysters at the Matunuck Oyster bar - you can get there on the salt pond or by driving around. We road our bikes to the pizza shop, grocery store, ice cream stand and church in Matunuck. It's close to a lot. The owners were very nice to work with and to share their beautiful home with us. We look forward to another stay!

I have rented this gem of a property several times and wiill be returning soon. Where else can you step outside your front door and sit on an ocean cliff? We were so close to Newport, Watch Hill, Narragansett, and the ferry to Block Island...(which you can see from the house on a clear day.) My family and friends can't wait to join me again at Matunuck!
