“Beautiful B&B!”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

I surprised my husband with an overnight get-away for our 12th wedding anniversary. We live in Southern RI so we are only 10 miles away from the Villa. From the moment we drove up the driveway till the moment we checked out it was amazing. The Villa is a Mediterranean-style Bed & Breakfast Inn that offers you beautiful gardens, warm hospitality, and luxury in everything thing they do! We enjoyed the heated pool and the beautiful jacuzzi.

The room I originally booked "The Blue Grotto" was already booked (an oversight), I was disappointed to have to choose another room. This disappointment was quite short-lived. We ended up staying in the "La Sala Di Positano"! It was beautiful! My husband loved the room! The jacuzzi is rimmed with black and blue pearl opalescent tile. The king four-poster bed was so comfortable in the restful blue and sunny yellow luxurious suite. To add to an amazing stay guests are able to choose from a menu consisting of a few choices and then the gourmet breakfast is served at the location and time of your Choice. Our breakfast arrived to our room at 9am as ordered and was delicious! Barbara and Michael do everything to make sure you have a wonderful stay and this is by far one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. They also made us dinner reservations for Ella's which is only a few minutes away. We loved the recommendation and had an amazing dining experience. Thank you Barbara and Michael for allowing us to feel as though we traveled to Italy for a quick escape and we can't wait to return! You can't go wrong staying here!

Room Tip: There are two rooms which are separate from the main building. I originally wanted to stay in one of...

I just stayed at The Villa Sept 9 2013 for the first time. It was a surprise getaway for my Birthday from my boyfriend..The experience was FANTASTIC! First of all, im a very picky person, when it comes to where i stay,eat,swim, etc. From the time you arrive at the VILLA You are warmly welcomed by the owners Barbara and or Mike, the Decor and tropical gardens,waterfalls,aroma's are so awesome I dont know where to start. Our room , The blue grotto was something out of a romance novel, stone walls,Euro Bathroom w double showers with gold everywhere. An Italian Renaissance to say the least. The imported cheese & meat plate,with my favorite wine and fresh gorgeous flowers in my room, the sparking,soft water pool and garden hot tub, just everything you want in a getaway.In the morning at your chosen time, home made gourmet breakfast delivered to your room, fresh juice,crepes,omelets,muffins,fruits,etc You never need or want or have to ask for anything, Barbara and Mike think of everything.I cannot wait to stay a week during the summer and a romantic winter getaway at the VILLA. TOP NOTCH!!! Thank You Gina & Scott

This B&B's setting is lovely, with its beautiful flower-filled grounds, its pool, hot tub, and hammock to relax in. We had a delicious breakfast by the pool--the choice is yours about where you eat breakfast, in your room or by the pool. We enjoyed a lovely large room complete with big in-room Jacuzzi, and a large bathroom. There are thoughtful extras that make a stay special, such as the treats laid out on the dining room table in the afternoon, and the poolside fridge with beverages. Service is great. Very enjoyable place to stay, particularly if the weather is nice!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the Villa are quiet and ask for the room with the in-room Jacuzzi!

We are new to the Bed and Breakfast experience. This was a gem of a place far exceeding our expectations. Beautiful rooms, lovely garden and pool with very nice small ponds and running water. Excellent breakfasts as good as or better than any expensive restaurant. Michael went way above the call of duty providing excellent suggestions to attractions and restaurants.
If you are looking for a great place to stay and close to many attractions, this would be an excellent choice.
Thanks again, Dave and Hania

Room Tip: We stayed upstairs in the upper room, the most private and great. We did move to a lower room but it...

My husband and I have stayed here three times over past two years and absolutely love it. The location is great for what we do in Westerly- the beach and golf! The grounds at the Villa are beautiful and we love lying in the hammock and hanging out at the pool. Even when they are full it feels quiet and private and after staying a couple of times we feel at home as soon as we pull in. The breakfast is always delicious and we've enjoyed it both in our room and poolside. We appreciate the little touches the owners think of such as the chocolates on the bed, drinks in a little fridge poolside, and snacks and drinks available in the afternoon in the dining room. They have always had great suggestions for restaurants and activities as well.

Room Tip: we love the rooms with a private entrance ( there are three I believe)

Two years ago my husband and I stumbled upon The Villa and spent a wonderful, relaxing 2 days. This year my sister and 82 year old mother were looking for a weekend Mother's Day get away and chose The Villa. Everything was as perfect as I remembered.
Barbara happily accommodated 3 of us in one of the larger guest rooms. We had our amazing, breakfast served by two delightful women in our room.
Though it rained hard the entire time, the spaciousness of the room allowed us to nap, read, watch a movie and play cards without feeling crowded.
If you are looking for a romantic get away or weekend with friends, I highly recommend The Villa.

Room Tip: You can see the rooms on-line and they are well represented.

We just recently got back from a trip Westerly RI and stayed at the Villa B&B. First off, Barb and Michael are extremely knowledgeable about the area. They have quite a collection of menus from various restaurants along with all kinds of brochures highlighting things to see and do in the area.

We stayed in the Roma room which was very nice. It's basically a large room with queen bed and small living room area. The bathroom and jacuzzi are off the bedroom. The walk-in shower was wonderful. Never ending supply of hot water too! We only used the jacuzzi one time since we were gone quite a bit. Tip: You cannot use the jacuzzi past 10:30 pm due to the sound of the jets. The room was very clean and the girls kept it spotless during our stay. The only thing we noticed was a mildewy smell in the room which my relatives noticed too when visiting. We speculated that maybe there was a water leak at one time. Also, the carpeting in the room needs to be steamed cleaned in a few places.

You won't go hungry when it comes time for breakfast. You basically get to choose from 2 breakfasts along with many options for beverages, fruit, granola and yogurt. The breakfasts were delicious as was the coffee. We had breakfast in our room one morning but really preferred the dining room especially when the fireplace was lit. When breakfast arrived in the room, it was more on the lukewarm side than hot. It's hard to keep food hot when traveling any distance from the kitchen. Tip: The coffee maker in the room makes a terrible cup of coffee. Not sure why. Barb and Michael make great coffee so no need to even use the in-room coffee maker. You will find a menu in your room for breakfast the day before to make your selections and also to indicate where you want your breakfast served and the time (8:30, 9, 9:30). You simply drop it off on the dining room table the evening before.

In the afternoon there are cookies and pastries as well as liquors placed in the dining room for guests. The cookies and pastries are scrumptous, especially the chocolate chocolate chip and the lemon filled pastry cup. They are usually left out for a few hours in case you need a little something sweet at night.

The wifi in the room works great and there's a computer and printer in dining room so you can print off boarding passes, etc. The tv is tucked away in a cabinet (very nice touch) and has hundreds of channels (which we could never get the hang of finding what we normally watch).

There is a small outside refrigerator stocked with bottled water, some soda and a few bottles of beer and malt beverages for all guests to enjoy. There's also a pool (was closed for the season) and hot tub (we didn't use but could have if we wanted).

We had a very nice stay and would recommended the Villa for those looking for more of an intimate atmosphere of a B&B.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to hosting you another time. We are grateful for the detail and specificity of your comments. We are committed to improving the quality of guest experience at every level.

The entire bathroom in the room you stayed in was remodeled this year with careful attention. It is gratifying to learn you noted the enhanced features. It is true, that the carpet was scheduled to be replaced directly after the bathroom renovation, and the timing of the season was such that it could not be accomplished in time. We will be pleased to know new carpet has been installed in that room and others, now that we are off-season. In addition, any midlew problems, which may occur in a coastal property, have been addressed as well.

Meal room service is also an amenity we pride ourselves in offereing. If the temperature of the meal items is not to your liking, we encourage guests to notify the kitchen immediately, and we will quickly rectify this. The privacy of this service is an important added luxury.

We are so fortunate to have been spared any extensive Hurricane Sandy damage. So much so, that we have been able to assist in relief efforts for the beach and have offered lodging to evacuees and other property owners. All systems are engaged to have our beach restored by the upcoming summer season. We would proudly welcome you back!
