Reviewed 5 June 2008

We spent a long weekend in Newport 5/16/08-5/19/08. We are 2 couples in our 50's. I was having a hard time finding a good place for 3 nights as it was graduation weekend for a couple of local colleges.I found this place at vrbo.com. I was not able to find any reviews on this place as it was new, but I figured it was a great location within walking distance to everything in Newport. We had free parking for 1 car and we didn't need to use the car for the entire 3 days.
There are 4 suites, we rented SeaBreeze, which is a 2 story townhouse on the 2nd and 3rd floor of a funky builiding steps from the Marina and several resteraunts and bars.(when the bars got out at night it was a bit noisy but closing the windows helped and it is a working waterfront)
The 2nd floor had a great kitchen, dining area and livingroom, off to the side was a small room, somewhat private with a trundle bed and day bed that slept 2. It was a very comfortable, convenient place to stay. Everything was brand new and it was super clean. Upstairs is a large bedroom with King bed and full bath. It was fine for the 4 of us cause we just wanted to hang out. Not great for 2 couples that want total privacy. It would have been great if there was a 1/2 bath on the 2nd floor. The beds were super comfy and it was a really cool place to stay for a few days. We got breakfast for 2 at Christies next door included in our package. We ate there one day and it was a good breakfast. The resteraunt was a little rigid on what you got for free but not a big deal.
The 1st night we discovered fairly late that we did not have any hot water. I called the desk and Peter arrived immediately. It turned out the hot water heater needed to be replaced. He was extremely apologetic and made arrangements for us to use the facilities at the Marina until our hot water heater was replaced. It was fixed 1st thing in the AM and was no big deal.
Before we arrived I had called to see if the kitchen was fully equipped so we could eat in if we wanted to. Although it had the basics I needed a casserole dish, I asked Peter if he could locate one and he went out and bought two. He went well out of his way to be accomodating. He also credited us for one free night due to the lack of hot water although we didn't ask.

We did not eat at the Grill, which is the resteraunt at the marina, or have drinks there. It looked like a really nice place to spend some time but it was also pretty pricey. We loved our little condo and were content to enjoy our own wine there. WE ate at the Red Parrot, the BLack Pearl and an Italian resteraunt up the hill, Puerini's. all were very good.

We walked the Cliff walk and then had Bloody Mary's at the Spiced Pear at the north end of the walk at the Cliffhouse. We toured 3 mansions, The Breakers, the Elms and Marble House. We also took the trolley tour around town and had an afternoon cruise on the Madeline Sailboat.
Newport is a great town and is very easy to get around. An excellent place to walk. We had positive experiences with everyone we encountered. I would surely go back to Forty 1 degrees North.
