About the property

A quiet haven in the heart of Downtown Newport with the most spectacular views!

This extremely desirable property boasts four spacious bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room and a half bath. The dining room, living room, kitchen and half bath occupy the first floor, which is the perfect space for entertaining family and friends. The living room includes a large sofa, two love seats, television, DVD player with a few movies and board games for an occasional rainy day. A large hall closet keeps your beach gear at the ready. The kitchen is fully loaded and includes stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher and microwave. The property is graced with hardwoods and ceramic tile throughout. The second floor contains three bedrooms, a full bath and utility closet with brand new stackable washer and dryer. The third floor is essentially a private suite, comprised of the fourth bedroom and attached full bath. With the exception of one full-sized bed, all bedrooms contain queen-sized beds. Ample closets and full dressers enhance each bedroom. And there are a few desks and chairs for those that need to “stay connected.” The pièce de résistance is the “fourth floor”…one of Newport’s most spectacular roofdecks, offering amazing views of the harbor and bridge. Some of the finest sunsets are experienced here, bar none. A quaint courtyard patio with grill, just outside the back door, completes the package.

Park your car in the private driveway (a guest pass for residential street parking for a guest’s car is also included) and forget about it, as you’re not likely to need it much, if at all here in Newport’s popular Yachting Village. Relax and enjoy a peaceful retreat, literally steps from some of the finest restaurants, nightlife and shops Newport has to offer. Beaches are a leisurely stroll or a lightening-fast car ride away. Tackle Newport’s Cliff Walk for a glimpse of some of the world’s finest and most historic mansions and pick a couple to see up close and personal. Visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the famous Newport Folk Festival or Newport Jazz Festival. Take a harbor cruise on the deck of an America’s Cup Yacht, hit the links JFK style or see Newport from the sky via helicopter tour. These are just a few of the amenities at your fingertips from this lovely property.

Why Shannon Dunnigan chose Yachting Village

A dear friend from college and I purchased this property after enjoying many summers In Newport. One summer we observed the spectacular renovations that went on with this property and had to make it ours!

What makes this townhome unique

I've spent a lot of time in Newport and have enjoyed many views. This roof deck offers one of the most spectacular views in all of Newport!

Guestbook comments from the owner

[This is from a Five Star Review of the property, posted on the "Newport Townhouse" page on Facebook.]

This beautiful, four bedrooom, townhouse is a gem and conveniently located just off Thames Street. Every restaurant we dined at was within walking distance. One of our favorites, Scales and Shells, is around the corner, just a few steps away. All of the rooms were very clean, nicely decorated and spacious. My favorite part of the house was the (quiet) large rooftop deck which offered amazing views of the harbor and some of the most beautiful sunsets. And you will never find nicer owners!

Fabulous Newport house!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Shannon's house for our sailors who were resting while in Newport for the Volvo Ocean Race stopover. Shannon was great and accommodated a change of schedule resulting in an earlier arrival at very short notice which was greatly appreciated! The house itself is fantastic with 4 large bedrooms, in a great location and spotlessly clean. Great kitchen & living area with plenty of seating for larger groups. Very enjoyable stay and we hope to stay again next time we visit Newport!

Beautiful condo, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about this condo! I stayed here with my friends for a girls weekend and it was exactly what we needed. There were plenty of beds/baths, it’s clean and well kept, and we were able to enjoy the roof deck and water views with the weather we had! You can’t beat the location, right downtown and within walking distance to everything. Shannon was so helpful and answered a few questions we had to help with planning, which was great! I would highly recommend and would absolutely stay here again. Thanks for a great weekend!

Walk to all

  • 5 of 5

Having just gotten home from our trip to Newport, I couldn't wait to leave a review for this lovely home. Although the weather was not cooperative, we still were able to walk to many restaurants and and Newport center. Not needing to move our car to search for parking lessened the stress of the trip. The townhouse is huge! much larger than anticipated. We went up to the roofdeck to check out the water views, but rain, wind and cold prevented being able to stay for long. Everyone, including our two dogs, were very comfortable. We look forward to planning another trip.
