Nice cozy location with wonderful grounds. Had to pool to ourselves, Cozy rooms! I wish we could have spent more time. My only suggestion would be to have nice mellow music piped out to pool area on low volume during the daytime.

A fantastic getaway!

We decided to try a bed and breakfast for a few days away during the off-season on the coast of Rhode Island. This far exceeded our expectations. The Villa was beautiful, comfortable, and clean. The private jacuzzi tub with candles and bath salts was a pleasant surprise. The food was fantastic, and the Cardiffs were wonderful hosts with extensive knowledge of the area. Their recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants made a quick getaway perfect. We will definitely return!

Great stay, but pay attention to the fine print

While my husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Villa, we were highly disappointed that they did not honor Bed and gift certificates, forcing us to pay the full amount. They insist that they do not participate with Bed and even though they are listed as one of the three in Westerly, and the first to appear on the page. Overall however, a very relaxing stay.

A cozy and romantic experience

Definitely one of the best places to stay along the RI shore. Convenient location not far from the beach and yet relatively quiet. Clean and well maintained. Nicely decorated rooms with good amenities. Comfortable beds. Friendly helpful and knowledgable innkeepers who seem to have thought about the needs of their guests. We will return.

We've stayed here several times. It's quiet, relaxing and so comfortable. We have a choice of breakfast foods, time, and location. There are refreshments by the pool. Now it feels like we're coming home.

Our Stay at The Villa

The Innkeepers, Michael and Barbara, made our stay a great experience for my husband and myself. Warm and friendly, they made us feel so welcome and more than just paying guest to their beautiful Inn. Our room was romantic overlooking the courtyard. The view of the Inn and grounds made you feel like you were in another time and place. The pictures of the Inns rooms have not been updated, they have been remodeled and are so lovely. Our full breakfast of many choices, was served to us in our room and where so very very good and generous. We can not wait to go back and be pampered and enjoy the Inn and it's keepers, we feel we left as friends.

Great Place

Really enjoyed staying here. The owners were very personable and the food was great. Only thing is I think the price is a little high.
