The "four Troublemakers from URI" as our group came to be called all agreed on the wonderful, immaculate and relaxed "situation" we enjoyed at Shells by the Sea. Warm hosts and a friendly little dog escorted us to a large inviting pool where we spent time visiting and splashing through the late afternoon. The grounds are beautifully maintained creating a...

The warmth of Shell and Remmy greeting you at the door made me relax asap. We met two other couples on our trip of July 2013, went back in August 2013 and again this July (met up with the same two couples) and had a great time! Can't wait for the summer 0f 2015!! mk

We love coming to Narragansett but have always had trouble finding a nice play to stay. Our search ended when we found Shells By The Sea. The rooms were quiet, spacious and comfortable. The house is immaculate and the grounds are manicured to perfection. The pool is an added bonus and great for hanging out and relaxing. You're five minutes... More

Wanted a place that was clean, comfortable, and convenient. Found all that and more. Shell and Ned were such gracious hosts- breakfast was delicious and thoughtful. Really nice pool and backyard. The ambience was perfect for our weekend away!

This was our 3rd year staying at this B &B. We vacation in Narraganset every year with 2 other couples and we all agree that we would not even consider staying anywhere else. Shell and Ned are wonderful hosts and make our stay enjoyable. We were greeted with open arms by Shell and her cute little dog, Remmy. Since Shell... More

Our party stayed for a few days. We found it to be an aggressively friendly environment! Comfortable and clean rooms/beds - no complaints there, for sure. As a local, I knew the location but for visitors it is definitely a convenient area to be in and a quiet neighborhood. Plenty of parking. Easy access to convenience stores, food, bars, beach,...

My girlfriend and I were looking for a much needed relaxing weekend, and Shell and Ned made sure that was exactly we got. Beautiful house and very cozy and private sleeping arrangements. The pool out back was heavenly. Their home is very close to everything and we found ourselves regrouping back at the house several times a day. Great hosts,... More

My husband and I were searching for a place to stay for our 20th wedding anniversary...last minute, no planning ahead! Shells by the Sea happened to have a room open. I had never heard of Shells or seen it...did not know what to expect! We were pleasantly surprised by Shell, Ned and their beautiful, sparkling B&B! We were instantly welcomed... More
