My wife and I spent our first anniversary at Cliff Walk Cottage on the Sea. After spending hour after hour reviewing each of the various b&b's located in Newport, I ultimately choose Cliff Walk Cottage because it appeared to be very close to the Cliff Walk. Upon arrival, I realized I was mistaken yet pleasantly surprised because the home is, literally, on the Cliff Walk. The views of the cliff walk, coastline and beach are unobstructed and unmatched. Another pleasant surprise was the food and service. What was advertised on the website as "afternoon/sunset wine & hors d’oeuvres" should have read "relax on the private patio and watch the sun set over the coast while enjoying a bottle of the finest champagne and a table full of homemade hors d'oeuvres from onsite chef, Stuart." Another pleasant surprise was the "continental breakfast" was closer to a 4-course breakfast spread also freshly prepared by Stuart. Do not make the same mistake I made and spend your valuable time searching for that perfect place to stay. Call Stuart and Jennie and book NOW"
