The grounds are beautiful as is the view of the water. The photo I posted was the view from my balcony. Oceancliff II (the Timeshare rental buildings) are old and need work! Our second bedroom looked like a converted walk in closet. It had a double bed (not twins like in most other Timeshare resorts) and it was very hard and uncomfortable. The Master Bedroom was on the second floor and was very large. The bed was comfortable, but, since it was on the top floor, the ceiling was pitched in most areas. The bathroom off of the master was big, but again, was in need of a much needed renovation! The Kitchenette has a sink, coffee maker and under cabinet refrigerator. The Microwave was on a counter on the other side of the Living Room. Oceancliff is located off of Ocean Drive, so it's not too close to the center of Newport. Plan on driving everywhere, since nothing is in walking distance. The price for the rental was extremely reasonable, so I'd recommend it just for that reason alone. We paid less for this 2 bedroom unit than the hotels were charging for 1 room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- OceanCliff Resort was designed and built in 1864 by the architectural firm Peabody & Stearns from Boston who designed the original Breakers and Doris Duke's Rough Point both located on elegant Bellevue Avenue. A wealthy industrialist and member of Mrs. Astor's 400 Club originally used OceanCliff as a private summer residence during the Gilded Age. The estate remained a private summer home until 1954, when it was sold and later converted into an oceanfront retreat to host lavish parties and society affairs. Located on 10 acres of rolling lawns with spectacular ocean views, OceanCliff offers a truly unique blend of breathtaking beauty, world-class cuisine and a professionally trained staff to ensure meticulous attention to every detail of your stay. Twenty-four distinctly stylized guest rooms whisk you back to the 19th century with modern conveniences and stunning oceanfront views. OceanCliff's grand ballroom accommodates from 75-250 guests for dinner and dancing, while a variety of smaller rooms allow for more intimate gatherings. Set amidst the breathtaking splendor of the Narragansett Bay, OceanCliff has inspired generations of brides with some of the most enchanting landscapes in Newport, Rhode Island. Whether you prefer a romantic summer sunset celebration or a unique winter white wedding, OceanCliff offers a variety of wedding and reception options. OceanCliff is located on historic Ocean Drive with easy access to downtown Newport and is only a 90-minute drive from Boston and Hartford. ... more less
