Rhode Island real estate has plenty to offer for people looking for water access. 

We're not talking about just views from a window or deck. Water access means either being able to walk to the beach, a private deck, mooring or deeded rights to a body of water.

Typically, that kind of access costs big bucks, especially when the house in question is more than a couple hundred square feet.

This week, we chose five homes for sale in Rhode Island that offer real water access for a reasonable price.

1. 118 Howland Ave., Middletown - $569,000. This handsome colonial has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and has nearly an acre of land surrounding it. Best of all, you're within footsteps of Third Beach as well as the Norman Bird Sanctuary. If you're looking for a private retreat abutting conserved land, this might be the ticket. Built in 2002, the house includes central air, a living room with fire place, master suite with private balcony and more.

2. 39 Blue Bill Way, Portsmouth - $289,000 - This would make a great summer house, especially if you have a boat since the house offers a mooring, which is being offered along with a small boat in the sale. Built in 1930, the house has a knockout price for being situated right on the water. New septic and appliances are included. 

3. 505 Shore Acres Ave., North Kingstown - $499,900 - Not only do you get sunsets overlooking Wickford Harbor from this house, you also get a private mooring. This two-bedroom, 1-bathroom house offers 1,537 square feet of living space, hardwood floors, a fireplace, granite kitchen and more. Consider this house was on the market for nearly $700,000 in 2003.

4. 125 Hummocks Ave., Portsmouth - $789,000 - This renovated waterfront home sits on the west face of a bluff overlooking the water. With 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 1,860 square feet of living space, there's plenty of room for summer as well as year-round living. And best of all, you get a permanent dock and beach frontage, easily accessible with a stairway leading straight from the house. 

5. 43 Flintstone Road, Narragansett - $469,000 - This is the quintessential Cape Cod cottage with water views, a nice deck and porch and a kayak launch right across the street. And when you're done frolicking, you can cool off and get the sand off in an outdoor shower. Three bedrooms, one-and-a-half bathrooms and 1,490 square feet of living space offer roominess on the outside with a seemingly small footprint on the outside.
