"Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful week in Jamestown at "The Waves” cottage in June... The apartment exceeded all our expectations in every way... It was very private, super clean, and exceptionally well appointed... The apartment has all the charm and character of a Nantucket cottage with the added benefit of all the modern conveniences like an open layout, skylights, central air conditioning, and super fast wi-fi… The apartment has an amazing gourmet kitchen… Everything a cook could want is right at your fingertips from EVOO to fresh ground pepper… We found a wonderful local seafood shop in Jamestown called “Zeke’s Creek Seafood, Bait & Tackle”… The owner was super nice and the seafood was simply outstanding… We enjoyed cooking almost every night and couldn’t wait to get home… From pan seared scallops with fresh asparagus to Little neck clams linguine, and Lobsters on the grill… I can’t recall ever enjoying cooking so much while on vacation than our time at “The Waves”… It's only a short walk to downtown Jamestown and all the shops and restaurants… Also an easy walk to nearby Mackerel Cove beach and Beavertail State Park offering some of the most spectacular vistas along the New England coastline.... Historic Newport is just a short car or ferry ride away... We enjoyed an amazing day trip to Martha’s Vineyard… With two teenager’s, we spent our only rainy day at the Premium outlets in Wrentham, Mass which is less than an hour away and the girls couldn’t have been happier… After a day of shopping, we had dinner and took in a movie at the nearby Patriot Place located at Gillette Stadium. We would highly recommend a stay at "The Waves” cottage… It’s very clear that Betsy goes way out of her way to make everything very very special for all her guests... Already looking forward to next time…"

"We had a lovely stay this past weekend (8 girls) - it was exactly as presented. We had a private chef come in Friday and the kitchen was fully equipped. The 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms gave everyone plenty of space especially with the living room and library. A short 10 minute walk gets you down to Thames street to explore Newport. We would definitely stay again!"

"Our first trip to Newport-- could not have been better. We felt so fortunate to be able to open the front door every evening and call this place "home" during our stay. The beautiful decor and warm colors welcome you in and make it hard to leave. Newport has so much to offer, it was a delight to be able to explore it all on foot from this home's perfect location. Our favorite casual restaurant, Brick Alley, was just around the corner.
Helen is an absolutely delightful host! It is obvious to anyone who gets to stay here, that she takes great pride in maintaining her house and doing everything to make sure her guests feel welcome.
If you are thinking of visiting Newport, think no longer about where to stay-- it doesn't get better than this!"

"Linda & Greg, Your Quonnie beach house was wonderful, and very spacious. We loved having our family visit us. The deck was super we ate outside every day. We clammed and brought our paddle board too! Great location, centrally located very close to the beaches great for walking also! Thanks for a great spot!!!"
