Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: The owner is a psychotherapist and mother of two. We enjoy traveling, kayaking , sailing and hiking. We have lived in the main house and rented The Waves Carriage House apartment to seasonal guests for the past six years. We enjoyed those friendships and many repeat guests (check out the reviews for VRBO listing #295490). Now, for the 2016 and 2017 summer season, The Waves' main house and carriage house are offered together (totaling 4,100 sq. ft). Neither owner nor other guests will be present during your stay. Guests can expect the same quality vacation experience that has consistently earned 5-star reviews in the past.

Why the Owner Chose Mackerel Cove (Jamestown, RI, USA):
Jamestown (pop 6,000) is unique on the Eastern Seaboard because of its incomparable beauty, relaxed atmosphere, and multiple access points to Narragansett Bay. Popular Newport is just 12 minutes away via the Pell/Newport Bridge. The Jamestown Ferry is a fun way to access downtown Newport and Rose Island in summer, or purchase an all-day ticket and spend a day on Narragansett Bay. You can catch the fast ferry to Block Island for a day of hiking or biking. Metropolitan centers of Providence, Boston and New York City are conveniently accessed via Interstate 95, Amtrak and TF Green Airport.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Travelers in the know often prefer to rent in laid-back Jamestown (on Conanicut Island), rather than bustling Newport. Jamestown is quieter, less expensive and lacks the tourist crowds and long lines of Newport. At the height of summer in Jamestown, you can bike to local farm stands, walk downtown to dine outdoors, and set up a lawn chairs to enjoy free outdoor Sunday concerts. You might find your own private beach at Beavertail Lighthouse, strike up a conversation with locals, or stay home, fire up the grille and stargaze in your own backyard. Children's activities include a good playground, library story hours, art classes, farm visits, and Beavertail Lighthouse & Aquarium. Newport is close enough by car, but a world apart.
