About the property

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Enjoy the relaxing ‘Island Life’, where you can walk to the beach, watch boats go by and take pleasure in beautiful sunsets, from the deck of this charming 1,700 square foot, 3-bedroom, 2-bath cottage with water views of the West Passage of Narragansett Bay.

Situated in a quiet family neighborhood, this bright and comfortable cottage features an open and dining area. The open kitchen and island are perfect for gathering after a day on the beach or through the glass sliding door to the covered deck to watch the sunset. Spanning the entire length of the cottage, the deck allows endless enjoyment of the refreshing sea air, and the parade of boats out on the water. Set up croquet in the yard, while enjoying the beautiful sunsets.

The spacious living room opens to the deck, as does the master bedroom, with its own sliding door to the deck and water views. A finished walk-out lower level, with a full bathroom, round out the amenities of this charming home by the sea, which is nestled within one of Narragansett Bay's most desirable island communities.

An added bonus feature is the downstairs spacious living area, with recreation area perfect for kids, including TV/Blu-ray and games, while parents entertain upstairs. The house is equipped with anything you could ask for! TV, Blu-ray, board games, books, WiFi, beach chairs and towels with the beach right down the street. Bring your kayak and explore the coast.

About Jon

My wife and I are avid adventure travelers, who like to explore new countries and cultures. We have grown up and been around water all of our lives. Having settled in the upstate NY Albany area, we enjoy skiing in the winter and the local lakes in the summer, but missed the open water. Getting a place on the water in Jamestown has been wonderful! There is much to explore and do on the island, and it's only a short hop over the bridge to all the bustle and activity in Newport.

Jon has retired from a long career in commercial building services and now focuses on finding, renovating and operating choice vacation rental properties in Jamestown. Jon continues to sail and race competitively when he can.

Mary Ellen continues her passion of leading STRIDE Adaptive Sports, a non-profit organization she founded as an outgrowth of her teaching career, providing sports and recreational activities for youth and Wounded Warriors with disabilities.

Jon purchased this house in 2011

Why Jon chose Jamestown Shores

We love the Jamestown/Newport area. There is great sailing, biking, diving/snorkeling, and beaches. We enjoy the activities and sights of Newport with the more relaxed atmosphere of Jamestown island.

What makes this house unique

This house is ideal for a family to relax. The covered deck overlooks a large back yard with water views of Narragansett Bay. The house sits on a very quiet street on a short walking distance to the community beach.

The newly renovated kitchen provides a focal point for family and friends to gather and the large family room downstairs provides a 'getaway' for the kids.

Fantastic Location! Relaxing Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, easy to get to Newport for a night out downtown, yet just as much fun to play Bocci in the backyard and get Fresh Lobsters for the very Nice Grill! Wonderful Time!!!!

Great home with relaxing deck looking over the ocean. Incredible sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

Home had ample space for our family of 7. We enjoyed cooking in the modern kitchen as well as exploring the wonderful restaurants nearby. We especially enjoyed the lovely beach at sandy Cove and meeting some locals. The ocean was calm and clear and our daughter swam all day long. I would highly recommend this vacation home.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Jamestown was very relaxing and enjoyable. The house was well equipped, and clean. The view from the deck was fabulous. Newport and great Rhode Island beaches were just a short drive away. The owner was very responsive and even made a mid-week visit to take care of a minor problem! Thank you!

Another amazing week in Jamestown!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed another incredible week in beautiful Jamestown!

This was our third summer renting this house, & as in the past two summers, it couldn't have been any more relaxing and convenient! The view of the water from the deck just never gets old, & the neighborhood is just so ideal for walking and biking with the beautiful Sunset Beach right down the road totally living up to it's name! Our teenage boys and their friends went to several different beaches from Newport to Narragansett, & then many nights enjoyed the spacious lower level to hang out & watch movies...plenty of room in this house for all! We lucked out this year renting the week of the 4th

of July and were treated to some amazing fireworks from the various towns with perfect viewing right from the back deck!

Needless to say, we will be back...this house has everything...from beach chairs & boogie boards to all your kitchen & bath

needs...can't wait to return next year!
