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 2014

Why Jon chose Jamestown Shores

We were looking for the ideal family home close to the beach and found this home only steps away from Sunset Beach in the desirable Jamestown Shores area of the Island.

What makes this house unique

Walk across the street to the beach, or sit on the deck and watch the boats go by. With cathedral ceilings, the open floor plan of the living room and dining / kitchen area is perfect to gather and relax after a day at the beach. As an added benefit, I added central air conditioning to the home in November 2015.

Fabulous Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a wonderful vacation rental! Quiet area where you could watch the sunset over the water from the deck. Home was well equipped. Newport is close if you want more action. Pet friendly yet there was no evidence of previous pets that may have stayed before us. The house has been updated and it shows. Every room is awesome. When it came time to go home no one wanted to leave! Definitely a sign of a great vacation!!! We would definitely recommend this rental!

Great house! Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. The pictures don't do it justice. It's spacious and nicely decorated. The owner is easy to work with and a pleasure to rent from. Quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. The front deck is great for relaxing. Fantastic water views and breathtaking sunsets. You won't be disappointed.

Outstanding Summer Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year vacationing in Jamestown. My only fear in writing this review is that the whole world will discover what a great place Jamestown is, and we'll have trouble booking our next vacation! The house is ideal for family gatherings, with a great kitchen, large open gathering spaces, lovely rooms, and two floors so that the kids can stay up late downstairs and the old folks upstairs won't hear a thing. Lovely views of the water, charming small rocky beach nearby and a short drive to a sandy beach, fabulous Beavertail State Park - and, if you're in the mood for crowds - Newport. The owner is totally professional, courteous and prompt in responding to any questions. Can't say enough good things about this place.

Owner's Response: Shhhh.....Everyone will find out about Jamestown. Thanks Diane! I'm glad you had another wonderful stay. We love the relaxed, seaside charm of Jamestown. Just a bridge apart from Newport, but a world away!

Cozy house right across from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great house right by the beach! The backyard is spacious enough to play outdoor games and the town has a couple good restaurants. Newport is a close drive too for more shopping and dining!

The perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Jamestown. The home is located in a very peaceful neighborhood and has a terrific view of sunset. The house is kept very clean and had everything we needed. The owners are extremely responsive and friendly. We were there with our older children and grandchildren and the downstairs level allowed for a great area for the kids to hang out and play on their own. The house is centrally located and the ferry ride to Newport was a very nice way to travel. It is close to the Jamestown Bridge and Newport Bridge so it was a short ride to the neighboring towns for restaurants and shopping. There is a private beach across the street as well as a town beach Mackerel Cove just a few miles away which we enjoyed. It was everything we could have asked for and more. We would definitely rent again!

Wonderful, clean, well equipped home by a quiet beach.

  • 5 of 5

Had a terrific time at this location with my husband, two daughters and my granddaughter and son-in-law. The home with separate downstairs area was ideal. Not appropriate for loud parties. Was a nice, quiet neighborhood by the water. Loved the outdoor shower too! Exceeded our expectations! Louisa
