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

We were looking for the ideal family home close to the beach and found this home only steps away from the 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.

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

Great house with all you need

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a quiet area of Jamestown and right next to a local beach. The house is filled with all the amenities any family needs for a week at a vacation home for cooking, grilling sleeping, entertaining and relaxing. Jamestown is just over the bridge from Newport where a wide range of restaurant, bars and shops are located for those looking to leave the quiet of Jamestown. The owner is quick to respond to any communication. We had a fantastic time and would definitely return.

Great Vacation Home in Jamestown, RI

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation home! Our family enjoyed being so close to the beach and sitting on the front porch watching beautiful sunsets! The house was equipped with everything we needed. The area had good restaurants and was a short ride into Newport. We will definitely rent this property again!

Outstanding Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully designed home offered the right blend of space and intimacy for our family. My elderly dad was able to easily maneuver into his room, and loved being able to walk to the small beach area and sit in the shade during the day. The other rooms were perfect for me, my sister and brother and our spouses. We had great family meals, played music, rode bikes, walked, relaxed....all in all could not have asked for a more memorable vacation. Only problem? The time slipped by too quickly. Can't wait to return!

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family needed a getaway and this was the perfect rental house, including the location and amenities. There is plenty of storage for your belongings, amble lighting and seating throughout the entire house. It's a good size house for a large group. Everything was new and tastefully decorated, while the kitchen was fully equipped for every possible need. This rental felt like home with all the conveniences such as a Smart TV, video games, DVDs, beach chairs, boogie boards and the outside shower. The beds and linens felt as if we were in a 5 star hotel. The owners have thought of everything!

We really enjoyed our morning coffee on the front deck overlooking the beach and having our meals outside whenever we had the chance, including the fresh caught clams we steamed and enjoyed! Even our four legged friend enjoyed the scenery along with the daily walks around the quiet neighborhood. The access to the beach was priceless, not to mention all the white seashells to admire!

So quiet, but yet so close to everything, the location was very ideal. We are looking forward to coming back again next year. Can't wait!

Definitely Going Back!

  • 5 of 5

A group of college friends and I had the pleasure of renting this beautiful property for a week, to celebrate our 60th birthdays! We considered a few other properties, but are thrilled that we chose this one!! I loved it so much that I hope to return next year with my husband, adult children, and their families ! It’s the perfect place for making lasting memories!

The newly renovated interior of the cottage has windows and skylights that allow natural light to pour in, and I found every room to be clean and meticulously cared for, with a bright and inviting decor! There was plenty of comfortable gathering space, with the open floor plan in the upstairs and large bonus room in the basement. The kitchen was well equipped, for easy meal preparation. We were able to keep the inside temperature quite pleasant, as there is central air, plus a ceiling fan in every room! The spacious laundry room (full sized washer and dryer) on the lower level was very convenient, as was the outside shower. The well-maintained backyard is flat, grassy and shady and a great place for children (and adults!) to play!

The close proximity to Sunset Beach was fantastic! It was just a short walk across the street and once there, it was like having our own private beach! We loved sitting on the front deck with a drink in hand, watching the beautiful sunsets over the bay. Plus, the location of this property provides an abundance of activities to choose from in the surrounding area. My friends and I took advantage of as much as we could! We swam and floated on rafts in the clean, calm water of the bay, carried our kayaks to Sunset Beach and paddled to the Jamestown Bridge, went clamming on Sunset Beach (found enough clams for a feast), rode bikes around the neighborhood, attended a polo match, and visited Beavertail Park and Lighthouse Museum. We walked the Newport Cliff Walk, drove around looking at Newport mansions, shopped and lunched in downtown Newport, and shopped and had dinner in Jamestown. The beauty of it is that you can opt to do everything or nothing at all!

I really can’t say enough about this home or its owners, who were extremely accommodating and easy to work with and I would very highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit the Jamestown/Newport area.

Note - Things you might want to bring: water shoes, boogie boards/rafts, gloves and small hand rake (for digging clams), kayaks, paddle boards, bikes, and fishing gear.
