  • No other place like this - incredible!

    "We gathered her for the holiday weekend with our family - grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. There is no way to describe how perfect it was for our holiday celebration! Can't say enough about this house - it has EVERYTHING, is just beautiful and sprawling yet warm and comfortable and homey. The best part of the weekend was that we just stayed in and enjoyed all the house had to offer - fires, cozy couches, perfect dining for a large group, beautiful views, great basement for some family games and just a beautiful family holiday where treasured memories were made. Everyone wanted to know if it would be possible to come back again, and we will certainly do that at the very first opportunity. Thank you so much Jim!"

  • Everything you need for a comfortable stay!

    "This is a cozy, clean, and comfortable cottage in a great location. It's within walking distance to the Van Zandt pier and Battery Park. The visitors center and Thames Street are close but far enough from the traffic and congestion. The neighborhood was very quaint. The yard is private. It was helpful to have a washer and dryer on site too. Kathy was a pleasure to deal with. She is very helpful and responsive."

  • Perfect Spot for Rest and Relaxation - Highly Recommend!

    "Let me begin by saying that the photos of The Sand Home do not do the house justice. Katherine really did think of everything in outfitting the home, from providing all linens (sheets, towels and beach towels), having a fully equipped kitchen, and recreational items (beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, games, and bikes). Our group - 3 couples and 1 single (all adults) - felt the home provided ample private space for us to retreat when we wanted to go our separate ways, as well as ample communal space. We can definitely see how families with children would love it. The covered porch was a perfect setting for group meals (dining table seats 8) and just for relaxing on the rocking chairs and swing. Really great breeze in the mornings and evenings. All the bedrooms have A/C but we really didn't have to use it - the temperature dipped enough in the evening to just open the windows and let the breeze blow in. The home is only a 3 minute walk to Mackerel Cove - the premier swimming spot in Jamestown; 2 minute drive to the closest grocery store and 3 minute drive to the ferry to Newport. You really cannot find a place that is more perfectly situated. Katherine was great - provided very clear instructions for check-in and check-out and responded to emails we sent during our stay. The party before us checked out late, which delayed our check-in (Katherine was uber apologetic about the delay and wanted to take the extra time to make sure the house was ready for us - it was immaculate!). Katherine in turn allowed us to check-out an hour later at the tail end. Katherine also provided some great recommendations for local eats and activities. The one thing folks should note - the upstairs bathroom has a clawfoot tub which is better suited for baths and giving children a quick wash - all those in my group felt more comfortable using the shower downstairs (we have old knees and couldn't squat for too long). In sum, we had an awesome time, would definitely stay at The Sand Home again and would highly recommend the home to others looking for a wonderful place to get away from it all!"

  • A week in wonderland!

    "Phenomenal! From the moment we drove down the tree lined road we were captivated. Our arrival took our breath away. The house is idyllic. We were right on the water and the views from several rooms were amazing. The dock was a perfect launch site for our kayak and canoe. We were able to boat to the private beach and enjoy near total privacy. In the evenings we enjoyed just relaxing in the yard and watching the wildlife. There was something for everyone in our group ages 6-53. We rode bikes to the tennis courts, went to Ninigret park and had fun on the playground and fresh water beach, ideal for the little ones. The observatory was open on Friday with amazing views of the night sky. The house itself was unbelievable. Every little detail was taken care of. There was an abundance of high quality plates, glassware, pots and pans. Every kitchen item you could possibly need was ready and waiting. There was even a wonderful collection of spices available. I have never stayed in such a finely appointed rental. There were games and puzzles available. The home was so cozy and comforting. The screen porch was the perfect place for watching the sun rise and for cooling off at night. It truly felt like we were at home. I am already trying to plan a family reunion at this location and the home next door, same owners. An incredible home in an amazing location!"
