  • Great multi-generational family vacation retreat

    "My family of two daughters, sons in law and my grandsons enjoyed a very special week at Kismet. The house is beautifully appointed, with areas we could all be together comfortably (kitchen, living room, spacious deck, pool area) and other semi-private areas where you could visit in smaller groups. The grounds are beautiful, from the koi pond with blooming lotus and a small waterfall, the pool and large yard with full growth trees. Jamestown is a charming, quieter island alternative to Newport and Narragansett with lovely restaurants, great cycling, kayaking, walking trails, fresh fish and vegetables, and lovely views everywhere. We would love to return next summer."

  • 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!"

  • Another wonderful week at the Seaside home

    "We just spent another great week at this Seaside Home. This is the third time that we have rented it, and will definitely be going back. The great location, with the wonderful view of the Bay, is difficult to match. The house is very comfortable, and it is a great place to enjoy the company of friends and children. This time our kids were around, and we enjoyed everything the house had to offer. We were only a few steps away from the water and we enjoyed kayaking and swimming, and the great sunsets sitting around the fire pit. Jonathan is always helpful, and has been most welcoming. We strongly recommend this beautiful home, if you enjoy the tranquility and the beauty of being close to the Sea."

  • Splendid visit to a lovely cottage!

    "Our family (two adults, two grown kids) rented the Windward Cottage for a week of New England seaside vacation. We picked Annlee's cottage on a hunch, and all I can say is, I wish I had been buying lottery tickets that day! The cottage was delightful -- well appointed, pretty landscaping, comfortable furnishings, and perfectly quiet. It made for an excellent base to explore Jamestown and Rhode Island beyond Conanicut Island -- and it was a terrific place to retreat after a busy day. Annlee could not have been a better landlord -- determined to make sure we were as comfortable and as happy with our choice as we could possibly be. In short we strongly recommend the Windward Cottage -- you will not be disappointed!"
