  • 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!"

  • Very satisfied

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at our rented condo in Jamestown. It was clean and comfortable. We were told we needed to bring our personal items and food all else would be there. It was. The beds are wonderfully comfortable. The staff did a great job mid week and we would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone. They were working on the bridge so some noise outside but not noticeable inside, evening and weekends very peaceful and quiet. There were issues with the pool, which they were working on and provisions were made with another local hotel for swimming. This should be resolved very soon. All in all a wonderful stay. The owner provided complete service and was always helpful in recommendations for attractions and restaurants."

  • Super duper!

    "This is a such a nice home, well furnished and great location. The owner was exceptional, great to work with. He takes great detail to make sure things are nice. Bedrooms are spacious. Great front porch sitting area, we enjoyed that a lot in the mornings especially. Very nice convenience store within walking distance for food/snacks. Easy walk to restaurants and ocean. We would go back! It was a comfy & fun stay!"

  • Great place that perfectly suited our family!

    "The house was amazing and very well priced for Jamestown. The place was spotlessly clean when we arrived (including a welcoming note and pastry from the owner!). The layout is very spacious for a family of 3-4 or 2 couples. Our kids (4 & 7) had plenty of space to stretch out and play in the living area. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, by far the best I have encountered at a rental. We could have cooked a feast without any problem! The owner lives part time next door and was very welcoming and friendly. All the information we needed upon check-in was readily available in a helpful brief. Everything was exactly as promised and listed on the VRBO site. The location was very close to the beach (although we didn't go because of the time of year) and to town. The local grocery store is a short 5 minute walk, just at the end of the street. We spent most of our time with family that also lives on the island for Christmas holiday so we didn't really try the local restaurants. Overall, I couldn't image a better experience! I would definitely recommend Waves to anyone planning a trip to Jamestown and we will stay there on our next trip back. We did opt for the 2 bedroom option, which I would recommend for any more than 2 people."
