  • Surfer's Paradise

    "This was a return trip after a few years' away, and everything was as relaxed and enjoyable as it was before. This was an 'empty nester' trip so the smaller cottage was just right for us. Beth and Dave were their usual helpful and friendly selves. You feel at home for your stay, and not tourist stop. Best possible location too. 5 stars."

  • Great experience

    "Lovely home and location. Interior outfitted to make one feel right at home. Back yard was perfect for several challenging croquet matches. The sunsets from the deck made our martinis taste better than ever. For sight seeing, the walks at Fort Wetherill State Park, casual dining at Fish in Jamestown, taking the ferry across Narragansett Bay, or upscale dining at 41 North in Newport were all great."

  • 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!"

  • Beautiful Home! Perfect Location!

    "Stayed in Kristine's home recently with a group of 12 friends for a wedding near by. The house was perfectly maintained and the pictures do not do the space justice. We had plenty of room to sleep across 5 bedrooms and common areas to spend time together. The house is BEAUTIFUL! The house is walking distance to many of Newport's best spots which made our stay more enjoyable. Kristine was honest, available, and more importantly reliable. I can not say enough nice things about the owner and the property! We will be back!"
