  • 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!"

  • Great deal, good hosts!

    "The owner was very easy to speak with and contact. We brought our dog and they were more than accommodating to her. The pictures were exactly as the rental is. There is no queen bed at the location, which for a tall man was hard to sleep in the beds, but in a cape style home I couldn't expect any less. The owner was honest enough to let me know I overpaid and sent a check to me for the refund. It was awaiting in the mailbox upon my arrival home. Overall a great and pleasurable experience. It was extremely clean and smelled great upon arrival. Could not tell pets had been there previously. Would definitely rent again."

  • Immaculate, Interesting and Intimate Rental!

    "I had been looking at this property on VRBO for several years, thinking how quaint it looked. I'm so happy we decided to spend time there! What a fabulous renovation the owners have performed! This was a charming, immaculate and interesting place to stay. It truly has everything you could need including modern kitchen and laundry. We were here in August but I bet anytime of year would be lovely. The owners were very responsive in answering our questions (how to work the air conditioning). The house was almost like staying in a museum with various items used in one room schoolhouses and farms, along with well researched written explanations. The Tiverton area is just lovely. Quiet and quaint but close enough to Newport attractions as well as beaches. The Boat House in Riverton was a wonderful waterside restaurant with locally sourced produce and seafood delivered daily which I highly recommend. We also visited Blithewold Mansion and Gardens which was very nice. Overall very nice vacation and top notch rental property."
