  • Great house for an extended family vacation

    "We had an extended family of 15 and this house served our needs perfectly! It was clean and well kept, spacious and cheerful with many separate areas for everyone to have their own space. We had 4 small children and there was ample room for them to spread out either upstairs on the deck, the two living rooms, or downstairs in the screened in porch. The swing set was also a hit, conveniently located off of the back patio. Everyone had their own bedrooms and there was never a problem with fighting over bathrooms. The front porch was a nice bonus and the house is on a quiet street, nice for walks down to the pond. The linens and towels were clean and of good quality, and made the stay much more homey. The owner, Robin, certainly thought of everything and was super accommodating and easy to communicate with. Any issues we had were minor and were addressed quickly. We had an absolutely wonderful time and enjoyed the proximity to beaches and the convenience of stores and restaurants close by. I would highly recommend this rental to others wishing for a nice house for a big family to stay in."

  • 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!"

  • Perfect spot to make vacation memories!

    "This house offers everything as described! We just got back from staying at this amazing home on Bonnet Shores which provided a beautiful place for family bonding and memory making. There are 14 people in our group ranging from 4-64 and there was plenty of room for everyone. We took advantage of the yard for games, the kitchen for luau and mardi-gras parties, and the large table for family dinners and card games. Morning coffee on the deck with the sounds of the ocean was a favorite of the early risers. The owners are friendly and helpful and the house is in pristine condition with plenty of parking. During our stay we visited Newport, Point Judith as well as 3 easy to get to beaches, Narragansett Town Beach was our favorite. Hope to vacation here again next summer!"
