  • Family of Four - extended stay

    "We had the privilege of spending three months in this lovely home and based on our wonderful experience we highly recommend booking this home to anyone looking to stay in Newport. The house is absolutely charming - recently and completely renovated with all modern conveniences but yet maintains its historical roots. The house is fully stocked with linens, all necessary kitchen utensils, small appliances, pots and pans, etc, and the owners even have wooden blocks, markers/paper, and serving ware for children. Beds were all very comfortable, house was spotless upon arrival, yard is large with lots of room to spread out, and the house is in a perfect location…5 minute walk to downtown, less than 5 minute walk to the water, but yet it’s a very quiet location so you don’t feel like you’re located in the hustle and bustle of the city. The owners are absolutely wonderful - quick to respond, very organized, and truly set us up for success during our stay. We have stayed in many VRBO homes over the years in the US and abroad, and our stay in Newport was fantastic thanks to this terrific home and the wonderful owners."

  • 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!"

  • RI Beach House

    "We spent two weeks at this home. Our second year. It is near the beaches and on a quiet street. The new gas grill was a nice addition as we cooked outside every night. The lawn was mowed twice and the shrubs pruned once so the property looks very well kept. The owners and property mangers were responsive to any questions. Perfect spot for any family with animals."

  • No other place like this - incredible!

    "We gathered her for the holiday weekend with our family - grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. There is no way to describe how perfect it was for our holiday celebration! Can't say enough about this house - it has EVERYTHING, is just beautiful and sprawling yet warm and comfortable and homey. The best part of the weekend was that we just stayed in and enjoyed all the house had to offer - fires, cozy couches, perfect dining for a large group, beautiful views, great basement for some family games and just a beautiful family holiday where treasured memories were made. Everyone wanted to know if it would be possible to come back again, and we will certainly do that at the very first opportunity. Thank you so much Jim!"
