CLASSIC STYLE, QUIET VILLAGE LOCATION, STEPS FROM MACKEREL COVE

Jamestown (Conanicut Island) Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Choose 1- or 2-BR layout with Full Bath, Living/Dining/Kitchen, sleeps 2-5.

This charming one or two-bedroom apartment is conveniently located in the desirable south end of Jamestown Village, about mid-way between East Ferry and West Ferry. You can easily walk to Mackerel Cove, downtown restaurants and shops, Jamestown Arts Center, several beaches, tennis, golf, and catch a bus or ferry for a day trip to Newport. This peaceful oasis is surrounded by mature shade trees, stone walls, perennial gardens and fruiting blueberry bushes. Architect-designed and custom built in 2010, The Waves apartment is attached to the main house but is utterly private, with its own yard and outside entrance. There's convenient off-street parking just steps from the apartment door, with on-street parking available for additional cars.

Elegant styling with every modern convenience, including central air conditioning throughout. The open layout combines living/dining/kitchen area. Cathedral ceilings, skylights and a central cupola create a bright and airy interior. In the living room, French doors open to a west-facing balcony with sunset views and sea breezes. There's a gourmet kitchen with cherry-top bar and four stools, granite counter tops, quality cookware and elegant barware. The living room has hardwood floors, while bedrooms are carpeted and the bathroom floor is tile. For those who prefer cross-ventilation to air conditioning, there are numerous screened windows and ceiling fans in every room. Amenities include cable TV, large flat-screen TV with DVD, free Wi-Fi for your laptop, and stereo dock for your IPod.

The layout is flexible, and allows you to choose the number of bedrooms you need. The standard layout (740 sq. ft.) has one bedroom with a Queen bed, bureau and walk-in closet. Open a door off the hallway, and there's an optional, large second bedroom (17' x 22'). The second bedroom has a Queen bed, bureau, closet and seating area featuring a comfy couch, three chairs and a coffee table. With this option, the apartment totals 1,115 sq. ft. Which layout to choose? For a single person or couple (1 or 2 people sharing one bed) the one-bedroom layout is a good, economical choice. For two couples, or two singles, or a family with children (2-5 persons) the 2-bedroom layout is a must. Bed linens, towels and beach towels are included.

Interior appopintments were inspired by New York Yacht Club's original yachting station in Newport (now The Moorings). America's Cup memorabilia includes museum-quality half models of U.S. defenders of the America's Cup Races, from J-Boats to Twelve-Meter Yachts. Well stocked library.

The pleasant backyard is bordered by perennial beds and high-bush blueberries (pick your fill in July and August). There's a small patio with gas BBQ grille and a dining table that seats four for al fresco dining out of doors.

Supplies include: Paper products, soap, wraps, spices and basic staples for the kitchen. Convenience items include hairdryer, iron and ironing board, board games, playing cards, flashlights, barbecue utensils, lobster pot and crackers, a good reading library, and guides to area attractions. If there's something more you need, just ask!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for allowing us to share such a lovely apartment. The pictures on VRBO don't do it justice. It worked perfectly for our family of 4. A few pointers for future guests: Restaurants: Slice of Heaven (in town; excellent breakfast); Chopmist Charlie's (in town; great seafood); Simpatico (great food and ambience); The Landing in Newport (great views and good food; The Black pearl, Newport (decent food). Things to do: 1) Take express ferry to Block Island for the day. Rent a car or moped. Aldos good for lunch & ice cream. Wear appropriate shoes for Mohegan Bluff. Two lighthouses worth seeing. 2) Cliff Walk, Newport: 40 steps and the Mansions. 3) Fort Adams: it's worth paying for the guided tour (only way to enter the fort. 4)Strolling thgrough Newport. 5) Mackerel Cove Beach - go earlier in day because it's groomed everyday and gets seaweedy in afternoon. 6) Beavertail Lighthouse: Pack a picnic lunch and eat it on the grass amid crashing waves and great views of Newport. 7) Take pictures on Jamestown windmill. 8) We wanted to go whale watching but couldn't find time in the schedule. FYI, they only run Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays starting 1:00-5:30 pm

Owner is a psychotherapist and mother of two. We are deeply involved in the community and enjoy our island life. I'm happy to steer guests to local sailing, kayaking, tennis, golf, beaches, galleries, restaurants,Newport mansions, nearby islands, and hidden gems -- whatever interests you.

Betsy Gooding purchased this apartment in 2010

Jamestown offers unsurpassed quality of life that combines small town ambience, scenic beauty and numerous enrichment activities for children. We incorporated a separate guest wing when we we built in 2010 because we love to entertain and to welcome guests to Jamestown. Location is 3 blocks from Mackerel Cove beach, on a quiet street.

Jamestown is unique on the Eastern Seaboard because of its incomparable beauty, rural character, working farms, multiple access points to Narragansett Bay, and relaxed atmosphere. As year-round residents, we enjoy walking access to fine restaurants, marinas, galleries, churches, hiking trails, town offices, an excellent public library, recreation center and business district. Newport is just 10 minutes away by car; the Jamestown Ferry is a fun way to access downtown Newport and Rose Island in summer. Jamestown offers easy access to major metropolitan areas via Route 95 and T.F. Green Airport.

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My family has been coming to Jamestown for years and so we know the island well and love it. We needed to find a new place to stay, though, and we were so fortunate to have found this lovely apartment. The owners obviously put great thought into the apartment's design (it's a separate apartment attached to a new home) and furnishings. The furniture is attractive and comfortable, the decorations are tasteful, and the entire apartment is well stocked with towels, good quality dinnerware, pots, pans, and kitchen utensils. There are even beach chairs available for use! So thoughtful and so much more than many beach homes for rent. The house is almost halfway between the small grocery store on the island and the beach, so it's convenient to everything. We plan on returning next year!

LOVELY AND IMMACULATE

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was quite enjoyable. The apartment was decorated beautifully and attention to detail was evident. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and paper goods. Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas...in great condition. The beds were comfy. The gardens around the home were beautiful and attracted birds and butterflies.

The neighborhood is quiet and a nice walk to Mackeral Cove Beach. The beach is small and not crowded at all during the week. Water was clean. A bit of trash on the beach should have been cleaned up at the end of each day, but it wasn't terrible.

I came with my 12 year old daughter and her friend. We all had a great time. The location is wonderful, close to town, beach and Newport.

WONDERFUL VACATION APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely apartment and is well-equipped, clean, and very tastefully furnished. We had a wonderful time visiting Jamestown, Newport, and the surrounding areas. The owner was incredibly welcoming, helpful, and immediately responsive to the few minor issues which came up during our stay. We would highly recommend this property.

This is a very comfortable, roomy, clean place to stay if in Jamestown for more that a few days. We had most of our family dinners here because of the spaciousness. My mother was very comfortable in the roomy 2nd bedroom. She spent many hours crocheting by the big window. Can't wait to use this space again on a long visit.

QUIET GETWAY CLOSE TO BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful relaxing Labor weekend here! The house is spacious and bright with everything new and shining, even for an extend family (four adults and a baby). The owner is very friendly and knows the area very well.. It's less than 15 min away from newport and the ferry from james town to newport is very convenient with several other stops!
Highly recommend this!!
