Waterfront Home, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Queen Sleeper Sofas, 3 Baths - Sleeps 10
My wife and I are avid adventure travelers, who like to explore new countries and cultures. We have grown up and been around water all of our lives. Having settled in the upstate NY Albany area, we enjoy skiing in the winter and the local lakes in the summer, but missed the open water. Getting a place on the water in Jamestown has been wonderful! There is much to explore and do on the island, and it's only a short hop over the bridge to all the bustle and activity in Newport. Jon has retired from a long career in commercial building services and now focuses on finding, renovating and operating choice vacation rental properties in Jamestown. Jon continues to sail and race competitively when he can. Mary Ellen continues her passion of leading STRIDE Adaptive Sports, a non-profit organization she founded as an outgrowth of her teaching career, providing sports and recreational activities for youth and Wounded Warriors with disabilities. www.STRIDE.org
Jon purchased this House in 2010
Why Jon chose Jamestown Shores
We love the Jamestown/Newport area. There is great sailing, biking, diving/snorkeling, and beaches. We enjoy the activities and sights of Newport with the more relaxed atmosphere of Jamestown island.

Great house with an amazing view. The sunsets each day were spectacular out on the new deck. The location was convenient to Newport and we spent some time around Beavertail Lighthouse as well on Jamestown. Kids made s’mores over the fire pit at night and hunted for rocks to skip across the water during the day. Great relaxing vacation for all.
The views and sunsets are magical. Glad you had a great week and enjoyed your stay.
Now Our Favorite Rental!
We have rented several homes in the past, but this is now one of our favorites! It’s right on the water with gorgeous sunsets and a large deck. The house was comfortable, clean, and well equipped with everything we needed for our family. It was great to get up in the morning, hear the waves below and watch the boats go by. Sunsets were by far the best - such expansive views across the bay! Loved spending time around the fire ring in the evening just as the sun sets – magnificent! Not sure I want to recommend before we get our booking in for next year.
Thanks Charlie. When you come back next summer you can enjoy the new and enlarged deck!
Wonderful family vacation
We had a great stay at Jonathon's house. It was spacious, clean, and well appointed. My husband was initially put-off by no air conditioning but pleasantly surprised to find the cross breeze and fans kept the house cool and comfortable. No better way to spend an evening than watching sunset on the porch, the views are spectacular!
There was lots of information about the house and surrounding areas available and Jonathon was very responsive with questions we had. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone looking for a Jamestown escape!
I'm glad everyone enjoyed their stay! Being directly on the water, we enjoy great cool breezes - and no need to close the doors on the sounds and sights on the bay.
The house was clean. The view was amazing. Would love to return next year
The house was very clean, kitchen was well equipped with all you needed. The sun set were amazing. The view was beautiful. A very relaxing vacation.
Lydia- I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your stay!
Yet another great stay at Seaside
Great location directly on water and close to Newport attractions plus quiet, scenic Jamestown offerings. House was well equipped and everything was clean. Owner was immediately reachable and quickly fixed a small issue with water supply.
Hi Roger, sorry about that water mishap. You and Stephanie are welcome back anytime.
Another wonderful week at the Seaside home
We just spent another great week at this Seaside Home. This is the third time that we have rented it, and will definitely be going back. The great location, with the wonderful view of the Bay, is difficult to match. The house is very comfortable, and it is a great place to enjoy the company of friends and children. This time our kids were around, and we enjoyed everything the house had to offer. We were only a few steps away from the water and we enjoyed kayaking and swimming, and the great sunsets sitting around the fire pit. Jonathan is always helpful, and has been most welcoming. We strongly recommend this beautiful home, if you enjoy the tranquility and the beauty of being close to the Sea.
Ozzie- Glad you could make it back again this year. I'm glad your kids were able to spend some time and relax as well. Hope to see you again next year!
