About Paul Sylvia

Paul was born and raised, in his early childhood, in Jamestown. He later moved and has continued to return to visit family and friends. The home has been in the family for many years being handed down generation after generation. It was his goal a few years ago to remodel the 2nd floor unit and continue the tradition of returning to the home each summer with his family and just recently began to offer it available to friends and other guest.

Paul and Kimberly enjoy returning each year to the quiet historic town to visit the many fine restaurants, bakeries, shops in the area. They also enjoy hiking trails, kayaking, fishing, sailing, golf and relaxing at the local beaches. In addition to the many things to do close by, they sometimes take road trips to nearby Boston and New York City. The owners are confident you will enjoy the accommodations and the beautiful town of Jamestown.

Please feel free to contact Paul regarding any questions you may have and we look forward to you staying in our home away from home in one of the best kept secrets of New England, Jamestown, RI.

Why Paul Sylvia chose Jamestown

Our vacation rental recently had a complete remodel with all new furnishings and kitchen. This property is also in the best location close to the town center (Village) and walking distance to playground, shopping, Jamestown Ferry, and all of the restaurants in the village. A Cumberland Farms convenience store is located less than 400 feet away from the unit to pick up items during your stay. The unit is within 2-3 miles to two of the most beautiful State Parks you will find in the state of Rhode Island and possibly in New England.

What makes this apartment unique

Our central location in New England to New York City, Boston and Cape Cod is a huge plus. All three locations make a drivable day trip.

Well maintained, clean and close to all. Paul was great and responsive. Definitely recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This was a well maintained, really clean little flat on the top floor of a two family house. Paul was a great host and had everything laid out for us. He was also very responsive and prompt to any questions we had. He even texted us pictures of a deer family that passed by while we were out. The house is close to all and provides a permit to a lovely permit only beach close by. Strongly recommended!

Clean, quaint, hospitable.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed at Paul's wonderful

apartment. Paul (the owner) was very responsible and helpful. He provided all the necessary information to enjoy our stay, and was very kind. The apartment was clean when we arrived. Typically the tenants clean upon departure so there is no cleaning fee - unless you request cleaning service. The location was perfect - walking distance to the waterfront and downtown. This is a great location if you are looking to visit the area - easy drive to Newport.

One important note - the apartment is on the second floor and there are tenants on the first floor. There are quiet hours from 10pm-7am, so be mindful of this if you have young children. I would definitely stay here again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Jamestown. The house was perfect for us, and the location was fantastic; walking distance to the market and downtown area with Cumberland Farms one block down to pick up a few things if you don't want to walk to the market further down the road. The house is neat and comfortable. Even with being on a main road, you don't hear any outside noise or traffic. The owner was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with, and we thank him for opening up his home to us. Jamestown is a great little town. We were able to catch the fireworks on July 2 which had that small-town feel with kids running about wearing red, white and blue and light up batons. I was sorry I missed the local parade on the 4th! Beavertail State Park is a great place to visit and hang out. We didn't have much time to visit much of Newport since we had wedding events to attend, but were able to do the Cliff Walk one morning which was challenging but fun. With not being familiar with the area and it being a holiday weekend, we took advantage of Uber to and from Newport and found the drivers to be both friendly and informative. We plan to come back to Rhode Island (and Jamestown) again when we have more time.

Super duper!

  • 5 of 5

This is a such a nice home, well furnished and great location. The owner was exceptional, great to work with. He takes great detail to make sure things are nice. Bedrooms are spacious. Great front porch sitting area, we enjoyed that a lot in the mornings especially. Very nice convenience store within walking distance for food/snacks. Easy walk to restaurants and ocean. We would go back! It was a comfy & fun stay!

Great location, quaint!

  • 4 of 5

My 2 teenagers and I enjoyed staying here. This is a second floor apartment of a house. It has a great location near Jamestown main drag with restaraunts and Harbor. It is also a 10-20 minute drive to Newport, although main summer holidays could take longer getting over the Pell Bridge (toll $4 each way).

There is ample room for 3-4 people. Beds are comfy, a renovated bathroom and fully stocked kitchen, and is appointed with nice IKEA furnishings and New England-style deckr. There are a washing machine and dryer in a shared laundry room outside adjacent to the downstairs unit. Street noise was minimal and the neighbors are quiet. There are window AC units in the bedrooms if it gets humid.

What's missing is WiFi, and the surprise fees and end of stay self cleaning / linen laundry requirement turned out to be a hassle. Instead of enjoying a final morning breakfast, I'm writing this review while waiting for the towels and sheets to dry to avoid a hefty cleaning service fee. Be sure to allow plenty of time to get to your flight if you stay here. All in all, a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your positive review and for booking your stay at "Village 59" in Jamestown. We will be addidng WIFI for the 2017 summer rental season for our future guest. However, free WIFI is available at almost every restaurant in the area. We do not have any "surprise fees" I am not sure what you meant by this because everything is upfront. However, I am assuming it is related to booking fees or the online booking agent in which we have no control over. It may be a "hassel" to wash and dry the linens but worth saving $149 in my opinion. We also provide the washer, dryer and laundry supplies making this simple and easy for our guest. Having the option to clean yourself or hire the cleaning service will always be an option to our guests since most guest would rather save the cleaning fee at least we offer it as an option where most do not. If our guest are driving into town we also suggest bringing their own towels and sheets so they do not waste time doing laundry before they check out and this works really well allowing our guest to have that last breakfast and relaxation before checking-out. Yes, we agree with you on return home flights our guest need to book afternoon flights to ensure the unit is cleaned and allow enough time to return a rental and catch flight. I also suggest flying into PVD (TF Green) rather than Boston (Logan) if possible since it is a much closer airport. Thank you again for your stay and the positive view.

Just a short walk away you will find shopping and many varieties of restaurants. We also have a Cumberland Farms convenience store and a grocery store within a few blocks away. Convenience store with fuel less than one block, public library with playground one block away. This area is loaded with things to do in the immediate surrounding area since we are downtown. The island has amazing views from the southern end of the island where you will find one of the oldest lighthouses in the United States Beavertail Lighthouse approximately 3 miles away. Tanning on the rocks at Beavertail State Park during the summer months or just sitting there listening to the surf crash against the rocks is so relaxing for the soul. Tour the mansions of Newport or a winery tour in Middletown at Newport Vineyards, Sweetberry Farm to pick fresh fruit from the farm, walk downtown into the village to enjoy the small shops or fine restaurants. Kayak, snorkle, scuba from Fort Wetheral. Our rental is just a short drive to Boston or the Cape with this great centrally located unit. These are just a few things to do in the area. If you would like help planning your trip to Jamestown we will be glad to help!
