The space
We'd like you to feel welcome to our home. We love Jamestown and our island life and want you to love it too. Time has a way of slowing us down here. Listen to the birds, watch the deer as they graze. Do much or do nothing -just enjoy what it means to be a bridge apart and a world away!

There is a table for writing postcards, a comfortable chair and nightstand with appropriate lighting. The adjacent bath is equipped with double sink and bathtub/shower has good water pressure.

Location

Jamestown, Rhode Island, United States

We live in the North end of the island. It's residential and very quiet. We have 1 acre of protected wetland behind the house and less than 5 mins walk to the shore (Sunset Beach), 10 mins to Heads Beach. You'll be surprised places like this still exist. People are kind and friendly here. We often describe Jamestown as walking into a Norman Rockwell illustration.

In this Norman Rockwell village of Jamestown, you'll find a super-cool coffee shop, Slice of Heaven. There's a few restaurants from casual-chic to casual, a deli, Ice cream shop, The Village Hearth for home baked breads and pizza on the weekends -basically everything you need minus the strip malls and chains.

Beavertail State Park is at the southern tip of the island with expansive views of Narragansett Bay, perfect for a picnic or hike. Mackerel Cove is our public beach -there's always a Dell's truck nearby. And there are other lesser known but equally beautiful quaint visits to be had.

Venez partager notre petit coin de Paradis à un pont de Newport dans la Baie de Narragansett. Comme disent les locaux : « Un pont plus loin, un monde à part ». Profitez en effet du calme insulaire, des splendides paysages marins qu’offre l’île de Conanicut et du charmant village de Jamestown au bord de l’eau, semblant tout droit sorti d’un tableau de Norman Rockwell. Respirez les embruns des vagues océanes à Beavertail State Parc à la pointe Sud de L’île ou, plus simplement, admirez les voiliers et les couchers de soleil sur la baie à deux pas de chez nous. Newport et ses plaisirs ne sont qu’à 10 minutes de voiture, les surfeurs des plages de Narragansett à peine plus loin, mais seulement si vous le voulez. Nous nous ferons un plaisir de vous accueillir et, sur votre demande, de vous guider dans votre découverte de cette superbe région côtière de Nouvelle Angleterre, riche en histoire, sites d’exception et restaurants gourmets.

Hi, We're Paul & Cynthia and we're new to Airbnb. Recent empty-nesters, we've decided to open our home and share guest room space with visitors to this lovely island in Narragansett Bay. Paul is a Physicist and Cynthia is a retired teacher. We're a Franco-American couple and have lived in France, Long Island and now Jamestown. We are focused DIYrs, love to cook, entertain and spend free time at the beach. Paul is the sailor. Cynthia is the gardener. We're also non-smokers. We've been blessed and feel that happiness is meant to be shared. Having traveled around the world, we've learned that the very best friends in life are met in the most inauspicious circumstances. We are honest, kind, tolerant. We listen to NPR, but enjoy rap and techno too. We love old classic films. We recycle. We've been married 24 years, raised three children and moved 8 times (3 across the Atlantic). If there is anything we've learned in life, it's don't sweat the small stuff. Tomorrow's another day! (Website hidden by Airbnb) * * * * Nous sommes Paul et Cynthia, vos hôtes. D’origines parisienne (Paul) et New Yorkaise (Cynthia), nous avons vécus en France et aux Etats-Unis au cours de nos 24 années de mariage, embrassant les cultures française et américaine avec passion. Nos trois enfants, élevés de part et d’autre de l’Atlantique et maintenant devenus grands, partagent ce biculturalisme. Cynthia, la littéraire, aime la poésie et l’étude linguistique et a enseigné l’anglais et l’histoire-géo sur deux continents pendant près de 30 ans; la décoration et le jardinage sont ses activités favorites. Paul, le scientifique, chercheur en géophysique, se passionne de voile et de science-fiction. Nous sommes tous deux cinéphiles, aimons le bricolage, chiner chez les antiquaires et passer des journées au soleil au bord de l’eau ou au jardin. Nous aimons aussi les soirées dansantes ou entre amis, les inaugurations festives, les restaurants gourmets, les échanges humains, les nouvelles rencontres, être reçus et recevoir.
