There are flat rocks for sunbathing or fishing, good snorkeling and a very nice cove, Hull Cove, with a beach just five minutes walking to the left along the water's edge. The town beach is approximately 10 minutes by car. The town center of Jamestown is a few minutes further, with cafes, shops and a marina.

House features oak and cherry floors and a traditional beach cottage character. Historical Information: This neighborhood was originally developed for and by fishing enthusiasts prior to the 1950's. Many of the houses subsequently incorporated the original fishing houses into their more modern renovation. This house was renovated in the 1950's by the then retiring owner. He and his wife built a large kitchen, a bath and two bedrooms onto the original fishing structure, and added central heating, making it one of the first year-round houses in the neighborhood. One can identify the original structure by the flooring: cherry wood was used to floor the original, with pine paneling on the walls. The remainder of the house was floored with oak, but again using pine paneling on the walls. While there has been some thoughtful updating, the feeling of the cottage is very true to its time, and so has a very strong feeling of nostalgia! If you enjoy excitement and action, but would like a quiet retreat at the end of the day, or prefer being away from the excitement all day long, this is the place for you. This location is exceptional for its proximity to the water and its convenient access to cultural and tourist attractions in downtown Jamestown, and Newport, while keeping the hubbub at arm's length. Enjoy gorgeous views and private access to the ocean with a location and accommodations that pays homage to a simpler time. Other Activities: bird watching, beach combing, kayaking, biking, golf, people watching, boat watching, This house is available Saturday to Saturday except by special arrangement Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 205009753 00More

About the neighborhood
Flat shale rocks at the base of our neighborhood stairs are great for sunbathing, launching a kayak and fishing. Or launch yourself for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, or, for the stout of heart, surfing across our cove at Short Point. Heading out the front door in the opposite direction, bike the island, walk to Beavertail lighthouse, or just watch the birds, of which there is an abundance. Beachcomb Hull Cove, or head south toward Beavertail along the water's edge. This walk becomes quite dramatic and will require retracing your steps before long. historical information: This neighborhood was originally developed for and by fishing enthusiasts prior to the 1950's. Many of the houses subsequently incorporated the original fishing houses into their more modern renovation. This ...
