I had the opportunity to stay in this lovely home last summer for a week in early August. The house is very clean, spacious, and comfortable, with provision for every necessity--even an outdoor shower and patio dining set. The large back yard includes a spectactular garden and artistic grassy areas; you can tell the owner has a degree in landscape architecture. It is easy to while away a few hours in the evening sitting on the patio with a glass of wine watching the hummingbirds enjoy the flowers. In more energetic moments, we biked into town for ice cream and out to the beaches--which are both an easy, flat ride away. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood, but close to restaurants, shopping, and all types of summer activities. The owner is also a great resource; as Vineyard resident for over 40 years, there are few residents, activity opportunities, or amenities on the island that are unknown to her.
