This was the third time at the Vineyard and the first at this house. I won't have to look any further on my next visits. The house is quiet and secluded at the end of a dirt road yet accessable to the bus system for those without a car. We love to drive everywhere and this was a great home base to visit the beaches and lighthouses. So close to Edgartown center you can walk there as well as to the Stop and Shop supermarket. The owners are very nice and easy to communicate with and the property was very clean. This house made the island adventure very affordable for my family who would much rather spend money on adventure rather than sitting in a five-star resort and not seeing the sights. The house is modest in size but ample for family of four with a full kitchen and laundry facilities which is import so you don't have to overpack. Be sure to stop at Edgartown Pizza and make sure you check out the Black Dog locations for their bakery as well as their clothing line (outlet in Oak Bluffs next to their regular store). Flying Horses Carosel in Oak Bluffs is a must for kids. The beaches we liked most were State Beach in Oak Bluffs and East Beach on Chappiquiddick. If you are there in the summer, you must catch a performance by the Vineyard Sound, a college a cappella group that performs five times a week for donations.
