When you rent a vacation place on line you're never quite sure what you will get, but this home exceeded the description in every way. Close enough to enjoy all the fun in town and the beaches, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and relax.
When an owner cares about a place it shows in the little things and Don has packed a lot of quality, craftsmanship and imagination into his home. In fact he's still doing it. The master bedroom and family room, at opposite ends of the house, are HUGE. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the other beds and baths won approval from my three 29 year old girls.
Don himself is just a great guy. He checked in numerous times during the week to see if there was anything he could do for us. Any questions about the house or the island were answered with a smile and usually a joke. He couldn't have done more.
I would recommend this to anyone. My wife and I, 3 daughters and 2 sons-in law for seven days in the same house, ( 3 of which rained), and nary a cross word was spoken. Heaven.
An enjoyable bike ride to town is easy from this home in the daylight or for a little more adventure, after dark as well. Down the road from the famous South Beach with an expansive beach area that never felt crowded even during the July 4th week. Just prior to South Beach is the MV Farm Institute where you can shop for grass fed local meats. Go back to the house and cook on the Weber grille and enjoy the wonderful deck and landscapes. Eating out is a cinch in Edgartown w/many restaurants to choose from.
Thanks very much for everything Don. We'll still be thinking about this when the snow flies.
