The villa is in a nice location- a little off the beaten path so it is quiet. The view from inside as well as from the front deck is lovely. The private beach is a short walk from the villa - it is great for fishing, kayaking, swimming. It is pond swimming so no waves and not a huge sandy area. We really enjoyed both front and back decks.
This property could really benefit from an update. The kitchen and bathrooms are functional but not that attractive. A lot of the windows do not work very well - hard to open and close them. The only window treatments are roller blinds in the bedrooms and wooden blinds in the living/dining area. The third bedroom is a loft which makes it difficult for the occupants to sleep if others are downstairs in the kitchen/living area.
All in all we enjoyed our stay. Restaurants, beaches, shopping, kayaking and biking were all great. We also found the people on Martha's Vineyard to be really nice and helpful as was the owner. She was accessible and answered all our questions promptly.
