Before arriving, we'd convinced ourselves that our Martha's Vineyard fantasy - to be located near to up-island, at a great biking take-off point, in a clean, well-appointed and affordable place, with a private beach, and a walk-to, swimmable, beautiful pond was not achievable. But this is exactly what we found. The apartment is very clean, thoughtfully stocked, with a wonderful bed, and Alice, who is earnest in her commitment to support the best visit possible. Foodies take note: plan for a one-burner stove top, an ample convection/toaster oven, coffee maker, microwave and a grill. We enjoyed getting creative with that configuration. We biked the island, walked to Lambert's Cove Beach and to the freshwater pond. I've stayed at many 2-person apartments at the Vineyard and this was by far the best.
