From an e-mail dated August 14, 2006"My husband and I, my sister, her husband, and their two sons, and our niece loved our week at your Edgartown home. It’s a lovely, spacious, and comfortable setting…..although we could easily have hung around more at the house, we had beaches, tennis, sunsets at Menemsha, and excellent dining (we love Jimmy Seas!) beckoning to us daily…..One of my nephews learned to ride his bike, and the other (started) to drive a car! We would certainly consider a return next year. Thank you again and best wishes for the rest of your rental season!"
We pulled into the driveway and were instantly impressed. The house, decks and yard are all beautiful.
The kids jumped out of the car and were running around to each room to check them out – they decided right then and there that this was where they wanted to come from now on – can I just say that my kids are 23, 19 and 16? They were as excited as they were when they were 13, 9 and 6!
There is so much living space! This house is a perfect house for two groups/families as the rooms are spacious and separate.
The kitchen has everything you need. The coffee table in front of the fireplace became the game table for the kids. The dining room is totally comfy and the living room is wall to wall windows and is beautiful.
The main area, the dining room and the living room each have a slider to the connected decks off the back of the house – each with relaxing seating, each just a little different.
The yard was spacious enough for the boys to pick up a little soccer game. The adirondak chairs next to the waterfall were a peaceful place to relax and have a glass of wine.
The house is centrally located between the three towns – Edgartown, Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven – all of which are about a 10 minute ride away. The bus stop is right at the corner; the 16 year olds used it to go wherever they wanted with ease. The bike trail is right there also.
The most awesome place we discovered this year was Edgartown Meat & Fish! They have THE BEST bagels and pastries, HUGE egg sandwiches, freshly made sushi, pre-marinated meats and fish – you can even watch them carve the meats behind the counter.
All in all it was a WONDERFUL vacation and we will definitely be coming back from now on.
I arrived at the house to find it spotless and stocked with all the essentials. It is more spacious than the pictures show. We spent every night outdoors, on one of the various decks or outdoor spaces. My kids used the bikes for morning rides, while I enjoyed the walk (about a mile) to Felix Neck Audobon Sanctuary, where I would walk down and visit the mom and dad and baby swan every morning.
The owner was friendly and responsive to questions and emails. We had questions about recycling and he responded quickly by both email and voicemail.
Great location...easy drive to Edgartown Centre, Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs.
Peaceful, gorgeous landscape, very spacious and comfortable. Outdoor shower was great after our many hot beach days, the house had everything we needed. Perfect location on the bus route if you are without a car. House was spotless when we got there, hope to return!
We had a perfect vacation week! The house was everything we were told it would be and more. A feeling of welcome, warmth and ease. We have family living on the Vineyard and felt we could easily have them all over the dinner the night we arrived. Large comfortable dining room plus the kitchen table. Beautiful garden and deck which provides even more space and privacy. We biked everywhere and the house is centrally located. Breezes for cross ventilation. Can't sing enough praises. Will definitely return.
This property was the perfect fit for our extended family. The seperate entry access to room over garage was a blessing for late arriving island revelers. The sunroom for morning coffee and news was open and airy. The use of space and ample beds allowed for wonderful sleeping atmosphere. The houses location, in proximity, to bus route allowed our teens ample freedom to travel with a 7- day pass. We also slept with windows opened each night and never bothered by traffic noise- there wasn't any!! The garden area is a lovely space nestled in the corner of the property with the fountain on a timer for beautiful background noise- Great for an afternoon glass of bubbly.
The owners promptness and professionalism, as well as, his selection of books and magazines are admirable. Never a dull moment.
When we pulled into the driveway, we could tell that this was going to be a wonderfully relaxing vacation!! The gardens surrounding the house will make you want to stay here forever. The gardens and decks in back of the house afford one the chance to get away from everyone else in the house.
Everything we needed was there...bicycles, a cooler, games, puzzles, internet, televisions...everything!! And while some may think that not having air conditioning is a negative, that's so far from the truth!! We opened all of the windows in the house and there was always a very pleasant breeze blowing to keep us very cool and comfortable. Upon our arrival, we found the property to be very clean and well-maintained.
The beach, grocery store, restaurants, etc., are all a short drive from the house and it is great being close, but not too close to the center of town. By the middle of the week, we had learned the shortcuts to Oaks Bluff and Vineyard Haven!!
The owner was very responsive to all questions and concerns we had prior to our arrival.
This is a fantastic property and made it a fantastic vacation. We have all agreed that we will definitely return!!
