Discover the spectacular beauty of Katama - experience the summer magic of Martha's Vineyard - find out what our other guests so greatly enjoy - treat yourself to our fabulous retreat at South Beach.
House Location: Katama is a residential area outside of the quaint and historic whaling village of Edgartown. Katama is on the south shore of the island. Our home is located on a quiet lane. It's private - a wonderful retreat.
Our home is situated a pleasant walking distance across the Katama Plains, a rare protected grass habitat, to spectacular South Beach; a beautiful stretch of soft sand, gorgeous dunes, and frothy waves. A fantastic beach for body surfing.
There are biking paths throughout the island, our home is adjacent to the bike path along Herring Creek Road, which extends from Edgartown to South Beach.
There are nature and conservation lands with miles of paths throughout the island. Enjoy walks through forested acres, along the ocean shore, through grasslands, marshland, and farmland. The natural beauty of the island is uplifting and soothing. The best of places for a magical visit!
