My husband and I both work on the island. I am the art teacher for the Chilmark public school and my husband owns a window and door business in Chilmark. We raised our son and daughter on Martha's Vineyard. We live about 8 miles from the house.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

I inherited the house from my parents in 1998- they bought it in 1963. We knew that a location like that would be almost impossible to purchase today. We renovated and expanded it into a year round home because it was in such a magnificent location. My husband and I already owned a home on Martha's Vineyard so we decided to maintain this house as a vacation rental.

While the house is a well heated year round house it always feels like a beach house - the bedrooms have painted wooden floors, perfect for bare feet. You can see the waves, hear the sea and feel the ocean breeze. The large windows were designed to take advantage of the view from every location. On the first floor and on the second floor our huge windows look out toward the ocean, and across our expansive lawn toward our pond. The birding is amazing as the islands are on a migration path and our own pond attracts many species of birds. Aquinnah is so natural that birds have wild vineyards and every other kind of berry to feast upon. We try to keep binoculars and birding books and a feeder at the house. We are at the end of the little road on three acres, so there is a wonderful sense of privacy. Walking from our house to the ocean is just a wonderful experience.

RELAXED, RECHARGED AND THANKFUL FOR CAMERON HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to "The Vineyard" and I genuinely think we will be back. In large parts this will be due to where we stayed.
The house was all the usual things that you would assume; clean, well presented and fully equipped, but for us it was also located where we wanted to be on the Island and then its specific location in Aquinnah is fantastic. The pictures do a good job of representing the house but the personal space and privacy that you are afforded because of the lay of the land and rambling property lines is something special. You can barely see the edge of another 1 or 2 properties, but up at the house, you really feel like the hillside could be your own, with nothing between you and the 180 degree view of the ocean except grass, trees and dunes.
Kids have room to play in the garden, there is room to grill and relax on the deck and watch the sun go down! In fact, you get sunrise and sunset views from this house.
The expansive windows and corner window details afford magnificent views and it means there is not a bad room in the house.TV was flatscreen and WiFi stayed up for the duration of our stay and was available everywhere.
The walk to the beach is literally just down the road and when we went we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
Even out of season there were plenty of eating choices to suit all wallets and they were a drive away and we just mixed lunches and dinners and eating at home to how our day was panning out.
We generally like to try new things and locations but we both agree that we would come back to "The Vineyard", back to Aquinnah and back to this house.
In the run up to our arrival Kathleen helped with some dates we wanted to shuffle and ferry details etc.
I would definitely recommend this property to friends.

What a grand house at a perfect location! From the outside shower to the spectacular sunsets from every window, the absolute comfort of house with a sleeping den upstairs and comfortable beds on the first level, a great stocked kitchen and lovely grounds with a pond, this spot has it all. It's just a skip to the beach and to the Aquinnah lighthouse. The owner was very helpful and I would highly recommende this property. A wonderful week was had by all (including the dog)!!!!!

My wife and I have rented this wonderful house for several years and each time is better than the last. It is always clean and well maintained, with spectacular views of Noman's Land from the front deck and even more spectacular views of the sunset from the master bedroom. Kathleen is an absolutely terrific landlady and we can recommend this house without reservation. Five stars.

OUR FAVORITE SPOT

  • 5 of 5
This a wonderful house in a spectacular setting. My wife and I have been enjoying it for several years in the autumn and each time seems better than the last. It is always clean and well maintained. The view of the sunset from the master bedroom must be seen to be believed. We are already counting the weeks until we can return next year. Kathleen is an absolutely terrific landlady. Highly recommended.

SANCTUARY BY THE SEA

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I come to this house every year, sometimes twice. It is truly a sanctuary. Surrounded by 3 rolling acres and overlooking the majestic sea, this house feels like our home away from home. It has spectacular views, seclusion and privacy, a pastoral setting with many birds and wildlife and an ideal location with an easy 5 min walk to one of the islands most beautiful beaches. We enjoy preparing meals while looking out at the sea. The house is always immaculate as well as spacious and comfortable with wonderful artisan details. Being there feels almost like going back in time to Old New England. Time spent at Kathleen's house has given us many cherished memories. And our dogs love it, too! Can't wait to get there again in a few weeks!!

Peace and tranquility with a background of wonderful songbirds and a view that can't be justified with words- what a wonderful retreat. A very comfortable, relaxing house with any amenities you would need. It's homeiness allows you to relax and just soak in the sights and sounds. I love the island and the off seasons are more enticing to me- we found plenty to do - many hikes and beach walks. The seclusion of the home yet easy access to those activites we were interested in was just the respite we needed.
