We had a wonderful vacation on Vickers Way. Your house is just perfect for us and in a great location. We'll be back!
1. Location - Terrific - close to South Beach and downtown Edgartown but just far enough away that it felt secluded and was really quiet. We rode our bikes many days.
2. Beds! - WOW!! This was a treat - nice, new comfy mattresses on all the beds. Best vacation sleep in a rental home.
3. Deck - no matter what you wanted, sun or shade, there was plenty of room on the deck to sit in either all day long. And we sat at the umbrella table for almost every meal. There were no bugs to bother us.
4. Pots, pans, utensils, etc - fully equipped - We cooked a lobster dinner for 5 and had everything we needed.
5. Washer/Dryer were relatively new. Oven looks barely used even though there are pans to cook most foods.
Loved this home and will definitely be back again. Security deposit was promptly returned and the owner was really great to deal with in all arrangements and questions.
I took my wife here for a 50th Birthday week celebration on July 13th. It could not have been any better. Upon arrival there was a Happy Birthday bottle of wine that was on the counter (thank you). The house is bigger inside than it looks in the picture. The ground floor is a large open area great for entertaining friends and family. We had a steady flow of friends and family for the entire week. We also had 7 straight sunny days and never rushed to get to South Beach which was very close. There is a great breakfast place a half mile away at Katama Airfield and a great walk to start your day. Nights were spent in Oak Bluffs and Edgartown, with a lot of great places to eat. Then late nights were about relaxing on the deck with bright stars and the best part of Katama - no mosquitos.
Carol who is the owner couldn't be any nicer to rent from. I recommend this to families or to couples who want to get away with friends or family to one of the best places in the US for a anniversary, birthday or just for a vacation away from it all.
Our family stayed at this house June '08. The location was wonderful, convenient to town & the beaches. The house itself was clean & comfortable. We look forward to another vacation here in the future!!
My family has rented this property for several years. Each year gets better; we call it our home away from home. Perfect for R&R! The home is always clean.
The location is perfect, its convenient to the beach, downtown Edgartown, shopping, recreational facilities, golfing. The layout is very open, carpeting throughout, and modern conveniences. The kitchen is well equipped with dishes, glasses, utensils, etc., two TVs, stero system, bookshelf stocked with paperbacks to read; games to play. Color scheme is blue; very soothing; very nautical.
The grounds are well kept. Love the rural area. Overall, the property is well maintained.
Carol is a great landlord.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home us.It was exactly what a family needed. It's a short distance to Katama and Edgertown and on a very quiet road. The house was as described with all modern conveniences and very clean. It has great access to the bike trails and to the beach.We can't wait to return.
We had a wonderful vacation! Your home is so comfortable-just what one would wish for when hoping for a relaxing time. The kids could play in the yard and it's location was perfect, close to everything. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
