Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi, I am Francesca and my husband is Petros. We are both university professors, with a 32 year old son, his wife and our two younger sons -- Alex and Angelos-- ages: 6 and 8!! We have been coming to Martha's Vineyard since we married -- 35 years ago -- as students we slept in a tent and fell in love with MV. We eventually "grew up" and had children, and vowed to spend every summer we could on the island -- if even for a short time -- for family time and reunions. As our family grew, the tent went into storage, and we then faced the dilemma of seeking out prohibitively costly MV hotels or resorts. We needed a cost effective and efficient way to insure everyone in our family would have a comfortable bed and bedding; at least a 3 bedroom home with a beautiful and right sized kitchen with all working appliances; an excellent outdoor space, so the children were free to run, without fear of oncoming traffic, and a beach area -- we could all use on a daily basis. Greg and Martha’s home on MV fulfilled all these needs and more: a huge beautiful outdoor deck to read a novel or newspaper, watch the kids, have an evening cocktail, or morning coffee; while overlooking the spacious and shaded park-like yard. The location of this home provided us with incredible privacy; while only being a short walk to the library, supermarket, and bakery in W. Tisbury and a very short ride to the “Trustee’s Beach” (provided by the owners’ permission sticker).The incredibly beautiful sand dunes and ocean breezes on this beach are incomparable on MV, it is a private and hidden treasure and even though different, as beautiful as the beaches on the Greek island where we live for 3 months out of the year. It is difficult to rent a house sight unseen and it feels “risky.” We have had problems in the past on MV with homes we rented: water in the basement, broken appliances, poor and unkept house conditions. And with a limited budget, it is not an easy task to find such a beautiful home as the Hayes home. Greg and Martha's home is in W. Tisbury, which my husband and I call, “the Upper West Side of MV.” Gay Head, Menemsha are just a short car ride away. We had the most wonderful family reunion and summer vacation here, and we will return! And my 6 year old wants to say that the “automatic” reclining chair in the Hayes’ living room is awesome! Highly recommended.

Super Comfortable House Has It All!

  • 4 of 5
This house was super comfortable to settle into for a week on the Vineyard. It was tidy and clean upon entry. Great, updated kitchen stocked with all the amenities you would expect. Great beds. Plenty of fans and ceiling fans so no sweltering nights. Great outdoor shower. Great mudroom to drop your sandals and bags after a day at the beach. Great deck - we lived out there mornings and nights. Great, private yard despite being on a major road. There were beach chairs, plenty of beach towels, a beach umbrella and even a small cooler ready for us to use. There's a convenient clothesline right off the porch. The driveway has ample space so you never have to back out onto State Road. The location was great for us (family of 5, kids ages 16-21). We brought our bikes and biked everywhere - to the beaches, to Ally's General Store, to the farmers' market, to the Yoga Barn. Everyday we'd alternate who was taking the car with all the beach supplies so the rest could bike. We even biked to Chappy one day, utilizing the awesome bike paths. I wouldn't recommend biking from this location for younger kids as State Road is narrow with virtually no shoulder and you have to bike a bit to get to the bike paths. I appreciated that the owners were up front about the naturally occurring iron in the well water. We drank from the water bubbler all week and had no problems brushing our teeth and showering. There was plenty of water for the bubbler so we never worried that we'd run out. I would not recommend using the washing machine for your personal clothes. The iron left a residue on our skin that rubbed off the inside of some of our clothes. This didn't bother us as we are accustomed to well water and knew it would come right off once we got back home to our own water - which it did. Don't let this be a deal breaker for renting this house. Who wants to do laundry while on vacation anyway? The only reason I didn't give this house 5 stars is because the living room (TV room) was a bit musty. Two of my family members have allergies to dust mites/mold and were not comfortable in that particular room. No other rooms in the house bothered them. The living room is an end room with a door that completely shuts it off from the rest of the house. In hindsight, we should have opened the door and windows in there to air it out more. We don't generally watch much TV on vacation, however, the World Cup was on and it would have been nice to watch some games on the TV in that room.

We loved it here and had a blast.

  • 5 of 5
For the price, this is a pretty sweet rental. It has a lot going for it both inside and, especially, outside. A roomy deck overlooks a large meadow in the back as well as a nice yard to the side. All are great for horsing around or chilling out. The house is also located in a great spot, with lots of markets around and a general store nearby. If you're into biking, many of the roads in the area offer breathtaking views, and the ride to Menemsha via Middle road is simply sensational (South road to Gay Head ain't bad, either). As for the home's interior, there's not too much to complain about. Our party of seven fitted comfortably within it's confines. The bedrooms were roomy and my wife, who's a chef, approved of the kitchen. We didn't use them, but there were tons of beach towels available along with a washer and dryer. The home also features a water cooler and a decent little outdoor shower. The only caveat that warrants mentioning is that the master bedroom faces State road and can be a little noisy in the morning. A small AC unit that we brought along rectified the issue, but a window fan would have worked, too.

All in all, a winner. I should mention that the owners were easy to work with, too....

All the Amenities of Home

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely, clean, well-appointed home in a wonderful location. I describe it as a "home" and not a "house," because It is evident that the owners do not treat this merely as a rental property. It is well cared for, and the extra amenities they provide are nice, such as beach towels and chairs, drinking water, a charcoal grill, iron & ironing board and shelves full of books. Despite being on a busy road, the deck is quiet and relaxing, and the yard is very private. The outdoor shower was great!

The location is very convenient, and close to the farmer's market, art show, galleries, and one of our favorite restaurants - State Road. It's also very easy to access one of the many bike or Land Bank trails. They also provide a map of the Land Bank trails, and we highly recommend that you explore these on your visit. Many of the trails open to beautiful vistas or ocean views.

We've been vacationing on the Vineyard for ten years and have stayed at some properties that were not as advertised, outdated, dirty and crawling with bugs. Greg & Martha's home lived up to its description, and we look forward to returning!

Second trip to the Hayes vineyard home!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second vineyard vacation spent at the Hayes vacation rental. We find the home is perfect for the needs of a family with young children. There's a large side and backyard, so there's plenty of room to run around outside. Our 3-year old son loved trying to catch frogs in the creek that runs through the backyard. For the parents, there's an large deck perfect for family dinners outside, reading a book during "naptime" and grilling.

As for the home itself, we find the farmhouse quite relaxing. It's clean, cool and cozy. The location is close to the West Tisbury town center, and while the road is quite busy, we still felt safe enough to walk with a stroller up to Alley's General Store to grab our morning coffee and then onto the playground or library.

The location of the home allows for a parking pass to Lambert's Cove, which is a private beach available only to residents of West Tisbury. This beach is absolutely perfect for those with toddlers or preschoolers. The location on the channel side of the vineyard provides calm waters and no current. The shallow depth would allow our son to go in and play in the water. We would have to pull him out kicking and screaming!

The owners, Martha and Greg, are great to work with. They maintain communication with us throughout the year as we prepare for our annual trip to the vineyard. Once on the island, they are always available to make sure you have everything you need at the house and to offer any suggestions you might have regarding amenities on the island.

This was our second consecutive trip to the Hayes home for our vacation and we are planning to return again next year.

Quiet, Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5
If you're looking for a quiet vacation rental away from the hustle and bussle of Edgartown and Oaks Bluffs, we would highly recommend this vacation rental.

Our family recently spent two weeks at the Hayes Vineyard home. We found the home to be quite charming. There was a large side and back yard, which was perfect for our two year old son. In addition, the spacious deck was a wonderful place to sit, read and relax when we were not at the beach.

The house itself fulfilled our needs. It remained cool indoors despite the warm temperatures during our stay. All the beds were very comfortable. The master bedroom can be a bit noisy when trucks roll by on State Road during the night, but that is few and far between. The house has well water, which contains a high iron content. The owners provide bottled drinking water, which is very nice. We would recommend that if you need to do laundry, to take it to a local laundomat rather than washing at the house as the water will likely stain your clothing. We found a laundromat located at the airport approximately five miles from the home that had drop off/pick up service, which was convenient.

The location of the home allows access to Lambert's Cove Beach, which was the real suprise of our stay. This private beach is perfect for families with small children. Located on the channel side approximately 3.5 miles from the Hayes home, the sand is the nicest we've seen in New England (we live on the North Shore in Massachusetts), the water calm, clear and refreshing. It actually reminded us of some Caribbean beaches we've visited. The parking at the beach is limited, but we never had a problem gaining access. There is a charge to use the beach ($50 for car sticker/$10 for walk-on pass), but we tell you it was money well spent. South Beach and the Trustees Beach are also both located within approximately 7 and 5 miles of the rental, respectively, and we also visited these beaches while on our stay. Both of these beaches are open water, so our son was not as "receptive" to going in as on Lambert's Cove. All the beaches have lifeguards on duty.

We found the landlords, Martha and Greg, very responsive to our needs and/or questions while visiting on the Vineyard. We'll definitely be back!
