I grew up in Braintree, MA (just south of Boston). For the first 30 years of my life I had never been to the Vineyard.

When we turned 30, my twin sister and I decided to visit this lovely island for the first time. The moment I stepped off the ferry I was in love. Every winter I booked my vacation for the next summer and would do the count down until I could return.

While I still live in Braintree, I try and spend as much time here as possible. No matter what the season, I love coming down!

Ellen Duncan purchased this house in 2005

In 2005 I purchased this home. For me the location was ideal, it is on the bike bath, 1.5 miles to the beach and to the edge of the water in downtown Edgartown (Atlantic Fish in Edgartown Harbor). It also happened to be very close to one of my FAVORITE Restuarants, The Square Rigger (Lobster stuffed with Lobster...YUM!).

If I am not in the mood to bike/walk, I can always catch the bus as the house is on the bus route too.

When I purchased it was circa 1970 so I did some major renovations: new kitchen, 2 new bathrooms, new mudroom, new deck.

This house also had a fireplace! Yeah, what a great way to enjoy the island in the winter.

An easy walk to town

The location can't be beat, especially at the price. Very easy walk to town without the "intown" price. Everything was new and we had everything we needed for a very comfortable vacation. I can't wait for this summer!

This house was everything we anticipated and more. The location was perfect, a quiet spot away from town but within reasonable walking distance. Stop an Shop is close and the house is located on bus line #1. The home was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very friendly and communication was prompt and easy. This is a great value!
Owner's Response: I am glad you had a good time, Thanks Kelly!

Last week on the vineyard

What a wonderful time we had staying at your lovely home last week. The pictures don't do it justice. There was plenty of room for my extended family of eight. We had plenty of privacy and the kids had a ball playing in the backyard. It was so convenient to everything.....walking or biking. The bike trail was at the end of the driveway. I especially liked the bike ride to Morning Glory Farm for their homemade muffins. Thanks Ellen for the use of your home, we would love to come back again. Sue

Great House!

Just got back from my two week vacation and this house is awesome! Well equipped and maintained beautifully. We didn't have to bring anything except our clothes. There are beach chairs, boogie boards, a cooler, grill, beach umbrellas, etc... I will definitely stay here again next year. The owner was a pleasure to talk to and very reasonable. Can't wait until next year when we do it all over again!

We loved this place. It is very clean, comfortable, and cozy. Its in a great location on the bike path. The kids liked having a tv in their own bedrooms. The beds are comfortable, and the owner is very friendly.

Notes:
No smoking inside the house. Smoking permitted on deck. Sheets & towels can be made available. Tenant is responsible for cleaning sheets and towels at end of rental. Sheets should be folded and left on bed. Towels should be folded and left in the linen closet. After a warm winter I am anticipating a HOT Summer for 2012. I have 3 new air conditioners for the bedrooms so you will sleep comfortably should we have a scorcher. Electricity is exceptionally expensive on the Vineyard, please shutoff when you head out for the day or when not needed. Each room does have a celing fan as well.
