Overview

West Tisbury House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, private outdoor shower, sleeps 8

Only a 5-minute walk to the nicest family beach on Martha's Vineyard! This quintessential Vineyard Cape is on a quiet country lane, set back from the road and is surrounded by a private acre of beech trees. Downstairs is a front-to-back fireplaced livingroom with fireplace (New, comfy livingroom furniture from Boston Interiors for Summer 2013), large kitchen with Hubbardton Forge lighting, eating area with room for 10, and a full bath. The house has custom Vermont and Maine handmade beds, Crate and Barrel kitchen set, hardwood floors, Claire Murray hand-hooked area rugs, and stainless steel kitchen appliances. French glass doors lead to decks off the livingroom and kitchen, with an outdoor dining area.

Upstairs are four bedrooms: two with queen-sized beds, one with a bunkbed and a trundle, and one with a trundle that opens to a king size bed or two twins. There is a bathtub in the upstairs bath, and a shower in the first floor bath plus a private outdoor shower.

Enjoy big breakfasts? The kitchen is well equipped with a waffle maker, electric griddle, blender, coffee grinder and Cuisinart coffee brewer. In addition, there is a lobster pot, bowls and platters, salad spinner, and a full set of pots and pans - all the comforts of home.

The house is uniquely situated as it is walking distance to three swimming areas. Its a 5-minute walk to the Lambert's Cove Beach parking lot, a resident's only private beach with miles of untouched sand dunes. This beach has fine sand and silver dollar shells. Because it is open to West Tisbury residents and tenants only, it is never crowded. Sunsets on this beach are the best on the island. Your rental includes two family beach passes. Walk to the beach, or drop off the kids, cooler and chairs, and leave the car at the house!

Enjoy swimming in crystal clear ponds? Manaquayak Preserve and Seth's Pond are also less than 10 minutes' walk from the house.

Manaquayak Preserve is one of the newest Martha's Vineyard Land Bank properties, It is a short 5-minute walk from the house. This 12-acre property contains a pristine, glacier-formed kettle pond originally called Ice House Pond. The Land Bank purchased the property in November 2004 through the use of a straw buyer in order to mask the Land Bank's interest from multiple sellers who, the Land Bank said, would likely not have sold to the public agency. From 2004 to Spring 2008, the property was closed to the public while access was being litigated in court. The property finally opened to the public in Summer 2008, but has only 4 parking spaces to limit its use.

Stroll through the Gingerbread Cottages: The grounds of the Martha's Vineyard Campmeeting Association (MVCMA), located in Oak Bluffs just behind the retail district, grew out of the religious 'campmeeting' movement of the 19th century. The campgrounds grew to become one of the largest and best-known campmeeting sites in the country. Visitors to the Cottage Museum can view the interior of a Campground cottage, complete with period furnishings. Also on display are vintage photographs and other documents relating to the history of the Campground.

About Amy & David

David and Amy live in Beverly, MA and fell in love with Martha's Vineyard and Lambert's Cove Beach many years ago during a weekend visit. In their spare time they enjoy sailing and kayaking.

Amy & David purchased this house in 2005

Why Amy & David chose West Tisbury

We discovered Lambert's Cove Beach while visiting some friends on the island. It was love at first sight when we climbed to the top of the sand dune and took in the magnificent view of the cliffs and ocean. We have traveled extensively in many countries, but Lambert's Cove Beach remains one of our favorite places to relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amy,



We had a wonderful time (week of 7/8/11) and the house worked out great for our group of friends and family.



The weather cooperated and we only encountered one night that was on the border of being a bit warm for people accustomed to having AC, but we really didn't miss it. We used the deck constantly for our large group and we were surprised by virtually no bugs and zero mosquitos. Having the washer/dryer was a blessing and we certainly appreciated this as our group used it pretty much daily.



Thanks for the heads up on the fresh water pond down the street, we definitely wouldn't have found that without the directions. It was a nice change from the beach, although the keepers at the pond are a bit over serious about the routine and rules.



Martha's Vineyard really proved to be much more than we were expecting. Beyond the nice tourist towns and the great beaches, it surprised us that much of the island was lush, rural, and had almost a Cotswold England feel to it. We found a lot of great hikes for the mornings and enjoyed getting around all over.



Again, we had a great time and certainly appreciate the use of your home!

Great location!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our two week stay at the house! It was so convenient to Ice House and Seth's Ponds and Lambert's Cove. We got great use out of the Ping Pong table in the basement and the bikes were perfect for our trips into town. Thank you for sharing your house with us!!

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent a week at this charming Cape Cod style home in Lamberts Cove.

This is a charming place which is a few miles outside of town with plenty of privacy but close enough to shopping and conveniences.

The home is clean and recently modernized with many conveniences, located in a quiet wooded area close to a nice restricted access beach.

The home is quite roomy and can easily accommodate a family or group.

Staying there was a wonderful respite from our busy lives. We greatly enjoyed our Vineyard experience and would highly recommend these accommodations!

Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in your beautiful home! Thank you for sharing your house with us, we were very comfortable there. The best part is the location, it was so nice to be able to walk to the beach. We found ourselves returning for a sunset walk each day. We also liked the large kitchen and dining area. All in all, a wonderful vacation.

Cozy and comfortable in off season

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful few winter days in this perfect house! The kitchen is large and open to the dining area, so we could all cook and eat together comfortably. The kitchen is fully equipped and the color scheme is restful and soothing throughout the house. The bedrooms are well appointed and accommodate various ages and sleeping groups, singles, couples, and children. We loved having a fire in the living room, which fit us all happily on nice couches and chairs.

There are many walks in the neighborhood, some in woodsy and some in beachy areas. The nearby town, where we went shopping, was friendly and cute. We found exactly what we needed. The movies and games in the house’s collection were great, with plenty of variety, and we discovered the ping- pong table when washing the nice linens in the handy and clean basement. The two bathrooms are clean, functional and convenient.

I would highly recommend this house. It if it this nice off-season, I can only imagine how great it is as a summer get-away.

We had a wonderful time at Lambert's Cove. Our friends came in from Florida and the four of us stayed a long weekend--the house was beautiful and well equiped with everything we needed including pots and pans, games, and great island information. From the moment we walked in we felt at home. In addition, the house was perfectly located so that we were central to everywhere we wanted to be on the island. We had a fantastic time - even when it rained we had a great time relaxing in front of the fireplace. We look forward to returning on a regular basis! Thank you!

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! After visiting Martha's Vineyard for 12 years we have finally found a great home central to everything. Lambert's Cove Beach, Uncle Seth's Pond, and Icehouse Pond are all a short walk away. Lambert's Cove Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. We started each day with a walk or jog along the beach. Touching the rock at the end was the big prize. :) After a long day at the beach, a dip in one of the ponds was exactly what we needed. Long Point Reservation was a beautiful spot with hiking, huge ocean waves, and yet another pond. The Farmer's Market and a yummy Scottish Bakery are a very short distance away. We loved every minute of our stay at the Dines' Lambert's Cove Cape. Already counting down the days until next year!!!
