LUXURY & VALUE! BIKE TO 5 BEACHES FROM THIS SPACIOUS, FULLY-EQUIPPED HOME

Gay Head - Aquinnah House Rental Photos and Description

4+ bedrooms on 3 levels, 3.5 baths plus outdoor shower. Sleeps10.

This 3000-square-foot post-and-beam home is only 8 years old. Five stunning ocean and sound beaches are within biking distance or a short car ride of this beautiful three-story house, situated on 2 acres of beetlebung groves and oak trees.

The house melds modern conveniences with traditional farmhouse style: great room with flat screen tv and fireplace; fully-equipped modern kitchen with wood-fired bread and pizza oven; sprawling master bedroom suite with cathedral ceilings and cast-iron whirlpool tub embedded in a platform of hand-picked Aquinnah sea stones. French doors off the master bedroom lead to a private balcony in the trees.

In addition to two other guest bedrooms, the house features a walk-out lower level with two semi-private sleeping areas, a separate kitchen, family room, full bath and patio. A second family, guests or help can have privacy as well as room to spread out.

For ultimate convenience, the home is equipped with wireless high-speed internet service, cable with DVR, and cell reception booster.

More Features: The fully-equipped kitchen has all the modern conveniences and was designed with function in mind. Lots of counter space for preparing quick meals or elaborate dinners. A large deck off the great room overlooks a completely private yard consisting of native island trees and features Adirondack chairs and side tables, a Weber grill and an inviting lounge chair.

Cooking spices, linens, bath & beach towels, beach chairs, and laundry detergent are just a few of the things you won't need to bring, as every detail is attended to.

You can sleep up to 10 comfortably with three queen-sized and four twin beds. In addition to four bedrooms, there is a semi-private loft overlooking one of the bedrooms with a separate entrance. Each of the three levels of the house has a full bath, plus an additional half-bath powder room on the main floor and an outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

Radiant floor heating, a wood-burning stove, and two fireplaces make for a magical winter getaway as well.

Beaches: The house is just a mile and a half from exclusive Philbin Beach, one of the few places on the east coast you can see the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean. Walk from Philbin to adjoining Moshup Beach and the world-famous Gay Head Cliffs, named one of the world's best beaches by the Travel Channel. Lobsterville and West Basin beaches are on the Vineyard Sound side of Aquinnah and offer swimming, sunsets and fabulous fishing. Red Beach offers a gentle surf for kids, a kayak launching point and tide pools galore. Access to these three beaches is included with the rental. Philbin Beach is open to Aquinnah residents and renters only, with purchase of a weekly parking permit from the town (no permit needed for bikes).

Even closer: Take a stroll to the newly relaunched Gayhead Gallery for a wine and cheese reception, or walk to the Orange Peel Bakery for coffee, baked goods or their famed Pizza Night. The Aquinnah Public Library and town playground are also a short walk from the house.

Aquinnah: For those looking to completely escape, the night sky in Aquinnah is truly amazing. Situated on the tip of the Island, the band of the Milky Way is visible on any clear night. Aquinnah, formerly known as Gay Head of Moby Dick fame, is one of the few truly rural escapes remaining on Martha's Vineyard.

A WONDERFUL FIND IN AQUINNAH!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for one week in mid-June with my family of 3 (and my mother and Aunt also joined us, so we were 5 total -- 4 adults and 1 child, age 9). I was a bit nervous about renting a house with no reviews... Upon arrival, I was elated to find this treasure of a house. The house is located just off State Road offering plenty of privacy and quiet. The house is huge and much nicer than depicted in the photos. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. In addition to being very clean, the house is thoughtfully furnished and well stocked. The beds were very comfortable with nice quality bedding and towels. The house layout is lovely for sunlight and breezes. There is a very nice gas grill on the deck that is well maintained and easy to use. We did not get to use the pizza oven, as it will make the house too hot during the summer months.

I would especially recommend this property for an extended family. The house offers bedrooms across three floors (daylight basement offers a large apartment that sleeps 4 -- with a kitchen and bathroom, the first floor offers a master bedroom suite and a sitting room that can be used as a bedroom, and the 2nd floor offers a bedroom, bathroom and loft area with a twin bed that overlooks the sitting room). The back deck overlooks the woods facing East -- lovely morning sun makes this a great place to drink coffee.

We appreciated the close proximity to Aquinnah beaches and lighthouse and Chilmark and Menemsha were just a short drive away. The house has lots of games, beach toys, bikes, umbrellas, and sand chairs -- everything you need to enjoy the area. If you plan to spend most of your time Up-Island, and you want a peaceful and quiet setting, this house will exceed your expectations.

We look forward to spending lots of time here in years to come!
