Such a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
We've been coming to Martha's Vineyard for over 10 years, and this house has been our best home rental choice ever! The home is beautifully decorated, the rooms are comfortable and it has everything you need. We started our days on the front porch having coffee in the rocking chairs, and our evenings on the spacious back deck for family dinners. You can walk to town in just 10 minutes or ride a bike in 5 mins (another house amenity). Again, we've rented several homes, but this is the only home I would strongly recommend to friends and family visiting the island. It's evident that this home is special, and all renters will want to treat it as such. A big thanks to the owners of this property - we loved it!

Thanks For The Memories!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed a glorious week on Martha's Vineyard. Your home is beautiful, immaculate and very well maintained. We thought the house was cozy, very comfortable and beautifully appointed as well. We LOVED the outdoor shower and hammock. Many evenings were spent enjoying the back deck. Most mornings we enjoyed our coffee on the front porch. We loved the location, which is most important to our diverse interests. We walked everywhere with ease and comfort. You made everything very easy and enjoyable. Simply put, we had a blast and hope to return next year!!! Thanks for helping us make such cherished family memories!!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great vacation! You enjoyed all the amenities that we enjoy with the house -- the wraparound porch, the back deck, the hammock, the outdoor shower, the convenient location, the lovely, cozy decor and the blooming hydrageas that surround the house . The central air conditioning is very important when the weather is so changeable. Most nights, sleeping with the windows open and the upstairs bedroom fans is a comfortable alternative. The goal is rest, relaxation and fun with families and friends. We look forward to adding you to our return renters list!

Your Vineyard search ends here!

  • 5 of 5
I have been vacationing with my family for many years through our vacation time share and decided to try for the first time, this wonderful looking home we found featured on Homeaway. All I can say is wow! We sure lucked out big time! This home was truly our home away from home, with everything that we needed to have a terrific time on the Vineyard. We were so appreciative that the homeowners left their outdoor shed stocked with six bicycles, beach chairs, umbrellas, buggy boards, just everything we needed to make our excursions on the vineyard hassle free. The house is in immaculate condition, new, modern and beautifully decorated. We shared the house with another family and the second family room made for the perfect spot for the kids to hang out. The large deck, with ample seating, made for a wonderful evening barbeque with friends. The outdoor shower was certainly a treat and the large wrap around deck surely made our ritual morning cups of coffee very special. Can’t wait to return again.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have dreamed a better vacation home. The house is a short walk to restaurants and the harbor and has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay – spacious rooms, well-maintained, fully stocked kitchen with great appliances and a lovely décor. We will be back!!

Pure Relaxation & Heaven on Earth!

Pure Relaxation & Heaven on Earth!
  • 5 of 5
This home is the PERFECT vacation rental for a multi-generational family, groups of friends who have children, or a group of couples. I hesitate to describe it as a rental because it feels exactly like home. It's beautifully and meticulously decorated (with art that you'll want to take home)!! From the moment we approached the circular drive and entered the brightly, and freshly painted home we knew we were in for a treat. Light streams in from all directions (including from the sky light in the master bath), and the open kitchen/dining room lends itself to impromptu gatherings with drinks and snacks. The sun-filled deck is hard to resist. You'll want to lounge there with a book and cold drink at least once a day. With close proximity to the library (especially nice if you have children), Circuit Ave and the Flying Horses Merry Go Round, the beach and only 15 minutes from Edgartown and South Beach, I cannot think of a better place to choose as home base when you take a trip to Martha's Vineyard. The owners provide everything you need for the perfect beach vacay - bikes, beach chairs, beach toys... This is the only vacation that's ever caused me to shed a tear as I departed and took a last look at the lovely red door that welcomed my family every day for seven days. This home is pure relaxation and heaven on earth!

Nicer than my own home!

  • 5 of 5
As I look back over the listing for this property, it disappoints. Not because the rental is a bad one.. quite the opposite in fact. There is no way that this listing even begins to capture how amazing this rental property really is.

We spent the last week of July 2010 in this home and it is just LOVELY. The furniture is comfortable yet good quality and well maintained. The art, colors and decor of the house are designer quality yet don't feel pretentious in the least. High end appliances, two extremely large bedrooms and two average size bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms for everyone in your party and a luxurious, NOT TO BE MISSED outdoor shower are just a few of the high points of this rental.

I almost hate to even use the word rental in describing this listing. I've rented houses on VRBO in a number of locations for the last several years and this one was among the nicest I have ever seen. You will not feel like you are renting a vacation home that others have been in before you. You will feel like you are walking into a new, well loved HOME.

Location wise, I was a bit concerned. We were traveling with children (20 mos, 8, 11 and 15 years) and looking at the map, the property seemed quite far away. Trust me, it is not. We walked to the Tabernacle area in about seven minutes (leisurely walking with kids, not speed walking) and Circuit Ave is just beyond that another couple of minutes. The area felt very safe and secure- the three older kids went to the Tabernacle, Circuit Ave and the library alone with no concerns on our part.

Chris and Randy, the owners, are wonderful about keeping in touch. I spoke with them a couple of times before we left, a couple of times on our trip (they called to check in, answer questions and help us with a TV remote quandry) and even afterward. They were helpful and solicitous without being overbearing.

The drive was so long for us that I'm not sure when we might be returning to MVY but when we do, we'll be calling Chris and Randy again for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your feedback! It seems that you appreciate all the features that we appreciate, particulary the outdoor shower! We know the Vineyard was hot this season, so we're sure the central AC came in handy. Vacations are too precious (and too short) to take a chance on not having a house that meets your expectations for a summer stay. We are pleased that your expectations were exceeded.

Your feedback is more meaningful to prospective renters than anything we could write in the listing. We are so glad you had a great time and we hope that you will return!
