Lovely Home in a Peaceful Setting

After spending a lively and chaotic week with extended family in Vineyard Haven, we were looking forward to a more peaceful week in Aquinnah with our immediate family. All of our expectations were fulfilled. The house was exactly as advertised, charming with a well-stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. We easily walked to Lobsterville Beach and biked to Philbin and Menemsha. We definitely plan to return.

A wonderful summer retreat

This is a very comfortable, well-maintained, spotless, spacious house with an extremely well-equipped kitchen and wonderful art in a very quiet setting. Our only regret was that we booked it for only one week.

A Perfect Family Getaway

When my fiance and I were planning our wedding, we wanted to have something small, intimate and special. We chose Martha's Vineyard, a place we had made many fond memories. It was important to bring our families together somewhere that was beautiful and comfortable, so this Aquinnah home was perfect. Nestled in the woods across from a peaceful little pond, it was the ideal way to introduce our families to each other and to the Island. We were even able to rent the next house up the road so that everyone was close by. It was the perfect setting! The house is light filled, spacious, and tastefully decorated. The beds and linens are comfortable and the kitchen equipped with everything you could think of for making a gourmet meal. Lobsterville Beach is a quick walk, and an even quicker bike ride, down the road. Leah, the owner, is an absolute pleasure and really went above and beyond in creating a gorgeous home. She even helped us by suggesting the perfect location for our lobster bake rehearsal dinner, the beach at West Basin. We enjoyed with the most amazing sunset views and once the sun went down, it was only a five minute car ride back to the house. We loved our time at the house so much we are making this our annual rental on MV! I highly recommend this home and think you will love it too!

Wonderful home

Such a beautiful home! After many visits to the Vineyard staying in the Katama area, we decided to try Aquinnah for a change of pace. We're so happy we did. We found plenty to see and do 'up island', found the beaches fantastic, but the home we stayed in was the icing on the cake. The bedrooms were luxurious and comfortable, all ammenities were well though out, and the owner was a pleasure to work with. We felt as though we were staying in a top-notch resort with all the comforts of home - and more! We didn't want our week to end. We will definitely stay here again.

We LOVE this house!

This beautiful home not only accommodated my entire family of 4, but also my sister-in-law's family of 4. We have stayed here the past two summers and we all wish we could extend our stay longer than a week. Every need is taken care of, we really feel like we are guests in someone's fabulous home. The sheets are soft, the rooms are comfortable, the kitchen is stocked, the shampoos and soaps are nice, the deck is lovely, the pond is peaceful, and most importantly- it is TOTALLY quiet and secluded. The beaches are very close and lovely. There is a book full of information about great things to do on the island, including sailing on a beautiful wooden sail boat! Fun was had by all. I very highly recommend this house.
