Idyllic summer beach escape

  • 5 of 5
We had a such a great family holiday here!This is a wonderful, relaxed beach property, tucked far away from any crowds, surrounded by trees and overlooking the sea, just a short path to its own private beach with lovely golden sand and gentle waves, perfect for all ages. We loved the location best, super quiet with just birdsong and the soft sound of waves, fresh sea air and a deck with BBQ to enjoy a summer escape. The house is simple, well-appointed and comfortable, and the Owner is friendly, easy to contact and extremely helpful. Thank you!

Great stay in charming Aquinnah house!

  • 5 of 5
We got married June 14th and needed a house for the groom and groomsmen. This house was perfect with plenty of beds and rooms to accomodate a large group. There is only one indoor bathroom/shower, but there is a second shower outside, which is great for warm days. It's a short walk from a beautiful, quiet beach. The house was simple but perfect for our weekend needs. We'll be back!

Wonderful water views and beach

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this house. We thoroughly enjoyed the location on the island. The waterviews and beach are spectacular. Watching the sunset on beach was amazing (no menemsha traffic!). We kayaked several times from the beach out past the lighthouse and had a few seal sightings (rented kayaks from Menemsha company that delivered). Plenty of sleeping room in the house and with the large upstairs bedroom, a place for the kids to hang out when not at the beach. However, with this location, there is little reason to stay inside. A perfect place for a family vacation.

Another great summer

  • 5 of 5
We spent another glorious week in Aquinnah at this house. Again, house was perfectly outfitted, clean and well-maintained. The location is great for those who want to be away from things but close enough to walk to the lighthouse, bicycle to Menemsha and go to the beach without ever getting in the car. We will return again and again.

This cozy 4 bdrm. family beach home was built in 1963 and is a classic up-island Cape beach house. Walking distance to the Gay Head cliffs and Dogfish Bar make it a dream come true for the serious angler. Sleeps up to 9. The house is 150 yards from the beach on the Vineyard Sound, with a private beach shared by only a few other families. Often you'll have the beach to yourself. This is a rare opportunity for those seeking the classic up-island Vineyard experience! A paradise for kids. Cable HDTV with DVD player: Wi-Fi throughout.
