My family (2 teen-aged sons, one grandmother, two parents) had a relaxing, fulfilling and memorable week stay. The house, simple and clean, has everything we needed and no excess. Woke daily to outdoor shower beside the black raspberry bushes, took two mile walks along the private beach that leads to Aquinnah Cliffs (arguably the most stunning beach on the East Coast). Rode bikes to Menemsha and the lighthouse as well as beaches. Up island is much quieter and sleepier than rest of island, and we loved it that way. Our sons got bus passes and went to noisier parts of the island (and to jump bridge at State Beach) for the day. Enjoyed grilling fresh catches from Menemsha and spectacular nightly sunsets. Views of beaches from upstairs rooms gorgeous. Owner was warm, friendly and accommodating with our request for odd dates. Hope very much to return. Cannot recommend it more highly!

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.
