Best that MV has to offer!
Simply put – this is the best deal on MV, period.
Each summer, several friends and I head to MV for the week of the Monster Shark Tournament. Last summer, we made one of our best decisions yet by spending the week at John’s house.
There are obviously bigger houses on the island, and there are obviously houses closer to town…but if you’re looking for the overall best vacation experience, then you shouldn’t even consider renting another house.
The house itself is a good size and has everything you’d ever need. The four distinct bedrooms are a HUGE plus and the backyard is the ultimate ‘game changer’. MV can obviously get expensive if you go out for lunch and dinner every single day for a week straight, but the backyard affords you the opportunity to grill and relax without spending a million dollars. The backyard is also great because it is extremely private, and it is large enough to play bags, toss the football, etc. We refuse to look at renting another house strictly because of the backyard.
As for the distance from town, a car isn’t a necessity by any means – we walked into town each night and enjoyed doing so (10 minute walk) – but it’s definitely nice to have (especially since you’ll have access to your own driveway).
The only time we really used the car was to grab groceries or to go to South Beach in Edgartown. Aside from that, we walked everywhere and cabbed it if we were too tired to walk back.
As for John, he is by far the easiest and the best landlord I’ve ever worked with. He is more than willing to do anything to make your trip a success. Consequently, I’d recommend staying here 150% of the time.
