Overview

Edgartown House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 4 baths, sleeps 10

Great home for entertaining friends and family. Private 4+ acre retreat, secluded waterfront property on Sengekontacket Pond with a private dock and mooring - perfect for swimming, fishing, kayaking, waterboarding or small powerboats. Your own private beach and sitting area next to your own 125 foot dock let's you enjoy the wonderful waterfowl and serenity of the water. You are right across from "big bridge", and an easy kayak to State Beach. The morning sun rises over spectacular Nantucket Sound and Sengy to begin your day.

Explore your private boardwalk and island on a beautiful saltwater pond of 745 acres (2 1/2 miles in length) with connections to Nantucket Sound. From a large patio (great for entertaining) you look down over an expansive lawn to the boardwalk and lawn chairs. You can eat outside on the open deck or in a large screened-in porch overlooking the water. Also, there is a picnic table on your island where you can enjoy a picnic and water activities. An expansive outside shower is off the porch.

The house is newly renovated by one of the Island's top architects. The interior is bright and beautifully furnished with a tasteful, beachy feel. Design of this fully air conditioned 3,500sq ft home takes full advantage of sparkling water views from almost every window.

A great room overlooks the patio with a wall of windows and a gas fireplace for chilly nights. An entertainment area provides a large screen, high definition TV and wireless Internet, which can be reached throughout the house. The modern gourmet eat-in kitchen has granite counters, double ovens, 5 burner cook top and is fully equipped for the discerning chef. Williams Sonoma dishes and glassware, and All-Clad pots and pans are at your finger tips in this well-laid-out kitchen.

On the deck, a new Weber stainless steel Genesis gas grill makes barbequeing a snap. A lovely bar area, located in the center of the open first floor, has a side-by-side red / white wine refrigerator, drink glassware and lovely dishes for serving hors d'oeuvres. In addition, the first floor has a formal dining room for 10, and separate den with a queen sofa bed, flat screen TV and games. A full bath with a large shower and a large airy entryway completes the first floor.

Three en suite bedrooms (one king and two queens) provide great privacy for three couples, one of which is a large master bedroom with a seating area and a large private balcony. An additional bedroom has twin beds and is decorated for the little pirates in your family.

Adjacent to the Martha's Vineyard Rod and Gun Club, and within an easy walk to the Felix Neck Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary and hiking trails. Near bike paths connecting Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, and Vineyard Haven town centers.

Top quality linens and towels are provided. Beach towels, cooler, toys, umbrella and 7 beach chairs are provided.

What makes this house unique

We choose this property because of the lovely location. To have 4.5 acres on the water is very hard to come by on Martha's Vineyard, and the added seclusion is a great benefit. Docks are no longer allowed on the pond, thus we were thrilled that the property came with an excellent dock.

The house is very inviting and provides an open light feel, which is great for entertaining. Our friends with small children love the large lawn for games.

Even though the house is located next to the 90 year old Edgartown Rod and Gun Club we have never had a renter complain. The shooting is very limited and the noise does not bother anyone. People are so taken by being near the water, hiking trails and bike paths that they come back year after year. Also, it does not take you long to drive into the 3 towns where you can do all your shopping - this is a big advantage vs. being out in Chilmark.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An amazing vacation house and what can I say about the location. Beautiful views, a swinging hammock, great yard and deck. We had an amazing time from running around outside with the kids, to kayaking or just sitting and admiring the view.

Beautiful setting for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We will be returning to the Johnson's home for the seventh year in 2015. It has been a wonderful spot for our family. The grandchildren love the pond. Now they are all old enough for kayaks and paddle boards which we keep down by the dock and can take across the pond to State Beach. The back yard is perfect for whiffle ball, croquet, or a board game on the deck. There's something for everyone to do on the property, but you can also quickly get on the bike path for a ride into Edgartown or Oak Bluffs.

Every year we arrive to find significant new updates to the house. It is always well maintained and comfortably furnished. Cindy and Ken have been great owners, graciously responding to any concern and asking for input as to what we think would make their home better.

We are very happy to keep coming back.

Spacious house, gourmet kitchen, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this great house for 3 years. The large, gourmet kitchen is great for entertaining and is very well equipped. The property and views overlook Sengikontacket Pond - beautiful and private. We love that there are 2 ensuite bathrooms, making it perfect for renting with friends. The house is very clean, well maintained and well furnished. I highly recommend this house for a great Vineyard vacation.

The Edgartown area, provides easy access to bay and ocean beaches - the house is near Edgartown, a classic whaling town, and the Victorian town of Oak Bluffs. It is an easy drive out to the end of the the island and the other towns. Towns feature special events, farmers markets, artist studios, sailing trips, boating charters, etc. The Island has great dedicated bike paths that are excellent for children. The beaches are some of the best in the world with big waves at South Beach and more gentle waves for little people at State Beach. The water is warmer than Cape Cod and Long Island as the island is closer to the Gulf Stream.

There are many activites for children at Felix Neck, which is a large nature preserve very close to our house. Also the FARM Institute at Katama Farms in Edgartown is another great stop for the little ones. An educational farm that teaches children and adults about sustainable agriculture, the FARM regularly hosts morning chores, and has summer camp programs for all ages.

There are many top restaurants in the immediate vicinity - both beachy, formal and family friendly.

Convenient to rent bikes, paddle boards, kayaks and baby equipment - all will be delivered to the house.

Other Activities: boating, fishing, claming
