Katama House Rental Photos and Description
5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 10 with beautiful views
Relax and enjoy this spacious and well maintained family home while over looking nearly 300 acres of conservation land out to South Beach and the Atlantic. This 3,500 square foot house was architecturally designed for family living - It offers multiple living areas including a 24 X 30 cathedral ceiling family room, fireplaced lving room, open kitchen and dining area, 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths. Air conditioning in the main living area. While sitting on the front deck one can watch the fishing boats in the distance, the activities of a beautiful seaside farm and the comings and goings of small single engine airplanes in the distant grass runways of the Historic Katama Airpark. This unique private neighborhood is considered by many to be the “hidden gem” of Katama; a dead-end dirt road with only five homes with unobstructed views assuring privacy and relaxation. A great place for families with children to frolic and play without concerns for traffic or street noise at nap time just the gentle breezes and sounds of distant waves. Three private decks totaling nearly 1,800 square feet assure comfortable outdoor living. In addition there is a generous double outdoor shower to refresh after a day at the beach or anytime.

There are soaring cathedral ceilings throughout the home as well as large windows for plenty of natural light.
Great Private Location Near Town and South Beach: We are just off the bike path to town and South Beach. Main Street Edgartown is just two miles away for world class shopping and dining on historic Edgartown Harbor. The popular South Beach is in view and less than a mile away.

We are a family of five with two teenage daughters and a seven year old son. My wife and I bought the home before we had children and have loved our time on the island watching our family grow. We enjoy everything Katama has to offer; close proximity to town, relaxation, clamming, boating, biking, the beach and fishing.
Seth purchased this house in 1996
Why Seth chose Katama
This property has everything we wanted; privacy, wide open unobstructed views, large flat lot, enough room for family and guests. It is a large home with 5 bedrooms and 4 full baths with multiple living areas for everyone to spread out. In addition the location is superb, an easy bike ride to beach or town.
What makes this house unique
Not many homes in Katama have multiple living areas and ours has two large separate family rooms. In addition The neighborhood is considered by many to be the 'secret gem' of Katama. It is located in the heart of Katama, has wide open unobstructed pastoral and ocean views. It is a small private neighborhood with only five homes on a well maintained dead-end dirt road with easy access to the bike path. With all the hustle and bustle in town and around the island during the summer it is nice to come back to the peace and serenity of the neighborhood.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hello Seth, I wanted to thank you and Mei again for the great vacation and time we enjoyed at your vacation home. Our entire family is still talking and reminiscing about the house and island. Your home was perfect for us and all of the family sharing, celebrations, and reunions we were able to enjoy. I hope the home was as you expected it after your inspection. We will be glad to be a reference for your home if you would want us to. Thanks again. Bill
