Yordanka and Benjamin met on Block Island while Yordanka worked a summer job at the BIG and Ben worked as a general contractor building residential homes.

Shortly after purchasing the home they moved in the pursuit of career opportunities presented to Yordanka after she graduated Yale SOM.

They both enjoy sharing their home and they use VRBO and AirBnB to rent homes from others when traveling. Meeting and sharing experiences with interesting people is something that they enjoy.

Sadly they are no longer able to manage their rental property on their own.

They hired Offshore Property to manage The Martin Mere house.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Yordanka and Benjamin happily chose to purchase this wonderful home from Benjamin's grandmother in 2012. They both love the island very much and are happy to be able to share its uniqueness with others. Benjamin has been a life long resident of Block Island and his family tree can be traced back to the founders of Block Island. Who's names can be found on settler's rock.

By purchasing the property the family was able to maintain ownership of a larger section of family owned properties.

Benjamin And Yordanka are happy to share their home with people who share their love for animals.

It pleases them to be able to share their home with people. Which makes the property a place that people can count on to bring their families back to year after year.

The property is surrounded by ponds, nature conservancy owned land, and it is situated between family owned property.

This makes the property unique because Benjamin's grandmother and parents are both quiet and very unlikely to complain about the occasional loud noises produced by good natured fun coming from the rental home.

There is also a boat and life preservers on the property.

Excellent House for Wedding Stay on Block Island!!

  • 5 of 5
Great Place!!! They owners were very open and worked with us to rent this house on the weekend!! We loved the location - on the west side of Block Island - very quite and nice neighborhood with horse farms in the area around the house - the house has two ponds and a big yard - Nice Long Driveway - off the main road. We loved the location - close to the Dori Cove Beach - horseback riding (on Dori Cove Beach), beautiful sunsets off the deck and in the yard - this was a very enjoyable stay for us - we had a great Weekend at Block Island made it a mini vacation with a family Wedding at the Altantic Inn. The house is nicely decorated inside - it was no big deal to air out the house when we first arrived - We would definitely stay there again!!

A Positive Experience All Around!

  • 5 of 5
My family ( 8 people, plus a dog) stayed here early in the summer season. The house was clean, spacious, comfortable, and had every amenity you could think of. The location was ideal for those seeking a peaceful getaway. The large, private yard overlooks a beautiful pond with the beach just a short walk away. The owners were very accommodating, letting my family stay for a few extra hours beyond the check-out time. Everyone had a great time, and we would definitely considering returning in the future! Thanks for a great vacation experience!

Only bad part was....leaving!! Awesome home and vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a week at this most wonderful home. The first impression we had was that it was so private and well maintained. The pond became a focal point for our family. We had morning tea/coffee there on the dock and watched the sunrise reflections. We also sat there and fished and then when sunset came, we watched the colors dance in the water. The home was spacious and beautiful. We had 7 adults and we all had a place to escape to if needed. The owner lives nearby which makes it great if you have a question. The location was perfect. A short walk to Dorries Cove beach and you can sit there and watch the sunset while leaning against driftwood. We have nothing negative to say about our stay. We fell in love with Block Island and also this home. Thank you so much to the owner and for providing so many extras that we have never had at other vacation rentals. So many games (outdoor and in) and the hammocks under the trees were perfect during the heatwave.The house had many fans to cool us and also the nearby ocean breezes. We would love to come back to this house. Just totally perfect. We miss it already. We recommend it 100%.

Owner's Response: I am always happy to hear when people enjoy their stay at my rental home. I make improvements and add amenities every winter while the house in not rented. I am always open to suggestions on how to enhance the property so that people can really relax and have the get a way they deserve. Leave all your electronic gadgets at home, if possible, and take time to smell the roses. Life is too short to be a slave to the rat race. These guests had the right idea and were a pleasure to rent to. They are welcome back any time!

We stayed here with a few friends for Fathers Day weekend. We ony had two nites but loved it here. the house ison a private road and has a beautiful deck, very peaceful. The hammocks were wonderful and so is the swing on the deck. Just what we were hoping for. The house had plenty of room, Very nice living room. It is very breezy which is perfect! !Close to new harbor. Hope to come back and stay longer. Although we did not have a chance to meet the owners, they could not be more helpful.

Not too bad...

  • 4 of 5
This was our first time staying on Block Island so I don't have much to compare this too but overall it was a nice place to stay. Our biggest complaint was being overwhelmed with the smell of febreeze and air freshener when we got to this house. It was overwhelming, and with the rainy weather, it took a few days to air out the master bedroom. The owner is more than accomodating and it should be noted that he lives in a house on the same property so its not totally private. The property is very spacious and the hammocks are a delight. We didn't spend any time on the fishing dock as there was just too much goose poop. I personally wouldn't stay here again but is good for large families looking for a spacious place to relax that isn't too fancy. I thought the cleaning fee was a little steep for the condition we left the house (especially considering the smell when we got there) but not enough to make a big stink about it.

Owner's Response: I apologize for my zealous efforts to eliminate odors from previous guests. I do my best to ensure a clean and fresh environment when new guests arrive. I live about 400 feet from my rental property and I am quickly available for any questions my renters may have, without being intrusive. I do not control the wildlife on the property and many guests find the various animals appealing. I try to clean the dock as often as possible. I am an animal lover and allow pets on a case by case basis. I do not charge any extra rental fees or security deposit fees, as do many other property owners. I will reconsider allowing pets now due to the large amount of dog hair and odors that some renters leave. Most pet owners in the past have been very responsible.
