About Barbara Dourmashkin-Case

This is a family owned property built by my parents Dr and Mrs Leonard Dourmashkin. I, Barbara Dourmashkin-Case rent the property and manage it along with my brothers Dr Peter Dourmashkin, Dr Thomas Dourmashkin and Dr Michael Dourmashkin.

Barbara Dourmashkin-Case purchased this house in 1970

Why Barbara Dourmashkin-Case chose Gay Head - Aquinnah

Guests and family members feel this is one of and for some the best location on Martha's Vineyard because it has three acres and has spectacular 360 degree view of the ocean waves, glorious sunsets and the Aquinnah lighthouse. It is directly across from the beach which can be reached by short walk down a private path. The family has had many great summers and wonderful memories of good times at the house and now is sharing our little paradise with guests.

What makes this house unique

We have recently added a new deck and it is a continuing process to improve our home with new improvements every year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We've never rented before. We've always had our own homes to vacation in. Venturing in to the renter's market was a bit intimidating for us. But this property, and the owners made us feel so welcome, that we now feel as though we belong on the Vineyard in the summer. This house has a wonderful energy - open and airy. Many days we might chose to just to just lay on the deck and hear the surf, rather than rush down to the beach. And the evenings under the stars with the surf were just magical. Our children enjoyed the freedom of easy access to the ocean and long walks with us. Paradise!"

Perfect Aquinnah Beach House

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and I had the most amazing stay at this vacation home. Fabulous views and incredibly convenient beach access. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!
We were delighted to discover that the owner, Barbara Dourmashkin, has released a children's book called "Peggy Day's Martha's Vineyard Adventure" - it's a precious book with wonderful drawings and we read it to our toddler every night at bedtime. We ended up buying a few copies at the Bunch of Grapes book store in Vineyard Haven. There are a couple Martha's Vineyard themed children's books out there, but this one is the best!

Beautiful and relaxing stay on the Vineyard

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Moshup trail. The house is well kept, spacious and very comfortable. The deck is great and the kitchen well-appointed.

The best parts of the house are the sunsets from the balcony, which were spectacular, and the easy access (a short walk) to the splendid private beach, which is quiet and so much fun.

Our young daughters enjoyed the house, the puzzles and the wildlife we saw on the property.

The house is relatively far from the major towns down-island but that adds to the serenity and the charming general stores in Chilmark and West Tisbury have good food and all the necessities.

We left with the hope that we can return again every summer!

Very comfortable home, perfectly lovely setting

  • 5 of 5
This lovely beach home is located on a hill, surrounded by ample lawn, and is shielded from neighbors and the road by many trees. It is very well equipped with gas grill(and full propane tanks!), full size laundry, easy to use kitchen and amazing views of the lighthouse and the ocean. The owners have thought of everything to make staying here a true vacation including details like a supply of laundry detergent, dish washer detergent, cooking spices, and paper goods. Each room has heating, which we needed on a few evenings. The house was spotless, and there were ample towels, sheets, beach equipment. There are several excellent restaurants nearby in Menemsha, and the cafe at the cliffs (5 min. Drive) has delicious breakfast and lunch offerings. Deep sea fishing in The Skipper out of Oak Bluffs was one of the hi lights. Freshly caught Black Sea bass was delicious! We would definitely recommend this rental,to friends and plan to return ourselves.

Relaxing Vineyard escape!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented this lovely home in Aquinnah twice and are already looking forward to returning next year. It's a great, quiet location, good for picnics on the beach across the road, walks to the Lighthouse and shops for ice cream, riding to take the bike ferry into Menemsha, lazy afternoons playing wiffleball in the yard and grilling while watching the beautiful sunsets from the incredible wrap-around deck. The owners are super-accessible and accommodating, the kitchen is outfitted with all brand-new appliances, and there's wifi if (sadly) you have to telecommute for part of your vacation!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
Location, location, location! View from the deck, so gorgeous. We had a fabulous time! Beautiful grounds, beautiful house, especially the upstairs with the wrap around deck and open floor plan looking out at the ocean. 3 minute walk to the beach made it so easy to come and go. The owner checked on us be sure everything was to our liking. Lots of linens, towels. Great biking, walking the beach, sailed boat at Red beach, sunsets and dinners on the porch were amazing. Place to go to relax and take in mother nature!
