About Bob

International fashion photographer moved to the Island in the early 80's after finding the wonderful serenity of Martha's Vineyard. The Isanders are such wonderful creative people, always willing to stop and chat.

Bob purchased this house in 1984

Why Bob chose West Tisbury

The Vineyard is a microcosm untouched by the outside world, it still has the old world values sadly disappearing from our lives. The quality of light and scenery are hard to beat, the beaches are magnificent. Not to mention the abundance of fish and bird life.

What makes this house unique

Quaint historical village situated in the center of Martha's Vineyard first settled in 1669. A rural setting, wonderful for country walks, scenic bike trails to most of the down island towns. The biweekly farmer's market, Artisans show and antique market at The Grange Hall are great fun and a fabulous source for the Island's best organic produce and an introductions to the local year round artists. The charming West Tisbury Public library has a marvelous selection of books both for adults and children, DVD of the latest films and documentaries. The pristine Lambert's Cove Beach belongs to the town which allows access to residents and renters for a small fee. Alley's General store in the heart of the village is an institution, first opened for business in 1858 has all the old world charm of another era where one can buy anything from local produce, coffee and pastries, newspapers to drill bits and light bulbs. The village is equidistant from Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob's place is a gemstone: a beautiful place with a gorgeous garden and fabulous furniture and knick-knacks and the best plates I've ever seen in a kitchen! As a photographer, Bob has filled his house up with wonderful pieces and books and keeps the place meticulously neat and clean. I came with my 2 small dogs and he couldn't have been more accommodating and sweet. You will love it here. It's peaceful and comfortable. On the weekend you can literally fall out of bed into the farmer's market and there's a strawberry festival in the church. The West Tisbury beach is also to-die-for. Rent this place!

Vineyard Charm!

  • 5 of 5

Bob's house is fabulous! We had an amazing stay here with our 3 children. We walked to the library, Ally's Market and the playground which is right across the street along with the weekly farmers market...something for everyone! It was also very easy to get to Chilmark and Vineyard Haven. Bob was so helpful and always there if we needed anything. The porch is the BEST...we sat out there every morning and evening and had great dinners on the farm table. The house is spacious, clean and very comfortable and is also decorated so tastefully. It had everything we needed for a our vacation. Bob even had hoola hoops in the playhouse for the children. It was perfect for our family and a true vineyard charm!!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented Bob's house for 2 weeks this August and had a lovely stay. The house is beautiful, well kept, and very comfortable. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We found everything we needed and more. The screened in porch was fantastic and we spent 80% of our time there. The outdoor shower was wonderful after the beach. Bob and Kate were very nice and even picked me and my daughter up from the airport.

We loved the central location, Ally's general store, 7A, and Tisbury farmers market are all within a block from the house. There is also a playground right across the street which was great because we had a toddler.

We couldn't have asked for anything else. We would definitely rent Bob's house again.

Perfect House in center of W Tisbury Village

  • 5 of 5

The house is great - perfect location around the corner from the General Store - I would walk over every morning to get the paper, coffee, and muffins; and across the street from the Grange Hall for the weekly Farmers Market and daily activities.

The huge screened porch was perfect for eating meals and hanging out.

The house is exceptionally decorated and maintained. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking - we would buy fresh vegetables at the local farm stands, and found the kitchen easy to make meals.

The owner is charming. He is very attentive and responsive to his renters.

Great outdoor shower!

Rental comes with full supply of beach chairs, umbrellas, buggy boards, skim board...

Highly recommend this property - Captain House charm, modern amenities, great location

We can't wait to return again next summer.

The Return of the Secaucus Seven

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with comfortable beds, lots of books, and a well-stocked kitchen! The screened-in side porch is one of the nicest features of this home. There were seven of us (friends for over 40 years) staying there for a week and we practically lived on the comfortable, breezy porch. The rest of the house is also lovely, clean and well-maintained. This is a charming home, easily accessible from all points on the island, and Bob is a charming, responsive, and easygoing host. We would certainly stay there again.

Wonderful stay in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Seven friends from some forty years ago (from college) were in Martha's Vineyard for a wedding of the daughter of a mutual friend and were lucky enough to stay at this beautiful house in West Tisbury for a week. It was perfect in that all the rooms were nice--even the room with two singles, I presume typically used for children, were lovely and no one felt that they got the short end of the stick. The house was open and airy and comfortable, with a long screened in porch that ran the length of the house, and where we spent much of the time. Kitchen was well-stocked with pots and pans and dishes. Bob, the landlord was friendly and helpful and very hands-on. The house is located in a little village so there was also a wonderful carry-out/lunch spot just a couple doors away when we didn't want to go out. We enjoyed ourselves so much and have spoken about doing it again. Recommend it very highly.

Great holiday, perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Bob's pretty, cosy and comfortable house on Martha's Vineyard. We found it to be ideally located and really well set up for our week long stay. It worked really well for two families and Bob was very helpful sourcing the various baby items we need ie baby seats, cribs etc. Whilst there may be newer properties available to rent, this house definitely had a warmth that added to our stay on the island. We have all agreed we would love to return and the house is a big part of that sentiment.
