GREAT HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION, RESPONSIVE OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5
There were 3 couples, 2 infants and a babysitter on our week long stay at "The Blue Whale" and the home met and exceeded all of our needs. Location is in Katama section of MV. We were a 1 minute drive from South Beach, and about 5-10 minutes from the main drag in Edgartown. Newly updated kitchen and baths, the place was beautiful on the inside. The porches were recently redone and it appears that owners David and Laura are making updates to the outside.

The highlights include the following-

- hard-plumbed gas line to a large stainless steel grill. No need to refill gas tanks, which was nice.
- two very nice decks. Upper had uninterrupted sun for tanning and great furniture including table with a large umbrella. Lower had perfect setup for watching bocce games.
- bocce court. An unexpectedly awesome feature, many days and nights were spent playing games on the large regulation court.
- Great outdoor shower.
- iPod docks and stereos in each and every bedroom.

Perceived Negatives- we had very few if any but I would not be intellectually honest if I didn't share negatives that others might perceive as such.
- Mosquitos- nature of location and wet weather, Mosquitos were bad this year on the island. I can't blame the owners and house but it was the only big negative of the trip.

- while not typically an issue, given the ocean breezes, know that this house has fans in every bedroom and main living area but does not have central air. If it did, it would have truly been the perfect house. The lack of central AC was only felt on two particularly humid evenings.

Aside from that, no real negatives for us.

Special kudos to owners Laura and Dave. When we had questions throughout the process they quickly answered them and when we had additional questions while on the island they were equally as responsive. They also were fantastic in that they allowed us to do a Thursday-Thursday rental given our obligations at a friend's wedding. They were also great in returning our deposit promptly as well as mailing back some little toys we inadvertantly left. We'd definitely rent from them again in a heartbeat and plan on doing so in the future if they let us!!!!
