Fabulously Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Wow-Gwenn has this place decked to the nines! Upon arrival, I was immediately drawn to the upscale beachy décor. The furniture was perfect for lazy afternoon naps and reading. The bedrooms were all well stocked with towels, hangers, and the most comfortable bedding I could have imagined! This house is perfect for travelers of all ages- my son had an excellent time as there is more than enough room to run, throw a ball, ride bikes and play games.! The beach is super close and we loved riding our bikes there-it was so convenient and provided an excellent opportunity to remain active while being on vacation. We were able to cook all of our meals in the awesome kitchen that has everything you could imagine for cooking. We will certainly come back to Gwenn's home and I HIGHLY recommend this home to anyone that is looking for an amazing Martha's Vineyard experience!

Relaxing week at the vineyard

  • 5 of 5
As soon as we walked into the house, I knew it was going to be an awesome vacation. The house was absolutely beautiful and I felt right at home--Gwenn is totally prepared on all fronts. The pantry is stocked, there are at least a dozen bikes and locks ready for a ride to the beach, there are TONS of games in a closet (which was super awesome since we had some bad weather), and so many beach toys which the kids loved having to play with. I also loved where the house is located--literally a two minute drive or five minute bike ride from South Beach. Super convenient. And the road is charming. We took the kids to the farm down the road to see the cows and other farm animals and it was just a short walk! Gwenn was a wonderful host--there to answer questions and recommend a couple of restaurants and hiking trails. She's the best. We can't wait to come back! Thanks Gwenn :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Being less than a mile from South Beach is a big advantage, an easy bicycle ride is the best or a very short car ride eliminates the need for a long time to get to the beach. Please join us again for your vacation.

Very beautiful and yet very comfortable

  • 5 of 5
The minute you walk into this property you know that it has been taken care of very well. The kitchen has all the amenities that you could ever need. The open floor plan is great for getting the whole family together in one place. Plenty of bedrooms that are decorated very nicely, then amount of games will keep any family busy if you have rainy days or weeks. The amount of beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers beach mats at your disposal is wonderful. You don't even have to bring sand toys Gwenn has enough to keep the smallest child happy digging in the sand. If you are not a beach person you have your choice of about 10 bikes. This was the best house that I have rented, I would recommend this house to anyone wanting a peaceful and beautiful house to kick back in. Gwenn also has a very lovely bottle of wine and pound cake upon arrival.
Thank you so much Gwenn for a wonderful week we will be back next year

Amazing weel

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolute wonderful time. Walking into the house to find the house spotless the kitchen well stocke and a cake waiting was the best. The bikes allowed us to ride whenever and the fire pit for making smores was a great time for both adults and kids. One could not ask for a better exoerience and I would HIGHLY reccommend this to all. Thak you Gwenn for your wonderful suggestions about where to eat and what to do. I will be going back next year.

Vacation Dream!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Gracious Living was a vacation dream. We were met with a warm greeting and scrumptious refreshments fit for weary travelers...what a treat.

The home is beautifully furnished, the bathrooms are tastefully done and supplied with necessary items. The bedrooms are beautifully fashioned with Ralph Loren linens and spreads. You will enjoy the opportunity to gather and watch a movie or assemble on the inviting back porch. The fire pit is a plus, we roasted marshmallows and then made smores...lot's of fun! Hammocks are available for recuperating after an active day at the beach. There is plenty of room for a good game of Bocce Ball, Volleyball, or any favorite outdoor game. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked for simple to gourmet meal preparations. Items for a day at the beach were available which provided for a wonderful time!

I highly recommend Gracious Living and will plan another visit. The location is the best, a wonderful vacation retreat! Thank you Gwenn for all you did!

Wow...Truely Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5
What an outstanding experience. We could not possibly have dreamed of a more sensational place to spend a week on Martha's Vineyard. It started the minute we stepped foot into an immaculate home owned by Gwenn and her husband. Beautiful open design with all of amenities to make the stay spectacular. Do you want to take a short bike ride to the beach or to town...no problem with the bikes that are provided. Do you want to enjoy the cool evenings sitting outside...no problem with the back patio and fire pit. Did you want to prepare a nice meal after a great day at the beach...no problem with a kitchen that is stocked to the nines with anything you could possibly use to prepare that special meal. Do you need a break from all that sun and fun at the beach...no problem staying entertained with a great entertainment system. Highly Recommended!!!

A vacation that will take you back to the simple ways of life without forgoing all the modern luxuries this great home has to offer, The Katama Farm and the Katama Airpark are located at the end of the street. Fresh vegetables are available at the farm stand. Downtown Edgartown is 2.5 miles and South Beach is 3/4 of a mile from the house, both are an easy bicycle ride. A walk in the evenings to visit the farm animals is always a treat, some evening you can just walk to the end of the driveway to see the animals. For those looking for adventure, the bi-plane rides are always a thrill.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Biplane sightseeing, Clamming, Carousel rides, Farm Institute, Lighthouses, Gingerbread Cottages. Bird watching, The Spa at the Mansion House for great massages, facials, manicures and pedicures is a 20 minute ride in Vineyard Haven.

Golf: Farm Neck Golf Course is a 10 minute drive from the house.
