TREETOP HIDEAWAY---WALK TO EXCLUSIVE LAMBERT'S COVE BEACH

West Tisbury Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Secluded gem, walk to beach, bus/bike for eats, farmers mkt, art, fairs, trails+

Traveling on a budget but looking for a pristine property just a walk from the beach? Rather bike/bus than hassle getting a car on the ferry? Sunny, airy, and oh-so-private, our rental is a contemporary space w/ open floor plan, lots of windows, and small private deck overlooking the woods. Walk 15 minutes and you'll be on exclusive Lambert's Cove beach. Seeking a secluded adult swim? You'll find quiet tranquility at the nearby freshwater, conservation swimming preserve. Traveling with a young child? Seth's Pond is just a short walk too.

No ferry reservation? We're centrally located, ideal for biking and/or taking the bus (yes, we're around the corner from the Island public bus stop--it will take your bike too!).Fine dining, casual eats, bakeries, groceries, farmer's market, galleries, hiking trails, and conservation areas are nearby.

Using Lambert's Cove Beach as your starting point, you can google the distances to the various bike trails on this helpful biking site: vwww.mapmyride.com/us/west-tisbury-ma/.

Our part of the Island is an oasis of peacefulness and natural beauty. While daytrippers pour into Oak Bluffs and Edgartown, West Tisbury is a hidden gem--laid-back and charming. Lambert's Cove beach is accessible only to West Tisbury residents and their guests which makes it an exclusive and serene destination.

As hands-on owners who use this property ourselves, we take meticulous care of both the interior and the grounds. I think you'll find from reading our reviews that the attention and care we devote to ensuring that our guests have a good experience is much appreciated.We take great pride in sharing the Island, and especially the timeless charm of West Tisbury with all our guests.

Alice purchased this cottage in 2006

Our location is rare--it's centrally located on the Island yet very secluded. It's one of the few properties where you are a few minutes walk from both an exclusive ocean beach and a conservation freshwater swimming preserve.

On even the busiest day of the summer, eg July 4, you will be far away from the tourists and the traffic.

You'll be a short walk from one of the most beautiful beaches on the Island--Lambert's Cove (which is accessible only to residents and tenants of West Tisbury) as well as to the Island's only freshwater beach on Uncle Seth's pond.

"JUST RIGHT."

"Just right."
  • 5 of 5
Before arriving, we'd convinced ourselves that our Martha's Vineyard fantasy - to be located near to up-island, at a great biking take-off point, in a clean, well-appointed and affordable place, with a private beach, and a walk-to, swimmable, beautiful pond was not achievable. But this is exactly what we found. The apartment is very clean, thoughtfully stocked, with a wonderful bed, and Alice, who is earnest in her commitment to support the best visit possible. Foodies take note: plan for a one-burner stove top, an ample convection/toaster oven, coffee maker, microwave and a grill. We enjoyed getting creative with that configuration. We biked the island, walked to Lambert's Cove Beach and to the freshwater pond. I've stayed at many 2-person apartments at the Vineyard and this was by far the best.

ENJOYED IT EVEN MORE THE SECOND TIME!

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from staying at Alice and Ken's studio for the second year in a row and can't wait to visit again next summer. The space is lovely, light, airy and new, and the location can't be beat if you want relaxation rather than crowds. We stayed with our 4 year old daughter and the size of the studio was perfect for us. It had everything we needed. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, pots and pans, a full-sized fridge, microwave, burner and convection oven/toaster. The bath has a tub and shower and a washing machine. No dryer, but my daughter really enjoyed helping me hang the clothes out to dry in the fresh air. It was great fun. There's a sweet little porch with two chairs and a table, a hammock and a wonderful outdoor shower. And, as before, we loved having access to Lambert's Cove beach, which is a very beautiful and uncrowded spot. We feel as though we've discovered the perfect getaway spot for our little family and plan to return next year. If you want the noisy, crowded atmosphere of Oak Bluffs, then this isn't the place for you. But if you are looking for a peaceful little retreat that is well-located and a short drive to almost anywhere on the vineyard, you've found it!

PEACEFUL. PRISTINE. PRETTY MUCH PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My second summer staying at what I have come to love as my "magical treehouse". Surrounded by quiet and privacy and trees this is a beautiful space above a large garage. All amenities provided; clean and modern. My favorite things: Outdoor shower, so close to Lambert's Cove Beach and Landbank owned Ice Pond which is beautiful, very nice owners yet all the privacy one would need. Truly wonderful!

A LOVELY HIDEAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay last summer at this wonderful little hideaway. I was a bit concerned about the size - there were three of us - me, my husband and our 3 year old daughter. But, the space is layed out beautifully and we were all very comfortable. There is a lot of great stuff packed into this studio - a bathroom with a tub/shower, comfy bed, extra twin bed, adorable kitchen with a full fridge, and storage space in the garage to boot! We were even able to find adequate space for our daughter's pack and play without it getting in the way. And we were thrilled that there was a washing machine (cleverly tucked under the bathroom counter). There isn't a dryer, but it was fun hanging our clothes out to dry on the clothesline with my daughter.

Staying here allowed us access to the glorious Lambert's Cove Beach ~ what a treat. And although the studio is on the same property as the main house, we had our own driveway lots of privacy . Alice and her husband are warm and friendly, and we look forward to seeing them again when we return this summer. Happily, we can pack a bit lighter because Alice has thought of everything!

NOTHING COULD BE BETTER

  • 5 of 5
"I loved your studio. It was immaculate and stocked with any and every amenity I could hope for as a renter from paper towels, laundry soap and such staples to lovely furniture, cookware, and such a comfortable bed! Your generosity in giving us half of the garage for storage, umbrella and beach chairs and an amazing outdoor shower was just icing on the cake! Nothing could have been better than this perfect "treehouse" surrounded by light and such a short walk to the most beautiful beach on the island!"

SO WELCOMING

  • 5 of 5
"Once you enter, you feel like you've always been here. The place is
spacious, bright, and tastefully decorated (even with some original art). It's
spotless and immediately welcoming. The bathroom and all the appliances
are new. It has its own deck and the property even has an outdoor shower!
The location is private and very quiet, yet within walking distance to the
beach. You will feel like this is really your own special place on The
Vineyard."

Owner's Response: "Welcoming" is exactly our goal so we are gratified that was your experience. As hands-on owners, we pay particular attention to decor and maintenance (more so I think than properties that are managed by realtors). It was a pleasure having you visit.
