Overview

Katama House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bath, Sleeps 6-8

This 4 bedroom home is conveniently located right off the paved bike path that leads to downtown Edgartown (1 mile) and South Beach (2 miles). This cape home was built as a replica of the Vincent House, which now is a museum in downtown Edgartown. The beautiful detailed custom woodworking and nicely appointed decorating makes this home a very charming Vineyard experience.

There are two bedrooms upstairs with a shared full bath. One bedroom has a Queen-size bed and the other room has two twin beds that can be converted to a King size bed if desired. The Master Bedroom is located downstairs and has a Queen-size bed and it's own private full bath. The fourth bedroom is small, located off the family room and is currently being used as an office but can accommodate one twin-size portable bed (provided). There is also a 'game room' with a couple of bean bag chairs and a Wii game system and plenty of floor space for other guests to crash on air mattresses (two twin-size provided). The family room and bright open kitchen are a perfect place to hang out after a fun day at the beach. The kitchen has high ceilings, custom wood cabinets, a table that seats 8 and all the amenities. Off the kitchen there is a 1/2 bath for visitors. The washer/dryer is located in the basement. Outside you can enjoy the nice hot water outdoor shower and then sit on the large deck and relax while grilling your day's catch. There is a large front yard perfect for throwing a ball around. All linens/towels included. Other amenities include beach chairs/umbrellas/toys/towels and a cooler.

There is also a 1-bedroom Guest Cottage on the same property, but different structure, that is available to rent. Except for the shared driveway, the Guest Cottage renters have their own private entrance, side and back yards, patio, etc.

About Marcia Macres

We live in the Boston area and have 20+ years experience on MV. Our first trips to MV involved bringing our bicycles on the ferry and biking the entire island. After an exhilerating day, we'd grap a cup of chowder and a beer and reluctantly catch a late ferry back home. We knew then we were hooked. We couldn't wait to get back to MV. Then we started staying in charming Inns for long weekends which lead to renting houses with friends over the years in Gay Head and Chappy. During these years we still biked a lot and learned the island very well and agreed that Edgartown was our favorite place to be because it was charming, convenient, and yet not too busy. Once we started having kids, it got harder and harder to haul all our toys for just a week or two during the summer, so we started looking at property and found this gem in 2001 and have enjoyed our MV experiences even more. Based on our own experiences, we try to make it very convenient for our renters by trying to have almost everything you need except for your food and clothes so your rental experience is less stressful and you can concentrate on having a relaxing vacation.

Marcia Macres purchased this house in 2001

Why Marcia Macres chose Katama

I drove by this house a couple of times when it was on the market. It looked very small from the road and I crossed it off my list. My realtor convinced me to take a drive down the driveway and promised I would be pleasantly surprised. I was! It's a hidden gem and much larger than it appears. There is a large garage structure that used to be a woodworking shop. The previous owner built the house as a replica of The Vincent House that is now a museum in downtown Edgartown. The inside of the Main House has a large open kitchen area with high ceilings and all custom cabinetry and flows into the family room that features a beautiful large fireplace/mantle and wide pine wood floors from an old VT farmhouse throughout the house. The house has so much beautifully detailed custom woodwork that it's got 'charming' written all over it. We instantly fell in love with the house.

Back outside, a 1/3 of the huge garage structure was later converted into a 900-sq.ft. 1-bedroom Guest Cottage that is also a vacation rental property.

What makes this house unique

The house is located right off a paved bike path that goes around the 'Katama triangle'. This is a great walk, bike, run, rollerblading path and is ~5 miles total. The Katama General Store is close by and is a popular destination if you want to grab a coffee/paper/scone in the mornings. You can also head into the cobble-stoned sidewalk of downtown Edgartown for some food or shopping (only 1 mile from house) or the opposite direction on the bike path leads you directly to South Beach (2 miles from house).

Many of our renters have commented that our location is the best of both world. It's close enough to the action but far enough away for some quiet relaxation.

perfect martha's vineyard get away

perfect martha's vineyard get away
  • 5 of 5
We have rented this house two years in a row. It is perfect for our family of five. There is plenty of room both inside and outside. We love all of the nautical and beach details throughout the house. The back porch is perfect for grilling and watching the stars. Our kids are particularly fond of the tree house and of having the upstairs bedrooms to themselves. It is also very close to the bike path that leads to the beach and into edgartown. We can't wait to return next summer.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed a wonderful week in this absolutely perfect home! It was spacious, comfortable and homey! We have rented many homes in the Vineyard and this was by far our favorite. You will not be dissappointed. The owners are responsive and have anticipated your every need. We hope we are able to return again next year.

Amazing location, the perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5
This property is lovely in all ways. It has everything- a kids outdoor room where there are bikes and beach chairs and skateboards waiting for your use. There is a gorgeous deck outside that is perfect for sitting and welcoming in the morning or relaxing on while people shower in the outside shower (or indoor- you have your choice of two) after the beach. It is less than a mile from Edgartown and 2 miles from South beach- as well as 1.7 to the fork airport- all within walking or biking distance and the great news is this house is right on the bike trail so choose where you want to go! We found everything easy with this house- you have plenty of storage for your kitchen items, you have a communal living room yet also another room that the kids can play in directly off the living room, you have two bedrooms upstairs and two on the main floor thus if you are renting with friends, you have areas you can go to for some privacy if you need a little time away from one another not to mention the treehouse and swing outside- my 10 year old son was delighted to have a place he could sit and read outside yet also swing. You have shade and also sunny spots outside- it really is the perfect house for a Marthas Vineyard trip. The owners are responsive and delightful people- they truly care that you enjoy their home as much as they do and the little personal touches inside make you feel right at home- and will give you a giggle. Could not recommend this house enough- the location, the property, the owners...get ready to be wow'd.

Located in the beautiful Katama area of Edgartown and only 1 mile to Main St. downtown Edgartown or 2 miles the opposite direction to South Beach, both accessible most of the way via paved bike path. This rental property street is located past the Katama General Store heading toward South Beach on the first street after the road splits into Katama Rd/Herring Creek Rd. The Katama area is much desired due to the quietness of the area compared to downtown's constant hustle and bustle, yet close enough to walk or bike into town in just a few minutes.
