We designed and built this wonderful home. It is our dream home. Tom, my husband, owned an insurance agency. I, Cynthia, taught high school and college mathematics in the Hartford, Connecticut area. We have 2 grown sons with their own special families and 5 grand children (4 girls and 1 boy). We personally manage this home and take pride in it. We do all our own renting, speaking with potential renters and getting to know their special needs and concerns. Each year new, exciting improvements are added to make our home a wonderful place to share with our great renters.
Cynthia or Tom Lally purchased this house in 1995
We wanted something 'very special' and this home is 'very special'. The location is so fabulous! We watch sunsets each evening from either our great cable system deck or while eating dinner in our dining room. The setting is amazing! We border Katama Bay at it's tip and is parallel to the south beach of the Atlantic Ocean. It is just a short walk to the water. Plus being on Chappaquiddick Island is like being in one of the world's most beautiful and incredible islands.
This home offers total privacy, peace and quiet escape. You will not find a more wonderful place to relax and enjoy Views... Views and more Views. Far from crowds.* Read our past renters' reviews and then decide if this home offers everything you want for your lovely vacation.
We appreciate the kind words of our guest. They rented for the first week in July as a family vacation. We are so lucky to share our home with such wonderful people. The new deck was a huge hit since it provides an unobstructive water view, complete privacy and total peace. Sitting on the deck at sunset is a treat. The best part of the vacation is the beauty that Chappaquiddick Island offers all those who are fortunate enough to spend time there.
Our family stayed in this wonderful home in August 2012. Cynthia was kind enough to arrange for our ferry tickets in advance, which saved us much worry. We had visited Chappy last year during our trip to MV, and decide that we would try a week there. We were definitely off the beaten path with this house, and were admittedly a little nervous when the pavement ended and we had to drive on a dirt road. We were so pleased when we saw the house! It is very spacious and the view is spectacular- just like the pictures! The deck was beautiful! Everything was perfect and clean. The owner, Cynthia, helped us figure out an issue we had with the DirecTV immediately. The beach is just a short walk or even shorter bike ride from the house. Wasque Beach (closed when we were there due to erosion) and East Beach are also just a bike ride (or short car ride) away. We loved the remoteness of the home, yet the proximity to Edgartown provided us with everything we needed. We also took advantage of the offerings at the Chappaquiddick Community Center- my husband and I took a yoga class, and my kids took sailing and tennis lessons. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place on MV.
I spent 2+ weeks at this fabulous house in the fall. What a wonderful, relaxing experience. The view over Katama Bay is spectacular and changes every day an throughout the day. The the fabulous deck and comfortable deck furniture is the perfect place to watch the colors change, read a book, watch the birds over the marsh, or take a nap. The location is great for taking long walks on the beach or walking on the Trustee land or the lanes of Chappy. The property is very private and very quiet -- especially in the off season! The house is beautifully appointed, very comfortable (great mattress in Master bedroom!) and has anything you need for a short or extended stay. The owners were the best! They were great with communicating details and making arrangements. I would come back here in a heartbeat!
My parents and young kids (5 and 7) enjoyed a beautiful spring break on Chappy. Though chilly, this is such a peaceful time to explore all that this location has to offer. Long walks on nearby trails and beach, bird watching, shell collecting, and sunset soaking. House was clean and very comfortable and well equipped. We hope to come back!
We girls get together at least once a year for a chance to catch up and spend time with each other. This was the perfect location for this. Beautiful sunsets, wine on the deck, walks on the beach....Cynthia was so very gracious providing information on good restaurants in Edgartown and making sure we were all situated and comfortable. Tranquil, peaceful, transported to another world. Thank you for this wonderful experience in your very lovely home!
I find that experiences often become distilled in memory into the most striking vignettes. Here are mine for our wonderful trip to this home in August of 2014: Our family getting together for a meal together in the upstairs dining room against the backdrop of early evening sunshine, grilling hotdogs and hamburgers together on the grill downstairs, getting up early for a sunrise over the eastern side of Chappaquiddick, hiking around Wasque point on a beautiful day, going on the trustees of the reservation tour which leaves from the Japanese garden out to Cape Poge lighthouse (learning along the way about local plant life and the migration of local birds), the multitude of windows providing great light into the upstairs living room, taking in the sparkling tapestry of sunlight which reflects off of Katama Bay, creating a spectacular view from the upstairs deck of this house.
Chappaquiddick is a special place and this is a special house. It features a really privileged location near Wasque point. You are walking distance to Katama Bay and Wasque point. True, it is a bit of a hike into Edgartown and the Ferry fee provides a slight disincentive to making the trip into town. You have to come supplied with everything you will need by way of groceries. But it is worth it because this home offers you a quiet, nature-infused experience that I do not believe you can have in many other rental offerings.
We got very lucky with the weather while we were there (it was warm and sunny every day). That was a lucky thing. But within the realm of reliable, positive, constants for your upcoming vacation, this home will provide one.
This was the first time that we stayed on Chappaquiddick. On our last trip we stayed at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown. That was a great experience and a very different type of experience (pool, bar, hotel amenities, proximity to restaurants). If you enjoy taking hikes, getting up early, quiet walks to the ocean, you will love this special offering.
My husband and I just returned from a delightful week on Chappaquiddick, having spent it at a home we have rented several times in the past but have been unable to visit for several years (we are now empty nesters!). This house is a perfect get-away: it is very comfortable, well-equipped and well-maintained, with views that are lovely, spectacular sunsets from the deck, and an easy walk to Katama Bay. The island is quiet with lots of beach and woods for walks, and a very short ferry ride, by car to explore Martha's Vineyard, or as walk-on passengers if you just want a nice dinner and some fun shopping in lovely Edgartown. You can tell the owners love their home, and we are grateful that they rent this beautiful place, allowing us to create terrific memories of our vacation.
Down a quiet dirt road in an exclusive Chappaquiddick area. Long Walks, Canoeing, Nature Trails, Total Privacy, Great fishing off nearby beach or on private charters. Also we are near good clamming areas and have equipment for our renter's use. Kyacking too. Wasque Reservation is nearby and canoes can be rented there to explore coves and Katama Bay. Wonderful location for families, honeymooners, people wanting total relaxation. Ocean view, waterfront, views plus more views! Ocean and Bay steps away.
