Why David and Pam Cunningham chose Katama

We vacationed on Martha's Vineyard for years and thought it would be so nice to own a place someday. One day we saw a nice lot for sale in Island Grove, a private association neighborhood just 1.5 miles from downtown Edgartown. We bought it, designed our house, and two years later built it with summer guests in mind. The house is an ideal summer place, with open floor plan, lots of windows, cathedral ceilings, and screen porch. Many of our guests are multi-year repeats.

Call us on 781-849-1194 if you have questions about booking or about the house.

What makes this house unique

Very well-kept and immaculately clean. Quiet location on a cul-de-sac road. Free association tennis courts. Central A/C.

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this beautiful house every summer for over 10 years. The quiet location is perfect, near the local (farm) market, bike paths, beaches and towns. The house is well equipped and has a great layout, comfortable furnishings and tasteful décor. Pam and David are always quick to respond to any questions or (rare) issues.

Been renting this house for 10 years

  • 5 of 5

A high-quality house with high-quality owner. "first home" quality in a second home. Maintained to high standards. We love the open floor plan. There are lots of good sized windows that foster a through-breeze, and ceiling fans for those rare breezeless days. The location is great for general access and biking to the beach, and allows skirting most of the traffic slowdowns normally encountered on the island. The Ocean Grove development is a great place to walk. Highly recommended. We look forward to more years ahead!

Wonderful stay for the Fourth of July!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our merry band (me, my wife, our 6 year old son and 3 year old daughter) to the Vineyard to enjoy a relaxing week in the Vineyard for the Fourth of July holiday. We wanted a good location in the Edgartown area, good/excess space for a family of four, outdoor space for kids to play in and a location where we could conveniently meet people for social activities. We went 4 for 4.

We noted on arrival that the neighborhood was quiet and perfect for kids. The house was great and the kids loved sharing the room with twin beds (it took my wife about 30 seconds to reach the conclusion that the spare bedroom would have been perfect for her Mom to have visited for a day or two, but I digress). The high ceilings gave it a larger feel.

As a BBQ purist, I was happy to see the option of both a gas and charcoal grill in the backyard (I'm an old school charcoal guy). We had bikes so we enjoyed riding the neighborhood in the evenings, something we would recommend. By the end of the trip, we had gotten used to going to the outside deck for wine as a evening wind down.

Having rented properties in the Vineyard for visits since 1996 (this is the first time I've been inclined to write a review for a property - feel free to read into that what you will), I was appreciative of the personal touches Pam and David made, from the welcome note to a lovely bottle of wine to unwind.

We look forward to coming back soon!

We just returned from our second year renting this lovely home. We are experienced renters (16 consecutive years) on the Vineyard and this is our favorite rental house we've stayed at. The house is immaculately clean, very comfortable, spacious and well located on the Island. We recommend this house highly and we plan to return next summer.
