About Tracy Gibbons

Welcome to Martha's Vineyard and to my home in Chilmark!! I have been coming to the Vineyard for over 40 years, and it's my favorite place on the planet. When I bought the house in 1999, it was the fulfillment of a long-time dream.

Tracy Gibbons purchased this house in 1999

Why Tracy Gibbons chose Martha's Vineyard

As a renter for many of these years, I have figured out what makes a vacation house attractive and comfortable. In fact, I had rented this house for my own vacation--and then ended up buying it! It's comfortably and completely furnished, and the bathrooms and kitchen have been renovated.

What makes this house unique

Ten Reasons Why This Is A Great House:

• It's located on North Road, equally convenient to both Chilmark and West Tisbury centers and an easy trip to all three down island towns--Vineyard Haven, Edgartown, and Oak Bluffs.

• I can safely walk along North Road, and I can ride my bike to Alley's for the paper. It's an easy ride to the State Forest bike path and the network of bike paths around the island.

• I think that Lucy Vincent Beach is the most beautiful beach anywhere--and to use this beach, you have to be staying in Chilmark.

• The house has everything I need all on the first floor, and when my friends come to visit, they have their own space on the second floor.

• With four bedrooms, two baths, and a separate family room, it's spacious and can comfortably accommodate couples, folks with kids, and even a couple of families who want to share their vacation.

• It's quiet and private.

• It has the amenities that I'd just as soon not do without--a dishwasher, a coffee pot that works, dishes that match, a microwave, a gas grill, pots and pans that still have the teflon on them, two cable TVs with DVDs, cordless phones with answering machine, wireless Internet access, AND, it's air conditioned!!!

• I never liked going to the dump or cleaning the house on the last night of vacation, so trash pick up and cleaning are included in the rent.

• I can get fresh-from-the-boat fish any time I want it right down the road in Menemsha.

• And last, but far from least--it's just a short drive to Chilmark Chocolates!!!
