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 Chilmark

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 ride my bike to Alley's for the paper, and it's an easy ride to the State Forest bike path and the network of bike paths around the island. Nearby there are many preserved areas with extensive hiking trails.

• 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, gas and charcoal grills, 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!!!
