Designed by a renowned architect of his day, beauty of this property drew me in. Lots of natural light, including a skylight that shines the full moon on the staircase. A wrap porch, from which you can look over the island of Chappaquiddick to the right, then look to the left to look over Cape Cod. Wake to the beautiful sunrise on the sound. It still enriches me and starts my day right.

Jeanine sent this nice note after a 2 week stay that included a horrific storm which took down a telephone pole. I saw MY phone pole being worked on during the storm on CNN, as CNN was around for President Obamas visit, and I guess President Obama was staying indoors for this storm!
" Dear Thea,
Thanks so much for a wonderful stay! We completely enjoyed your home even through the storm! Thanks for the prompt return of the (security) check as well. Enjoy the fall and we'lll be in touch! Best, Jeanine
We have stayed in this wonderful house for a week in the summer since 2006. We have had nothing but a wonderful experience in this perfect house. The location is perfect, close to town and the bike path. The view of the ocean from the front porch and several of the bedrooms is spectacular! The house is very large with plenty of room. An added feature is a nice front yard where the kids can play. The landlady is wonderful and can be easily reached if any issues arise. Overall, a great place stay on Martha's Vineyard!!!
Every year my friends and I spend at least one weekend in Martha's Vineyard enjoying all the island has to offer. However, this year was slightly different for me for the home I originally intended to rent was double booked. In a state of panic (the ferry tickets were purchased, etc), I started calling every rental possible of which I was denied due to the short weekend stay. Then I called Thea Hansen, a lovely and charming woman who graciously rented me and my friends her home. When we arrived at this beautiful home, not only were we amazed by the character of the home itself, but the view it offered!! Unfortunately it rained the entire weekend, but we did not care for we did not want to leave this house!!
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND RENTING THIS HOUSE!!
The location could not be better - we enjoyed walking to town for coffee each morning, nightly strolls and incredible views from almost every window. We live on the water year round so it takes a lot to get us excited but this home did it. Owner was quick to return security deposit and home was exactly as represented. More room that we needed and while we didn’t do much cooking - the kitchen is well equipped for a large family. Only issue we had was the week went by too quickly. We also had the good fortune of being there over the 4th of July and saw fireworks all along the coast of Cape Cod from one of the many decks!
