Very good

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at this property for many years now, and have always been well pleased. The location id quiet, peaceful, and nicely shaded, which is a blessing on hot sunny afternoons!. It's size, as well as the price range, always seemed well suited to the needs of our party, whether the stay was for a fishing trip, or for a husband and wife getaway retreat. The property has been well kept up over the years, and the owner has always been very responsive to any minor needs that arose during a stay. Needless to say, these things have helped keep us as repeat customers for something over 10 years now. That's a great review in and of itself! Bottom line, you really can't go wrong with this property, at this range of pricing, for access to the charms (and fishes) of the Vineyard! And we're looking forward to returning ASAP!!

Great Value for a Family Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time at the Vineyard and the first at this house. I won't have to look any further on my next visits. The house is quiet and secluded at the end of a dirt road yet accessable to the bus system for those without a car. We love to drive everywhere and this was a great home base to visit the beaches and lighthouses. So close to Edgartown center you can walk there as well as to the Stop and Shop supermarket. The owners are very nice and easy to communicate with and the property was very clean. This house made the island adventure very affordable for my family who would much rather spend money on adventure rather than sitting in a five-star resort and not seeing the sights. The house is modest in size but ample for family of four with a full kitchen and laundry facilities which is import so you don't have to overpack. Be sure to stop at Edgartown Pizza and make sure you check out the Black Dog locations for their bakery as well as their clothing line (outlet in Oak Bluffs next to their regular store). Flying Horses Carosel in Oak Bluffs is a must for kids. The beaches we liked most were State Beach in Oak Bluffs and East Beach on Chappiquiddick. If you are there in the summer, you must catch a performance by the Vineyard Sound, a college a cappella group that performs five times a week for donations.

Tops in value

  • 5 of 5

I co-rent with a fellow fisherman from Vegas who makes his pilgrimage East in May to fish the Vineyard waters. The property is ideally located to some of the best fishing spots on the Island w/o having to contend with traffic. If one does not mind a dirt road and seeing deer and other animals in the area, this is a great location and an outstanding value. We have rented on the Vineyard for many years at several properties but this has been our choice for the last 4 years. Not to be overlooked is the service by the most congenial owners who really care about their renter's well being.

Great Value!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this house for several summers with our two young children. After staying at other locations on the island throughout the years, we have always come back here. Although the house is small, it is located in one of the best spots on Martha's Vineyard; close to the bike path, beaches, and center of Edgartown. Enjoy a short walk to Morning Glory Farm or continue into town (all via the bike path which is located at the end of the street- having two young children this is an asset!). Modest furniture, cozy, and has all the basic amenities you need. We also enjoy the privacy it has to offer, situated on a wooded lot. This home is a very affordable way to experience the joy of Martha's Vineyard!

Best on the Island

  • 5 of 5

Over the years I have stayed in various places on Martha's Vineyard. My only regret is that I did not find this rental a lot sooner. Since my trips to the island are just to fish I spend very little time in any rental other than to sleep. When it comes to the "bangs for the bucks" this rental is the absolute best. The same holds true for the owner /landlady who is just great to do business with. And over the years i've had to do business with some that should be out of the rental business completely. This pleasurable rental just makes my 2 annual visits much more enjoyable.
