Will return

  • 5 of 5

This property has a wonderful layout, plenty of space and really has a home feeling to it. I went with a group of people and everyone commented on how clean and bright all the rooms were. I especially like that there was a bathroom per 2 bedrooms.

Lovely home in secluded setting

  • 4 of 5

We booked a long weekend over the Columbus Day holiday. The house accommodated us all very well, 6 adults, all with private baths. Kitchen was setup pretty well with only a couple of minor problems: electric beater and one-half of toaster didn't work. Gas stove was great. We didn't grill outside but it was equipped to do so.

No bedding comes with the house so you have to bring or order your own. There is no cell phone reception in the house except on the third floor attic room by the window. You could get internet but you could not make or receive phone calls except in the attic.

It rained heavily on Sunday so we stayed in and watched a movie. The TV screen is very small. Not sure of dimensions.

We enjoyed staying at this location, as it was very private and the house is lovely.

Great location, comfortable and rustic

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gary's place over one week this August. We had a total of four adults and five kids. The size and configuration of the house was perfect for us. The kids could be upstairs on the third floor, out of our way! They even had their own bathroom. The adults had the two large and comfortable bedrooms on the second floor, and the first floor has a nice open plan that is great for family conversation during cooking, meals, and tv-watching, plus an extra bathroom with shower. The house had a cool, rustic vibe, with the exposed beams and slate tiles, but at the same time, it was perfectly comfortable. Very roomy for our group.

We also liked the location, as it was only a five-minute bike ride or drive into town, or a ten/fifteen minute walk. Really convenient. We mostly did our own cooking, so we visited the grocery store a lot. We also found it to be a good home base for our many beach outings, including the nearby Tashmoo beach (walkable and bikeable), Inkwell, Menmsha, and Aquinnah.


Good location, ideal for families, secluded but still near town, clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, everything in good working order.

Minor Issues:

We could have used a laundry basket to carry clothes, towels, etc., back and forth from the washer and dryer. Low-flow shower heads, with the exception of the first floor shower. Not a fan, but not a huge deal either.

The New Wing was tastefully decorated, very relaxing and captured the essence of the breezy outdoors of Martha's Vineyard. The property itself is easy to access from town but tucked away enough in the trees to give it a true destination feel. It had all the amenities to make our vacation truly magical. The immaculate upstairs bedrooms with access to a second floor porch with rocking chairs really added to the ambience and relaxing feel of the home.

The owner was available on the property to answer any questions and concerns. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning again soon.

Charming, Spacious, Private, Casual, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Within walking distance to a hidden beach, Private and comfortable. A lovely rental. And, if you have a larger party, say for a wedding, the property has other rentals a few steps away.
