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.

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.

Above our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the house for a week with the intention of having our friends with their children visit. When we arrived, there was information about the area and a nice sparkling wine left to greet us and the house was very clean with flowers from the garden on the table. The house easily accommodated 4 adults and 3 children. Everyone was very comfortable and thought the house was beautifully laid out. We had the kids on the 3rd floor and they slept easily through the adults talking in the evenings. The house has plenty of space for people to sit and chat, whether it's on the second floor balcony overlooking the yard or downstairs in the living room or on the third floor. The yard provided plenty of space for the kids to safely explore and romp around in without us worrying. The location was great because it was an easy drive to anywhere, a good run into and out of Vineyard Haven, and still very private.

As for practical details, the overall renting and paperwork process couldn't have been easier and smoother. It was all handled very quickly and efficiently. During our stay, we did have some issues with the internet during our stay, but we easily reached the owner and he quickly fixed it. Everyone was incredibly helpful and responsive and made our stay that much better.

Overall, the house was so much nicer and interesting than our expectations and, as a result, we had an incredibly wonderful time on the island. All of us enjoyed the house and count ourselves lucky that we found it!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review, Jodi. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the house and found it comfortable, spacious, quiet and private. That's the first complaint I've heard about the mattresses. . .and though I am certainly not happy to hear that you found them uncomfortable, I am happy to know about it so that the issue can be resolved.

It is 1.3 miles through the forest on an enchanting dirt road to this secluded beach. Tashmoo Beach-goers have access to shallow, brackish “Lake Tashmoo” on one side and a lifeguard patrolled (during the summer) cooler and deeper ocean beach on the other. One of the Vineyard’s best beaches!
