Overview

Martha's Vineyard House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

(For the 2016 season, there will be a freshly renovated yard with a hard stone patio, new tables and seating, and improved landscaping, to make the yard area both more useful and more attractive). Beyond that, we will let the photos do the talking, but note that this home has some especially attractive features for large groups, such as bedrooms that allow for privacy due to access by 3 separate staircases. The new kitchen has two refrigerators, tile floors, and a high efficiency washing machine. Dining area has two tables that seat up to 16 people. There are a number of flat screen TV throughout the house. Mattresses and pillows are all protected with hypoallergenic liners.

With all that is new, there are still many historic touches that have been restored -- sliding panel doors with the original hardware in the living room, stained and leaded glass windows, and a funky 'Nantucket Bedroom' that is great for kids.

Outside you will find a large, shaded farmers porch, outdoor shower, gas grill, and a more private sitting area on the side of the house. Cross the street and you have access to tennis/basketball courts (we supply high quality tennis rackets and basketballs) and a playground. Take a few more steps and you are on Circuit Ave, surrounded by restaurants, shops, and nightlife. As for the beach and harbor (including ferry boats to the mainland), they are just a few scenic blocks away.

This home is professionally cleaned and maintained year-round, and the owner has been renting out homes on the Vineyard for over 15 years. Feel free to inquire about the two bedroom Edgartown home and the four bedroom Oak Bluffs home. vrbo numbers 43322 and 59668.

Just Great!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home in early September of 09 and now we are planning out 2010 trip. This home was just great for our group of 14. Others have said it, but we really appreaciate the space to spread out for our different families and yet all gather together in that great dining room, which seats about 15 or 16 people. It's a great place to just hang out. There are a lot of nice touches to this home that are really helpful for large groups: 2 coffee makers, 2 refrigerators, 5 or 6 televisions spread throughout the whole house, and the personal computer. Something else worth mentioning -- the mattresses and bedding are of a really high quality, something you don't usually think about until you arrive at your destination. The owner was very attentive and I was always impressed by how quickly he answered my emails. The location is great..,just around the corner from town and an easy walk to the beach. The park across the street with tennis and basketball, and stuff for the kids is a real place. We highly recommend this home.

We LOVED this house!! Can't wait to return to our Vineyard home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was meant to be for my group of 14 and it was the perfect fit!

Communication/ Booking:

This was not my first time to MVY, but my first time renting a house through VRBO abd I was nervous to say the least! I had planned a tril for 18-20 people and our first house was a no go due to drop off. It is hard to find an affordable house for an unusual number of people (13-14) only a week or two away from travel. Luckily, I saw the great reviews for this beautiful blue house and reached out to the owner, who was so accomodating and prompt with responses. Joe was defInitely a delight to work with from start to finish, giving helpful suggestions for travel and once I received the contract I knew that I had made the right choice!

Location!!!!

I cannot express enough how perfectly this house is located. Circuit Avenue, with all of the shops, nightlife and restaurants, is literally at the corner and one short block into the scene, but the house is tucked away on its block so you still have peace and quiet. The house is also a five minute walk to the water/beach and maybe a short 10 minute walk to the Ferry. We didn't need a car to get around. My group rented bikes to visit Vineyard Haven and Edgartown and simply walked into town for shopping.

The House!!!

The pictures do not do this house justice at all!! It is absolutely beautiful and well layed out. The huge porch has enough seating for 10 people. We watched the Blood Moon rising on the porch with wine and dinner and a beautiful view. There is a grassy park across from the house as well as a tennis and basketball court. The side of the house has a high quality gas grill and picnic table perfect for a bbq.

There are three different staircases from the main floor leading to the comfortable bedrooms and it is such a pleasant surprise. All the rooms in this house are tastefully decorated with inviting colors. The bedroom on the main floor is my fav. It truly felt like home.

There are two living rooms/living room and den with open space layout and french doors for privacy. The living room is very cozy, with smart tv, cable and dvd player. The den has a built in book case with games and such. We often fell asleep in these rooms and the house is so relaxing that our group of thirtysomwthings were falling asleep before 10pm! The dining room easily seats 15 people we spent a lot of time enjoying meals at the tables and cooking in the grand kitchen. All in all, we LOVED it and will rent again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a detailed review of the house. Your group was a pleasure to work with and I do hope you come back next year. We are already at work implementing a new design for the yard that will have a hard stone patio, new outdoor furniture, and better landscaping, so we hope you get a chance to see it.

We will DEFINITELY rent here again!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a three night stay at this home with 12 people (10 adults - 40's-50's, and 2 tweens). I would have to work hard to come up with a complaint! This group has rented many homes on the island over the past 20 years and this one has risen the ranks of absolute favorites.

Things I loved:

- multiple "wings" for sleeping; people really could have a little bit of privacy away from the big group.

- dining set up totally accommodated our big group

- 2 fridges: One for food, one for adult beverages! Brilliant!

- off street parking for our 3 cars, very safe

- the home is decorated beautifully, great colors on the wall, feels very homey. This house really LOOKS like the pictures!

- the house was clean, well taken care of, and the owner obviously spends the offseason investing money and elbow grease to get it in shape.

- the location is great -- very close to circuit ave and all the great shopping and eating that OB has to offer, the beach, and, of course, to Back Door Donuts. You really don't need a car to enjoy a great weekend here.

I'd point out that the bathrooms are a bit small; if you're a larger-bodied crowd, one or two of the toilets may feel a bit closed in for you. I'd also mention that there is a cool bedroom in the back with 3 twin beds, but you wouldn't put little kids in that space, unless you were confident in their ability to navigate tricky stairs. (You might also not put drunk adults in there, for the same reason :-) )

Finally, the owner was very collaborative with communication as the trip came upon us, and was SUPER responsive to any of my questions. He was a real joy to work with!

I would not hesitate to rent this place again!

Perfect House, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic one-week vacation on the vineyard at this beautiful house. The location is absolutely perfect—less than one block from Circuit Ave. (restaurants, arcade, ice cream, boutique stores, grocery store), a minute away from a playground, basketball and tennis courts and a few blocks away from the beach. We rented this house with another family (six kids under 7) and loved the convenience of walking everywhere.

The unique layout of the house is perfect for large groups. There are three separate staircases: first leading to two spacious rooms; second leading to two other spacious rooms and the third (off of the kitchen) leading to one very large room with three twin beds. There is also an additional room on the ground floor. At first, we thought the layout would be difficult with the kids and the stairs, but it turned out to be perfect. Each family took the staircases with the two rooms each and our two nieces (babysitters for the week) took the one larger room with three twin beds. It was so easy to put the kids to bed and enjoy dinner outside or inside without worrying that the kids would wake up. We loved the wrap-around porch, having the two refrigerators, outside shower and more than ample dining space indoor or outdoors. We were worried about how hot it would be at night and were pleasantly surprised to find up to two fans in every room (even though it got cool in the mornings).

As great as the house was, we were so impressed with the owner of the home. From the minute we inquired about the house he has been nothing but wonderfully responsive. The days leading up to the rental date, he emailed us a long list of restaurant recommendations. We arrived a bit earlier than expected and called him and he picked up right away and told us we could probably check in a bit earlier. Two days into our vacation, one of our kids decided to press all the buttons on the remote control and messed up the television. I emailed the owner and he responded within minutes and explained what we should do.

In all, a fantastic vacation at a wonderful home!

Our stay at 9 Wamsutta at Oaks Bluff

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful vacation at Martha's Vineyard. The home we rented for a week was very clean, so nicely decorated, and all the comforts of home. We were so impressed with the beautifully landscaped yard with 2 picnic tables to accomodate our large family, the very large kitchen (including 2 refrigerators), the very comfortable stylish living room with a flat screen TV, and a dining room that comfortably seated all of us. We also loved the idea of being in walking distance to the beach, to the shops, and just a walk across the street to the tennis courts.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm happy to hear that the new landscaping worked out for you. After installing the new septic system, we wanted to make the yard more attractive and more useful. It should be even better next year as the new plantings take root. Hope to see you at the home again some time in the future.

Truly a Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this home with my family and extended family for the past 5+ years during our annual family vacations to the Vineyard. It is truly our home away from home! Its location can't be beat! If you're looking for a house close to town, beach and park all are in walking distance - town and park literally steps away! The house itself is clean, modern and spacious. Enough room for privacy when you want it and family time for meals, games, etc.! Rent this house for your stay on the Vineyard and you won't be disappointed.
