About the property

This well-furnished and architecturally unique two-to-three bedroom house is located on 2.5 secluded acres in Aquinnah. The house has gorgeous 180 degree water views and the private beach is just a two minute walk away on a grassy path.

The house has 2 bedrooms on the second floor: The master has a full-size bed with an adjoining bathroom & shower; the other has twin beds plus an adjoining bathroom. There is also a small office located upstairs between the bedrooms. Televisions /DVD (Comcast cable) are located downstairs and in the master bedroom. Wireless internet is accessible throughout the home. A third bedroom with twin beds is located in what might be called an English Basement. It is above ground on three sides and quite large, but suitable only for teenagers or an au pair.

On the main floor there is a lovely kitchen with lots of light and great views that opens into a small dining area, sitting room and corner study.

A small semi-circular deck is right outside two large sliding glass doors. There is a second large living area with a dining table that seats four, but opens to seat ten. A third bathroom containing a full bath with tub and shower also is located on the main floor.

The house is equipped with a washer and dryer, dishwasher, electric stove, and efficient gas heater for chilly nights (rarely needed in summer). Because it is a private home and the owners love to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped with blender, food processor, mixers, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, bread maker and lots of pots and pans .There are lovely dishes as well. The house comes with all linens, towels, table linens and lawn service. There is also an outdoor shower that overlooks a small garden. Lawn care is provided.

Great beachfront house & spectacular water views

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location ! No better get away than this charming cottage with access to private beach. Two decks and both of them provide captivating panoramic views of the water. Every morning our family was waking up the sounds of the ocean and wildlife. No neighbors... no sound of cars, no trace of civilization...literally a 2 minute walk down to the private beach on a path one of a kind... decorated with bouys on each side, found on the shore over the years. Picturesque private beach and if you love walks within 10 minutes you will reach famous Aquinas Cliffs. At night the light from the Gay Head Lighthouse sweeps across the property. This lovely house has a real home feeling and features a private collection of great books in the library. House easily accommodated our family of six and had everything we needed, the kitchen was more than fully equipped. Oversized outdoor shower is to die for! Minutes away from the bike ferry, which was an adventure for the kids and provided fun access to Menemasha shops, ice cream, and of course great restaurants. Walking distance to arguably the islands best restaurant! If your lucky enough to find an open week…grab it and experience an unforgettable vacation on this awesome "up island" property!

Paradise Found

  • 4 of 5

Upon disembarking from the ferry we began an adventure of wonder and delight. As we arrived at this house and started unpacking we immediately felt ourselves relaxing. The view, the sound of the waves and seabirds, the smell of the ocean all welcomed us. The house was clean and well prepared for our visit. The house is interesting as it has grown over the years with additions. There are multiple decks with outdoor seating and tables. Indoors there are several comfortable conversation seating areas, two eating areas, three bedroom options, three bathrooms, a well-supplied kitchen and for the workaholic- several workspaces with wireless internet service. We used the outdoor shower daily. While it was just the two of us, this house can easily accommodate a large family or two small families. For a week we basked in doing as little as possible, often just staying in all day reading and relaxing. The sandy beach was a short walk from the house offering amazing sunsets and a visiting seal! If you want privacy and quiet, this is the house to rent. This house in Aquinnah is the ideal retreat we needed. We are already looking forward to our return next year.

Fantastic secluded beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a stay at this lovely secluded waterfront home. It has great views, is very comfortable, and is a quick 2-3 minute walk from a beautiful small beach. We spent several afternoons walking on the beach to the Gay Head cliffs and watching beautiful sunsets. This home is perfect if you want to be off the beaten path, with peace and quiet and eat in. It is not for you if you want to run into town every five minutes. House is very comfortable and well equipped. Deck is great for lazy evenings grilling out fresh seafood. The large outdoor shower is fantastic! house is well maintained. I would definitely come back here again.

Great Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage in May and love it, it was exactly what we were looking for ( A private romantic vacation). The house was fully furnished with everything you could think of, it is practically on its own private beach, in 5 days we only saw 2 people on the beach. Also it is a short walk away from some amazing clay cliffs. The owners were great and very helpful throughout the booking process. I would recommend this cottage and look forward to visiting next year!
