The Perfect Vacation Cottage for Your Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect place to spend our one year wedding anniversary!

Upon walking in, we were impressed by how spacious and clean it was. It is in the perfect location on a quiet side street, just a short distance from town as well as the beach. We enjoyed playing basketball on the court in the back of the house, watching movies at night in the comfortable living area, being able to do laundry in the full size washer/dryer, and using the outdoor shower to wash off our sandy feet from the beach.

Edgartown is our favorite spot and we were so glad to have a home instead of renting a hotel room. While Edgartown offers so many great places to eat (Among the Flowers has amazing lobster rolls!), it was really nice to be able to cook in the large kitchen.

Karen was extremely easy to work with, accommodating, and very responsive. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Thank you so much for helping make our anniversary special! This is the perfect way to vacation on beautiful Martha's Vineyard.

Perfect Getaway in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a long 'off season' weekend on Metells Way; the time of year when there is virtually no traffic on the roads, beaches are deserted and no waiting in restaurant lines.

This was our second stay in one of Karen's properties and like many who stayed before us we echo their sentiments about the cottage. The cottage is a quiet respite from the world beyond the shores of Martha's Vineyard. A short walk or bike ride brings you into Edgartown. Every detail is addressed to make for an optimal Island visit. Linens, bath, kitchen and beach supplies are in abundance. The cottage is comfortable, beautifully decorated and full of natural light. Karen is easily accessible for providing suggestions about where to go and what to do while on Island.

We look forward to future stays when we need a break from reality. Thank for creating the perfect getaway in 'paradise'.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was a real pleasure to stay at the cottage on 8 Metells Way. It's an

absolutely beautiful house and was just perfect for the two of us. We

enjoyed its wonderful location, beautiful light, and the comfort of the

furnishings. After riding around the island on our bikes, coming "home"

in the evening and sitting on the porch was so relaxing. We truly had a

wonderful vacation and hope to return in the future.

Perfect place for a Martha's Vineyard getaway for 2

  • 5 of 5

The guest house is just that - a freestanding house that has all the room a two people could possibly need. The open concept kitchen / living room area is great for enjoying a cup of coffee or winding down after a long day. The king size bed was great, and the bedroom has plenty of storage / closet space. The bathroom is massive and exceptionally well appointed. Huge shower, separate toilet room partition, and of course, a hot tub that can easily fit two. The location is close to Katama Beach and closer downtown Edgartown. Perfect spot. Could not have expected any more. Thoroughly recommend.

Fabulous rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed on the Vineyard several times, but this is the first time my husband and I were able to get away alone. As soon as we arrived at this beautiful cottage we knew that it was something special. Everything was clean and tastefully decorated, and sunlight filled the rooms. The king sized bed was very comfortable. It was very well stocked with everything that you might need for a comfortable vacation. We loved it so much that we have already reserved the same week next year!

Car: recommended

Located right off the bike path and evenly positioned a mile from South Beach and a mile from the heart of Edgartown. Katama is one of the most sought after destinations on the Vineyard because of it's proximity to both South Beach & Bend in the Road Beach. A morning stroll into Edgartown is very do-able. A car is reccommended but one could manage easily with just bicycles. Wi-Fi and cable TV services included.
