Our Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our 4th year in a row renting this great house. It is perfect for our family of five. The house is immaculate. Location is great. It is a short drive to South Beach, downtown Edgartown, the fish market and Stop and Shop. Long Point (our favorite beach and place in general) is about 20 minutes away by car. Each bedroom has a flat panel TV as does the living room. The deck is spacious and the outdoor shower is very refreshing after a day at the beach. The house has a new owner who has made some nice improvements to the property including new living room furniture, the flat screen televisions, a new clothes washer and some nice artwork. The bikes (three for adults and two for young children) are a nice touch as well. The home also comes with beach chairs and games for the yard and beach. This is an affordable and extremely clean and comfortable property. We look forward to coming back next year.

Our home in the Katama region of Edgartown provides the comforts of home while perfectly located in close proximity to the charming downtown district and South Beach. No need to drive, it’s close enough to bike via the back roads or the Herring Creek bike path. The Edgartown Great Pond is close by and perfect for launching a small boat or kayak. Hop in your car and you can fish, swim, crab, boat, golf all within a 15 minute ride.

Bike down to the Katama Airfield to have breakfast or lunch while watching vintage prop planes come and go on a grass field. Both the Katama General Store, great for fresh scones and coffee, and Morning Glory Farm, know for fresh baked goods and island grown produce, are a 15 minute bike ride away. Edgartown Village is also close, offering shops, restaraunts and night life. Everything from groceries, laundry, post office and liquor store are all located within a 10 minute car ride.

Other Activities: Close to town for shopping or picking up fresh fish for the grill. Easy access to Edgartown Great Pond for kayaking, crabbing or fishing. A quick ride to South Beach for sunning or taking on the waves. Head over to Morning Glory farm to get fresh island grown vegetables and specialty foods. Ride over to the Katama General Store for early morning coffee, fresh baked scones and the newspaper. Ride over to the Herring Creek bike path and head to town, the beach or up island.

Golf: There are several public and private golf courses on the Vineyard. The best public courses are Farm Neck (18 holes) in Oak Bluffs, overlooking Segontacket pond, and Mink Meadows (9 holes) in Vineyard Haven. Both have pro shops, cart rentals and practice ranges.
