About Sheila Bresnehan

The Vineyard has always been a special place for our family, offering so many diverse and wonderful activities. Before purchasing we rented in Katama and realized you are going to drive to the beach anyway so why not be in town so you can walk to everything including a beach. As soon as you get on the ferry all your worries are gone and you are ready for a PVD (perfect Vineyard day). So many great memories have been created here. Now it's time you create yours.

Sheila Bresnehan purchased this house in 1999

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were three couples that recanted this very lovely house on a weekend to attend a wedding. We each had our own bedroom and bath. Enjoyed time in the big eat in kitchen and family room. We were able to walk to town and go all over on foot. To go to the beaches we needed a car but it's a great house near everything.

Great Home, Great Location, Great Owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sheila's home in Edgartown for three nights with our extended family from Germany. Pre and post trip communication was clear and concise. The home is conveniently located on the Main Street into Edgartown. Clean, well cared for and well equipped, the home comfortably accommodates 8-10 people, with extra space and privacy provided in the guest house. Groceries and several restaurants are within walking distance. Several beaches and Edgartown are 5-15 mins. by bike. I would recommend the home for any large family or group who wants to relax on the porch or patio, grill some fresh fish, and enjoy a bottle of wine while the kids entertain themselves with the toys in the shed or run down to the DQ for a soft serve. Island living at its best!

Lovely Home Close to the Heart of Edgartown

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister, niece and I enjoyed staying in this charming home during our first visit to Martha's Vineyard. Located on Main Street, it is a short walk to downtown Edgartown for dinner, ice cream, catching the ferry to Chappaquidick, or just strolling the streets to look at the historic homes and churches. Both the home and nicely landscaped yard are impeccably maintained and served as a comfortable and welcome retreat after a day's adventures. On the last night of our visit we had lobsters boiled at the seafood store right across the street and then walked along South Beach until sunset.

Great family home in great location!!

  • 5 of 5

I went to MV for a wedding that was in edgartown and the location was PERFECT! Walking distance to everything with fish market across street and several grocery stores nearby. The house itself was also very large and comfortable to accommodate our whole family. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a nice meal. There were also great things in the shed to help with downtime (bike, bags, toys for kids). Homeowner was very responsive to any queries we had. Would definitely rent the house again in a second!

Excellent home and weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the perfect location, right in Main Street in Edgartown. We went for a girls' weekend and the house had plenty of space for all of us to stay with the multiple bedrooms and additional fully furnished cottage with beds and a pull out couch. The house was perfect walking distance from downtown Edgartown. We were able to walk down for breakfast, lunch, dinner and shopping, and it was a nice stroll. The house also has a great yard in which we had a clam bake one night. It was the perfect space for an outdoor cookout. The house was perfectly clean and equipped with all the amenities we were told to expect, including cookware, bathroom essentials, etc. we had a terrific stay and would love to return next year!

Memorable Experience on Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Martha's Vineyard was too short! We loved the historical look and feel of the home and the location was fantastic. Several of the family members took advantage of the bikes and rode to town and across the little ferry to Chippaquiddick island while others of us walked to town for shopping and dining. Several specialty food shops are within walking distance... actually across the street. So convenience for cooking at home. The kitchen is well stocked for serving a large group. The commercial businesses are in charming homes so you have to look for the signs. All of us in our group agree that we would definitely come back again.

Upon returning, you have a quiet, peaceful retreat in a lovely garden setting.
