Beautiful, comfortable, and welcoming! Never, ever disappoints. It's just THE BEST.
It's a beautiful, comfortable and welcoming place. Gorgeous views. Very convenient and supplied with everything you need. We love it and have been coming for years. It is simply the BEST.
Thanks for your review. So glad you keep coming back and looking forward to another ten years.
Great week in a great house
The house is large, clean and extremely well equipped. Sitting out on the patio enjoying a meal or a drink is everything we go to MV for. Mr. Wallen is a perfect host, availble if needed and otherwise elsewhere. We will certainly be back again.
6th year at the Smith Wallen house.
We love the Smith/Wallen house. It is comfortable, clean, and has all of the amenities needed for the island. We will be going for years to come.
Thanks. We love having you there. See you next year.
We had such a relaxing and fun vacation at this house. It is comfortable and well stocked. There are some town beaches within walking distance, and there is a beautiful beach (Philbin) that you can buy a weekly pass to go to. The area nearby is scenic and is great for walking, biking and running because of low traffic.
Jim owns the house but lives nearby in the summer. He was very responsive to any questions. We were on the Vineyard because my daughter who is an author was reading at the Vineyard Haven bookstore. Jim and his wife Kathleen even came to the reading!
The house is clean and airy and the grounds are well maintained. There are beautiful views of Menemsha from the decks.
What a paradise!
Thank you for your review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back again.
Wonderful house with great ocean views
A lovely home in a peaceful location with wonderful views. The house was extremely clean, and well stocked. The a/c came in handy a few days, but most of the time we had a great ocean breeze to match the views. A great place to stay.
Jim was also terrific to work with; very helpful and pleasant.
FABULOUS home, beautiful location, gorgeous views
This is a perfect vacation spot. We love Aquinnah and this is perfectly located. Remote and yet accessible to all beaches. the home itself is SO comfortable and spacious and beautiful and invites a wonderful group feeling. The views are fabulous and the feel of the surrounding yard is comfy and we also so so value that it welcomes our dogs, who LOVE the house and surrounding area too! It is a PERFECT vacation home and we feel so lucky to be able to enjoy it year after year!!
And hopefully you will continue to enjoy it for many more years
