Great place!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful house with great ocean views

  • 5 of 5

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.

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!!
