About steven certilman

Just two hard working folks from Connecticut who like to de-stress!

steven certilman purchased this house in 2005

Why steven certilman chose Tisbury

We rented for nearly twenty years before finally deciding to make a bigger commitment to Island life. Allowing others to share our home helps make that commitment possible. During our rental years we almost always traveled with another couple and the tension over "who gets the master suite" was something we knew everyone want s to avoid so one of our criteria as buyers was a home with a double master suite arrangement. Whether it's two couples or two families, everyone loves it!

What makes this house unique

The short walk to Grove Avenue beach for a glass (plastic please!) of wine and the relaxing sunset view. Large fenced in yard for young kids. Beautiful garden with home grown veggies.

1 block walk to Grove Avenue beach, a quiet neighborhood beach. It is a 1 mile walk or bike ride to town, even shorter to the West Chop lighthouse. The eat-in kitchen is fitted out with all the conveniences of home. Our spacious 1930's Habitant dining room table and benches seats eight to ten. There is a large living room with a fireplace and a separate family room with flat panel TV and fireplace. The rear deck is accessed through sliders off the family room. The 340 sq ft mahogany deck has a permanent gas grill (no tank re-fills), a glass-top wrought-iron table and chairs and a teak picnic table with benches. There are 4 teak lounges with cushions in the yard. This is a great place to sit and enjoy the clear sky and evening air. The back yard is large, flat, open, private and fenced-in - plenty of room for your family to enjoy your favorite fun and activities. Eclectic audio/video library. Apple TV in den, I-Pod hookup available for stereo.

Great vacation home in Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

Great property that is treated like a home rather than a rental property. Bathrooms are very modern. Everything was very clean. The owner was very helpful with all of our questions since this was our first time on MV. Very spacious home. that allowed everyone to have quiet time. Backyard is truly beautiful. Thank you for a wonderful week.

I thought the home was great and the bikes were awesome to have

  • 4 of 5

The bedrooms were very nice and the bathrooms are fantastic. This house has the best yard I have experienced on the island in 12 years.

I do recommend getting new beach chairs and consider providing linens and towels. The living room furniture is dated. I suspect it is on the list to be replaced soon.

The house was spacious and clean. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone.

Wonderful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have spent summers on the Vineyard for the last 30+ years and this home is truly a gem. On a quite street out on West Chop close to the water and an easy ride into town. Home is well maintained and has a great fenced in back yard for the kids to play. Owner and caretaker were very responsive with any questions we had. Would certainly stay here again.

Great house for a family

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It's in a quiet neighborhood with an amazing deck and huge backyard. Lots of space to stretch out and relax. Plenty of room inside as well. Clean bathrooms, comfy beds and tons of lounging space to put your feet up and read a book.

We loved our week here and wished we had booked for 2 weeks!

Spacious, updated & comfy home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very spacious and accommodated eight of us quite easily! The back yard area was wonderful, including a hot tub and luscious landscape. We utilized the bikes and other beach equipment that were provided too. I loved the location in Vineyard Haven. It was quiet, yet easily accessible to downtown VH & the larger surrounding towns. Overall the property and the owner were very accommodating! I would highly recommend this property.

Grove Avenue Beach

Our spacious and cheery island home is located just off Main Street by the water in West Chop, a quiet residential area 1 block from the beach and midway between the West Chop Lighthouse and commercial Main Street. There are many beautiful road and nature walks and bike rides in the area. The house features a quiet and private fenced-in rear yard.

There is lots to do a short drive from home. Within a 15 minute drive you can visit Oak Bluffs or Edgartown, take the ferry to Chappaquiddick, swim or sun at Long Point Beach, State Beach, South Beach, walk around (or dig for clams in) Lake Tashmoo, go back in time to the quiet, four-acre fishing hole known as Seth's Pond, rent or charter a boat, take a sailing cruise at sunset, enjoy a meal at countless restaurants, make bead jewelry in VH, hike or mountain bike in the state forest, explore antique shops and art galleries, or enjoy a children's park with your kids, just to name a few ideas. Reserve by 5/1/14 and we have transferable ferry tickets!

Other Activities: sit on the bench near the lighthouse and watch the sun set.

Golf: Mink Meadows (public , 9 holes) is 1 mile away. Farm Neck in Oak Bluffs (10 minutes) is challenging and beautiful. Other public 18-hole courses are available on island.

All four bathrooms have been fully renovated over the winter months and look great!
