About Steve C

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

Steve C purchased this house in 2005

Why Steve C chose Martha's Vineyard

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 1940'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 art, yard, and coffee table books!

  • 5 of 5

This home definitely feels like more of a home than a rental property. Great art (often lacking in rentals), great yard and landscaping, and great coffee table books. It is a really comfortable place to hang out for any length of time, especially after everyone needs a break from being out of the house! It is clear that the owners love the home.

The yard, wow, what an asset! The pictures do not do the yard justice. After years of renting on the Cape, this is the first property that I had serious backyard envy of. Beautiful, mature shrubs and flowers. The deck was also a very comfortable space. Cozy, well set up, comfortable furniture. We appreciated the potted veggies too.

The kitchen is a good size and layout, not updated, but totally what we expected and fine. It has all the needed amenities, plus more. The entire house has a great layout and is extremely functional and comfortable for two families of four (with smaller children). Bathrooms are plentiful, clean, and updated.

An awesome place to stay when visiting Martha's V

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as we were told, beautiful, loaded with amenities from bikes, hot tub, great back yard, a very well stocked kitchen with everything you ever need, We walked to town for Ice Cream many days and nights, and had our morning coffee on the beach.

Awesome location, clean with everything you could

  • 5 of 5

We are always a bit nervous when we rent a vacation home as far as cleanliness, but we soon realized when we got there that this was the real deal and no worries needed! Everything we needed in this beautiful home was as advertised.Two master suites, AC, hot tub,

a garage loaded with all the beach equipment we would need, many bikes....

And then the location being about a mile out of VH and the ice cream shops...

A great week! Thank you!

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!
