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 Vineyard Haven
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.

Great vacation home in Martha's Vineyard
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.
Glad you had a great time! Come again!!
Great house for a family
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!
Thanks for the kind words. If it's two weeks you want, you know where to find us!
Spacious, updated & comfy home!
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.
Great art, yard, and coffee table books!
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
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
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!
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!
