Abutting the State Forest, our three bedroom saltbox is located in a very private area of Dodgers Hole and features very open airy spaces. This is the perfect getaway for a relaxing--leave the worries behind--summer vacation!
The dining and living room areas have cathedral ceilings up through the second floor and the skylights above these areas flood the downstairs with natural light. Exposed beams and hardwood flooring in the living room and bedrooms and ceramic tile flooring in the kitchen and bathrooms adds a special touch to our home. A fully applianced kitchen makes cooking quick and easy. High speed Wifi connectivity is available throughout our home as well as out on our deck. In order to provide you with the complete home entertainment viewing experience we have a 46' LED/LCD HD wall mounted TV and a Blue Ray / DVD player with Netflix WIFI connectivity
We thoroughly enjoyed spending last week at this wonderful home. As soon as you arrive in the Dodger’s Hole neighborhood, you’ll instantly leave all your worldly worries behind. It is woodsy area that has a great neighborhood feel, very clean and well kept. The home is even more spacious and updated than it appears in the photos. It's set back in a small cul-de-sac and feels very private.
The open kitchen was awesome for putting together family lunch for the beach and not being stuck inside a cramped space. Afterall – vacation is for family time.
The great thing about the location is that the home is nice and shady for most of the day, keeping it cool and comfortable. We easily made very quick trips to South Beach (Katama) and Bend-in-the-Road Beach (State Beach). We took day trips to Aquinnah Public Beach and Menemsha, to check out the fishing village, which are both about 20 minutes away by car.
The outdoor shower (which was working just fine when we were there) was excellent for rinsing off the sand, salt and sunscreen. Then relax with a cocktail on the porch, and listen to nature as the sun goes down.
Having the Blueray player to access Netflix and watch movies (JAWS!) was very nice for relaxing after a long day at the beach.
We arrived on a 90 degree day to an extremely stuffy house that had no AC or ceiling fans, and no obvious way to open the skylights. Fans were not sufficient and the house was very slow to cool down. The house is in need of a serious cleaning; very dirty floors and furniture. Master bedroom downstairs had baggies with random pills in it - no sheets, as promised in the info packet. If the house is really being cleaned on a weekly basis, the owners should consider finding a new cleaner. Dryer was not working. Outdoor shower was not working. Messages to the owner were not returned. We cut our trip short because the house was not enjoyable.
We enjoyed staying in this great rental! It was perfect for our 3 kids! Close to everything but away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Only thing we would change would be access to the outdoor shower to rinse off quickly after the beach. It was not working and is not enclosed but would be fine for a quick rinse off when it is functioning again! Overall a great little place for a small family!
I have been renting this wonderful home for many years. When I return, it feels like I am coming back to my own special place. This tidy home has everything you need for a super MV vacation. What is really great is the privacy you feel in the home and on its beautiful deck. The house sits on wedge of land that virtually masks all of the neighbors--you get the feeling of an up-island rental but without the inconvenience of a dry town with no restaurants. Do not hesitate if you are considering this house. Be advised--there is no bathtub, but the shower has a seat. The wi-fi is superb (what a change on the Vineyard from only a few years back), and the HD tv is an unexpected nice surprise.
This home fit the needs of our family of 4 just fine. There was adequate space and the accommodations were as stated in the description. The setting is incredibly quiet, peaceful, and private, yet close to everything. The only thing not as "advertised" was the availability of laundry on-site. We arrived to find a note from a previous renter stating the dryer was not functioning and the owner was aware and working on the issue. As it turned out, neither the washer nor the dryer was working properly, which meant we had to use the full-service laundromat at the airport mid-week. It was a minor inconvenience and only set us back $40, $25 of which the owner was kind enough to reimburse along with the return of our security deposit. I only wish we had known about the laundry situation ahead of time as I would have packed differently to avoid the whole laundromat scene, but it ended up being such a small thing (and nice to take a break from laundry for a week!). As another reviewer noted, the outside shower is not enclosed, but it works well for rinsing off sand, and my little ones showered out there no problem :). Make this house your home base for days in the sun at South Beach and evenings strolling the quaint streets of Edgardtown!
We had a fantastic time at thiswonderful home. The location was great, perfect for our small family and we had an absolute blast touring the island and spending a lot of time on the beach. Super easy to take back roads to South Beach to avoid the traffic, close to Edgartown Center, beaches, grocery stores and really easy to get to the main roads to get elsewhere on the island. Hope to be back again!
Enjoy spectacular beaches, biking, rollerblading, hiking, fishing and sailing on the Island of Martha's Vineyard. Access to all these activities is only minutes from our home. Or just relax at our home. Just imagine...while having morning coffee on our 400 square foot deck you listen to the early morning birds and catch an occasional glimpse of a deer running through the State Forest. After a relaxing breakfast on the deck you load up the car and head for one of the many beautiful Vineyard beaches located nearby. At the end of the day you return to our home and wash the salt and sand off using our outside hot/cold water shower. You then relax on our deck's patio furniture afterwards and then enjoy an evening meal cooked on our barbecue.
