Why Owner chose Katama
We work hard and have a busy, active life with our three children. Our first vacation on Martha's Vineyard stunned us with how relaxing and peaceful it was, really allowing us to kick back, but never be bored. Also, the miles of safe bike paths, and sidewalks made it easy to let our kids ride their bikes and run over to friends' houses without getting into the car - - some much needed, old fashioned freedom which we all loved. We had to own a piece of that for ourselves and we were delighted to find this house, a short stroll from the beach, in our favorite neighborhood.

What a wonderful way to experience Martha's Vineyard. A beautifully decorated home with a spacious open floor plan for group gatherings and, yet, a feeling of quiet and privacy in the sleeping areas. We enjoyed cooking meals in the fabulous kitchen and dining at the various places in the house; outdoors on the private deck, at the wonderful dining room table, or on stools in the kitchen conversing with the cook! The house is perfectly located on the island with easy access to shopping and the beach. I returned from my week's vacation refreshed and nourished by the beauty of Martha's Vineyard and the comforts of a wonderful home. Thank you.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your time here on the island! We bought the house because of its ability to "refresh and nourish" as you say, and it is a joy for us to share this with our guests.

We just returned from a delightful week at Martha's Vinyard. We loved our accomodations for their cheery, soothing atmosphere-just what we needed and we felt it the moment we opened the door. The location was private on its 1.5 acre lot with little visibility of the neighbors, while at the same time being incredibly convenient to everything we wanted to do. I personally took long runs in the morning with the beach easily accessed and quiet roads to and from. Our days were filled with biking, and short adventures into the nearby towns and shopping areas. Everything was easy to reach, and our returns were always filled with sighs as we entered the house. The welcoming colors, comfortable open space of the living, dining and kitchen area were absolutely perfect for a relaxed, informal, companionable getaway.
Thank you very much for staying at our home. We are thrilled that you enjoyed it, and we hope that you can come back again in the future.
Have a wonderful summer,
Geralyn & Scott
Famous for rolling dunes and beautiful shingled houses, the Cape Cod area is a national treasure, full of outdoor activities and family attractions. Located just 7 miles or a 45 minute ferry ride off of Cape Cod on the Massachusetts coast is the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Far less developed than Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard is a pleasant escape from the faster pace of the mainland, a sanctuary where you can leave stress behind.
For over 150 years, Martha’s Vineyard has been a vacation destination. Renowned for its vast variety of beaches, harbors, and bays; stunning nature preserves, vistas and historic sights; and plentiful recreational, culinary, and cultural opportunities. A visit to Martha’s Vineyard is an experience to be savored.
Martha’s Vineyard has miles of pristine beaches, unspoiled open space, and historic seaside towns with charming shops, down to earth people and no glitz. There are no chain stores here. Old fashioned main streets with “real” bookstores and coffee shops are what you find. Penny candy stores and fudge shops. Bait shops where the fishermen will teach you and your kids how to fish.
There are plenty of public, walk-on, free/almost free parking beaches. Oak Bluffs is a mix of shiny game arcades, carousels, and nightlife AND a thriving arts community, with an impressive history. Edgartown and Vineyard Haven are chock full of shopping, dining, and sight seeing nestled within charming old New England seafaring towns. The views at the Aquinnah Cliffs are stunning, and the celebrities are well hidden away from it all in Chilmark. Of course our favorite area is Katama - - wild dunes, nature preserves, flat plains for biking and running - - a remote beach area on the Atlantic Ocean, just 3 miles from “everything” in Edgartown, and just across the bay from the even more remote beaches and fishing of Chappaquiddick Island.
Miles of safe bike paths mean you can let your kids can ride their bikes and explore on their own, without “mom’s taxi”. Older kids can hop the bus in the evening to go to the movies or have an ice cream in town.
Peak season is July and August for the best beach weather. But Spring (April-June) and Fall (September-October) are lovely and less crowded, making for three full and diverse seasons of activities. Martha’s Vineyard is a very special experience, a magical place where you will make memories that will last a lifetime.
