West Tisbury House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Max’s Couloir is a 1940’s style shingle beach cottage sited on a secluded 1½ acre lot. This quiet neighborhood is just off the bike path on the way to beautiful Long Point Beach. An open living/dining/kitchen area with wood floors and exposed ceiling is surrounded by windows and a sliding French door to the South facing deck.

The large second floor master suite has its own bathroom and deck, ideal for catching the beautiful sunrise or lounging after a day at the beach. The house has plenty of windows to catch the light and gentle winds. The house is well appointed with cozy period furnishings and all the comforts you expect in a newer home. Now eight years along, the landscaping has taken hold and the property is absolutely beautiful!

About Jon Kelly

I've been coming to the Vineyard since 1987.

Jon Kelly purchased this house in 2000

Why Jon Kelly chose Martha's Vineyard

This is a wonderful house, more my home than a vacation rental. Most of my guests are families that have been coming for years. It's the kind of place where you can kick back, put your feet on the coffee table and relax.

Perfect place to unplug and re-charge

  • 5 of 5

Max's Couloir is just perfect. We had 4 young children staying with us and the house was roomy and cozy. Our mandate for this vacation was to unplug and relax. Go to the beach. Catch a sunset. Eat seafood. We did just that and this home played a central role. The kids ran around outside, chased bunnies and played board games while the adults relaxed on the deck - reading, talking and grilling.

The house has everything you could possibly need. It was simple and comfortable. Long Beach is just down the road and everyone enjoyed the rugged journey down the dirt road to get there. Because of its central location, we saw much more of the island than ever before.

It was just what my team needed and I hope we have the pleasure of staying there again.

amazing west tisbury house!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy from the second we walked into the house. The house was clean,well stocked and just felt like a relaxing , homey house. We loved sitting outside on the deck being in the woods. It was so quiet and relaxing. The house was in such a great location, close enough to beaches,stores and dining. We even hiked down to to Long Point beach one morning. Loved being in such a quiet area. My family left feeling so happy and on the way home, we all discussed returning next summer to same house same week!!!

overjoyed vacationer

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough great things about this house. We spent a week in August and enjoyed every moment in this house. The house is clean, comfortable and well stocked with cooking needs (pots, pans, dishes, etc)and beach needs(comfortable chairs, unbrellas and coolers).

We often ate our meals outside on the deck and relaxed in the comfortable Adirondack chairs.

We went to the nearby ocean beach/pond almost daily so joined the land trustee organization for Long Point Beach for the week. It was definitely worth it and we paddle boarded and or kayaked daily.

We have rented houses on the Cape and MV for over 10 years. This was the nicest, most obviously loved home we have rented. it is clearly a home that matters to the owner and not just a source of income. The owner, Jon, is very responsive and kind.

The only negative I can say is that I did not have more time here.

Memorable vacation in a impeccable home

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was nothing less than perfect and the home was the same way. It was away from the busy main road but close enough to Edgartown and Oak Bluffs that shopping, dining and food was not a far distance. The home has such character and a beautiful story to its name and it being built; there's very few houses nowadays that have as much heart put into it as this one. The location, the very responsive and kind owner, and the story behind how this house became a home is more than enough reason to want to return again soon.

Great house centrally located on Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, especially the airy upstairs master with its own bathroom and sundeck. And we loved the outdoor shower. The house is centrally located on the vineyard, but in a quiet setting. It has all the amenities you could want, including dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. It was immaculate when we checked in. Great experience! This was our first time on Martha's Vineyard and Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven and Edgartown can be a little overwhelming with traffic and crowds, but it was great to return home to peace and quiet.

We went to Long Point Beach and also Lambert's Cove beach (you need to get a sticker). Also went to Beach Plum restaurant which is in a beautiful setting in Menemsha. Next time we will bring bikes and use bike paths, because we had to drive everywhere and there was a ton of traffic. I would definitely rent again, the house is lovely.
