We wanted a place on this very familiar island that would provide the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the down-island towns, and we found it here. This beautifully appointed home was perfect! I love to cook and the kitchen is by far one of the more well-stocked ones of my experience. And, there is a dishwasher; very rare! It is an exceptionally comfortable, and immaculate home surrounded by welcoming oak woods; exactly the "retreat" we sought for this special return to the island we love so dearly. The houses nearby do not impinge on the experience of being in the woods. A special positive, if you kayak or canoe, is the Sepiessa preserve nearby and within walking distance of the home. A wonderful hiking trail, canoe and small boat launch are available there as is parking. Another great walk can be found to Short Cove even closer to the house! The views of the Tisbury Great Pond are spectacular at the end of both trails...truly an awe inspiring sight! It is our great hope to return again same time next year and for years to come...we found "our place" on the Vineyard once more! Thank you for sharing your home with us!!
Great vacation house for families!
My husband and I chose this rental for its proximity to West Tisbury attractions like Lamberts Cove beach and Alley's General store. We brought our 3 year old daughter and 1 month old son and it was the perfect place for us. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for grilling some of our dinners at the house as well as prepping meals for beach and park picnics. The screened porch was lovely have for late afternoons after the beach. The house had a small den downstairs in addition to the two bedrooms upstairs and it was perfect for me to get up in the middle of the night with our newborn so as not to wake my 3 year old. my daughter also used that room to play and watch a move one evening while we made dinner. Most mornings my husband got up with her to go and grab coffee and or breakfast at nearby Alleys and 7a market in Wedt Tisbury. There is also a great playground and beautiful library with children's room right in the WT town center that are perfect if you need a break from the beach. The house is on a paved road in West Tisbury which is great because you can easily bike in and out which is not always the case with other rentals. The house is in a wooded area which provides a nice shady break from the sun. Elaine was great to rent from and we will certainly contact her again in the future!
Great house, could not have been more comfortable. Our family of 4 had plenty of room; we could easily have shared it with another couple. The house is spacious and well appointed. We loved the outdoor shower, and the wild blueberries growing on the property. The location is wonderful as well - Sepiessa, the land bank property down the street, is a hidden gem. We did not use the outdoor deck - it is small and not as inviting as we would have hoped.
exceptional vacation home!
We shared this lovely saltbox w/ my daughter, son in law, and two toddler grandkids.
the house was very user- friendly. it was spacious, clean, comfortable and came with all
the amenities for a vacation house, home away from home. We especially enjoyed the screened-in porch with rocking chairs for my toddlers and the deck for all of us.
When it rained (only once in 10 days) we had a specious living room/dining room/kitchen/screened in porch to help the children find games and toys to enjoy.
I would recommend this home to all my friends and family to enjoy martha's vineyard!
The property is located in West Tisbury, a rural 'up island' community on the island of Martha's Vineyard. In contrast to the bustle of the down island towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown, West Tisbury is a rural village with a quaint General Store at its center. There are weekly farmer's market and artisans fairs. Close by are the bike path and state forest. There are a number of different beaches available. Lambert's Cove beach is a pleasant bay beach popular with families while the Trustees of the Reservation Beach is a surf beach.
