About Jeff

This section wants me to say something about myself. Truth is this is not about me, or my family but it is about you!

We believe we have created the rental experience on Martha's Vineyard that works for you. Clean, comfortable, functional and not your ordinary rental. This vacation home is for you, your family and if you so choose your dog.

Why Jeff chose Edgartown Area

The Cottage is perfectly situated. Just far away from the hustle, bustle and noise that downtown Edgartown town offers but is within walking distance. Located down Pennywise path we are a short walk or a short bike ride into town. We constantly update and upgrade The Cottage adding some new feature every year and want this property to be as comfortable for you as it was for us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There is something to be said for an outdoor shower when you're on the Vineyard. I know to some it's not a big deal but if you're from the area and you grew up with your parents shoving you into the outdoor shower from a long sandy day at the beach, then you know what I mean.

I feel it's up to me to carry on the tradition with my children and not having a home outdoor shower that's the one thing my kids have been lacking. This outdoor shower feels great and is tucked away around the side of the cottage.

We loved the feel of the pine floors, the open concept kitchen as it flows into the living room out even further to the outdoor porch. Not an overly large cottage but perfect for our needs along with being, like other reviews stated, clean and attention paid to details. Close to town yet jussst far enough away from the hustle and bustle and we walked to dairy queen at least three times for the week.

This was our first booking at the cottage and I assure you it will not be our last.

Clean, Comfortable, Updated Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Every review written here is right on and echoes all my sentiments. The photos on this site are accurate and the amenities are exactly as described. Although we went out to dinner a lot, cooking in the kitchen was a joy, and having use of a gas grill was great (as opposed to charcoal grills which you so often find at vacation rentals). Jeff and Jynell were really attentive, helpful and approachable, and that was really such a nice touch. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The cottage is really very nicely decorated and updated. The furnishings are comfortable and a nice quality - not an odd mix of yard sale junk or "antiques" like I've seen in other rentals. Having rented summer vacation cottages for several years now, I have grown tired of lugging sheets and towels and making beds as soon as the vacation started. The owners understand how that can be such a hassle and have everything clean, in good order, beds made, welcome gift on the counter when you arrive. It's like going to a hotel! The central a/c is a nice amenity as it can get quite hot there in the summer months.

This cottage is in the woods but a short walk down the dirt road brings you to several convenient shops. Our family took peaceful early morning walks to the close-by donut shop and specialty market for coffee and breakfast goodies (about 10-15 minute walk). It's an short drive down Main Street to the waterfront and the restaurants and shops, although the road can get congested in the early evening and parking can be a challenge, but we always managed. This location was very convenient to State Beach, with its calm waters, and also an easy drive to Oak Bluffs. We traveled up Island a couple of times for a more rustic experience, and that was an easy drive from the cottage. The location is really ideal if you don't want to be in a bustling area but still want to be in a centrally located spot.

This is the first cottage my husband and I have stayed at where we felt our money was well-spent, and we all hope to return this summer.

3 C's (Clean, Comfortable and Close)

  • 5 of 5

We are returning for our 3rd season and every year it gets better.

The cottage is close to Edgartowntown yet far enough away from the noise, the hustle and bustle that our family doesn't like. It's a short drive to the beach, we go to both state beach where we ride our bikes or sometimes we drive to south beach. It's a perfect morning walk into town, about a 15 minute walk for coffee and breakfast and then a relaxing walk back home to "our cottage".

The cottage is clean and has all the amenities that we require with an additional surprise every year. Last year an outdoor shower was added, the year before was a margaritville machine. We use the grill every now and then but dining out close to town is what we save all year round for and Edgartown has some of the best restaurants.

Comfort is the word we require the most. We are sometimes creatures of comfort and the Cottage allows us just that, comfortable surroundings in a quiet, clean and well kept cottage with comfortable couches, televisions to watch, central air conditioning to keep cool during the hot week and our family dog close by.

We look forward to our week every year and love the cottage the owners have created. We've already booked for this summer.

The kids love the Wii games too.

Cottage comfort on the Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed on the Vineyard many times before and have rented from some adequate places and some not so adequate places. So you tend to not know what to expect when you set foot in the location, the house or even know what to expect when dealing with the people that rent it to you. It can sometimes be a crap shoot.

The events that lead me to renting the Edgartown Cottage was simple. I had standards which required a nice clean close a place close enough to town yet one to give me some privacy.

I succeeded with renting this location. The cottage had a great kitchen decent back porch with a grill and a perfect yard for doing whatever the kids wanted to do. Baths, downstairs rumpus room and an upstairs loft where I won every game of Wii tennis we played. The cottage was NOT misrepresented in anyway and very much worth the money we paid. There is something to be said for satisfaction and my wife and I are not antique or dollies lovers and were very satisfied to see comfortable sofa, chairs and beds with no antique things around the cottage. It's a walk to town, I'd say about 20 minutes right down in the heart of Edgartown and a shorter ride by car or bike to the beach where there are great bike trails.

the restaurants we did came on the recommendation of the owners and they made reservations for us. One is a little hidden gem that we never would have found if they had not suggested it to us.

I have no problem with stating the problems with the cottage, ooops, we didn't have any. That makes that easy. I would go back and most likely will this summer.

Cute Cottage

  • 5 of 5

If you are visitors of the island you know how tough it can be sometimes to find that special place where everything just comes together.

We are repeat guests at the Edgartown Cottage and did so after we met Jeff and Jynell at the Crocker House Inn, a bed and breakfast that they own in the neighboring town of Vineyard Haven. They have managed to re create a great comfortable setting at both locations. Close to town, comfortable, clean, private yet not secluded.

We'll be back yet again.

sometimes you just need to recharge for a few days and this is exactly what my husband and I did over the Valentines Weekend.

The property owner was responsive and timely so I didn't have to wonder about anything. I spoke to Jynell and Jeff Both and they were honest in telling me weather conditions and the Cottages location. It's about a 10 to 20 minute walk depending on where you are going in Edgartown but what a perfect relaxing walk it was to town. Close but far enough away so as not to hear traffic or see anyone.

The Cottage was clean, the stove was a dream to cook dinner on and the marble counter top was a cool addition to a cooks kitchen. We decided to rent for a week in the summer in August because it's something we were comfortable in. No antiques which was refreshing. It didn't appear that this place was stuffed with "extra people's yard sale junk". It was simple yet elegant with a nice fluffy couch to lounge on. King size bed with a small walk out deck that we lasted about 10 minutes outside watching and looking for deer (it was chilly out).

Went to the Wharf for lunch which was scrumptious. Offshore ale was wonderful for dinner and beer and even brought a growler back home which we left with Jeff as he promised to refill it for our August stay.
