I loved staying at this house! I was a short ride to wonderful. Philbin Beach and a short walk to Lobsterville beach. The house itself was clean, spacious and had plenty of room. We enjoyed many beach walks and nightly sunsets at West Basin Beach. Staying in Aquinnah you definitely feel like you are a world away from the rest of the island. I loved Aquinnah and I loved this house:)

Great vacation home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation home. Great design for a fairly sizable group of friends and family. Beautiful views, very close to some of the best fishing on the island at Dogfish bar, as well as a very private, sandy beach for us and the kids. Loved that we were on a more secluded area of the island, only a pretty short and scenic drive to Edgartown and right around the corner from the Gayhead cliffs. Easy landlords. Would reccommend this house very highly. Hope to visit there again.

Ahhhh - Aquinnah!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this great house without complaint! It was clean, spacious, well-equipped and casual, with more than enough space for our two families (8 total). Wonderful nearby private ocean beach access, walk to the sound side beach. Excellent spot for a totally relaxing family vacation. This is the quiet end of the island, so if you're looking for a lot of activity/action/nightlife, this might not be the place for you. For us, the slow pace is perfect. We'd definitely go to this house again, and recommend it to others.
