Cozy cottage, amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this adorable cottage and it wasn't long enough! One large light-filled room houses the bed, living room area, dining area and kitchen under a beamed roof. Everything is comfortable and cozy with the bathroom downstairs. It looks quaint but has all the amenities...a million movie channels, reliable internet, even AC. We hope to return next year!

Spacious 1-room, 2-person cottage, walking distance from South Beach.

  • 5 of 5

This is a second building on the owner's property, and he is friendly and generous in dealing with requests. If you like the open ocean, this is for you. A short walk down the road and a short wade across Chilmark Pond, and you are on a practically deserted beach facing South America. Outdoor seating area is comfortable, with a gas grill and fire pit for cold season visits.

Fantastic Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at Bob's cottage in mid-August. Bob was very welcoming, courteous, and responsive to all of our requests (of which we had very few). Cottage is in very good condition and has access to some wonderful private beaches. A very romantic stay for any couple...

Peaceful, restful spot with private beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared a wonderful respite here on a sweet, breezy, quiet part of the Vineyard, in Chilmark. The quality of light and airiness in this cottage-ey studio aren’t visible in the photos. A perfect place for two. Access to a private gated beach was a hidden treasure -- the beach was expansive and exquisite- inhabited only by neighbors and families who have clearly treasured it for generations. A special treat. Bob, the owner, gave us access to two great kayaks and gliding along Chilmark pond at sunset was dreamy. Fun flea markets and craft fairs close-by and Menemsha sunsets were beautiful while sharing some fresh Katama oysters on the docks. We loved the open air outdoor shower (never once showered indoors!). The full-size fridge and a new gas grill with burner mitigated any issue with minimal kitchen facility. With organic farms, farm markets and fresh fish markets in abundance and nearby, we didn't need much more! The owner was extremely kind and accommodating and respectful of our privacy as he lives in a separate house across the property.

Great location and rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved Bob's rental. We had rented near Vineyard Haven last year and this Chilmark rental was much more relaxing. It's secluded, quiet, and a 8 minute walk to the beach or a short car ride to a private beach. The beach was wide, and lots of room to set up-not many folks there.

Bob provided two kayaks and there was more places to kayak than we wanted to explore just adjacent to the beach on a calm pond about 2 miles or more long.

The studio was clean, well-maintained and for a small issue Bob was prompt in responding. We used the brand new BBQ and the outdoor shower often.

There are at least 5 farmers markets near by. We went to two local restaurants and were delighted with the food, and also drove to Vineyard Haven, 20 minute ride, where there is many more.

We would recommend the studio to any couple wanting to have a relaxing vacation away from crowds.

Simple beach retreat. Accommodating owner.

  • 5 of 5

Charming little guest cottage perfect for single occupancy. Friendly and helpful owner. Great beach access for Lucy Vincent or Squibnocket. Close to State Road restaurant - a great experience to dine on locally grown & produced foods. Perfect location for getting to the Chilmark General Store and Chilmark Tavern.

I would absolutely recommend this to others for a nice easy rental experience.
