About Jackie Ashe

We inherited this home from our parents who built it in 1975. They built as their dream retirement home and lived in it year round for many years.

Jackie Ashe purchased this house in 1975

Why Jackie Ashe chose Edgartown Area

The Kitts Field Circle location is ideal. It is very private, quiet, close to town, beaches, bike paths, tennis,town playground and Morning Glory Farm.

What makes this house unique

While vacationing, you will really enjoy the privacy of our location and deck and its proximity to town. No other homes are visible from the deck. The large outdoor shower is wonderful and refreshing after a day at the beach.

Great stay in MV!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week on the Vineyard. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The location was great and it was a short car ride to South Beach or into Edgartown. We enjoyed biking to Morning Glory Farm which is very close, and through Katama around the beach area. The outdoor shower was fantastic after a beach day, a well as to hang on the porch. Jackie was fabulous to work with and very flexible and accomodating to what our family needed. Great place to stay!

Comfortable retreat in Edgartown

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this lovely home with my husband and two children during the week of July 4th. The owner was attentive, responsive and detail oriented; communication with her was a breeze. The home is in a pleasant, quiet neighborhood in Edgartown. While it is walking distance to town, it's rather a long walk, so we did occasionally drive. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would certainly come back again - the home was stocked with essential amenities and comfortable beds. The loft area, while fun for children, is open to the downstairs lights and noise, so children who need to go to bed early are better suited to the downstairs bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input . Our home is located about 1.25 miles to down town Edgartown. For toddlers, this might be too far to walk but, for the average person it is a lovely walk or bike ride. The bedroom upstairs is an open loft. We hope to have you back for a future vacation.

Martha's Vineyard rental

  • 5 of 5

First of all the owner of this Edgartown rental is wonderful to work with. She promptly answered every email and gave us great suggestions for our trip.

The house is in a nice area of Edgartown, and we biked every day into town. Several days we parked the biked near the bus pick-up and off we went for the day. Visiting Oak Bluffs two days, Vineyard Haven one day, and Aquinnah another day. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would rent this house again.

A wonderful week at the Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a wonderful week at a very charming house at the vineyard. This house was located within walking distance from the town of Edgartown, which we walked and jogged to daily. The neighborhood was quiet and the house was clean and nicely furnished. Our family enjoyed the outdoor shower and games on the private back deck! The beds were comfortable and the washer and dryer made packing very easy. I would definitely return to this house again and recommend this house for anyone wanting to be in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to the beaches and town.

A magical week on the Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a perfect week in this house on Martha’s Vineyard. We chose the house because it was near Edgartown, was available during the last week of the low season, and seemed tasteful and quiet. It was all those things and more – convenient to town and beaches, clean, well-equipped, nicely furnished, peaceful, with a lovely deck facing the woods. There was also a spacious outdoor shower, beach chairs, a reliable WiFi connection, and an airy room on the second floor with a number of beds that would be perfect for children or a young family.

The owner, Jackie, was prompt, helpful and friendly in all our communications. She answered all our queries ahead of time and we knew that we only had to call if we had any problems or questions along the way.

The house is in a wonderful spot for biking, walking and exploring. Although there’s a very good bus system that runs between all the towns on the island, we brought our car and bikes with us so were able to get around on our own. We biked into Edgartown frequently and also to South Beach at the end of Katama Road; also from Edgartown along Beach Road to Oak Bluffs, bike path all the way with splendid views. The first beach you pass as you head north out of Edgartown is a perfect spot for watching the sun go down, also a popular place for evening fishing. We loved Chappaquiddick and took our bikes over on the ferry twice - we loved the Japanese Gardens as well as the Cape Pogue Nature Preserve at the end of Dyke Road.

I would strongly suggest a day (or more) Up Island. The cliffs at Gay Head (Aquinnah) are a must (although I imagine they’re very busy during high season), the village of Menemsha is exquisite, and the roads and views around Chilmark and West Tisbury are lovely.

South Beach at Long Point (off the Edgartown-West Tisbury Road) is gorgeous and we could barely tear ourselves away. Although we got used to biking on sandy roads, this would be a long trek without a car, one of the things that makes it so special - a long, quiet beach abutting a bird refuge with access to numerous walking trails. Stunning!

What struck us about Martha’s Vineyard is how varied it is, wild ocean next to quiet, inland ponds; farmland and meadows; woodlands and cliffs; crisp, white New England towns; lighthouses galore; and a fishing village that seems lost in time. It is hard to believe that an island can be so many different things. We explored every day and yet can't wait to return and see more.

Awesome House for the week!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time on Martha's Vineyard and our 1st with our kids 11 and 14 years old. We usually stay in hotels but figured renting a house for the week would be better, it would give us some much needed quality time and privacy with also had liked being close to all the action. We found that with Jackie's house we got it. The house was a great location close to Edgartown and South Beach. we would Bike all around the local area. The weather was perfect we didn't even need the air conditioners at all. The Outside Shower was another huge bonus. Jackie was also great with giving us recommendations for restaurants and activities. Jackie was also great with quick response to any questions or concerns we had as well. When we come back will definitely want to stay there again.
