Guestbook comments from the owner

Mark & Tess,

What a wonderful week we've had at 150 Skiffs Lane! It was the perfect house for our family! Our grandson runs x-country and it was great to have the bike trail so close so that he could run.

Thanks so much!

Excellent up-island property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home in the middle of MV. We ate on the large outside table most nights. Spacious and very quiet at night. Bike down the street to the major island bike paths. West Tisbury address gets you beach access to Lambert's Cove beach. Awesome! We will be back next summer.

Caveats: 1) No A/C. But even in August heat air flow was great so not needed; 2) Property is close to airport so you'll hear planes from time to time.

A little gem

  • 5 of 5

This is a little gem of a house with such a welcoming feel. Tucked away in a private setting but a short drive to all the best MV has to offer.

The house is so well stocked for dining in and all one needs for a day at the beach. The homeowners have thought of everything. Cozy, clean and comfortable. Felt right at home.

Thank you Mark and Tess.

Lovely retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay in this cozy home. It's off the beaten path but yet so close to everything. Great area for biking and walking. The deck was our favorite spot for morning coffee and dinners on the grill. And no mosquitos was a bonus! We loved watching the swaying oak branches from the master bedroom during the full moon nights. The house was spacious and very clean, and the kitchen was stocked with everything you need. We enjoyed the outdoor shower!

Mark and Tess returned emails very quickly and returned our security deposit promptly. We had the pleasure of meeting them upon our arrival. They are lovely people. The caretakers Rusty and Sarah left a box of fresh produce on the porch which was so appreciated!

Thank you Mark and Tess for sharing your island home with us! We hope to return!

Quiet hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for a quiet relaxing time, all the attractions of MV are within a short drive too. Everyone enjoyed the beaches and ate way too much seafood, my personal highlight was grilling on the deck.

All the logicstics of deposits, access etc... were handled promptly and trouble free.

I would happily stay there again.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year that my family rented this lovely house in West Tisbury and will certainly not be our last! The house was very clean upon arrival and it was a nice surprise to see the owners added a gas grill to join the charcoal grill on the large deck. This year we took advantage of the bicycles available in the shed and discovered the beautiful bike paths right down the street. There is also a softball/baseball field down the street as well that we hope to utilize in the future.

If you are looking for a secluded, private home on the beautiful side of the island this home is just perfect. It is close enough to the grocery store Cronig's and to the beautiful beaches of Menemsha and Aquinnah while still maintaining a private environment. The outdoor shower is a sure plus as well! The owners Mark & Tess are great and very responsive. We have not experienced any problems in the 3 years we have rented and the security deposit is always returned promptly. We know this will be a family tradition for years to come! Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us!
