Lovely waterfront home with private, sandy beach and mooring on Lagoon Pond
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Wonderful place to stay on Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this wonderful home on Lagoon Pond. Right on the water with its own small beach, this is a great spot for the family: the lagoon is perfect for kayaking, secluded and the water is very calm. Great view of the lagoon, the surrounding area and delightful sunsets to watch from the porch. Located away from the crowds, but with easy access to Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven by bike or car to the north, and to the beaches and quiet areas up island. The owner and caretaker were both readily accessible and very helpful. Highly recommended!

Warm, welcoming, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family immediately felt at home and comfortable. We loved being just steps away from the beach out back. At night, we took in the stars and the water from the inviting deck. We definitely recommend and hope to come back!

Fantastic Martha's Vineyard Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our second year in a row staying in this beautiful home overlooking the lagoon. The place was as stunning and inspiring as we had hoped when we found it on this website. The grounds are well kept, the owners were welcoming and extremely helpful and Tom, the groundskeeper made sure the place was in great shape for our arrival.

Our favorite activity was kayaking across the lagoon in the morning and we would recommend this property to anybody interested in a Vineyard getaway.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good stay and enjoyed the house and grounds. Sadly, due to insurance issues, we are no longer able to provide kayaks for the enjoyment of our guests, but some folks bring their own or rent them once they arrive on the island.

Perfect setting for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Once again we loved staying at Skid and Ann's Lagoon home. We had everything we needed. We created great meals in the kitchen, entertained friends on the deck, and slept like babies with the perfect breeze coming from the Lagoon at night. In the morning, the kids could get up and head out to the private beach, where I could watch them from deck with my coffee and my feet up. When it rained the kids could watch t.v. on the big flat screen while my husband and I planned our day. And man, that view!

The layout was perfect for our family. Downstairs kids bedrooms, bathroom and ping pong table and slider to the outside (with out door shower) meant the kids could entertain themselves and be kids without tramping through the upstairs all the time. The upstairs slider to the deck meant we could eat meals outside and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.

House is clean, well maintained and as advertised. I did need to call the caretaker once about something minor (I forgot to order linens for our vacation--my fault) and he was incredibly responsive and helpful. Nice owners and nice place!

Very comfortable, great view, great location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a very short one week stay in this lovely Oak Bluffs home. The house was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The pictures do not do it justice. The kitchen was very well equipped. We had no problems with anything. Kayaking on lagoon pond was a treat. The beach chairs and pool table were an added bonus. And we loved the outside shower with hot water. Never even took a shower inside.

The little private beach was great. The birds were fun to watch. The crabs, clams, geese, swans, ducks - just can't even name them all. If you are a nature lover, this is a good choice for you.

There was a heat wave with 2 days over 90 degrees, so the upstairs was warm during the day. The downstairs has an air conditioner. But it cooled off at night and we weren't inside much anyway. The beds were comfortable. Lots of pillows and blankets were provided.

With our daughter living just a couple of blocks away, we only moved our car once during the entire stay. She did the driving, but we could walk over to her house in the morning.

The owner and caretaker provided great customer service. We would recommend to a friend and rent again.
