A great place for 2

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for 2 people who want to get away. It's a studio so you can't have more than 2 people but it was perfect for us. We didn't use the kitchen much since MV has so many good restaurants to try but it has everything you need and the cutest little refrigerator. The bed was comfy. The owners are super nice. The apartment sits right next to their house in this small cul-de-sac. When we got there after dark, we had hard time finding the place since there was no street light but we walked all the way around the circle/cul-de-sac and we were able to find it eventually. The outside looks just like the picture but the inside looks better than the pictures.

Since MV buses are "flag-down" you can catch the bus anywhere from the main road near the apartment. So I'm not sure why someone was complaining about bus stops being so far. There is a diner called "Right Fork Diner" near the apartment (0.7 mile walk) that's a must-try place in MW.

Overall, it's a great place to stay. We stayed 2 nights but wish we could've stayed longer. I'm not sure if I could go back since we are expecting a child but if we could we would definitely go back and stay here again!

Excellent - yearly return

  • 5 of 5

We feel like this is our place! We love it. My husband and I have rented every year for many years.

The location is quiet and close to what we love. A short bike ride to South Beach and Edgartown. Close enough to walk into Edgartown too. The bus stops at the end of the street and can take you everywhere. The bike path is at the end of the street which provides safe biking, walking, running...

This above the garage studio is beautiful and fun. There is a nice deck, the trees sway in the vineyard breeze, creating the vacation mode.

The studio is so cute, is clean, and has everything you need. The queen bed and love seat are just right for a couple of love birds.

Bob and Helen are great people. They have created a cozy, inviting and relaxing nest.

Please disregard the one bad review.

Bob and Helen are wonderful hosts and ensure guests have everything they need while providing privacy.

We go once or twice a year. And hope to continue to do so.

Darlene and Tom ❤️

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to the Vineyard was for a wedding. There were no available rooms that weekend and then a friend connected us to Bob and Helen. Our stay was awesome and we will definitely return...

Cozy and gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

This was a very last minute booking that I needed for a wedding. The owner was incredibly accommodating and agreed to work out a deal with us since they usually have a two night minimum (while we were only staying for one). Upon arrival there was a personal note on the door written by the owner to help us get into the apartment and to make sure the heat was on since it was a chilly night. The place itself was beautiful and a very spacious well kept studio. I had zero complaints one I walked in. It even had a tv with cable! The following day I went to pay the owners with no issue and they were just as pleasant as expected and allowed us to take our time heading out. Overall a great experience and the only complaint is that I didn't get to stay to enjoy it longer than one night!

Great Rental, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The Key West apartment was wonderful. The owners were extremely friendly and attentive. The apartment was clean and airy with great breezes at night. The location is also ideal, since it is close to Edgartown but also less than a 5 minute drive from South Beach. We have stayed in Martha's Vineyard many times and we will definitely come back to the Key West apartment. I would certainly recommend this rental for any couple looking to stay in or around Edgartown.
