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.

"Huge disappointment."

  • 1 of 5

I arrived Saturday 8/29/15 with my girlfriend at 3:00 in the afternoon. We walked in and our first image was an unmade bed and a pile of wet dirty towels on the bathroom floor. It WAS a unique case in that the landlords were out of town. We called their cell and they were able to contact the cleaning crew and they WERE there within 10 mins. We walked onto the porch to wait while the cleaners did their thing. As we walked out, the porch door fell off. So, needless to say, the beginning of the stay was a bit rocky; not typical vacation experience. Although the ad states the apt is near a shuttle, it was not. We were forced to spend a good portion of money on Uber and Cabs; there was no other form of transportation and we left our bikes at home. I spoke with the landlord and inquired about some sort of adjustment; possibility of a discount on one night, etc. Dirty linens, no toilet paper and dirty towels was just plain unhygienic and not where I ultimately want to put my money. Things happen, I get that. But I find it is most productive when people are able to meet each other halfway. After the inquiry, I was advised to "check out if I please, but I will never find anything cheaper than $XXX on MV." No apology, no financial adjustment, just kurt sarcasm. The next day, we arrive back after a day of shopping. The owners had returned home and were in the driveway. We explained our disappointment with the apt. in a professional manner, as I personally look at this as a business situation. Consciously trying to not sound threatening, I did say that if we were not able to work out some sort of financial adjustment, I would feel it was necessary to post a review. The owner began raising his voice and went on a rant about how this was HIS home and they were coming to the vineyard for 35 yrs. Neither point has to do with customer dissatisfaction. I asked for the security check and wrote him out the full balance for two nights, as I wanted this to be my last interaction with this man. He refused his wife give us the security check, stating "No, I want to see that place before they leave." As 35 and 40 yr old women, we have the respect to leave his apt as it was when we arrived; except we stocked it with toilet paper bc there was no back up supply upon our arrival. Sure, the place was cute, decorated nicely, but if you're going to work with people, it is imperative to remain professional without yelling. Given my experience, I would not recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that your experience did not match your expectations. We pride ourselves in providing a pristine, well-maintained rental property. Unfortunately on the date of your arrival, our cleaners were delayed for an hour. Although we were out of town, we responded immediately to your concern and the cleaners arrived within 10 minutes to clean and provide fresh towels and linens. We have enjoyed only pleasant interactions with our visitors in the past five years that we have been renting and have received only positive reviews. We did provide a schedule in the apartment for the shuttle that runs from town to the beach every 30 minutes and is easily accessed at the end of our street. The wording of the phone call we received did set an unpleasant tone. We have 3 properties that we rent and have willingly made adjustments several times when there has been an appliance malfunction or other issues, but we have never had a demand that unless an adjustment was made , " an unfavorable review would be posted" . We hope that our many satisfied guests' reviews will speak for themselves.
