Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house - near bike path, beaches (Lucy Vincent was best - accessible in the off-season), was perfect for our weekend and Florida guests - even had a few meals on the porch. As usual we loved our stay.

Perfect house for two active tweenagers & their grandparents

  • 5 of 5

My 13 y.o. grandson announced "this house is awesome" after a quick trip to every room and a walk outside. Later, he and my 11 y.o granddaughter would, usually after several hours of kayaking or being at the beach or pool, still have energy for the ping-pong table for 1-1.5 hours. My first loves were the 2 story LR/DR, the wide board floors, comfy LR chairs, and the well supplied kitchen. Later, I was impressed with how organized everything was, to wit, I never had to ask the owners a question about where to find something or how to make it work. The temps were warm outside during our stay but the house's beautiful cross breezes kept us comfortable. Very peaceful environment. My husband reads and is not into TV so he was very happy that the wireless headsets enabled us to sit in the same room at night while I watched netflix shows. I was impressed that the kids, who did have tablets with them as the house has wifi, never asked to watch the large screen TV as they could choose to get games on their tablets or play foosball, darts, or ping-pong. I enjoyed doing my water aerobics routine at the pool. Everything was easy at this house. Having the ferry tix included made it feel like an all inclusive vacation. We enjoyed Lambert's Cove Beach, Audubon's Marine Discovery Tour and their kayak tour, visiting the Trustees' Farm Institute and their Chappy lighthouse tour and kayak tour.

Relaxing, comfortable family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need, and Will was very helpful answering questions -- we had lots, since it was our first time on MV! The property is in a very quiet area next to conservation land which has walking and biking trails. Lamberts Cove Beach is a few miles away and is very beautiful. The water was warm enough in August for an enjoyable swim. It's just a short drive to Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven to shop or eat out. At night it was delightful to eat by candlelight on the screened-in porch, listening to the crickets and inhaling the sweet smell of the woods.

Another great week in a great house.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this fantastic summer/vacation home. We liked it so much last year that we didn't bother looking at any other properties. The house is centrally located on the island making it easy to get to beaches and other towns. It is a classic summer set up, but the feeling of ease and relaxation that permeates the house must be felt. The screened-in porch and deck/backyard make for a perfect place to relax at anytime of the day. The washer-dryer made traveling to the island so much easier, and there is every kitchen product you might need. Our kids loved the pool across the street as they spent a few afternoons in it during our stay. Lastly, the owners are fantastic, address and issues immediately, and are a large part of why we love the house so much. If you want a truly relaxing and enjoyable Vineyard experience, rent this house.

Stress free location for a wonderful MV vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family (2+3 kids) passed a fantastic July 4th week at his wonderful house. Rarely have we rented anywhere that was so thoroughly equipped. We brought along the usual basics that you think you will need and never even had to unpack them! The kitchen is especially well stocked down to washing up products, bags etc.

The house was spotless, beautiful secluded location with tennis courts and pool but centrally placed to make any day trip easy.

Suffice to say, a wonderful, stress free vacation thanks to the thoughtful planning of the house owners.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything and then some! We loved our stay at this exceptionally well-equiped home. The home is centrally located on Martha's Vineyard, making it convenient to all locations on the island. We enjoyed our access to Lambert's Cove, which turned out to be our favorite beach. Access to the pool right across the street was fantastic, and we also enjoyed the tennis courts. The home was clean and very well-maintained and organized. We loved grilling out and using the deck. And, the outdoor shower was perfect for rinsing off the sandy children, without tracking into the house. This will definitely be the house we rent anytime we are on the Vineyard.

Perfect Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 2 of our adult children spent a wonderful week at this very lovely and comfortable home. The kitchen has everything and anything you might need. Our chef son made some memorable dinners, using produce from the local farm stores and what turned into a daily trip to Larson's Fish Market on the dock of Menemsha. Very clean and organized, comfortable beds, 2 full baths, large family and dining room, screened-in porch, quiet area, just perfect for a family vacation on MV. The private beach of Lambert's Cove is the most beautiful on the island and one of the best spots for sunsets. Many thanks to the home owners for thinking of everything that makes their vacation home so special and easy to live in. We loved our vacation here!
