About Elaine Vanderhoop

It is my sincere desire to share our lovely vacation retreat with you, and if you enjoy simplicity paired with great comfort and respect for the environment, you will love this cottage as much as we do.

Elaine Vanderhoop purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Elaine Vanderhoop chose Martha's Vineyard

We have been Island visitors since 1979 and have family in Aquinnah. The unsurpassed beauty and serenity, the pristine waters, and unspoiled vistas of this beautiful Island and Aquinnah in particular will revitalize your senses and restore your serenity.

What makes this cottage unique

Ocean Views, privacy, clean, non-allergenic house, great amenities, and beautiful wildflower field, and freshwater pond on 3 lovely acres.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a very quick email to say thank you. We had a glorious time and loved Martha's Vineyard. The Skye Lane cottage was great - just right for us - off the main roads with good privacy but within very easy walking distance of the beach and cycling to shops etc in Menemsha & Chilmark. We were so comfortable we longed to stay another week but unfortunately work commitments prevented us asking about availability.

We were very happy with the service we received from Beachcombers and are very keen to return to MV so will be in touch when the next opportunity to travel arises - hopefully that will be sooner rather than later.

Thank you once again.

Kind regards

Fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5

I had such a nice stay in this home! The house is updated and the grounds are secluded and peaceful. I walked to the beach and rode the bike. I very nice bike I might add. Elaine was wonderful to work with.

I do agree with one reviewer that the living room is not suitable for kids. It starts getting light at 4:30 in the morning! And, you would not want to try to shade the windows and the beautiful view. The shades are nice in the bedroom.

Thank you so much for a delightful stay!

Would go back again

  • 5 of 5

Great for people looking for a quiet, low-key island experience. The cottage was as advertised, clean and comfy. Close enough that you can walk to Lobsterville Beach or bike to Acquinnah public beach. But you will want a car for other outings. The property manager was responsive and helpful. We would go back again.

A wonderful cottage in Aquinnah

  • 5 of 5

We rented 3 Skye for a week in mid-October, and loved it. The house is located on an expansive piece of private yet open land on the western side of the island near the Gay Head Cliffs, Chilmark, Menemsha and Middle Road. Its large arched window in the living room provides a panoramic view to Vineyard Sound and the Elizabeth Islands. The house is in great shape and perfect for two people. It is very bright, cheerful, and very well appointed. The bathroom is large and modern, and the kitchen well equipped for the lobster and fish dinners we prepared. The deck, outfitted with chaise lounges and dining table, is a true bonus. We drove the short drive to the cliffs each night for sunset, enjoyed quite a bit of biking on our own bikes (the house also has 2 bikes), and felt like regulars at the excellent Orange Peel Bakery and Menemsha Fish Market, as well as at the Beetlebung and Mermaid Farm farm stands on Middle Road. Barbara of Beachcombers was very helpful. 3 Skye is truly special.

The View is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage in early July. If you are looking for total peace and quiet this is where you want to be. The ocean view from the deck never gets old. The house is quite roomy with a beautiful extra large two person shower. Lobsterville Beach is very close with warm water to enjoy. If you plan on cooking at the cottage be prepared to bring your groceries and any special spices as supplies nearby are very limited and nearest large store about 30 min. away. Wished we had brought our kayaks as many beautiful coves abound to explore. Don't forget to go to The Bite in Menemsha for awesome fried clams. My wife and I had a wonderful and relaxing time here and will return soon. Thanks for the friendly and accommodating rental experience!

A Relaxing Time

  • 5 of 5

My husband and spent 3 nights at this relaxing vacation home in June. We cannot say enough about our experience. The home is well-equipped, beautiful, clean, modern, full of light, peaceful and most important, the views of Vineyard Sound are stunning off the large deck. We used the bikes to ride to the lighthouse and Lobsterville Beach. We spent most of our time on the wonderful deck enjoying the view of the water, the sun and the wildflowers. Just a short bike ride away is the Orange Peel Bakery which we went to twice in one was that good!

We left Aquinnah feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Lovely fragrant wildflowers and perennials surround you.
