Guestbook comments from the owner

This has to be the cutest cottage on the Vineyard! My wife and I stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. Great location, close to everything, and the grounds are beautiful. Edgartown is just down the road as well as Chappaquiddick Island and all the lovely beaches. Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven are close by for all your shopping and dining pleasures. Or, just sit and relax on the front porch! Beautiful place for a couple to enjoy everything that MV has to offer, we had a ball! You can't miss with this terrific cottage rental.

Impeccable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is extremely cozy, cute and clean. It was the perfect little escape set behind beautiful gardens on the main property. The homeowners were pleasant and extremely respectful. There was not one problem to be had with the cottage during our stay but I have no doubt the owners would have attended to it immediately had one occurred. The cottage was not only clean but beautiful and so close to town. The only negative of this property is that it is set back a ways from the designated parking space - so if someone was handicapped or injured or if there was a rain storm getting to your vehicle would not be easy. Other than that it was the ideal spot for our summer get away.

Cozy, charming and convenient retreat for two

  • 5 of 5

This delightful cottage is the perfect retreat for two who want a quintessential Vineyard experience. It is a short walk from the cottage to Edgartown village and all that it offers; great shops, restaurants, art galleries, music venues, cafes, a great book store, a lovely harbor and beautiful beaches. We did not need a car because there are many options for getting around , although convenient parking is available . Biking is a great option too with many bike rental places that will deliver and pick up from the cottage. We love the variety of gorgeous beaches and we enjoy the spacious outdoor shower at the end of a beach day.

The cottage is immaculately clean and fresh, all linens and towels are provided and the decor has that wonderful Vineyard cottage charm and ambiance we seek when looking for a beach rental. The cottage offers privacy tucked behind very pretty gardens. The wisteria-covered front porch is a favorite place to sit and read.

The owners are anxious to please and very helpful should you need something, They offer wonderful recommendations of places to see and eat, and cultural and fun activities to enjoy during our weeks there. We return often, as the variety of activities and the sheer pleasure of being on the island keep us coming back year after year.

Perfect location, beautifully maintained

  • 5 of 5

Perfect romantic or peaceful getaway!

This pretty and idyllic Vineyard cottage is a short stroll to Edgartown’s shops, restaurants and beaches. Located in one of Edgartown’s prettiest areas, you’ll love that this home is in a quiet spot that is close to everything. Spend your summer vacation at this interior designer’s own recently built charming cottage surrounded by gorgeous English gardens. Stroll along a country road lined with rose covered cottages and fences to downtown Edgartown - just a 7-10 minute walk. The approach to the cottage is through a garden gate with seasonal flowers all around, lovingly maintained by the owner.

The queen bedroom leads to a quiet back garden. The full bath is equipped with a tub/shower and washer/dryer. There is a lovely stone gas fireplace in the living room, a two twin-bedded loft, central air, and a luxurious outdoor shower. The house comes fully equipped with linens, towels and all the kitchen items you’ll need. Cook some of the Vineyard’s fresh-caught fish in the outdoor gas grill, rinse off after a day at the beach in the luxurious outdoor shower. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Beautiful Romantic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed on this property, in this romantic cottage, or in the main house over a period of several years. We've always loved it. We live in California and kept coming back every year. This idyllic cottage was perfect for my husband and me with its very comfortable queen size bed, charming beach cottage decor, central air conditioning., stone gas fireplace, washer and dryer in the cottage bathroom, a full tub/shower, and a gas grill outside. The large open main room with a comfortable seating area, eating area and kitchen area is a perfect size for an easy and relaxing vacation. This cottage is surrounded by beautiful gardens lovingly maintained by the owners. A spacious, recently-added outdoor shower is a treat after a day at the beach. The location is ideal, just a short walk to town, past pretty Vineyard houses, and near to several great beaches. The only reason we do not stay here anymore is that we fell in love with this vacation spot so much that we looked and looked and recently found and purchased our own Martha's Vineyard house! But we also miss staying at this property, as it has so many wonderful features. We return every year to visit now, to take a walk through a beautiful conservation area nearby, and see the gardens in bloom.

Lovely cottage, great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely cottage with very helpful and responsive owners. The description is accurate; the location is behind the owners' house (at the end of a very nice yard) which is down a dirt road from Edgartown proper - nice and quiet.

It is a short walk into the downtown area of Edgartown; we only had our bikes and it was very easy to bike to beaches, shopping, etc. The kitchen is small - fine for breakfast and we did cook a couple of dinners on the hotplate and the grill outside, but you should be aware that it isn't a full kitchen.

We had a lovely time - the price is fair, the location is nice. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you decided to leave without talking to us in advance. During your stay, we were not informed of any of your concerns. We would have been happy and more than willing to bring you more reading lights, defrost your freezer, etc. The bed is a Queen, the loft is for guests' use, and we offer nearby parking for those who bring a car. All of our other guests have been delighted with their stay, as can be seen by our other reviews. We have many repeat renters. We take pride in creating and offering this adorable retreat in this wonderful location for a perfect Vineyard vacation.
