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.

Fantastic Stay, Wonderful Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about the wonderful accommodations the cottage affords. The space has a great layout, its very functional and has all the amenities that one could want/need. Additionally, the location can't be beat.

Our Hosts were very responsive and helpful during the run up to our visit and facilitated a great experience while on island.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Romantic Cottage.

-Location was terrific. We biked into town most mornings for coffee and breakfast. We also walked into town at night for dinner quite a few times.

-Cottage is adorable and has everything you need: outdoor grill, outdoor shower, spacious living room, queen bed.

-Kitchen is little but, for us, it had everything we needed. We made breakfast most mornings and made a simple dinner twice. Fridge is like a dorm fridge but we stayed for five nights and it worked out just great for keeping drinks, eggs, cheeses and a few other things cold.

-Cottage was spotless upon arrival.

-Laundry was super convenient.

-Stop and Shop is also five minutes away for anything you might need.

Owners were super nice and welcomed us on the first day. We had been to the island quite a bit so didn't need suggestions but if we had needed any, they were right there.

We had our car with us so that we could explore the whole island but it would have been just fine if we didn't. 10 minute walk to Edgartown and central transit system.

Would definitely come back again!

Quintessential Edgartown; we just loved it

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 6 nights in this beautiful little cottage. During our visit we were often out and about; bicycling, walking, shopping, relaxing on the beach and seeing the sites. The cottage was the ideal home-base for us. From there it was an easy walk to the town center, the bus stop and the beach. The ferry dock at Oaks Bluff is accessible by taxi, we rented bicycles from Wheel Happy and we never needed (or wanted) a car. The cottage is part of a quiet, fragrant and picturesque setting behind the main house. The grounds and the buildings are out of a magazine. Inside the cottage, everything is clean, neat, private and on the smaller size with style. Our hosts were inviting, accommodating and made our stay memorable. This is a special place, we just loved it and have just 358 days before we’re back in Edgartown.

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.
