About Andrea

Mel fell in love with the island on his first visit to Marthas Vineyard. After a few more visits, he decided he wanted his own home built to his specifications. Having worked as a manger in a hotel, owning his own services business and owning another real estate property, he felt he knew what guests would expect and deserve.

The home was built to meet the needs of more than one family with all the amenities he would want for his own family. He is very proud of his consistent focus on service, maintenance, and continuous improvement of his property. Mel spent a significant amount of time interviewing caretakers and cleaning staff to ensure the house will be kept in perfect and pristine condition.

Mel is always available by phone to answer any and all questions for his guests. His main goal is to ensure a great guest experience and meet all of their individual needs.

Andrea purchased this house in 1998

What makes this house unique

Great location - spend part of the day at the beach - return home - enjoy swimming in your private salt water pool - have dinner on the patio and after dark cook smores on the fire pit.

This extraordinary home features large and open space that easily accommodates two families with its 4 bedrooms (3 are master suites) and 4.5 bathrooms.. The fabulous interior floor plan has two separate gathering areas which provide room for everyone’s interests. There is a 2nd floor large and bright Great Room with 32’ ceilings that is open to the kitchen and dining area, so whether you’re relaxing on the sofa while taking in the beautiful sunset, preparing a meal in the kitchen, or dining at the table, you’re sure to enjoy everyone’s company.

There is also a first floor family room with large flat screen TV which is great for watching a movie or taking in a ball game.

The expansive lawns allow for outdoor games, while the garage can store your toys, bikes, and strollers.

This home is in a perfect location - within walking distance to South Beach and a 5-minute drive to Edgartown.

The owner is always available and reachable by phone and there is a caretaker, maintenance person, and cleaning crew on the island.

Last but not least, previous guests often remark that the house is so much more beautiful in person than it appears in the photos !

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and my best friend's family stayed at 9 Thaxter Lane in the Spring of 2016 with our young children and had a fabulous vacation. The home was immaculate and spotless upon our arrival (and I am a tough critic!)

The house was very large, beautifully decorated, and provided more than enough space for both of our families. The open layout on the 2nd floor allowed me to prepare meals while still being able to interact with my family and friends. The kitchen was well stocked and provided me with everything that I needed to cook (although I'm by no means a professional chef!)

We look forward to visiting in 2017 and are especially excited about the new pool. It's hard to imagine that the house can get any better but the pool will be the icing on the cake!
