|Minimum Stay||3 - 6 nights|
A large and quiet property in the East Chop Martha's Vineyard. This beach home sleeps 16-20 and includes 8 bedrooms, 3 baths and a large outdoor shower. The house is located 400 feet from the local jetty beach and yacht club and only a ten-minute walk around the harbor into Oak Bluffs.
This completely renovated 1870 Victorian beach home is one of the grand old cottages on Martha's Vineyard. Sit out on the deck in the morning and take in the crisp ocean air as you read the local Vineyard Gazette, or take your paper to the local beach only a half-block away. Experience the true Vineyard experience by being in the middle of it all but feeling like you're far, far away. An ideal vacation spot for all.
We have been going to Marthas Vineyard since 1950 and love the feeling of a bygone era where family, friends and the beach are what summer is all about!!!
Being able to walk to the beach, to the lighthouse, and into town and bike all around the island. Old-timers say East Chop is the best location on the island!
There were 15 of us ranging in ages 2 -72...a multi generational family vacation. The house offers so much space that we never interfered with the dynamics of each generation. The young children were able to play and have their own space while still being a part of the activities of the house. The parents had their time and space while the grandparents enjoyed the deck and festivities of all the family members. The kitchen was a common place for all and served as the hub of the operation. The grounds are well manicured and scenic. A home away form home. A perfect place for a family reunion or just a summer vacation for a large gathering of friends.
We look forward to our yearly escape from the city to what we consider our home away from home. Fine location with everything you would imagine a beach house to have. Cozy bedrooms, living room, dining room, and kitchen; huge porch that I sometimes spend my whole day on-enjoying my morning coffee and listening to the birds. reading my Nook, and then wine at night. I feel so relaxed here that I don't want to leave and go into town unless it is raining and too damp to sit on the porch. We love being here and look forward to our yearly stay. My husband didn't think he would like an outdoor shower, but he misses that the most.
We had a mixed crowd of 18 people a few weeks ago. This was our fourth time staying here and we love it. Easy easy walk to the beach or the town of Oak Bluffs. The house itself is well equipped and other than towels and sheets we did not need to bring anything with us. The kitchen is well stocked and has high end appliances...all working! Wi-fi is available throughout the house and mobile phone reception is good. We love the wrap around porch for morning coffee, afternoon sun catching or evening cocktails. There are lots of comfortable chairs and a swing seat. We always take our car on the ferry so we can explore the island and go to the different towns and beaches.
I would recommend the property for families, friends, a mixed group of people. It is comfortable and there is easy access to the town and beach. There is a bedroom downstairs with twin beds for those who may not be able to maneuver the stairs for the bedrooms upstairs.
Rent this place and enjoy a week or two of ocean, seafood, beach and fun times.
Back again! I was here with 10 years ago with female friends from all over who didn't know one another. It was perfect! There was plenty for everyone to do around town, and plenty of room too! Everyone has great memories of their vacation. I tried it again with a variety of couples, college students, and singles and, once again, it worked beautifully. One person flew into Boston and took the shuttle right to the Ferry. The house functions perfectly giving plenty of space for everyone if they want to steal away, kitchen is well executed to handle multiple cooks, and plenty of bathrooms. Planning extended family trip next year for two weeks with TEENAGERS. They will be bringing their bikes, should be easily entertained, and the adults stress-free! Looking forward to drinks on the deck!
Im writing this review pretty far after the time my family and I spend a summer week there because I loved it so much I contacted the owners to book another week this upcoming summer. This house is only a 4 minute walk from the beach and 10 minute walk from the popular Oak Bluffs but you would never know how quiet with how relaxing the location is. My wife and family loved walking the sandy path directly to the beach which is fantastic since we do not have to all pile in the car and drive. A short bike ride around the busy harbor brings plenty of activities to do at night.
The house itself was beautiful. There were so many rooms the kids each had there own with some left over, so our friends met us and spend a few days. There was an outdoor shower with flowers blooming everywhere which was perfect to rinse off that salt water after the beach. Couldn't ask for a better place on Martha's Vineyard and will be back again!
What a great place to spend some of our summer vacation! the house was lovely--spacious, charming, with a very east-coast relaxed feel. It is perfectly located between the more picturesque oceanside views of east chop, and the town of Oak Bluffs that offers more activities. Also, the 2-minute walk to the beach is perfect to be able to pop over there at any time--sunset, lunch, etc.
All the rooms at the house are very comfortable and decorated with unique vintage signs, creating a wonderful beachhouse feel. A fantastic place!
Very short walking access to all of Oak Bluffs. Full walking access to the main strip, Circuit Ave, and America's oldest carousel. Walk to the East Chop lighthouse, the beach, and the harbor. This house is also surrounded by 13 acres of parkland.
Pay ahead with signed lease- Sunday-Sunday rentals
