Guestbook comments from the owner

Note from Diane B (Pleasant Mount, PA) - Your home was perfect for our mini vacation at Martha's Vineyard. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and were able to appreciate the atmosphere of the island. We are looking forward to returning someday as the time we spent was not nearly enough to do everything we wanted to do.

We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to stay a bit longer on our last day as our ferry didn't leave until 7:15 PM. We were able to enjoy the day and not feel rushed to get packed up and move out. So thank you very much.

Again, thank you for sharing a piece of "paradise" with us and allowing the little extra time.

Clean, cozy, and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

Aside from echoing the comments of other reviewers, I can only add that I was pretty impressed with how fresh the renovations still look in spite of their now being about six years old. It's a testament to the work the owners have done to keep the place clean and in good shape. What you can't appreciate from the photos and description is the perfect combination of light and shade that you enjoy both inside the cottage and on the deck. Even both bathrooms have natural light coming in from at least one window or skylight. While the bathrooms are not huge, they're a bit more generous than some other places we've stayed in. The beds are extremely comfortable, firm mattresses, but with pillow tops. Even the linens, towels and sheets, we nicer than I expected. The kitchen is pretty well equipped if you prefer to eat in most of the time. There are some beach chairs and a beach umbrella available in the laundry room. In good weather, the deck is like another living space, on which you can enjoy a consistent chorus of birds, punctuated by the occasional call of a rooster (whom we dubbed Coq au Vin). State Road is on the busy side, so you do get a little traffic noise, but the house does sit well back from the road, so it doesn't feel intrusive. Since you can also get from one side of the island to the other on State Road, it's pretty darned convenient to whatever you want to do. Bike paths start within 500 feet of the house going each way. You can pick it up leading down-island on the house side of the road at Island Farm Road, and you can pick up another bike trail leading up-island at South Indian Hill Road. The house is also near bus stops, if you'd prefer to take the bus into one of the busier areas, like Oak Bluffs or Edgartown. Some of the nicest hikes we went on, Cedar Tree Neck, Menemsha Hills, Fulling Mill Brook, and Peaked Hill, were very near the house. One word of caution, if you're hiking or just making your way to one of the less public beaches, beware of both poison ivy and ticks. We did eat at the State Road Restaurant, which is less than a mile from the house, and it was delicious, though pricey. We also went for the Friday night lobster rolls at Grace Episcopal Church in Vineyard Haven. The size of these lobster rolls is in no way exaggerated. You may want to skip lunch. Bottom line, this is a great place to relax after busy days of exploration.

Owner's Response: We’re very pleased that Caroline and her party enjoyed their time on the island and more specifically, enjoyed our house and its location, as well as some of our recommendations. Cleanliness and comfort are at the top of our list when we travel, and we want our guests to enjoy both. Although the renovation was completed in 2009, we take care to maintain the property and to provide quality linens and comfortable beds; it’s very important to us that our guests have a 5-star experience and get to truly enjoy their time on this beautiful island. Caroline commented on the location, which our guests find ideal for traveling to the other island towns, and also the house’s proximity to the bike path, beautiful beaches, public transportation, and much more. We also recommend that lobster-lovers plan Friday night dinner at the Grace Church in Vineyard Haven where they serve the best lobster roll dinner on the island, and it sounds like Caroline and her party enjoyed this recommendation as well. We hope to hear from her the next time she plans to visit this fabulous island.

Charming rental!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this lovely rental property! It was centrally located to all the towns on the island, and close to beaches, great breakfast spots, and art & glass galleries. This spacious home was nestled among the trees, with a delightful patio and outdoor grill to enjoy. French doors opened up to the patio, which was an unexpected bonus. It was the perfect place to enjoy our morning coffee before heading out for a day of adventure on the Vineyard; it was also the perfect spot to enjoy wine & cocktails after a day of fun. Everything was exceptionally clean and modern. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were really comfortable, with extra-thick mattress pads and what appeared to be new pillows. The bathrooms were spotless and it appeared that everything had been totally remodeled within the past several years. The kitchen and dining area were perfect for our needs and the full dining room could easily seat 8-10 people. We were pleasantly surprised to find a large screen TV and full cable TV. We weren't planning on watching much television during our stay but it was sure nice to come back from a long day of sightseeing and just relax and watch a movie. There were lots of family games available to play, too, but we were just tired for Scrabble! The home owners (Dave and Nancy Steinberg) were a pleasure to deal with and were able to answer all our questions about ferry service, getting around the island, best beaches, etc. We would absolutely recommend this rental property and we look forward to returning next year!

Owner's Response: We try to accurately describe the property and all of its accouterments, and we are always pleased when our guests comment that the property exceeded their expectations. Cleanliness and comfort are our primary objectives and, based on Stacy’s comments, it appears our objectives were met. We also like to ensure that newcomers know as much as possible about the island’s offerings so they can enjoy the activities and sites that make it such a special place. In their short stay, they seemed to take-in much of what the Vineyard has to offer and also enjoyed returning to the comfort of our Vineyard home. We look forward to having them back next year.

Our First Trip to the Island

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we wanted, clean, comfortable, spacious, and convenient to anyplace on the Island. I felt like I was in my own home. The property is situated almost equidistant from any beach or attraction on the Island. It's the perfect vacation spot, especially sitting out on the porch unwinding from the days activities.

Owner's Response: I’m so glad Tom and Joanne enjoyed their stay. I knew it was their first time to the island so I tried to make it as comfortable and “familiar” as possible by providing information about things to do that would interest them, and also give them a feel for the island and all it has to offer. The closest beach is Lambert’s Cove but, as Tom said, due to the location you’re not far from anywhere on the island.

A Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying here last year, so I decided to return to this same lovely house for a few days this spring. It's still as charming as I remembered it. The location is great, with a walking distance to some stores and coffee shops. Everything in the house is clean, neat and organized. It is so peaceful and quiet sitting on the deck or just walking around the spacious yard. It's a perfect place for a quick getaway or a long relaxing stay. I will definitely be returning to this delightful house in the near future. Thank you.

Owner's Response: It was wonderful having Peggy and her friends return to our home for their “girls getaway”. I know they enjoyed their visit last year and used it to get a feel for the island, now they’re pros. I hope to welcome her and her family and/or friends back again soon.

Extremely clean, well-maintained Vineyard house.

  • 5 of 5

The house was recently renovated, is very well-maintained and is kept extremely clean. The children really enjoyed the private yard. The house is close to the village in relatively rural West Tisbury and is within an easy drive of many Vineyard attractions.

Owner's Response: Bill and his young family are new to the Boston area and had never been to Martha's Vineyard. I knew they wanted a rental where they would all be comfortable and the children would have a safe play area. Based on the ages of his children and the amount of time they had available for their mini-vacation, I provided them with information on attractions and things to do that would ensure a good time for all. I’m pleased that Bill and his family enjoyed the house and its cleanliness, as well as the child-friendly yard.

Secluded, clean, family friendly home

  • 5 of 5

I needed a vacation badly and wanted my own island beach house, but I wanted to have all the comforts of my home. I have been renting beach homes for over 20 years and Nancy and David's house exceeded my expectations! It was by far the cleanest property I have ever rented, with one of the best outdoor showers I have ever used. The house is on a secluded country lot close to beaches and towns. I wasn't sure what to do on the island, but that wasn't a problem Nancy has a complete listing of things to do with updated copies of brochures. Or just log into the wifi and search. The media room was great for the kids and the open floor plan with attached deck made this the perfect home away from home.

Owner's Response: Diane made it very clear in our conversation that she had high expectations for a vacation rental and that comfort, cleanliness, and location were her top priorities. I’m so glad our home exceeded her expectations. She made a point of telling us that the beds were the most comfortable she ever had in a rental property, and the house was the cleanest she had ever rented. I know she also appreciated the location which allowed her easy access to all the Vineyard has to offer, and she made good use of the info package we sent which included some of our favorite things to do. She told me she visited the Alpaca farm, Menemsha, Aquinnah, Chappy, Vineyard Glassworks, and much more. Although she wasn’t there very long, she got a great taste of the Vineyard.
