About Mike & Brenda Lally

Hello there,

My family and I have been coming to the Vineyard since I was 10 years old when my parents first built the house. We know all the fun things to do on the island and love to share that information with our renters and prospective renters. We've taken over rental business and have made many improvements every year that I think you will really like. This year we've added hardwood floors on the 2nd floor and painted 1st floor hallway and the entire second floor walls and ceiling which looks bright and fresh. We know you'll enjoy your visit. Give us a call.

Why Mike & Brenda Lally chose Edgartown Area

This is a wonderful contemporary home located in Katama a short distance from South Beach. Unlike many homes, the living space (Kitchen, living room, dining room, and dan) are all located on the 2nd floor. House is unique because it has two decks-one off the 2nd floor and one rooftop deck.

What makes this house unique

Have all the amenities you'll need including: gas and charcol grills, beach chairs, comfortable beds and nicely decorated comfortable home. Near bike path to town or the beach. Near grass Katama airport-take a ride on a Bi-plane or enjoy breakfast at the Fork in the Road diner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I have recently taken over the rental of this wonderful 5 bedroom home. We've made many improvements to the home which is nicely located near South Beach in the Katama area. The house is very spacious and comfortable. We happen to love that the living space is all on the 2nd floor with a large 2nd floor deck and a really fun 3rd floor roof top deck. We always enjoy going up to the top deck at night for a drink and to look at the stars. The sky is so beautiful. House is fully equipped. Hope to see you this year!!

Nice home near Edgartown

  • 4 of 5

This house gives a nice appearance when you walk in. Four nice bedrooms with two full baths downstairs, and a laundry room. Upstairs is very airy and open. A den has a foldout couch, which was reported to be comfortable. It is close to Katama Airport, which has one of the best breakfast places around, and it is only .2 miles away. Loved the outdoor decks. Sunbathed one day and waved to the pilots as they fly overhead. The only problem is the "5th bedroom." It shows two twin beds. NOT! They are actually wood storage cabinets with a 3" foam cushion. We used this house as a girls' weekend. With six of us, we figured we would all get our own room. I drew the twin beds. The "bed" in the tiny closet of a room was not comfortable at all! I personally would not even put a kid on these worn out cushions. I ended up sleeping on the couch two nights, which was minimally more comfortable as a bed. So, location to the Airport, Edgartown -- great. House, very nice. If you are an adult, or care about your children, do not use the "kid's room." Neither of them were the size of a twin bed, and they were definitely NOT comfortable! I would recommend this house if you only needed four bedrooms and a den that you could convert to a bedroom if needed.

Spacious Vineyard house

  • 5 of 5

We shared the house with another family and felt there was plenty of room for us all to be comfortable. It is well located, right off bike path, near Katama Airport and South Beach. We look forward to renting it again.

Great Vineyard House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for quite a few years and always enjoy coming back. The open living space is great for a family of 4-6. It features two great decks and is well maintained. It is everything you would want to experience a nice vacation. Mike and Brenda are a pleasure to deal with and make improve to every year. It's the little details that they pay attention to that separate it from other rentals.

Lovely, spacious home

  • 5 of 5

This house offers tons of space for the whole family to spread out, with five bedrooms, two beautiful decks and a nice-sized yard. There is a large dining table so the whole family can eat together if they choose, and several televisions if people don't agree on what to watch. The kitchen is well equipped and upon arrival everything was clean. The beach is just a short bike ride away via a bike path. Town is a little further. There is an adorable little greasy spoon/cafe at the airport, also just a short walk down the road.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family of six enjoyed our stay at this rental house. It is clean and very well maintained. Everything was just as stated in the listing. It is very well decorated and is very roomy. It is a short walk to the beach. The outside shower came in handy for one member of our group who was downed by a wave at the ocean and accumulated sand in her clothes. It is close enough to all the towns on the Vineyard. The owners have a notebook that is very helpful in finding places to shop for necessities. The owners answered all the questions we had prior to our visit. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect home for a family vacation. It is very close to south beach and right off of the bike path. We spent a lot of time on the roof deck which has a great view. I would recommend taking a short ride to jump the jaws bridge. My family had a blast here and I would highly recommend this spot to anyone.

Car: recommended

Great bike paths which will take you to nearby South Beach (1/2 mile) or downtown (1.5 miles). Near Katama Airport where you can take bi-plane rides and tour the island from the sky if you dare. Walk to Right Fork restaurant at the Katama Airfield for a delicious breakfast or just sit on the balcony, read a book. South Beach is the best beach on the island and has plenty of parking, changing rooms, sand dunes and surf. Great surf fishing off South Beach. Also can charter fishing downtown. Tons of bluefish and stripers from spring to fall for those who love to fish like me.
