This is a charming cottage with detail and character. It has the feel of an older home made new. The high ceilings, hardwood floors(newly sanded fall 2015), and wooden stairwell show its style and beauty, and yet it is very clean, bright, and welcoming. The kitchen has been updated in fall 2015 with new granite countertops and hardwood floors put in. The pictures do not reflect these changes just yet. The house is located off maravista in a family friendly area with children in the neighborhood. The beaches are very close by, less than four streets away. You can just barely see Martha's vineyard from one of the upstairs bedrooms, but from the beaches it seems so close it looks like you can reach out and touch it.
A little more on the area...: It would be a great house for one large family or two smaller families to spend a vacation. There is lots to do in Falmouth, and there are also the islands and other parts of Cape Cod to explore as well. The Falmouth town beaches alone keep us busy for a long time. Biking is a great way to explore the area, and can carry you quite far on the islands, around Famouth, and Woods Hole, for candy stores, ice cream, beaches, and more. Personally we find so much to do in Falmouth, Woods Hole, and Martha's Vineyard, we almost never drive to other parts of Cape Cod.

I am a teacher and have grown up in falmouth during my summers.
Martha purchased this House in 2009
Why Martha chose Mara Vista
This property was owned by good friends when I was a child and the location was just perfect to walk to the beach and still easily get to Martha's Vineyard and Woods Hole too.
What makes this House unique
Some of my favorite things: I love that there are french doors sectioning off the living room from the sunroom where part of the family might be watching TV. I like how you can easily walk back from the beach if you want a snack or an afternoon nap. I love the old light fixtures all painted new. I love the art work - all photos of a terrific artist Lindsay Shaw.

It was everything we'd hoped for!
My husband & I are traveling the U.S. and we rented the house in Cape Cod because we wanted our 3 children to join us there. We had a long weekend of site seeing and hanging out in the great house together! It was super cozy and had plenty of room for game playing at he dining table or sitting in the living room chatting. We'd definitely stay there again!
3 Couples spent a great week at this home in Falmouth
2 other couples and my husband and I shared a great week in this lovely home in the great town of Falmouth. The house was very clean and comfortable and just a few blocks from the beach. Each couple had their own room and there were beds for more too. 1.5 baths and an outdoor shower meant nobody had to wait for the bathroom. I love this part of town because you can walk, bike, swim, eat, kayak, catch the ferry and have a cocktail all within a few blocks and with great views all around.
Great Cape Cottage!
Our family loved our week in Falmouth. Great location for town, beach, Vineyard ferry and overall a great vacation spot.
Home Away From Home
We have visited this home in Teaticket (Falmouth) for 7 years now. It has become our first vacation spot each summer and really allows our family to relax from our hectic busy lives. Set off the main street, this home on a dead end road allows for our kids to walk to the beach and bay safely, ride their bikes, play yard games and meet new friends without the fear of being hit by a car. The home itself is clean, well decorated and spacious. There is always plenty of room for extras when we stay. Lots of beds. The additional outdoor shower is a bonus- apparently a cape cod must have! There is a television with cable, wireless connection for computers (when we feel we need to log onto work) and of course all the devices that seem to join us no matter how hard we try and unplug. Each room is a beautiful pastel color. The floors are beautiful hard wood. Artwork on the walls is "fresh" and the kitchen has been updated a few times since we started coming to the home for vacation. Every year has a new update- you can tell the owners love this home and take care of it. The area has fantastic things for kids to do besides going to the water. The neighbors are always so friendly and have even babysat for us when we go out for an adult dinner! I wish that every home we vacationed in was this clean, organized, and beautiful! It truly feels like our home away from home. Thank you for having us year after year! We truly feel we have found the gem of Cape Cod.
Great Weekend in Falmouth
What a great place to meet up with Vineyard friends for a long, holiday weekend. Very cute place with plenty of room for 4 adults and 4 children. Easy walk to the beach with chairs and sand toys in tow. Washer and dryer a plus. Proximate to town and ferry. Especially grateful for key rescue when we locked ourselves out of the house. We love Maravista!
Great location, could use a little tlc.
We enjoyed our time at the house and the location could not be better! Had a wonderful time exploring the Cape and the local area. We all enjoyed the beaches. However, the house could use a deep clean and some minor repairs.
Also, it should be noted that guests must bring their own bed linens and towels. For those driving, not as much of an issue. For those flying in for a holiday, this is important.
Falmouth has a great downtown area as well as numerous beaches. It is close to woods Hole and less than a mile from the Island queen which will take you to Martha's vineyard. Falmouth is a very family friendly area with lots to do and enjoy including the bike path, golf courses, and great food and shopping downtown.
