Martha's Vineyard House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, outdoor shower, sleeps 6

Spectacular water views from classic Martha's Vineyard waterfront home! Perched atop a bluff overlooking the Nantucket Sound and the wide lagoon between Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven.

Secluded and private, yet only a short distance from the two main Martha's Vineyard downtowns. Use the house as home base and a central location to explore all of the sights, shopping and seafood that Martha's Vineyard has to offer, or stay home and 'get away from it all'. Spend your time relaxing in the sun on the brick patio or the shade on the outdoor lanai while you take in the views and feel the cool breeze from over the water. Enjoy the flowering beautiful landscaped yard, or take a walk and relax on the private beach or dock.

Perfect for a romantic getaway for two, or for a special family vacation.

Magnificent views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with an extended stay, and we could feel our blood pressure drop and heart rate slow as we walked to the back of the house and saw the view. It simply could not have been better. I can only repeat everything in Ragini P's review. The kitchen was amazingly well equipped. Our time there was magical. The owner is responsive, and so concerned that people feel at home, which we certainly did. Would highly recommend this home.

Stunning views and serene vacation

  • 5 of 5

We found the owner to be extremely responsive and accommodating. It definitely gave us the perfect Martha's Vineyard experience too.... Quaint, peaceful, gorgeous sunset views, hammock and swing to relax in as you enjoy the sea breeze and soak in the sun. The house had tons of space, linens, towels, wifi, games, dishes, laundry dryer, you name it! Highly recommend and we hope to be back again. Lovely must stay property!

  • 5 of 5

Once again a wonderful Vineyard vacation at this beautiful home. The views are stunning over the Lagoon. We almost did not want to leave the property it was so enjoyable just staying put. Each time of day-morning , noon, sunset- presents a different view. This is our third year at this house, I guess that says it all!!!

Perfect Vineyard Charm, Beautiful Lagoon View!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from two weeks at this lovely home. This was our second year at the home, and we hope to return again next year. Views are stunning, especially around dinner. We did not want to leave the house. We would recommend this home very highly. The owners are great...very responsive and easy to deal with.

One week "de charme"

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Martha's Vineyard, because this island is so beautiful but also because of this house, so charming and so nicely located. Believe us : the sunsets from the terrasse are just as amazing as they seem to be on the picture ! The house is perfectly located, in a very quiet area of the island, and gives you the feeling to be "at home". The owner was very nice with us, before our arrival but also during our stay.

Among the places that we loved on the island, the little village of Menemsha where you can eat lobster, freshly cooked by the fishermen, in front of the harbour.

House on bluff in Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week in July, 2012. We traveled by boat from CT. The house has a large dock that we were able to keep our boat on. The house is on a bluff overlooking the lagoon with gorgeous views of the lagoon and the sailboats going by. There are 3 different area's to sit outside, one more peaceful and scenic than the other!! The master bedroom was a very nice size and had its own private deck overlooking the lagoon. The kitchen has every type of pot and pan and kitchen gadget you could possibly need. The house was extremely clean and gardens were beautiful. This house is centrally located between the two towns of Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven with restaurants and shopping not more than a 5 min. drive in either direction. One of the best features is that the house came with a minivan which was perfect for us arriving by boat. You can have a night out on the town and return to the private, peaceful location of the home. The owner was very honest and a pleasure to deal with. We cannot wait to return!!
