Edgartown Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms plus loft with 2 twins, 1 full bathroom, 1 outdoor shower, sleeps 6

We finished a remodel of the inside of this property in October 2009. The house is cozy and can accomodate up to 6 people. The kitchen and living room are adjoined for easy entertaining. The master bedroom has it's own entrance which goes out to the back yard and outdoor shower. It is about 950 sq. ft. situated on a 1/3 acre lot on Vineyard Haven Rd. The yard is partially fenced with nice landscaping. There is a back porch with 2 chairs to relax on, a brick patio, and an outdoor shower. There is also a hammock in the backyard and a sandy area with 4 chairs and a fire pit. The location of the property is on the bike path and bus route. There is a small beach/boat launch about 2 blocks away. The house is approximately 2 miles from the center of Edgartown.

** Construction of an unattached garage will begin in Spring of 2016.**

Cute comfortable cottage

  • 3 of 5

Overall a convenient and pleasant house to stay in on the island, however you will need a car to get to the beaches, and the other towns/sites unless you choose to take the bus. (Note: this is mentioned in other reviews.) Should you take the bus, it is 10-12 minutes to Edgartown city center, depending on traffic; and only $1.50/way. What we loved about the house: the outdoor shower, especially on the hot humid day/evenings; the ceiling fans in all of the bedrooms and den are a plus for circulating the air; a lovely breeze moves throughout the house; and the outdoor patio area just off of the kitchen is the best in the morning and late afternoon to sit and perhaps read, enjoy a cold beverage or journal. Adequate lighting outside for the parking area and front of cottage, for returning after the sun goes down.

On the 2nd day an army of ants appeared in the kitchen all along the cabinets, refrigerator and patio door which led to the outside area. My cousin who was visiting from Japan went nuts! What should be noted is that no food or crumbs were present, so unsure of why they appeared. (Note: There is ant insecticide provided in the house which we put down immediately and they all disappeared.) I would highly recommend a deep good cleaning of the kitchen, especially the stove and hood area; and fixing the broken kitchen cabinet that houses the pot and pans. Also providing additional glassware/plastic ware for drinking cold beverages -- there are only 3 drinking glasses, yet plenty of mugs for warm beverages. The red wine glasses that are there are quite proper/excellent for drinking a very fine good bottle of red wine! The glass shelf over the bathroom sink needs to be tightened and/or reinforced. I was afraid it was going to crash onto the sink many times and did my best to prevent this. The cottage is also 1 mile away from 2 yoga studios (Yoga on the Vine and Hot Yoga, both off of Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road). Yoga on the Vine is a small studio with very qualified teachers. Trader Fred's an all-inclusive beach/island random stuff store; a liquor and mini food store; a pharmacy/drugstore; a donut coffee shop, and an Italian pizza-type restaurant; plus other shops and/or stores that we did not visit. Mad Martha's Brewery, Sharky's, as well as a few other restaurants (we did not go to those) are within 1.5 miles away. It is for the maintenance and cleaning reasons listed above that I have rated the cottage a 3 star; yet I would recommend it.

What a wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful spot. Minutes from State beach and downtown Edgartown. Just a short hop skip and a jump to Oak Bluffs as well. The house has a tremendous and huge yard and is great for kids and adult hanging out!! We had everything we needed for a family with 4 young children. The house was clean and well kept and the owner was super responsive when we had any questions. What a great week!!!

This is a really nice little home. Perfect for two people or a small family of four. We came in the dead of winter this February and it was peaceful and nice and quiet. The house has everything you need in the kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. Just so you're aware, the couches in the living room are different than depicted in the pictures (they are leather, and quite comfortable). We hope you try it out!

Great yard, comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute cottage, with a nice big yard space. The yard is not fully enclosed and the house is on a high-traffic street - so it's not entirely safe to leave a pet or child unsupervised. There is a high fence that gives the yard privacy, and plenty of outdoor furniture for lounging. The house itself can accommodate around 6 people; there is only one bathroom, but there is an outdoor shower. It can use some updating, especially the carpet and the outdoor grill, but overall it was a comfortable place to come back to after a day at the beach. The owner added some nice touches, like a couple of bags with beach towels left by the door, ready to go. Over all, this probably works best for families with children who can make the most of the fantastic yard.

Highest recommendation

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic little getaway at a great price. The house is recently renovated, with a modern kitchen and living area, and comfortably sleeps 6 - nicely done master bedroom and second bedroom and a loft that would be great for kids. The backyard is huge and has everything you could want for relaxing and lounging -- deck chairs, a patio table, a hammock and fire pit. The location is accessible to most of the Vineyard, but definitely not walkable (10 minute drive to beach, 15 to ferry, 5 mins to downtown Edgartown) so plan on car, bike or public transportation.

Finally, the owner was extremely friendly, accommodating, and responsive - even left bikes for us to use and a bottle of wine to welcome us!

We are about 2 blocks away from Sengekontacket Pond (salt water pond). There is a small beach there as well as a boat launch. We are about 1 mile away from Stop & Shop and restaurants. The location is right on the bike path and downtown Edgartown is about 3 miles away. We are also in close proximity to Felix Neck Audobon where there are some beautiful hiking trails through the woods as well as along the beach (less than a mile). There is also Island Alpaca up the road which is a fun spot for kids. The State beach is about 2 miles away and South Beach is about 4 miles away.
