Located on a quiet dirt road in the Katama section of Edgartown, this comfortable Cape provides a relaxing environment for your Martha's Vineyard vacation. South Beach and Edgartown center are both within 1.5 miles of this property. Bike paths and picturesque neighborhoods make these destinations an easy and enjoyable walk or bike ride. The house is centered on a large half-acre lot with brushy borders providing privacy. A spacious lawn surrounds the house and is perfect for croquet and other yard games. A deck overlooks the back yard and provides an ideal vantage point for viewing the many birds that frequent the property.
The first floor combines the living room, dining room and kitchen areas into an open and inviting living space. Several windows and a glass sliding door to the deck brighten the space and provide views to the greenery surrounding the house. A bedroom and full bath complete the first floor. The second floor includes two bedrooms and a bath.
The house has a full basement, which is ideal for storing bikes and beach equipment. A washer and drier are located in the basement. An outdoor shower (with hot and cold water) is useful for washing off the sand after a day at the beach. A hammock, located in the shade of a mimosa tree, beckons for book reading and siestas.
The back deck features a large picnic table and a gas grill. The dining room table expands to seat 10 comfortably. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, large refrigerator, electric stove/oven, microwave and toaster oven.
One second floor bedroom sleeps 2 with a queen bed. The other second floor bedroom sleeps 3 with two twins and a day bed -- this is a good room for children. The first floor bedroom sleeps 2 with a queen bed. The living room couch is a sleeper sofa and can sleep 2 extra guests. All bedrooms are equipped with window fans for sleeping comfort.
The house is equipped with Comcast cable and internet services. There is a TV in the living room connected to the cable, and a DVD player. (There is a TV in the children's room with only a DVD player.) There is an internet router in the living room which provides both wired and wireless internet connections.
This house was wonderfully maintained and perfect for myself, my husband, and my parents to enjoy a week on the Vineyard. I have visited the island yearly for the past 30 years and I can easily say this is one of the best cared for homes I've stayed in. The house, while technically on the smaller side, feels much larger in person. The table is comfortable, the kitchen is very well stocked, and the lot is large and quiet. It's a quick trip to south beach, Edgartown, or Morning Glory farm. It does not have air conditioning, but we visited during a very warm spell in September and it was still comfortable at night. We could not have been happier with our stay and hope to return.
We really enjoyed our (almost) week at this house in Edgartown. It's very private—we could lie on the hammock in the backyard and not feel like we had an audience. The location is great—about halfway between town and South Beach. The house was just as shown. Everything worked nicely and Tom, the owner, was great to work with. He even refunded us an extra $100 from the security deposit because we mentioned we had to leave a day early! Very unexpected and nice gesture. I recommend this house!
