Beach Chic

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could want in the perfect getaway - spacious well appointed home, fantastic location - private yet close to Edgartown, beaches and more. Fabulous open kitchen and deck are perfect for entertaining. I would rebook this home again in a minute - you won't be disappointed.

A week of beach living

  • 4 of 5

Starting with the ferry and ending with a ride on the Flying Horses Carousel our MV vacation was perfect, and choosing this home in Katama made everything in-between great. The house was clean upon arrival with beds perfectly made and clean towels in place. The large kitchen and grill on the deck made it easy to plan for family meals before we drove into town for Mad Martha’s ice cream. We rode the (provided) bikes to the beach almost every day and had this comfortable home to come back to relax. The kids loved their room with multiple beds and (provided) games to play and looked forward to playing on the swings in the yard.

The owners made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We look forward to heading back next year.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you and your family. I'm pleased everyone was comfortable and had great time. You were also a pleasure for the cleaning crew leaving the house in perfect order. Thanks for renting. Looking forward to a return visit.

My Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

I come back to MV every year and this house has been my home away from home for many of my stays. Clean, spacious, modern, bright. The neighborhood is true perfection - quiet, a short walk to South Beach (the best beach on the island) or The Right Fork Diner and a quick bike ride away from downtown Edgartown - there is an ocean breeze in Katama even on hot summer days. Comfortable beds, sheets, towels, a large yard with a playscape for kids, bikes for the whole family, beach gear, games... everything is provided! Big beautiful windows and sliding glass doors let you enjoy the view from every floor. Decks with chairs and a picnic table provide the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and dinner in the evening, all while listening to the ocean waves. And the owner is a pleasure to deal with and always responsive to questions prior to and during my visits.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else. This home truly is my happy place. Trust me, it will be yours to!

Not impressed

  • 1 of 5

House was in a great location but needs major TLC (tender love and care) All the appliances were very outdated and barely worked. Beds definitely need to be changed, super uncomfortable. Front door lock doesnt work Had to enter through upper balcony door. Not kid proof at all so if you are traveling with kids do not recommend. Bath tub doesnt drain at all! Bath towels smelled of dogs. Cleaning ladies showed up days early. If other options had been available we would have definitely changed location. Pictures are very decieveing of this property. I would not recommend this home unless house is completely redone.

Owner's Response: I work hard at keeping my home clean, updated and inviting for every family/group that stays. I'm sorry that you were not happy with my home, but most guests are very pleased with their stays. I admit, it can be difficult during the summer season to keep up with the small problems that may develop. However, as soon as they are reported they are corrected in a timely manner. To your specific concerns: All appliances in my home are in good, clean, working order. The front door has a push button code to allow tenants to enter easily. For some reason it was not working when you arrived and it was immediately replaced once reported. No one reported the drain issue to me but this has been fixed. All towels are washed and dried upon tenants departure by professional cleaning people. Children's toys, beach toys, books, sippy cups, playscape, portable crib, safety gates and blankets are all provided, creating a child-friendly space. My home does include many glass decorations throughout. If these are deemed unsafe around a child in the home, they can simply be placed in closets or on higher shelves. Garbage bags and barrels are provided throughout my home for all guests' needs. A professional crew leaves my home clean and sanitary for each family's arrival on Sunday afternoons. My apologies for the crew coming early, but your departure was was not per the usual schedule which I rearranged to suite your needs. The crew forgot and showed up on their usual Sunday morning schedule. I have very few rules for my renters, but above all, I simply ask that my tenants respect my property (ex: returning items to where they were originally found, not leaving dirty diapers or trash on counter tops, not removing items from my home and telling me when there is a problem or something is broken by accident by a guest). I am very proud of my home on Martha's Vineyard and find my guests feel it is clean, safe, modern and comfortable. I look forward to sharing it and its' joys with many more families.

Spacious and awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

I love this house! I have rented this home a few summers in a row and keep coming back because it is such an amazing house! The home is very spacious and spread out and the location is outstanding... only 2 minutes from the best beach on MV. There are great ammenties in the house including a hot tub on the deck for late nights under the stars, bikes, beach chairs, coolers, bbq grill. It has a very homey comfortable feel and the owners are so awesome and have kept this home in impeccable condition...very clean! Highly recommend this for your next summer vacation!!!
