About The Owner

We bought this home because we fell in love with the Vineyard and hoped to build a family tradition around summer vacations here. We wanted to find a place that our four children would love as much as we do. We've just completed a major renovation with the needs of our large family (and visiting friends) in mind.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Edgartown Area

Our home is unique because it is right in the middle of Katama, close to the bike path, bustling Edgartown and South Beach, and yet it has the peace and tranquility of an Up-Island location. Once you turn onto our sandy, tree-lined driveway, you forget everything else and just relax!

Two weeks in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this property for two weeks in the middle of July.

The house and grounds were clean, modern and very private. The pool was fabulous - very clean.

We brought two bikes with us and rented two more on the island - delivered to our door and picked up when we were done with them.

We rarely used our car and biked the short distance into Edgartown to shop and eat, to South Beach and over to Main Street for ice cream.

This is a great property and location for families.

The owners were accommodating and interested in us having the best possible time on the Island.

They provided information over the phone and via a book, maps and guides at the house.

I would recommend this property.

Terrific location -- 1.5 landscaped, private acres just steps from the Herring Creek bike path. Enjoy the peace of the Western Island without sacrificing the convenience of Edgartown! Quick bike ride to the historic town of Edgartown and shopping, and quick ride to South Beach, Martha's Vineyard premier Atlantic Ocean beach.
