Perfect MV home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful house last summer. It's close to town, and a short walk to the Jetty Beach, which is small but perfect for the children. Lots of harbor traffic to watch, which brings some small waves to play in.

The house is lovingly maintained by helpful, attentive owners. It is on a wonderfully quiet, yet convenient, street. We walked around a lot, and everyone was so friendly. Don't miss walking down E Chop Rd to watch the sunrise. Spectacular!

Our family included 4 adults and 3 small children, but we were not crowded at all. There is so much space, not just in the house, but also in the surprisingly large yard. But it doesn't matter since you won't want to be anywhere but the large, comfortable porch!

We typically try to vacation in a new spot each year, but we all loved this house and MV so much we wanted to go back. The highest compliment from our finicky crew!!

Thank you, Lori and Mike, for an unforgettable vacation!!

Fantastic Couples Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous couples weekend on Martha's Vineyard. I just had to sit down and write a review for this perfect vineyard home. First the house is a wonderful size, and super clean. Lovely hardwood floors, stunning wraparound porch, a full eat in kitchen, big bedrooms and a lovely side yard. The location could not have been better. We were central to everything that you could want to do and more. One block to the water, a very quick walk to town - we did not need the car all weekend! Another plus was the owners, they were great to deal with and obviously take wonderful care of the home. This home would also be perfect for families. We are talking about having a family get together there this summer. I never take the time to write a review but I just had to .. MV is a very special place and this is a very special home!

Oak Bluffs? More like Oak Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for staying around Oak Bluffs, but without all the craziness of staying on or near Circut Ave.

Located just a short 5-10 walk into town, this house just oozed MV out of every pore. From its cape cod style, to it's perfect porch with water views, you always feel at home here.

There's a small public beach just down the road that's perfect for families, and Oak Bluffs itself has more shopping and dining than any other town on the island.

I can't think of any negatives. Especially with that outdoor shower. Heaven!!

beautiful, charming and very well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been visiting The Vineyard for the past 23 years. This property is by far the nicest place we have stayed. It is walking distance from town, but very private and quiet. Just perfect. The owners, Mike and Lori are extremely responsive to requests and it is clear that they take great pride in this amazing home. We have stayed here for the last 3 years and plan to stay for many more......

perfect vineyard vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great house. Nice comfortable rooms, great kitchen and an incredible porch. Grandsons had a large yard to play in and we were able to relax yet keep an eye on them. Close to beach and town,an easy walk. Going back in 2013.

An Island Treasure

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with my family. It was everything I wanted it to be and more. Filled with all the charm and character of a Vineyard Cottage yet containing every modern amenity. What an easy walk to town and the water! Since I was there celebrating my son's wedding it was very important to me that I was able to have plenty of space. We enjoyed having a cocktail while sitting with family and friends on that gorgeous porch. The convenient location made navigating to all of our destinations a breeze. The neighborhood was very quiet yet you are so close to all the great restaurants and sights. This was my first time visiting your island and staying at your home made the trip perfect! I wouldn't hesitate recommending your cottage to anyone.
