Excellent get away in the offseason
The house is a short walk to Oak Bluffs but you don't feel like you're in the middle of town. Rooms were charming and plenty of space even for my party of 10. Our weather was great for 3/4 days but one day it was a bit cold (it's always a gamble late April/early May.) If you are heading here around the same time or late fall keep in mind these island houses are mostly summer homes and generally not insulated well for chilly days, so bring some warm clothes!
Had a few questions during the trip and the owners always got back to me in very short order. Overall a great trip, thank you for letting us stay!
Thanks so much for the kind words. Glad you had a great time and enjoyed our home!
Very nice house
Nice and big house, conveniently located. Lack of significant modernizations add the antique look and feel to the stay.
I LOVED THIS HOUSE!
We loved MV and we loved this house. It was perfect for two families to have a relaxing week together. Rent bikes from Martha's bikes and linens from Tammeky, get groceries from the Stop & Shop in Vineyard Haven and you're set! Perfect side yard for family games and perfect porch for reading a good book. We will be back!
Best stay so far on MV
We've stayed several places on the island with our large family and this is by far the best. Plenty of room for everyone, an eat-in kitchen, giant porch and large bedrooms. Best part is the short walk to town - the kids can scooter down without any complaints that it's too far! The house feels private but when you see the neighbors, everyone is friendly! Lots of room for kids to play in the yard or bike up and down the mostly quiet road. Outdoor shower is a must (don't ever rent on the island without one!). Everything about the house is great - we'll be back!
My entire family has been renting this house for the past few summers. It never lets us down.
This year brought updated landscaping and an even better view of the marina/sound, where you can watch the ferries come and go while you sip your coffee or wine, depending on time of day (or not).
The character could not be more Vineyard, inside and out. Oak Bluffs is an easy/beautiful/fun 5 min. walk from the house, as is east chop beach.
Can't wait for the end of August, when we return once more!!
James - we are so glad you and your family continue to enjoy our home on MV! We wish you many more years of making Vineyard memories!

Perfect MV home
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!!
