About David Graff

My wife and I are both 'recovering lawyers'. I work for Google, and my wife is a documentary filmmaker. We have two energetic, active, enthusiastic, teenagers), and love the island.

We've been coming to the island for almost 25 years. Probably an understatement to say we love it; we really feel at home and relaxed when we are on MV. We know a lot about the island, and believe West Tisbury is one of the best, and most fun, places to stay. Happy to suggest things to do, restaurants, beaches to visit, activities for kids, things to see, and etc.

David Graff purchased this house in 2011

Why David Graff chose Martha's Vineyard

This is our dream location. We've rented and vacationed all over the island, and can say without a doubt that this location is our favorite. The house is secluded and private; it sits on two acres, and abuts acres of land bank property. Trails lead to Blackwater Pond Reservation, the Hoft Field House, and Wompesket Preserve, which offer great, scenic hikes (and awesome trail runs) and fishing. The house is a very short drive (less than 3 miles) to Lambert's Cove beach (a perfect family beach, as the waves are mild). Its also close to Vineyard Haven, making grocery shopping or last minute errands easy to accomplish.

We think of it as a modern farmhouse: private, wooded, a bit of a rustic feel, but with modern amenities, including a renovated kitchen with a high-end stove, floating island, granite counter tops and plenty of entertainment space. Plenty of room to spread out, 3 full Bathrooms make visits by larger groups comfortable, and modern conveniences like cable and high-speed internet let you keep in touch with the outside world.

Staying in West Tisbury provides a unique island experience. Enjoy nature, a sense of farm living, easy access to the beach, and all the modern conveniences.

Fun fact: John Hoft Road (the road leading to the house) is an 'ancient way', the legal definition of which is a “[w]ay used as such from time immemorial, and no record of their origin was known to exist” (told you I was a lawyer). This means it was cleared sometime before 1846, most likely by the original owner of the surrounding land, farmer John Hoft. The surrounding paths were likely used by Hoft and, before that, the indigenous Wampanoag tribe, as far back as the early 17th century.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at David's place in July 2014 and had a fantastic time. It's a very private property, but is still 5 minutes from the grocery store and 10 minutes from Vineyard Haven. The house itself was plenty big and was in great shape, except for a few burned out light bulbs here and there. Overall, I would definitely recommend this property!

Visitors never tire of the natural beauty of the island of Marthas Vineyard. From bustling Oak Bluffs to the pristine beaches of Aquinnah, there is truly something for everyone on this relaxed island. Miles of bike trails provide a perfect spot for the beginning rider or the adventure cyclist. In busy August, bring a blanket and a picnic and catch a film, or an outdoor concert. Try your luck at the county fair or just spend the hours away from it all. This is an ideal family vacation or perfect romantic get away. Bring a book and a towel and spend your time deciding which beach is truly your favorite.
