Vineyard Haven Estate Rental Photos and Description

Down island rural estate home at Malabar Farm in Tisbury very close to town.

The Stoney Hill Road House is located at Malabar Farm, a boutique horse farm catering to dressage lessons and trail riding. The house is a post and beam masterpiece designed in the American craftsman style by critically acclaimed, local architect, Phil Regan of Hutker Architects. Completed in 2009, this 6,500 sf estate home has four formal bedrooms, three full and two half baths, two roll in showers and an outdoor shower. There are also three other rooms with fold out queen couches if your group exceeds eight adults. The primary architectural feature is the 1,000 sf Great Room which was hand crafted of fir, cherry, ash and cypress. The west wall is dominated by a massive stone fireplace and the east wall by a 20 foot long cherry bar which overlooks the chef's kitchen. The north and south walls are adorned by glass affording open views across fields and into the woods. No other houses can be seen from The Stoney Hill Road House.

In addition to super comfortable furniture and beds, the house has a high end whole home audio/video setup with lightning fast cable internet, Direct TV, Apple TVs with NETFLIX, HBO & SHOWTIME. Guests can play their own DIGITAL content over AirPlay. There are two separate TV Rooms and the master bedroom has a full surround sound theater.

There is also a full movie theater and bar that seats 12 comfortably and has a 10 ft diagonal projection screen and 7.4 surround sound audio.

Outside, there are north and south facing patios and the west end of the house has a screened porch for enjoying those beautiful summer nights without any insects. There is over an acre of manicured lawn that your kids of all ages will love.

There are Land Bank walking trails and the island bike paths are accessible from directly from the property, no driving necessary. However, a short drive of under five miles lands you in Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs or Edgartown for shopping, dining or sightseeing.

Perfect Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5

Stoneyhill is the ideal place to have a wedding, period. It offers the perfect trifecta of wedding services: the ceremony, the reception and the housing accommodations. From our perspective, this simplifies the planning considerably.

We found the accommodations to be awesome. The house is airy and spacious. It also has a number of goodies for the techie types like AirPlay speakers and a theater room that made one of our guests relive the Star Wars saga. The hammock, or as we called it, the magic hammock was a terrific surprise. It's magic because it only takes five minutes to put anyone to sleep.

The property is very private and the barn is a big differentiator as far as wedding venues are concerned. Our guests loved the rustic appeal, the caters found it to be very accommodative and the band loved the acoustics.

A number of our guests said that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. Part of this credit goes to the memorable food prepared by Chef Deon, the Boston band we hired (Encore) and of course the venue that put people in very spirited mood.

Our only recommendation to someone wanting to plan this event is to give yourself a year and a half lead time for the perfect event like we had.

Stoney Hill Road House exceeded our expectations in terms of its luxury and comfort!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Stoney Hill Road House from July 30 through August 6, 2016. Our party included four couples and my doggie. This was our first visit to Martha's Vineyard. After months of searching for the perfect property, we selected Stoney Hill Road House because it was spacious, airy, boasted a gourmet kitchen, and accommodated several adult couples. As we drove up and around the graveled path leading to the house, we were blown away by the property's unique architectural details and perfectly manicured grounds. Once inside the house, we continued to be impressed by the state-of-the-art technology features throughout, the clean and comfortable furnishings, the well-equipped gourmet kitchen (which includes a butler's pantry), the oversized bedrooms and bathrooms, and the amazing theater room. Darren (the super cool owner) gave us an extensive tour of the house, describing in detail its many features and amenities. As a person who enjoys luxury, Stoney Hill Road House definitely fit the bill. Darren remained readily available throughout the week to address any questions we had about the house or navigating the Vineyard. Stoney Hill Road House is conveniently located a short distance (about a 10-minute drive) from the heart of both Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. We so enjoyed ourselves that we have already reserved Stoney Hill Road House for next year. In fact, I intend to establish an annual tradition of renting Stoney Hill Road House to celebrate my birthday!!!

Reliably amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's fourth year staying at the Stoney Hill Road house, and every time is better than the last. The house is large, spacious, but still very comfortable and well appointed. In addition, the owners think of everything, they are very responsive to every question, and they even provide great tips on what to do to maximize your enjoyment of the island.

Another Incredible Stay At This Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We've rented houses both large and small for 15+ years on the Vineyard. This house and entire property cannot be beaten for larger groups and multiple family trips. It offers privacy both inside and out. The property is nestled back away from any other houses and roads. The views from the patio and exterior of the beautifully landscaped grounds are incredible. The horses and the nearby barn also give an added touch. Yet when you are outside anywhere on the property you feel like you are in a world of your own. The interior offers spaciousness to accommodate large groups for socializing as well as enough bedrooms to give everyone their own private space. It could not be more up to date with high tech. lighting and wifi, a theater room that you have to see to believe and flat screen TV's in almost every room. I could go on and on but suffice to say there was no hesitation when our group decided to return to this house for our last 2 summer vacations. And don't be fooled by the location, we have stayed in Edgartown for many years but the bang for your buck at this property makes it well worth the extra few minutes it takes you to get to South Beach, State Beach and any of the downtown areas. Stay hear once and you will be hard pressed to look elsewhere for your next trip to MV.

This is our third year in the Stoney Hill Road home and each year it just gets better. We use the house as a family vacation/family reunion and ages range from 14 to 84, with three generations sharing this home. The home has incredible architecture, is immaculately maintained, and has an outstanding layout which allows all of us to have our own private spaces while having ample gathering space for everyone. We use every square inch of this home - the massive lawns are perfect for playing ultimate frisbee or whiffle ball, the hammock is my perfect getaway for a quiet time listening to the birds - and nothing else (ok, I did hear the clip clop of a horse and rider who were on the trails near the great is that??)! After breakfast, we head out to the beaches - this year we hit Aquinnah, Bend in the Road Beach, and South Beach. The home is so nicely located that any beach is a short drive away. After a quick rinse in the outdoor shower, we head to the outdoor patio to gather for cocktails before dinner. We cook fabulous dinners in the gourmet kitchen - from Larson's outstanding swordfish to homemade pizzas. Nights are spent playing cards or Scrabble on the screened in patio. Then the adults go to bed and the younger generation heads downstairs to play shuffle board and watch movies in the home theater. I cannot say enough about this house or the owner. Darren is there to greet us every year and make sure everything is set. He checks in to make sure all is well during the week. This house has everything a vacationing family could ever want. It is truly an outstanding property that makes the vacation the best it can be.

A memorable vacation/wedding at Malabar Farm

  • 5 of 5

We were told by our son and future daughter in law, what a perfect location this property was for a vacation home and wedding. Everything about Malabar Farm exceeded our expectations.

With the magnificently crafted barn, the elegant tented reception area and the sprawling grounds full of meticulously cared for landscape design, it was like a day in Camelot. The spacious home on the property had every amenity imaginable. Beautifully decorated and immaculately maintained.

The landlord was gracious, informative and available if needed.

Aside from our son’s wedding, our favorite memory during our stay, was relaxing on the front patio on a cloudless breezy night watching the full strawberry moon cross the sky overhead on the summer solstice.

We highly recommend a stay at Malabar Farm!
