Why John and Valerie DeWitt chose West Tisbury

We have spent many summers on the Vineyard. It is a great place to have family vacations, romantic get-aways, or time alone. It's quiet here but accessible to beaches and towns by bike, car, or on foot.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in the Vineyard every year for the past 12 years. This amazing piece of paradise is everything and more. First and foremost the owners are wonderful to work with.

The location is impeccable. A mile from Long Point which is so beautiful we bought a Supporting Membership.

The home itself is cozy and comfortable. The beds are amazing. The view impeccable.

The three screen doors in the house allow the beautiful breeze to flow throughout.

The home is well kept and stocked with everything you could need.

I almost hesitate to write such a compelling review because this little gem should be kept a secret.

Thank you John and Valerie for the use of your little piece of paradise. I will never forget our week here.

Ann, Don & Jeremy

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My first visit to Martha's Vineyard could not have been better. This spacious home offered a relaxing getaway for my friends and I, far away from all the crowds on the island. Cooking and lounging on the private deck was ideal. It was so nice and quiet that it was easy to forget there are neighboring homes. The home's location allows for a leisurely stroll to the beach and easy access to the nearby running/biking trails. Running or biking to the famous Morning Glory Farm is about five miles away and quite pleasant. The larger towns and attractions on the island are only a short drive away. I highly recommend to those looking for a peaceful Martha's Vineyard vacation, and I will definitely be back!

Lovely spacious home - perfect getaway for groups!

  • 5 of 5

I've had the pleasure to stay here a handful of times over the past few years and it's been wonderful every time. The house is clean and well-stocked with beds and linens to sleep 8+. The back deck is perfect for lounging, grilling and an outdoor feast. Our group loves sitting in the great room, playing cards and having a few drinks, occasionally watching a movie on the huge TV on the rainy days. I'll be coming here for many, many years!

Nice house steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house, about a half hour walk through the woods and fields to a very secluded ocean beach. House has everything you could need in a vacation house, with ample parking and a nice back deck, and is toward the back of a quiet road. Located in central Martha's Vineyard, very close to the airport and bike paths as well.

Comfortable, modern home walkable to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent Memorial Day weekend exploring the Vineyard with our home base at this spacious house. The house comfortably sleeps at least ten, with a back deck perfect for grilling and enjoying the outdoors. The beach is about a mile away and provides incredible ocean access and a rare chance to look south on the Atlantic with nothing obstructing your view! The sites at Edgartown and Oak Bluffs are a short drive (or great bike ride!) away, and we were even able to walk to the house from the airport.

Don't forget to go to Larsen's for fresh oysters!

Long Point
Car: recommended

Long Point Wildlife Refuge is less than a half mile from the house at the end of our road, Vineyard Meadow Farms Road. The ocean at Long Point is approximately one mile from the house. Our home is on the south side of the Martha's Vineyard. We're also centrally located from the more active town life (Edgartown, Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs) to the quieter 'up-island' towns of Chilmark, Aquinnah, and Menemsha. Vineyard Meadow Farms Road is also adjacent to the bike path which leads to West Tisbury, Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, and Vineyard Haven.
