About Natalie

Our family currently resides in south eastern Massachusetts. We are honest, good-natured people and our young family keeps us very busy. The island is easily accessible for us and we like to take a hands on approach to providing our visitors with a delightful stay.

Why Natalie chose Edgartown

As I child I grew up visiting Chappy with my family. In the '80's my father built our home, the Chappy Delight. I always enjoyed the uniqueness of the island and now our three young children can experience those same joys. Our home is where our heart is and we would like to share it with you to create a one of a kind vacation.

What makes this house unique

There's so much to love about our home. My favorites would have to be the deck and 3 season porch. The deck offers a beautiful view of the yard and an opportunity to listen to the summer sounds. The 3 season porch is my favorite place to nap and read a book. In the evening, we like to look at the stars and listen to the crickets. Gazing up at the beautiful sky while washing up in the outdoor shower is pretty awesome as well!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send along a quick thank you for sharing your lovely home with our family. We found the house clean and comfortable with all the amenities we could ever need. Thank you so much for the lovely gift basket in the refrigerator. We have spent many vacations on Chappy, but this one was special in a big way because of your beautiful home. Thanks again. Hope to rent from you again in the future.

• Chappy is a quant quiet island with no form of industry and commercialism. Enjoy the beaches for sun bathing, swimming and fishing. Kayaking and canoeing along with many other nature tours are offered to keep you busy. Explore the many walking and hiking trails or play a set of tennis at the community center. You may park and walk on to East Beach which is located just over the infamous Dyke Bridge or you may purchase an OSV (over-sand vehicle permit) from The Trustees of Reservations. Or, head down the Chappy Point for a quick dip or to sunbathe as you watch all the boat action in one of the busiest and most beautiful harbors in our area.

• Chappy Ferry is located about 2 miles from the Chappy Delight, walk, run, bike or drive to the ferry (3 minutes dock to dock) and head over to historical Edgartown for shopping, museum tours, lighthouse tour and many top-rated restaurants and bars.

• From here you can make your way up-island to many other wonderful towns in Martha’s Vineyard, Oaks Bluffs features a bustling night life, the oldest flying carousel in the country and shopping. From there move on to Vineyard Haven for more exploring. Going even further you can explore the renowned red-clay cliffs in Aquinnah at Gay Head Cliffs and beach. Enjoy reveling in the most-desired location on the island to watch the sun setting, Menemsha. Bring a bottle of wine and some fried clams a beach towel and your camera and be prepared to be amazed!

Wonderful home and great for kids!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented Chappy Delight this past summer and it was spacious, set up very well for kids and had a separate screened in porch full of games, which they loved. We have been staying on Martha's Vineyard for over 10 years and this was by far one of the cleanest homes we have stayed in. Another plus for us was being minutes away from Cape Poge and Wasque beaches, Mytoi and the Chappy Rec Center. The owner was very good at providing information prior to our arrival and had a binder of information for use to use once we arrived.

We would certainly recommend this home to anyone and hope to go back soon!

Very comfortable, spacious home, great setting!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks this Fall and loved it! The home was well furnished and very well maintained. The living areas were spacious and comfotable and the kitchen easy to utilize. One feature that we didn't expect to have to utilize was the whole house generator. But when the power went out during a Nor'easter , we barely noticed the pause for the generator to kick in. While Chappy may not be for everyone, it was perfect for us! Thanks for making this very nice house available!

Great 2 week vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Chappy Delight has everything you need to enjoy a vacation. 2 of the 3 bedrooms are really large with ample closet space and storage space for your belongings. The master is smallish but quite comfortable with a great king size bed, lots more storage + ensuite bathroom. Fabulous outdoor shower; open living area, immaculately clean, kind owners. We stayed with our daughter + another couple with 2 kids - plenty of room to be together or apart! Lovely yard and well-equipped kitchen. There was even a welcome basket for us when we arrived. 10-15 minutes by bike to ferry; 3 minutes by car to ferry. LOVED the AC; it was hot + muggy but we were very comfortable. Would not have slept nearly as well without it. Would stay again in a heart-beat.
