About Joanne Lachowitz

Recently Retired Professional couple enjoying life, family and 8 grandchildren. After renting and vacationing in our Katama rental house on Martha's Vineyard for nearly 20 years, we decided to purchase a home in Hidden Cove and moved to Martha's Vineyard as full time residents in 2002. We sold the Katama vacation house to our children and managed it for 10 years, only to became full time owners again in 2012. The house is ideal for vacationing couples and families who want to experience and enjoy this beautiful island. The house is beautifully maintained and well equipped. We hope you will come and enjoy the Vineyard while renting our little house.

Joanne Lachowitz purchased this house in 1982

Why Joanne Lachowitz chose Katama

Conveniently located (1.5mi.) to center of Edgartown, (1.8mi.) to South Beach -great surf, (1mi) to Edgartown Great Pond -great for small motor craft, kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, and clamming. Overall a pleasant location to walk, jog or bike to town, beach, pond, farm stand, library etc.

What makes this house unique

No long traffic lines to get to beaches, quaint Edgartown village, and up-island towns. Easy access to launch a kayak, canoe, sail, motor, or other small craft to the pristine, no crowds, barrier beach of the Edgartown Great Pond.

To accommodate multiple couples, we can provide king beds in 2 or 3 bedrooms upon request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fall visit

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Vineyard many times in the fall, but this was the latest we have ever come. It was absolutely beautiful! We had some rain but overall it was great! The cool weather was refreshing coming from Louisiana. Our property rental was comfortable and cozy. Joanne was super accommodating and provided everything we needed. The delicious welcome basket was greatly appreciated. If planning a visit to the vineyard don't hesitate booking Joanne's property.

Comfortable, convenient and exceptionally priced.

  • 5 of 5

An excellent home with 3 bdrms and 2 baths plus the outside shower. Our Fall week was warm and sunny. The wrap around deck was made for sitting in the sun! The house was extremely clean and well appointed. Joanne was wonderful to work with from our first email right through to the end of our stay. I like the fact that she is on island should we have any concerns.(Of which there were none).Her welcome basket was an unexpected treat! Having vacationed numerous times on MV we found this house was ideal for us (4 adults). Conveniently located near friends, some might take issue with the nearness of the town property. We had no problems. There was no noise or vehicles. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to returning ourselves. Thanks again to Joanne.
