Aquinnah Skye is our family's vacation dream house

  • 5 of 5

We've loved all our trips to Martha's Vineyard, but this year's was the best. We stayed at the exquisite Aquinnah Skye with our family, including our 16 month old grandchild, Sophia. We choose our summer rentals online, vet them very carefully and have high expectations. Aquinnah Skye exceeded them all! The house has great character and is beautiful inside and out. The furnishings and fabrics are lovely as well as extremely comfortable. The kitchen is modern, large and very well equipped from a lemon zester to a restaurant-quality stove. The house is suffused with light and cool breezes due to its many windows and doors. There was someplace for everyone to be together (living room, tv room, sunroom) or to sit quietly and read or contemplate nature (two decks downstairs and one upstairs). The house is surrounded by flower beds, trellises and annuals which Sophia loved to water with her watering can. We chose to cook at home every night, each one of us taking responsibility for planning and cooking at least one dinner. And for dessert the Orange Peel Bakery is just around the corner and Chilmark Chocolates is down the road apiece. We got wonderful sandwiches and pizza at the Chilmark General Store, just ten minutes from the house.

If Aquinnah Skye was our own home, we can't imagine what we would do to make it more perfect. Thank you Lee and Tod for letting us borrow your beautiful home and make it our home for a week.

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

Excellent in every way. Very clean, very well-equipped and very well-maintained. You can really see all the care that goes into this home. Our two favorite aspects were the location - so private and so close to the beach - and the charm of the house, which was very appealing - a giant step above all the other rentals we looked at. We would highly recommend this house and definitely return again.

Perfect Martha's Vineyard Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had such a lovely time staying at Aquinnah Skye this summer! The house is conveniently located to two beautiful beaches, but is far removed from the hustle and bustle of Vineyard Haven and the other towns. The house itself is just lovely. It's spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked with colorful dishes and all the cookware you could possibly need. We were able to really make ourselves at home. The house is also immaculately clean and well kept, with charming details throughout. I would highly recommend this for any large group who wants a relaxing retreat in a quiet part of the Island. We loved the house so much that we hope to make this an annual trip!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I am in love with the house and location. I used to visit the island on the boat and this was my first time in the rental. Isolated from hordes of tourists and very peaceful. Kitchen is very well equipped . I will return. ..
