Eat out everyday at a different restaurant, from fine dining to snack bars, or pick up some fresh seafood to cook at home in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Watch beautiful sunsets while enjoying a glass of wine on Oak Bluffs Harbor or while relaxing comfortably at home with friends and family.

About Rebecca Carter

Thank you for checking out my listing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything about our stay in Martha's Vineyard was fabulous! Upon arrival the hosts had left us a welcome basket and the house was impeccably clean, warm, and inviting. The description of the listing was exactly as we experienced. The property manager, who also doubles as a Martha's Vineyard police officer, walked us through the entire home and was incredibly helpful with questions. Anything we needed was just a phone call away, but as it turns out we did not need a thing!



We had a large group and cooked most of our meals in the phenomenal kitchen. The bedrooms were large and comfortable and the basement bunk room was perfect for the two kids in our group.



Overall we had a great experience and would absolutely recommend this house!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented Rebecca's house for my mom's 80the birthday. We had a fabulous time! The pictures do not do the actual home justice. It was clean, beyond spacious and the grounds were just beautiful. In fact we are considering going back again next Summer with some friends. Rebecca was lovely to speak with on the phone and Claire, the caretaker could not have been more accomodating and willing to please. I would definitely recommend staying here for a relaxing vacation!

Not worth the money

  • 2 of 5

We stay @ HW rental luxurious properties every year and this is probably the best example of a rental property in which the staying experience is far different from that depicted on the HW website.

First, the bouquet:

Very easily accomodated our party of 12

Expansive property - with a horse farm next door and alpaca farm 2 houses away - makes for a nice walk

The brickbats:

Housekeeper is USELESS - not responsive and only responded after we touched base with the owner

The microwave and TV in the family room never worked during our stay

We complained about the MW day 1 and it was not repaired during our stay

The TV we wanted to use on our last day since it was raining - it did not work and we were given the excuse that the fuse blew because of lightening and that it was wired incorrectly

The kitchen has everything but one has to open the drawers to see the labels - they should be on the outside

Beautiful setting, comfortable set-up

  • 5 of 5

Loved that the house had so many different gathering spaces. It was the perfect place for our Board of Directors to relax after the Board retreat.

Beautiful beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is stunning, with a gorgeous large kitchen and plenty of room for our party of 20+. So much land and greenery around the house, a lot of room, a really nice pool and outdoor area that made for a stunning trip.

Rebecca was also very amenable, readily available and willing to help us with a couple of logistical issues we experienced on our side. I would definitely recommend this lodging and Rebecca herself. We had a wonderful time!
