About the property

Brilliant Sunsets over Outer Harbor North Neck Chappy- Walk To Beach and Mooring

Water views from the top deck and spectacular sunsets from everywhere in this peaceful vacation home facing the Edgartown lighthouse. Best spot for an unobstructed view of the July 4th fireworks-set off in the harbor in front of the house!

Walk several minutes down our private path to the sandy beach with its calm, swimmable waters. Tie your boat to our mooring - included with the rental. Surf cast at the popular 'Gut' beach just 1/2 mile down the road. Play golf on the beautiful small course just 1/3 mile away. East Beach - the best ocean beach on Chappy for swimming (no undertow) - is 1½ miles away and has kayaks, paddle boards and canoes for rent.

Relax in our quiet, secluded setting with over two acres of flower gardens and blueberries and beach plums to pick. There is ample space for summer games. The Nature Preserve with hiking and bike trails abuts the property.

The home's large windows provide lots of ventilation and beautiful views in every direction. It is an upside-down house with living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath upstairs, and three bedrooms, full bath and separate laundry room downstairs. The 34 x 16 living/dining room has a beamed cathedral ceiling, skylights and fans. The large separate kitchen has a pass-thru window with counter in the adjoining room, and a door to the patio and outside shower. We have WiFi internet, excellent cell reception and Cable TV. End the day watching the sun as it sets over Edgartown harbor followed by star gazing.

The house is wonderful also for an off-season getaway as it has heating.

Great sunsets, private, lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to let you know that we really, really enjoyed (loved!) our week in your Chappy home in July! It was absolutely perfect for our family in every aspect - the privacy, the beautiful flowers, the space, the view, the furniture, everything! My kids loved the bird feeders and spent so much time bird watching! The awning provided the perfect morning reading spot. And you should have seen me with that waffle maker - I was a real waffle pro by the end of the week! We couldn't recommend this house and this location more. It's the best sunset spot we have found yet on the Vineyard.

House lovely,owner difficult

  • 2 of 5

Last year we stayed at this home and was disappointed when the fireplace didn't work.

I called the owner to let her know and instead of being apologetic, she questioned why we were using the fireplace in August and the next day sent a fire cleanup company, which didn't find anything, then had work done on the house after we left and accused us of stealing items from the home.

We didn't return our security deposit and didn't give an explanation for 2 months the contract requires security deposits to be returned.

Very sad way to end an otherwise enjoyable stay.

Owner's Response: The security deposit was not returned - a rarity for me - due to smoke damage caused by the flue not being opened. The fireplace had just been inspected and cleaned. The smoke cleanup company did find smoke damage and the house was cleaned after the tenants left. All receipts were submitted to the traveler who was fully aware of the damages caused. Unfortunately the cost of the cleanup far exceeded the security deposit that was given.

Spacious, bright and warm Chappy home!

  • 5 of 5

We are ocean lovers and fisherman! This home offers close proximity to the ocean for all possible water activities as well as a home base, just full of comfort! It is open and inviting, with great art, books, an absolutely delightful and spacious kitchen by the way, and a lovely, beautifully landscaped lot. This is also the perfect home for the fisherman. Being on Chappy, means there is no need to take the ferry back and forth. That means fishing, day and night, is available for you at all spots on Chappaquiddick . There is nothing like being the first and only fisherman to some of the best Chappy fishing spots, After fishing, if you choose a night in Edgartown, the ferry will get you there in no time. A walk around Edgartown, is an easy walk to all the lovely restaurants and shops. All in all, this home offers you everything you could possibly want in a vacation home. Thank you to Deborah -- we will definitely be back!

Summer Rental

  • 5 of 5

We are long time Chappy renters. We've been vacationing in this beautifully appointed home and landscape since 2009.It provides a wonderful gathering point.Kids can play in the large field free from mosquitoes. The outdoor shower is the perfect end to a day at the beach. Viewing the setting sun from the roof top deck is a daily ritual for us.The accompanying photos speak to the pride the owner injects to every aspect of the property. L&K
