THREE BEDROOM COTTAGE (Sleeps 3-6 )

MARTHA'S VINEYARD

VERY REASONABLY PRICED!!

GREAT LOCATION, PET FRIENDLY, FAMILY FRIENDLY

10 min walk to Martha's Vineyards beautiful State Beach and 5 minute bike ride to Edgartown’s shops and restuarants! Bright sunny 3 bedroom cottage, right off Beach RD, adjacent to the Island’s extensive bike path connecting you to the all of Martha's Vineyard's 5 towns and beaches. This location can’t be beat! Perfect for a family's easy week at the beach. You won’t be looking for parking, just stroll or bike to the beach in the morning. Miles of wooded trails with water view across the street for a morning walk or jog, then a quick rinse off in the outside shower.

GETTING AROUND

In the evening walk, bike or take the bus to either Oak Bluffs or Edgartown for dinner and nightlife. The bus stop is 50 feet from your front door and comes every 15 min in the summer. There is parking for two cars but many guests don’t even bring a car, you don’t really need one from this location. It's only a 15 minute bus ride from the Oak Bluffs ferry and the bus accommodates bikes.

ROOMS & LAYOUT

Front door enters into an open plan living room - dining room with a sectional couch, futon recliner chair, cable TV and DVD player. Continue down the hall to a separate, well stocked kitchen on left with all the cooking utensils, pots and pans etc…

Three bedrooms and bathroom with laundry are off the hall past the kitchen.

Bedroom One - Has a queen bed and plenty of storage in the closet. Two west facing windows fill this room with beautiful late afternoon light. This room has A/C to keep you cool on warm nights..

Bedroom Two - has a full bed, AC. North facing windows.

Bedroom Three - Has a two twin beds and A/C to keep you cool on warm nights.

AMMENITIES

Beautiful pine floors. Cable TV, New Blue Ray player, 32 inch flat screen TV and WIFI included.

Private backyard perfect for BBQ with ample lawn furniture, tables and chairs. Rinse off in the new outdoor shower after a swim at State Beach.

HISTORY

The cottage is part of a complex of buildings which once made up the historic Martha’s Vineyard COOP Dairy. This sunny three bedroom once served as it's carriage house. The Martha’s Vineyard COOP Dairy was an operating dairy and milk bottling facility until the mid 1960's. During its hay-day, all the island’s farmers brought their milk to be processed and bottled here. The owners unit was the Dairy’s barn and is adjacent to the carriage house.

We are year round residents and would be glad to help out with some tips to make your stay a memorable one.

Have a great summer!

Mike and Sandy

HERE'S A FEW FUN THINGS GOIN' ON NEARBY

BIKING - Great location as a base camp for biking the island. Bring your own bike or easily rent one, bike rental shop is just a 10 minute walk toward town, they also will deliver.

FISHING - Just a 1/2 mile away the bend in the road beach offers some of the best surfcasting on the Vineyard, head another 1/2 mile down the road and drop a line off big bridge, great spot for Stripers and Blues.

CLAMMING - Just a ten minute walk is Sengekontacket pond by far one of the very best clamming spots on the Island.

CRABBING - 5 minute walk toward the beach is a colvert where the salt pond rushes under the road. Great spot for catching delicious blue crabs.

KITE SURFING - Well known for its great windsurfing, Sengekontacket pond is also quickly becoming known as one of the best places in the east coast for kite surfing. Vineyard native, Rob Douglas, earned the title of fastest kite sailor in the world & can be regularly found rippin' it up on Sengekontacket pond.

KAYAKING - On the far side of the State Beach, 10 min by bike, Kayaks can be rented by Island Spirit Kayak. They also offer great day and sunset tours island wide.

BRIDGE JUMPING - One mile down the road, nothing like Jumping off State Beach's big bridge! You'll regularly find kids and adults alike enjoying the 10' plunge into the cool waters of the Vineyard Sound on a hot summer day.

SNORKELING

Nothing like the Caribbean, but the waters here are typically, surprisingly clear. Floating around the rock jetties of either of the two bridges along State Beach you can ride the current in or out of Sengekontacket pond. Small fish, conch, starfish, crabs and the occasional Stripped Bass are your quarry. The free ride in the current is worth the effort. After 15 years living here this is still one of my favorites on a hot day!

great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a pretty basic cottage but has a lovely outdoor shower in a nice private yard. It's very well located - close to South Beach, Edgartown and Oak Bluffs - and comfortably housed a family of five. This is our second year here and we'll be back!

Cozy House 10 minutes from the beach

  • 4 of 5

This was a comfortable place to stay for our visit to Martha's Vineyard. The cottage is located right off the bike path and is only a 10 minute walk from a beach. Great house for visiting with a young child and a dog as there is a nice fenced in yard and the windows of the kitchen and living room provide a good view of the entire yard. Great ambiance in the backyard to sit, read and relax. The hosts were very prompt answering questions and were very helpful.

One negative was that a few things in the house are a bit worn and some windows had missing or loose screens which let bugs in if we wanted them open (I feel that if we asked the host they probably would have fixed the screens but we just never did)

Overall we had a really nice stay and would definitely return

Cute Cottage

  • 4 of 5

It was quiet, affordable, and within walking distance to stuff. It was too cool for us to enjoy the outside much but had a great private yard with a grill, lots of seating, a fire pit, and lighting. Owners were very responsive and nice. Would highly recommend this as a great cottage stay.

A great vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

This is a really cute, convenient place and we had a great time. The beach is so close, the bike pathway across the street was great for walking my puppy and it was a short walk to the 'triangle' for coffee etc. Being fenced/hedged in it feels very private and safe and quiet. Mike was very helpful with any questions I had. Yes, it's got some wear, but I understand the owners are working on some updates which I'm sure will be great. Thinking of booking for next year for sure!

Decent location, but a bit tired.

  • 2 of 5

This rental was in a decent location and is close to State Beach, however it's a good 25-30 minute walk to downtown Edgartown. The property is pretty tired. While the essential things like the bathroom and kitchen were clean when we arrived, overall the property wasn't in the best condition. Cobwebs in the corners, old food in the drawer of the stove, stains on the floor, musty smell, chips in the tile, and very dirty fans and A/C units (although when we asked the owner to clean the A/Cs he was very responsive). The outside furniture was stained, the table was wobbly, and the yard was not inviting to sit in. This property is simply about the location, don't expect any other frills.

Owner's Response: Hi Julie, After proudly receiving 23 positive reviews over the years and achieving a 4.6 out of 5 star VRBO rating my wife, Sandy and I were of course very concerned to receive the first and only less than four star review of our property. We take great pride in hosting and after a detailed look with some of your suggestions in mind we have decided it's time to make some improvements. Hope you can return next year to enjoy them. All the best Mike and Sandy
