Gay Head House Rental Photos and Description

Stunning Architecture. 3 BR, 2 Bath Home On 13 Acres with Private Walking Trails

Beautiful home designed to create a relaxing oceanside environment. The house has a lovely LR with 2 sided fireplace, a wonderful open, high end kitchen with large new Sub-Zero refrigerator, and Wolf stove top, Thermador Oven, Miele dishwasher and black honed granite counter tops. The floors are polished and colorized concrete and the kitchen is open to the dining room and the LR is private but easily accessible from the Kitchen and DR.

On the first level is a large master bedroom with ensuite bath and a fireplace and 2 additional bedrooms each with a queen bed and a full bathroom is shared by these two bedrooms. Stairs up to the amazing tower with office. Kids like it on this level.

The house is set on 13 acres with two ponds and great walking trails right on the property.

There are also 2 mountain bikes at the house that you can use.

Outside there are peaceful decks on the first floor with table and chairs as well as two roof top decks where you can enjoy some special time alone or with family and friends. Walk to Philbin Beach on Moshup Trail. Access to the beautiful sandy beach is a 5 minute walk from the house. You will also receive parking stickers for the other beaches in Aquinnah. Lobersterville is a long sandy beach facing the Vineyard Sound. And Red Beach is a gentle beach perfect for young kids on Menemsha Pond.

Aquinnah has many places to visit while you are staying at this wonderful house including the historic Gay Head Lighthouse that is being moving back from the Gay Head Cliffs in the summer of 2015 to prevent its plunge into the sea due to erosion. The Gay Head Cliffs are a big attraction and on the way up to the cliff viewing area you will pass several shops and food places from hamburgers to sushi. The Aquinnah Shop has outdoor tables that offer amazing views.

Other beaches include Lobsterville on the north shore and a Menemsha Pond beach called Red Beach that offers young kids a fun and interesting place to play. You can then continue to the Menemsha Bike Ferry which takes you and your bikes over to the fishing village of Menemsha. There are two fish markets, a Texaco gas station with ice-cream and juice and sodas. In addition, there is fried food at the Bite, cafe fare at Bettlebung, groceries at the Menemsha Store and great food that the Homeport a seafood restaurant that's been there for 60 years. You can also go to the back door of the Homeport and order takeout food that you can eat at the outside tables.

An important note: Chilmark and Aquinnah are still "dry" towns. Meaning you have to buy your wine and beer in Oak Bluffs or Edgartown. Our Market in Oak Bluffs delivers to Aquinnah. So you won't have to leave your sanctuary.

Why Kristin Zern chose Aquinnah

Love the privacy and closeness to the ocean and beach. Love hearing the surf at night when everything is quiet in the house.

What makes this house unique

Property is on 13 acres of incredible land with 2 ponds and lovely trails throughout the land. This house was designed to be like a home in Santa Fe with adobe walls and concrete painted floors.A builder from Mexico actually came to the Vineyard to build the house the correct way. This home has so many places to meditate and relax and toss off the stress of off island world. The turret, on the second floor and the zen-like pool with stepping stones, the many decks off the first floor and second floor are ideal for relaxing, reading, reflecting on your life or just taking in the sun.
