Beautiful, Spotless and Nicely Tucked Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for two weeks in September. We found the location perfect for trips to Circuit Ave, golf course, airport , Edgartown and Vineyard Haven. The house itself was extraordinarily clean, the kitchen was fabulous and the rest of the house was lovely.

The owners were very helpful and even arranged for us to get extra cable service so we could watch golf and tennis! We would recommend this property to family and friends.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hello future renters!,

My son got married July 19, we had people fly from Polan, San Francisco, New York and Los Angelas. All this to say is that I needed a home that would be hosting a BBQ prior to the wedding! I was so happy to arrive and meet Gary at the house. The house was more then I had thought to be! Very clean, very spacious!, great rooms with fantastic views!l The house was big enough for 8 family members to sleep! Each had their own bathroom and privacy!. Kitchen is big enough to host "Hells Kitchen" lol,,,,(I watch that show),,

My husband and I have no regrets renting this property, my children and friends were beside themselves when they saw the house!,,,I would recommend this house to anyone seeking a rental on the island.

best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

This home has two sections, an older part which is thoroughly updated, and a newer part which is more wide open in layout. The cabinets and trim are done by Gary, the owner, a highly skilled finish carpenter. The furniture and design is very tasteful, the home is on a private section of MV, and is VERY quiet. I have never seen a home so clean - it was impeccable. Easy access to Edgartown/Vineyard Haven hwy and airport. I would return without hesitation.

We rented this lovely home Aug 14-21 for our family of 6.

( 9 people with spouses and grand child). The floor plan was perfect for our extended family. It had many places to relax on a rainy day and nice deck for good days.The master bedroom suite was great. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks, tennis courts and daily bike rides from this convenient location.The home was very clean and the owner, Gary was a pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Location was ideal; less than 10 minutes away from all the best that MV has to offer ---- multiple beaches, vintage shops, art galleries, specialty grocers, choice restaurants and sightseeing. Easy access to OB, VH and Edgartown.

Accomodations were immaculate and spacious for our family of four;

Remodeled kitchen with high-end applicances; great outdoor space with multiple deck areas with unobstructed ocean views, outdoor shower and ample dining space with grill; quiet, serene area.

We are avid travelers with two "tween-age" children and have literally stayed in vacation rentals across the globe; and would highly recommend this property.

Access to owners' kayaks and amenities of the community were an added bonus on the Sengekontacket Pond.

Overall, a very enjoyable experience including all interaction and correspondence with owner. Class act.
