About Kelly Silva
We are the Silva family from Taunton, MA. We have two children and a dog. Since 2013, my husband had been working in Martha's Vineyard, and he heard about the property for sale in Aquinnah. Of course, we fell in love with the land right away. That is when we decided to build a home there, and with a few hiccups along the way, we managed to finish our dream house on the island.
Kelly Silva purchased this House in 2014
What makes this House unique
We provide a beach pass, walking or driving to use for Philbin Beach and access to park where there are signs in Aquinnah that say, "Resident Permit Parking." You will need to pick up your pass at the Aquinnah Town Hall, but it will be paid for by the owner.

The Silva's were awesome host, their home was amazing and its location screamed you must relax and enjoy being laidback! We were serenaded by the frogs in the pond, birds chirping in the trees and crickets at night. I can't say enough good things about our experience.
Fantastic location away from the crowds
Overall an excellent experience. Philbin Beach was a 4 minute drive and the lighthouse 2 minutes down the road from the beach. The owners made arrangements for us to have a beach pass. Overall very clean and plenty of room for our family. Looking forward to renting again in the future.
The home and property are beautiful and inviting! Staying in Aquinnah is a nice escape from the crowds!
Super clean home with beach access!
Our group had a great time staying at the Silva’s house. The house itself was very clean and had all the amenities one could want. Access to Philbin beach was definitely a big plus, the outdoor shower was lovely, and staying up island was quiet and relaxing. Kelly was very easy to communicate with and answered any questions really quickly. Our only suggestion would be to stock the house with a few more blankets, it gets chilly at night! Wonderful time and highly recommended!
Wonderful Trip! Can’t wait to go back!
The Silva House is terrific! We had a wonderful stay. The house is beautiful, everything was immaculate and the setting is perfect. We also appreciate the time the Silva’s took to get us a beach permit for Philbin Beach. It made a big difference. I have traveled to Martha’s Vineyard countless times over the decades but this may have been the best trip ever thanks to the Silva House.
Relaxing Family Trip!
Had a wonderful time staying in Aquinnah on our Vineyard visit. Kelly and Don’s house was clean, comfortable, and perfect for our family. The setting could not have been anymore peaceful and relaxing. We were so close to the beautiful views from the Aquinnah cliffs, and just a car ride away from many great restaurants and beaches.
