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.

Wonderful spot. Very very clean place
Everything as advertised. Perfect experience.
Away from it all!
Stayed at this place for a long weekend and loved everything about it. The location is perfect if you want to stay away from the crowds and just relax. The owners were very nice and always responsive. The house was very clean, one of the cleanest houses i have ever rented. I wish we could stay there longer! Weekend was not enough to fully enjoy this gem!
Beautiful up island home!
Our stay at the Silva's was wonderful. The house is clean and well stocked with everything to make a stay very comfortable. The smoke detector was beeping when we arrived, they do that, I called and it was fixed within an hour. The Silva's always responded quickly in all of the correspondence before and during our stay. The property is very quiet, which was exactly what I wanted. This is not a "walk to town" house, but a lovely, quiet home that makes you just want to sit back and relax. If I visit Martha's Vineyard again I would certainly consider staying here!
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!
