Cute and quiet, responsive owners

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay at the Chilmark house. We do have some suggestions to better welcome your guests. Please consider providing dishwashing detergent, dish soap, paper towels, napkins, clearer welcome instructions (how to lock the French doors and use the outdoor grill for example). We also found when we arrived some dirty pans in the oven, dirty freezer, damp towels in the dryer and a broken coffee maker. There was advertised a microwave, but no microwave in the kitchen. Our daughter and her husband stayed in the upstairs bedroom — so cute but the mattress needs to be replaced. The leather chairs in the living room also need new pads. WIth all that said, Richard was very communicative and helpful with suggestions for things to do and solutions to some of our concerns. We truly enjoyed our time on the Vineyard.`

Owner's Response: Catherine... I wish you had brought up these concerns during our many correspondences when you were on island. The microwave is on premise but in the basement as many renters object to one these days for health reasons. Coffee makers do brake, but my caretaker brought you a new one within 24 hours as well as filters when you expressed displeasure in having to purchase them yourselves. I think you will be hard pressed to find a home rental that supplies paper towels etc but good luck finding one. Hotels may be another option. PS- For the record, you do not replace springs in vintage french club chairs.

Shabby chic beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing house. I loved the location! Being able to visit Chilmark beaches was a highlight of the trip. The home itself was delightful. I adored the owner's taste. The shabby chic feel was warm and inviting. All the beds were soft and comfortable. The coffee table books and scented candles made staying in a pleasure. There were many evenings we were content to curl up and read and listen to music! Happy there was a Sonos box! I enjoyed and appreciated every detail of this house. We were all sad to leave!

Gorgeous Home, Well Appointed, Uniquely Decorated, Beautiful Setting!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth summer in Martha's Vineyard. After several years of staying in Edgartown, we decided to venture "up island" and stay in Chilmark. The landscape near this rental is truly breathtaking. Everywhere you look are green hills surrounded by water. I couldn't keep my eyes off the scenery!

The home itself is just perfect.

The Chilmark General Store is just a half mile down and is fully stocked. Next door is the Chilmark Tavern - a BYOB spot with a sophisticated menu.

A lovely time in a classic Chilmark summer home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our in-laws for nearly two weeks, and though we were a smaller group than expected (our adult daughters could not join us at the last minute), it was obvious the home easily could have comfortable managed capacity occupancy. Well stocked, spacious property, clear directions to renters on what to do, and beautifully located for a healthy long walk to Menemsha, a perfect summer stay. The beds were comfortable, and all amenities as promised. Having owned on the Vineyard for many years, and this being our first stay NOT at our one home, this home made the transition to "renters" easy and welcome. Thank you!
