''Unique and charming'' describes this island artist's home that has endless amenities and extras. This secluded, meandering Cape has stained glass windows, hardwood floors and all the details you'd expect from an original Vineyard cottage, except it's new. Open living/dining great room with antique and contemporary furniture, modern kitchen, sun porch and huge game room with pool table. Wrap-around front porch with hot tub, trellised cozy back deck with outdoor shower and spiral staircase to an expansive third deck make it impossible to stay indoors. This is not your average rental property! Walk to Edgartown Great Pond, bike to town and South Beach (about a mile and a half).

The Sea Glass Cottage - A Very Special Find
This was our 3rd year in this amazing house. We have been coming to the Vineyard for 30 years; and therefore, have seen our share of Vineyard rentals along the way. Of all the rentals, this house is by far the best and meets 100% of my very picky criteria. First the basics - the location is great for getting wherever you want to go - a few minutes to Morning Glory (yum), South Beach & Norton Point, and
Edgartown. A lovely manicured lawn - perfect for croquet. The house itself is well maintained, perfectly decorated so that you feel at home, but not as though you are invading someone personal space. Everything you need in the kitchen is there. The outdoor shower is the best - we never use anything but. But wait there's more! Its the extras that make this house so fantastic. Hot tub (clean and always ready to use), cottage/rustic screened in porch (great for reading in the late afternoon), what we call the billiard room - a fun place to have drinks and play a game of pool and last (but not least) wonderful decks (including rooftop) for relaxing and enjoying afternoon libations or early morning coffee.
So hope this helps others to know this is a special find. And we look forward to next summer and many more to come.
Great to hear - thank you so much! Looking forward to welcoming you back next year.
Amazing home, beautiful Interior, clean, well maintained.
Had a fantastic stay with our family of four. Everything was in great order when we arrived. The bedrooms are charming and have great light. The hot tub was very clean and the perfect temp. The owner, elizabeth was very prompt in responding to emails and very kind. I would love to come back one day soon. We had to rent linens which ended up being fine and very easy with the link she provided. The beach towels from the rental place were kinda small and scratchy, so if you like softer ones bring your own. But the sheets were fine. Bed was comfy, our children slept well. Don't leave delicious fudge out on counter or ants will get it! I'm Sure this happens in All beach houses, but something a city person doesn't pay attention to. Highly recommend this home for a relaxing vacation can easily spend a week or a month here! A quick bike ride into edgartown or south beach. Right in between both. A perfect location.
Thank you for the kind words, and so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay in the house...and visit to the island. Hope to welcome you back soon!
The pictures didn't do this house justice and we liked it already! We had a great trip and would love to rent this house again in the near future!
Thank you for your beautiful house. My mother and daughter loved it.
Glad they had a lovely stay, and hope you are able to join them for a future visit to the island!
Gorgeous home! Comfortable and beautifully decorated!
We stayed at Sea Glass Cottage two weekends ago with 7 adults (3 couples plus one). We were all amazed when we arrived to find such a beautiful, spacious home with such charm and appeal. The pictures do not adequately portray how gorgeous this property is, both inside and out. The layout was perfect for 7 adults - plenty of decks, indoor space and privacy. The grounds were beautiful and the outdoor spaces so appealing! The house was immaculate and the layout was unique. We most certainly will return to stay here again!!
Great charm, space and location!
Sea Glass Cottage was a great rental. The house is very unique with lots of charm. There is plenty of space to spread out both in the house and on one of the numerous patio and deck areas -- making it a perfect choice for extended families or small groups who don't always want to be in each other's hair. The hot tub was great at the end of the day. The house was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We hope to visit again!!
Our home feels very secluded yet is about a mile and a half from South Beach and Edgartown.
