About Steve Church

My wife and I grew up on the Cape, and so frequented the Vineyard often. Since having a family, we have vacationed there many times. Offering tranquil scenery, beautiful beaches, expansive bike paths along the ocean, great towns, restaurants and nightlife, the Vineyard is truly the perfect location for a family getaway. We purchased a Vineyard property specifically to offer families an unforgettable vacation experience. With this in mind, we furnished it to mirror the luxury of a high end coastal resort, but with terrific amenities (e.g. private pool, kid's TV/game room, video library, etc). We hope you enjoy our home for an unforgettable vacation. Please call if we can answer any questions you may have.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home to spend a fabulous week enjoying Martha's Vineyard. We loved everything about it: the house was immaculate, the kitchen perfectly stocked, the location ideal and Steve was very responsive and incredibly helpful. All around so perfect that I am running out of adjectives! Thank you for everything! I highly recommend Katama Luxury!

A Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 9th time on the Vineyard, and this home was by far the most comfortable and well-appointed that we have experienced. Steve (and Craig the caretaker) were extremely responsive to questions and suggestions, and they went far beyond our expectations to ensure that our time was a fantastic one.

The home is very conveniently located close to South Beach, and, when it was nap time for grandchildren, the pool was a hit for the rest of the afternoon and evening. The outdoor shower was used heavily, and is the nicest one that I have ever showered in. The kitchen / family room was also a perfect gathering space for our family. We actually grilled a few times on this vacation, and were thrilled to find the gas grill not only with plenty of fuel, but spotless upon our arrival.

I agree with others that this home is worth the investment. The home is so well maintained and tastefully appointed that we were able to put all concerns behind us and simply enjoy a week as a family together. Thanks again Steve for sharing your home with us.

Gorgeous Property and the Perfect Relaxing Vacatio

  • 5 of 5

This property is not only lovely but well-kept and ideal for families of all sizes. We especially love the close proximity to Edgartown and the beach although we found very few reasons to leave the house the entire week as we had everything we needed for a great vacation. This is our second year staying at this property and could not be happier with our stay. Craig the "caretaker" is available at any time for questions or problems should they arise. Every detail of the home is perfect!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with a group of eight women for our annual girls getaway weeekend. The house is beautiful. It is warm and inviting yet looks like it has been photgraphed in a magazine. It is fully stocked with everything you would need if you decide to cook your meals. A short walk to South beach is a added plus. Since our stay was in April the pool was not open but if you rent in the summer you have the best of both worlds. The owner and caretaker were great to deal with. The owner was quick to reply to any question and followed up with contact upon arrival to make sure we were happy with our stay. The caretaker greeting us on arrival going over information was a nice touch even helpful with suggestions where to eat. You will thoroughly enjoy your stay at Martha's Vineyard staying here

The Perfect Beach and Vacation Home! Worry-free!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do justice to what makes this home so wonderful. Thoughtfully and completely appointed, it's stocked with absolutely everything one may need. The house is clean! I mean clean!!! The furnishings are new, not shabby. The beds are very, very comfortable and the air-conditioning is a welcome plus. Decor-wise, it's got a quiet beach theme that is soothing as it complements the open airiness of the home. The location is ideal. The beach as well as the bike/jogging path are a brief walk, and it's just a quick ride into Edgartown. And the heated pool! With beautiful landscaping and tons of seating/lounging, it's an addition to paradise.

What puts this home over-the-top is the quality of the experience the owner has painstakingly and meticulously worked to achieve. Never in my 25+ years of renting on MV have I encountered an owner who has cared more about our stay. From the caretaker who is available to satisfy a need, to the cleanliness of the home upon arrival, to the ease in which they truly make it their job to make you comfortable...the level of service and care is extraordinary.

I can rent this home free of worry, knowing what to expect when I get there and also knowing that should an issue arise, it will be handled easily and competently. When does that happen? I'm still pinching myself for having found this home! I highly recommend!

Utopia

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely perfect getaway retreat. Steve is beyond a class act. His home has every detail you could ever imagine. From the highest of end to the simple pleasures of playing cards and Yahtzee, he has it covered. The pool was perfect, hated to the happiest of temperatures for even the whimpiest of swimmers. The grounds were perfectly manicured. inside the house the AC provided the right climate for all of us. The open layout and kitchen was the mAinstay of the home. There was space for all of us to hang out and the cooks to cook. The sitting room off the kitchen was my husbands favorite little retreat to chill and relax.

This house is worth the investment. You will have such a memorial stay in this awesome home!

This property is located a short walk from South Beach (1/2 mile) and a short drive from Edgartown Village (2 1/2 miles). There's a nearby bike path that runs to South Beach and to Edgartown Village. This property also overlooks Herring Creek Farm with South Beach in the background. Very nice/scenic location with easy access to the beach and town.
