Charming Katama Cape - Perfect MV vacation location
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Our favorite place to stay on our favorite island.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this home twice during the past two years, for two weeks each time, and both trips have been fantastic. My wife and I have been traveling yearly to Martha's Vineyard since the late 90's. Early on we would stay in either a hotel, or a B&B. When we started our family eight years ago, we quickly realized that travel with kids is much easier and much more enjoyable when you can rent a house instead. We have rented many different houses on MV for the past eight years, but this one has become our favorite.

The home is always immaculate when we arrive (although maybe less so when we leave). With three bedrooms, its spacious enough for our now family of five. We typically travel to the island at the same time as other friends of ours and have found that our house ends up when all gather for dinner after a day at the beach. It has a great kitchen and dinner room area for entertaining, and also has a patio off the kitchen for drinks outside. The yard is spacious in back and front for the kids to run around until the sun goes down.

The location for this home is what makes it better than any of the other houses we have stayed in. It is located five minutes drive from either Edgartown or Katama Beach. It is on a quiet street, with generally wonderful neighbors, including other vacationers, whom we have met and become friends with. On either corner of the block is the island bike path, which we use daily. This was where last year we taught our two son's to first ride their bikes. You can bike down to the beach or to the old fashioned dirt air strip to watch the bi-planes take off and land. Both are a five minute ride.

The house comes with four bikes so you don't have to either lug your own bikes with you or rent them. There are also kayaks, fishing poles, and gear for clamming. Our days would always begin with coffee and end with wine. In between we would fill our time with the beach (a different one everyday), boating, kayaking, clamming, fishing, bike riding, soccer, Frisbee, dining, shopping, ice cream, and watching the sun go down in Menemsha.

Hands down, this has become my family's favorite place to stay in our favorite place in the world. I couldn't recommend it more highly, just please don't take our week. My kids would definitely agree.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location, perfectly situated between the beach and Edgartown. Both the town and the beach were easily accessible from the bike path at the end of the street. The house itself is modern, recently renovated and was spotless. The owner was a pleasure to work with. I would absolutely recommend this house and I look forward to renting it again next summer.

Great Katama Location

  • 5 of 5

This home offers everything you need for a fantastic vacation! The location is perfect for easy trips to South Beach, bike trails or restaurants (The Right Fork is a must for breakfast!). This 2 story home is new inside and out with privacy and a full bath on each floor. The covered side porch was delighful for outside eating. The owner has fully equipped this home with bikes, washer & dryer and 2 kayaks as an added plus( which we had a blast paddling around in the Katama Bay). Families, couples or friends would enjoy this lovely furnished home and yard. Even my daughter bragged to her friends about how "cool" this place and vacation was!! We were lucky to have found a home with such a comfortable and lovely interior we surprisingly enjoyed a rainy afternoon in front of the gas fireplace!! Great Fun Awaits

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a perfect stay at this newly renovated home. The home is completely updated. The location is fantastic. The two kayaks that come with the rental were a real plus. The owner was a pleasure to work with.
