Guestbook comments from the owner

On a grown up, annual fishing trip, my friends and I rented this lovely house in West Tisbury. For those of you who fish the Vineyard, it is perfectly placed in the center of the island to afford short driving times to Aquinnah, Chappy, Tashmoo, West Chop, even Big Bridge at Senge.

But you probably want to know about the house. It was clean, well maintained, impeccably stocked with amenities and materials, and secluded enough so that when peeling off our waders outside the only people who had to see our pale, bloated bodies were us.

I've rented a lot of places, and this is definitely one of the best. We're hoping it will be available next year, and I'd love to rent it with my family, too!

Rented this home for a few days in West Tisbury MA. Had a very relaxing time. Pictures
on website were very accurate, and home spacious. If you want peace and quite, this is
the place. Owners of home, Mark and Tess very friendly and helpful and great to work with
on planning of our trip.
Would totally recommend home for a stay.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This is the third year that my family rented this lovely house in West Tisbury and will certainly not be our last! The house was very clean upon arrival and it was a nice surprise to see the owners added a gas grill to join the charcoal grill on the large deck. This year we took advantage of the bicycles available in the shed and discovered the beautiful bike paths right down the street. There is also a softball/baseball field down the street as well that we hope to utilize in the future.

If you are looking for a secluded, private home on the beautiful side of the island this home is just perfect. It is close enough to the grocery store Cronig's and to the beautiful beaches of Menemsha and Aquinnah while still maintaining a private environment. The outdoor shower is a sure plus as well! The owners Mark & Tess are great and very responsive. We have not experienced any problems in the 3 years we have rented and the security deposit is always returned promptly. We know this will be a family tradition for years to come! Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us!

Perfect vacation on the Vineyard!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Mark and Tess's house in West Tisbury. It is very comfortable, spacious and has a home feel. We loved relaxing outside on the deck and taking advantage of the hammock and outdoor shower. We even got a delicious box of fresh produce from Rusty's farm.
The booking process was easy and Mark always answered our emails promptly, he even arranged for our ferry reservations. Highly recommended!

Great vacation spot on the Vineyard

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 had a wonderful vacation in this clean and centrally located cottage. Loved the layout - plenty of room for us (including 3 teenagers). We used two of the bikes, the beach chairs, the new grill - the owners had it all available for us which was so convenient. The back deck (and hammock) were our favorite spots- peaceful and woodsy feeling after being on the beautiful beaches. Mark and Tess were also incredibly accessible before our trip and responded quickly with any questions ( especially about the ferry!). Would highly recommend staying here!

Excellent House & Location

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this cabin in the woods. So quiet after spending a week in New Your City. And so central to everywhere, not that anything is far away on the island. Mark was very understanding and helpful with our changing schedule. The house was clean, the deck and hammock were great and overall we had a wonderful visit.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at the Vineyard. The home was everything we expected. The Moses were very helpful and hospitable.
Nice secluded area, centrally located on the island.
We enjoyed morning sunrises in Edgartown and VIneyard Haven, and a sunset in Menemsha. We traveled to the many lighthouses on the island.

One of our favorite restaurants was "Sharkys" in Edgartown.

Everyone enjoyed lounging on the Hammock.
One of our favorite activities was the bike trail. Very close to the home and very scenic.

Looking forward to a return visit.

From the Owner

We have a long history with Martha's Vineyard and love the island. We have owned this property for 25 years and love the quiet, yet convenient location. Although it is not a large house, the layout and flow supports a comfortable stay for up to 6 people. We use the house for our vacations and therefore keep it in good condition. We also try to keep the house uncluttered and generic-enough so that renters do not feel like they are in someone elses' home... We want our guests to feel 'at home'. We have appreciated many return renters... and encourage folks to contact us early in the season to have a choice of dates.
