Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful week in your house. While we were here we went to Net Result, Porta Pizza, Sharky"s, went ice skating, star gazing,saw the cottages in Oak Bluffs, sunset at Menemsha & ate at The Bite. We also went to Chappy and Island Alpaca. All of us had a wonderful time at your house.

Perfect vacation on the Vineyard!

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!

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

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.

I truly enjoy what this house has to offer. I have stayed a couple of times and I plan to return. The location is centrally located and the street is a great place to take a walk. We loved the privacy we had at this location. The back deck was our favorite places to be at the home. You could sit for hours and enjoy the wooded scenery,listen to the distant sounds of planes and roosters. The home is large enough that it was big enough for us and our four teenage boys. They all had their own area during down times, where they could set up game systems or read. The owner was very easy to work with and always made sure we were having a good time.

We have stayed in this Lovely home a few times now and love it. It's centrally located in West Tisbury on a quiet wooded street. The home was large enough to accommodate my husband and I and our four teenage boy's. Several locations to set up video games for those rainy day's and large deck for our daily BBQ overlooking the woods. You can hear the planes taking off and roosters in the background. A lovely area for walks too. The owner is always pleasant and easy to deal with. I never want to leave at the end of my stay.

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.
