Property Details

Updated: Apr 21, 2015
Four bedrooms and three full baths; large deck for relaxing!

New windows, newly renovated second floor bath, and a new deck directly off the FF MBR are simply a few of the most recent additions to this light filled Katama home. A short walk from the Village of Edgartown and two mile bike ride to South Beach this Vineyard home was completely renovated in 2010 and is maintained to the highest standards. New double hung windows are the newest addition to the property, and are not yet reflected in our photos, but are long and wide preserving the great flow of light into the open floor plan. The 2400 square foot home has four bedrooms and three full baths, the second floor bath has undergone a thoughtful renovation consistent with the earth tone colors that fill the house with calming warmth. The gourmet kitchen and Weber grill prove to be the perfect ingredients for any meal. The living area is open and plays host to a large screen TV, but most guests prefer to sit out on the expansive deck that offers both sun and shade! A large backyard offers hours of play. An outdoor shower completes the scene. The house is fully equipped with bedsheets and towels.Window air conditioning is available in the bedrooms. Beach chairs and an umbrella are provided along with outdoor games such as badminton and other lawn games. The newly added back deck off the MBR gives it's occupants a lovely spot from which to sip early morning coffee or watch a lovely sunset or the stars above in an endless sky.

About the Owner

We are actively engaged in real estate. We live off island but visit on a regular basis. We have three children and two grandchildren. This is the second home we have purchased and renovated on Martha's Vineyard, a destination we fell in love with in the early 90's. We return whenever we can and are continuing to invest in this property we have come to cherish. It is meticulously maintained and we have on island caretakers who react quickly to any problem or emergency. Now that 2 out of our three children are married and have started families we are establishing new traditions that include their in-laws and extended family. We had the most endearing and wonderful event there this September and cannot wait to do it again in 2015!

Perfect Katama location

  • 5 of 5
My wife, daughter, son-in-law and two-year-old granddaughter spent two very happy weeks at 12 Mettels Way this past August. For families wanting easy, bike-able, nearly equidistant access to Edgartown and South Beach, this house is in a perfect location, near the center of the spit of land separating the left fork and right fork roads. The house itself is very comfortable, light and well-appointed, with a good-sized great room, 3 bedrooms (one upstairs, for privacy), 2 1/2 bedrooms, and an outdoor shower. There is an extra converted breezeway sitting area off the upstairs bedroom, good for reading, working (guilty, I'm afraid!) or just getting away. The kitchen is well-stocked, the beds are very comfortable, and Mary Jane, the owner, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

One slightly unusual feature of the home is a huge backyard, shared with several adjacent properties. For renters wanting a secluded location with privacy,this is probably not the home for you. For families with kids who want to toss around a frisbee or organize a touch football game, it's perfect. We were neither, and while the shared space took a little getting used to, in fact there was a lot of privacy because we barely saw anyone in the other houses during our two-week stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely note! I am so happy that you had an enjoyable visit and found everything you needed to have a memorable trip. I am disturbed to learn that others staying on adjacent properties trespassed - this is not common space - it is private property and it is something I will addressed. Privacy and our guest comfort is most important to us.

This secluded but accessible home has it all - up-to-date shared spaces and very comfortable sleeping accommodations for total MV relaxation. Large, light-filled residence with gourmet kitchen, great outdoor spaces, WiFi, flat-screen TV and books, all in absolutely pristine condition. Hike, bike, kayak, swim, dine, shop - it's all nearby. Fabulous getaway!

Having selected many fine homes on Martha's Vineyard and the Cape, I am an experienced renter; it is a pleasure to recommend this beautiful place to all who appreciate a serene, thoughtfully decorated home with careful consideration given to all you'll need. Spacious, yet cozy, the house offers bedrooms on the first and second floor, with room for activities for the whole family. Our kids especially appreciated puzzles and the hammock; all of us loved the outdoor shower. and proximity to town and beaches.

wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This large, open, welcoming home is the perfect rental for those who want flexibility in their vacation plans--it's close to town, beaches, bike paths, and open space land. The owner has provided everything and more, with high-end cooking supplies and finishing touches. You could eat off the floor in this house! The outdoor shower is a summer treat, as are the decks and hammock.

From the Owner

We were looking for a larger property closer to the beach and one that was in need of updating. All but one room in this house was taken down to the studs and renovated. At some point in the future we hope to build a guest house. Katama represents one of the most attractive areas on the Island and affords easy access to town and the Island's best beach. A short walk toward the beach brings you to the Katama airport restaurant, which is GREAT for breakfast! We also love to ride our bikes along the bike path.

Our meticulously maintained home sits on an island between Herring Creek and Katama Roads and is surrounded by MV's extraordinary bike path that can take you to South Beach, the Village of Edgartown or beyond! Protected Open Space is minutes away on foot. The Village is an easy walk where you'll find entertainment, restaurants, fishing and access to Chappy! South Beach is only a two mile bike ride away, and the Katama Airport and Right Fork Diner a nice walk from the house. Our large deck and expansive backyard is perfect for cookouts and yard games! A new Weber gas grill and picnic table complete the outdoor living space along with garden chairs and a new hammock. Our newly renovated kitchen is well equipped for the most discriminating cook. Each of the three full baths has been updated and you will never want for towels or sheets. The four bedrooms (2 down - MBR and Bath with Queen sized bed, and second bedroom - 2 Twin beds and 2 upstairs, one queen and 2 twin) are tastefully decorated. The house is maintained as a smoke-free environment. We delight in taking long walks, biking along the path toward Morning Glory Farm for early morning muffins and late day pies for the evening's desert, tennis at the Boys and Girls Club or the school's jungle gym and play-yard with our children's children and friends. The Edgatown Fire Station Museum delights all, and the maritime museum is nestled into a lovely Village neighborhood. There is sailing and swimming, gardens and beaches, museums and shops galore.

From the Owner

Since we completely renovated the house in anticipation of our daughter's wedding, we were able to add all the things we liked in our first home or those that were missing such as a large porch! We like to walk and ride bikes. This location affords easy access to both the Villiage and entertainment, as well as relaxation both at home and at the beach. It is quieter than living in town, but has the benefit of the Katama General Store and Right Fork Diner - both within walking distance, scenery, the bike path and a private dirt road.
