vacation rental description

The Captain Morse House, at the corner of Morse and North Water streets, is one of Edgartown's finest homes. This exquisitely detailed home is perfect for your dream vineyard vacation.

The home features eleven bedrooms and seven baths on three floors, a formal living room and dining room, two family room/game rooms, and two new gourmet kitchens all tastefully decorated with period furnishings and artwork. The home has new central air-conditioning, heat and hot water systems and appliances.

Outside on the North Water side facing the water are two spacious porches with partial water views of Edgartown Harbor. There is a large dock at the end of Morse Street that you can walk out on. Our backyard is one of the most spacious and safe in town and features a bricked patio with seating for ten with a barbecue, croquet and an outdoor shower. There is off street parking for three to four cars. Current accommodations are for up to 23 people in 18 beds.

We are committed to doing whatever we can to make your stay in our family home on Martha's Vineyard a special one. We think that our house is the best in town and offers any visitor a truly unique and authentic island experience. Judging from our sellouts during our first two years on the market our guests agree.

Best family vacation EVER

Review submitted: June 30, 2014   Date of arrival: June 22, 2014

We picked Captain Morse House because it could hold all 15 of us and I'm so glad we did. It is a very interesting rambling house with an amazing yard and location. The children loved picking out their rooms and it was big enough that we weren't tripping over each other. We played bocci ball, barbequed, walked to a wonderful place each morning for coffee and muffins and back in the afternoon for ice cream. We went to the beach, watched World Cup both at the house and a terrific seafood restaurant and the children loved the back yard. Everything is a short walk and the town is picture perfect.
Before our arrival the owner sent an e-mail so that we had all the schedules for ferries and phone number for crib rentals. I knew nothing about the area and he was very patient with me and made sure I got all the information I needed.
It was a great week and it created some wonderful memories. My four year old granddaughter was very sad this morning that she was home and couldn't go back to the big house where we could all live together.
Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Team Sail Away Retreat

Review submitted: June 9, 2014   Date of arrival: April 19, 2014

We had a business retreat with 18 women at the Capt Morse Home. We could not have asked for a better setting to hold this retreat. The theme of our retreat was to simplify our businesses and focus on the basics!! This was truly the best setting for that. All of our attendees thoroughly enjoyed their stay! The house was beautiful and clean and provided everything we could possibly need! Everyone was comfortable and loved that we were within walking distance of all shops, dining and sight-seeing. This house is beautiful!!!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing
