About the Owner

The Vineyard has always been a special place for our family, offering so many diverse and wonderful activities. Before purchasing we rented in Katama and realized you are going to drive to the beach anyway so why not be in town so you can walk to everything including a beach. As soon as you get on the ferry all your worries are gone and you are ready for a PVD (perfect Vineyard day). So many great memories have been created here. Now it's time you create yours.

Great family home in great location!!

  • 5 of 5

I went to MV for a wedding that was in edgartown and the location was PERFECT! Walking distance to everything with fish market across street and several grocery stores nearby. The house itself was also very large and comfortable to accommodate our whole family. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a nice meal. There were also great things in the shed to help with downtime (bike, bags, toys for kids). Homeowner was very responsive to any queries we had. Would definitely rent the house again in a second!

Excellent home and weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the perfect location, right in Main Street in Edgartown. We went for a girls' weekend and the house had plenty of space for all of us to stay with the multiple bedrooms and additional fully furnished cottage with beds and a pull out couch. The house was perfect walking distance from downtown Edgartown. We were able to walk down for breakfast, lunch, dinner and shopping, and it was a nice stroll. The house also has a great yard in which we had a clam bake one night. It was the perfect space for an outdoor cookout. The house was perfectly clean and equipped with all the amenities we were told to expect, including cookware, bathroom essentials, etc. we had a terrific stay and would love to return next year!

Memorable Experience on Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Martha's Vineyard was too short! We loved the historical look and feel of the home and the location was fantastic. Several of the family members took advantage of the bikes and rode to town and across the little ferry to Chippaquiddick island while others of us walked to town for shopping and dining. Several specialty food shops are within walking distance... actually across the street. So convenience for cooking at home. The kitchen is well stocked for serving a large group. The commercial businesses are in charming homes so you have to look for the signs. All of us in our group agree that we would definitely come back again.

Great Girls Weekend Get-a-Way

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a girls weekend! The house is beautiful and very well kept! It is within walking distance to Edgartown shops and restaurants as well as the grocery store and bike rental. The kitchen is well stocked with everything that is needed. The beds are comfortable and we appreciated all the ammenities in the bathroom! I would highly recommend this property even for an off season retreat if you want to get away from the summer crowds!

Summer 2014 Great Vacation Spot (2nd year in row)

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great place and twice the fun. Three families with four kids (age 7-11) have vacationed at this house for two years in a row and have had a great time. The house is very spacious and centrally located to all the dining, retail and entertainment venues in Edgartown. We never had to drive into town. Moreover, its unique location by the bike trails allowed us to cycle to Oak Bluffs and to Vineyard Haven with relative ease. The owner is very responsive and there are a lot of "extras" such as bicycles, beach boards, beach chairs, ping pong table etc. that make the trip enjoyable. It is as if the owner anticipated our needs and provided a lot of amenities. The house also has a "carriage" house that is a bonus room separate from the main house. Many of the adults found the "carriage" house to be a nice break from all the kid activity in the house and it is well appointed. The yard is spacious enough for kids and adults to enjoy separate play zones. And, we very much enjoyed sitting on the front porch.

After the first trip in 2013, we liked the property so much that the same three families rented the house again in 2014 August. While I've never wrote reviews before, I can attest that the property is exactly what you see, is very well appointed, and in a great location where you can quickly walk to Edgartown, take a short drive to South Beach, walk to the grocery store and rent bikes from across the street.

I wholeheartedly recommend this property and the next time we come back to Martha's Vineyard, we hope to rent this house a third time. I hope all the owners of properties on this site are as responsive and helpful as this owner. We had no complaints.
