Charming 5 Bedroom, 4 Bath Property with Harbor Views

Luxury water front home with breathtaking views of Edgartown Harbor. Front and center for watching fireworks on Fourth of July! Enjoy the wrap-around porch looking over a grassy backyard with white picket gate opening to Collins Beach.

This house was recently featured in New England Home, Cape and Islands 2015 edition for it's relaxed, beachy vibe that stays true to its upscale Edgartown location.

Two large master suites are on the second floor with spectacular views of the harbor from both inside and outside on the shared deck. A third bedroom in the main house is located on the first floor with French doors that can provide a private entrance.

A separate two-bedroom guesthouse is connected by a charming courtyard with gardens and outdoor dining area.

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for the Memorial Day Weekend. We had 3 generations staying and it was perfect. My children (in their 20's) stayed in the cottage and the rest of us stayed in the main house. The house has every amenity you could wish for and is beautifully decorated and so comfortable and we felt so at home. The view over the harbor is gorgeous. We loved sitting on the back deck in the mornings and at all times of the day. It was perfect lazing in the back yard while some of us played ping pong in the pool house. The house is a few steps from downtown and there is no need for a car.

I would highly recommend this house and plan to come back again.

Lap of Luxury

  • 5 of 5

My son was recently married on the Vineyard. I wanted to be able to offer my close family, coming from out of town, a comfortable convenient place to stay while they were here to celebrate this special event. This beautiful home fit the bill perfectly! Plenty of room for everyone to find a quiet spot, yet wonderful large rooms for everyone to gather. We had coffee on the magnificent back porch every morning when the sun hit it full on. On view was the Chappy ferry, the Edgartown Light and boats in the harbor. The inner courtyard provided a place to be protected from the chilly early spring breezes. Everything we needed was in easy walking distance (a favorite was Behind the Bookstore cafe) including the wedding venue...perfect. The sound system was a bonus and it was a joy to cook meals and entertain in the kitchen! A memorable few days for many reasons, not least of which was this truly stunning house.

Exceeded Every Expectation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this BEAUTIFUL home for a group of friends over the Memorial Day weekend and could not have been happier. Everyone was blown away. The house is stunning and in a great location right on the water - the pictures on VRBO do not do it justice! And it's only a very short walk to all of the great restaurants, bars, and shops in downtown Edgartown. Also, the house is perfectly designed for entertaining. We had happy hours everyday on the wrap-around patio overlooking the harbor and the SONOS system running thru the entire house makes it extremely easy to listen to music while cooking, eating, or playing games (many of which are provided!). We would (and plan to) rent this house again in a heartbeat!

***Traveler Tip: If you take the Falmouth to Edgartown Ferry you'll never need a car and you'll avoid the long lines and hassle of the ferries going into Oak Bluffs:)

Terrific Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly beautiful home in a perfect location, 2 blocks from town. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking, although we all enjoyed walking into town for morning coffee (Espresso Love was a favorite) and usually for dinner in the evening. The beds are super comfortable, the decor is very tasteful (the home is even better than the photographs) and the owner is terrific to work with. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing and picturesque Martha's Vineyard experience.

Simply Exquisite!

  • 5 of 5

We woke up early every day because we decided never to close the window shades in the master bedroom as the views were as beautiful as any on the island. The sheer quality of the home itself and the location just steps from town make this the PERFECT Edgartown home rental. This magnificent home was spotless and accommodated our eight adults with ease. The well appointed kitchen allowed us to prepare and enjoy gourmet meals effortlessly, so we stayed in more nights than we ever had on previous visits to to the island. We enjoyed morning coffee overlooking the harbor on the back porch and then after our 9:00 am visit to Morning Glory Farm, we had breakfast in the beautiful courtyard filled with flowers and tranquility. The quality, luxury and simple perfection of 71 South Water street is a renter's dream. Hilary, the owner is a delight to work with. Simply exquisite!

Amazing House!!

  • 5 of 5

I needed a large home that would accommodate several different families so that we could celebrate my husband's graduation. The Edgartown house was just perfect. With three bedrooms in the main house and a loft that accommodated a family of four, it met our needs. It was stylishly decorated (I did not want to rent grandma's house) and the views were fantastic off the porch in the back. The best feature was that it was within walking distance of everything! The homeowner was a joy to work with. I would definitely do this again.
