About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

''Unique and charming'' describes this island artist's home that has endless amenities and extras. This secluded, meandering Cape has stained glass windows, hardwood floors and all the details you'd expect from an original Vineyard cottage, except it's new. Open living/dining great room with antique and contemporary furniture, modern kitchen, sun porch and huge game room with pool table. Wrap-around front porch with hot tub, trellised cozy back deck with outdoor shower and spiral staircase to an expansive third deck make it impossible to stay indoors. This is not your average rental property! Walk to Edgartown Great Pond, bike to town and South Beach (about a mile and a half).

Gorgeous home! Comfortable and beautifully decorated!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea Glass Cottage two weekends ago with 7 adults (3 couples plus one). We were all amazed when we arrived to find such a beautiful, spacious home with such charm and appeal. The pictures do not adequately portray how gorgeous this property is, both inside and out. The layout was perfect for 7 adults - plenty of decks, indoor space and privacy. The grounds were beautiful and the outdoor spaces so appealing! The house was immaculate and the layout was unique. We most certainly will return to stay here again!!

Great charm, space and location!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Glass Cottage was a great rental. The house is very unique with lots of charm. There is plenty of space to spread out both in the house and on one of the numerous patio and deck areas -- making it a perfect choice for extended families or small groups who don't always want to be in each other's hair. The hot tub was great at the end of the day. The house was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We hope to visit again!!

We joked that maybe we should tone down our review in hopes of keeping Sea Glass Cottage a bit of a secret, but Liz, Paul and their beautiful house deserve all the raves below and ours too - perfection. We (family of 4 with 2 college kids) could not have been happier with the set-up, location and amenities - all as described and illustrated and then some. The kicker for us, like others, is the flow, feel, decoration and design of the indoor and outdoor spaces - light, serenity and cheerful hospitality at every turn. We can't wait to return. :-) PS - delivery and pick-up of fantastic rental bikes from Edgartown Bicycles was great too.

Wonderful long weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for a long weekend last June- and everything was as described. The house has a comfortable, artsy style that was a perfect fit for our family. We loved that there are so many places to relax and that the house feels spacious. We had 5 adults and we all loved the ease to reach South Beach and Edgartown. We hope to be back again next summer!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this house and it was everything mentioned and more. The house was clean and kitchen well stocked. Game room with pool table was a nice plus and outdoor decks were great. Location was very convenient to Edgartown and we even found another access to one of the beautiful saltwater pond inlets nearby. We would definitely rent this house again. It is one of the best places that we have stayed on the Vineyard.

We absolutely loved our time in this home. The house is even better than pictured -- the perfect combination of casual, simple charm and exquisite artistic touches, every room brightened by a stained glass window. Lots of nooks for quiet moments and open spaces for entertaining and play, both indoors and out. We had 3 adults and 4 children, and never felt crowded. Location was perfect -- close enough to bike to Edgartown or the beach -- but far enough from town for a restful, peaceful getaway. Paul and Liz's generous spirit and love of the island shows. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
