                    What a wonderful experience, from first contact till departure.This house was amazing, expansive yet very private and cozy. Absolutely everything was perfect. The owner could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Again, what a wonderful experience

                    The review from our party of 12 was unanimous that this was the best rental house, and a very good value, that we have had in 15+ years of annual holidays in Europe and the US. The house photos do not do the home justice and the kitchen was a chefs dream. The layout of the house was perfect for the five couples and two singles that shared the home for 2 weeks and we had plenty of outside space to enjoy the fabulous weather. The owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with and they prepared the home perfectly for our stay.

                    Recommended for: Sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, pet owners.

                    I rented Catherine's home for a weekend get away for my mom's 60th birthday. Unfortunately, the weather was not the best and we didn't get a chance to experience much on the island. However, the stay at this home made up for the bad weather. Not only was the home walking distance from the ferry and the shops; we felt like we were at home and everything was so comfortable. I wasn't expecting such a large home but that made it even better. We had a wonderful weekend of games, television, and family fun. I have to commend Catherine on a wonderful experience, opening her home up to me and my family and making sure everything was perfect. We plan on going back next year when the weather is a bit better. Thanks Catherine for such a lovely experience, my mom is still talking about how much fun she had.

                    It is hard to overstate what a beautiful and well appointed house this is to rent for a dozen adults! Where else could old friends from two states and two Canadian provinces cook together, eat together, play ping pong, rehearse musical and dramatic performance, and have so many seating nooks to seek relaxation. This is the perfect venue from which to explore the Vineyard. No need for a car, though parking on site is ample, with a walk to the ferry, the beach and the excellent island bus network.

                    My daughter wanted to celebrate her 40th birthday by staying in Vineyard Haven, the location where her maternal grandmother vacationed with her family when she was a child. The Sea Captain's House provided the perfect location for our family vacation. The home was beautiful inside and out, with a modern kitchen, luxurious furnishings and spacious rooms for sleeping, relaxing and enjoying family time. We had our 1yr old grandson with us and the owners even had a high chair and port-a-crib available. The owners provided great support in ensuring we had the access, information and accommodations we needed to ensure our time in their home was everything we hoped it would be. The location was near the ferry, grocery stores, restaurants, and retail shops. As a parent and grandparent, I have spent many years trying to help my children and grandchildren realize their hopes and dreams and this trip and this home enabled us to provide our family with one of the best vacations ever. Thanks Catherine for all you did to help us make this possible.

                    A stunning home! My familly and I rented this beautiful home for a weekend and although it is gorgeous in the pictures, it far exceeded my expectations. It is unlike any vacation home I have ever rented with its combination of grandeur and coziness at the same time. Catherine has given this home a warm & inviting feeling with her family pictures, beautiful furnishings, artwork and decorating. Everything was so clean and fresh. Located right on the Main street of Vineyard Haven and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, the grocery store and the ferry. Everything about this home was perfect and I hope to have the opportunity to stay there again.

                    I booked this for a milestone birthday celebration with 5 couples. I have to thank Catherine for making me look like a genius! The place was beautiful, well-equipped, and with a superb location - beyond our hopes. The price was fantastic for all we got - we had fun cooking "at home" and had lots of great spaces to gather from the large living room and dining room to numerous smaller sitting rooms. A short walk to the ferry or to a supermarket and local shopping. We'll be back.

                    We stayed here for our family reunion for my mother-in-law's 75th birthday. Our group aged from 8 to 75, and the house provided plenty of room for everyone to have their own space while still enjoy being together (all those bathrooms were especially great--with such a large group, it's hard to find so many with plentiful bathrooms!). The house is immaculate and beautiful, and the owners are nearby and always helpful to address anything that might come up immediately or provide suggestions or guidance for your stay. The location is also great--literally steps away from the shops and restaurants of Vineyard Haven, as well as the little beach and beautiful neighborhoods for biking or running. All at what seemed like a really great value compared to other large family rentals. Thanks Catherine!

                    My high school friends [ class of 59 ] and I have been having breakfast once a month and traveling one weekend a year for the last 11 years. We have stayed in many nice places. This beautiful and comfortable home on Martha's Vineyard has been our favorite. So much so that it is the only place that we have returned to. I can't say enough about this home and its owner, Catherine. We have truly enjoyed staying here. There are 10 of us and Catherine's home is both comfortable for us and convenient to many sight seeing opportunities on the Vineyard. I know that my friends would agreed that if you should choose this home for your vacation you will be completely satisfied.

                    This is one of the most lovely homes I've ever stayed in. This is a mini mansion in the heart of Vineyard Haven with newspaper stores, a movie theater, coffee shops and boutiques right in the neighborhood. Superbly equipped kitchen with room for everyone to gather around the central island and talk up a storm. Owner is a pleasure to work with!

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: The gracious house is my home and I love sharing it with other families. It is a very happy home filled with memories, some I'm sure dating back to the 1800's! This home was built in 1843 as a Sea Captain's home, and has also been a boarding house in the 1960's, as well as a Bed and Breakfast. My husband and I did an extensive renovation/addition is 2002, converting this gracious house to our home. My husband and I both graduated from Cornell University. We have four children - two sons out of college, our #3 son Cornell Univeristy Class of 2015, and daughter will be entering Ithaca College this fall - 2013. Renting out my lovely home is helping to make these tuition payments!

                  Why the Owner Chose Vineyard Haven:
                  I love old homes with a history. This home has a story to tell. Walking into this home, you can feel it's warmth and blessings.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Since this home was originally built in 1843 - it is very unique! Even with the approx 3000 sq ft addition, there is plenty of the 'old house' remaining - with original wide plank flooring, original fireplaces, and beautiful molding. Many old materials were used in the new construction: ceiling tins as backspalsh in the kitchen, an old soapstone double sink in the laundry room, and antique chandeliers and wall sconces. The front porch is a lovely place to sit and watch the world walk by, the side patio is lush, and lovely and a great place to sit and enjoy a book or a nap. There are peek a boo water views from the front bedroom on the second floor, and from the third floor front bedroom and master bedroom you can see the ferry coming arriving in Vineyard Haven Harbor, as well as all the way to Cape Cod!
