Aquinnah house description

Peaceful, light-filled house overlooking Vineyard Sound and Elizabeth Islands, very close to ocean, Menemsha Pond, and Vineyard Sound beaches.

Enjoy sunsets over the sea on the spacious deck of this 'up-island' retreat at the quiet western end of Martha’s Vineyard. With panoramic water and meadow views, this peaceful, light-filled family retreat includes access to fabulous Philbin Beach (2 miles away) -- one of the best beaches on the Atlantic Coast -- and to beaches under the Gay Head cliffs and on Vineyard Sound (1.8 mi.) and child-friendly Menemsha Pond (1.5). All beaches can be easily reached by a quick drive or pleasant bike ride or walk.

UPSTAIRS: water, meadows, and marsh views; deck access throughout. Spacious, bright, open living room / kitchen / dining area, plus very large master bedroom with full private bath, walk-in closet, small desk -- also with water view and deck access. Fully equipped kitchen, wireless Internet, cable TV, free phone. Additional porch extends the full width on driveway/road side of house.

DOWNSTAIRS: 3 bedrooms (one with walk-in closet), all with large windows, sunny in a.m. or p.m., laundry room, and full bathroom. Clothesline behind house.

Close to road, yet quiet and secluded. Wonderful enclosed outdoor shower, sleeps 7 without crowding. World-famous Gay Head cliffs and lighthouse, 20 minute walk; picturesque fishing village of Menemsha via tiny bike-foot ferry, 2.5 miles. Rents Saturday, 4:00 p.m. - Saturday, 10 a.m.

A Vineyard bus (#5) passes our house once per hour; it will stop in front of our house if you wait there. It travels all over the island. Great for teenagers.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1967

                      About the owner: We're brother and sister, fell in love with Martha's Vineyard when our parents brought us there as teenagers. We used to take off our shoes the moment we arrived and didn't put them on until we got off the ferry on our way home to N.Y.

                      Why the Owner Chose Aquinnah:
                      What could be nicer than one of the quietest roads on Martha's Vineyard, in Aquinnah (formerly called Gay Head)? Sun, reading on the large deck while watching the water and birds, the sound of the ocean at night, a rural road for walking or biking, very near beaches... In Aquinnah, you are practically surrounded by water!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Sailing, boating, swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, sunning, relaxing, reading, birdwatching, beach combing. Bike rental available near ferry (they deliver to the house). Fabulous enclosed outdoor shower!
