              Year Purchased: 2012

              About: Yordanka and Benjamin met on Block Island while Yordanka worked a summer job at the BIG and Ben worked as a general contractor building residential homes. Shortly after purchasing the home they moved in the pursuit of career opportunities presented to Yordanka after she graduated Yale SOM. They both enjoy sharing their home and they use VRBO and AirBnB to rent homes from others when traveling. Meeting and sharing experiences with interesting people is something that they enjoy. Sadly they are no longer able to manage their rental property on their own. They hired Offshore Property to manage The Martin Mere house.

              Why Block Island:
              Yordanka and Benjamin happily chose to purchase this wonderful home from Benjamin's grandmother in 2012. They both love the island very much and are happy to be able to share its uniqueness with others. Benjamin has been a life long resident of Block Island and his family tree can be traced back to the founders of Block Island. Who's names can be found on settler's rock. By purchasing the property the family was able to maintain ownership of a larger section of family owned properties.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Benjamin And Yordanka are happy to share their home with people who share their love for animals. It pleases them to be able to share their home with people. Which makes the property a place that people can count on to bring their families back to year after year. The property is surrounded by ponds, nature conservancy owned land, and it is situated between family owned property. This makes the property unique because Benjamin's grandmother and parents are both quiet and very unlikely to complain about the occasional loud noises produced by good natured fun coming from the rental home. There is also a boat and life preservers on the property.
