As one recent guest said, your home is 'Reminiscent of a Simpler and Sweeter Time'. This home is the perfect spot for those who enjoy watching wildlife, who love returning 'home' from the beach, a shopping spree or a sail, to dine alfresco, enjoy an outdoor nap, marvel at the sunsets and watch boating on Vineyard Sound. This 4 bedroom home (freshly painted interior!) and its porch (with table for waterview and sunset dining) and grounds are the perfect spot - - ideal for families! French doors open to the screened porch with unobstructed views of Crystal Lake and the Vineyard Sound. The windows throughout enjoy wonderful water views and cool ocean breezes. Situated on a quiet, little-traveled lane beside Crystal Lake, East Chop, the yard and surroundings are perfect for playing children and tranquil for adults! The area is a jogger's/walker's dream! Despite the peaceful location, this charming, vintage home is within a short biking or walking distance of a salt water beach and Oak Bluffs with its harbor, numerous shops and restaurants and the famous Flying Horses Carousel.
More on the house and island: This is an authentic, Vineyard, family and kid-friendly beach house. Five generations of the same family have enjoyed this home and property! You can arrive, unpack your suitcases and start enjoying your vacation immediately - the house is well-equipped and comfortable. From the house, you can easily walk or ride your bike to Oak Bluffs, through quiet, neighborhood streets and lanes. Vineyard Haven is about 2 miles away. The nearest salt water swimming beach is on East Chop and less than a mile from the house - you can bike or walk there easily. Another wonderful swimming beach is about 1.5 miles in the direction of Vineyard Haven.
Amenities in this home include 2 HDTVs, DVD player, free wifi, printer, gas grill, hot water outside shower, porch dining table, original clawfoot tub, books and games, off-street parking for 3 cars, a screened porch and a hammock, both with unobstructed water views!
Remember, Martha's Vineyard is an island (reached by air or ferry) and nothing is very far away. This island has something for everyone: 5 unique island villages, wonderful calm-water sandy beaches, surf beaches, golf, tennis, hiking trails, biking, fishing, theater, old-style farmers' and flea markets, and unique shops of every description. Enjoy a corner of paradise!

East Chop has been a popular summer residential area since the late 1800s. It is a peninsula surrounded on the North and East by Vineyard Sound and on the West by Vineyard Haven Harbor, and features the high, prominent bluffs that give the near-by town, Oak Bluffs, its name. A lighthouse, East Chop Light, stands at the north end of the chop on Telegraph Hill.
