West Tisbury house description
This West Tisbury family compound is located on 5 private acres of beautiful, professionally landscaped land with stone walls, patio and lush gardens. It is perfect if you are looking for a vacation that accommodates privacy, family, guests, is close to the beach, freshwater swimming, biking and hiking. Built in 2002, the main house is approx. 3500 square feet living area and sits on 5+ acres of wooded land. The 2 story guest house is next door (steps away) and is approx. 1200 square feet with a 2nd floor deck overlooking the entire yard.
MAIN HOUSE: The 1st floor entry opens to a 2-story vaulted living room with wood burning fireplace, game and card table, flooded with light from a four-tier wrought iron chandelier and an entire wall of French doors and windows. Adjacent to the living room is a spacious dining room with seating for 8 plus. This custom home features state of the art gourmet eat-in kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances, warm pine cabinets and beaded board walls. There is a breakfast bar with seating for four, and an eat-in kitchen area seats up to eight, and is a perfect gathering place for casual meals. The 1st floor also has a TV room with 40' HD LCD TV and DVD player, movie library and an office with desk, fax, printer and high speed WiFi for your laptop and a day bed with trundle for an elderly visitor.
The 2nd Floor has a large master suite and sundeck overlooking the grounds, along with king bed, walk in closet with full washer/dryer and 40' HD LCD TV for late night. A huge master bath has separate vanities, large walk-in shower with body sprayer, and claw-footed soaking tub with princess hand shower. The 2nd upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and is perfect for a teenager or adult couple. The 3rd upstairs kids bedroom has 2 twins and a pull out trundle for that visiting friend or cousin. These two bedrooms share a full bath (tub and shower).
The finished basement has a 8.4 foot private screening Movie Theatre (DVD, Netflix, Cable), pool table, ping pong, front loaded heavy duty washer/dryer and a full size bunk bed spare bedroom w/ trundle.
Enjoy central A/C, everything you need to cook and serve, wood fireplace, shaded “tree” hammock, stainless steel Weber gas grill, large screened in porch with 8 seat add'l dining table for outdoor casual meals, surround sound IPAD/IPOD speaker system (2012), and outdoor shower.
The Guest House is the real bonus, especially if you need room for another family. It has 3 zone A/C and is about a dozen steps off the main house kitchen entryway. It is absolutely perfect for relatives or friends because it was built and lived in as a separate home before the main house was completed in 2002. The Guest House has 1 bedroom (Queen) upstairs, 1 bedroom (King) downstairs w/ 40' LCD TV, 1 full bath and a bonus sleeper sofa in the living room. Because it previously served as a main residence, it has a fully equipped eat-in kitchen (stove top, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, icemaker and all the necessary cookware and electrical appliances). It also has an expandable dining room table and a wall mounted 40' flat screen LCD TV.
The Guest house also has a spacious 2nd story sundeck, with table, umbrella and 4 chairs (one is a rocker) and overlooks the backyard as well as it’s own outdoor shower to allow for a convenient return from the beach for two families.
Games and Extras: We have stocked up on the essentials for home activities; bikes, beach chairs, beach games, beach coolers, boogie boards, beach blankets and towels and an array of backyard games (such as volleyball, badminton, soccer nets). In the basement, the kids will find a 8.4' wide private screening theatre (cable, DVD, Net Flix and Wii) as well as ping pong and full size brand new pool table.
The Backyard: With 5 acres, there is plenty of room to run around, but we groomed out a large play area, surrounded by a stone wall and away from any road or cars. Your kids can safely run, play soccer, volleyball or badminton. If you are cooking, feel free to pick some fresh, organic vegetables from our seasonal garden, where we grow vine ripe tomatoes, lettuce, strawberries and raspberries (fall).
The Beach: We live on the 1 mile road to Long Point Beach (a left out our driveway), which is undoubtedly Martha Vineyard's best beach. Long Point Wildlife Refuge is 600 acres of pristine beach abutting a freshwater lake. It is the best of both worlds because you can swim the ocean and the shallow lake all within 50 yards of each other.
Biking: Our road abuts miles of bike trails. If you get the urge to bike to Edgartown, it’s only about 5 miles off our driveway and on a safe, clearly marked designated bike path set back off the road and awesome for a family adventure.
If you have an interest in a truly spectacular property and vacation, drop us a note for more info. This compound offers it all; modern, spacious, private 5+ acres, on the road to the beach and a bike path away from town! All rooms are fully furnished with extra pillows, linens, blankets, even fans if you want to keep the windows open. West Tisbury is centrally located from all the best sights and towns; 5 miles from Edgartown, 7 miles from Oak Bluffs, 6 miles from Vineyard Haven and a short ride to the Aquinnah Cliffs or incredible “ocean sunset and wine” evening on Menemsha beach. You won't regret this vacation. Please, serious inquiries only!

ReviewsWrite a review
We are so thankful to Dan and Michelle for sharing their vacation compound with our family. We have vacationed in many rental homes this was, by far, the very best. This was a vacation our families will treasure. We loved and enjoyed the comfort created inside and outside of the home and guest house. It is clearly a cherished property and not just a vacation rental. It is clean, comfortable and up to date with every modern convenience imaginable. Guests need only to pack their clothes and make a ferry reservation! The location is central to everything but wonderfully private. Our kids were able to play outside without fear of cars or passing traffic. There is ample space to run and play field games like tag, soccer, field hockey or lacrosse. It is also beautifully landscaped and a pleasure to enjoy sitting still. The proximity to our favorite beach- Long Point- is what attracted us to Dan and Michelle's home, and the boogie boards, sand chairs, cooler and beach cart they provided were wonderful touches. For evenings in or rainy days, the house is exceptionally well-equipped. From the home theater to the pool/ ping pong table to the many board games (not to mention multiple flat screen TVs!), there is something for everyone. And, if you wish to cook, you will be inspired by the fully equipped kitchen and ample dining locations. The size and layout of the house is ideal for families and allowed us to happily share space for a multiple week vacation without tripping over each other. Guests will find comfort in the numerous, tastefully decorated bedrooms and bathrooms. Dan and Michelle have a beautiful and well cherished home. They are also extraordinarily responsive off island owners with an on island team. It was our pleasure to rent this perfect space. Thank you.

MV summer trip
MV summer trip
Our family had a fantastic time! The house was very accommodating to our large group. Beautiful with lots of in and out door games... Wiffle ball, volley ball, badminton to name a few... And the only day it rained we played cards and board games. The kids all enjoyed movies in the mini theater at nights while the adults had cocktails on the breezy patio. MV has some awesome beaches and the most beautiful sun sets were in Menemsha. Just grab a bag of lobster with clams at one of the many local take out seafood spots and sit back and enjoy the view... Or, hop on a bike and take a ride into one of the quaint little towns nearby. We would definitely recommend this home and location to families with kids or for those wanting to just get away. We hope to be back next year!

Wonderful Stay on Martha's Vineyard!
Wonderful Stay on Martha's Vineyard!
We loved this house on Martha's Vineyard! It was centrally located on the island and close to everything. In addition it was located up the street from a beautiful bike and jogging path that led to a fabulous market with fresh baked goods and organic fruits and vegetables. We stayed with our teenage kids and we had a great time. The house easily fits a couple of families with plenty of room to spread out between the bedrooms in the guest house, the bedrooms upstairs, the basement bunk room, movie room, etc. The beds were really comfortable and the house was stocked with everything we needed. The backyard was great for the kids to run and play. It was a great setting for a relaxing vacation and wonderful place to stay on Martha's Vineyard. We will definitely return!

Owner response: Happy to hear you and your family had a wonderful time. We have added plenty of bikes this year for cursing the bike paths, boogie boards for the beach and a full game room in the basement for teenagers. Hope to see you again next summer!
What a wonderful vacation we had in this house! Every 'i' was dotted while every 't' was crossed when it came to the finest accommodations any guest could ask for. VERY comfortable beds, tranquil landscape, exquisite decor and plenty of rooms to enjoy makes it very hard for one to leave this serene vacation home. Our family especially enjoyed the high-tech movie room, pool table, and backyard volleyball games. After hitting the beach down the road, the outdoor showers were wonderful. Plenty of relaxing space to be had on the outdoor screened-in lanai or beautiful views on the upstairs guest house deck. If you're looking for comfort and tranquility, this vacation home has it all.

About the owner: We are a family of 5 from Boca Raton, FL. After years of visiting Martha's Vineyard, we 'pulled the trigger' when we found the perfect vacation home for family and vacationing!
Why the Owner Chose West Tisbury:
We have been coming to Martha's Vineyard for over a decade. It is an unbelievable vacation spot and offers so much to do. West Tisbury is centrally located around all the key towns and beaches. It is approx. 5 miles from Edgartown, 7 miles from Oak Bluffs, 6 miles from Vineyard Haven and a 15 minute ride to the Acquinah Cliffs or the 'must do' sunset evening on Menemsha beach (wine and cheese optional). Your kids will never get bored.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We looked for years and finally found the perfect house. Here are the top 5 things you will love about this house: 1) PRIVACY (5+ wooded acres, secluded) 2) SPACIOUS (Main House 2700 sq. ft, Guest House 1000 sq. ft, big yard) 3) COMFORT (central A/C, modern fixtures and appliances (built 2002), luxurious rooms) 4) LOCATION (on the road to Long Point beach (1 mile), 5 miles bike path to Edgartown) 5) ACCOMMODATING (fully equipped guesthouse for extended family or friends)
