Come and visit our sweet and humble home for an authentic 'Vineyarder' experience. We were both born and raised on The Island and both of our families have been here for many generations. Let us share with you our TOP PICKS list, complete with directions to the secret spots the locals go.
This property is about an 8 minute walk from the town of Vineyard Haven, about 10 min walk from the ferry, the supermarket, AND A NICE, QUIET BEACH, and 1 min to the bus stop (flag down bus at the end of the road), making it easy to avoid bringing a car on-island and saving the hassle of making a ferry ticket reservation.
We do have transferable ferry tickets available.
This quiet neighborhood used to be a farm and part of this house was the farmhouse. Today, ancient grapevines nestle around the outdoor shower. There is a large private back yard and a shed for storing bikes etc. The stylish landscaping accents the secluded deck.... the grill accents the deck too!!
This house offers wood floors, lots of bedroom space, a useful kitchen, excellent surround-sound speakers, lots of closet and clothing storage space, a bathtub and shower, masks from our travels around the world, and art from the national parks we have visited. Located close to town, this cute house is a great and affordable option for the 2014 season!

Easily everything that The Vineyard has to offer!
About the owner: We are Troy Silva and Becky Brown. We both were born and raised on The Island. Troy's father was born in this house. Troy is addicted to kiteboarding. A few years ago he drove from The Vineyard to Alaska, and then down to Nicaragua.
Becky grew up on a family farm in Edgartown and is a consultant in biological farming, electrical pollution, and indoor toxin management. Becky has been to New Zealand three times to study organic farming.
We hope you enjoy our home (and traveling!) as much as we do! Support Local!
Because we live on The Island year-round we are always just a phone call away and we are happy to help in any way we can!
Why the Owner Chose Vineyard Haven: We love living here because it is so easy to get to everything on the Island, be it errands in town, sunset spots up island, great hikes nearby in West Tisbury, beaches during the day, or bars at night.
Troy's mom owns the house and we go to Becky's family farm in Edgartown for the summer.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The front yard and the big backyard are enclosed by dense privet hedges and shrubs. This house is so close to town, but still offers privacy!
