Privately nestled atop a dune with breathtaking views and just steps from private swimming beach. This immaculate 2 bedroom, 1 bath beachfront cottage offers a tastefully furnished interior with sunfilled rooms and panoramic views on both sides of the cottage.. Steps from the house is large stretch of sandy beach great for swimming or kayaking. A wonderful retreat for those looking for a true beach vacation. A 10 minute drive to gourmet dining, shops, galleries, movie theater and large public beaches.
The property is situated on one of the most beautiful spots I have seen, Lake Tashmoo on one side and the ocean on the other. Decks on both sides. Charming, clean and attractive cottage. Had an immediate plumbing problem so could not take showers first night. Handled pretty quickly next day by owner. Understand there are no nice wood lounges with cushions as shown in photo. All deck furniture is plastic with a few pretty shoddy cushions stowed in the closet. Both decks could use decent umbrellas. I don't really like sitting in full sun. We had to drag an old one up from shed below deck, which is where laundry is located. This is a dangerous location. I bumped my head three times. Cottage is isolated down a rather long and rutty dirt road. I don't mind, but would have been nice to know in order to rent appropriate vehicle. There is not a proper walkway from car to house, so every time you go out you have to wash your feet, and there is no front door mat to wipe your feet. No curtains at all anywhere, so you are up with the sunrise. Could use a few extra blankets, perhaps a throw in the living room. No water pressure in kitchen. TV is tiny with very basic channels only. We used the charcoal grill a few times, but would be better to have a decent installed gas grill. All linens and beach towels are provided. The location is really the key to this property. We like being close to Vineyard Haven. It is my favorite part of the island. Enjoyed eating at State Road and Art Cliff Diner. Got some excellent swordfish from Larsen's Fish Market. My son turned us on to Back Door Doughnuts in Oak Bluffs. Also got to see a few films during International Film Fest, which always happens this time of year. We enjoyed being steps from the beach.
Recommended for: Families with young children, adventure seekers, romantic getaway.
Manager response: We appreciate your overall great review of this lovely beach cottage and do hope that we are able to accommodate your needs in the future. This tiny gem, is a beach front cottage built atop a sand dune, there are only a handful of locations like this on the Vineyard where one can literally walk out your font door down a few steps to a white sand beach.
