"My husband and I have been vacationing on Martha's Vineyard for twenty nine years. We first visited the island for a romantic getaway and stayed at the beautiful Charlotte Inn. As the summers passed our vacations changed from romantic getaways to family vacations which included adult children and our grandchildren and my brother and sister-in law. We call ourselves "The Lucky Thirteen." My husband and I would rent the same home in Edgartown and invite everyone to come and enjoy a week on our favorite island. For the past ten summers we rented the same home, but this year due to complicated circumstances, we needed to find a new house. We feel so lucky that we were forced to change locations because Kati's beautiful home, Sandy Feet Retreat, (the name of Kati's magnificent home) provided us with everything we needed to make this the best summer we have ever had on The Vineyard.
The house and guest house, provided more than enough space for our thirteen member family. The house itself sits on lovely, large and well kept grounds. Before we even walked through the door to explore the interior, we were impressed with the covered porches, the screened in porch and the porch swing which turned out to be a favorite place for both the adults and the children. The interior was tastefully and artfully decorated. We were impressed by the gorgeous wood floors, the well stocked kitchen and dining area with adequate room for the whole family to gather together, the amazing, more than adequate, storage space throughout the entire house, the french doors that led off the living areas to the porches, the wonderful high, high ceilings, the magnificent master bedroom/bathroom suite, the balcony areas, the best outdoor shower ever, and on and on. We had plenty of hot water. The air conditioning was great when we needed it. Everything was perfect!
Mark, our caretaker, was responsive and capable and the nicest person ever! Thanks, Mark for making our stay so delightful. On the day we arrived, Kati provided us with a warm welcome by providing goodies from nearby Morning Glory farm and a magnificent bouquet of flowers that brightened each day throughout our visit. We already are looking forward to next year on MV in Kati's magical home."
