"Upon entering the sprawling driveway curling around the house, you realize how far away you are from the rest of the neighborhood, despite the walking distance proximity to downtown Edgartown. The homeowners and caretaker were very responsive and provided all the information we needed about their home and the island. The home and outdoor area are beautiful and expansive. There is plenty of space for games or relaxing in the gated yard area. The kitchen and dining area are great for cooking and eating in, with ample seating for all of your guests. The kitchen even has two dishwashers for easy clean up! We especially loved the pool/spa/fire pit area. The pool is heated by the sun during the day while the spa is a perfect ending to the evening. This is a wonderful home for families, couples, entertaining, celebrations, and amazing memories!"

"To owners Paul and Karen, well done! You have created an oasis in the middle of an oasis. Your guest house was just perfect for the two of us, and could have accommodated more, with plenty of additional bed-space and living space. Loved the hot tub. Loved the surroundings. We ate in almost every night -- probably upset a number of local restaurateurs, but then......
Thanks also for letting us in a bit early, and allowing us to stay a bit late on checkout day. As you know, we discovered a flat tire on our rental car when we went out to load our luggage into the car. That little surprise necessitated a hurry-up tire change to the mini-spare tire, then a rush to Oak Bluffs to an auto repair shop to get the tire fixed, and then a rush back to your guest house to load up just in time to rush back to Vineyard Haven in time to make our ferry reservation! Quite a morning, last Friday. Our trip home was uneventful, except that my suitcase apparently decided not to leave your guest house (just kidding!). It did not arrive with us as we flew home to Boise. But, I have it now, so all is well that ends well.
Thanks so much for your hospitality!
Jan and Jack"

"This is a great property. It is walking distance to town, but far enough away that the only people passing through are people living/staying in the area. We were lucky to find this rental available only 2 months before labor day weekend. The house was perfect for our party of 6 (3 couples) with 3 cozy bedrooms upstairs and a nice living area/kitchen downstairs. Everything about the description was accurate and we were pleased to find that there were more than enough towels and other necessities, plus a few nice unexpected surprises.
Being on Martha's Vineyard for the first time, we wanted to venture out and explore. We rented bikes near the dock in Oak Bluffs and rode down the shoreline towards Edgartown. On the way, we spotted a few places we would later revisit; A kayak rental spot, a 'buck-a-shuck' oyster deal at a hotel/country club, and a bridge clearly marked "no jumping" with tons of kids and adults jumping off into the water below. We kept riding until we reached Edgartown and one of the guys in our party spotted a sign for beer tastings. We wound up spending a few hours at a great local brewery called Bad Martha's. The atmosphere was great...and so was the beer. They had plates to nosh on, games to play, and flights of beer to drink. Afterwards we kept going further into Edgartown but eventually turned back to return the bikes. That night, on the advice of one of the employees of the brewery, we checked out a really cool bar in Oak Bluffs called The Loft. It was packed with a good assortment of drinks and an even better assortment of games to play. I would definitely recommend checking out The Loft.
The next day, we ventured out and started to walk the same path we biked the day before with no specific plans. We ended up renting kayaks and kayaking towards the jumping bridge from the day before. We pulled the kayaks up on the beach and went through many, many rounds of jumps off the bridge. It was exhilarating. On the way back, we stopped at the hotel/country club for buck-a-shuck ($1 each) oysters. The night ended with a grand BBQ at the house.
The next, and last day, we grabbed a leisurely brunch by the docks and then headed to the local beach for one last day in the sun. The air was hot but the water was cool. After a while there, it was time to catch one last lobster dinner and take the ferry home.
Thanks to the property owners and property manager who helped make our great weekend happen!"

"We stayed for the first two weeks in August. This is our eighth vacation on the Vineyard and this house, location, and pool are real standouts. The property manages to be conveniently close to farm stores (we especially liked the one at Ghost Island Farm), grocery stores, and good restaurants (less than five minutes to State Road Restaurant) yet so private and secluded that the peace and quiet is what struck us every day and night. Bunnies in the yard, deer in the driveway, song birds in the trees. The house and pool are oriented so that the pool is in full sun all day but the deck right next to it is in the shade. That keeps the pool water at the perfect temperature -- warm but still refreshing -- and gives folks who don't want too much sun a place to hang out in comfort. Pretty landscaping and plenty of chairs, chaises, and shade umbrellas. The house has two queens and five twins so perfect for families. Having one bedroom downstairs, with a full bath next to it, is also a great convenience for visitors who need to avoid stairs (or want to take naps after lunch!). The master bedroom upstairs was spacious, big closets, great bathroom en suite. The kitchen is well-equipped. Fast Internet. Attractive and comfortable furnishings inside; bunnies, deer, and song birds outside."
