"The hillside cottage was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the most peaceful area of the island. the house itself was wonderful and well maintained. dinners on the rooftop deck with the view of Menemsha Pond and the ocean beyond were priceless. the easy access to a spectacular private beach and to kayaks on pond added to the unique character of this vacation hideaway. If you get the chance, stay here."

"We had a wonderful stay! It seemed FAR on the first day, since we decided to walk with our luggage. But after that, we were able to walk back and forth to the center of town (Circuit Ave shops) in about 15 - 20 minutes. It is definitely a mile, but a straight shot. Cabs were a different price every time we took one, from only $7 for one person from the ferry, to $21 for five of us to Nancy's. Tip - we found a convenience store that was closer to the house that saved us from having to go into town more. It is called Tony's and it also has better hours, a deli and wine/beer!
The hammock out back was one of my favorite spots. It is definitely a nice location - the last house on a dirt road, so no traffic or worries about cars once there. Our only concern was walking the dirt path at night, so we made sure to be inside or cab it after dark.
The only drawbacks are 1) the extremely narrow spiral staircase to the lower level (heavy-set people probably cannot use it, nor can you take your luggage down it) and 2) the second bedroom downstairs is in between the first bedroom and the bathroom, so keep in mind that you will have to pass through that person's bedroom to use it. Works fine if it is a kid, not an adult who needs privacy. There is also a water heater inside the bathroom.
Other than that, it was perfect for our girls' getaway! The owner and his property managers were very responsive and helpful. We will definitely stay there again."

"Just returned from my Martha's Vineyard stay. The home is lovely and spacious. It is close to the center of town and you can easily and quickly walk to Circuit ave., the marina and the beach. It's also down the block from a few historical homes. The yard is spacious and well kept. The deck space is also wonderful and a great space to unwind after a long day of walking. The owner made herself available via email. She responded to every question and concern."

"We read the reviews before we booked. They are spot on. The best part of this house is the location. If you want to be in the country - book elsewhere. If you want to be in the heart of town - book this one. Our family had never been to Martha's Vineyard before, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to start. Everything, and I do mean everything, is easy to get to from this house. We took the ferry that goes into Oak Bluffs and it let us off practically across the street from this house. We walked about 4 minutes to get there. We spent our time on the island mainly exploring Oak Bluffs. We walked to the beach, to Circuit Avenue (the "Main Street" of Oak Bluffs), to the Gingerbread Cottages, the harbor, and of course, the Flying Horses Carousel. When we were ready to see Edgartown, we took the bus that leaves from in front of the house, and we were there in 20 minutes. The house is great too. It is the old 1800s Victorian - but made to be comfortable for modern living. My wife left her Prada sunglasses there (a major crisis!) and the honest house cleaners found them, and owner (Teresa) made arrangements for them to be returned by courier overnight. Would book again. Great for families."
