"Just back from a great week on the Island. It was our great fortune to stay at Kathryn's delightful house - ideally located for the beach, Vineyard Haven and all local amenities. The beach is spectacular and just a short walk from the secluded grounds. As the other reviewers rightly identify not only does the house dazzle with its charm and features but the excellent recommendations of Kathryn and the unfailing help and support of the caretaker mean that you are never stuck for ideas nor support on the Vineyard. We had an amazing experience that we'll treasure. We have no hesitation in recommending this fabulous property to other visitors. Thanks so much."

"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"

"Having never before rented via VRBO or any comparable site, I was a bit nervous going in on this rental. I had a great experience, due in large part to Nathan & Cheryl who were friendly, prompt, and responsive -- from initial inquiry to finalizing the return of the security deposit. The house itself was great: clean, well-stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. While at the Vineyard I like to have at least one good home-cooked meal a day, and the kitchen had everything necessary for grilling & cooking a feast. I also was pleasantly surprised to find a great blender for protein shakes! Pool was a nice bonus for the kids, and there was lots of deck space to spread out and relax. A few minor caveats: there really only is room for just one car, so any guests will have limited space to park. And I really wish I could have brought my dog!
After reading the review of the renter before me, I can honestly say I didn't share his experience, except that there was one night where the neighbors were partying pretty late. The broken gate was fixed the day we arrived, and the yard looked great. As for location, I personally liked being right between Vineyard Haven & Oak Bluffs. I took lots of long bike rides (20+ miles), but would bring my bike via car to the trail, because I don't believe that riding on MV roads, many with limited shoulders, has ever been particularly safe.
All in all, a great place! Would definitely recommend."
