A Grand Vacation
"This was our family's second stay at this location. It was better than the first. We had 4-5 stay here and 4-5 at another location. The grandchildren loved that they could ride bikes around the circle and walk to the bakery and candy store. The adults were happy that the children were happy. Eating and cooking was a little difficult with 9 people but we had the table, backyard table and the porch and we tend to cook some and order out to go with it. Not fun to bring 4 young ones to a restaurant. The house was clean and ready when we arrived. Our only question was about Wi-Fi but Jonathan had checked with us to see if everything was OK and I called and asked for password. My fault I didn't read the booklet on the table. The caretaker also stopped in the first day to check on us. Activities included West Tisbury Farmers Market, fishing at Menemsha, beaches, children's performance of Beauty and the Beast, painting lanterns at Tabernacle , biking, 2 tours Trustees of the Reservation (family friendly)on Chappaquidick, Illumination of the lanterns, fireworks, West Tisbury Agricultural Fair(a real old fashioned fair), Chilmark Flea Market and back door donuts. If you don't have a car or bike, no problem. There are buses that go all over the island at a very reasonable price. Only drawback is the ferry reservations. We didn't call early enough and arrived at 8:00 AM and leaving was at 9:00 PM. Did I mention that the weather was perfect. Loved every minute."

"I absolutely loved this home away from home. The house is so comfortable and convenient. The short walk to the beach or to town was perfect. It was nice to be able to out and do things without needing to drive. It's nice to know I could visit without a car since the house is so close to the ferry. Although close to town, the house is on a nice quiet street - great to be able to escape from the crowds."

"Love the house, the porch, the fresh tomatoes in the garden, the clothesline.. everything. Also the location as we could walk to Vineyard Haven downtown for anything we wanted whether groceries, kids beach, coffee shops....
My grand-daughter loved the closet with the built in bed! fit her and her stuffed animal friends very comfortably. And the owners were so EASY to deal with and cared!!!!"

"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."
