  • A Little Piece of Paradise

    "We stayed here June 15-22, 2014. What a beautiful place. The owner did not exaggerate anything about the place and gives you her phone number and email address. We had two small boys that had the time of their life. I loved the deck in the morning as I drank my coffee. The sunsets were unbelievable. This is a fantastic central location. Close to Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. We flew in on Cape Air (which was wonderful) and the house is only about 15 minutes from the airport. We rented linens from Takemmy Linen and they were at the door when we arrived. Shop for groceries at Stop and Shop in Edgartown because it is larger than the one in Vineyard Haven. Morning Glory Farms is open everyday and they have fresh vegetables and homemade breads/pie etc. The boys & adults loved Felix Neck Seashore Excursion, Longpoint Beach is worth the drive, State Beach has the calmest water, buy a kite at the Corner Store in Oak Bluffs and fly it in the park, drive over to Aquinnah to Gay Head, visit Polly Hill Arboretum for the plants, peacefulness and wildlife-deer, turkey, chipmunks, squirrels, birds. Visit the lighthouses. All the restaurants we ate at had good food with great service and were very accommodating with the small children...MV Chowder Co, Linda Jean's, Nancy's, Café in the Flowers, Guiadarno's, MV Brewery, Lobsterville Bar & Grill. The absolute best thing ever though is the beach right on the property. We swam, looked for sea creatures, loved the geese and ducks, built sand castles, and just relaxed. Our week wasn't long enough and I so appreciate having the opportunity to get to experience MV at this little piece of paradise."

  • Grande Dame

    "The home is a real Grande Dame of Oak Bluffs - a relic of the past, 1860s I believe. It has been updated tastefully, and comfortably. Biggest issue we had is that it is located so close to Backdoor Donuts that in the evenings, gentle winds brought gusts of olfactory joy in the form of warm, freshly baked apple fritters and other similar treats. We couldn't resist, and the consumption of donuts before bedtime became a nightly ritual that we grew afraid to break. The owner gave us a suggestion for what was our favorite meal on the island. We went to Menemsha Beach an hour before sunset, and bought the Sunset Special (take out) from Menemsha Fish Market for $19 a head: included a freshly caught and steamed 1.25 pound lobster, large stuffed clam, clam chowder or lobster bisque, cole slaw and corn. They provided everything we needed (napkins, plastic flatware, etc.). (It's messy.) What a value. What an experience. A lobster picnic on the beach at sunset. Our family will never forget that. At the instant that the sun disappears on the horizon, everyone on the beach claps, as if to applaud the performance that only nature can deliver. We loved the house. We loved the vacation. We love the memories. It was a privilege to be there, and we hope to be able to make this an annual reunion for our family."

  • July 2014

    "Location, location, location! Best location we've ever stayed at on the island. Walk to the East Chop Beach, the best seafood 2 doors down at the Ocean View, walking distance to town. The house isn't squished in like so many others near downtown. There is a great yard, quiet and beautiful neighborhood to take nice walks through, huge spacious porch, and even a large deck. Plenty of room inside. Lots of bedrooms and even an overflow bedroom between the tandem bedrooms. We felt very at home here and would highly recommend it. We hope we can rent here every year in the future."

  • Charming Renovated Cottage

    "We just returned from a two week stay in this charming, renovated cottage. The property is exactly as pictured and within walking distance of the town center and a fine public library. I especially wish to applaud the owner's responsiveness. The television stopped working on the second day and upon calling the booking agent, within a day the owner appeared with a new television and made the necessary repairs. The property is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. This was our first trip to Martha's Vineyard."
