  • Beautiful, spacious home in great location

    "It's a rare occasion that my entire family - which is dispersed across the East Coast - is able to come together, and Denise and Keith's beautiful Edgartown home provided the perfect haven for us while we visited Martha's Vineyard for a wedding. Our stay happened just after the summer season ended, but the house is SO close to the beach (walking distance) and is also close to a number of great restaurants and local gems. The interior of the home itself, particularly the spacious upstairs area, is well-kept and inviting, and the sun shines so brightly upstairs that it gives the whole floor a nice warmth. One of the key elements that made the experience worth 5 stars was liaising with the owners during the rental process. Denise is so wonderfully friendly, helpful, available, communicative and just lovely. Hopefully we will get the chance to return to Martha's Vineyard as a family and stay in this beautiful home again."

  • Owners are Super Nice Down to Earth People

    "A great place to relax and unwind. Cottage is located in a good central area to see the island. The owners even had a Keurig and supplied various wonderful coffee flavors. It was a great treat to wake up to every morning and greatly appreciated. The yard has everything you need to kick back with nice privacy. We are thankful to have stayed at this great spot. Highly recommend this to others."

  • Adorable Home - Convenient location

    "Adorable home with great sized kitchen; washer & dryer are a bonus to renters; living room could use a comfortable chair as an alternative to the sectional couch for seating; bedrooms are accommodating, however a bed in one upstairs bedroom had a broken box spring frame. The backyard picture is outdated - unfortunately the lovely flower garden in the center of the back yard no longer exists - it is now a large unkept overgrown circle of some sort of thorny bush - difficult for small children to play around. As noted in another review - the stairs are extremely steep for young children to navigate and upstairs bedrooms have no doors for privacy or sound control from downstairs. Otherwise this house is a great location, easy walk to Rockport village shops, restaurants and lovely Front Beach - quiet & peaceful to watch sailboat classes and paddle boarders ."

  • Thanksgiving in Old Town Marblehead

    "This beautiful antique residence in Marblehead, MA more than met our expectations for a Thanksgiving home away from home. Beautifully appointed in a walkable section of Old Town Marblehead, this comfortable home includes a water view and a garden setting. The complete "cooks" kitchen was a bonus and gave us the opportunity to have our Marblehead family join us for dinner. We will definitely put this home on our list of favorites and plan to come back in the summer to take advantage of the outdoor setting. Our thanks to the owners for their attention to detail."
