About Kati Johnsen

Thank you for visiting my site and looking into my home. I know how important it is to choose the right property and have it accommodate each and everyone's needs. During the winter I live here on the island and in the summer I am off working in Peru where I am involved in Community Development. I hope all of you that stay here enjoy my home the way I do. It is a very special place for me and I know it will become one for you too. All the best for a wonderful summer~ Kati

What makes this house unique

There are so many beautiful surroundings to the property. Behind the house, there are acres of conservation land so it is a perfect place to take a walk. In the morning you can walk to Morning Glory Farm where you can purchase great coffee and a muffin. On the way back from South Beach you can stop in and get some local produce. The fish market is 1 mile away and the village of Edgartown is 1.2 miles away. Often in the morning you may see deer grazing close to the house or some wild turkeys. The small private road where Sandy Feet is located has very little traffic and there is quiet in the surroundings. Because I am an artist, I like to have interesting things in my house, all the while keeping a very fresh clean and beachy feel to the house.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Sandy Feet Retreat with a group of friends who go on a girls getaway weekend every year. None of us had been to Martha's Vineyard before, and I was put in charge of our time while there. Finding lodging for our group was my first task. When I found Sandy Feet - and Kati's warm, helpful and very responsive spirit - I knew I had the perfect place for us. Sandy Feet was even better in person that it looks online! Kati's personal touches throughout the home, the comfortable rooms, spacious common areas, and well-equipped kitchen all helped to make it an inviting home to relax in after a day of sight-seeing. And Kati's helpful tips about sights to see and places to dine were spot-on. Each time I consulted her while planning our trip, she was quick to respond and offer great suggestions. Her love of the area is obvious and shines forth in this lovely home. From Sandy Feet, we walked to Morning Glory Farms to explore their fresh baked goods and produce. We had rented cars, so were able to drive to Aquinnah Beach- making stops along the way. On the way back, we enjoyed a seafood picnic while watching the sunset at Menemsha Beach. We also rode bikes to Oak Bluffs, did a sailing tour with Mad Max Sailing, had spa treatments, shopped and explored Edgartown. Before and after each outing we thoroughly enjoyed our time spent in the comfort of Sandy Feet Retreat. After our visit to Sandy Feet I think Martha's Vineyard has a whole group of new admirers who hope to return some time in the future!

Gem On The Vineyard!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation at Sandy Feet Retreat on Martha's Vineyard is the highlight of our year! We have spent three vacations at this beautiful property and we can't wait to return next summer. When we found Kati and her beautiful home, my husband and I were already big fans of Martha's Vineyard, having visited each summer for the previous twenty nine years. We started our love affair with the island at the Charlotte Inn just the two of us, but as our lives changed and our children grew, married, and had children of their own, we began renting a house to accomodate our growing family. We have spent time in other lovely rental properties, but none can compare to this gem on The Vineyard!

The property and house have been lovingly designed, decorated, planted, and equipped to be both a feast for one's eyes and soul and an answer to all one's practical needs. From the well tended plantings and property, to the gorgeous wood floors throughout the house, to the abundance of quality linens provided, to the magnificent master bedroom suite and bath, to the enormous amount of storage space for guests, to the well equipped (nothing missing) kitchen to the outdoor porches and the wonderful porch swing and backyard hammock, every detail is perfect! The photos posted on the website are lovely, but the actual home, guesthouse and grounds are better when seen in person.

There are three other reasons that make Sandy Feet so special. The first is its location. It sits on a beautiful private piece of property with lots of space for outdoor family time or a quiet nap in the hammock. Its within walking distance of Morning Glory Farm where you can get fresh produce, wonderful baked goods or a bouquet of fresh flowers. The house is minutes away from a wonderful walking/ bicycle path. Several members of our family begin each day on that path! Its a quick drive to both South Beach and Town. The other two reasons are Kati, this property's owner, and Mark who is always available to answer any need or problem you might encounter about the property. We have had the good luck of spending a little time with Kati and Mark. They are the type of people anyone would be happy to call friends. Their love and respect for this beautiful home is the reason that

from the minute our family pulls away the last day of vacation our conversation turns to plans for next year's return.

A Relaxing Oasis

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Sandy Feet Retreat with family and friends and there was plenty of room for us all to relax and have fun together, or find quiet time alone. The main house has a very large living room, a dining area with a beautiful, large table, and a very functional kitchen with everything you could need to cook meals together as well as a gas grill outside. There is a screened in porch with couches and chairs as well as an open porch with a double swing overlooking the back yard. There is also a wonderful, large hammock which turned out to be a great spot for an afternoon nap. Back inside the house, there are two bedrooms on the first floor: one with a queen bed and one with 2 single beds and a bunk bed. There is also a full bathroom on the first floor with a fantastic walk in shower. The upstairs has a laundry room, a master bedroom/bathroom that is quite large and wonderfully designed. There is also a queen bedroom also with its own bathroom upstairs. The guest house is very close to the main house so you have privacy, but yet do not feel removed from the the main house. It has an outdoor shower which I used every day, a living room and eat in kitchen on the first floor along with a half bath, and the entire second floor is the bedroom! Both houses are very well appointed, decorated with interesting artwork and items the owner has brought back from her travels, and very clean. I looked at the photos on this site many times in anticipation of my stay, and the houses and yard are even more beautiful in person!! It was wonderful to meet the owner and care taker in person as they are wonderful, friendly people. I can't say enough about how happy we were to stay here, and it is clear that Kati put a lot of thought into the design and decoration of the homes. The location is removed from the main road, but still close enough to walk to Morning Glory Farm or to hop the bus, ride your bike, or even walk to downtown Edgartown. Thank you for a wonderful stay and I will definitely be back!!!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time renting this property but the first time we've written a review. The house and guest house of Sandy Feet Retreat are quintessentially Martha's Vineyard - with the added benefit of four-star hotel amenities.

You can easily walk or bike into Edgartown and the fabulous Morning Glory Farm is minutes away. The property is equipped with everything you need to create a memorable island vacation: super efficient air-conditioning!, clear cell phone and WiFi signals, quality bed linens, down pillows, thick fluffy towels, a screened porch to enjoy your morning coffee or evening gin and tonic, a very private, quiet environment, lovely gardens, a well equipped kitchen and a large outdoor shower with plenty of water pressure and hot water.

There is a "Best of the Vineyard" list put together by the owner with all of her favorite places - a list that could only have been put together by someone who knows the island well.

We have stayed at a number of island hotels (the Harborview Hotel and the Charlotte Inn are our favorites), but when we started bringing family and friends with us we needed to find a house. The owner and caretaker of Sandy Feet Retreat are both so accommodating and go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. No need for us to look elsewhere - we will be back again for two weeks next year!

Best Week on MV Ever!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been vacationing on Martha's Vineyard for twenty nine years. We first visited the island for a romantic getaway and stayed at the beautiful Charlotte Inn. As the summers passed our vacations changed from romantic getaways to family vacations which included adult children and our grandchildren and my brother and sister-in law. We call ourselves "The Lucky Thirteen." My husband and I would rent the same home in Edgartown and invite everyone to come and enjoy a week on our favorite island. For the past ten summers we rented the same home, but this year due to complicated circumstances, we needed to find a new house. We feel so lucky that we were forced to change locations because Kati's beautiful home, Sandy Feet Retreat, (the name of Kati's magnificent home) provided us with everything we needed to make this the best summer we have ever had on The Vineyard.

The house and guest house, provided more than enough space for our thirteen member family. The house itself sits on lovely, large and well kept grounds. Before we even walked through the door to explore the interior, we were impressed with the covered porches, the screened in porch and the porch swing which turned out to be a favorite place for both the adults and the children. The interior was tastefully and artfully decorated. We were impressed by the gorgeous wood floors, the well stocked kitchen and dining area with adequate room for the whole family to gather together, the amazing, more than adequate, storage space throughout the entire house, the french doors that led off the living areas to the porches, the wonderful high, high ceilings, the magnificent master bedroom/bathroom suite, the balcony areas, the best outdoor shower ever, and on and on. We had plenty of hot water. The air conditioning was great when we needed it. Everything was perfect!

Mark, our caretaker, was responsive and capable and the nicest person ever! Thanks, Mark for making our stay so delightful. On the day we arrived, Kati provided us with a warm welcome by providing goodies from nearby Morning Glory farm and a magnificent bouquet of flowers that brightened each day throughout our visit. We already are looking forward to next year on MV in Kati's magical home.

Quaint, artistic home in a serene setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband, young son and I recently stayed here for our yearly vacation. The house was gorgeous! Open, spacious, clean with many interesting pieces of art and woodwork. We felt very at home and the house had just about everything we could need for our vacation. The soaking tub overlooked a gorgeous wooded lot and swinging on our porch swing is one of our favorite memories. Many heartfelt thanks to Kati and Mark for their graciousness and kindness to us. We highly recommend this to others!
