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

Why Kati Johnsen chose Edgartown

Very quiet private setting on 1.3 acres. Private dead end road with very little traffic.

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.

Felt right at home!

  • 5 of 5

I was on Martha's Vineyard with a group of friends for a wedding. The wedding was a wonderful occasion as is, but our stay was made even more special thanks to Kati's hospitality. She welcomed us with open arms to Sandy Feet, her beautiful, clean, spacious and private home. Kati was very friendly, communicative and quick to answer questions. She even left a pie and some banana bread for us! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Kati!

Perfect house for a weekend on Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Feet was everything we hoped for. Several couples were on MV for a weekend wedding and wanted a comfortable house to use as a home base. The kitchen and living areas are more than large enough for four couples or an extended family, and it was lovely having a fire ready to go in the fireplace when we arrived. The bedrooms are all large and immaculate, with comfortable mattresses and linens. Katie, the owner, was helpful at every point, even offering to pick some things up at the supermarket when bad weather delayed our ferry.

The house is on a pretty wooded lot at the end of a cul de sac about 3/4's of a mile from the center of Edgartown. There is a dedicated bike lane for walking or biking into town.

Two thumbs up!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have Doug and friends at Sandy Feet! They treated the house so respectfully, leaving it so clean as if no one had even been there! Doug and I had the chance to talk by phone before everyone arrived and that was great as we discussed the details of their arrival and the adventure they were going to have coming to the island during the storm! Thank you for the great communication Doug both on arrival and departure. You can tell you are a pro at this! Very much appreciated! So glad the weekend ended up with nice weather! Please know you are all welcomed back if heading this way again! Sincerely, Kati

Beautiful house, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely gorgeous, clean, well appointed, spacious. The owner, Kati, is so helpful and nice. She gave us all sorts of help with restaurants, things to do and she welcomed us with a gorgeous apple pie at the house. We will be back!

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!

My Property is 1.2 miles from the center of Edgartown. There is a wonderful farm within walking distance from my home. There you can purchase fresh baked goods from the farm and local veggies along with assorted gourmet items. We are located down a small private road bordering on 80 plus acres. The bike path can bring you right into town.
