About Dave

A born and raised Islander, I have made the Vineyard and the surrounding waters my home for as many years as I have bee alive! As a young man, I worked as a commercial fisherman with my father; we dragged the inland waters for small fish, and worked offshore harpooning swordfish. I have continued with various boats ever since, plying the waters north and south of the Island, mostly for bluefish and bass, and the occasional tuna.

Dave purchased this house in 1972

Why Dave chose Chilmark

We built the house in 1972 on property we had owned for many years.

What makes this house unique

The views across the fields to Town Cove and the quiet of Chilmark created a haven for our family to rest and relax.

Chilmark house

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean "lodge" like home in a farm land setting with 100 acre views and comfortable air conditioned accommodations. Fishing with the owner is a special and memorable experience every time we visit. The private beach is a very nice bonus to this rental. Would recommend this property for families or up to 5 couples.

A beautiful retreat for our week on the Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year at this house and we are already looking forward to next year! Simply a wonderful house. We never heard any traffic thanks to the tall bushes and the generous setback from the road. Beautiful views off the back deck of fields, horses, deer, forest and a sliver of Tisbury great pond. The A/C was a godsend with our week being one of the hottest we've experienced in our 5+ years coming to MV. With friends and family coming and going all week we weren't able to take advantage of the fishing trip but will definitely be going next year. The owner is a gracious host and was very warm and welcoming. This was our first time bringing and/or inviting extended family and the house was perfect for a crowd. Highly recommended.
