Mel fell in love with the island on his first visit to Marthas Vineyard. After a few more visits, he decided he wanted his own home built to his specifications. Having worked as a manger in a hotel, owning his own services business and owning another real estate property, he felt he knew what guests would expect and deserve. The home was built to meet the needs of more than one family with all the amenities he would want for his own family. He is very proud of his consistent focus on service, maintenance, and continuous improvement of his property. Mel spent a significant amount of time interviewing caretakers and cleaning staff to ensure the house will be kept in perfect and pristine condition. Mel is always available by phone to answer any and all questions for his guests. His main goal is to ensure a great guest experience and meet all of their individual needs.
Mel purchased this House in 1998
Why Mel chose Katama
After renting in Katama for many years I chose this area for several reasons. First and foremost, I appreciated the proximity to beautiful South Beach along a walk/ bike path. Also, it is a 5-minute drive to the town of Edgartown with beautiful shops and gourmet restaurants. Katama is a quiet neighborhood that offered a beautiful property large enough to build a South facing home and large enough to accommodate a group of 10. In addition, this private property offered the opportunity to construct an in-ground pool and fire pit that fits perfectly into the landscape as well as expansive lawns for outdoor activities. Of course, the beautiful sunsets and starlet skies can’t be beat!!!
What makes this House unique
Great location - spend part of the day at the beach - return home - enjoy swimming in your private salt water pool - have dinner on the patio and after dark cook smores on the fire pit. This extraordinary home features large and open space that easily accommodates two families with its 4 bedrooms (3 are master suites) and 4.5 bathrooms.. The fabulous interior floor plan has two separate gathering areas which provide room for everyone’s interests. There is a 2nd floor large and bright Great Room with 32’ ceilings that is open to the kitchen and dining area, so whether you’re relaxing on the sofa while taking in the beautiful sunset, preparing a meal in the kitchen, or dining at the table, you’re sure to enjoy everyone’s company. There is also a first floor family room with large flat screen TV which is great for watching a movie or taking in a ball game. The expansive lawns allow for outdoor games, while the garage can store your toys, bikes, and strollers. This home is in a perfect location - within walking distance to South Beach and a 5-minute drive to Edgartown. The owner is always available and reachable by phone and there is a caretaker, maintenance person, and cleaning crew on the island. Last but not least, previous guests often remark that the house is so much more beautiful in person than it appears in the photos !

loved it-loved it loved it
Luxurious, beautiful, spacious home.
heated pool was a plus which we used throughout the week. Great location for walks, jogging or spending time in Edgar town Brought 4 young adults (20's) who also loved this vacation
Lovely home. Spacious and clean
My family and I were very happy with the house. The description was very accurate and the house was perfect for our family of 10. It was very clean and spacious with areas for others to hang out other than the main living space. There is lots of deck space to sit and relax and the beautiful pool which was such a bonus and well maintained. Enjoyed biking around Katama and our many breakfasts at the Katama air field. I would highly recommend this home. The owners were a delight to work with and we had all the information on the home we needed for while we were there. Would rent again.
Spacious, well maintained, beautiful pool.
A family reunion for ten people was fully enjoyed in this house. Bedroom
sizes were large and well maintained. A beautiful pool enjoyed by all(day and night)and a fire pit that enabled us to prepare smores. The house has everything that one needs to prepare meals. The owner's provided very useful information for things to do on the Vineyard, as well as, the name of a local contact should any issues/questions arise. WELL DONE and you will not be disappointed.
Clean house with ample room for a family AND in a great location for a MV Rental
The house was perfect for our week stay. Its in the best location to be near both South Beach and downtown Edgartown. The new pool is a great bonus after a long day at the beach! Highly recommend this home for anyone with a family vacationing in MV.
Beautiful home for a great vacation!
Our June vacation was great – house was very clean, beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable for our large family, and provided everything we needed.
We loved the layout of the house and especially appreciated that most of the bedrooms have private bathrooms.
We had very little reason to leave the house and spent most of the time using the beautiful swimming pool since our children are young and don’t like to swim in the ocean. We enjoyed cooking on the barbecue in the evenings and sitting by the fire pit while our kids
The owners are so nice, very responsive, and provide a book full of recommendations of things to do and places to go on the island.
We are already planning our next vacation at this beautiful home.
spacious and comfortable
My family of 4 rented this house for 2 weeks with another family and their nanny. The house was clean and open with enough space that we were all comfortable. Walking distance to beach and Katama Airfield. equipped with beach chairs, umbrellas, portable crib, high chair and baby gates! They thought of everything!
A pool and fire pit new for 2017! Can't think of anything better!!
