Our home is a well loved Vineyard family home. Located just .2 mile from Main Street down town Edgartown on a quiet, private road. Our cape/post & beam has a very unique cottage feel with exposed brick wall/hearth and open beams all around. Lots of Vineyard charm and character. Very large yard with lush gardens and a nice hidden patio with lighting and sound system. Very Island-y neighborhood with a nice mix of families and year round neighbors as well as vacationers. We rent very little so our home is most comfortable with lots of amenities not found in your typical rental. Beautiful large manicures lawn with many outdoor spaces. So close to town but private. You will hear the church bells from the whaling church and the feel the fog from Edgartown Harbor!
Walk to town and never have to park or sit in summer traffic! Bike to beaches and/or other towns! So many restaurants and activities within .5 mile from our home!
Off Season is the best kept secret and our favorite time here. Access to the whole Island becomes much more available and the beaches are still warm with beautiful blue skies. Nights are filled with starry skies and cool breezes.
Perfect for one family with In laws- great first floor guest room.
Sonos, sound system in patio and Apple tv. lots of amenities not found in your typical rental!

About Robin BREEN
We spend a lot of time at our Vineyard home all year round it is a very special place to us and we hope to spend more and more time here in the near future! We are on the Vineyard most of the summer. It is a very inviting and special place. We live just south of Boston when off Island and definately consider our home here our true home! We spend at least 6 + months a year here and enjoy all 4 seasons on Island! The Island is constantly changing and new and old experiences are always presenting themselves. We love our home here and hope that our guests will have the same positive experiences!
Robin BREEN purchased this House in 2004
Why Robin BREEN chose Edgartown
We have always loved the Vineyard and especially Edgartown. Being city people we like the closeness to town but love to enjoy a lot of quiet quality time in our patio and home feeling secluded as our road is private and very quiet! If you want to be close to town but enjoy having green space and privacy than you will love our house! Your guests can all do different things without having to drive or involve others. Much to do so close to our house for everyone!
What makes this House unique
Our home is so close to town and centrally located that your options are unlimited. So many things to do that in all our years here we are still finding new things on the Island to do and visit. We love to hike all parts of the Island that are not accessible during peak season. We also love to run/walk all around and Edgartown. The beach options are awesome and so close to home. 4 wheel- bike, walk, there are beaches for all within very close proximity from our house! Great dining options, shopping, lots of great trails for walking. Many art galleries and unique sights all around! Town to town the Island changes and keeps it interesting!

This cottage, tucked away down a quiet dirt road, was a perfect for girlfriends' getaway weekend. The location makes for an easy trip to downtown Edgartown, yet is private and quiet. The cottage is clean, nicely decorated in neutral colors with local posters and art. The dining room is large, as is the outdoor patio table, with a private fence surrounding it. The kitchen is amply stocked with all the dishware and utensils we needed to cook meals. We enjoyed the outdoor shower and breakfast and cocktails on the patio. The only downside to five women renting was that the two bed rooms with twin beds were very small, but would be fine for children. We weren't aware that the owners had a dog and one member of our group had allergy problems. The owner was attentive and helpful. Thank you for a great weekend!
Thank you for your very specific review Deborah. You ladies were great guests! I do remember writing to advise you of the small bedrooms for all single adults and I hope it wasn't too much of an inconvenience. We do have a dog that is a hair dog not fur but I always disclose this as well - I'm sorry one the girls had issues.
Perfect Island Vacation
We immediately loved this charming cape home. It was beautiful, clean, warm and welcoming. It had a beautiful living room with fireplace as well as an amazing outdoor patio so you could relax. either indoors or outdoors. Its location was ideal, only a few minutes walk to Edgartown and the beach and any amenities you might need including a grocery store down the street which was an added bonus. The area is charming and our whole family had a very memorable break. I would highly recommend this rental to
anyone wanting to enjoy the islands at their best. Thank you Breen Family.
Thank you Mooney Family for your kind words! We hope you will return next year and appreciated your care for our home!

Perfect in every way!
This home was perfect in every way. This home is beautiful, comfortable, clean, cozy, quiet and has all the amenities you will need. Not to mention a perfect location to Edgartown. We were able to walk everywhere and get morning coffee and breakfast at the store just down the road to enjoy at this lovely home. In fact, we found ourselves having a hard time leaving the home at all. We had all the information we needed from the property owners from where to eat, shop and must places to see, etc. The property owners are very attentive and available with any questions. If traveling to anywhere on MV, this is the location and place to be! Thank you Breen family!!
Thank you so much Cyndi. We would love to have you back and are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the Vineyard!

We had never traveled to Martha's Vineyard before, so we could easily have picked a location that would have not met our needs. However, we hit the jackpot. The home's location put us within walking distance of Edgartown (not having to find a parking space even in September was a real plus) so everyone had independence to come and go. We were able to explore the island by car and enjoyed doing so several days. But for the most part, we loved being able to go into town for lunch and dinner and shopping, head to the beach (a short drive away) or just relax in the lovely outdoor spaces around the house. Our time on Martha's Vineyard couldn't have been better and our rental home and location did so much to make it so.
Nancy, Rick & Guests,
Thank you so much for being perfect guests. I am so glad you enjoyed the Island and our home and welcome you back anytime in the future.

Excellent home with amazing back yard a very short walk from town.
Our family had a wonderful stay in this excellent home. The location is perfect -- secluded and quiet with an amazingly relaxing backyard, but just a short 5 minute walk to some of the best of Edgartown. With a group of people with different interests, it was very nice to be so close to town that people could stroll to restaurants, the grocery store, ice cream shops, and coffee shops without stranding the rest of the group. Best of all, we didn't have to give up on space or clam to get this great location. We spent many hours on the beautiful patio with the great grill and chiminea.
The pictures capture everything and there are no surprises. I would highly recommend this home to those looking to explore Martha's Vineyard.
Thank you so much for the nice comments! We enjoy our home all year and were pleased you could enjoy as we do!
Home away from home
This property was exactly what we were looking for during our stay on the Vineyard. It was spacious, comfortable and really just felt like we were in our own home. The house is fully equipped with all you need for your stay. The location was perfect, easy walking into Edgartown center for coffee, lunch, dinner, shopping and the movies. We couldn't have asked for better location near all the action, yet still have a quiet neighborhood where the kids could kick a soccer ball in the yard. The property was very well maintained and cared for and the owners were extremely available and responsive with helpful tips for things to do and see on the island. This rental can't be beat!
Thank you so much for your kind words! You and your family are welcome and we hope you would like to come and stay again!
so close to downtown Edgartown and the main bus terminal with connections to the whole Island. We are 1 street away from the historical district but on a very quiet private road. Beaches all around for your choices- walking calm beaches, 4 wheel drive access, harbor beaches and a 3 mile long barrier beach. Clamming, windsurfing, kite surfing, jet skis, paddle boards, you name it you can do it! Edgartown has a very lively tourist area for dining, shopping , walking tours and much history for just observing.
