This house is a short drive to Philbin Beach - one of the best ocean beaches on the east coast. Child-friendly Vineyard Sound-side beaches easily reachable by bike or on foot.
On a quiet country road, adjacent to conservation land, this is the perfect spot for biking, hiking, sailing, fishing, or just relaxing by the seaside. Visit the world-famous Gay Head cliffs and lighthouse or go a little farther to sample the many delights that make Martha's Vineyard such a popular destination.
The house is at the end of an unpaved road (1/3-mile long). From the paved road (Lobsterville Road) it's a 10-minute walk to the Vineyard Sound beach (which you can see from the house). The ocean-side beach (Philbin Beach) is a 12-minute car ride from the house. There is also a beach at Menemsha Pond, a short bike ride (or car ride) from our house.
Our end of the island is very quiet and very safe and beautiful for bicycle riding. There's a little bike ferry that crosses in 5 minutes to Menemsha, the fishing village.
