Great home. Great location. Great views

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing on The Vineyard for over 55 years. This home is in a great location: quick ride or walk to both Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. New kitchen with granite counters is highly functional. The home easily accommodates a large family or mixed group. The kitchen, eating area (with two tables - enough for 10-12), and living/seating area are all one room. Just off that area are the wonderful great room with fire place, two bedrooms, and a bath. Two of three upstairs bedrooms are a nice size, the third is small, but has a twin bed with pull-out trundle. A second frig in basement is great for food and beverage overflow. Then, on top of all that there is the "L" shaped porch and 3-season room. Large yard right off the porch is great for games and lounging. High hedges on three sides give lots of privacy, too. I highly recommend this property even for an off-season getaway.

Perfect Island Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year at this home and found it a wonderful place. Plenty of room, easy access to everything. Walking distance to towns, shops and beaches. The porches were wonderful at night to watch great sunsets and the Ferries coming into Vineyard Haven. The neighborhood was quiet and very nice to walk around. The neighbors were very friendly. I look forward to renting this place again in 2012.

There are two bedrooms downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs which made it very private for our traveling guests. The large living room with it's great fireplace made it wonderful to sit in to read a book, listen to music or just have quite conversations with friends and family. The family friendly area with TV made a great spot for those interested in watching TV and with a close of a door made it private from the main living room. Plenty of eating space to feed 8-10 people very comfortably. The porch has 6 wonderful white rocking chairs. Part of the porch is covered, part open and a great closed in part, which has a loveseat in it that opens to a twin bed. I spent a couple nights sleeping out there watching the stars through the windows. Our vacation there was tops! Thank You!

A truly wonderful home in the most perfect of locations

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this home two years in a row now for a girls getaway. The home is spectacular with plenty of room to spread out and not be on top of each other. Relax in front of the beautiful fireplace, or rock away with a good book on the farmer's porch. The home couldn't be in a more perfect location, with views of the ferry coming into Vineyard Haven. Perfect location for morning or evening walks and very close to Oak Bluffs. Sarah and her family have been wonderful to rent from each year. We look forward to staying here for many years to come.
