About Gayle Cohen

After having rented on island with our children for 15 years, we decided to purchase a dream vacation home of our own. We love spending time on MV throughout the year and enjoy all outdoor pursuits ranging from biking, beaching, hiking, fishing/clamming to boating. We are both native New Englanders and the Cape and islands were always a big part of our lives growing up. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Gayle Cohen purchased this house in 2009

Why Gayle Cohen chose Edgartown

We wanted a property that we could easily walk into downtown Edgartown or easily get to the beaches by bike. Our home sits directly on the bike path so it is a short ride into the center. Biking to State/South Beaches is easily done. We love being able to view the horses grazing in the fields of the private equestrian club across the street from our property. It's even more fun to walk across the street and see them up close for yourselves! Our fenced backyard is like a private sanctuary where you can relax in the tree hammock or just sip your glass of wine and lose yourself while listening to the sounds of the birds and the wind rustling the leaves in the trees.

What makes this house unique

As former renters, we really tried to think of all of the things that we would want in a property when renting. The house is supplied with everything from spices, upgraded pots and pans, blenders, toasters, Keurig coffee machine, crockpot, lobster pot with crackers, new appliances. We supply all bed linens, towels and beach towels. Just bring your clothes and sunscreen! We have a 52" large screen TV, an ample supply of board games/books and regulation size ping pong table for those occasional non beach days. You will find 3 adult bikes, beach chairs, coolers and boogie boards available for your use during your stay. Weber gas grill for those summer BBQ's. Don't forget the two outside hammocks and our enclosed outdoor shower to complete your day on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Review from one of this summer's guests: " we have been enjoying every minute of our time at your home! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. We found everything we needed and appreciated the thought you put into everything. We are definitely looking into coming back next year!"

Comfortable home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this 3-bedroom property, 2 bath. Kitchen was well stocked for what little cooking we did (smile) as we ate many lunches on the beach and returned to our favorite island restaurants for dinner. The back deck has a table and chairs to enjoy your morning coffee and is walking distance to Morning Glory Farm for produce, muffins and other essentials. A lovely stay and we would love to return when our busy teens' schedules allow!

As former renters ourselves, it was important to us to make our home a warm and inviting place to spend time with family and friends. We look forward to having you back to share many more memorable times on MV! Thanks again for choosing to rent with us.

Nice, well located property

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home, just as described. Have been renting here for 3 years. The owner is great to deal with and location is terrific. The only negative for our family is that we are two families sharing and it is a bit tight. The second bedroom has only a full bed and not comfortable for two. The bunkroom is fine for the kids. There is only one other bath in addition to the master. It is a great house for one family! Would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: It is always nice to hear from our repeat renters. Glad that you had another enjoyable week at our home. As this is your third stay with us, I'm somewhat perplexed about the criticism with regard to the sleeping accommodations. We advertise as a 3 bedroom/2 full bath home (approximately 2200sq ft) along with a detailed description of the amenities/bed configurations in our property. We feel that we provide our renters with a comfortable, relaxing summer vacation retreat along with numerous upgraded amenities including central air, fully appointed kitchen, granite baths/kitchens, 52" TV, internet, all premium cable stations, game room among other things. I think it is fair to note that over the years, we have and continue to rent to many repeat dual families who have not expressed similar concerns with regard to the number of bathrooms (2 full upgraded granite) or sleeping arrangements.

The perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the house for just a week and wished we could have stayed more. The house was perfect. The owners thought of everything and were so easy to interact with!! We have been coming to the Vineyard for almost ten years and this is probably one of the best stays that we have had. The house is bright, clean and well designed. My kids loved the bunk beds and the down stairs area was a perfect haven for them. The kitchen was modern and it had every thing that you would need for your stay. The owners really thought about what a renter would need. In addition, the location was fantastic. It was close to the bike pat, nearby shopping and restaurants. We would absolutely recommend this house to our friends!!

Spectacular Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a family with small children because all of the rooms (except the finished basement) are on one floor. The house flows beautifully from the foyer through to the kitchen, dining area and living room. You can view all of the dining area and living room, with the huge flatscreen television, while in the kitchen. This is great both for entertaining and for supervision. The house has a modern island feel inside with beautiful lighting and easy to use and quiet climate control. The finished basement has a soft and safe carpeted staircase leading down to a separate television and ping pong table. Kids love it! Unlike other homes I have rented, this finished basement is lovely and super comfortable to hang out in. The back yard is great for a game of catch or frisbee and the deck is perfect for outdoor meals or a quiet evening listening to the horses whinny from the farm across the way. The last thing I will mention is how convenient the house is to the bike path, the playground at the school yard, and the lovely walk to Morning Glory Farm with the best banana bread on the island. Just a spectacular family rental. This is our third year here and without a doubt, we will rent this house again.

Awesome rental house on the Vineyard!

  • 5 of 5

We have looked many times for something better and can't find it. For the price, there is no better rental in Edgartown. We have three children (7, 5, 3) and have now stayed here four years in a row. It is conveniently located to Edgartown Village and Morning Glory Farm and is set on a private property with a spacious backyard for outdoor entertaining. The inside is great for families or adults. Flat screen above fireplace is perfect for watching a movie or game after a long day at the beach. The basement is a perfect escape for pong and TV. Great kitchen too with everything you need....leave all utensils and spices at home! I strongly suggest you consider this rental for future stays.
