A recent review: "....My family recently returned from staying at this lovely home. The view from the house is beautiful and a perfect way to start a day with a cup of coffee. We felt immediately at home, and the house was stocked with everything, and I mean everything you could ever want in a vacation rental! From a veggie steamer to band aids, to beach towels, to Tupperware, you name it and it was there. My whole family commented on what a find this house is. We hope to go back again next year....but we plan to stay longer!!!!!..."

Enjoy sunsets over the sea on the spacious deck of this beloved home at the quiet western end of Martha’s Vineyard. With panoramic water and meadow views, this peaceful, light-filled family retreat includes access to fabulous beaches: Philbin Beach (2 mi.), the beach under the Gay Head cliffs, Vineyard Sound beaches (1.8 mi.), and child-friendly Menemsha Pond beach (1.5 mi.). All can be easily reached by a quick drive or pleasant bike ride or walk.

UPSTAIRS: deck access throughout. Spacious, bright living room / kitchen / dining area, plus large master bedroom with full bath, walk-in closet, water view, and deck access. Fully equipped kitchen, wifi, cable TV, free landline. Additional front porch extends the full width. Card table for games, games, puzzles, picnic table on the deck.

DOWNSTAIRS: 3 bedrooms (one with walk-in closet), all with large windows, sunny in a.m. or p.m., laundry room (washer and dryer), and full bath.

Close to road, yet quiet and secluded. Beautiful flower garden. Wonderful enclosed outdoor shower, sleeps 7 without crowding. World-famous Gay Head cliffs and lighthouse, 20 minute walk; picturesque fishing village of Menemsha via tiny bike-foot ferry, 2.5 miles. We rent Saturday, 4:00 p.m. - Saturday, 10 a.m.

A Vineyard bus (#5) passes our house once per hour; it will stop in front of our house if you wait there. It travels all over the island. Great for teenagers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1967

About the owner: We're brother and sister, fell in love with Martha's Vineyard when our parents brought us there as teenagers. We used to take off our shoes the moment we arrived and didn't put them again on until we got off the ferry on our way home to N.Y. Now we squeeze in time at the house whenever it's not rented. Jane is the gardener; Dave is the fixer-upper. We love this place!

Why the Owner Chose Gay Head, Aquinnah, MA, USA:
What could be nicer than one of the quietest roads on Martha's Vineyard, in Aquinnah (formerly called Gay Head)? Going to some great beaches, sunning (napping), reading on the large deck while watching the water and birds, the sound of the ocean at night, a rural road for walking or biking, ... In Aquinnah, you are practically surrounded by water!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sailing, boating, kayaking, swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, sunning, relaxing, reading, birdwatching, beach-combing. Bike rental available near ferry (they deliver to the house). We supply everything you need except food, so you don't have to waste time shopping in traffic at the other end of the island! Wonderful enclosed outdoor shower, and your choice of terrific beaches!
