About the property

Ocean View House, Private Beach, 4 porches, 5 Bedrms, Loft, 3 Bthrms, Sleeps 10

Enjoy this unique summer home, perched on secluded hilltop with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. This large house is airy and bright with a multi level interior, cathedral ceilings and ocean views throughout. A huge deck accommodates outdoor dinning and entertaining or climb up to the crows nest for a quiet drink above the tree tops. We overlook arguably the best private beach on the island, with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the tranquil, kid friendly, Chilmark pond on the other. Access to this beach is its own pleasure, a 10 minute pond crossing by motor boat, canoe or kayak. Set on 3 acres amid endless forest, with 200 year old oak trees, and enjoying a large fenced in vegetable garden, and hi speed internet this is the perfect island retreat.

The house is equipped with new high end appliances including stove, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. There is also a new, large capacity Bosch laundry machine and dryer. Garbage and recycling pick up can be arranged for an additional fee.

So good, I hardly want to tell you about it

  • 5 of 5

This house, I'd love to own it; alas, I only got to rent it. It sits atop a hill among age old stately trees and overlooks the sea. It has enough room for 3 couples and 4 kids to luxuriate. The common space is inviting and sunny. Each bed is a good one, and has quality comfortable bedding. The kitchen is very well appointed -- it even has truly sharp knives, so that my Global didn't even need to make an appearance (I packed it out of habit). The house belongs to people who love it. That much is clear from the moment you step in to the moment you leave, reluctantly, to catch the ferry.

Wonderful Family Vacation Home in Chilmark

  • 5 of 5

The perfect house for several families to share. The house sits on a ridge overlooking Chilmark pond and the private beach beyond. Complete privacy on expansive grounds with beautiful views. The accommodations are comfortable and allow for privacy. We cooked nearly every night and were impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was with tools, plates, and glasses. The large patio was a wonderful place to enjoy company and to watch the sunset. The access to the private beach was a wonderful bonus. We kayaked, sailed and motored over to the private beach amongst the swans on Chilmark Pond. The outdoor shower was a hit, too. The gracious hosts are kind and easy with which to communicate. We can't wait to return!

Our time here was amazing. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived. It's a beautiful home on a expansive property with amazing views of the water. Definitely will use again. Highly recommend

Fantastic retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful stay and what an amazing spot. The deck alone and the view from it was enough to leave me satisfied and thrilled. Peaceful, comfortable, with nature all about. And then , with all that, there is a PRIVATE BEACH. Truly doesn't get better then this. The home was large and very well equipped and really had everything my family and i needed. Beds were comfy, linens were great and kitchen was perfect for us too. The hosts are thoughtful and very helpful. We will be back for sure.

Week long stay in Chilmark

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful! Beautiful views, lovely garden, very comfortable inside. It's set up very well, with three separate and private accommodations; we had grandparent in separate apartment with private bathroom and porch, one couple in the upstairs space with private bathroom and porch, and kids and another couple downstairs in the third space. There's a great common space - living room, dining room and well-equipped kitchen, plus outdoor porch with grill. Nearby pond and beach are gorgeous. House is located in a beautiful area of the Vineyard with local conveniences but not crowded and overrun with tourists. Owners are great to work with - very friendly and organized. All-in-all, I highly recommend this house!

Perfect stay, great hosts, gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to gather, entertain and although I have traveled all over the world, I can't say enough about the pristine, quiet, empty beach. Crossing the pond in a lovely kayak. It was a great stay in a very cool modernist house. The listing description was very accurate regarding the location and the photos accurately reflected what you get. The house was clean and well maintained- very comfortable. The owner was available for questions and helpful. I would totally recommend this property and hope to stay there again, great location and unbelievable beach.

Our home is ideally located "Up-Island" in Chilmark. We are halfway between West Tisbury with Alley's Store and Beetlebung Corner, the crossroads of Chilmark with the Community Center and Library. The house is situated on ridge affording a spectacular sweeping view of the Atlantic Ocean. Large old oaks surrounding the property and we border a nature preserve. We access a private barrier beach over Chilmark Pond via a small flotilla of boats, (motor skiff & kayaks). The dock parking lot is down a dirt road less than a mile from the house.
