About The Owner

Much loved family home where summers and vacations have been spent for over 40 years. My sister and I love our home most of all for its comfortable homey feeling and because it is so close to everything! Having a car is nice for exploring the island and the other towns and for grocery shopping (which we often do on bikes) but is not absolutely necessary. We also love that we feel safe letting our middle school aged children explore the town on their own.

The Owner purchased this house in 1976

Why The Owner chose Edgartown

Wonderful in-town location. We can walk or bike to everything! The harbor is 1 block away, excellent for boating. Chappaquiddick ferry is 2 blocks away as well. Beach and Edgartown Lighthouse are a 5 min walk.

What makes this house unique

Our outdoor shower is a wonderful experience with excellent water pressure! We never shower anywhere else even on the chilly days.

Wonderful home for our group of eight attending a wedding on the island. The house was so convenient for getting in and out of town. The back deck in particular was a hit for outdoor snacks and early fall sun. Plus, great outdoor shower. Thank you!

Beautiful and extremely comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I have never stayed on a property that felt more like home. The dining room and living rooms had plenty of seating. The beds - all of them - not just the master - were extremely comfortable. Anything you can imagine needing on a weekend away was there. This beautiful home is just a couple blocks away from the harbor. The homeowner is wonderful, so accommodating and easy to coordinate with. Would say here again in a heartbeat!!

Perfect Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this residents for a long weekend with some friends to do some fishing. Couldn't have picked a better location. It is centrally located for everything you need. Minutes away to all the shops and restaurants. Boat access at the end of the street. Also a nice walk to the beach that is perfect for fishing and swimming. Eloise and her family are very nice honest people. The house has everything you need to make you feel like your home. Will be going back for sure. Thanks again Eloise!

Classic Edgartown rental

  • 5 of 5

Excellent rental for the privilege of experiencing the classic Martha's Vineyard and Edgartown in-town area. Historic home surrounded with other lovely homes. Easy to walk a few blocks to the harbor, shops, restaurants and the picture postcard lighthouse and beach. Excellent large outdoor deck with nice furniture and good gas grill. Photos are accurate of the attractive bedrooms (but note that the upstairs rooms have low ceilings!). Bright sunny eat-in kitchen. The owner is very friendly, helpful and responsive to any questions.
