About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8), Outdoor Shower & Grill

Great Martha's Vineyard Edgartown/Katama rental option is half way between popular South Beach and Edgartown village. The home is about 1.5 miles from south beach, which is known for its breathtaking surf and nearly rock-free white sands. This two-level south facing contemporary is newly renovated and nested in a very quiet neighborhood. It has a great deck and outdoor shower. The backyard hot tub is a great place to relax after a day at the beach. New AC in 2011. Enjoy the hot and cool! Cathedral bead board ceiling and lots of windows make this home airy and full of light. The home has an open floor plan, and can comfortably accommodate 8. 1st floor Master bedroom with a king sized bed. Three other bedrooms are on the 2nd floor. Each room has its own TV and a fan. 1st floor has a full bath. The other full bath is on the 2nd floor. Washer and dryer in the den area, conveniently next to the main entrance. Kitchen is well-equipped with supplies. The living room is very open and includes an entertainment center. Wii video game set is provided by the home. This home is beautifully decorated with a beach theme, and will give your family a casual and relaxing beach-style living! From July to September, most of my tenants are returning tenants and have been coming back for years. I am also looking forward to making new friends and making my house to be your next family gathering destination.

Why Yan chose Martha's Vineyard

My husband and I are long-time New England residence. We love travelling. Since 2005, we have been spending our summer vacation on the vineyard, the most romantic place that we absolutely fell in love from our first visit. Katama in Edgartown is our favorite. The location is quiet and private enough, and not far from either the town or the beach. Every time I got off the ferry, I immediately felt relaxed. Most of the time, we started our day by riding our bikes through the bike path or a backroad run all the way to the beach. We'll grab a lunch at the local pizza shop, and then heading to the beach and bathing in the sun for the afternoon. On our way home, we always stop by the island farm to pick up some fresh vegetables and put them on our outdoor grill. After dinner, we like to walk in the town, visit shops, and sometimes catch a movie in a local theater. There are so many fine restaurants in Edgartown and on the island. Our favorite places include but not limited to the list below. Port Hunter, a local brewery and burger place with live music over the weekend. Atria, a fusion and delicious familiy-style setting, where the president and first lady visited. Seafood Shanty sits on the water and is a fantastic dining experience for anyone. Everyday on the island is so soothing and healthy. We absolutely love it!

What makes this house unique

I bought this house because the house is situated in a very quiet and nice neighborhood. I like the open floor plan with many windows. I always prefer a four bedroom vacation home, so we can share with another family. The hot tub in the backyard is definitely a plus. Sometimes, the island nightlife could be a little too quiet to others but never to us. We use the hot tub all the time and it is so much fun.

We thoroughly enjoyed this Katama home. The open concept kitchen / great room was great for our family. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed for the week. The large deck with hot tub was a great asset we enjoyed it using it in the evening. Bedroom setup was great for multiple couples. The location is perfect for visiting South Beach and quite an easy drive to Long Point. The owners were very responsive and great with all the details for renting. Will definitely rent again.

Our family (2 couples and 2 12 year old girls) enjoyed a week in this beautiful Katama area home! We were so pleased with the bright, cheerful beach style décor and easy access to the large deck from the greatroom/dining area. The kitchen was well stocked with all you need to prepare a family dinne,r and the outdoor gas grill was clean and easy to use. The beds were very comfortable and bathrooms well appointed. The kids loved the outdoor shower for post-beach clean off; the guys used it every day in lieu of the indoor showers. The hot tub/spa was like new and super clean, situated right in the deck. Plenty of deck seating and a lovely table with umbrella. We had a few friends who were staying in East Chop come by for brunch and there was plenty of seating indoors and outside for our group plus 4 friends. Finally, plenty of parking right outside the home. Very quiet area! Great access to bike trails and Katama beach. A real winner!

Looking forward to next Summer!

  • 4 of 5

We've rented this house before and love what the new owners have done to the place. The typical day for us this past vacation was... coming back from the beach, grabbing a quick outside shower, then hitting the hot tub with a cocktail. That's what I call relaxing! I was putting some beach chairs in the car when I saw a mother wild turkey stroll through the yard with her two babies, so cool!

We love the grill, hot tub outside shower, deck table & chairs, sound system and beautiful interior of the house. We really were able to realx on this vacation. We loved taking adventures around the island, then returning to the Court street house. We're looking forward to next Summer!

This home is lovely

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this home justice. We had one of the best vacations and and plan to come back.. The owners were so very helpful and gracious before and after our stay. The house was well appointed, LOVELY, CLEAN and spacious. Our teens loved it as well and will only come with us on vacation again if we promise to rent this house again! The house is perfectly located on a quite wooded street but close to all the fun and action. The kids were able to walk to Edgartown center and South Beach was a quick drive. If you have 4 wheel drive make sure you drive out to the beach and get a sticker for the week. It cost $100.00 but is good for a full year and worth not having to lugging our beach gear over the sand.

Excellent vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

We visited MV on the memorial day weekend. It was our first time vacationing there. The place we stayed just got renovated. Brand new beautiful oak flooring with 6 inch planks. The first floor has a open floor plan. Decoration is artful. Hot tub was great. The location is convenient. Close to the town center and super markets. Also very close to the South Beach. One can run or bike to the south beach with ease. On the way, one will pass a grassy air strip and David Letterman's farm and mansion! My kids were very excited to see horses and other big live animals. MV is a great place to leave work behind and spend time with family. Don't bring blackberry with you! Or just let the battery drain and not recharge it. This was the first time I was able to not bother with checking my bb in some years. All in all, wonderful time for me and family. Great amenity provided by the property owner. Will definitely come back again and stay in the same place.

Advice for MV vacationers. This propery is close enough to the beach, town center and super markets to travel on bicycles. If you can pack light, you won't need a car. I had to drive since I have 2 kids and brought their bicycles. Because of that, I had to go in on the memorial day weekend as that was the only time vehicle reservation was still available. Turned out, there are bicycle rentals and taxi service on the island. So if you can leave the vehicle at the ferry terminal, the accessibility to the island will be much better (and the fare is much cheaper). And you probably can get a good deal by being flexible.
