Property description

Whether a family of four, or three couples, or a family reunion, this contemporary house and attached guest house offer an expansive and serene retreat. Large decks, oak-shaded lawns, private dock, fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, comfortable furniture and lots of windows ensure and enjoyable escape from a hectic world. Keeping in touch, however, is easy with 2 phone lines and a fax line, WiFi and Ethernet connections, and good cell phone coverage.
Swim in the lagoon or stroll on the Atlantic beach. Kayak or lounge on the deck with a good book. Within minutes you can be shopping in Edgartown or enjoying a four star meal at one of the many upscale, but casual, nearby restaurants.


Contemporary on the water 4 acres: Martha's Vineyard is a magical place. Experience a secret part of the Vineyard that few will ever see.
Down a wooded country road, you will find a beautiful contemporary house, with guest house, situated on four acres fronting the Edgartown Great Pond, a coastal sanctuary.
This body of warm water, surrounded by miles of pristine shoreline, is home to swans, geese, terns, gulls, plovers, osprey, horseshoe and blue crabs, and even a playful otter. A narrow strip of sand separates the Pond from a restricted access Atlantic beach that is ten minutes by boat from your own private dock. Access is only available to owners and guests/renters. You can picnic by the dunes, or walk for miles along the beach and, often, see only your own footprints. Guests are encouraged to explore the Pond by sea kayak, windsurfer, sunfish or motorboat. Children will love swimming at the beach or playing on the extensive oak-shaded lawns.



Privacy and accessibility: The house has a comfortable elegance that allows for both impressive entertaining and casual family gatherings. Cathedral ceilings, white oak paneling, oak floors, expansive decks and picture windows throughout compliment the surrounding natural beauty.
Additional amenities include fireplaces, cable television, unlimited long distance calling, WiFi and Ethernet connections, two phone lines and a fax line.
Yet, this beautiful and well-equipped house is an eight-minute drive from the picturesque and historic whaling village of Edgartown, with world-class shopping and restaurants.
This fabulous spot is accessible by airline from New York, Providence, and Boston; and by car from Wood’s Hole via the ferry. A no vehicle fast ferry is also available from New Bedford. Automobiles, scooters, bicycles, watercraft are easily rented on the island.
Enjoy private tranquility or exciting entertaining and adventure.

Other Amenities

  • This contemporary house is fully outfitted to make the most of your stay. Most appliances are 1-3 years old, and kitchen is set up for gourmet cooking. For guests staying one week, linen and towel change, cleaning and laundry will be done on the day of departure and charged to guests. The house will, of course, be clean upon your arrival. Guests may, however, have housekeeping services as frequently as desired (at guests' cost). For guests staying longer than one week, we request that our housekeeping staff change towels, bed linens and do light cleaning at least every 4-5 days, in addition to the cleaning at departure. It is highly recommended that guests rent a outboard motor boat from ' Wendy's Book-A-Boat'. A boat will be delivered to the house's dock when desired, and picked up when no longer needed. This is a great way to access the private Atlantic beach and to see the unspoiled sanctuary....moreless
