Why Mark & Tess Moses chose West Tisbury

We have a long history with Martha's Vineyard and love the island. We have owned this property for 25 years and love the quiet, yet convenient location. Although it is not a large house, the layout and flow supports a comfortable stay for up to 6 people. We use the house for our vacations and therefore keep it in good condition. We also try to keep the house uncluttered and generic-enough so that renters do not feel like they are in someone elses' home... We want our guests to feel 'at home'. We have appreciated many return renters... and encourage folks to contact us early in the season to have a choice of dates.

What makes this house unique

We love the beach (Lambert's Cove, Long Point, Gay Head), art galleries, Chilmark Flea Market, Alley's Store, kayaking, hiking, sitting on our deck, eating out and cooking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"My family and I had a lovely stay over the Memorial Day weekend. The house was very nice, with more than enough room, comfortable quarters, and perfectly located to explore the island. We enjoyed making fresh seafood in the well stocked kitchen. The location was very private with beautiful trees and surroundings. Mark and Tess provided us valuable information about the ferry, great places to eat, and other ideas that helped us enjoy our stay even more. We will definitely come back here. "

Excellent up-island property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home in the middle of MV. We ate on the large outside table most nights. Spacious and very quiet at night. Bike down the street to the major island bike paths. West Tisbury address gets you beach access to Lambert's Cove beach. Awesome! We will be back next summer.

Caveats: 1) No A/C. But even in August heat air flow was great so not needed; 2) Property is close to airport so you'll hear planes from time to time.

A little gem

  • 5 of 5

This is a little gem of a house with such a welcoming feel. Tucked away in a private setting but a short drive to all the best MV has to offer.

The house is so well stocked for dining in and all one needs for a day at the beach. The homeowners have thought of everything. Cozy, clean and comfortable. Felt right at home.

Thank you Mark and Tess.

Lovely retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay in this cozy home. It's off the beaten path but yet so close to everything. Great area for biking and walking. The deck was our favorite spot for morning coffee and dinners on the grill. And no mosquitos was a bonus! We loved watching the swaying oak branches from the master bedroom during the full moon nights. The house was spacious and very clean, and the kitchen was stocked with everything you need. We enjoyed the outdoor shower!

Mark and Tess returned emails very quickly and returned our security deposit promptly. We had the pleasure of meeting them upon our arrival. They are lovely people. The caretakers Rusty and Sarah left a box of fresh produce on the porch which was so appreciated!

Thank you Mark and Tess for sharing your island home with us! We hope to return!

Quiet hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for a quiet relaxing time, all the attractions of MV are within a short drive too. Everyone enjoyed the beaches and ate way too much seafood, my personal highlight was grilling on the deck.

All the logicstics of deposits, access etc... were handled promptly and trouble free.

I would happily stay there again.
