About Eleanor Osborne

My siblings and I share this house and we've been bringing our children and dogs for years!

Eleanor Osborne purchased this house in 1966

Why Eleanor Osborne chose Aquinnah

My family has owned this house since 1966 and we summered here until we went off to college. We now come for 1-2 weeks with our children and dogs.

What makes this house unique

With our house comes access to 'residents only' parking at Philbin Beach (pick up your sticker at the Town Hall for a fee) and Lobsterville Beach (free). Walk to the famous Outermost Inn for dinner, cook hotdogs and s'mores on a campfire down at our private beach (just please disassemble the fire when you are done!) Play some tennis on our private court or have the kids hit against the backboard. Let your dogs roam around the property and down to the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

With access to our own tennis court and private beach, we never wanted to leave!

Absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week in July and we all agreed it was one of our favorite vacations to date. Seated high on a hill overlooking the ocean, the property is absolutely gorgeous! The large deck was perfect for summer evenings. It is a little bit of a hike to the private beach (we had a two and four year old with us and the stairs are pretty steep) but it was well worth it. Lobsterville beach was close by and easier for us to bring the little kids. The expansive yard was great for our dog to run around (her first time off leash). In hindsight the only thing I would do differently is bring a fishing pole. It was a great vacation and the house was well worth the money. I would love to come back again.

Just idyllic - magical memories made here!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't believe our eyes when we arrived for our holiday - the children jumped out of the car in their excitement before we'd even parked up! The photos can't quite convey how wonderful this place is. The house is positioned in the most spectacular, idyllic location, literally surrounded by views of the ocean spread out below. Spacious wildflower gardens and orchards give the impression you are on your own country estate - an impression enhanced by the pretty winding path down to the private beach. We all loved the atmosphere of the house - it's cosy, comfortable and is both stylishly decorated and full of history - it feels well-loved by its generations of owners. The bedrooms are all fresh and bright and you just can't get over waking up to that view each morning! We explored the beaches, biked to the mouth-watering 'Orange Peel Bakery', walked into Aquinnah, went swimming and fishing, barbecued on the beach - we just didn't feel like getting into the car, and hardly needed to (although towns like Mememsha were certainly worth the short drive). In short, it was a simply magical holiday away from it all, with something for everyone. The children are pestering us to return - we don't need any persuading!

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful family home with amazing views and very comfortable. The family who owns this house is obviously very proud of their house. It was perfect for our needs and I would love to go back. I absolutely do not have any complaints and the family was so helpful and easy to work with. It is also a great location in the most beautiful part of the world.
