About Patricia Brown
Born and raised in landlocked Indiana, our family has always cherished our summers on Martha's Vineyard. We have four children and often invite extended family to vacation with us; we all fit comfortably. My husband works in Open Heart Surgery at a leading hospital in Indianapolis and I work part time in a private school. We welcome you to enjoy Martha's Vineyard at our Windchime vacation home.
Patricia Brown purchased this House in 1972
Why Patricia Brown chose Oak Bluffs
My husbands parents built this home on the Vineyard after vacationing there for several summers. We have renovated our home to keep it updated and comfortable. When on the ferry ride to the Island, we can literally feel the stress melting away. There is no place on earth like the Vineyard.
What makes this House unique
One of my favorite things about this house is the living room/great room. With 20 foot ceilings and wind chimes along the loft; a soft breeze makes it magical. The deck and outdoor shower are a favorite too; lots of fun BBQ's and outdoor showers under the stars.

Family friendly retreat
My family and I recently stayed at Windchime during our visit to Martha's Vineyard. We had a great time. The upstairs room was perfect for my daughters, niece, and nephew. The house is located close to Vineyard Haven and also Stop & Shop.
The living room is wide open and allowed for a lot of family interactions and activities during those rainy days we experienced. With a full house during my stay, it was great to have 3 bathrooms and the outdoor shower!
Patricia was great. She was kind enough to leave a welcoming gift and checked in to ensure everything was in order. We couldn't ask for more and appreciate the responsiveness.
Thanks again! Hope others enjoy Windchime as much as my family and me.
I would certainly recommend Windchime to others and will look to return again next year!
Wow! Thank you so much for your kind words.
I'm happy you had a wonderful time, please visit The Windchime again.
Enjoy the rest of your summer 🌻
Nice house in Oak Bluffs
We stayed in this home for a week with our extended family including 4 teenagers. Very easy bike ride to Vineyard Haven. We especially enjoyed sitting on the deck to eat breakfast and the kids liked sleeping in the loft area. The house came with many supplies and the owner gave us a goodie bag which was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend this place for large families.
Thank you for staying at The Windchime! I am glad to hear you had a great visit and we welcome you to stay again in the future.
Thanks again and have a wonderful summer!
Rental with Potential
The house was definitely big enough for 12 people and had a beautiful deck outside with hanging white lights. While there was no air conditioning, it did have ample fans and windows. There were also chairs and other water equipment and toys for the beach, in addition to board games and cards. Specific feedback: (1) the mattresses on the beds in the middle bedroom and bedroom closest to the first floor bathroom were so hard that we had to purchase and have shipped to the house two memory foam mattress toppers, (2) the general level of cleaning and presentation could have been much better (i.e. the first floor bathtub and shower liner - so unsightly and unsanitary that we ordered a bath tub mat to put down and a new shower liner to put up), (3) the basement bathroom did not run any hot water, and (4) the refrigerator did not get very cold.
This could be a great rental house if these four items were addressed.
Thank you for staying at our rental property; I hope you had a wonderful time on the Vineyard.
Thank you for the feedback! I agree with you regarding the mattresses, I had an extended vacation on the island this summer and also felt that the two mattresses you mentioned could be softer; I have ordered new ones for next season. I apologize if the cleaning was not up to par, we use a reputable professional company on the vineyard. Bath mats and shower liners are replaced every year. If you incurred any expense, I am happy to reimburse you; please let me know through the Homeaway portal inbox. I will further address the items you mentioned.
Again thank you for staying at the Windchime.
Great family rental!
We recently stayed at the Windchime with another family. There was more than enough room for 4 adults and 6 kids! The house was very nicely decorated, clean and had all the accommodations we needed!! We enjoyed sitting out on the huge deck at night with the sea shell lights :) The house was in a great location and in a very quiet setting. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when we visit the island again. The owner was very nice and was quick to answer andy questions I had!
This magical Island of Martha's Vineyard has enchanted and amazed visitors for generations. The spectacular natural scenery, quaint and historic seaside villages, fine hospitality and relaxed atmosphere have made Martha's Vineyard America's favorite Resort Island.
Each Island town has its own character. There is the stately and historic Edgartown, the vintage architectural eccentricity of Oak Bluffs, the bustling but down to earth demeanor of Vineyard Haven and the relaxed peacefulness of the 'up-island' towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah.
