Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We designed and built this wonderful home. It is our dream home. Tom, my husband, owned an insurance agency. I, Cynthia, taught high school and college mathematics in the Hartford, Connecticut area. We have 2 grown sons with their own special families and 5 grand children (4 girls and 1 boy). We personally manage this home and take pride in it. We do all our own renting, speaking with potential renters and getting to know their special needs and concerns. Each year new, exciting improvements are added to make our home a wonderful place to share with our great renters.

Why the Owner Chose Edgartown, MA, USA:
We wanted something 'very special' and this home is 'very special'. The location is so fabulous! We watch sunsets each evening from either our great cable system deck or while eating dinner in our dining room. The setting is amazing! We border Katama Bay at it's tip and is parallel to the south beach of the Atlantic Ocean. It is just a short walk to the water. Plus being on Chappaquiddick Island is like being in one of the world's most beautiful and incredible islands.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home offers total privacy, peace and quiet escape. You will not find a more wonderful place to relax and enjoy Views... Views and more Views. Far from crowds.* Read our past renters' reviews and then decide if this home offers everything you want for your lovely vacation.
