About Dan & Linda

In the past 35 years we have rented many homes, mostly in New England. We were very conscious about the homes' conditions and amenities. When we finally decided to purchase a vacation home we knew what to include to insure not only the comfort of our family and friends, but for the comfort and convenience of prospective renters. Our goal is to provide our renters with all

the creature comforts of a home where they can relax and enjoy the vineyard.

Dan & Linda purchased this house in 2008

Why Dan & Linda chose Edgartown

Our friends purchased this home in 2002 and for six years we spent one week each summer with them. WE not only fell in love with the vineyard but with the house. In 2008 our friends decided to move to a different waterfront property. That is when we purchased this house. It is centrally located in a private quiet community.

What makes this house unique

Central location, private community, easy walk to our association dock on Sengekontacket Pond, two blocks away from our association tennis courts, and only a few minutes away from , Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and downtown Edgartown. When we purchased the house we had made extensive improvements such as replacing all of the kitchen appliances, adding an additional half bath, replaced all the beds and bedroom furniture, added central air conditioning and heating and an instant hot water heater. We have done extensive plantings, constructed stone retaining walls. There is a large outdoor cedar cooler chest on the deck with stereo speakers, a great place to kick back or have a meal. The large living room with vaulted ceiling, stereo system and large TV provides a comfortable family space with two large couches ad two large upholstered chairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Prestigious Majors Cove Home 4BDR 2&1/2 Bth Central AC
average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

This is such a great home! We were 4 couples that had a really great week in MV.

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for families young and old. Everything you could possibly want or need is provided. Thanks Dan, for advising us on renting linens since some in our group had to fly in.

The location is perfect to getting to all nearby towns. Hanging out on the deck and on the hammock made for a pretty great day to chill out!

The living room was large enough to accommodate the 8 adults in our group. The bedrooms are all good sized and we were able to convert the 2 twin beds to kings.

Neat basement with laundry facilities and a great new 1/2 bath.

I highly recommend Majors Cove and especially this home.

Dan and Linda, we just may be back next year!

Spacious Vineyard gem!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home for 5 summers and have made plans already to return next summer. The house is spacious, very nicely and fully equipped and a very convenient location for Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven and our favorite State Beach.

Sellers are very responsive with questions or concerns. I esp. like the large living room which can accomodate young children playing and adults sitting without feeling crowded.

There is also a lovely deck with large table and umbrella which we never take much advantage of since we lunch at the beach and often eat dinner at one of the many Vineyard restaurants. House is in a quiet neighborhood but very close to main road with bus service. It is also quiet inside with the bedrooms on two levels and living room off to the side. This is convenient if there are early risers ( young or old) and some that prefer to sleep in. Central a/c is a big plus as it can be humid and the a/c assures that we sleep well. Would I recommend it--absolutely!
