About Steve Church

My wife and I grew up on the Cape, and so frequented the Vineyard often. Since having a family, we have vacationed there many times. Offering tranquil scenery, beautiful beaches, expansive bike paths along the ocean, great towns, restaurants and nightlife, the Vineyard is truly the perfect location for a family getaway. We purchased a Vineyard property specifically to offer families an unforgettable vacation experience. With this in mind, we furnished it to mirror the luxury of a high end coastal resort, but with terrific amenities (e.g. private pool, kid's TV/game room, video library, etc). We hope you enjoy our home for an unforgettable vacation. Please call if we can answer any questions you may have.

Steve Church purchased this house in 2012

A great week in this beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

A great week in this beautiful house - we would come back in a heartbeat! Property and house are exceptionally well maintained. The design, furnishings and décor make for a perfect Vineyard beach house. Everything was exactly as pictured. Outstanding location for access to bike paths, south beach and the center of Edgartown which is a very short car ride. The caretaker is very attentive and was available throughout our stay. Highly recommended!

Look no further - beautiful, amazing, perfect!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was wonderful :) The house was beautifully decorated - exactly as the pictures show! The home is in a lovely neighborhood. Walking our dog to the beach was something we looked forward to each morning - an easy mile down the road with wide paths.

It was my mother's 75th birthday and we brought all the family together to celebrate. We did go into Edgartown but I think our fond memories are being in the house together. The house has a great flow! I could be in the kitchen cooking and family members would sit at the island and gather. The weather was amazing so others would take a drink out on the screened in porch and enjoy each others company. And of course there were a few men who HAD to see the latest football games on tv. So even when people were doing different things we still felt like we were all together. I can't even begin to explain how everything was perfect. I tried to bring everything with us that I could think of but I forgot spices. Guess what - a cabinet full of them!!! Forgot the wine opener??? No problem - they had 3!!!! I have to talk about the showers. Amazing. You could dance in them. Pressure was better than my house. Steve has really thought of everything. Beach towels, chairs, pool toys, dvd's, even make up remover wipes!!!!

My mother and I had the best vacation of our lives there. We've both had so many people tell us how happy and relaxed we look, and we FEEL it. I've been smiling since the day we arrived, and when I think back to that week I still get a warm feeling.

In all honesty we had no issues. At all. If I had to think of something negative it would be that when I got up in the middle of the night to go upstairs into the kitchen to get that one last brownie that just HAD to be eaten before breakfast, the stairs would creak. But on an upside of that, you're teenagers aren't going to sneak out of the house lol :)

Steve supplies you with every amenity and opportunity to completely de-stress and relax, and he was absolutely perfect to work with. He responded immediately to every contact I made and was very considerate while helping me plan this special time for my Mom. Also the best owner I've ever worked with before.

Thank you Steve, for a lovely experience all around.

Anyone who does not take the opportunity to stay at your place is missing something that cannot be found anywhere else. The hardest part of the trip was leaving.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Vacation Perfection!

Rented this property to kick off summer '17 and celebrate our triplets high school graduation. We were a group of 9, my husband, myself our 4 young adult children, and a few or their friends. The layout was perfect for us! Privacy in the master suite above and the ground floor served as a great space for the kids. Laundry conveniently located outside the bedrooms. The entire property is well equipped with everything you need. Kitchen is well appointed and there is no shortage of towels, even with 7 teenagers. Property is well cared for and in impeccable condition. We were met by the caretaker and given a run through which was very helpful since we had not been on the Vineyard for many years prior. The location is brilliant, we were able to take our morning walk to the beach but Edgartown is a short car ride away. The kids will be bringing their bikes this year (yes, going back!). There is a storage shed attached to the house with room for them to store bikes.The Right Fork at the Katama air field was a favorite breakfast spot and right around the corner. Overall it was a perfect week, we were blessed with sunshine everyday and the property does not disappoint! It's just as beautiful as the photos and Steve was extremely responsive throughout the process of booking, answering any questions immediately and giving consideration to allowing my dog. She is an 8 year old, 25 lb shetland sheepdog with impeccable manners (retired show dog). Most luxury rental listings will not allow dogs at all. I am sure Steve decides on a case by case basis & I cannot thank him enough!

Memorable family gathering week of July 4th in MV.

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to be able to gather our kids from different parts of the world with grandkids including newborn for a perfect week! 9 in total with baby. House was a perfect layout with great flow and never feeling crowded. The kitchen open concept was a real gathering spot as was the screened- in porch for morning coffee. Master suite on third floor is a great oasis. Very clean and very well furnished in all ways. Steve is always available and helpful, ahead of vacation and during the stay, as was the caretaker. Cannot say enough about location...perfect for a bike ride into town and a 10 minute walk to best beach. Very safe for young ones ( 13,11) who biked and skateboarded everywhere. We hung around the pool area a lot and ate in mostly as the home is perfect for entertaining and has everything you need. I made a couple of small suggestions to Steve and he was quick to act upon for the next guests. Hope to be able to do this again and would highly recommend. We topped it off with family photos on beach which I booked ahead of time with suggestions from Steve. Best family vacation ever!

Spectacular home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 87 Slough Cove Road.. beautiful home, pool and within close proximity to South Beach. The house is well appointed .. the beach chairs etc make it so much easier to pack .. you don't have to bring your own!! Kitchen equipment all great..lots of room to spread out and entertain .. The owner has invested in quality items ..Weber gas grill, etc.. makes all the difference in trying to fix dinner for a crowd and do it successfully. I can't say enough great things about this house and the owner who was completely accessible for any and all questions. If we come back to Martha's Vineyard...we will rent from the Church's... Big thanks!!

This property is located a short walk from South Beach (1/2 mile) and a short drive from Edgartown Village (2 1/2 miles). There's a nearby bike path that runs to South Beach and to Edgartown Village. This property also overlooks Herring Creek Farm with South Beach in the background. Very nice/scenic location with easy access to the beach and town.
