About The Owner

Our three generations range in age from preteen to 80+ (including 3 college professors, a doctor, an architect). We've owned our home in Vineyard Haven since 2002, and we typically spend about 6 weeks a year on the island. (We haven't missed a Thanksgiving yet.) We're pleased to share our home with others when we're not able to be here: we take pride in extending hospitality to Homeaway guests.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Vineyard Haven

We love spending summer days by the garden, reclining on steamer chairs, swinging in the hammock, or playing croquet. Hydrangeas, lilacs, mock orange, day lilies--something is always blooming throughout the summer. Mature trees provide shade and privacy all around the property. We love to relax with a book while the kids play with friends and neighbors, and we make frequent use of the beaches all around the island.

What makes this house unique

We love riding our bikes down to the Net Result for fresh salmon and swordfish to grill on the barbecue. Nothing better than to dine under the stars on the deck overlooking our perennial garden, and then walk into town for fro-yo at Tisberry. We enjoy the Vineyard in all seasons--we haven't missed a Thanksgiving yet, and we love the winter light and walks on the beach when there's hardly another soul in sight. We're looking to welcoming out newest neighbor, the new Martha's Vineyard Museum, just down the street.

Thanks a million for making a dream bike weekend happen!

Nice stay, pleasant owners!

  • 4 of 5

Good location, quiet area, but close to vineyard haven shops and restaurants. Short drive to oak bluffs and beaches. Nice house, nothing too fancy, clean and simple. Decent size bedrooms, air conditioners in each, but didn't need to use them. Nice backyard with hammock and chairs for lounging, and a good size deck with table for eating outside. Keep an eye out for the neighborhood turkeys, fun to watch! Owners were extremely pleasant and accommodating, before and during our stay. We were able to use their beach chairs, towels, etc. They also provided us with a list of recommended activities, attractions and restaurants, which was a big help, since this was our first stay on the Vineyard. We had an enjoyable stay! Thank you!

Relaxing Time in MV

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we had a wonderful stay at this house. The owner was in frequently contact with us before, during and after our stay. She created detailed instructions from everything regarding traveling throughout MV to how use the appliances in the house. The house was located about 6 blocks from a bus line and a 20 minute walk to the downtown/ferry shuttle area. The house was spacious and inviting. The beds were comfortable. There were extra towels and linens in each room. The bathrooms were updated and the kitchen was okay. Everything was labeled and easy to find. The children really enjoyed the basket of games and puzzles on the days that we stayed in the house. There were also some convenient beach chairs that we took along to our trip to a local beach. We truly enjoyed the house and look forward to visiting next year.

Family wedding weekend

  • 4 of 5

We came to celebrate the wedding of my niece. We were 4 people. The house was old inside but spacious and 2 full bathrooms had been updated. The kitchen was well-supplied and the grounds were very relaxing. The rug should be replaced on the stairs and upper landing, the beds are hard and the pillows are very flat. Everyone had to find two - I had brought my own. The Internet connection worked well but the electricity went off a few times. The air conditioning was fantastic for sleeping! Could not have survived without it since it was very hot and humid.
