About the Property
3 BR house, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
The house is designed so that the summer sun is kept out despite having a two story wall of glass in the main area of the house. The effect is that your eyes naturally drift off into the woods, where you come to recognize various birds and squirrels and where they live. It is very peaceful. The screened-in porch is a favorite for reading and bird watching. Two patios, a porch, a breakfast bar, and a regular sit-down table in the house provide many dining locations. There is a fully equipped, newly renovated, full-sized kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, and an additional private semi-outdoor shower.
The house is less than five minute's walk to the 4000 acre State Forest with bike paths connecting to most other bike paths on the island. Nearby places to bike (mostly on paths) include the State Forest, Tiah's Cove, the YMCA, Vineyard Youth Tennis, West Tisbury school playground and town tennis courts, Alley's and the Field Gallery, and just a bit further along are Long Beach, Lambert's Cove Beach and the town of Vineyard Haven. A 2 minute walk takes the kids to a terrific neighborhood baseball diamond, and a 10 minute bike ride gets you to a frisbie golf course in the State Forest.
The owner has a few chickens (no rooster) at the far edge of the property and you will hear them, among the various neighborhood animal noises, especially in the morning. You are welcome to fresh eggs if you chose to collect them.
We may allow a dog. The area is perfect for it, with the State Forest next door. Please inquire.
We provide 100% cotton linens.
We will be living aboard our sailboat 'Aurora' in Vineyard Haven Harbor during the summer and will be usually available by cell phone should the renter require anything. Or, what might be more fun, come find us by water taxi and say hello!
Keywords: Centrally located home in woods along bike path, with beach passes for purchase (from the town of West Tisbury) to Lambert's Cove beach and Long Beach. Ball diamond & State Forest bike paths just yards away.

Why the Owner Chose West Tisbury, MA, USA:
We like peace and quiet and we like the outdoors. In this house we can get to know the wildlife we watch through the large glass windows and we can take daily walks in the nearby State Forest. We also appreciate having access to Lambert's Cove Beach, one of the nicest beaches on the island.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Access to Lambert's Cove beach, one of the nicest beaches on Martha's Vineyard. Fresh eggs, gathered by you directly from the nest (optional). Easy access to a house centrally located on the island that offers privacy and immersion in nature.
