Why Kathryn chose Edgartown
9 Oliver isn't just a vacation rental.The family has handed down the house to successive generations and many have spent the summer fishing,working,taking classes,swimming,playing tennis or writing the great American novel(in our mind)

Enjoy the view of two gorgeous Siberian Elms from the deck or the large windows of the Great Room.Our favorite places are available in our 'Welcome' book.Sheriffs Meadow protected area entrance is a block away and offers a tranquil place to view the water.Watch the On Time ferry cross to Chappy from the town beach.

Comfortable, convenient and beautiful property
Our second summer renting here...We've thoroughly enjoyed our time at this house. It's a well-maintained, comfortable, historic home with lots of charm and character. Plenty of room for our family of 6, a lovely private yard, ample parking, an easy walk to everything in Edgartown center (shops, restaurants, beach)... no need to fight the traffic.
You are so kind to take the time to write your complimentary words. Its always great when guests feel at home enough to return. Many thanks.
I agree that being able to walk or bike almost everywhere makes life easier. Glad to see you also enjoy the location.
The welcome mat is always out for you and the family.
Perfect Location, Comfortable Home
This is the fourth house we've rented on Martha's Vineyard (always Edgartown) and the best one so far.
It is in the perfect location - just a few blocks from the shops, art galleries and restaurants of Edgartown but tucked away on a very quiet side street. You don't even need a car or bike because everything is so close (including the bus stop) but there is a place to park 2-3 cars.
The house itself is spacious, bright, well-stocked, and nicely decorated, with loads of books everywhere. We were six people and the three main house bedrooms and 3 bathrooms were more than adequate for our needs. The bedrooms were a good size, reading nooks were present in the upper two bedrooms, and the beds themselves were quite comfortable. There was also a living room and a separate family room so we were able to spread out. The family room was bright and airy and had games and puzzles to keep the kids occupied. We also had everything we needed in the kitchen and laundry area and very much appreciated that there were beach towels and beach chairs to use.
There is a pleasant back/side yard as well, which could be made more useable with a slightly different outdoor furniture configuration.
The owner was also excellent to work with - responsive and helpful, reminding us of key dates like car ferry reservations and local events.
I would strongly recommend this home, particularly based upon our experience of having rented three other houses within blocks of this one.
I appreciate your kind review. It makes me very happy to know how much you enjoyed the house and look forward to your return next year. Many many thanks
Amazing, comfortable home in best possible location
We just returned from spending the holidays in this home, and it was perfect. The home is open and airy, with plenty of beautifully appointed space for the whole family to relax, spread out, and enjoy themselves. The beds are very comfortable, which you don't always find in rental properties, and the bathrooms are lovely. The kitchen is well stocked, and the layout is such that you could entertain easily. Part of what we love so much about this house is the proximity to everything - it's a two minute walk to a coffee shop, bookstore, loads of restaurants and bars, and a five minute walk to the harbor. You can also easily walk to the lighthouse and the beach that looks over the harbor at Chappaquidick. We would stay again and again - loved everything about it!
It is gratifying to have someone coma and stay who appreciates our home as much as we do . Thank you for your kind words . You left the house immaculate and in perfect condition and for that we are also grateful. Please come again .
Great Vacation Home!
We stayed here for a week in August with our family-- 6 adults and 2 children. There was plenty of room inside and out. The yard was wonderful for the kids to play in and for our family cookouts. It is a very short walk into town--even the 3 year old could do it. The owner went out of her way to give us suggestions on how to best enjoy the Vineyard. Great family rental!
Thank you for staying and taking such good care of the house. I am so glad you had a happy time and appreciate your kind words . I hope that you all will return next summer or any time you need a taste of the Vineyard .
You MUST STAY HERE!!!
My first comment is to look at the above title! This spacious, beautiful home should be your first choice when planning a trip to the Vineyard. Located just a few short blocks from the coffee shop, waterfront and enchanting shopping area of Edgartown, this property had everything I needed for making many lovely memories, from a well supplied kitchen to ample fluffy towels, pillows and luxurious linens. This home is suited to all families and groups. If you have teens who would like to feel some "independence" there is a cottage for sleeping but requires coming indoors to use the "facilities". If you have small children you have the option of sleeping on the same floor as the children or on separate levels from them. Children would, also, enjoy the large. fenced yard. Evenings were so cozy with two very large areas for either tv watching, reading, conversation or other quiet pursuits. I spent a lovely vacation in this home and would highly recommend it and its very pleasant owner for your vacation.
Truly restful vacation
Looking back on my vacation to Edgartown, I immediately remember how comfortable and quiet it was. No one would guess that downtown was only walking distance away. Not only is the location perfect, I cannot say enough about the house. There was a charm, comfort and simplicity that made it feel like home and then some. Everything I wanted was provided down to a very comfortable bed. My sister and I spent a week and never even used the upstairs. This house is incredibly spacious. Lovely light streaming in the windows to sit and read or visit.
Everything thing you may want or need is provided down to the soft wash clothes and towels. If you are planning on visiting the Vineyard, this is the place you want to stay!
We rarely bring a car and bike or take the bus anywhere on the island including directly to the airport or ferry terminal.The bus stop is 2 minutes away down town and you can get a day or week pass .Bike rentals are reasonable and plentiful.The Edgartown Seafood on Main Street is nearby across from Cannonball Park.They are the best and freshest on the island.Morning Glory produce is a quick and flat 10 minute bike ride out the Edgartown/Tisbury Road.Taxis are very expensive.The best beaches are within a 10 minute bike ride or a quick walk downtown by the lighthouse.
