Wonderful Chilmark Home, Great Deck, Wonderful Clean Open Space
We stayed for our usual two weeks on MV in this wonderful Chilmark home in late August, 3 adults and 2 teenage children. Danielle, the owner was incredibly responsive and helpful. The house is clean, airy and extremely comfortable. You can walk to the Chilmark Store! You have access to Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket Beaches. We have been renting for 15+ years on the Island. This was our first summer in this house and we could not have had a better experience.
Peaceful Chilmark Family Retreat
This was our fourth time renting a home and Chilmark by far the best home we have rented. The house was clean and had every possible amenity to make your stay easy. the open concept upstairs was terrific and created a perfect space to relax and read or simply enjoy the view. Our kids loved the large yard. The beds were comfortable and the a/c was an added bonus!
The location of the property is perfect. Literally a 5 minute drive to Lucy Vincent Beach (the family favorite) and a 3 minute drive to the amazing Chilmark General Store. You are also a short drive to the quaint fishing village of Menemsha as well as Aquinna, the Gay Head Cliffs, and Moshup beach.
Danielle and Richard were great hosts. They responded quickly to any questions we had. They were a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Chilmark and highly recommend it to anyone, especially those with kids.
Thank you Danielle and Richard for a wonderful stay!
We loved staying at this house. Its a beautiful location and the house itself is very “livable” with a great back deck. Sunsets were incredible. If you are looking to be up island, this is a lovely spot.
wonderful place to stay
The house was really a wonderful place to stay. Some of the best features: Central Air (first time we rented a house on the Vineyard with central air). Very comfortable living and sleeping spaces. A terrific kitchen that had everything you could need, including cleaning supplies, paper towels, etc.. A Sonos sound system so we could listen to our music while cooking. Plenty of scented candles and great coffee table books that gave this warm house an even cozier feel. Comfortable seating and an amazingly comfortable vintage French leather club chair (if you ever want to sell it let me know). The whole house had a great shabby chic vibe. Nice deck with Weber Grill. Laundry room had everything you could need and a line to dry clothes outside. If you fish, close to Squibby for some excellent night fishing for Striped Bass. Our son caught a 36" Bass there. Close to beaches. Our family had a great time here and I would highly recommend this comfortable home.
Cute and quiet, responsive owners
Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay at the Chilmark house. We do have some suggestions to better welcome your guests. Please consider providing dishwashing detergent, dish soap, paper towels, napkins, clearer welcome instructions (how to lock the French doors and use the outdoor grill for example). We also found when we arrived some dirty pans in the oven, dirty freezer, damp towels in the dryer and a broken coffee maker. There was advertised a microwave, but no microwave in the kitchen. Our daughter and her husband stayed in the upstairs bedroom — so cute but the mattress needs to be replaced. The leather chairs in the living room also need new pads. WIth all that said, Richard was very communicative and helpful with suggestions for things to do and solutions to some of our concerns. We truly enjoyed our time on the Vineyard.`
Catherine... I wish you had brought up these concerns during our many correspondences when you were on island. The microwave is on premise but in the basement as many renters object to one these days for health reasons. Coffee makers do brake, but my caretaker brought you a new one within 24 hours as well as filters when you expressed displeasure in having to purchase them yourselves. I think you will be hard pressed to find a home rental that supplies paper towels etc but good luck finding one. Hotels may be another option.
PS- For the record, you do not replace springs in vintage french club chairs.
Shabby chic beautiful home!!
This was an amazing house. I loved the location! Being able to visit Chilmark beaches was a highlight of the trip. The home itself was delightful. I adored the owner's taste. The shabby chic feel was warm and inviting. All the beds were soft and comfortable. The coffee table books and scented candles made staying in a pleasure. There were many evenings we were content to curl up and read and listen to music! Happy there was a Sonos box! I enjoyed and appreciated every detail of this house. We were all sad to leave!
Ideal location less than 1.25 miles to all Chilmark beachs... St Lucy Vincent, Squibnocket and Menemsha. Many dirt roads and trails to explore. Half a mile to the Chilmark General store.
