One of a Kind
This rental is a very thoughtfully restored and preserved historic home with many amenities and modern conveniences as described on the listing. The location and setting are outstanding offering an opportunity for a very unique "getaway" for a large group spending time on a very unique island.
This house is every bit as unbelievably beautiful as it looks in the pictures. Even more actually! We came with a big group and every one of us just could not get over how quaint, beachy, homey and simultaneously very BIG the house was. We slept with 17 people comfortably. We rented bikes and rode down the beach (20 minute bike ride to the open ocean) and rode all the way to Edgartown on the most beautiful ride I've ever been on. We had dinner on the back deck overlooking the water. We jumped off the dock and swam to the little island across the water. We walked down to OB for drinks and food. Honestly, had the weather not been great we would have fun too! There is a big fireplace in the living room and the house is great for celebrating. The caretaker was there and was such a gentleman and helped us with everything we needed. I cannot wait to come back. I can't say enough good things about this house. My first VRBO experience and such a pleasure!
Harthaven is located a mile from Oak Bluffs, going from Beach Road towards Edgartown. The house is on a private harbor, adjacent to a mile of association beaches, across from the Farm Neck Golf course. Community tennis courts are available.
