Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished up a wonderful week at this beautiful home. We loved every minute - it was great to be back on Martha's Vineyard! We enjoyed the sun and waves on close by South Beach. It was nice to relax and enjoy the spacious deck after some majors waves. The outdoor shower was clutch to rinse the sand away. We had a hot week so the central AC really came in handy. Ron was great to deal with. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!

Lovely vacation home! Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We thank Ron and Barbara for a wonderful vacation at their home. The house was spotless, equipped with everything we needed and family friendly. We are also very pleased with the location of the home from our favorite beaches (equidistant from South and State beach). The outdoor shower was a plus for us after a day at the beach and the deck perfect for outdoor dining. We would rent this house again next year for sure.

Love this house !

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and I recently enjoyed a week of pure bliss in Martha's Vineyard. This house was clean, lovely, fully equipped with anything you might need. The location was superb, close to everything ! Our only regret was staying for one week when we wished it could be TWO weeks !!! We will certainly come again and stay in this lovely house. !!!!

Great vacation house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and immaculate! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed, including a Keurig coffee maker and an espresso maker. Spices too. The beds were extremely comfortable and the 2 bathrooms were very spacious. The deck was large and we took advantage of the gas bbq. Plenty of space too stretch out and relax and a nice big dining table. Close to the beach (beach chairs in the basement), restaurant and shopping. Stop and Shop food market close by too. We had a great and relaxing week with our family and would definitely rent this house again!!! If you are in need of a crib, MV Baby rental delivers and sets up the crib, complete with mattress pad and sheet.
