About the property
- House1500 sqft
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay4 - 7 nights
4 bdrm, 1 bath. Sleeps 6. Exclusive beach access, huge yard, centrally located!
Come and visit my sweet and comfortable home for an authentic 'Vineyarder' experience.
This property is about a 5 minute walk from the main street of Vineyard Haven, about 7 min walk from the ferry, the supermarket, AND A NICE, QUIET BEACH, and 1 min to the bus stop (flag down bus at the end of the road), making it easy to avoid bringing a car on-island and saving the hassle of making a ferry ticket reservation.
This quiet neighborhood used to be a farm and part of this house was the farmhouse. Today, ancient grapevines nestle around the outdoor shower. There is a large private back yard and a shed for storing bikes etc. The stylish landscaping accents the secluded deck which has a shaded table with chairs and grill!!
This house offers wood floors, lots of bedroom space, a useful kitchen, excellent entertainment system, lots of closet and clothing storage space, a bathtub and shower, art works from my travels around the world, and from the national parks I have visited. Conveniently located close to town/amenities and centrally to any point on island, this cute house is a great option for your island vacation.
I rent June-September and prefer Sat-Sat stays. Cleaning fee included.

About Troy Silva
Born and raised on island I have traveled all over the world. Currently I live here year round and I really enjoy my job of land surveying and on my off time I equally enjoy walking my favorite trails and beaches here and when its windy you will find me kite boarding. The house was built from a farmhouse moved to the property by my fathers parents who came from the Azore islands of Portugal back in the early 1900's . My father was actually delivered in one of the rooms upstairs. I really enjoy living here because of the sentimentality and it fits my life very well. I hope you enjoy my home (and traveling!) as much as I do! Support Local! Because I live on The Island year-round I am always just a phone call away and available to help in any way I can any time.
Why Troy Silva chose Vineyard Haven
I really enjoy living in this house because of the obvious sentimental value. Furthermore the rustic, cozy, comfortable environment has really become my favorite feature. However I've also found over the years that the location is just so convenient. Growing up on island one might consider living in VH, OB or downtown EDG like living near or in a city, or more urban environment. This has obviously become very amusing after having seen so much of the rest of the world. I truly do love my house and the island its on.
What makes this House unique
The front yard and the big backyard are enclosed by dense privet hedges and shrubs. This house is so close to town, but still offers privacy!

Great home! So comfortable!
We had a wonderful stay at Troy's home. Biked all day, short walk to town, and relaxed on the adorable deck. Great place for a MV getaway. We would stay here again.
The owner is very nice and was available when called on.
However, the house was much smaller than we expected and the air conditioning was only in the bedrooms. The rest of the house was hot even though there were ceiling and portable fans available.
Overall MV is an Amazing place to vacation with the family. Thanks, Troy for allowing us to stay at your home.
Very comfortable and great location
We were minutes from everything we needed and we had easy access to areas up island. The house was perfect for our kids and our dog. Troy is a great host and we look forward to staying there again.
Perfect spot....Great location!
We had a wonderful time in Martha's Vineyard. This is as a once in a lifetime trip for our family of five. And we couldn't have been luckier than to stay at this perfect house in a perfect location. Troy was so gracious and responsive to any need or question we had. We were a stones throw from downtown Vineyard Haven. We could walk to town and the adjacent beach. And our kids loved walking into town for ice cream! We felt so at home in Troys house and we all LOVED the outdoor shower! Thank you Troy for a most wonderful week!
Wonderful place to explore the Vineyard. The place is exactly as advertised.
We had a fabulous vacation and Troy was most helpful and responsive.
Had everything we needed , loved the outdoor shower and the deck. Beds were comfortable, We would stay again!
No Car Needed!!! This house is a 12 min walk or $5 cab ride from the ferry and beach.... it's an 8 min walk to town, or 1 min stroll to the bus stop. You can walk to restaurants, shops, gardens, the water, the Black Dog Tavern and many other attractions. Convenient, cute, comfortable and clean home! Easily everything that The Vineyard has to offer!
