About Stephanie Earl

Full-time NYC dwellers, my husband and I love our time in the Vineyard shared with family and friends.

Stephanie Earl purchased this house in 2002

Why Stephanie Earl chose Katama

This is the perfect home in the perfect location with the perfect setting. It's close to tony Edgartown village (the best gem of the island towns, for sure!) but private for a quiet, secluded holiday.

What makes this house unique

The backyard deck, pond and garden will lure you in for leisurely morning coffee & newspapers and late afternoons spent snoozing, playing horseshoes or badminton or napping in the shade with a book or a beer!

Fantastic winter getaway!! 5 stars!!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a cozy, quaint family getaway after the frenzied holidays, and this property delivered! Great property...cozy, warm, great fire place, with an airy/light aura/décor...the perfect blend of old, new. We sat by the fire every night, made puzzles, conversed with our teenage children, played games; it was wonderful. The house was perfect on all fronts. It was clean, had comfortable beds, cozy throws, and all the necessary amenities plus GREAT location. It was just perfect, and we would definitely rent this property again. The owners were great as well - and very quick to respond to any questions, via text (so very convenient). THANK YOU!!

Owner's Response: Thank you again for staying "with us" and for leaving such a nice review about the house. We love the Vineyard off-season more and more and glad you found it as special and relaxing as we do. The location of the house has truly been one of its greatest assets - for strolling to town, hopping on the many convenient bike paths (perhaps not during a cold December visit like yours!) or setting out to explore the island. We hope to see you again and all the best for this new year!

Amazing home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Stephanie and Fred were very kind and attentive owners, and their home was an amazing find in Edgartown. The house (especially including the deck and yard) was spacious enough to comfortably accommodate two families - much larger than the photos appear. Easy access to town and South beach. We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us and for the kind review. We'd love to have you back again! Thanks for mentioning that the pictures make the house look smaller than it is. We always find there's plenty of room for group activities as well as quiet "down time" for everyone.

It is a beautiful property perfectly located walking distance to Edgartown and the bike path to South beach. It is a very easy walk to town but out of the congestion. Very comfortable interior space with excellent lighting even on rainy days. Perfect place for time with family!

Summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for 1 week in this beautiful rental. There were 5 of us, my husband and I, and our 3 adult children. It was FABULOUS that we all had our own bathroom , but for the shower we all LOVED the outdoor shower. The house and deck made the area very spacious for us all .

We made many family meals in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed eating either on the deck or indoors on the "grand " dining table.

The house is minutes from the bike path to South beach and we made the beach loop every morning....beautiful.

The house is very walkable to town but in a private setting.

The owners made sure we were comfortable and responded very quickly to any questions we had.

We loved the rental and recommend it highly.

Great House & Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this great home, very clean, spacious and private with a great back yard. Easy walk into town and a short distance to the beach. House does not feel like a rental as the owners, who were so easy to work with, have taken great care of this property. Would highly recommend and would absolutely return in the future.

The area is not a teeming as during as during July/August.

The owners were very accommodating to our requests.
