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 Martha's Vineyard

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!

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.

Great family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

A great location, beautiful-comfortable-spacious home, and lovely private yard perfect for relaxing and exploring Edgartown and surrounding areas of MV. We walked to the market and town and biked down the path to popular South Beach. The owners are very easy to work with.

Lovely Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at this great house. The deck is wonderful, the bedrooms comfortable, the kitchen professional grade. Open and airy but also private, a quiet spot whence to explore town, main street is only a short walk. Another advantage is the close proximity to Morning Glory Farms -- without having to transverse town traffic it's a quick place to get the freshest produce. We had a terrific time and would stay again. The owners are most approachable and accommodating, keeping their home homey and cozy.
