Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are attorneys who live most of the year in New Albany, Ohio and have vacationed on Martha's Vineyard regularly since 1980. We have travelled many places, but believe Martha's Vineyard is one of the best places on earth! We purchased our home in Vineyard Haven in 2008 as a gathering place for our extended family. We love it and hope your family will as well.

Why the Owner Chose Vineyard Haven, MA, USA:
The house is two blocks from the beach and downtown Vineyard Haven. Vineyard Haven has great shopping, restaurants, and proximity to the ferry and island-wide bus service. It is home to the island's best bookstore, home decor stores, galleries, coffee shops and 4 theaters! Unlike the other towns on Martha's Vineyard, most of the Vineyard Haven stores and restaurants remain open in the off-season. This is the ninth year that we have made this home available to the rental market. During those eight years, we have never had an open week; we have never deducted any amount from a rental deposit; and we have had many, many repeat rentals. Many people re-book for next year at the conclusion of their stay. Accordingly, there are only a few weeks during the summer that this property is available. We have many more reviews that we can share from a competing rental website, if you would like to see them just let us know! Our shingle style house was built in 1898 by William Barry Owen, a local businessman, real estate developer and owner of the Martha's Vineyard Bank. The park and beach, one block from our home, was named in his honor. The home was sold to Captain Henry Stevenson, it's first occupant, in 1898. Captain Stevenson owned a freight boat, the Eben A. Thatcher, which was a fixture in Vineyard Haven harbor for many years. The house remained in Captain Stevenson's family until we purchased it from his granddaughter in 2008.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location of this property, near both the beach and downtown, is an unbeatable combination. You will find yourself walking everywhere. The house's character, in-town location, expansive porch, view of Vineyard Haven harbor, and proximity to Owen Park Beach (one block), sold us instantly. It is rare to find a property that allows the occupants to easily enjoy both the beach and a downtown atmosphere.
