CAR FERRY RESERVATIONS TO TRANSFER AT COST : Our new, sunny, smartly-furnished Colonial-style home offers a perfect, private Vineyard vacation retreat. We are located on 1.1 green acres, set 100-feet back from a paved road just steps from the bike path and two miles from Long Point, a magnificent ocean beach with a pond for swimming and water sports.

Our convenient, mid-Island location also allows easy access to Edgartown Village, Katama (South Beach), Morning Glory Farm, Vineyard Haven, and quaint, 'up-Island' delights, such as Menemsha and Beetlebung Corner. Groceries, restaurants, health clubs and shopping are just minutes away.

But, you also will have a glorious time relaxing on our property. Our large backyard is flat, fenced-in and green, with plenty of space for outdoor games, and you will love unwinding in our 20 X 40 ft. pool (with a new salt-based, saline system, for a comfortable, clean swim without the irritation of chemicals, a custom stone pool deck and private outdoor shower with a changing room for your convenience) and on our large back deck, which includes a gas grill and lovely, new deck furniture.

Inside, our large, spotless, modern kitchen serves as 'the heart of our home,' complete with spacious white Corian countertops, maple cabintry, new appliances, including a refrigerator with an icemaker, dishwasher and microwave, and a center island equipped with chairs, and a table and chairs for breakfast or lunch. There's a separate dining room, too. Our living room includes new furniture, a flat-screen TV, a game table, a fireplace and easy access to our deck. There's a half-bath located off the kitchen.

Upstairs you will find four bedrooms. Our huge master suite has a new king bed with a comfy, Temperpedic mattress, a new flat-screen TV, a spacious, en-suite bathroom with double sinks, a tub, and shower, a large, organized walk-in closet, a ceiling fan, and a new all-to-wall carpet. There are three additional bedrooms: two with queen beds, and one with bunk twins (all-new mattresses). There is an ample hallway bath with a tub, shower and double sink.

And that's not all: Our basement is newly-finished, with a large, cheerful playroom equipped with toys and games for all ages, a ping pong table and a laundry area with a washer, dryer and folding area. Don't forget your laptop, because we have free WiFi.

We provide sheets and bed linens, but not towels. A cleaning fee will be deducted from your security deposit. We do not allow smoking on our property, and we do not allow pets.

About Elaine Friedman

We fell in love with Martha's Vineyard and rented houses for our annual summer vacations for 20 years before buying our own island home, and we know all about the 'good, the bad and the ugly' with some rental houses. Among the many reasons we purchased such a fabulous home is for our own cherished family vacations. We want our home to be 'just so' when we -- and all of our rental guests -- arrive: spotless, well maintained with new furniture, fresh paint, screens without holes, a state-of-the-art grill (that works!!), plentiful deck furniture and lounge chairs to relax. A special bonus is our salt-system pool, where we enjoy swimming, splashing and relaxing before or after wonderful days spent at the beach, biking or in town. We know that you will love our home for your Martha's Vineyard vacation as much as we do!! Enjoy!!

Elaine Friedman purchased this house in 2008

Why Elaine Friedman chose Edgartown

We love our convenient, mid-island location. We're so close to Long Point Beach and other beautiful beaches, up-island (West Tisbury, Chilmark & Menemnsha for sunsets!), the down-island towns of Edgartown, Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven, and we love our 'short hop' to the State Forest bike path!!! Our home is private, our neighborhood is quiet, and our road is paved!

What makes this house unique

It's difficult to find a rental at this price that offers everything that we do: a spacious, mint-condition home, a large, private pool, a playroom for the kids (complete with toys and ping pong table), privacy, quiet, and excellent proximity to beaches, bike path, shopping, restaurants and all the attractions that make Martha's Vineyard the ideal vacation destination.

We were a family group of 6 adults and 4 children, ages 10 months to 5 years. The well maintained home was just right for us and lived up to its description! The private pool and yard are fantastic and the location is also terrific, right in the middle of the island, and easy to get everywhere. The owners truly care and were constantly in contact with us to make sure everything was as it should be. We would definitely consider returning and highly recommend this vacation home!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your wonderful comments. We, too, appreciate the location -- it's so easy to get to all the places (beaches, bike path, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing) that make Martha's Vineyard a truly special vacation destination. We're so glad our home met your expectations for your family's vacation.

Vineyard vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed using this immaculate family friendly home for our holiday. Sometimes, when I rent a holiday home I am not pleased with the standard of cleanliness, this was a home that meet and even exceeded my high standards!! The owners were very helpful and responsive to some issues (as there always are in a house). The alarm accidentally was set off as the cleaners set it prior to our arrival. Be assured you and your family/ guests will be comfortable.

It was private be easy to get to the bike trail (across the road), easy to drive anywhere on the island. Our family and friends that stopped by thought the back garden was wonderful. We had space to BBQ, let the children play and swim. The neighborhood of interconnected streets enabled my young children to have daily bicycle rides, that the whole family enjoyed.

One of my daughters said, the only things she would have done was to stay the whole month and wished our lapdogs could have stayed in their crate on the deck.

It is a well maintained home that we enjoyed greatly. Certainly, I will recommend it to family and friends going to the vineyard.

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our home and your vacation on the beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard. We're happy to hear that we immediately corrected the alarm issue to your satisfaction because we pride ourselves on our accessibility to our renters and our ability to promptly address issues that sometimes may arise during a rental. We're extremely pleased that the cleanliness of our home exceeded your standards. We, too, are demanding in that area, and we expect our renters to find our home as spotless upon arrival as we expect it to be for ourselves. We would love to have your family stay for a month next time; however, we can't accommodate dogs and/or other pets because we, ourselves, have allergy issues, as well as many prospective renters who need our home to be "pet allergy free" for those, and other, reasons. Many thanks for your thoughtful review.

Great MV house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is comfortable, well cared for, and well-appointed. The kitchen contained everything we needed to cook pretty much every night. The beds are comfortable as well. We had a family of five adults and four kids, and there was plenty of room. The yard and pool are both large, we spent a lot of our time outside on the deck, in the pool, and playing ball in the yard. The home is located within 10-15 min of three great beaches...and having a pool to come home to was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this home to others and would stay here again.

Perfect Family Rental on Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and well-maintained home a short drive from the center of Edgartown and beaches. Our favorite feature is the "in perfect condition" swimming pool and backyard. Late afternoon swims and bar-b-q's are a favorite. Our 3 children also love the playroom in the basement and we've enjoyed many family ping-pong tournaments! The bike trail is steps from the house and is a source of much family enjoyment. The owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful - the Martha's Vineyard Tips that is left for renters is publication worthy!! We have stayed in this home for the past 3 years and look forward to our time there this coming summer. Highly Recommended.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your wonderful review. We're happy that you find our "MV Tips" helpful, and that our home works so well for your family's MV vacations. We, too, enjoy our home's close proximity to the beaches and bike paths -- just thinking about mornings and afternoons at the ocean, splashing in the pool before dinner, delicious cookouts, fresh local produce and fun family bike rides to Edgartown Village, Oak Bluffs and Morning Glory Farm makes us yearn for summertime on the Vineyard. We're thrilled that your family is returning to our home -- cheers!!

Family summer vacation on Martha's vineyard

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful vacation home within a short drive of Edgartown and the most beautiful beaches on the island. The house is in perfect condition, with all the modern conveniences, and a huge basement for the kids to play in. The most distinctive feature of this house is the pool, which is in excellent condition and extremely clean. There is a patio / deck overlooking pool with an outdoor sound system, so if you have young kids or teenagers, this is perfect. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly - there is a detailed information list ready for you when you arrive, so it's like checking into a luxury accommodation. We love this house, having gone there for a number of years, and plan to go back. I highly recommend this.
