Gay Head House Rental Photos and Description

Aquinnah is the perfect destination to enjoy the serenity, uniqueness and profound beauty of Martha's Vineyard while away from the hustle and bustle of down island tourists. On the outskirts of Chilmark, it is the sought-after sanctuary for celebrities, artists and naturalists alike.

Just a 3-minute walk to picturesque Lobsterville Beach and and a 10-minute walk to Jaws' famed Menemsha Pond (great for small children!), our sun-splashed 2-bedroom Cape offers a secluded, private retreat ideal for couples and small families with ample space for 6 guests. New to the rental market, freshly painted (with non-VOC paints), brand new furniture, linens and more. Upscale amenities and conveniences include:

* Easy access to Aquinnah’s historic cliffs and lighthouse

* Walking distance to Lobsterville Beach and the famed Dogfish Bar, Menemsha Pond & bike ferry, and the Gay Head Moraine , a scenic MV Land Bank trail

* A large, private sun deck with grassy yard, grill and 4-person hot tub

* Open, airy space for lounging, reading and entertaining

* Teak patio furniture for outdoor relaxation

* Plush 'boutique hotel' bedding and linens

* Everything you need for the beach: towels, chairs, cooler and umbrella

Colorful, fully equipped gourmet kitchen offers every gadget you can imagine - including access to unique appliances such as an espresso maker, pancake griddle and Keurig coffee maker. Second floor boasts a master suite with King-sized bed and fluffy white linens; a second bedroom with Queen-sized bed and oversized chair (twin pullout); full bath with his and her pedestal sinks; and many skylights offering natural light.

Why Dan and Jane Sims chose Aquinnah

When we found the house on Lobsterville Road we fell in love with everything about it. Aquinnah is at the outermost point of Martha's Vineyard, it is away from the hectic crowds of down island and yet just a short drive via some of the most picturesque roads imaginable where working artisan farm pastures roll gently into the Atlantic.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy romps through Edgartown and Oak Bluffs and then drive back to your 'up island' retreat. Walk to Lobsterville Beach and Menemsha, and enjoy exclusive access to Philbin Beach with your lease, one of the most famed beaches on the island and the East Coast. You are just over a mile to the Gay Head cliffs and lighthouse, a National Historic Landmark, offering breathtaking ocean vistas.
