Incredibly convenient spacious house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Christina's house was great. The house was spacious for 9 of us and Christina was kind enough to accommodate early check-in. The house is ~2 minutes walking from shops, restaurants, and the waterfront.

This was the first time to Martha's Vineyard. On our annual ladies trip we usually try to find a beautiful spot that is also safe with great food and great shopping. Martha's Vineyard had it all. The house was truly amazing and the location just could not be better. The only negative is the steep stairs up to the second floor. We had a group of four late middle age women and we had to have help getting up and down the stairs with our bags. Overall the stay was just wonderful!

Everything advertised and then some!!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a treat, I almost don't know where to begin. Everything was seamless from the inception with this Rental. Christina the owner was beyond what you would expect in terms of hospitality, she went above and beyond before we met with additional pictures being emailed prior to my arrival. Once we arrived it was unbelievable how she over extended herself, assisting with rides, information all the things that you may not expect, nor should you. Nothing was too much. Now let's talk about the property. The pics do not show the amazing layout which offers pristine rooms each quite lovely and impeccable. As are all the spaces. Lovely garden and unbelievably it's on a Main Street the heart of Edgartown!! My family and I considered this a true gem and intend to make it our annual rental for as long as they will have us. Our vacation was perfect and it started with the perfect home in the best location with the perfect hostess. I would strongly recommend this home!!
