About Barbara Ronchetti

I enjoy meeting my guests, and am truly concerned about the enjoyment and comfort of my guests in my homes.

I am the owner, founder of Island Alpaca Co. I hope you can visit my farm while visiting the island this summer. Fun for all ages!

Island Alpaca Company of Martha's Vineyard began in 2004 with the purchase of 19 acres of land and an antique post-and-beam barn that once stood in Export PA. Over the next two years, the barn was assembled, pastures were cleared, and fencing installed. The original purchase of eight alpacas in 2004 had grown to a starter herd of 31, which moved into the barn in 2006. Today, Island Alpaca has a select herd of over 50 colorful Huacaya alpaca.

Barbara Ronchetti purchased this house in 1995

Why Barbara Ronchetti chose Edgartown

Clean, comfortable, well appointed, best kitchen, great piano, televisions in every room, and air-conditioned. Charming outdoor space. Location cannot be beat!

Edgartown Home

We enjoyed our stay. Beautiful home with a well-stocked kitchen utentils, appliances, and pots/pans. It was in a terrific centralized location on the island. We biked from town to town and to the beach! Only downside is that neighbors are very close in proximity.

So nice to be close to town!

  • 5 of 5

Barbara was wonderful - the house has everything a guest could want and is walking distance to town plus the supermarket and always important Dairy Queen and bike rental shop (top choices of the children!). Don't expect much of a view due to the location but you are a short walk or bike ride from the best MV has to offer. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic Vineyard Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Recently completed renovations to this beautiful cottage home made our week in Martha's Vineyard a pleasure. It has an open concept chef's kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The home is warm, cozy and roomy. Excellent location with an easy less than 1 mile walk to downtown Edgartown. Fine dining within steps from this home and a full service grocery store and liquor store across the street. It sits on a quiet side street and has a beautiful patio and yard perfect for outdoor barbecues. A hidden gem. Hope to be back soon.

We enjoyed a wonderful week at the Edgartown Cape in June. We have been making it a tradition every year to go to the Vineyard for our anniversary, but this was the first year to go since our daughter arrived! She is 16 months old and the house was great for her. Nice yard, basement full of toys, her own bedroom! We had some friends join us later in the week and the house accomodated everyone perfectly. The best part is the proximity to downtown Edgartown. Just a short stroll and you're there! we had perfect weather all week so we took a walk to town almost every day!

thanks for a great week Barbara!

Three friends and I enjoyed Barbara's nicely appointed, well equiped home the first of May. At the end of the day, it was a wonderful haven in which to return..a book, a fire, a glass of wine and good friends. You could nestle in on a comfy sofa or there was plenty of room to be alone, if desired. The home, situated in a perfect location, had everything we needed.

Don't forget to visit the Alpaca Farm. Great shop, but the animals are wonderful. Barbara loves each and every one of them.

The is the house you have been searching for if you want to "make memories" on the Vineyard.

Downtown Edgartown:

To view and appreciate Edgartown fully, you must walk its streets. North Water Street has a row of captains’ houses not equaled anywhere. Study the fanlights and widows walks by day and stroll down the streets after the lamps are lit.

South Water Street is dominated by a huge pagoda tree brought from China as a seedling by Captain Thomas Milton in the early days of the last century. The house beyond it was that of Captain Valentine Pease, on whose ship Herman Melville made his only whaling voyage.

Many houses in Edgartown predate the whaling era. Most are private residences, but three notable ones are serving other needs. The Vincent House (built in 1672, the oldest known house on the Island) and the Thomas Cooke House are museums. At 34 South Summer Street, you’ll find the home built by Benjamin Smith in 1760. It is now the office of the Vineyard Gazette.

There are excellent public beaches in the township of Edgartown. Norton’s Point, known as Katama, is a barrier beach providing surf bathing and the opportunity to explore Katama Bay on the other side of the dunes. Wasque and Cape Poge on Chappaquiddick are both unspoiled areas owned and maintained by The Trustees of Reservations. They are favorite spots for bluefish and bass fishermen. Lighthouse Beach, located off North Water Street near the town center, offers calm water and views of harbor activities. Bend-in-the-Road Beach, part of Joseph Sylvia Beach, has ample parking and is accessible by bicycle trail.

The famous Old Whaling Church with its six massive columns commands Main Street. Built in 1843 at the height of the whaling industry, the Church was given to the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust in 1980. It has been transformed into a performing arts center. Next door is the Dr. Daniel Fisher House, built three years before the Old Whaling Church.

Island Alpaca Farm: One brilliant outing for an individual or a family, is Island Alpaca Farm. Island Alpaca is home to over 80 alpaca, and one gentle lllama. The staff is attentive to visitors, and will share a bit of the 'alpaca lifestyle' with you. A great way to spend the afternoon. Not to miss, their on-site gift store and their Alpaca Discovery morning program.

The Flying Horses Carousel:

The oldest operating carousel in the US and a national historic heritage landmark, the Flying Horses Carousel, is one of the most entertaining and nostalgic things to do in Martha’s Vineyard. Prices have stood still in time, means that kids can go around again and again. A merry go round like no other, and a must do for all kids visiting Martha’s Vineyard.

Felix Neck Sanctuary:

Felix Neck is about three miles outside the center of town on Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road. The 200 acres, owned by the Massachusetts Audubon Society, provide marked trails and a program of wildlife management and conservation education throughout the year.

Sail Across Edgartown Harbor:

Get unparalleled views of the island from the comfort and luxury of some of the finest yachts in the bay. Pack the champers and the strawberries and get on out onto the water. If you don’t have your own yacht you can hire one for the day or for the duration of your stay. If you don’t have a yacht nor can you actually skipper one, but want to experience sailing on the bay, then charter a luxury yacht with a skipper and small crew, who will be able to pour your champers for you, so you won’t have to lift a manicured finger.

Visit Chappy:

The protected hideaway of Chappaquiddick is an historic island tucked away behind Edgartown Harbor. Hire a bicycle and chill like a local, cruise down to the harbor to Dock Street, take your bicycle and pop onto the ferry. Half an hour later, ride your bike off the ferry and pedal leisurely around the island. Ride over the Dike Bridge, the place where the infamous Ted Kennedy incident took place.


For one of the most unique Martha’s Vineyard activities, hire a kayak and head on down to Edgartown Harbor, Sengekontacket Pond or Katama Bay, and explore the corners of Martha’s Vineyard by water. Glide through tucked away ponds and harbors, experience bird life in their natural habitat, and stop off in one of the bays for a packed picnic lunch.

Mytoi Gardens:

Who would have thought that Martha’s Vineyard is home to some of the most spectacular Japanese Gardens? Snuggled away on Chappaquiddick, are the Mytoi Gardens. Enchanting Zen gardens, Japanese maple trees and the stunning pond, complete with a low standing Japanese bridge, will take your breath away and is worth the visit.

Other favorite Locals: Aquinnah Cliffs, the Red Barn Gallery, and Vineyard GlassWorks.

Some of the best things to do in Martha’s Vineyard are right on your doorstep, whether you are going for a relaxed family weekend or a roaring 3 day party, this play ground for the rich and famous will not disappoint. Just a few Things to Do in Martha’s Vineyard only scrapes the surface!
