About the property

Classic Chappy Beach House

I have transferable Steamship ferry tickets for June if you need them !!!

You've heard about location, right? If you are looking for a cute, clean, place to vacation on Chappy near the water, this is it. Only a handful of homes can claim views and close proximity to Katama Bay like ours. You can also see the ocean over south beach. Just walk down the yard and with a few extra steps you are at the bay. Birds come and go all day from the tidal pond in front of the house. Shaded sitting area, deck, sunsets over the Vineyard. After a day at the beach, you'll never forget taking an outdoor shower in the afternoon sun. Don't worry, the sides are enclosed for privacy. Kids love it here, so close to the beach. There is endless opportunity to play in the tidal stream and pond and look for wildlife. The sand on the beach in front is great to play in or spend a quiet afternoon away from it all. Fisherman will also appreciate the lighted outdoor filet table. The house is perfectly positioned for afternoon sun, and a cool breeze off the ocean. Sunsets are beautiful, right from the deck and dining room. The kitchen was updated in 2015. The bathroom was updated in 2017. Ask about possible use of paddle boards and bikes. Feel free to contact me with questions, or before requesting a reservation. Summer renters who book early can have me arrange for Steamship auto reservations !!!

About Jeffrey

My folks built the home when I was a toddler. Now it's time for me to take over, and share it with more people who love the island. In the last few years I've made many updates and improvements.

Jeffrey purchased this house in 1969

Why Jeffrey chose Edgartown

Everything is in place for you to have a great vacation on Chappy. With just one bathroom you get a great value compared with homes of a similar location. We routinely have another family visit while we are vacationing, and it's no trouble at all. The outdoor shower makes it easy, so it's as if there is another bathroom. Comparable homes with a second bathroom are renting at much higher prices. I call our's the best deal you can find on the water!

What makes this house unique

Back in the early 70s my dad brought reclaimed wood from a barn in central NY and hand planed the lumber that frames the downstairs interior. Furnished with antiques and modern amenities. It's a short walk down to our semi-private beach on the bay. Unlimited high speed wifi is included!!

My husband and I enjoyed Jeffrey's home enormously. The setting was absolutely lovely, quiet, and surrounded by spectacular views of nature. Jeffrey was available and very helpful. The house was charming and comfortable. We would certainly return!

You can't afford to pass this up.

I just ended one of the bests weeks of my life at the Chappy Beach House. How do you get private, lush, beach accessible, quaint housing in Martha's Vineyard with an in-your-face water view? Go to Chappaquiddick and stay here. Getting the Chappy Ferry added to the mystique of this retreat. The house has a storybook cottage feel and the rooms are charming. To be able to walk to the water each evening and watch the sunset = priceless.

Just as Described

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely home. It was everything we hoped for and more. The homeowner was readily available to answer any and all questions we posed. We will be staying there again as it met all our expectations. It is a perfect place to unwind from the hubbub of everyday life. We felt so refreshed and relaxed after our stay.

Beautiful water views!

  • 5 of 5

We came to this quaint cottage to celebrate our youngest child's graduation from college. We had a wonderful time exploring the island and its many beautiful views. The house was perfect for our family. The cozy kitchen had everything one needs to prepare meals with, and has a very quiet dishwasher. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had. The outdoor shower was a bonus!

Peaceful and Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the house, it was cozy, peaceful and quiet on that part of the island. The view is beautiful as well. Jeff was always there when we contacted him with questions, etc. and he is very nice. Our 2 small dogs came with us and the house was more than enough room for all of us, with even more rooms than we needed.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots/pans/utensils and other paper goods. The deck was one of our favorite spots to relax as well. All in all, we loved our stay.

I highly recommend this rental if you want to enjoy Chappy and have a relaxing vacation away from the world.
