About Marsha and Alan Schaffel

We both love the ocean, biking and many other outdoor activities. We strive to put our love into our recently renovated cottage. The nautical theme is present throughout each room and all furniture as well other items are brand new. Imagine walking to the town center at anytime for coffee, a bite to eat while gazing and sunbathing at the beautiful beach. We hope you have a wonderful stay in our close-to-everything cottage but with plenty of privacy.

Marsha and Alan Schaffel purchased this house in 2013

Why Marsha and Alan Schaffel chose Martha's Vineyard

The Martha's Vineyard mystique has been with us for many years. It's like going back in time without sacrificing life's modern conveniences.

What makes this house unique

We love the privacy, architecture and the perfect location for a getaway to remember.

Martha's Vineyard Winner

Really enjoyed our time at Martha's Vineyard and the house was a major part of that. Relaxing. Well kept. Attentive owner and a great location that was just far and close enough to everything we wanted to do.
