What makes this Cottage unique
This is a cozy spot, not far from downtown Edgartown and the beach. There is parking if you bring a car, but the bike path and bus are very near if you do not. There is a small kitchen and a water view.

As you are reading this review we did the same before renting this property. We did see some negative comments but brushed them off thinking they might just be picky people. They were being kind. The pics are taken carefully in this add. Notice their are no pics of the outside of the "cottage". This is not a cottage, it is a two car garage. It still has the garage doors. It is rotten on the outside, never keeped up. The yard is a mess with old trash and the grass had not been cut. The inside was really bad. When you open the door the smell hits you. Mold /mildew! There was a dehumidifier that was full when we got there. I had to empty it. The fridge did not work only the freezer. Most of the window did not open. There was a drip in the pipes, kitchen and bath that had plastic cups under them to catch the drip. REALLY! No one was around to talk to, so my wife and I tried our best to air it out. Even went to Stop and Shop for Fabreeze and air fesheners. Didnt help much. Open holes in the cubords, ants all over the sink and counters. Ya Great! Spiders day and night. Big gaps in the screen door so the skeeters came in. A sliding door with no deck to step out onto, just a 12 to 15 inch drop to the 10 inch grass. There is no hot water for dishes and showering. Only luke warm and sometimes cold water from an under sized constant heating unit. At night you lay in bed listening to the rodent running in the walls and attic. This property should not ruin another persons vacation. It should be taken off HomeAway! The only reason we are giving it one star is because it was quite and the roof did not leak.
This review saddened me and made me wonder how anyone could find so many things wrong with a rental and and not let the owner know about them. I was in touch with this renter several times while they were there, and they said they loved our coffee table and wanted to buy it and they said they loved the peace and quiet. There was no mention of anything wrong.
The "Love Shack " had been professionally cleaned just before they arrived and I had been in it before and after they were there. I know there was plenty of hot water as I washed dishes that they left, and I checked the refrigerator and freezer. It is less than a year old and is working fine.
If I were renting a place that I was this unhappy with, I would certainly have contacted the owner to try to rectify things, and not give the impression that everything was fine and then give the place a bad review.
If you are considering this rental, I want you to know that It is rented almost all season and has been for many summers. I have had many happy renters and quite a few return renters.
Perfect for our needs
My son and his girlfriend vacationed here and enjoyed it. It was perfect for their needs with just enough space and a great price point.
Thank you for the nice review. Your son and girlfriend are a very nice couple and I'm glad they enjoyed their stay at our guest house.
It was okay
Not what I expected, water view yes, not exactly what one thinks. The 'cottage' was quaint, about 10 minute drive to town. Would've be nice to have a DVD player and a bigger bed. Over all it's okay. Never had a key though and had to leave the sliding door unlocked as the 'door' wouldn't unlock. The locals are unbelievably nice and full of info. Food was good and the restaurant staff are so nice.
Perfect for what we were looking for. Nice quite get away weekend on the Vineyard. Cottage was basic, but had everything we needed. Hosts were very nice.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Please keep us in mind for another time.
Quaint and central
Guest house was perfect for our needs. Not within walking distance to town several miles from both Oak Bluffs and Edgartown but central between the 2 locations. Bikes were available and could easily get to Edgartown but not practical to get to Oak Bluffs or South Beach which is by far best beach! Would definitely stay again!
I gave a 1 star review for the following reasons:
The guest house had lots of spiders, moths, and other bugs that managed to enter the residence every day and night. It was extremely uncomfortable, and almost unbearable to constantly worry about all the bugs.
There was a very musty and damp smell in the house, and no dehumidifier to help the cause. My girlfriend and I both have sinus infections, and I wouldn't be surprised if there was mold in the house because of the dampness.
The guest house was listed on 4th street, but the entrance was on 3rd street. This was not given in the description, and I only found the residence because of my understanding of the streets in the Vineyard.
We were woken up by the rod and gun club every morning, and this should be divulged in the description.
We reached out to the host because the advertised wifi was nonexistent, and got no response.
The view was nice, and the property has potential to be a nice cozy getaway. Under the current conditions, it was very unpleasant and we debating leaving after the first night. The fact that we payed over 150 dollars per night to live in this bug infested shack will continue to bug me until my next visit.
I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay at our guest house. I wish you had said something when you were here and we would have tried to make things better for you. . There is a dehumidifier as well as an AC unit. Maybe using them would have helped. Again, I wish you had said something as there is wifi ,and we would have made sure it was working. You seemed as though you were enjoying your stay , but I'm sorry that you didn't. MIMI
I'm very sorry that
