Lovely one bedroom guest cottage with water views of Sengecontacket and the ocean. It is fully equipped and is air conditioned. It has parking and is less than 3 miles to Edgartown harbor and convenient to State Beach and South Beach. The bedroom features a queen size bed and there is a living room and dining area with the water view. It is a lovely spot to enjoy all the amenities of Martha's Vineyard. There are bikes available for your use. There is a paved bike path on the Vineyard Haven Edgartown Rd as well as a a bus stop. The bus service is very good on the island, but it is good to have a car and we do have parking.

Quante & Cozy
Cozy, well equipped little cottage with a beautiful view over to State Beach! Perfect for what we looking for! Came over for a long weekend to attend a wedding in Edgartown and didn't feel like dealing with a hotel! The owners, Mimi and Peter, are very nice! I was happy that I had read one review that mentioned that you actually get to the home from 3rd Street, even though the address is technically 4th Street. Recommend!
Not worth the stay
We had a 3 night stay we expected better for the price. The shack is a 2 car garage converted into a love shack. Previous visitor May 2018 complained mold mildew smell when you open door we were hoping this was really not like that as the owner responded it was professional cleaned the day before. I guess it was not professionally cleaned for us as either as when we walked in it was mold and mildew smelling but overall the place was clean. When we got home we found the clothes we did not wear smelled and had to be cleaned. Bathroom no AC outlet I had to use the outlet in the bedroom for shaving and my wife for hair drying and the outlet there is intermittent so kept losing power so bring lots of extension cords. Fridge worked, WIFI just good, spiders and webs all over the place to include under chairs and table. There are gaps cracks around air conditioner, screen door not sure why there is a screen door as bottom of door is 1 to 2 inch gap and cracks in the main door so no wonder there was a few crickets and bugs getting in. The shower water temp was just warm to periods of cold. The owner Mini was very nice and offered suggestions I figured no sense in saying the room smelled of mildew as she should know that. The gun club nearby was hardly noticeable when they were skeet shooting. Real close to beach which we enjoyed. I asked for the address about 2 days before we left when we got there we found if you go down the street it is on it does not get you there as it dead ends, you need to go down a different street and before you get to the end you can come up the back driveway on right or continue to end turn right and then take next right onto the property which we had to call the owner to find out when we got there this should be in the listing or tell us that in the email. Also bring bug spray for the mosquitoes I got a few bites until I bought some. No rodents for us or roof leaks so we give it a 2 star rating.
Love Shack with a view of the Atlantic
Convenient location and a nice view! We enjoyed mornings in the cottage with an ocean view facing east. It would have been nice to see the sunrise, but we slept in. The owner's home is right next door. The owners are very friendly and helpful about getting around the island. The cottage size accommodates a couple well. Everything was clean and in working order. We traveled around the island, visiting lots of beaches, happy hour in Oak Bluffs, Gay Head Lighthouse.
Charming Edgartown cottage
We really enjoyed our stay. The owners were wonderful and the cottage was very cute and accommodating. The owners provided bikes which we used to ride into Edgartown during the day. The cottage is located in a quiet area with a beautiful view of the beach and ocean in the distance. Even though the cottage is located within a short distance of Edagrtown, I would still recommend renting a vehicle to enjoy the entire experience of the island. Especially if you plan on spending any time after dark downtown. Hard to ride the bikes home in the dark. Overall I would definitely recommend the cottage and owners for your stay!!!!
So much fun! All of our needs met.
We had a great stay in the "Love Shack" just behind the landlord's lovely home on the hill overlooking the waters. It was basic, yes--a bedroom, living area, small kitchen--but that was what we sought. We weren't looking for fancy because we spend nearly all of our time outside and at the water. A great price point for MV. The place was clean and ready upon our arrival. The family wasn't only cheerful and very attentive to our needs, when they caught a 380 pound tuna, they gave us two large choice cuts, some of the freshest and best bluefin we have ever had. I recommend this place and these people.
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.
