About Tarah Hirschey

This property has been in my family for generations. I spent childhood summers here. The tranquil environment of Aquinnah (previously known as Gay Head) allowed for lots of beaching, boating, biking, sailing, kayaking. The current house was built in 2008. My grandparents' summer cottage and art studio were there previously.

Tarah Hirschey purchased this house in 2014

This is alovely home with a gorgeous view. We loved our stay here. The house is peaceful, airy and very comfortable. The owner was so helpful in answering questions and suggesting ideas to make the most of our time in this very special corner of the Island.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. We had our grandkids with us and had just enough space. We love the quiet of up island away from all the hustle and bustle of tourist season on MV. It's a good 30-45 min drive to OB, VH and Edgartown but it's the prettiest drive on the island past Menemsha and Chillmark. The beds are comfy, linens are nice and kitchen is well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely adorable home! Away from the traffic and crowds our family enjoyed unplugged splendor. The beaches on this end of the Island are spectacular! Walks at sunset beneath the nationally historic Clay Cliffs were breathtaking. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your family's home.

Amazing relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This house is so open and the views are so amazing from the enormous deck, I was so relaxed and energized. I loved getting up early looking out over the water high up on that hill. Often I'd do work on the deck before the kids woke up. It's proximity to such a variety of beaches is amazing: catching hermit crabs at low tide in the warm pond beach, a refreshing swim at the sound beach, and amazing ocean beach with the surf endless stretches of sand. All within minutes. And the private outdoor shower in the sun is incredible. The meals were able to have with the local fish market were also amazing. Such a treat to be at your house!!

Wonderful time on the Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks on the Vineyard in your lovely home. The home is wonderful, with spectacular views of the sound. We awoke to gorgeous sunrises every morning coming through the windows. This part of the island is very relaxing - away from the tourists and hustle of Edgartown. We had the beaches mostly to ourselves. My kids loved catching horseshoe crabs and digging for clams at the beach at the end of Lobsterville Road. Thanks again for an amazing vacation in your beautiful home.

Additional information about rental rates

Damage Deposit $500

We have listed a Saturday to Saturday requirement. Most rentals on the Vineyard have a change over day on Saturday or Sunday. Sometimes this poses a problem for getting car reservations on the ferry (since everyone is vying for the same dates). We are willing to be somewhat flexible if needed.

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
