This was a wonderful property with pool, nice layout, and private seclusion; it was perfect for our family and friends. Upon arrival we met the owner who was lovely. We needed her help one time during our stay. She was prompt with her response and fixed the issue. The house was clean and well maintained. We used the kitchen for almost every meal and it was well equipped for a family to use. We would definitely go back!
Gorgeous house, secluded setting
I am a dance artist who stayed here during a residency at The Yard. The house is immaculate and the owner has beautiful taste in furnishings. The kitchen has everything you need. How wonderful to have a pool to plunge in after a day at the nearby beach! The property is quiet and far from the road, so nights are peaceful and you wake up to bird song and the wind rustling the trees. There are plenty of amenities nearby but you get peace and quiet here.
I hope you danced in the moonlight up there!
An airy getaway with plenty of distant ocean breezes to sooth the soul on a hot day. The pool, though not deep, was a delight, and the master bedroom and living room were especially spacious. A central perch for visiting anywhere on the island.
Magical Stay in Tranquility
This property really impressed me! My group was looking for a spacious house with a pool and this property delivered. The overall house layout is great for entertaining with two separate wings for the bedrooms. The kitchen is a wonderful hangout area inside due to all the windows - it feels like you are still outside. The pool area and yard were fantastic, offering constant sunlight through the day and more than enough area to sun by the pool, play games, etc. The best part of it....you feel like you are doing it all on the island alone because the property is so secluded!. Also the property was very clean when we arrived.
Harriet, the owner, was so easy to deal with and did not bother us at all once on the island. She does live close by if there are any problems, but lets her guest enjoy their time alone. She was very easy on the details of the rental and provided a clear contract for rent. We felt compelled to invite her over because she was so gracious!
The multi-colored beachball looks so happy floating in the turquoise pool...
Dreamy Private Getaway Up Island
This house is the perfect hybrid between elegant country retreat and relaxed beach house. Hidden in the trees of a private community off the beaten path, it is secluded and quiet. Still, we loved hearing the lull of the ocean from the deck and were close enough to area attractions we wanted to see. The house itself is modern, clean and very comfortable. I slept in the master bedroom and that king sized bed was so comfortable. I made relaxed casual meals all weekend long in the kitchen, and we were close enough to towns to experience some real new england lobsters in Menemsha at Larsens and scoop up tasty scones and coffee at 7A. Lots of great natural places to explore nearby. We found some private hiking trails and went out to explore Lucy Vincent and the Aquinna Bluffs. Harriet was a fabulous hostess, with many awesome recommendations and unbelievably warm hospitality. We are already plotting our return next visit. We just found our new home at the beach, and we couldn't be more pleased.
This Mom soaked up beach time like a Mermaid.
And got Mother's Day breakfast in that bed from her teenage son.
My husband and I stayed here Sept 1-8, 2015. It was an incredibly relaxing and lovely stay. The house is secluded on a quite road but easily accessible at the same time. I loved going for a long walsk on the local nature trails nearby. We also are huge beach goers, so to be so close to Lucy Vincent was a plus. The house has a wonderful lay out with incredible light in the kitchen and porch area for meals. Also the living room has a great place for a daytime nap along the bay window. The kitchen was easy to use and quite clean. The master bedroom was spacious with tons of windows which made it wonderful for sleeping. Also it had good storage and its own bathroom. The pool is a lovely option for a quick dip in the morning or at night before bedtime beneath a huge starry sky. Chillmark is a magical place and its great because there are very few people around! I highly recommend this rental!
The starry skies of Chilmark are magical -- aren't they!
