About Jon Schrade
We are from Massachusetts; we spent summers on the island with our children and finally built our dream home. We retired to the Island and enjoyed all that there is to do in this wonderful place particularly water sports, golf, and great friends and restaurants. I am no longer able to stay in my beloved home but want to share some of the wonderful times with all of you.
Jon Schrade purchased this House in 1979
Why Jon Schrade chose Oak Bluffs
This cottage provides an ideal location for visitors to Martha's Vineyard. Waterview farms is a quiet, well-maintained area that provides an excellent change of pace and get away from the stressors of everyday life. Yet with all of the peace, the house is close to Oak Bluffs and the shopping, unique restaurants and entertainment of the town. It is next door to an exceptional golf course which provides for a great game and magnificent views, and the Felix Neck sanctuary where one can experience various bird and reptile populations and a great nature walk. We are within walking distance of a private beach and a few minutes from the public and much larger state beach. Good view of Sengekontacket Pond and Nantucket Sound. It is easily accessible to the other towns on the Island , Edgartown and Vineyard Haven.

Beautiful and comfortable home with a spectacular view!
We stayed in this beautiful home to celebrate Christmas with our family. This house accommodated 5 adults and 3 young children comfortably- with visits from grandparents thrown in! The early morning sunrise is spectacular over the lake. The house contained everything we needed to cook our meals and provided spaces for alone time and shared entertainment. The owner was only a phone call away and answered questions promptly! We felt welcome and well cared for. Thanks for providing our home away from home for a wonderful holiday week!
. Amazing Summer Vacation on MV!!
My family and I had an amazing vacation on the Vineyard and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The property was wonderful, well maintained and in close proximity to beaches, shops and golf course. We will definitely recommend this property to our friends, family and anyone looking to have a nice vacation on Martha's Vineyard. We are already planning on a return here in 2018.
Very nice location.
This home away was very nice. The manager was available just a phone call away. We had a very lovely time. It had everything we needed! The outdoor shower was used a lot. And the view was spectacular. Overall it was very nice.
Very relaxing and a great location.
The house was a good fit for our family. There was always a breeze on the deck regardless of the weather downtown. Enjoyed the variety of birds.
Beautiful home near a well-maintained, oceanview golf course
The house is nestled at the back of a quiet neightborhood, near Farm Neck golf course and overlooking the pond and the ocean. It's pretty to see the sunset from the deck. We played golf and it's very convenient to just have a super-short drive from the house to the golf course. The house has all the amenities you need for a weekend get-away, a nice kitchen, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Great place to stay when in the island.
Perfect home for a getwaway on Martha's Vineyard!
This home was perfect for our group (4 gals, early 40's, girl's weekend) - large, spacious, beautifully decorated, clean and had all you could possibly need for your home away from home. Jon and Leslie were so accommodating, prior to our arrival and at the very start of our visit - making sure we were ok and had everything we needed. The view from every window in the house is breathtaking. Nicely sized deck with table, umbrella and chairs - perfect for morning coffee and happy hour cocktails! There are always risks when booking a vacation house based on photos from a website, but this is the real deal - you will not be disappointed! Thank you again, Jon and Leslie, for allowing us the use of your beautiful home. Sincerely, Jen, Karen, Kate and Evelyn
