About the property

4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, perfect family house

This bright, sunny, gambrel Cape Cod home is situated on a private acre on a quiet country lane. You are a 5-minute walk from Lambert's Cove Beach, considered one of the most pristine and beautiful beaches on Martha's Vineyard, yet only 10 minutes from towns, restaurants, and shopping. Relax and dine on the two large decks in quiet privacy, surrounded by beech trees.

The interior is freshly painted and filled with comfortable, high-quality furniture. Gallery art and designer decor are several cuts above the average vacation rental. Downstairs is a front-to-back fireplaced living room, large kitchen, dining area with room for 8-10, and full bath. Upstairs are 4 cozy bedrooms and a second full bath. There are hardwood floors and oversized windows throughout the house, and ceiling fans in the bedrooms (sorry, no AC). The walk-out basement has laundry facilities and a ping-pong table, and a new, spacious outdoor shower is perfect for cleaning off after the beach.

The kitchen is well equipped with a waffle maker, electric griddle, blender, coffee grinder and Cuisinart coffee brewer. In addition, there is a lobster pot, bowls and platters, salad spinner, and a full set of pots and pans - all the comforts of home.

The house is uniquely situated as it is walking distance to three swimming areas. It's a 5-minute walk to the Lambert's Cove Beach parking lot, a residents-only private beach with miles of untouched sand dunes. Because it is open to West Tisbury residents and tenants only, it is never crowded. Sunsets on this beach are the best on the island. Your rental includes family beach passes.

Enjoy swimming in crystal clear glacial ponds? Manaquayak Preserve and Seth's Pond are also less than 10 minutes' walk from the house. Manaquayak Preserve is one of the newest Martha's Vineyard Land Bank properties. This 12-acre property contains a pristine, glacier-formed kettle pond originally called Ice House Pond. It has only 4 parking spaces to limit its use. Seth's Pond has a sandy beach and is popular with young children.

This is a great set-up for families with young kids. In the basement you'll find bikes, a portacrib, high chair, stroller, and kids' toys and books, saving you the hassle of bringing these items on your travels.

Why Elizabeth Billowitz chose Martha's Vineyard

What makes this house unique

The house is ideal for one family or two, or a group of adults. The location can't be beat -- close to everything, but quiet and secluded. Laying on the hammock, listening to the birds and the distant ferry horn, is something we dream about all year long.

Comfortable Lambert's Cove Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed with her sister and husband...and our boys both under the age of 2. We had no problems with the property as it was comfortable, spacious and met all of our needs. Lisa was very accommodating and couldn't have been more pleasant to deal with. The owners had all of the necessary items for the kids to make packing up and getting on island a breeze. I hope we can find time to stay here again in the near future because it worked out so well for our needs.

Cosy Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We went to Martha's Vineyard for three days (June 3-6, 2015) and spent them in West Tisbury. We were very satisfied with this house. Very comfortable and equipped with everything you could need. The beach, exclusive to the West Tisbury residents or tenants, is at a walking distance and is the best on the Island. The new owner Lisa was very full of attentions toward us and diligent to response to our requests. The house is at a 15-minute drive from Vineyard Haven where you cross to Woods Hole on the Main land. We highly recommend this quiet house and would come back again.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We visited Martha's Vineyard over Memorial Day Weekend and this home was the perfect fit for the 9 of us! (7 adults & 2 kids) The home was very clean and well equipped. Lisa is the new owner of this home and she was very accommodating and met all of our needs! The beach is an easy walk with breath taking views and soft sand! We did not have a car for the weekend and the house is a little remote, but the bike trails made our travels around the island fun & adventuerous! Would definately stay again during another visit!

The house is a 5-minute walk along a country road to the Lambert's Cove Beach entrance, a residents-only private beach with warm water and miles of untouched sand dunes. You can also drop off beach chairs and coolers at the parking lot, and guest can come and go as they wish. This beach has fine sand and silver dollar shells. Because it is open to West Tisbury residents and tenants only, it is never crowded. Sunsets on this beach are the best on the island.

For a change of pace, Seth's Pond (the Island's largest fresh water swimming pond) is also a 5-minute walk. Also within walking distance is Manaquayak Preserve, a kettle pond. Created by glaciers, this pristine pond is one of the Land Bank's newest acquisitions. Each pond has only four parking spaces, so is predominantly used by local residents.

A grocery store, shops and restaurants are only a few minutes' drive. The house is centrally located on the Vineyard such that you have easy access to all the towns.
