About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our gorgeous, sun swept 3000sq ft open floor plan contemporary water view home is perched on a hill overlooking Vineyard Sound and the Elizabeth Islands. The house is filled with light in every room and ocean breezes flow through the floor to ceiling windows. It is a tasteful showcase of contemporary furnishings mixed with antiques and collectables. The deck and outdoor dining areas have water views and world class sunsets.

The house is the ultimate private get away without neighbors in site and surrounded by mature gardens and stone walls. A hammock slung between two shady trees is a great spot for your favorite summer reading.

The private beach, a 5 minute walk down the wooded paths, is open to our tenants and other residents of this exclusive association area. The waters are calm. Children can snorkle and collect drift wood. Our kayaks are there for your use. It is rare to see more than 4 or 5 people on the beach at one time! Imagine a summer without the stress of piling into the car to drive to the beach and waiting in long lines to park followed by a hike to the water! Lambert's Cove Beach, long known as the island's loveliest white sand beach, is a short bike ride or walk (just under a mile) and is open only to tenants and owners from West Tisbury. We provide bikes and helmets.

There are 4 bedrooms, including 2 Masters with en suite bathrooms. The other 2 bedrooms share a bathroom. In addition, a Den/TV room has a pull-out sofa and its own private bathroom. The house allows for privacy and works extremely well for multi family/multi generational get-togethers.

All linens (high thread count, towels and utensils are provided as well as bikes, kayaks and beach chairs. This fantastic home is the perfect setting for a memorable family get-away!

About The Owner

We are both Bostonians and grew up summering with our families on Marthas Vineyard. We live in California now and can't use the house as often as we would like, so we decided to put it in the rental market during the weeks we can not be there. It has been furnished and cared for as a family home not a rental.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Don't rent this house (please!)

  • 5 of 5

Truth be told, I was conflicted about writing a review for this house...torn between wanting to sing the property's praises and (selfishly) not wanting the word to spread so much that it would make it more difficult to rent in the future! The best way to describe the house is: it's a home...permanent, lived in, cared for, comfortable. Rather than feeling like a beach rental, it feels as though you are staying at a friend's house who just happens to be away while you're there. It's nicely decorated and well stocked as if the owners spend much of their time there (thankfully for us, they don't) and will be back any minute. From the breezy open plan living room / dining / kitchen, to the sunny deck overlooking Vineyard Sound, to the cozy family room (perfect for binge watching Netfilx on a rainy day), it's a great house in which to spend your time on the Vineyard when you're not out experiencing all that the island has to offer. The four bedrooms on the lower level (including two master bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms) are comfortable and quiet with direct access to the yard and outdoor shower. Like the house, the grounds are lovely and well tended and offer a nice spot to sit and enjoy the sunset. The location in the Lower Makonikey neighborhood of West Tisbury is easily accessible to Vineyard Haven but as you drive down the gravel road to the house, you feel miles away...the best of "up island" living close to town. The quiet north shore beach is an easy 5 minute walk from the house and Lambert's Cove beach (perfect for kids) is minutes away down the road by car. So if you must rent this house, please just don't stay too long and make it harder for us!

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to this great place for three years - we spent a lot of years looking for the perfect place for us with our three young children, and this is it. The house has everything we love - great deck, modern ammenities, beach close by, washer/dryer and a great view. The yard is expansive and really feels like you are away from all the disctractions of everyday life. We can't wait to go back.

We love this house

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house to rent. We are going back for our third summer this year. The house is immaculate and fully stocked. The furnishings are perfect for adults and kids. And the grounds are gorgeous. We find ourselves outside in the yard a lot as it is so peaceful and quiet. The house is secluded but not isolated. You feel private but not alone. The beach is walkable, even for little ones and we spend most of our time swimming in the gentle waters. The house is close enough to stores and cafés, so it is an easy place to stay. There is an on-Island manager so if you need assistance, it is local. In sum, our family just loves the house and we hope to be here many more years. We have been coming to the Vineyard for 35 summers and this house is our favorite.
