About Betty Jean Kennedy

My husband Bill and I bought the property on the Island as out eventual retirement home. I have been a school librarian and Bill is an international business consultant. We have four grown children and two wonderful grandsons. We hope to have our island home house many family get togethers in the future.

Betty Jean Kennedy purchased this House in 2000

Why Betty Jean Kennedy chose Edgartown

My sister was very influential in our decision to buy our Martha's Vineyard property. As a real estate agent on the island she found a perfect spot and we both bought our three acres each and began to fulfill our dreams. Her creativity helped design the buildings and overall plan. After nine years we have both reached our goals and now have our guest house, main house and studio properties. It is here that we will retire and enjoy our island getaway

What makes this House unique

The peaceful relaxing atmosphere of the meadow away from the crowded vacation towns on the island prove a perfect retreat for a quiet time after a busy day on the island. Enjoy the sunsets or the wonderful starlit sky from the private hottub. Even on a rainy day this home is cozy and friendly for all who stay here.

A quiet retreat away from the crowds, but close to towns. Great notebook of tips, maps and recommendations. Sun porch a gathering spot for coffee in the morning or afternoon snacks.

                                                                      Lovely retreat

Beautifully decorated with high ceilings and lots of windows. Two comfortable bedrooms, great for two couples. Very quiet and peaceful. Convenient to bike path. Equidistant to all the towns. A great getaway.

                                                                      H & MCalifornia

                                                                      This is our second time in the guest house and we so appreciate the exquisite property. The owners are great, and live there year round. Their love of and attention to the beautiful grounds are evident: it's an absolutely lovely site in the middle of wild flowers and trees, and the property and delightful pool (a true refuge during the humid summers) are all beautifully maintained. Peaceful views from every window. We recommend renting the entire "compound" for the most privacy, but really it's so nicely laid out that everyone has privacy, quiet and their own sense of solitude or community when they want it. It's also both totally secluded (it's a mile off the main road on a rough dirt road--which only actually enhances the shangri-la like effect when you turn down the drive and see this vision) and yet has very easy access to Edgartown, the airport, all the other townships.

                                                                      A memorable family vacation...

                                                                      We had a fabulous time on the vineyard mainly because of this beautiful vacation home! It is perfectly tucked away in a serene setting yet close to everything. This home is filled with lots of love and feels so welcoming as soon as you drive up! Karen and Paul are just lovely and do everything to make you feel at home. The place is filled with lots of natural light and the grounds are just breathtaking! The kitchen is so pleasant & has a really cozy breakfast nook. Each corner of this house has a unique touch & the photographs don't do it justice. We brought our 6 month old daughter here and couldn't asked for a more perfect vacation home...Thanks for making our stay so pleasant. We truly hope to make this our once a year family tradition!

Being greeted with a bouquet of cornflower blue Hydrangeas and a lovely bottle of wine was such a welcoming gesture and made us look forward to the days ahead.We can't express enough how enjoyable our stay was. We experienced all that the island offered,knowing we would return to such a lovely cottage for a star gazing evening.We look forward to returning. We highly recommend this paradise on Martha's Vineyard.

                                                                      After a great week at the same property in September 2011, we came back to find it just as delightful the second time. The house is very clean and bright. It's very well laid out for two couples, with the two bedrooms at opposite ends of the house. The grounds are very well maintained. The saline, solar-heated pool is fantastic, staying around 80 degrees even with the cool September nights. This time we brought our bikes and really enjoyed the many bike trails on the island.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      We really appreciate the time our guests spend writing the reviews. It is important to us that VRBO browsers realize that we consider keeping our property in excellent condition is one of our constant goals. It is a great feeling to have people walk in and comment on how new and fresh everything is and that so many choose to return another year.
