About Betsy Harrington View our Photoshow:

I'm so blessed to live on this fantastic island year round. My husband Don and I have been married since 1988. We create Art. I'm a a painter of Oil and Pastel and he is a fine furniture builder. You'll see our work in galleries around the island, and of course in our home.

Like every 3rd person on the island I'm a real estate broker, lol. We also caretake properties, and I teach computer skills.

We are fun easy going people who love life, people and joy. We all can all chose to be happy.

Okay that's all you get!

Why Betsy Harrington View our Photoshow: chose Edgartown

Martha's Vineyard is paradise! Its' light, terrain, beaches, amazing. Just over a mile to one of the Vineyards finest beaches. We are across from a FREE state park for biking and hiking. Miles upon miles of bike paths to enjoy. Highly desirable central location, not in the middle of town. We are 3-4 miles outside of town. We have equal access to up or down island beaches. Our driveway is around .25 of a mile, so it's safe (traffic) for dogs and kids to play and just so serene. Literally across the street from the driveway is the bike path. Even in high season, we're not gridlocked in traffic, we never need to worry about where to put a few cars. And I can have beautiful gardens to enjoy-we just love the place.

What makes this house unique

Great large backyard set back from the road. Dogs can roam safely. Kids can play. Just a great well appointed family home. Central to everything without having people on top of you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I've had the pleasure of renting my home for several years.

It has always been a good experience because our home is a

relaxing inviting space and people feel it upon entering.

They are never disappointed.

I have posted a few of the comments from the guest book.

But as one renters, who keeps returning tells me "your house

is SO much better than a web site could present"

I would be delighted to answer any questions you have. Thank

you for your consideration.

the Wells

  • 5 of 5

Great house, really close to the airport and 10 min from Edgartown. The house is roomy, clean and far more well stocked with kitchen utensils, equip than anywhere else we've stayed. Great hot tub right of the back. This house is really private.

Great relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental home with tons of privacy for the whole family. Plenty of room for outdoor activities for the whole family including some great, nailbiting soccer golf. The kitchen & outdoor grill were fantastic to cook all of our meals. We had a wonderful time at this home and would definitely rent there again.

Great Rental Second Year in a Row

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful rental that is not missing a single thing. The layout of the house is wonderful for small families with teenagers, it is more than pet friendly, and the kitchen has every amenity plus more! The hot tub is such a wonder added value, that on some days we just stayed home and enjoyed the tub. The Proximitiy to Long Point Beach is about 10 minutes, the Airport is three minutes (near hear a thing from the planes) and Edgartown center 9 minutes. Don and Betsy are incredible friendly and responsive. It's the first rental property that I have stayed in in 20 years, that there was not one problem or issue. Everything was perfect. I hate to recommend it because I want to keep it a secret!

Our favorite place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We started visiting Martha's Vineyard almost 20 years ago and have continued to visit every couple of years. Fore the first 5 or 6 visits we rented a different house each time, exploring different parts of the island. We liked most of them, but were always looking for something else. Once we found this house we were hooked and have not considered another house since.

The location is great - between the Morning Glory Farm and the Long Point Wildlife Refuge you have everything you need for a perfect week nearby.

The house is clean and has everything you need plus plenty of extra space and a wide open yard.

The owners live in another house on the other side of the yard, so if you were to need anything they are right there and very helpful.

We stayed with our grown kids and 2 golden retrievers. It was great because the dogs could roam freely and we did not have to worry! The house was roomy and quaint and exceeded expectations along with a well equipped kitchen. The outdoor shower was a big hit for everyone. We really liked the location as it is away from the crowds, but close to just about anywhere on the island. We also enjoyed having the bike path so close. The owners have created a nice sanctuary and are great hosts. We really approeciated their hospitality which helped make our stay memorable. We highly recommend this rental.
