  • Location, Capacity & Value

    "We are pretty familiar with MV. 11 of us ages 7 To 76. We are kind of "professional renters" in coastal MA and Lakes of NH spanning the last 12 years. Other reviews on this site capture the gist of this place. I will fill in some specifics that our troop found. Pros & Cons. PROS: owner was very responsive to communications. Holds 15 people. Excellent value to occupancy ratio c/t other rentals in this area. Good location just off Circuit. Off street parking for 3 SUVs. Easy on street parking immediately in front of house (Can't stress this feature enough in OB). Dining room seating capacity and arrangement. Twice weekly trash pick-up (many good trash barrels and recycling barrels). Park across street (under construction). Great outdoor showers (lichen adds character). Excellent TVs (3). AC (central other than window box in room with the 3 twin beds). 2 good full size fridge/freezers. Good WIFI. Bedding and house towels provided. Combo Doorknob lockbox for keys. It is unreasonable to compare the fit, finish and features of a typical $11,000/ week rental to this home at about half the rate. That being said there is some info that other renters may find helpful. CONS: Overall there is a "Sarah Winchester Mystery House" feel to the place. This could pose problems to small children and mobility impared adults. Build quality and design are not strong features of this house. Fit and finish are the same. Stairs are narrow and steep. Toilets may require "side saddle" technique to use. Many doors do not close properly and privacy locks are not available. No master bedroom (no en suite). Upstairs bath floor needs replacement. Insufficient rings and hooks for towels etc throughout the home. As stated on website, no beach chairs nor beach towels are provided. We feel they would be welcome additions for renters in the future. Lack of well defined sleeping/bed arrangements on website. No waste baskets in bedrooms. Poor quality of some major appliances (dish washer, washer/dryer). Tennis courts in poor shape and no nets are up at this time. Minor pest problem with centipede(s). We resolved this issue. Some of these issues are readily fixable and others are inherent to the property and still others are outside of control of property owner(tennis and park). When completed the park will in all likelihood be quite nice. Overall and all things considered for price, location and GUEST CAPACITY, this is a good rental option IMHO."

  • A Little Piece of Heaven!

    "My husband and I rented this property, along with a similar property owned by the same family, for our friends coming from out of town for our wedding at the Allen Farm. The owner was incredibly accommodating with travel arrangements and we walked in to fresh cut flowers from the garden and a box of Chilmark Chocolates to set the tone for a wonderful week in a secluded paradise. Friends spent evenings snuggling by the fire, we drank wine and told stories on the beautiful patio outside the master bedroom, and walked around the gorgeous grounds overlooking Squibnocket Pond. This is a house where you seem to gasp each time you look out the window. Tons of charm, all the comforts you could want, and a very responsive owner. Highly recommend this property to those who want a true up island experience."

  • Paradise!

    "Paul and Curt were wonderful hosts!! Paul contacted me early on and emailed me the ferry info, great locations to visit, etc. The home was immaculate and very spacious for my family. Having the golf cart and bikes were a plus especially when we wanted to go to town or the beaches. We were bummed we didn't have time to use their kayaks. Thank you Paul and Curt for making our stay memorable!!"

    "My family of six had a wonderful week on the Vineyard. The home was everything we expected and more-- beautifully designed, tastefully furnished, fully equipped. If anything, the online photos don't do it complete justice. Nothing was left wanting: the woodsy setting, the airy, open, three tier floor plan, each floor with it's own spacious deck-- we even enjoyed their library of books. And the location was in pleasant walking distance to lovely Lambert's Cove beach and, in fact, convenient to the whole island. BTW, I wasn't paid to write this review-- the place earned it."
