  • Charming House and Great Location

    "This is our fourth year vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard. Our tradition has been to spend the last week together before the start of school. We stayed at this house last year and enjoyed it so much that we came back again this year. Both times we contact and book directly with the owner and the process is very easy. The house is very large for our family of two adults, 1 teenager and 1 child but we just love the house and location! My husband and I love sitting on the porch having our morning tea/coffee, doing some work on the laptop or just relaxing before the start of the day. The inside of the house and all the bedrooms are decorated in a way that you feel comfortable but still experience glimpses of the gingerbread cottage and the Vineyard past. The kitchen is well stock with everything I needed to cook and the outdoor grill is easy to use. There are toys, board games, magazines, books, Cable TV and internet for us when we had to stay in. The house is located at such a great spot that we walked or rode our bikes everywhere: to the beach, park, arcade, shops, campground, market and restaurants. Last year we left our car at the steamship parking lot and took the ferry over. This year we came with our car. Since the house has parking and is so close to the ferry, both experiences are good."

  • Perfect!

    "This is the first time I have rented a house on the Vineyard, and I am hooked! The Leo cottage is in the perfect spot, not right in downtown, but close enough to to walk there in five minutes. Also about a ten minute walk to the beach. House is so comfortable and well decorated. Not over the top beachy, nice mix of antiques also. Plenty of room. And the porch. Cannot say enough about that porch!! Thanks so much for a relaxing and memorable week."

  • Perfect family rental w/everything you need & more

    "My family stayed at Marcy's home during the first week of August 2016 and it was just wonderful! The house and the grounds are just setup so well for family and friends. We had four consistent residents the entire week: Me, my wife, our 11-month old son and our dog, then we had different groups of friends with their kids join us throughout the week. It's tough to find a property that can comfortably work for such an eclectic mix of people and personalities cycling in and out throughout a week, but I couldn't be more happy to report that Balla Machree exceeded all expectations. Some of the high notes from our stay: > All bedrooms on the ground floor, with access to the upper living area via a central stairway. Sound did not travel very well between the floors, so what was going on upstairs didn't bother anyone trying to sneak in a nap or hit the hay early downstairs. The cooking and living areas also look out onto the tree tops, which is a view much better enjoyed while hanging out than snoozing. > Very comfortable master bedroom and en-suite master bath. This gives the property a very nice luxury touch. > No A/C needed. We were worried about this on account of the dog and baby, but even on the the hottest days it was not an issue. Sleeping temperature each night dropped to a very comfortable temp. > Awesome outdoor shower! It's cavernous and super helpful for preventing the beach from coming indoors with you. > Equally awesome fire pit with lounge seating for 8. Really fun way end a day on the vineyard by gathering around an open fire. > Hiking trail directly connected to the backyard. Our dog had a blast galloping through the woods. Bring some bug spray, but enjoy a morning walk or run through the woods. There are a bunch of trails that connect and I may have gotten myself lost a couple times after hiking all the way down to the lagoon. > Two grills! One down by the fire pit and another up on the deck. Super convenient."

  • Wonderful

    "We came all the way from the UK and the house, the setting and the delightful owners made our stay perfect. The house is exceptionally well equipped, comfortable and has probably the best sunset view on the island! Thank you for your hospitality Pia, it broke my heart to leave!"
