  • Great location!

    "This was a great place for my wife and I to stay for a week. Rita was fantastic in communicating with us as we made the reservation, prepared for, and arrived for our visit. The cottage's location is fantastic - it's less than a mile from downtown Edgartown (walkable), and about 1.5 miles from South Beach, right on the bike/walking path. Despite being on a semi-thoroughfare, the light Martha's Vineyard traffic meant it was still very quiet, and being set back from the road, it was also quite private. The cottage is small and has the basics.... While it has the essentials (kitchen with stove, microwave, coffeemaker, fridge, etc.....), most of the furnishings in the cottage are dated and could use updating. Everything worked, but it felt like a bit of a time machine in using the microwave and other items. Along that theme, while there is a television in the living room, it is small (I didn't measure it, but it is probably in the 22" - 26" screen size range), and doesn't have HD capability (or receive many basic cable networks, such as ESPN). We happened to visit during the Olympics and are sports buffs, so we were able to get by with basic channels, but people who are looking for more or better options might be disappointed. Similarly, most of the doors in the cottage (aside from the front door) either squeak or are ill-fitting at this point, so it's hard to get a good seal on any of them. The yard was similar to the interior - while the grass wasn't long, the bushes and trees were overgrown, particularly near the entrance to the property. The top of our Jeep Wrangler touched low-hanging branches every time we entered and exited the driveway, and it hindered visibility as we exited the driveway. One thing that works, fantastically well, is the air conditioning. We were fortunate, as it was pretty hot during the week we visited. The control is simple and the system is quiet. The rental rate was very fair, considering the fantastic location. We had friends staying about 3/4 of a mile away who were in a much newer, more modern accommodation, but their rental rate was also significantly higher (almost 2x). Despite what might seem like complaints about the accommodations, we were quite pleased with the overall value, and would consider staying here again if we come back to Martha's Vineyard."

  • Beautiful, tranquil spot

    "I spent 2+ weeks at this fabulous house in the fall. What a wonderful, relaxing experience. The view over Katama Bay is spectacular and changes every day an throughout the day. The the fabulous deck and comfortable deck furniture is the perfect place to watch the colors change, read a book, watch the birds over the marsh, or take a nap. The location is great for taking long walks on the beach or walking on the Trustee land or the lanes of Chappy. The property is very private and very quiet -- especially in the off season! The house is beautifully appointed, very comfortable (great mattress in Master bedroom!) and has anything you need for a short or extended stay. The owners were the best! They were great with communicating details and making arrangements. I would come back here in a heartbeat!"

  • Amazing Resort Style Property

    "We have been to Martha's Vinyard with a large group several times over the last 8 years and we finally found the retreat we were looking for. This place truly is beautiful. From the ride down the long gravel road, which is a little dusty, you arrive to a lush green lawn with fruit trees and a circular driveway. Most likely you will see the resident turkeys frolicking around when you pull up. The outside is perfect with several seating enclaves and plenty of flat lawn for activities. We set up various yard games (volleyball, whiffle ball, Kan Jam, Corn Hole, Bocce Ball, etc...) and they stayed in place all week. The property does have a basketball court but the backboard and rim were removed. Not a big deal but I am sure we would have utilized it had it been up. The pool is also pristine and was used all week. It was a great feature especially with a large group of children (8 all together from the ages of 9-13). It made the days effortless as we just eased in to every day with the kids hanging around the pool or enjoying the grounds without nagging to get somewhere. The house is a close drive (12-15 minutes) to South Beach, Edgartown, Oak Bluffs. So relatively convenient to most areas. The kitchen really made it hard to eat out, but we did manage to get out a few nights. The pictures do not do this kitchen justice, it is enormous and absolutely awesome. For the most part it had everything we needed for cooking. It could use a little more organizing but we managed. Bedrooms were all well proportioned and with a total of 16 people it was not cramped at all. We spent nights around the outdoor fire pit as well as the many other sitting areas inside just reflecting what a great time we were having. The property is very private but there is a small cottage at the entrance the looks like it gets rented out. It is far enough that it doesn't really interfere with anything but it is does take away from some of the exclusivity that the property exhibits. The owner, Diedre was very responsive on the small items/issues we did have. Which really are irrelevant. So the next time we are in The Vinyard we no longer have to search for our oasis. Really was a great place and a superb time. 5 Stars!!"

  • Looking forward to next year!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed this Katama home. The open concept kitchen / great room was great for our family. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed for the week. The large deck with hot tub was a great asset we enjoyed it using it in the evening. Bedroom setup was great for multiple couples. The location is perfect for visiting South Beach and quite an easy drive to Long Point. The owners were very responsive and great with all the details for renting. Will definitely rent again."
