Description

Description

This charming and informal house offers the feel of up-Island with the of Edgartown. Just a 1/2 mile walk, bike or drive to the top of Lower Main Street, it rests on a private, dirt road on the prestigious north side of town.

The house is situated on a 4 1/2 acre, wooded lot, offering total quiet and privacy. It's tucked on the edge of a pine forest but overlooks wetlands with Nantucket Sound in the distance. Views of the water are available from both the master bedroom on the first floor as well as from 2 bedrooms and the huge open deck above. Best of all, it's also within walking distance of its own private beach! We are not part of an association, we own the beach and an acre of land adjacent to it.

The house is campy/informal but also has some nice antiques - and, of course, all the amenities necessary for a successful vacation such as hot/cold outside shower, screened-in porch, high-speed internet with WIFI, gas grill, washer/dryer, and a fully-equipped kitchen.

The first floor master bedroom has a queen bed and a day/twin bed as well as its own bathroom. There is another small bedroom on the first floor near the master with a twin bed, and one of the 2 upstairs bedrooms has a king and one has twins. There is a half bath upstairs. There is also a full bath downstairs off the kitchen and living room.

This is a truly unique property.

Our new favorite spot!

My family goes to Martha's Vineyard every year, and it's one of our favorite places in the world so we don't take looking for a house lightly. This A-Frame house is the quintessential MV home away from home. Everything you need, and nothing you don't. It's got a beautiful sun deck, private beach, 4 bedrooms, and was very clean and inviting. We rarely watched TV but there is great internet and cable as well.

Another highlight of the trip was the owners! Elizabeth and Sandy really made sure we were comfortable at the home and gave us tips to make our trip even better (letting us know where the best tennis courts were, restaurant recommendations, even a lift to the airport after a little bicycle incident).

All in all, this house is the perfect MV retreat. It's tucked away on a private road, in the best little town, and the private beach was a wonderful bonus. Bring bikes and enjoy the outdoors from this great spot.

Wonderful Week!

What a great week we had at the A Frame!!!! My husband and I traveled with our 2 year old son, in-laws, and had our extended family visit throughout the week. My family and I have been coming to the island for many years, and this was our first time in this part of Edgartown. The property has the feel of seclusion like you are staying on Chappy, tucked away in the woods with so much privacy, but yet such a quick walk to Main St. Edgartown.

The private beach is what makes this property. Absolutely gorgeous, perfect for families with children. It was amazing not having to deal with the issue of finding a parking spot and having to shlep all of the gear to the beach. PRIVATE BEACH!!!! The house itself is old, cannot sugar coat that, but it is a beach house and was perfect for our needs for the week. If you love air conditioning, this would not be the house for you as there was only one window unit. There are lovely breezes in the evening and throughout the night that cool the property down, and various fans that help. The owners are lovely and attentive to anything you need throughout your stay. We look forward to another week at the A Frame in the future! show more show less

Perfect Edgartown Family Rental

My wife and our two young children stayed here in September, and it was perfect. To begin with, the house is very comfortable with all the amenities you need, a great yard, beautiful ocean view, and an easy 5 minute walk (1 minute drive) to your own private beach. There's a wonderful screened in porch off the kitchen, which is perfect for meals with kids or a cool drink at the end of the day.

Having the convenience of your own beach and access to Edgartown within easy walking distance is amazing, especially because the location feels so remote, peaceful and serene. One would assume you're at least 20 minutes from anything. We particularly appreciated the timeless nature and charm of this property, rural setting, spacious layout and thoughtful owners. Approaching the A-Frame from the tree lined dirt road of Lenssen Way is almost like driving down a country road in Alabama. As the listing mentions, you get the very best of being up-island with access to everything Edgartown has to offer in addition to your own beach - what else could you want? This was our second visit to the A-Frame, and we hope to return in 2016! show more show less

Great, Relaxing Vacation

This had to be one of the best vacations I have spent on Martha's Vineyard. Lovely A-Frame, with all the amenities you would need to have a beautiful, relaxing vacation. Lovely meals on the screened porch. The surroundings around the A-Frame are beautiful. Your own private beach comes with the rental. I even kayaked for the very first time and loved it. Lovely walks into Edgartown - yes, I said you can walk to Edgartown, where we shopped and had lovely dinners, or just drinks, in their wonderful restaurants!!

The owners are a delight and so very informative. We loved it so much we leased it again for our 2016 vacation. Two weeks is never enough, but we have to come back to reality some time:( We are definitely looking forward to next year's vacation. Thank you, Beta and Sandy.

Perfect Getaway

My wife and I and our 2 kids (10 and 12), and our dog stayed at the A-Frame for a week this past summer. The location is unbelievable. Less then a 1/2 mile from a private beach and less than a mile from Edgartown. The house itself, while not updated, has everything you need for a great vacation (including a great view of the ocean from the deck). In addition, Elizabeth is a very gracious and helpful host.

Tucked away from the traffic and crowds

Fantastic vacation week for our family of four with teenagers! Enjoy low key living without pretense in a home with plenty of room to relax and unwind. We loved the private beach and secluded spot, tucked away from the traffic and crowds. Owners are welcoming. We will look to come back when schedule permits.

Stress-free rental with excellent location!

This property was perfect for our family! We had three adults and two children. Our favorite spot was on the roof deck — the view is beautiful. We loved walking through the preserve, but we also rented bikes, which made getting to the private beach and Edgartown even easier. The house has loads of space, so everyone had their own spot if needed, but we could also be together if we wanted. We were a little worried about the stairs to the second floor being so steep, but there is a gate at the top, so we felt very comfortable having our toddler up there. The house has everything you need for a simple, stress-free vacation (we ate out a lot and weren’t making gourmet meals when home!). It is also very, very clean, beautifully landscaped, and the homeowner is fantastic to work with. We look forward to returning! show more show less

Absolutely a dream

I have been coming to Martha's Vineyard since my three children were toddlers. Eleven years later we discovered this beautiful home! Teenagers now, the children had the freedom of their own beach and biking to Edgartown within minutes. This hidden gem is tucked away amid such peaceful surroundings - woods, flowers, trees and the ocean. The roof deck offers a peaceful getaway that is a must to experience! The homeowners are just as special. Lovely, welcoming and want you to enjoy their special place. The entire experience was a vacation we will never forget and cannot wait to return! show more show less

Fantastic place

If you want a mix of woods and beach that's also close to town, the A-Frame is fantastic. The whole week was amazing. Friendly and helpful owners - laid back house - it's great.

Best vacation on Martha's Vineyard!!!

My husband, daughter, black lab and I all had one of the best vacations ever at this property on Martha's Vineyard!! We lived on Martha's Vineyard a couple of years ago and it was exactly what we needed to restore and rejuvenate before heading back to the mainland.

This is an amazing rental. It is within walking distance to Edgartown with the feel of being up island with the remote and woodsy setting. It literally was like a dream each day waking up to full sun and being able to walk to our very own private beach. I have never had my own private beach. It was truly like living a fantasy! We often grilled out in the evening and went into town a few nights to hit our old stomping grounds like the Atlantic for a nostalgic glass of Prosecco, the Wharf for some dancing, and The Newes for a burger. We spent one rainy morning at Morning Glory Farm. We biked from the property to South Beach to enjoy the sunset one evening and picked up some lobster at Edgartown Seafood on the way home.

We had such an amazing time that we changed our ferry reservation to come back later! I HIGHLY recommend this wonderful property. It was also very safe and comfortable for our 21 month old. Our dog was the happiest I have seen him in quite some time:-) Thank you so much for offering up your beautiful home and allowing us to share in the true experience of what is the ultimate Martha's Vineyard vacation!

I grew up summering on the Vineyard on land that was originally owned by my grandparents dating back to the 1920's and have managed the rentals for this family home since the mid-1980’s. I love connecting with our guests and sharing this special spot with them - and witnessing their enjoyment of it, too.


What is special about this property?
The A-Frame is not an ordinary Vineyard vacation rental. It's not a fancy contemporary rental home nor a charming historic Captains home. It's a bit funky and unusual, especially for Edgartown, but it's also incredibly comfortable and fun, with multiple options for relaxing and enjoying privacy inside or out. Although it's kind of ''campy'' and informal, we try very hard to make sure that it is outfitted with everything we can think of to make your vacation enjoyable, including picnic containers, beach chairs and umbrellas, inside and outside games, paper products, etc.

What is special about your town?
There's nothing like being able to enjoy the privacy of a wooded setting overlooking wetlands and the water while still being able to walk or bike into downtown Edgartown so easily! As you're probably aware, parking in the narrow streets of the Village can be very challenging, so it's so convenient to be able to leave the car in the driveway. An added bonus is being able to wend your way through Sheriff's Meadow Nature Reserve on the way to and from town! Virtually the entire 1/2 mile trip to Pease's Point Way/Lower Main Street is on a very quiet road with minimal and very slow car traffic, so it's incredibly safe for kids.
