Great Spot. Immaculate Home. Gracious Hosts

We are very fond of the Katama area and were thrilled to find this property. Located on a secluded side street, it offers easy access to South Beach and Edgartown center. The home itself is well maintained. My wife and I are particularly fond of the open concept, South facing, living room area, which boasts lots of natural light. The owners could not be more gracious. We hope to find it available again next year!

Great Family Vacation!

We had a great stay. We had stayed at this house 14 years ago and were so happy to find the house to have even more amenities than when we stayed before. Everything you could need for a vacation away from home. Truly a wonderful vacation home.

Amazing Trip

We had a great time at this home; it was a fantastic location right near South Beach as well as biking distance to Edgartown. (It's why we chose it, and it lived up to its promises.)

Having the airfield nearby was an added bonus, not an annoyance. The planes take off rarely and only make you feel like you're at the beach, not to mention a great place to eat at the Right Fork Diner.

The house is in great shape; but the best part is that the owner pays attention to the details. Most items you need are already there, i.e., inens, chairs, towels, dish detergent. She even greets you with a bottle of wine and some soap.

I would highly recommend this rental because of the spacious kitchen, deck, amenities and location. Not to mention an attentive landlord.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and would be very happy to host you in the future. We agree - being within walking distance of South Beach is a wonderful "feature" of our home, and our proximity to the airfield is a bonus - eating a delicious breakfast or lunch at the Right Fork Diner amidst the vintage aircraft, overlooking the grass air field is a treat.

We love this house

This was our 3rd time staying at this house and it has everything we are looking for - plenty of space for 2 families, close to the beach and town, a large deck for relaxing on and a great yard for playing on. We have made many wonderful memories staying in this home and look forward to our vacation there every year.

Katama Delight

Beautiful well kept home with every amenity that we could think of. This is our 13th year of renting homes on the cape and this home by far was the one that stands out. Owner was friendly and accommodating. Great location and easy access to South Beach, yet in a fairly secluded neighborhood.

Katama Delight is the all year round retreat of a family of five residing in Boston. We love Martha's Vineyard and are happy to share our home with you.

Our home is a place to relax, unwind, and gain refuge from the routines of daily life. Come relax in the sun and ocean breezes with a good book, or gather family and friends for conversation. Walk the beach and nature trails, cycle along the island's many miles of bike paths, and enjoy golf, tennis, fishing, swimming, and water sports.

I was first introduced to Martha's Vineyard when visiting with high school friends. I returned to the island year after year, staying in Katama, where I had first discovered the magic of the island. Later, when my young family began to plan summer vacations, we found the island offered everything we desired. We adore Katama and the island. I won't reveal my age by writing how many years I have treasured my visits; but I have many years of family memories of our Katama holidays. Our Katama home is a truly special place.

We open our home and invite you to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of this magical island.

We have over twenty-five years of experience providing memorable family vacations to our guests.

Stay ''with us'' and enjoy the Vineyard experience.

What is special about your town?
Katama is a residential area outside of the quaint and historic whaling village of Edgartown. Katama is on the south shore of the island. Our home is located on a quiet lane. It's private - a wonderful retreat.

Our home is situated a pleasant walking distance across the Katama Plains - a rare protected grass habitat - to spectacular South Beach; a beautiful stretch of soft sand, gorgeous dunes, and frothy waves. South Beach is fantastic for body surfing.

There are biking paths throughout the island. Our home is adjacent to the bike path along Herring Creek Road, which extends from Edgartown to South Beach.

There are nature and conservation lands with miles of paths throughout the island. Enjoy walks through forested acres, along the ocean shore, through grasslands, marshland, and farmland. The natural beauty of the island is uplifting and soothing. It's the best of places for a magical family visit!
