Description

Description

This secluded hideaway is tucked into a peaceful neighborhood, just a mile from the beach, downtown shops and ferry. SweetHaven is a charming 1400-square-foot, Cape-style home with plenty of natural light and beautiful wood floors throughout. A remodeling project, undertaken this past winter, is complete and features a new wrap-around, screened porch with skylights and ceiling fan; new kitchen, ceiling fans in the master and twin bedrooms, and skylight in the single bedroom.

The spacious, front-to-back master bedroom (newly redecorated) has a large walk-in closet, where you can keep all of your gear put away and out of sight. You'll find extra sleeping space for a small child in the convertible sofa, while the other two bedrooms provide welcoming accommodations for the rest of your family or guests. The attic fan brings in fresh sea air to help keep the whole house cool. Everything is spotlessly clean and lovingly cared for.

Cautionary note to parents regarding our new porch: There is a less-than-30'' drop from the front porch (no railing). Floor-to-ceiling screens form the ''walls'' of the deck. Please consider whether this is appropriate for your young children.

SweetHaven at Martha's Vineyard is your personal island retreat. The property is situated on a wooded site on a loop road that does not attract through traffic. Enjoy the peace and quiet while still having easy access to all the main roads. There is off-street parking for your car, but you will find that SweetHaven's location is convenient enough for the vacationer on foot or bicycle. Buses from Vineyard Haven run regularly to all parts of the island and groceries are within walking distance. The public boat launch (on Lake Tashmoo) and tennis courts are a 10 minute walk. For young children, there is a nice playground at a nearby elementary school.

Martha's Vineyard is a vacationer's paradise, with miles of beaches and acres of scenic conservation land that has been preserved for the public enjoyment of hikers, bicyclists and nature enthusiasts of all types.

Perhaps the island's most attractive feature is its old-world charm, evident in picturesque scenes and quaint villages. Enjoy everything the island has to offer from your home base at SweetHaven.

Nevaeh's Sweet Haven

My daughters have been coming to the Vineyard since they were born, and our last-minute plans and 20th wedding anniversary were met with remarkable ease. The house was in a great location, not far from any activity one might want to experience. Sweet Haven was equipped with everything we needed, and it's so comfortable that we just didn't want to go home. We played family games that had us laughing uncontrollably, and we can't wait to come back next year...peaceful, quiet, serene, clean, etc.

Thank you for allowing my family to share your home. My granddaughter Nevaeh ("Heaven" backwards) even thought the house was named after her!

Sweet Haven Is Heaven

We have been staying in vacation rentals for almost 25 years including the U.S., Mexico, Australia and Europe. We are accustomed to the photographs not always accurately portraying the accommodations in person as on the website, but this was certainly not our experience with Sweet Haven - the property was much better in person. The house is extremely well appointed, comfortable, spacious, well equipped and great location. There were comfortable beds and furniture. An extremely spacious kitchen with everything one would need. We carry some kitchen items with us when we travel, but they were not needed here because everything was provided. The rental process could not have been easier. We appreciated all of the kind and informative notes around the house. The house was spotless when we arrived. The washing machine/dryer are of high quality and there were detailed instructions on how to operate. We had no problems during our entire stay. There is a binder for the house that includes restaurants, places to visit and everything one needs plus more.

The location is close to Vineyard Haven and an easy walk into town. We purchased a month senior bus pass and this worked exceptionally well. We did rent a car for a week when we had company. A number of markets/liquor stores on the island offer free delivery all over the island, and we used this service as well.

The only issue we were not sure about was the telephone and dialing information. We learned we had to dial (1) and the area code for local calls. We made a long distance call and not sure if this was included in the cable/internet package we selected.

We highly recommend this rental and we give our permission for the homeowner/rental agency to provide perspective renters our email.

This was one of our best vacation rentals. The rental fee was a very good and reasonable price. No, we are not related or know the homeowners and this is a totally unbiased review.

Jerry and Joe,
We're so glad you enjoyed your visit to Martha's Vineyard! I can see where the telephone would be confusing to someone from out of state. Because Massachusetts has overlapping area codes, we must dial the full 10-digit number, even for local calls. The cost of phone calls within the United States is included in the rental.
Thank you for choosing SweetHaven.

Paradise Found

This rental is everything a vacationer wants to have a great time on Martha's Vineyard. Whenever I want to get away and spend time on the island, I always look for this property's availability FIRST. If its availability does not meet my plans, I change my plans to meet its availability. I really like this place!!!

Just unpack and have fun!!! Clean, bright, convenient location!

We enjoyed a fun-filled and relaxing week at Sweet Haven! The house was private but a very quick and easy bike ride into town. The house feels spacious.The kitchen looks very new. The hardwood floors throughout were beautiful. We were happy to find living essentials such as laundry detergent and paper towels already in place.The laundry/downstairs bathroom was absolutely wonderful with the new laundry machines! The new outdoor shower has hot and cold water with a built in bench and hooks for towels.The large TV was enjoyed from the comfy couches after exhausting days of fun. A super large walk-in closet upstairs housed all our "stuff" for the week, with room to spare. It was easy to access from the large bedroom or the hallway, so no need to sneak through the bedroom if someone was sleeping. The homeowners included thoughtful touches throughout, such as nightlights in the bathrooms,and paperbacks, including one of Cape Cod ghost stories. We had a full week of good weather, but we would have enjoyed just hanging out in the house if necessary. I can't say enough good things about this simple, well-appointed beachy home! Rent and enjoy!

Sweet home

We had such a great week at your house. Your house is cozy, clean, and we felt like at home. The weather was amazing, and we were at beach every day. Our favorite beaches are Long Point and Lambert's Cove. Our girls very much enjoyed your house. We will be back next year.

Perfect

Sweet Haven feels like the owners have taken great care to assure a perfect stay. The house is ideally located in a very quiet lane that's, oh, 2 minutes from Vineyard Haven central. It feels spacious, is un-fussily comfortable, and is equipped with top-drawer-everything-you-could-need, including their personally-assembled guide to the Vineyard. A great choice.

The perfect rental

Had a wonderful week out here on MV, and your house was perfect. I've been coming to the Vineyard for the past 20+ years, so I know the island pretty well. but it was such a treat to have SweetHaven as a home base. A nice walk or bike ride into town; close to Lambert's Cove Beach (my fav) and many favorite eating spots. The house was clean, bright, cheery, updated - everything I needed, including the fantastic outdoor shower! I will definitely be back to MV, and hope to rent your house again!

Perfect for our family!

This was a great size property, clean, and had all the things we needed. A short walk to town for our coffee at Mocha Mott's and close to the supermarket so we could stock up for our trips to the beach. We'll be looking to return next year, as we love the Vineyard and we like to keep our stay there simple. I could tell that the owners cared that their guests had a lovely stay!
