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.
