Description

Description

If you're looking for a vacation setting that's rural and tranquil, minutes by foot to pristine beaches and far from summer crowds, this Chappaquiddick house is for you! Pets are welcome, too.

The house is located in a small area called Wasque (ways-kwee), five miles from the Chappy ferry. It is just across the street from the Wasque Reservation, a 200-acre nature reserve with wide open beaches and excellent fishing. Katama Bay is at the end of the road, only a few minutes from the house. Its calm waters are perfect for swimming, boating and shellfishing.

The house has a slightly rustic character: pine paneled walls, exposed rafters, painted floors and country furnishings. There are three bedrooms, 1.5 baths (as well as an enclosed outdoor shower), a well-equipped kitchen, a separate dining room with a fireplace and a living room with a wood stove. A large, breezy deck off the dining room is furnished for outdoor dining. Upstairs, the master bedroom opens on to a sunny deck with partial water views of the bay and the ocean. At night there’s a breathtaking view of the Milky Way—even the International Space Station is visible as it orbits the Earth.

Chappy moves at a slower pace than the rest of Martha’s Vineyard. Hiking trails near the house wend through woods and along scenic bluffs. Myoi, a Japanese-inspired garden, features native and exotic plants and trees clustered around a serene pond. The Chappaquiddick Community Center offers yoga classes and classical music concerts. Chappy has no stores, ATMs, restaurants or public transportation. These you’ll find in Edgartown—just a three-minute ride across the harbor on the Chappy Ferry. Edgartown also offers must-see historic architecture, a movie house and fishing excursions. Buses from Edgartown travel to Oak Bluffs, West Tisbury and the Vineyard's other picturesque towns.

Please note: Rentals are Friday - Friday

Perfect Chappy Cabin

I stayed here for all of July of 21' and had a wonderful time! Rebecca is a fantastic and responsive host that made me stay extremely pleasurable.

The house has a charming cabin style feel complete with lots of board games and books. The location is amazing and in walking distance to two beautiful beaches. If you have pets they're in luck because you could not ask for better morning walks with your pooch.

I really loved how remote and quiet the location is but also how close you are to the important stuff like beaches, paths, hikes and woods.

I would highly recommend, my stay, it was charming summer adventure.

The perfect little bolthole

We stayed at Rebecca's place for two weeks at the end of summer. It comes as no surprise that Chappaquiddick is not everyone's cup of tea – it's a far cry from the manicured flawlessness of Martha's Vineyard – but I found both the island and Rebecca's place to be the perfect wind-down from a stressful lockdown season in New York City. (And when my teenage daughters found it all a bit dull, MV was but a short ferry trip away).

The house is humble, but the love that went into its creation is palpable. And as rustic as it might be, we found ourselves wanting for nothing. Ok, not quite nothing – the wifi was awful when we arrived, and hampered both my wife and I who both needed to continue working for the first part of our stay. Rebecca was super responsive and sympathetic and quickly had her internet provider come by to update what turned out to be an outdated router, which immediately fixed the issue.

Aside from that little glitch, we found the place to be a perfect respite. It is secluded and quiet, with a wonderful deck off the master bedroom, which is nestled in the trees and provides a perfect view of the sunset.

The main living area is crowded with bookshelves and hung with cheery paper lanterns and various maritime bits and pieces, all of which felt homey and welcoming but not cluttered.

We wouldn't hesitate in recommending the place, and hope to return soon.

Relaxing Rental

I cannot wait to return to this house for our fourth summer this upcoming August. At this point, I would call it more of a home than just a house. It is easy to make yourself comfortable when everything is well stocked and ready to go - as this house is.

Between the books and records, there is plenty to keep everyone entertained on the rare gloomy day indoors. But the highlight is absolutely the nearby beach and the water views from the top deck. The beach is the most serene I've been to (that is, until we set up paddle ball or bocce there). Being able to spread out and have privacy on the beach is such a luxury. Having that benefit while still being able to walk home for a snack or bathroom run is even better! This beach would be a great place for kids - there are hardly ever other people, and the water is shallow/ protected from waves by a sand bar. This past year we brought big tubes and drifted out in the bay with a cold drink in hand.

At some point you will have to tear yourself away from Chappy (it's not easy) to explore the rest of the Vineyard. My favorites are ice cream in Oak Bluffs, seafood in Menemsha, and shops in Edgartown. We finish many of our nights at the Seafood Shanty right across the ferry- that way we can park for free on the Chappy side and travel across on foot. What could be better than fresh seafood with a water view and cool breeze?

I would absolutely suggest this house to anyone looking for a funky place to relax and unwind. Rent your linens, make a car ferry reservation, and get yourself to paradise!

Funky, fun and fabulous

Our family loved the house, the location, and of course Chappy. Wonderful colors and unique furnishings (check out the grandfather's clock and all the books). The decks are great, especially the top one with a view of the bay and ocean, and the one downstairs with a big picnic table for meals. Lots of birds and even a resident spider (outside) with a gorgeous web which changed daily. The house has everything anyone could want (the best equipped of any place I've stayed), and Rebecca was a wonderful resource before and during our visit. The beaches (Katama Bay and Wasque) are a 5 min. walk from the house, and we had a great time kayaking on Katama Bay. We highly recommend the house for a relaxing and comfortable family vacation. show more show less

Ideal spot for laid-back vacationers

This past August, we had the pleasure of returning to this charming house for our second summer. Once again, we could not have been more pleased!

After a couple years, we have established a routine. We bring our car across to MV on a mid-day ferry Friday. I cannot say enough how beneficial the Friday rental start is. The ferries have more availability and town is quieter while we stop by the market to get any fresh foods we didn't bring over in our cooler. (Don't plan on buying anything once you cross over to Chappy- there are no stores). We then have Friday afternoon to unpack before weekend visitors arrive.

We spend the next few days scooping up guests from the airport and ferries. We explore the Aquinnah Cliffs and various lighthouses, but the best part of the day is always coming home to Chappy. When the snow piles up in the middle of winter, I think of the heavenly outdoor shower, boys grilling in the backyard, and music + cocktails on the deck. We make sure to walk down to the end of the road and catch the sunset over the water every night. We always have the beach entirely to ourselves (with the exception of the burrowing crabs and resident seagulls).

This house is absolutely what you make of it. If you are looking for luxurious accommodations or to be in bustling downtown, this isn't it. Bring games (we like bocce, cornhole, dice, and cards) and friends, and I guarantee you will have a great vacation here.

Rebecca is a responsive and caring homeowner who makes the whole booking process run smoothly. We have already signed up for our week this summer and recommend that any other laid back, nature- loving vacationers do the same!

Amazing Chappy Week!

We had the most amazing week at this cozy escape on Chappaquiddick. We arrived as overtired city goers in need of a vacation. This rustic paradise was exactly what we needed! The house was perfect for hosting friends and family, grilling in the yard, and getting some sun on the many decks. A quick walk down the road provided a secluded beach where we were able to spread out, play beach games, and observe some fabulous birds & wildlife.

Having tried other towns on the Vineyard, I am very happy we landed on Chappy. The island offers peaceful nature preserves for fishing, clamming, and sunbathing. The sunrises from Cape Poge and sunsets from Wasque were unlike anywhere else. Yet the restaurants and shopping of Edgartown were only a two minute ferry ride away!

You will definitely need to pack your car, some company, and a good book- you are in for a week of calm and quiet! We are so lucky we found somewhere where we could really feel at home. Thank you to our homeowner for being so warm and welcoming & keeping the most well stocked rental I have ever seen.

Hi Anna,

I want to thank you for the rave review! Five stars! I'm super happy that you, Billy, and your friends and family had such a great time at the house and that you dove into and enjoyed all of Chappy's beauty and bounty: its gorgeous (near-empty) beaches, clamming, bird watching, stunning sunsets, and a big slice of rare peace and quiet.

Frankly, a few renters haven't cottoned to the house. "Too remote." "There are moths in the house." (gasp!) Of course, I'm completely biased about the house. I love it. So when guests like you and Billy express such appreciation for the house and for Chappy, it really does my heart good.

It would be wonderful to have you as guests again next summer.

All best,
Rebecca

As soon as we pulled into the driveway, we loved the house--from the millions of books to the lanterns and the little window connecting the dining room and the kitchen, the deck and the record player. It was amazing how close we were to the water! We had such a great time staying at your lovely, colorful and fun house! We hope we can come here again. Thank for the great experience!

We've had an awsome time at your house! WE LOVE CHAPPY! We enjoyed tanning on the beautiful beach right down the road! Summer here is gorgeous and we've enjoyed every minute of our time here. We've been coming to Martha's Vineyard for 17 summers and truly love it here. We're sad our trip is over--can't wait to be back soon
