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!
