    A jewel in vacation rentals

    The Gem is so aptly named. It is a jewel in vacation rentals.
    Just walking in the house, I can feel stressors start to fall off of me.
    My favorite place is the window seat with the great view. I love the large comfy chairs in the spacious kitchen where it's easy to cook and eat with friends and family. I like to stay in the large separate wing of the house that has a small kitchen and frig, large bathroom, and a great view too. I get to share the house with family and friends and have my privacy too. I enjoy just sitting outside of the front of the house, and by the pool looking at the view, seeing the sunrise, the sky change at sunset, and the incredible stars at night. I can even see the sunrise and the stars just lying on the window seat! The private beach is exquisite. Miles of beach. All together the Gem is an oasis in the vineyard! I can't `wait to get back there.

    A True "Gem"

    I can't say enough good things about my stay at the Gem on Abel's Hill in Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard. Being an artist, when I go on a vacation retreat I want most of all to enjoy solitude and peace and quiet. And for me, it's gotta be in a down to earth 'normal' working home where I don't need a manual to figure out how to turn the lights on! As long as there's good water pressure at the shower head, a clean refrigerator, a comfy bed, and plenty of clean linens- then I'm good! The Gem really has all that and a lot more: all the usual amenities in good working order, good wifi, quick access to the beach, a stellar natural environment overlooking the ocean, and best of all for me, plenty of quiet. To hear the wind rustling thru the trees, the ever present murmur of the Atlantic Ocean in the background- it is truly a poetic experience in an stunningly beautiful environment. Next year, I hope to stay for a longer period. Sometimes you stumble upon experiences that have a lasting effect, maybe a place that really speaks to your soul. You know you've found something really special.. And you can't wait to get there again. Over the years, The Gem has become that place for me. I highly recommend it! show more show less

    This home was built and has been owned by one family for its entirety. Amongst the first to spend summers in Chilmark the house is filled with the family's history. We have roots all over the island and often rent to family and friends.

    What is special about this property?
    We love the walks, the pool, the beach, the outdoor shower, the spring flowers and summer grasses, the bike rides and walking paths.

    What is special about your town?
    A quick drive to the all the sights plus access to children's weeklong camps at the Community Center and at The Yard - both in Chilmark. Spend all day at the beach or have fun in the pool.
