We cannot say enough about our experience and comfort at this beautiful Edgartown home! After renting for 13 years elsewhere, this was the best appointed (and cleanest) house we have ever set foot. The owners have outdone themselves with details that guests might need: Q-tips, first-aide kits, large dishes for entertaining, cloth placements/napkins, toys/games, beach equipment, beach bags and the like. For our family, we love to cook and used to have to transport knives, cheese graters, a food processor to other homes - not in this home. You will have everything you need to whip up a gourmet meal, including Al-Clad pots and pans. The bathrooms are large, new and modern - plenty of room to have your own space. The master bedroom is gigantic with two closets, dressers, hamper and a large master bath plus a deck overlooking the pond. There are two good-size bedrooms with queen beds and one small bedroom with two twin beds. All beautifully decorated and spotless. Laundry is in the basement.
First floor has a full bathrooms, a den/TV room that has doors so kids or adults can have their own space while the larger living room off the kitchen has another TV or sounds system where we streamed music while we cooked. A huge deck is off the back of the home with plenty of seating plus a screened in porch with more seating for evening when the bugs are out. The yard is huge in both the front and back of the house and it's a quick 2 min walk over the dock to the "island" where we rented kayaks for access to the pond. We did swim in the pond but also kayaked over to the state beach (it took less than 10 minutes to do this) and enjoyed the beach over there as well.
The house is very quiet, situated between Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. We brought our bikes and accessed the bike path many times just a few blocks from the home. I highly recommend this place for families who want privacy, quick access via driving or biking to two town, and love water sports.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We use to drag so much stuff to the island when we rented a house that we said once we owned a home it would be fully supplied with the same quality finery that we had in our own house. We love to have nice serving linens, dishes and glassware for hors d'oeuvres and dinner. Thus we feel our renters appreciate the finer accessories as much as we do.
Having beach equipment and towels there just saves so much space up in the car.
Please come back again, and enjoy the island.
All the best and thank you for renting our home,
