We stayed at this lovely home for the first time this year. The house was very clean when we arrived, which was the first thing I noticed when we walked in. The kitchen is spacious and modern but the overall decor definitely has the "beach house" vibe. Had all the appliances we needed (washer/dryer, grill, coffee maker, etc.) and the central A/C was much appreciated during a muggy August week. My favorite was the outdoor shower, which was used every day! Beach chairs, a hammock and bikes available,and it was nice not to have to bring chairs that would take up space in our car. The yard had beautiful flowers and it was nice to sit on the back deck with a coffee in the morning. There isn't grass in the yard, but no matter as we went to the beach and parks and found plenty of open area there for our son and dog to run and play.
The master bedroom was large with a flat screen TV and skylights - if you like to sleep in and prefer darkness in the morning then you may want to choose one of the other two rooms which had less light. Personally I did not mind! The second bedroom upstairs was large enough to set up my son's pack 'n play so he could nap in there alone.
The house is in a nice location, Dodger's Hole was quiet but a close drive to downtown Edgartown, beaches, Oak Bluffs and Farm Neck. Great location for walking/running, close to the main road.
Joan was helpful and accommodating during the entire process, we were so very happy to be able to bring our dog with us. She provided nice detail of the islands and restaurant/beach recommendations and forwarded emails to us about the events taking place during our week. She was quick to answer any question I had after we arrived. Really couldn't have asked for a better hostess!
All in all we are very pleased to have found this rental, and very happy with our vacation! Would definitely recommend this house to others or rent again if we make it back to the Island :)
