Description

Description

Located on the outskirts of Edgartown near the West Tisbury line is our lovely two bedroom, two bath home sitting in a three acre meadow. This home is part of a compound, with a 3 bedroom main house and an owners' studio, that includes a salt chlorinated, solar heated, 16 X 32 foot swimming pool shared by both houses. The house is entirely separate and private with its own bluestone patio for outdoor grilling and dining as well as a large deck with an outdoor shower and hot tub.

The house features a large central living area with a well stocked kitchen, dining area for 6, and a large living room centered around a gas fire stove. On either end of the living area are two bedrooms with bath featuring queen beds and window seats overlooking the meadow. Off the living room is a wonderful sun porch with dining for eight and a queen sleeper sofa.

The house is tastefully and comfortably furnished and is amply supplied with linens, towels, and beach towels. Most days there is a breeze that blows off the ocean through the meadow, but just in case the humidity and heat of a Vineyard summer overrides the meadow breeze, the bedrooms and living area are air conditioned. We have recently added an ac unit on the sunporch for use at night should you choose to use the sleeper sofa. Kitchen appliances have been recently update. Other amenities include a dishwasher, washer/dryer, Direct TV, and Internet.

Just a short drive away is Long Point Reservation, our favorite beach on the island. In the other direction is a 12 minute drive to South Beach in Katama. The house is truly centrally located being 5 miles from each of the three major towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown. At the entrance to the road leading to the property is access to the bike path that leads you to all areas of the island.

There are bike racks to handle six bikes. You can bike to Morning Glory Farm for local farm produce and fresh baked goods. It's only a ten minute drive to the Farmer's Market in West Tisbury. Available for your use if you have a vehicle that can transport them are kayaks for use in the Vineyard ponds.

A perfect island getaway to relax, enjoy a leisurely swim, or sit in the hot tub under the Vineyard sky after a busy day enjoying all the island has to offer. Enjoy your down time watching the wildlife in the meadow, deer, wild turkey and rabbits abound. House is also furnished with a Disney collection of VCR movies and many games and puzzles for the family to enjoy. Depending upon availability, there is an option to book both this house and the main house (see Property ID #27182) together for multiple family visits.

Perfect for us

We rented this lovely home for three long weekends for work on the Vineyard. The location is perfect, the Kennedys are thoughtful and kind, the views and privacy are very serene and relaxing. We were there off season, but I would love to spend time there in the summer!

Perfect Sanctuary! Almost too good to share

We were tempted to keep this place a secret so we could always come back, but the friendly & accommodating owners deserve this positive review. We knew the area from many years of having rented a nearby home which was recently sold. We were so thrilled that Mrs. Kennedy welcomed us into this lovely space and allowed us to continue our October tradition on the Vineyard.

The house is very privately situated, so even in summer you would feel protected from the crowds. An easy drive to the bike path parking, and Morning Glory Farms for fresh groceries. The house itself was thoughtfully designed with many windows, lots of natural light, a fully equipped kitchen, comfy furniture, and a lovely sunroom for quiet reading (my favorite space). LOVED sitting in the wonderful hot tub and showering outdoors under the starts-even in October! Very private outdoor space with a beautiful natural meadow and great sunsets. We did not get to meet Mr Kennedy, but Mrs. Kennedy was friendly and accommodating, and struck the perfect balance between being available but not intrusive.

We plan to return every October. Really wanted to keep this a secret but could not recommend more highly. Perfect for two couples or a small family.

Wonderful vacation home!

My husband and I came to celebrate our 40 th anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect home. Betty Jean and Bill made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The house is gorgeous with lots of natural light and outdoor spaces, patio and deck for enjoying the natural beauty of the Vineyard. The home is centrally located, so whether we were going into Edgartown for dinner or to Chilmark or Menemsha for a hike, we never had to drive too far. Kitchen was well stocked, every single detail has been thought of. We loved coming home after a long day out to sit in the hot tub under the stars. We hope to come back to this delightful home soon. show more show less

A Gem

We have stayed on the island year after year from one end to the other. This is by far the best spot we have found.

Betty and Bill are great hosts. The property is perfect. Quiet. Clean. Off the beaten path just enough. The pool hot tub house. Heck everything is serene. Walk out the door and drink in the beauty of the vineyard as you look across the meadow. Take a dip in the clean heated pool. I honestly could go on and on.

If you're looking and it's available, do yourself a favor and stay here you will be very happy you did show more show less

Amazing location, home and owners!

Bill and Betty are clearly professionals at this and it shows in every detail. The home is perfect for what it is size wise and clearly every detail was thought of and a great deal of care is given to this unique property so that it can be enjoyed by guests. We will certainly look forward to returning if schedules align.

PS The pool and hot tub are spectacular !

Thank you again!

Vineyard serenity

We enjoyed our two weeks at Betty Jean and Bill's place immensely. The house was immaculate, well-appointed with everything we could have needed and more, and the home and property itself seemed designed to perfectly enhance the beautiful Vineyard setting.

We loved the hot tub, our dog enjoyed spending her days on the sun porch watching the day go by and admiring the wildlife she doesn't normally get to see in the city.

Betty Jean was an incredibly attentive and responsive host, and so friendly too! We always enjoyed bumping into her on the property and look forward to hopefully visiting again soon! show more show less

Phenomenal oasis

Our family of 4 spent a wonderful week in this idyllic getaway. The home is as beautiful, bright, and clean as the photos show... or perhaps even better. The pool was wonderfully clean and warm and the hot tub, also sparkling clean, is surrounded by a gorgeous vista of wild Vineyard flora and fauna. Sitting about a 5 minute drive off the main road, we really had the feeling we were isolated from the world with just our family to enjoy this great house. It was nice and quiet and we slept soundly. The owners are fantastic people and perfectly walked the line between being present for our needs or questions and respecting our family time. My feeling is this is the best house we've rented and we will definitely consider coming back. show more show less

Beautiful Home!!!

What an amazing experience, it is a gorgeous home on a stunning, peaceful property. The home is completely stocked with anything you could possibly need beach chairs, games, books, towels, etc..The house is clean and bright with lots of windows. The hot tub and heated salt water pool were a great bonus. The owners are great landlords offering great advice on beaches, restaurants, etc...

We hope to be back again next year!

Family Favorite!

We have been coming to Martha's Vineyard for vacations for numerous years and have stayed at a various homes but this house was by far our family favorite! The house was beautiful and extremely neat and clean. The layout was perfect for our family and provided everything that one could want. The meadow is picturesque with deer, wild turkeys and rabbits included! After a long day at South Beach enjoying the solar heated pool was a great way to wind down the day. Betty Jean and Bill were very welcoming and were so nice to our family! We certainly plan on coming back again next year!

PS. One week is not enough!!!!

Betty Jean and Bill bought the property in 1999 and began developing it as an eventual retirement home. Betty Jean was a school librarian in Texas and Bill did international consulting work in the development of retail marketing and design concepts. We are the parents of four wonderful children and grandparents to five unbelievable grandchildren who love coming to the Vineyard to visit when the houses aren't occupied. Betty Jean's sister was very influential in our decision to buy this property. As a real estate agent on the island, she found the perfect spot, and with her foresight, we each developed three acres and began to fulfill our dreams. Her creativity designed the guest house and garage studio and the idea to provide a vacation home that would outshine the best and we began our journey. The main house was one of Coastal Living magazine's feature houses which we used as a basis for our present design. After nine years of managing projects and rentals from Texas, we completed the final projects of putting in the pool and finishing the basement in the main house as a recreation room. In 2009 Betty Jean retired and we moved to the island where Bill still continues occasional consulting and we are able to provide the unique ability to manage the property on site but still maintain a distance from the guests who enjoy the wonderful experience of vacationing in paradise.

What is special about this property?
The peaceful relaxing atmosphere of the homes in the meadow away from the crowded vacation towns on the island provide a perfect retreat for a quiet time after a busy day enjoying the marvelous activities that only Martha's Vineyard can offer. Our guests enjoy the wonderful starlit sky from the private hot tub or a swim in the mineral pool heated by the sun. Each house has its own outdoor living space with a bluestone patio, barbecue and teak furniture. Most days our guests enjoy the wonderful breezes that drift across the meadow but on those few hot humid days that sometimes linger for a few days the houses have air conditioning. Even on a rainy day, this home is cozy and friendly to all who stay here. Betty Jean and Bill are just a moment away to offer advice on the island's best or to have the pool and hot tubs sparkling and ready for your daily use while also ensuring the lawn, landscaping and property are kept in immaculate condition. Their presence is available when needed but most of the time out of sight.

What is special about your town?
Being on the outskirts of Edgartown on the West Tisbury line is a definite plus. We are 5 miles from each of the three main towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. Access to all three towns is a short drive entering from the back roads which avoids much of the heavier tourist traffic. Access to the Up island towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah also avoids the heavier traveled roads. it truly is central to all that the island offers. Long Point Beach, South Beach, Farmer's Market, Morning Glory Farm. art galleries, the MV Agricultural Hall and Grange Hall are all just a few minutes away. The bike trail is accessible just at the entrance to the road that leads to the property and there are bike racks available for your bikes or rental bikes that can be there when you arrive. You can bike the many bike paths that wind across the island, or you can walk or ride the dirt roads that wander through the nearby Sheriff's Meadow. Also available are kayaks for use in the many Vineyard ponds if your car can be used to carry them. We try to provide you with a very special experience in vacation homes in a very special location.
