Description

Description

Felix Domus ( Happy Home in Latin ) 72 Pine Street, Edgartown proper starts at the top of the Pine Street.

I do offer off day rentals to accommodate a guest if possible. Wednesday to Wednesday, etc.

The house will be deep cleaned every turn over, all cabinets outside and in. All towels and linens washed as
usual.

I talk to each and every guest to ensure a great stay.

You see the pictures of the house , no need to go into that. It's a family home with character, Housekeeping comes every turnover-it's clean, I leave it turnkey- bed linens, beach and bath towels, coolers, beach chairs and A/C.

First, so close to town you can hear the bells of the Edgartown Whaling Church chiming on the hour. Take a chill and coffee, get up early to listen to the chimes and birds, its worth it because when you leave it's over.

Second, its very private yard, sunbath on the deck for your summer tan in complete privacy, you can hear the neighbors, kids laughing and playing, but you can't see them, and they can't see you.

At the Top of Pine Street

Turn left – and you will see:

Restaurants, Edgartown Old Whaling Museum, Shops:, convenience store, bike rental, jewelry, movie theatre, fashion, ice cream- coffee shops, library, banking, art galleries, beaches, book stores, night clubs, fine dining, and star gazing, at the end get on the Ferry to Chappy- “The One Time”

Turn right- you will see:

Bike lanes to Edgartown School, South Beach, State Beach, and OB.

Cannon Ball Park-, Edgartown Fresh Fish Market, bike rental, convenience store, restaurants, Dairy Queen (yum), Stop & Shop, sub/pizza shops, banking, hardware store,

Sleeps 6 with-2 bedroom with a double bed in each, sleeping loft with 2 twins and a pull out couch

Beaches: 0.5 mile to Light House Beach, 0.8 mile to Fuller Street Beach, 1 1/2 miles to Bend in Road (State) Beach, and 3 1/4 miles to South Beach.

1/2 mile to Edgartown School for Tennis, Basketball, Baseball and Roller Hockey

2.4 miles (6 minutes) to Vineyard Haven Golf Course, 5.5 miles (13 minutes) to Farm Neck Golf Course Golf Course

Cathedral ceiling living room, cozy 2 bedrooms (double bed in each), 1 sleeping loft (2 twin beds), a pullout sofa-bed. The house sleeps 6+. Very sunny dining area/ sitting room. There is a private deck, an outdoor shower and grill, a 12' by 14' foot sunning deck in the private backyard, with full patio set furniture.

    Welcoming and comfortable!

    During this year's annual visit we found this comfy home to be as welcoming as it has always been! It's extremely clean and everything you need for your stay is available. The house is located in a quiet family neighborhood with a large yard and back deck- you might not ever leave, but if you do, Edgartown, beaches, and the bike path are steps away. You get the convenience of exciting MV life along with the quiet of a side street. Couldn't be better! The homeowner is extremely responsive and keeps his property in good condition. We love staying here, it feels like home! show more show less

    Perfect for our family weekend

    This was a great spot to settle down for a long weekend. Our family of 5 fit perfectly. A very easy walk to Edgartown center, we had a car and were able to visit beautiful beaches, towns throughout the Vineyard and go food shopping easily to make meals at home. Would definitely come back and stay if we need a getaway.

    So more important than the house is the quality of the guest. You're on the great guest list. Come back and enjoy the great guest pricing. Generous with my housekeepers and you ran the MV 1/2 marathon. God Bless You. Keep "Felix Domus " (Happy Home in Latin) in mind. You and your family make it a Happy Home. Cheers- JT Topham. Thats my preppy name. My friends call me Top. Cheers! Have a great summer.

    Great Place to Stay in Edgartown

    The house is well maintained, and stocked with everything you need to have a great vacation. It is set back from a side street, and the neighborhood is quiet. The yard is large and we made use of both the deck overlooking the back yard, and the swing in the front yard.

    It is an easy walk to several close by restaurants (Atria, Town, Sharky's and Bad Martha's), and the walk into Edgartown is short enough to walk easily as well.

    The owner was very attentive, and helpful. We enjoyed staying and look forward to returning in 2023. show more show less

    The house is in a quiet neighborhood with a beautiful private yard. The home was clean, comfortable and well situated for our stay. It is located within walking distance to Stop & Shop and all downtown Edgartown has to offer! The owner John is kind, attentive and helped to make our stay great. We hope to return next summer!!

    Wonderful experience!

    We've stayed at this perfectly situated and well cared for home for several years and as soon as we leave we set dates to come back. In a quiet neighborhood, everything you need is within, the owner is extremely responsive, and all in all it's a home away from home.

    What a gem!

    We were fortunate enough to win the Marshfield High's School Touch Down Club raffle.

    Go Rams-super bowl champs and perennial Massachusetts state power football program. I'm a football mom and my husband a Rams coach.

    One of the coaches volunteered his home for the fundraising.

    We booked a prime June week below market (no one was paying attentions at the raffle).

    Great location, clean, friendly neighborhood. Our first time visit to the island as a family and we were thrilled with the spot and accommodations.

    The coach gave us a list of activities to enjoy with our 6 year-old.

    Spot on for our 6 year old.
    · Crab Creek-catching live crabs, catch and release
    · Harvesting Mussels on Chappy
    · South Beach big waves (with a life preserver of course- our son is fearless).
    · Sunset at Menemsha Beach.

    We'll bid more next year for the value. We're hoping it will be annual event for our family. And watch our son grow bigger on the "growing wall" over the years to come.

    Highly recommended.

    GO RAMS AND THANKS JOHN!

    Comfy Cottage Perfect for Fun

    What an adorable home. Very comfortable with all the amenities one could need. A full kitchen with all the utensils I needed to cook, washer/dryer, and plenty of sheets and towels for my use. It's literally walkable to downtown Edgartown, but with a super spacious lawn I was very comfortable hanging out on the deck and enjoy the sun and my book. The owner was super easy to talk to and helped make my stay perfect. Oh and the place was immaculate when I got there. Francine, the cleaning lady, is a gem! show more show less

    Great little getaway

    This was a great time to visit the island, not too busy, and perfect weather. Staying at this house is always a treat and will continue to be a repeat visit. Walking distance to downtown Edgartown to have a romantic picnic at the lighthouse or make a dinner in with the full kitchen and grill.

    Such a cozy place on the island on a quiet street allowing you to truly unwind and enjoy some relaxation. Thank you for letting us stay here!

    Great location, quiet street

    We loved the location of the house! Walking distance to town and to Stop & Shop. We used the new beach chairs and paddle game at the beach most days. The A/Cs worked well on the few hot days. We appreciated John's tips and he called when we were arriving on the ferry to let us know we could check in early. He is a very attentive and proud homeowner, if we don't find our own house to buy we will be back!

    Holly,

    Thanks-if you're looking to buy it's a good place to stay so you can see all the charm of Edgartown-Pluses and maybe some thing you don't want.

    Hope to have you back.

    My brother put up a house in Edgartown on 1980, been going there ever since- gets in your blood. I've owned the cottage since 2004. My boys, their friends and I spent every April vacation there playing wiffle ball, cribbage, all the boys leraning to drive at 14, jumping off Jaws Bridge and working on the cottage I'm honest, and I don't oversell it. It's your vacation, I want to make sure it meets your needs and expectations.

    What is special about this property?
    It's the location. No need for a car. The downtown of Edgartown starts at Pine Street. 1//2 mile and you're in the water at Edgartown Harbor. 1/4 mile to Stop & Shop, 1/4 mile to Edgartown School for tennis, basketball, baseball and street hockey. The Island bike paths converge at the end of the street, from there it's to 3.5 miles to South Beach, 1 mile to Town Beach and 6 miles to OB. It's a friendly mix use neighborhood of year round islanders and seasonal residence that are friendly. The back yard is very private with a large deck area for sunbathing. It's a family home with personality. I try to leave it turnkey with coolers, linens and towels, wiffleball, fishing rods, and a basketball hoop at the end of the driveway.

    What is special about your town?
    It's Edgartown. Shops and shopping, movie theater, local restaurants that can be upscale or family style, historical buildings, library and the ferry to Chappy.
