Description

Description

Cozy three-bedroom cottage in a quiet neighborhood near the woods and lighthouse of West Chop. One mile from the Vineyard Haven ferry and downtown shops; near the island-wide bus service; and a five-minute walk to a small, family public beach at Grove Avenue.

A bright, sunny kitchen adjoins the spacious new deck overlooking the large back yard with hammock and gas grill. Comfortable living room with TV, cable, DVD player and WiFi. Three bedrooms and a full bath. Washer/dryer with handy clothesline outside for wet swimsuits and towels. Outdoor shower.

West Chop is a popular walking and biking area, with conservation land, historic lighthouse and great water views. 18-hole golf course, tennis courts and beaches nearby. A fitness center and spa downtown, and a YMCA with a pool, exercise facilities and kids’ programs a short drive away. Vineyard Haven is a great base for your Martha’s Vineyard getaway: year-round ferry service, shops, galleries and restaurants, public beaches, walking trails, public library, stage and movie theaters.

The off-season months - especially September and October - have much to offer too, with beautiful weather and lively festivals (including local artisans, films, music, food and wine).

This tranquil hideaway invites relaxation: Have morning coffee on the back deck, put your feet up in the hammock, wander down to the beach for a leisurely dip, then rinse off in the outdoor shower with blue skies overhead. Grill the day’s catch as the sun sets behind the trees. Here you'll have proximity to town, beach, walking trails and more in a peaceful setting on Martha's Vineyard.

    Our third stint in four years renting Lucy's home. We adore its manageable size but the outstanding location most of all. A small public beach sits but a block away, with direct access to the outer harbor of Vineyard Haven. Situated about halfway between downtown Vineyard Haven and West Chop proper, the large property is nestled into a cozy neighborhood with very friendly people from many walks of life. Relax in the shaded hammock, al fresco dining from the back deck or a picnic on the beach, we enjoy it all. Lucy promptly replies to all inquiries. Her home is our family's home for either a week, two weeks or an entire month this summer. show more show less

    Wonderful spot!

    My family of four recently stayed at this home in Vineyard Haven. The house itself was lovely, but we most enjoyed the back deck and spent many mornings and afternoons out there enjoying a drink, nature, and the beautiful gardens. The kitchen was large and that was a bonus! We went to the beach every day and explored all the Vineyard has to offer. Our favorite beaches were Joseph Sylvia State Beach (warm water) and South Beach (big waves). Lucy was very gracious and wonderful to deal with as a renter! Thank you, Lucy! show more show less

    Ms. Myers was a great host during our first of many triips to Martha's Vineyard. She greeted us with information regarding things to do and see. Her home was quiet and cozy. We had plenty of room for our family to enjoy each other's company. The location was great. We walked to town and to the water. The deck was a great feature and the wild turkeys were a reminder of our closeness to nature. Her hospitality was beyond measuse and we felt "at home" during our entire trip.

    Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We had a great time in MV. Your location is perfect.We covered the entire island. Our kids rode their bikes into town and our youngest loved your toy lawn mower. The house is clean and comfortable and we would love to stay again! Kind regards.

    Wonderful

    What a quaint gem! The home is lovingly cared for and complete in every way, from kitchen supplies to beach towels and chairs. Our family loved returning to Vineyard Haven for an extended stay, and the home’s spacious deck proved great for quiet get togethers with friends. Our kids played in the backyard, ping-pong in the basement, enjoyed the hammock and especially walking to the beach. Lucy, thanks for opening your home and making the entire rental process very easy. We very much hope to return! show more show less

    Our 6 week stay at Lucy's house has been just wonderful. The house is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The house is perfectly located - my kids could walk to the neighborhood beach, just around the corner, or we could hop in the car for a ten minute ride to the wonderful family-friendly beach at Tashmoo. Vineyard Haven, the library, ice cream and groceries are all a quick bike ride away. The neighborhood is lovely. I have found Lucy to be a pleasure - she's been extremely accommodating, helpful and reachable when necessary. We have spent beautiful evenings grilling and eating dinner on the deck, and lazy afternoons reading in the hammock. I cannot recommend this house more highly! show more show less

    A great house and fantastic value

    This is a great house. We have rented it almost every year for the past eight years. The owner is a gem, and the house is always excellent. We love walking to the beach or riding our bikes to West Chop. The kids ride their bikes to town for ice cream. Extremely comfortable with wonderful Vineyard charm and wild turkeys in the back yard. We will be back.

    I have come to the island all my life. My two sons live here, and 3 of my grandchildren were born and raised in Vineyard Haven. I spend time in this house in the winter, spring and fall and then rent it in the summer. I am a retired high school English teacher. I now offer writing workshops to various groups, including women in a minimum security prison. My pleasures and joys are my grandchildren and children, walking, swimming, kayaking, singing, reading. My dogs and I have great walks!
    I love this little house and always hope that others will share this love.

    What is special about this property?
    The house has a large deck which looks out into a wood. The neighborhood is quiet and small, but with ready access to a bus which goes to town, a larger wood with trails, a family beach 5 minutes away by foot. Turkeys often stroll through the yard, and there are many birds.The house is cozy and easy. For me it is a peaceful, beautiful property.

    What is special about your town?
    The house is about a mile from Vineyard Haven, but the rest of the island is not far away. There are nature preserves, walking trails, beaches with surf, beaches with calm ocean, a merry-go-round, golf courses, a museum, many concerts and plays throughout the summer, amazing restaurants.....I can't imagine anything missing for someone wanting a wonderful, unique vacation!
