Another great vacation here!

We are enjoying our second stay at this attractive and so functional house in a quiet West Tisbury neighborhhood. The four of us including two young teens have plenty of spaces, indoors and outside, to be together or to get some alone time. We love having access to the pool across the street from the house and the pingpong table in the basement. We again found ourselves eating more at the house because the well equipped kitchen made food prep a breeze.

Wonderfull relaxing place

This house was nicer than expected. Very comfortable, equipped with everything one might need. Lovely property on a quiet street,a joy to return to after a busy day. We had a very relaxing two weeks and are considering going back again next year. If you are looking for a great vacation spot, we would highly recommend this property. Getting the parking pass to Lambert"s Cove Beach was great - it is an amazing place, loved it!!!

Perfect Get Away!

We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely and comfortable home! The property is so tranquil and serene. The home offers the perfect combination of 'rustic Vineyard' and modern amenities, with its wide pine floors, vaulted ceilings and contemporary (and well stocked) kitchen. We truly had a spectacular vacation and plan to come back next summer!

Attention to detail

We will ABSOLUTELY be rebooking for next year! This house has everything you could possibly think of... All the amenities! Loved the location. It is perfect for little ones to go swimming literally across the street from the home. Also, it is close to great beaches, biking trails, galleries and farms! Just a short drive to Edgartown and Oak Bluffs too. With a toddler, I found the house was child safe too! I would highly recommend this place and am excited for next year!!! Thank you so much, Will and Kim, for sharing your amazing home! show more show less

Hospitable

The house is lovely, Lambert's Cove beach is great, and the nearby swimming pool is large and well maintained. But what really makes this place is how welcoming it is. No running out to buy TP or salt and pepper--the house is nicely stocked and everything is well explained. Highly professional and courteous. And spend plenty of time in the hammock.

Awesome time on MV!

My family (2+3 kids) passed a fantastic July 4th week at his wonderful house. Rarely have we rented anywhere that was so thoroughly equipped. We brought along the usual basics that you think you will need and never even had to unpack them! The kitchen is especially well stocked down to washing up products, bags etc.

The house was spotless, in a beautiful, secluded location with tennis courts and pool but centrally placed to make any day trip easy.

Suffice to say, a wonderful, stress free vacation thanks to the thoughtful planning of the house owners. show more show less

Beautiful big house!

We truly loved this house! The pictures do not do it justice, as it is wonderfully big, airy and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is modern and luxurious, and the house has every item you could need. The outside space is great for playing ball or just relaxing. We loved this house and had a wonderful vacation enjoying it!

Clean and Serene

This is our third year staying at this clean, serene home. With 3 young children, the house is in a perfect location. There is a pool across the street and beautiful Lambert's Cove a 10 minute drive. Close enough to shopping, but away from the crowds.

The home itself has a beautiful screened porch, a barbecue, and outdoor shower and hammock. Everything we needed for a relaxing vacation!

3rd Year

This was our third year vacationing in this home, and it truly is OUR home during our special two weeks each year on MV. The vacations get better! The home has everything you could need including accessories for the beach; it is exceptionally equipped to entertain; and the location combines calm seclusion, but minutes to bike paths, beaches and shopping. Beautiful, clean, comfortable home. We intend to come back again and again.

Will and Kim Messenger live in the Boston area. Kim fell in love with Martha's Vineyard as a child during family vacations and summer camp there. When she met Will, she introduced him to the Island, and they began to plan a way to have a summer home there and share it with others. They bought this home on Stoney Hill Lane from the builder in 1994 and have been using it and offering it to renters ever since. Their two daughters grew up loving the house. One was even born on Martha's Vineyard while they lived there in the off-season. All of them say it's their favorite place in the world. Both Will and Kim work in the non-profit world, and renting the house for vacationers makes it possible for them to keep it in top condition and share the Island experience with others.

What is special about this property?
You will feel at home the moment you walk in. For over twenty years, our guests always tell us they feel comfortable, safe, and care-free. We keep everything in top condition, and at the same time it feels comfortable and relaxed. We're fortunate that the builder created an open, easy floor plan and completed it with beautiful, yet sturdy, finishes and details. It's bright, sunny, breezy (if you open the windows), uncluttered, and quiet. It has all the amenities people ask about, except air conditioning. We realized that air conditioning creates and inside and an outside. When it's is on, you close the windows and doors and shut yourself in. We want just the opposite--a home that opens to the outdoors. So we decided not to have air conditioning.

We welcome children. Kids love the association pool across the lane. Families like the well-equipped kitchen, whether cooking seriously or simply having a quick breakfast before heading out to the beach. The outdoor shower is always a big hit. Many renters tell us the screen porch is their favorite room. (It's our favorite, too.)

You can see from the reviews that people always love staying here. The most common thing we hear is, ''It's better than I expected!'' Maybe the website doesn't quite do it justice. Still, we're happy it beats expectations. Maybe it's because of the love we put into it ourselves during the off-season, while keeping everything centered around the best experience for our renters. Some come back for years.

What is special about your town?
West Tisbury is the quiet town in the center of Martha's Vineyard. It's close to the bustling down-island towns and close to the lovely up-island beaches and nature walks. The house comes with a walk-on pass to Lambert's Cove beach, which is only open to West Tisbury residents and renters. (You can buy a car pass for Lambert's Cove by taking your rental agreement to the rec shed to prove you're at WT renter.) Alley's General store is a throwback to old-time, small-town living. Note: If you want step outside and be right among shops, restaurants, harbors, and night spots, this isn't the place for you. Try one of the down-island towns. Ours is a place for quiet and nature right outside your door, with the shops, restaurants, etc., a (short) drive or bike ride away.

The house is on a small cul-de-sac with just a few neighbors. The main Island bike path is nearby, along with miles of walking trails right at the end of the lane.
