A Cozy, Clean, Private Place to Retreat and Relax

My Love and I, and her 23-year-old son and his friend, rented the home from Steve. The house is big enough for privacy: The young men stayed downstairs in separate rooms, while we stayed upstairs in the master bedroom.

We chose this home because we like quiet; it is on a quiet street in West Tisbury. The surrounding shade trees provide for maybe 10 degrees cooler inside the house than outside, on a sunny day. We chose Sept 10-16, 2017 because it was just past the busy season (more quiet), yet the Fishing Derby was in progress. The young men were there for the renowned striped bass and black sea bass fishing, along with the night life. Steve has a buddy who owns a small motorboat, and the man took the young men and me out on two different afternoons, fishing, for a reasonable fee. (Fishing licenses are easy to get online - the home is wired with Comcast, and Steve directed us to his favorite nearby bait shop). We were in the Aquinnah area, the west side of the island, and we each caught striper schoolies. We caught 3 keepers among us, took a 31-inch and a 34-inch striper home and released a 29-inch. We fileted both of them back at the house, froze one to take home and grilled one (on the outdoor grill) for family dinner in Steve's kitchen. Another evening, the young men and I drove through Edgartown, took the brief car ferry to Chappaquiddick and drove down to Wasque for some night fishing. If you live in the city, you'll enjoy the stars scintillating in the night sky and the baitfish jumping out of the water in a pool between sand banks.

Steve has considerable knowledge of the island and provided many good suggestions. Steve thoroughly answered our questions about how to meet our special dietary needs, and he directed us to a natural food store and other specialty markets and restaurants. He told us about the two movie theaters on the island, Entertainment Cinemas in Edgartown (bargains on Tuesdays, more mainstream fare, often in 3D) and the wonderful MV Film Center in Vineyard Haven, marvelous for more independent films. We enjoyed both.

Very Quiet Home - Right next to bike path and State Forest

In July of 2017, my two 9 year old, twin daughters, my wife, and I began our first Vineyard vacation at [this home] in West Tisbury. The kids liked the pristine beaches at Katama, but watch the undertow if you go there. The Lambert’s Cove beach is more kid friendly as far as watchful eyes are concerned. The kids were very excited to see cows, llama's and sheep (none in Andover). We stopped at Ghost Island farms on State Road for veggies and to see cows. Across the street is Chilmark Pottery where Geoffrey Boar, the potter, made a special pot for the kids and got them excited about pottery.

There is nothing like watching your kid, sitting on the Flying Horses at the Oak Bluffs Carousel gleefully stretching to reach a gold ring on the Merry Go Round. The carousel is over 100 years old.

The island captured our attention. The home was great and the owner (Steve) called us when we arrived to make sure we were settled in, and checked in with us in the middle of the week as well. We did the usual things – trips to the beach, kid games, and ice cream on Circuit Ave in Oak Bluffs, wandering through the Gingerbread Houses at the Campground Meeting Association, grilling on the deck, stopping at the Net Result Fish Market, shopping at Cronig’s, and stopping at a few inexpensive restaurants for family meals.

We slept well. The upstairs essentially has two master bedrooms with queen beds, so if you are two couples partnering up, with two or three kids in total that’s a nice arrangement, and makes for a very affordable vacation.

We are planning to go back to go back to the island again and rent this home again.

Very cozy, private, clean, comfortable

5 stars out of 5
My wife and I, our two daughters 9 & 11, also our 17 year old son and his friend rented the house at 281 Oak Lane directly from the owner Steve C for the fourth of July week. This is a busy week on the island with a lot to do including the Edgartown fireworks. Twice we went to the Lamberts Cove town beach (a pass is $50) and once we went to the stunning Trustees of the Reservations beach (south facing ocean, plus a safe for kids salt pond) both in West Tisbury where the house is located. No one should miss a ride out to Aquinnah or Gay Head cliffs, with the Gay Head light and view of the Saint Elizabeth Islands or the sands of Mosup beach. My son and his friend were engaged with playing frisbee in the park in Tisbury, and jumping off the bridge on State Beach in Oak Bluffs. My daughters made friends in the area of the bridge which is a social gathering area for kids of all stripes. Lets talk about the house. We arrived and it was neat and clean. The owner greeted us as he was departing as we were arriving. Really nice guy-took time to show us how everything worked and all kinds of ideas on things to do. In season, the house rents for $1950 a week and is well worth the investment. If you want our week rent in January or no latter than late February as Ferry tickets will be in short supply not long after that, if you wait. What stood out about the house? The owner is an audiophile and has a stereo system that sounds like nothing you've heard before with lots of CD's to capture your attention. We (my wife & I & our son) were captivated by the soothing sounds of Enya and played that CD repeatedly as we relaxed and destressed in the quiet surroundings of the house. I liked reading in the sunroom and we made full use of the deck and the outdoor grill. The beds in the master bedrooms are new and very comfortable. The owner had beach chairs, boogie boards, frisbees, & a beach cart to tow things easily in the basement. You are one house back from a bike path whose ten mile path through the forest attracts the first family every season. It all adds up to a happy, renewing vacation. I would not hesitate to rent this home again, and if you haven't you won't be disappointed if you like quiet, nice amenities, accessibility to the less frantic parts of the island, lots of great restaurants, and plenty to do for the younger members of the family.

Quiet, secluded place to relax

5 stars out of 5
The house is comfortable. It gets a lot of shade, and therefore keeps relatively cool in warmer weather. There are four bedrooms - 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs, and it felt like there was room /space for privacy. There are also some comfortable common areas - including a deck, a porch / glassed-in room leading to the deck, and a kitchen / dining / living room area. The house was clean.

The location is great - right next to bike paths in the state forest; you can follow the paths to roads that will take you to Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven and other parts of the island. The house is also pretty close to the Scottish Bake House, Up Island Cronigs, Trustees of Reservations Long Point Beaches, Seth's Pond, The Ice Pond, Lamberts Cove beach, and Cedar Tree Neck Wildlife Sanctuary. Our family enjoyed the Saturday West Tisbury Farmers Market, The AG fair, Chilmark Flea Market, middle road farm's Mango Lassi and watching the sunsets with Lobster, clams, and corn takeout in Aquinnah.

I recommend this house rental to others - based on price, location, and amenities.

Very Nice, Spacious property at a great price.

5 stars out of 5
This property was a bargain compared w/ it's location. Close to the State forest and coming supplied w/ bikes. We had several runs, and bike rides on the well kept paths of the state forest. The house itself has 4 spacious bedrooms and is well kept. We spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the Vineyard July weather. The property also offered ample privacy due to its location. Both the agent and owner made the business side seamless. I would highly recommend this property.

I built the house in 1992 on an acre and a half of land abutting the State Forest. My parents fell in love with the island and took over the property for six days twice a month from May through October. It pleased me to see them holding hands on the beach and looking like the young lovers they must have been before I, my sister and brother entered the picture. In 2007, I met my wife and introduced her to my favorite activities on the island -- fishing, kayaking, visiting art galleries, savoring the different beaches - Lambert's cove, the Trustees of Reservations lovely beach on long point with a salt pond for kids to play safely, swimming at the newly acquired land bank property - the old ice pond, snorkeling, the art movie house in Tisbury. She loves going to the Scottish bakehouse or ArtCliff diner for breakfast, the Lookout tavern, Offshore Ale, or Barn, Bowl & Bistro in Oak Bluffs with friends and family. Taking an outdoor shower after coming home from the beach nourishes the soul. We'll head on the bike path at the end of the road, for the ten mile loop around the State forest, and sometimes roller blade the whole way -- great exercise. The neighbors dog likes to check out new renters, roll around on his back, show a little love, and hope for a tasty treat from the grill.

What is special about this property?
When i bought the land for my home, I had a choice of a half acre in Edgartown, near Morning Glory farm, or an acre and a half in West Tisbury, near the end of a country road for the same money. I liked it that at the height of the tourist season, I could hear a pin drop in West Tisbury, while Edgartown had much more hustle and bustle. I liked being able to get out the door, turn right from the driveway and be on the bike path to rollerblade, take a quick ten mile loop around the state forest, then back home for lunch. There is more privacy on an acre and a half
and I left south facing trees near the house, to naturally cool it in the heart of summer. Its nice to fall asleep upstairs looking at the stars, to sometimes hear wild turkeys nesting in the tree outside the window, and recently a Great Horned Owl so close I felt I could touch it. I leave 3 bikes at the property so renters can get out and enjoy the natural surroundings. Since we didn't intend to rent it when we furnished the home, it has a nicer presentation than the average Vineyard home. Being an audiophile, I have a high end stereo in the living room to go with the 50 inch flat screen TV. Hopefully, you'll be too busy, to bother much with those, and spend more time grilling on the deck, or jumping in the outdoor shower, after returning from a day at the beach.

What is special about your town?
In the summertime, particularly in July and August, traffic builds on Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluff, and Edgartown roads. Up Island, from West Tisbury, to Aquinnah, are more peaceful and relaxed. West Tisbury, has a more rural character, with more farms, woodlands, and hiking spots. Lambert's Cove beach, a ten minute drive, offers a tranquil sheltered cove, with salt ponds like bookends on either side, for sun bathing, swimming, or packing a dinner and wine, to watch the sunset in the evening as many families gather to do. The Trustees of Reservations Long Point beach, has a south facing surf beach, plus a sheltered salt pond oasis for kids to play safely, with an Osprey nest, and hungry young chicks right out of the parking lot. Once a private pond, the land bank, purchased access to the Old Ice Pond, with trails to the water, and a lovely dock to jump into pristine fresh water. And uncle Seth's pond is on the way to Lambert's Cove on Lamberts Cove road. Cedar tree neck wildlife sanctuary, off Indian Hill road, has walking trails to the beach, salt pond, and a hike not unlike a trip into a haven for Hobbits, with a spectacular cliff overlook of the Elizabeth Islands. West Tisbury has the Agricultural fair in August, the farmers market every Saturday, the artisans festival, the Granary and Field Art galleries, Arrowhead farms horse rides, Polly Hill Arboretum, the post and beam Yoga barn, Chilmark Pottery and MV Glassworks.
