    Amazing

    We have been renting on the island for over 15 years and this house and location is by far our favorite. Our two kids each brought a friend the house was perfect for the 6 of us! The home has everything you need - we stayed for 2 weeks it was perfect! The location is centrally located so it's so easy to access every part of the island from the home. Being able to go to Lamberts Cove beach is a bonus. We walked the bike path right near the home daily and our boys loved being able to access it so easily. Steve was awesome right from the beginning. Communication was quick and often. The information we received prior to arrival was extremely helpful. We would highly recommend Steve's home for anyone looking for a relaxing centrally located rental! We can't wait to come back next year! show more show less

    Fantastic Vacation Home

    This roomy home had everything for a relaxing beach vacation ~ bikes, beach chairs, beach cart, outdoor shower, sunroom and deck. The expansive island bike path is only one house away. Loved the grill and definitely needed the washer and dryer! There are 4 spacious bedrooms with dressers and plenty of closet space. We definitely needed the ACs this July. Also, great recommendation to stop in at Chilmark Pottery. Book your vacation early as this home fills up quickly. Thank you Steve for providing the perfect place! show more show less

    Great house

    If you wish to have a Peaceful stay in a home surrounded by nature this is it

    The owner has many good books, bikes, ventilation and openness around the home permitting you to use his Binoculars to watch a wide variety of birds.

    In a short 200 yards you can enter paved pathways to bike on to many parts of the island.

    A great time on the Vineyard

    We were a crew of 4 adults and 4 kids. Steve's setup is great for two families. Our kids shared downstairs rooms and adults had spacious rooms upstairs.

    The deck is cozy and the kids had plenty of outdoor space to goof off. It's great being so close to the bike path as well. Steve is a gracious, kind, and helpful host.

    Spacious Home for a MV Vacation Getaway

    Our family enjoyed staying at this rental for a week long getaway. Steve, the owner, was very helpful and answered our questions in a timely manner as we prepared for our vacation. The home was spacious (especially the upstairs bedrooms), clean, and comfortable. It was nice to have access to the three bikes, outdoor shower, and washer and dryer. Wifi was easily accessible. The Black Dog Cafe and Cronigs Market were a short drive away. In addition, Vineyard Haven was an easy drive. Overall, we had a very good stay. show more show less

    Wonderful Stay!

    We had a lovely time at this property. There were some medical issues with our vacation, which I don't need to go into here, but I do want to say that Steve, the owner, truly went above and beyond the call of duty to help us and make sure our stay was a pleasant one. He really did save our vacation.

    Beyond that, the house is well-appointed and good for kids. There's a fun hammock and yard, and nice outdoor seating. It's bikable to Lambert's Cove, or about a ten minute drive. We liked staying near Vineyard Haven, which is a fun little town and less populated/touristy than Oak Bluffs or Edgartown.

    We recommend this house very much!

    Rent this lovely, clean, spacious, comfortable, private and centrally located house!

    This lovely house is exactly as advertised – clean, spacious, comfortable, private and centrally located. Recently updated with beautiful hardwood flooring, the house is homey without being pretentious. There were 5 adults in our group and we were very comfortable there. We did choose the muggiest week of the summer to visit MV but numerous fans and plentiful windows kept us comfortable. The outdoor shower was a great place to rinse off and cool down after a busy day.

    Steve is a conscientious owner who made the rental process easy and seamless, and who was always accessible if we needed him. He’s a wealth of knowledge about the island, activities and events and is generous with his advice. There is a collection of brochures, maps and guides at the house to help you plan your trip, and its location in the center of the island was close to anywhere we wanted to go.

    We loved being next to the hiking/biking trail, which we used daily. We used two of Steve’s bikes, which he generously lets renters use. Per his suggestion, we also got a beach pass to Lambert’s Cove and used it three days. There’s something magical about walking down the wooded path to this gem of a beach that never got overly crowded. The deck was our favorite place to hang out in the late afternoon/early evening. The new grill is ideal for burgers, lobster tails, corn on the cob or whatever you bring home from the market.

    The stereo system is top notch and there’s a diverse collection of CDs to listen to. Steve’s detailed instructions for the TV, stereo, and DVD player are super helpful. The house comes with wi-fi so you’re never unconnected if you don’t want to be, and there are a good number of books to keep you occupied if you’re stuck inside because of weather. Regrettably we never had a chance to use the pool table.

    Finally, the beds were super comfortable, and the rooms were spacious with loads of closet and drawer space. Seating in each bedroom gave everyone space to relax in private if we chose to. Two people in our group had to put in a few hours of work and had no problem finding a quiet, connected place in the house to do so.

    We won't hesitate to recommend this property for your next vacation on the Vineyard!

    Owner Response:

    Terri, It was a pleasure to share our home with you. Every year we make improvements. Last year it was new hardwood floors throughout the house. In June, cutting back the trees to open up the backyard, new lounge chair for the living room, high end dehumidifier in the basement, and a tile floor in the sunroom. In 2019 we are adding air conditioning units to the two upstairs master bedrooms.

    Enjoyable Week!

    Convenient location to all island points. Works well to accommodate different age groups of family members. A short ride to our favorite beach - Long Point, as well as the Farmer's Market, Cronig's and Vineyard Haven. The home is spacious and allows for everyone to relax comfortably. The homeowner was very attentive to our questions and checked in with us during our stay to make sure we were comfortable.

    We love this peaceful, secluded getaway

    Our TOP TEN, it's our go-to rental the past two summers:

    1. Rent a kayak or stand up paddleboard at 600+ acre Trustees of Reservations Long Point wildlife refuge beach to tour endless Long Cove Pond ideal for kids, and bring your boogie board for the surf on the ocean side.
    2. Linger at beautiful Lamberts Cove beach, never overly crowded, perhaps the best family beach on the island. Bring a picnic and come back to watch the sunset without Menemsha’s evening crowds.
    3. A ten mile newly paved trail circumvents the state forest right in back of the house. Bike trails extend all the way to Edgartown. three bikes to use at the house.

    4. Having two master bedrooms upstairs allows us to bring our two girls and add another couple and their one-two kids to make the rental very affordable.

    5. In an era where work intervenes, you can always find a quiet spot to get it done quickly in any room & get back to having fun.

    6. Peace and quiet – birds, bunnies, crickets, fireflies - at the end of a country road during the height of the busy summer season.

    7. West Tisbury is our favorite town – central location, best beaches, best library, Sat. farmers market, Icehouse & Seth’s ponds for the kids, Scottish bakehouse for breakfast, go fancy at State Road restaurant, hike Cedar Tree Neck reservation, yoga classes at the Yoga Barn, horse rides at Arrowhead farms.

    8. The owner is attentive - checks in to make sure we’re settled on arrival ask for feedback when we leave & acts on good suggestions. In 2018 he added new hardwood floors everywhere, new grill, some new furniture. In 2019 he’s adding air conditioners to the upstairs master bedrooms.

    9. Our primary needs are met – wi-fi, cable/HD 50 inch TV, comfortable beds, grill, outdoor shower, 3 bikes, pool table, plenty of cookware, and the central location means 20 minutes to Circuit Ave/Oak Bluffs, Aquinnah Cliffs, Menemsha sunsets, downtown Edgartown & being up-island means less summer traffic. Ten minutes to Lamberts Cove/Seths Pond. 15 to Long Point.

    10. The house has an audiophile quality stereo system which opens your ears up to sounds you didn’t know were there.

    Vacation week in Martha's Vineyard

    We had a great time in MV July 4th week. The house has 4 bedrooms and had three very important criteria for my family (1) access to Lambert's Cove Beach with a weekly pass purchased at city hall (2) the beds were very comfortable (3) an outdoor shower. We were also very lucky to get fantastic weather. We enjoyed biking on the path right near the house. The house had all of the essentials and the owner was very receptive to feedback on the items to add (more grill utensils, bike helmets, better beach chairs-nothing critical) . The house was clean and the owner was responsive to questions but not in our face. He was easy to get along with. Since we had great weather we went to a different beach every day- Long Point, Chappy, Lambert's Cove, Oak Bluffs/Edgartown border beach, Menemsha- but we went to Lambert's Cove the most The house sleeps up to 8 people and has 2 bathrooms so its big enough for 1 or 2 families-the fourth bedroom only has 1 bed but we brought our own air mattress (and the house has its own mattress)- which we wound up not needing. It has a large step up to get in, so i would not recommend it for someone with little kids or disabilities-but we liked that 2 bedrooms were upstairs and 2 were downstairs. We will definitely try to rent it again next summer. show more show less

    After years visiting the island to stay a weekend at the Youth Hostel, 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 enjoyed spending time there. 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.
