About Sheila Bresnehan

The Vineyard has always been a special place for our family, offering so many diverse and wonderful activities. Before purchasing we rented in Katama and realized you are going to drive to the beach anyway so why not be in town so you can walk to everything including a beach. As soon as you get on the ferry all your worries are gone and you are ready for a PVD (perfect Vineyard day). So many great memories have been created here. Now it's time you create yours.

Sheila Bresnehan purchased this house in 1999

Summer 2014 Great Vacation Spot (2nd year in row)

  • 5 out of 5
Wow! What a great place and twice the fun. Three families with four kids (age 7-11) have vacationed at this house for two years in a row and have had a great time. The house is very spacious and centrally located to all the dining, retail and entertainment venues in Edgartown. We never had to drive into town. Moreover, its unique location by the bike trails allowed us to cycle to Oak Bluffs and to Vineyard Haven with relative ease. The owner is very responsive and there are a lot of "extras" such as bicycles, beach boards, beach chairs, ping pong table etc. that make the trip enjoyable. It is as if the owner anticipated our needs and provided a lot of amenities. The house also has a "carriage" house that is a bonus room separate from the main house. Many of the adults found the "carriage" house to be a nice break from all the kid activity in the house and it is well appointed. The yard is spacious enough for kids and adults to enjoy separate play zones. And, we very much enjoyed sitting on the front porch.

After the first trip in 2013, we liked the property so much that the same three families rented the house again in 2014 August. While I've never wrote reviews before, I can attest that the property is exactly what you see, is very well appointed, and in a great location where you can quickly walk to Edgartown, take a short drive to South Beach, walk to the grocery store and rent bikes from across the street.

I wholeheartedly recommend this property and the next time we come back to Martha's Vineyard, we hope to rent this house a third time. I hope all the owners of properties on this site are as responsive and helpful as this owner. We had no complaints.

Great Home

  • 5 out of 5
My family of 5 stayed here this past July. We were walking distance to town. House was large enough to have guests and the guest house is adorable. Kitchen was large with many amenities. I would recommend this home for a vacation!

Perfect Vineyard Getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
I rented this home with 6 girlfriends for my best friends bachelorette party. The house was just as described -- spacious, clean, comfortable, and equipped with all necessary amenities. Like the interior of the house, the yard was spacious and well-kept, with plenty of options for outdoor seating and/or entertaining. The house was a short walk from downtown Edgartown (and the local grocery store), which was really convenient as we didn't need to worry about parking in town. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this home to anyone!

Dream Vineyard Accommodation!

  • 5 out of 5
We booked this house for a long girls' weekend at the beginning of the summer. The owner was constantly in contact and beyond helpful before our arrival which made us very comfortable with renting this house. I've stayed at properties that look great in pictures and are less than desirable in person, but this house did not disappoint and was BEAUTIFUL in person! Immaculately clean, up to date and comfortable.

The yard is perfect for grilling and sitting in the sun. The grocery store, ice cream shops and pizza are right around the corner. Less than a mile walk or short drive to Edgartown Center for restaurants and shopping, a 10/15 minute drive from the ferry and a quick few mile drive to South Beach. We couldn't have asked for a better location.

I will recommend this house to anyone traveling to the Vineyard and am definitely keeping it in mind for my future trips!

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
This was the perfect home for our family vacation. We stayed here during Christmas with our 4 adult sons from all parts of the country. The house was exactly as it was described on the website with everything we needed to make our Christmas warm and wonderful. Christmas dinner was a breeze with a kitchen that was fully equipped and a dining room that was perfect. The house was well cared for, very clean and comfortable.
It was a great location where our son's could go downtown in the evenings without worrying about driving.
The weather was warm enough that we were able to enjoy the front porch and we had some wonderful walks on the beach and terrific bike rides
This was our first time to the Island and we are already planning a trip back in the summer were we can enjoy the great outdoors of this house. You could see there were lots of gardens, a nice private patio and yard and as I said, the location was perfect. Our stay could not have been better.

Perfect House, Great Location

  • 5 out of 5
My friends and I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful house! I rented the house for a week with some friends to attend a wedding at Atria in Edgartown and it worked out perfectly! The location of the house was steps from the center of town and renting the house was a great way to turn a wedding weekend into a vacation week, especially for some who had to travel across country. The house was clean, comfortable, and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

There are many convenient wonderful activities within close proximity to our home. Walking to the many restaurants, shops and waterfront in downtown Edgartown is just a short stroll away. Enjoy fishing at Lighthouse beach or Memorial Dock, or bike rides to the ocean or sound beaches on the islands flat and expansive bike path. Enjoy the spectacular ride along Beach Road to Oak Bluffs where the children can ride the Carousel, or you can attend concerts at the Tabernacle, shop and/or enjoy dining and people watching overlooking the harbor at sunset. Afternoon trips to Aquinnah (Gay Head) and sunset dinners at Menemsha are easily accessible whether planned or impromptu. Upon returning, you have a quiet, peaceful retreat in a lovely garden setting.
