About Barry & Roberta Finkelstein

We have been coming to the Vineyard for decades and have loved it in every season. We have family on the Island, and as their families and ours expanded we decided we needed our own home.

Barry & Roberta Finkelstein purchased this house in 1998

Why Barry & Roberta Finkelstein chose Martha's Vineyard

We loved the fact that it is on a quiet street with lots of trees. It is close enough to walk into town but far enough to be a true retreat. There is lots of natural light, and the open floor plan upstairs makes it family friendly and great for entertaining.

What makes this house unique

Because we spend so much time here ourselves we keep the home in great condition. It is well maintained, frequently updated, and furnished for comfort. We've done lots of work over the past year or so: fresh paint and new colors inside, new windows and window treatments, mattresses, upgraded bathroom, kitchen, and upstairs floors.

As you can see from our photo we love animals and wanted to make this property pet friendly for our renters as well

Great relaxing well maintained home with plenty of room for families.

  • 4 of 5

Great rental experience. Very smooth rental process with owner Barry. House was very clean with a great deck for relaxing. Easy walking access to Vineyard Haven (15 min) and short drive (10 min) to Oak Bluffs with several good restaurants and shops. Will definitely return.

Best house!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. Everything is updated (Kitchen, bathrooms, floors, doors, trim, etc.). The kitchen was fully stocked and the bedrooms were cozy. It was also very easy to walk to town (it only took 15 min to get to Main Street). Thanks for a wonderful stay.

great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Blue Hollow was a great spot for our stay on the island...centrally located, quiet and clean. The owner, Barry, was quick to respond and a pleasure to work with during the booking process. Would definitely stay here again if back on the island!

A perfect home nestled amongst trees

  • 5 of 5

My family of three and a colleague with a child had the absolute pleasure of staying here while we worked in Chilmark at The Yard. To be able to return to such a well lit and quite home after hours of dancing was heaven. The turkeys that came each morning while we drank cafe on the balcony added to the charm of such a wonderful home on such a unique island. The dirt paths to Tashmoo beach made us feel like true locals. Blue Hollow is also so close to the center of town that we could walk and ended up renting bikes to better blend in. I say if you want to relax and feel truly a part of Martha's Vineyard in a place where you are respected and away from the noise and bustle, this is the place. Thank you Barry and Roberta and I truly think you will be hearing from us again, this time for proper holidays!

Warmly,

sbb

Warm and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing week! We went to MV to visit my daughter's family and this was the perfect home for us. Besides being close to her house we were a three or four minute drive to the town and ferry dock, or a short walk to Lake Tashmoo for gunkholing. The house was bright and spacious with a large living area for social gathering or just relaxing on the couch. We felt very much at home.

Although we never met Barry and Roberta we chatted by email several times and would love to meet them sometime. The caretaker did come over to get the cable tv back online and we had a warm visit covering local history and life as a year-round resident.

Overall we had a very nice stay at Blue Hollow and would not hesitate to stay there again.
