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

We loved this beautiful & spacious Edgartown home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this gorgeous Edgartown home. It has many of the traditional features in a classic Edgartown house with the desired updates of modern kitchen, central air, large front porch, beautifully landscaped gardens and lawn. The outdoor shower is marvelous!! We were a group of 8 and had more than enough room for relaxing in or outside. Easy walking distance to charming downtown. We contacted the owner just once for a minor problem (trash pick-up) and she took care of it right away. We appreciated that!

The Perfect House for The Perfect Vaction

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic vacation and the home we stayed in made the experience even more enjoyable. We had everything we needed and the accommodations were outstanding. The location of the property makes access to the beaches and shops very convenient. Once in the home, we found it to be thoroughly cleaned and very organized. We had plenty of kitchen supplies, linens and space to accommodate our large family. Our kids had their own place to hang out and spent plenty of time playing ping pong in the basement. The owner was so prepared, we even found jumper cables in the shed that came in handy when one of cars had a battery drain! I can't enough about this home, the meticulous way it's cared for and the responsiveness of the owner. We have plans to come back next year and for years to come!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were three couples that recanted this very lovely house on a weekend to attend a wedding. We each had our own bedroom and bath. Enjoyed time in the big eat in kitchen and family room. We were able to walk to town and go all over on foot. To go to the beaches we needed a car but it's a great house near everything.

Great Home, Great Location, Great Owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sheila's home in Edgartown for three nights with our extended family from Germany. Pre and post trip communication was clear and concise. The home is conveniently located on the Main Street into Edgartown. Clean, well cared for and well equipped, the home comfortably accommodates 8-10 people, with extra space and privacy provided in the guest house. Groceries and several restaurants are within walking distance. Several beaches and Edgartown are 5-15 mins. by bike. I would recommend the home for any large family or group who wants to relax on the porch or patio, grill some fresh fish, and enjoy a bottle of wine while the kids entertain themselves with the toys in the shed or run down to the DQ for a soft serve. Island living at its best!

Lovely Home Close to the Heart of Edgartown

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister, niece and I enjoyed staying in this charming home during our first visit to Martha's Vineyard. Located on Main Street, it is a short walk to downtown Edgartown for dinner, ice cream, catching the ferry to Chappaquidick, or just strolling the streets to look at the historic homes and churches. Both the home and nicely landscaped yard are impeccably maintained and served as a comfortable and welcome retreat after a day's adventures. On the last night of our visit we had lobsters boiled at the seafood store right across the street and then walked along South Beach until sunset.

Great family home in great location!!

  • 5 of 5

I went to MV for a wedding that was in edgartown and the location was PERFECT! Walking distance to everything with fish market across street and several grocery stores nearby. The house itself was also very large and comfortable to accommodate our whole family. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a nice meal. There were also great things in the shed to help with downtime (bike, bags, toys for kids). Homeowner was very responsive to any queries we had. Would definitely rent the house again in a second!
