Why Sharon Strimling chose Martha's Vineyard

This property is perfect for families and friends to rest, relax, and entertain in a stress free comfortable setting.

What makes this house unique

My favorite time to walk down to the lagoon (a 3 minute walk down a hill) is in the late afternoon when all the birds are flying low above the beach grasses, and lighting upon the pilings. The sun at that time of day is spectacular over the water. Walking out Hines Point (around the lagoon) is a total pleasure, and renting kayaks from there is as fun and peaceful as life gets. Of course, the short walk to town, the restaurants and shops is perfect any time of day, and is great for kids, as you can cut right through the playground and park on the way if you don't walk by the lagoon.

The house itself is one of the rare Vineyard homes that is elevated on hill, and the breezes through all the large windows are wonderful! The house is beautifully decorated and the furniture is meant for fully relaxing in comfort. The back porch is perfect for gathering and grilling, and the house as a whole is perfectly hospitable for entertaining dinner guests if you care to have company!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great week here at the island! Its been very relaxing and enjoyable. So glad we happened upon your sweet house instead of a hotel. This has been much more like home. Everything has gone very smoothly. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you again!

Our return trip to Hilltop Haven was even better than year's!

  • 5 of 5

Sharon and her team could not be more courteous, accommodating, and genuinely interested in ensuring we had an excellent stay. The home is spacious, comfortable, and perfect for our growing family. I can't recommend staying here highly enough, and we look forward to returning again.

We had a wonderful vacation in a wonderful home. It was very cozy and quite comfortable. I especially liked the front porch area where we played cards till all hours of the night.

best family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation staying at this property. This property offered us the space we needed for 5 adults and 2 children. We enjoyed the sunporch, the spacious deck, the big dining room table and the well equipped kitchen. The kitchen offered every appliance and utensil that you could think of. Sharon also offered beach chairs, beach towels, coolers and boogie boards for the kids to use at the beach. We definitely took advantage of the outdoor shower which was refreshing. We enjoyed grilling on the big grill and sitting on the huge deck. We used the grill many times. We were also offered the use of the herb garden which we did take advantage of (thank you) for our family chopped challenge cookoff. We were within walking distance to downtown, the lagoon and the beach. We did have quite a bit of traffic up the driveway starting the 1st day we arrived. There is a rental cottage that shares the space and there was a garage being renovated while we were there. We purposely chose a residential area for privacy and space (indoor and out). We didn't know if the visitors were visiting the other renters or the contractor but they never came to the house. We did have a conversation with Sharon concerning this but it would not deter us from staying here again. It is a wonderful place and she is a warm and receptive owner.

Wonderful Vineyard getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Hilltop Haven last week. We stayed there with our 2 kids (5 and 2), my sister, brother and his wife and son (4 year old). The house was well-equipped, stocked with essentials (and more), very clean, spacious, and a great location. We were minutes from a playground for the kids, which we went to everyday, and a short walk to downtown Vineyard Haven. We made a fire in the firepit for s'mores and grilled everyday. I recommend Hilltop Haven with no reservations. Sharon was extremely courteous and responsive. You won't regret staying here!

One of my favorite vacations!

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from a beautiful week at Hilltop Haven! The house is beautiful, well-equipped, comfortable and centrally located! It's just a short walk down to the shops on Main Street and to the waterfront, and the drives to Oak Bluffs and Edgartown are very manageable.

Sharon made it clear that we could contact her for anything that we needed, and she made us feel very welcome during our stay!

I would love to come back to Hilltop Haven next year!

Fall Splendour

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful gem, spacious, clean, with all the amenities. The best part was Sharon who was totally accessible and went over and beyond to make my 10th wedding anniversary surprise magical. She made this one of my most memorable trips to the vineyard......highly recommended rental.

This beautiful hilltop house is on a lovely residential street a short walk to town (Main Street in Vineyard Haven). You can walk either through a park and playground or along the lagoon to go into town, to restaurants or shops, or to the ferry.

To get to beaches from this house you can walk down the hill to the lagoon, where you can rent kayaks and paddle out. Or you can walk into town which is about 10 minutes through the park, and walk another 5 minutes to Owen Little Park which has a small beach, or about 5-10 more minutes to the public beach next to the yacht club.

There is also a more secluded beach a short drive away where Lake Tashmoo meets the ocean. It one of my favorites, down a beautiful dirt road with water on both sides. The lake side of the beach is dreamy peaceful and perfect for young children, and the ocean side is a perfect, small classic beach.

Martha's Vineyard is a beautiful island off of Cape Cod, in Massachusetts. Vineyard Haven is the primary port, with historic homes, lovely beaches, fabulous shopping and delicious restaurants. Our house is just outside the center of Vineyard Haven and the ferry.

You can see the house location on google maps at 141 Skiff Ave.
