About Pamela Leigh Hamilton

Originally I'm from Long Island, New York. Went to school in Boston and worked in broadcasting for a number of years which enabled me to live in various cities. Now I live in the Washington DC area but my heart will always call Martha's Vineyard home.

Pamela Leigh Hamilton purchased this cottage in 1967

Why Pamela Leigh Hamilton chose Oak Bluffs

My family started spending summers on the Vineyard in 1961 when my sister and I were just little girls. We rented until my father bought the perfect home on Farm Pond in 1967. It didn't look like much then but the view was spectacular.

In the mid 80's the tiny house was transformed to a cozy home with 3 decks where we watched the sunrise over Nantucket Sound, Farm Pond's wildlife and a starry night. My father bought a rowboat to so he can spend time on the pond.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is a perfect for families, couples or a small group of friends and everything is in walking distance. Children can ride their bikes to town for ice cream or to ride the Flying Horses, the oldest merry-go-round in the country. Tennis and Basketball courts and a playground for toddlers are nearby. You can walk to the beach or stroll to town to meet friends for dinner. If you want a quiet night at home the upper deck is the perfect place for a glass of wine and mellow music.

Such a lovely view!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is exactly as pictured, and was wonderfully convenient to all that we did during our stay. Things always seem more relaxing when you are within view of water, and only a 5-minute walk from a beach!

Pamela was a terrific communicator once we sorted through some technical difficulty with the website. We hated to bother her, but she responded immediately when the TV/internet service was disrupted.

While the cottage is showing the wear of being in salt air, it has a well furnished kitchen and was all that we needed for our week on MV. We would happily stay there again.

Wonderful, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation at this home on farm pond. The location is perfect for walking into Oak Bluffs, but also for exploring all of Martha's Vineyard. The house was very comfortable and well-appointed. Just perfect for myself, my husband and our 2 teenage daughters. Leigh was a pleasure to work with and we will definitely rent from her again!

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our three daughters had our first visit to Martha's Vineyard. Not knowing where a good place to stay was, it was very helpful to have the owner call me immediately upon my request for the house. She was very informative and I felt like I was making a good choice about the location of the house. The house was adorable and had everything you can imagine. It was really helpful to have the beach chairs and cooler to use! Our favorite part of the house was the fact that the upstairs bedroom had its own deck to overlook the pond and sound. It was beautiful and very private. Our girls had their rooms downstairs and we had ours upstairs. It was perfect. We brought our bikes and really enjoyed biking down to the beach with the "jaws" bridge you can jump off of. The ride was gorgeous with water on both sides of the road. My girls were able to walk to town to get an ice cream etc. and we could walk to get a drink or dinner. House was very clean, great location, and tons of extras. We would definitely stay there again! Loved it!

Perfect Location, Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults and a 5 year old and 9 year old) loved this house so very, very much! The view out over Farm Pond to the ocean is beautiful. This house worked even when it rained for a couple days. Our favorite things: Awesome family room/kitchen combo room, plenty of private space as well (three bedrooms), two full bathrooms, the 3 decks are just so lovely, comfy furnishings, great location -- walk to town, walk to Inkwell beach, bike path to Edgartown starts at the end of the road. It's just perfect. If I could buy a vacation home, this would be it :) The owner was so very kind and easy to work with. We'll be back!

Great location! Great owner!

  • 5 of 5

As someone who has visited the Vineyard for decades, this home has to be in the best location I have ever stayed in. Beautiful water views of Farm Pond and Nantucket Sound. Easy walk into town and the beach. The owner is very friendly, thoughtful and responsive. The house is cute, intimate and clean. Great for a family or couple. It's in a quiet location but there are nearby activities so you don't feel isolated. I strongly recommend this wonderful home!

Absolutely PERFECT house and location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 2 year old son spent a week at this amazing house in June. Let me break down our trip in areas for the skim readers out there.


Amazing. Easy 5 minute walk to Oak Bluffs main town center. 1 minute walk to the beach. Views of the water are fantastic from all areas of the home. The home feels isolated with no homes in front of the house so it definitely feels private which is nice. The ducks come up to the front lawn in the mornings and evenings which is fun for kids to watch too.


Very clean and well maintained. Great size with the bedrooms both upstairs and downstairs tucked away from the main kitchen and living area so it was easy to still hang out and not disturb anyone sleeping. The kitchen has everything you need cooking/eating wise. It even has standard spices, ziploc bags, tupperware, etc. so it was really nice not having to bring or go buy the little stuff you don't think of bringing.


Couldn't have possibly been nicer. Great communication about the house personally calling me within an hour of leaving a voicemail on a Sunday and was happy to answer all my questions and was enthusiastic to share her home with us and happy for us to be enjoying the island for the first time. She makes you feel like your renting the home from a friend instead of an impersonal hotel or stranger. She was even nice enough to search for an item we left at the house a few weeks later and mail it back to us on her own time and expense.


Amazing time in MV. Can't wait to come back. Perfect house for people wanting to be by water and enjoy the decks, close enough to walk to town, close enough to other areas of the island like Edgartown or Vineyard Haven, and secluded enough to not be vacationing on top of other people.

We hope you'll love this house as much as we did!!!
