About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This Vineyard Haven home underwent an extensive renovation in 2010. Located three blocks from the Yacht Club and the small public beach at Owen Little Way, this home is fully equipped for a relaxing Vineyard vacation.

The house is within walking distance to the town library, beach and harbor, as well as the shops, restaurants and galleries of downtown Vineyard Haven. It is truly an ideal location for enjoying all that the Vineyard has to offer. The towns of Oak Bluffs and Edgartown are nearby and beautiful Menemsha and Chilmark are only a short drive away. The scenic West Chop Lighthouse is within biking/walking distance.

The first floor is open and inviting, with a large living/family room and kitchen surrounded by windows. Meals can be served in the sunny dining room which seats 8. There is a half bath on this level.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms and two full baths. There are two queen bedrooms (one with en suite bathroom), one room with two twin beds and a room with a single twin bed. The hall bath has a bathtub with shower; the bathroom in the master bedroom has a shower.

The private backyard has an enclosed outdoor shower and a large shade tree. Patio furniture, a hammock and a Weber charcoal grill are available, as are beach chairs and sand toys. The washer and dryer are located in the basement.

No pets and no smoking please.

loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This house was impeccably clean, well kept, tastefully and simply furnished and decorated (including some charming wall art by very young and creative artists!) , located about one mile outside of the center of Vineyard Haven on a quiet street a couple blocks away from the shore. The owners thoughtfully provided so many nice touches (e.g. plenty of cheerful kid friendly plastic ware that seemed new, a good selection of spices in the kitchen, a basic first aid kit, dryer balls for the dryer, a fine array of toys, games and books for all ages, even arts and crafts supplies), and avoided that "touristy" feel of some rentals - the feel was that of staying at the beloved home of a friend who thinks of everything. The compact kitchen was well equipped with good quality tools and cookware. The back yard is large, grassy and private feeling. We shared the house with two adults and one three year old and felt we had plenty of space. We were without a car and so appreciated that linens and nice beach towels were included. Our one minor suggestion to the owners would be to add thermal/sun-blocking window shades for the upstairs bedrooms, which got hot during the day (although our week was uncharacteristically hot and still) - but the plentiful fans helped at night. The owners were responsive and super easy to work with. An excellent experience all the way around.

Owner's Response: Jane, thank you for your kind words and thoughtful review. We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Adding thermal shades upstairs is a great suggestion and something we will do before next summer.

Just a good time

The property is just as described, close to the beach and a short walk to town.

I absolutely loved this home away from home. The house is so comfortable and convenient. The short walk to the beach or to town was perfect. It was nice to be able to out and do things without needing to drive. It's nice to know I could visit without a car since the house is so close to the ferry. Although close to town, the house is on a nice quiet street - great to be able to escape from the crowds.

A Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Your home in Vineyard Haven provided the perfect retreat for me to get away and have the space to write and launch out on adventures. There is something very calming about the décor and the backyard was a great place to go out and just sit or swing in the hammock and look up at the sky. I felt very at home here and it was the perfect location from which to launch out to other destinations on the island. I was able to walk to town and the beach and to get my lobster rolls at Grace Church on Fridays. Although I was solo and had a ton of space I could see how great it would be to have a family or group of folks on the getaway. What I most enjoyed about my stay was your beautiful and wonderfully decorated home itself. The décor is soothing and simple, which I love. I also loved being so close to town so I could pop into Mocha Motts early every morning for my coffee! The house had everything I needed for a comfortable stay and you were great at answering my questions prior to my arrival.
