About Joanne Lachowitz
Recently Retired Professional couple enjoying life, family and 8 grandchildren. After renting and vacationing in our Katama rental house on Martha's Vineyard for nearly 20 years, we decided to purchase a home in Hidden Cove and moved to Martha's Vineyard as full time residents in 2002. We sold the Katama vacation house to our children and managed it for 10 years, only to became full time owners again in 2012. The house is ideal for vacationing couples and families who want to experience and enjoy this beautiful island. The house is meticulously maintained and well equipped. We hope you will come and enjoy the Vineyard while renting our little house.
Joanne Lachowitz purchased this House in 1982
Why Joanne Lachowitz chose Katama
Conveniently located (1.5mi.) to center of Edgartown, (1.8mi.) to South Beach -great surf, (1mi) to Edgartown Great Pond -great for small motor craft, kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, and clamming. Overall a pleasant location to walk, jog or bike to town, beach, pond, farm stand, library etc.

End of summer getaway
We had a great time staying in this roomy property. Plenty of space for our family of 4. We had everything we needed from towels to beach chairs, as well as kitchen items when eating in. The location is perfect! Short drive to the beach and downtown Edgartown. Would recommend!!!
Great Location in Katama
This is a very nice home in Katama section of Edgartown. The landlord, Joanne, is wonderful to work with. She leaves a welcome basket with treats which is a nice touch. The condition is very good with just about everything you need already stocked like beach chairs, umbrellas and kitchen items. The home can be configured in different ways by putting the beds together in the downstairs bedrooms to make king beds. There is an outdoor shower which is great for getting the sand off.
The location is the best part. The home is below the dreaded traffic-filled triangle and is easy bike ride or drive to South Beach with its large waves and beautiful sandy beach. For younger kids State Beach maybe a better choice with smaller waves and a little warmer water. The house is near Edgartown with its shops and restaurants. The home is close to Wilson’s Landing which makes a great morning walk to Great Edgartown Pond.
You should book early. Homes in this area move quickly.
Quaint cottage in the heart of edgartown!
My parents and husband rented this cute Martha’s getaway for the Fourth of July weekend and it was PERFECT! We were a bike ride away from oak bluffs,a quick Uber to beautiful beaches and walking distance to the darling downtown of Edgartown. Joanne was so accommodating and extremely responsive to concerns via text, phone calls and emails prior to our arrival. She even helped with planning our weekend away since we were unfamiliar with the area. When we arrived we found a welcome basket stocked with great snacks to tide us over prior to heading to the nearby grocery store, where we stocked up on groceries. It was great having a full kitchen and grill to enjoy some meals at home! If you are considering a stay on the island don’t hesitate to chose this listing, you will not be disappointed!!
The house was very clean and well-appointed. We had everything we needed. Joanne is incredibly accommodating and welcoming! We had a wonderful stay!
We have visited the Vineyard many times in the fall, but this was the latest we have ever come. It was absolutely beautiful! We had some rain but overall it was great! The cool weather was refreshing coming from Louisiana. Our property rental was comfortable and cozy. Joanne was super accommodating and provided everything we needed. The delicious welcome basket was greatly appreciated. If planning a visit to the vineyard don't hesitate booking Joanne's property.
Thank you Kathy and Bill. So happy you enjoyed my rental house and Martha's Vineyard.
Comfortable, convenient and exceptionally priced.
An excellent home with 3 bdrms and 2 baths plus the outside shower. Our Fall week was warm and sunny. The wrap around deck was made for sitting in the sun! The house was extremely clean and well appointed. Joanne was wonderful to work with from our first email right through to the end of our stay. I like the fact that she is on island should we have any concerns.(Of which there were none).Her welcome basket was an unexpected treat! Having vacationed numerous times on MV we found this house was ideal for us (4 adults). Conveniently located near friends, some might take issue with the nearness of the town property. We had no problems. There was no noise or vehicles. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to returning ourselves. Thanks again to Joanne.
