Needed a good cleaning and updating

  • 2 of 5

When we opened the door at the start of the lease and were immediately overwhelmed with a strong musty mildewed smell that permeated the entire house. We opened all the windows daily but to no avail as the problem had thoroughly permeated the home and furnishings. Most of the indoor seating was covered with loose fitting throws which could have been part of the problem The outdoor dinning table's vinyl coating was delaminating around the entire circumfrence. and should have been repaired or replaced Neighborhood was quite pleasant and distance to the beach and Edgartown was as advertised.

Owner's Response: To say I feel terrible for Mr. Hunter's experience would be an understatement. This review is the first one that I have recieved from Homeaway that has been anything but complementry.However I did spaek to Mr. Hunter one or two days into his week and nothing was said to me regarding the issues raised in his review. I have also checked with our caretaker who lives in the same area as the house and she informed me she was not contacted about these issues. Additionally I contacted our cleaning service, who informed me that the island this summer was experiencing more than normal rain days which could have contributed to the Hunter's concerns and it was not uncommon in many of the homes they clean. That said and ever mindful of the reviews posted I have installed a dehumidifier and will be replacing the outdoor table. I do believe that our primary concern is that our guests have a pleasant experience while staying at the house. A review of past guests comments certainly show that we provide clean home and that we try to be respnsive to our guests along with doing what we can so their experience is truly an enjoyable one.

Home away from Home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very lovely stay at the Austin House. The house was not far from South Beach, one of our favorite beaches on the island and close to Edgartown center. We had a car so it was easy to visit neighboring towns for the sunset and the carousel, a must for our 3 year old! If we had rented bikes, we could have biked into town easily. The property had all the amenities we needed and there was ample space to lounge around. There was a television in every gathering room and cable. Typically, we do a lot of cooking when we rent a home but on this trip we ate out most nights. The house is wonderful for lounging around and enjoying meals in the breezeway! It is situated far enough from town to enjoy the crickets and near a nice walking trail which was nice for early morning walks. I would highly recommend staying here if you want to get away from the summer crowds, but want to be within minutes of Main Street. Most importantly, the owner was very friendly and accommodating. If our vacation crew does not grow, we would stay here again.

Great vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

The home is perfect for a family vacation. Well maintained and all the amenities were as listed. Close to town and the beaches, which was very convenient. The owner, Tom Austin, was very helpful and easy to contact with any questions during the rental process.

Lovely Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family rented this home for Thanksgiving. It was a clean and cozy rental that fit visiting relatives for the holiday for an affordable price given the location and neighborhood. We enjoyed many walks to Morning Glory, and the short distances to the bike path, South Beach, and downtown we very convenient.

edgartown getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a great neighborhood. The tennis courts are in good shape and we played almost everyday. 5 minute drive to downtown edgartown and south beach was very convenient. We had a blast biking around on the bike trails and the weather was great.

The Owner is a very nice guy. I would recommend this place to anyone, might rent again myself next year. Thanks
