It is conveniently located just one mile from downtown Vineyard Haven... yet it is in a very private setting abutting 8+ acres of conservation land. Just beyond the property is a mile long walking trail through undeveloped woodlands of oaks, pitch pines and huckleberries.
The interior of the house was completed in 2013 and consists of a bright and airy open living area with cathedral ceiling, skylights, air conditioning plus ceiling fan. There is also radiant heat throughout the house and a fireplace in the living room.
The state-of-the-art, fully appointed kitchen has a large island workstation, granite countertops and Jenn-Air stainless appliances. Home is tastefully decorated throughout with a mix of antique and modern furnishings as well as oriental rugs and original artwork.

The second bedroom has a queen bed, 2 sets of sliders and a private bath while the third bedroom has twin bunk beds and a full bath adjacent to it.
The lower level is a finished walk-out basement with a TV sitting area with sectional sofa that includes a full size sleeper. There is also a fourth full bath with shower and washer/dryer.
The exterior includes a large wrap-around deck in back which is ideal for dining or entertaining. Off the master bedroom suite is a private deck with sitting area and outside the lower level is a patio area with additional seating. There is also an outdoor shower in back and professionally landscaped gardens in front.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay in mid-September at Lisa and Ivory's exceptional home in the Vineyard Haven area. Located just a little over a mile from the down-town area of VH, and an easy walk through a beautifully wooded area, the wonderfully appointed house offers everything a family (or families) could want for a comfortable visit to the island. Lisa and Ivory were the most gracious hosts we've ever rented from, giving us not only a personal review of the facilities but also of the vast opportunities for recreation and pleasure in the area. And they provided more travel-related info than we could possibly digest, including recommendations for the best restaurants, great sight-seeing and shopping opportunities, and a feel for the diverse areas of the Vineyard.
Two of our favorite locations on the Island were the Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary and Lambert's Cove beach. Biking opportunities abound, and there are limitless beach areas for long, relaxing walks. And some of the most spectacular sunsets you'll ever see.
This is our second year staying in Lisa & Ivory's lovely home. Rather than feeling like an anonymous rental, Lisa goes out of the way to make you feel like you are staying with friends by leaving fresh flowers, a book chock-full of activity ideas, and checking in on you by text to be sure you have everything you need. It makes your experience on the island so much richer than dealing with a faceless rental agency. The house itself is airy and comfortable, with everything you could possibly need from lots of beach towels to a well-appointed kitchen. We can't wait to come back!
Enjoyed our stay very much, had many wonderful meals on the deck, surrounded by greenery. It's an easy drive to the beach as well as town -- all within 10 mins or less. A good fish market is about 5 mins away. The property is quiet, with a secluded feel. The interior is spacious, modern, bright. In sum, a great stay in a great house.
I have traveled all over and stayed at lots of VRBO homes, I even rent out some of my own. This by far was the best rental I have ever booked. Lisa was the best, communicating with me every step of the way before, during and after my stay. I booked with two other bridesmaids and the house was so clean, comfortable and beautiful the bride decided to get ready there. It was so relaxing with the deck overlooking the woods and we ended up grilling and cooking almost all our meals at the house. An exceptional getaway, the only place I will rent from now on on the Vineyard.
What a lovely home and amazing hosts. Lisa was the absolute best - communicating from booking, through our stay, and following up after we returned home. She surprised us with a bottle of wine for our anniversary and took great care to make sure we were warm as we arrived the first "cool" day in October. The house is spacious yet cozy. The wood-burning fire place was lovely and the access to deck on the back numerous- one afternoon we opened all of the doors and enjoyed the slight breeze, sounds of nature and gorgeous foliage. Great for a couple in the fall to enjoy a quiet dinner in (that was us) or several families who are looking to explore the trails out back. A MUST RENT!
25 years of renting on the Vineyard has fine-tuned what we require. Quiet, well-taken care of and spread out for privacy of guests. We will be renting for 2 weeks next summer. If you are interested in a place that is close to Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs whose owners have thought through and are responsible and responsive this is the right place. Great Kitchen to cook in. We're looking forward to having guests join us. Maybe even our adult children too, you know if they can squeeze us into their schedules. ;)
