House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
We are both Bostonians and grew up summering with our families on Marthas Vineyard. We live in California now and can't use the house as often as we would like, so we decided to put it in the rental market during the weeks we can not be there. It has been furnished and cared for as a family home not a rental.

Family vacation in MV
Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The home was beautiful and clean. More than enough space for family of five. Would definitely recommend!
Just the right amount of privacy without feeling isolated-short, quiet, beautiful walk to a wonderful beach and <15 minute drive to food and ‘civilization’. Well-equipped kitchen, multiple comfy seating areas, perfect bedroom setup. The gorgeous photos don’t do this justice.
Don't rent this house (please!)
Truth be told, I was conflicted about writing a review for this house...torn between wanting to sing the property's praises and (selfishly) not wanting the word to spread so much that it would make it more difficult to rent in the future! The best way to describe the house is: it's a home...permanent, lived in, cared for, comfortable. Rather than feeling like a beach rental, it feels as though you are staying at a friend's house who just happens to be away while you're there. It's nicely decorated and well stocked as if the owners spend much of their time there (thankfully for us, they don't) and will be back any minute. From the breezy open plan living room / dining / kitchen, to the sunny deck overlooking Vineyard Sound, to the cozy family room (perfect for binge watching Netfilx on a rainy day), it's a great house in which to spend your time on the Vineyard when you're not out experiencing all that the island has to offer. The four bedrooms on the lower level (including two master bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms) are comfortable and quiet with direct access to the yard and outdoor shower. Like the house, the grounds are lovely and well tended and offer a nice spot to sit and enjoy the sunset. The location in the Lower Makonikey neighborhood of West Tisbury is easily accessible to Vineyard Haven but as you drive down the gravel road to the house, you feel miles away...the best of "up island" living close to town. The quiet north shore beach is an easy 5 minute walk from the house and Lambert's Cove beach (perfect for kids) is minutes away down the road by car. So if you must rent this house, please just don't stay too long and make it harder for us!
My family and I have been coming to this great place for three years - we spent a lot of years looking for the perfect place for us with our three young children, and this is it. The house has everything we love - great deck, modern ammenities, beach close by, washer/dryer and a great view. The yard is expansive and really feels like you are away from all the disctractions of everyday life. We can't wait to go back.
We love this house
This is an amazing house to rent. We are going back for our third summer this year. The house is immaculate and fully stocked. The furnishings are perfect for adults and kids. And the grounds are gorgeous. We find ourselves outside in the yard a lot as it is so peaceful and quiet. The house is secluded but not isolated. You feel private but not alone. The beach is walkable, even for little ones and we spend most of our time swimming in the gentle waters. The house is close enough to stores and cafés, so it is an easy place to stay. There is an on-Island manager so if you need assistance, it is local. In sum, our family just loves the house and we hope to be here many more years. We have been coming to the Vineyard for 35 summers and this house is our favorite.
