Guestbook comments from the owner

We so enjoyed staying in your lovely home. Thank you so much for your kindness & consideration when I had to leave the Island for a week & I was able to store my clothes & car here....especially since I had the casted broken wrist. Many, many thanks. Our family shared great times here on the Island this summer. Your house is cozy & warm & close to town & South Beach & Bike path. Perfect for us.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Went here for 4th of July vacation with my girlfriend (now fiance after proposing on the island) and her family. House had everything one would need and was well within walking distance of downtown Edgartown. Rooms were more than adequate for the family. Nothing but praise for this residence.

Perfect vineyard getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great choice for us. The house is beautiful, immaculately clean, and very comfortable. The location is unbeatable - secluded and quiet, but very close to everything! Across the street from Katama General Store, 10 min walk to Edgartown, grocery stores, quick bike ride to the beach, etc. Alex is a great host, and the house was perfectly appointed for a relaxing retreat. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone bringing their family to the Vineyard.
