Its actually funny, the photos do not do justice of the house. Beyond the indescribable deck on the house- the house has so much character and is lovely to stay in. Thank you for the wonderful vacation property.
Beautiful place to stay in Menemsha!
The pictures of this house do not do it justice! It is a quintessential Menemsha cottage that is very well equipped, spotless, and has a view a Menemsha Harbor and the Vineyard Sound that is gorgeous. The sunsets at night are unbelievable! The home owner is a pleasure to work with and very responsive. We will be back!
Wendy, many thanks for the kind words! We always say the old house loves to be loved.
This home had everythng we needed. The owner was readily available and a great resource for any questions we had! Thank you for a wonderful place in which to make memories during our first trip to the Vineyard!!
We picked Martha's Vineyard for our honeymoon destination for the last week of October. We were looking for a gorgeous spot that would be quiet and a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of our every day, and we found it! This cottage was the perfect place for us to land while we explored as much of the island as we could. The house sits in the best spot for sunset each night, and has an easy walk down to the beach. We loved coming in October because it was so quiet and perfect in the fall, although we will definitely come in warmer weather so we can enjoy the beach for more than walks! The house was very well equipped- the kitchen had anything we could need for cooking, there were plenty of sheets, blankets, and towels. The stars were incredible at night. This cottage was super cozy with a fire. The Wice Family also provided access to their bikes and beach equipment, although we didn't have a chance to use them this time! They were also very easy to communicate with throughout the rental process, and encouraged us to reach out with any questions. We will definitely make our way back, next time with friends or family!
Tranquility with a wonderful ocean view
A unique experience in a cookie cutter world. A step back in time. A real home away from home & it's owner is extremely hospitable & helps in any way he can to make your stay top notch. We couldn't wait to return to the house after our daily exploration of the island. The house is tucked away on a narrow curving lane. Expansive windows on the ocean side give you ocean views & plenty of natural light from anywhere in the living area of the house. Large porch with 2 lounge chairs & table, unobstructed views of the coastline(although there are houses nearby they are invisible because of the thick foliage. This was our favorite place to read, unwind & have an afternoon cocktail(gorgeous sunsets!) Kitchen is well equipped & clean but note there is no microwave. FAVORITE MEMORIES--Open windows at night. Lulled to sleep with the sound of ocean, the dong of the buoy & occasional fog horn. Picking up dinner at Larsens Fish Market in Menemsha village & walking along deserted beach with Shannon(our dog). Path to beach behind house or drive there in 5 mins. We also took Shannon on walks along the lane. Very rarely did we see anyone. Middle Road-Pastoral drive with changing fall colors and stone walls transported us back to Britain & Ireland. Granary Gallery-Surprise was the quality of the art. Even if you're not buying worth seeing. Black Dog Shop-we couldn't resist buying a few souvenirs
Only one criticism-Size & positioning of TV for viewing.
A Delightful Home with Dazzling Views
Nicely nestled in the woods with stunning views from every room and a spectacular sunset deck that will knock your flip flops off, you will find it very difficult to ever venture far from this impeccably finished homestead. It’s hard to imagine a more idyllic location or a more charming and tasteful “back to basics“ island cottage - replete with outdoor shower. Hit the trail and stroll down to the beach for an afternoon swim or hop on a bike and pedal down the road to Menemsha for seafood right off the boat. Fine restaurants, general stores, the farmers market - everything is within easy reach. With hosts who attend to every detail, we hope to visit again for a third year!
