Simple, Sunlit and Special
It’s rare that a place is just what you hoped it would be but better. The cottage is small but not at all cramped, has everything you need and nothing you don’t need, and the rooms are full of light. The owner is from an old Martha’s Vineyard family and was immediately responsive to questions and requests. If you are a certain kind of person, this is a wonderful place—rustic and real, not chic and sleek. We loved it.
I am an Islander yet I had never stayed “Up Island”. This cottage was rustic, charming and perfect!
Absolutely wonderful! A quiet, peaceful, beautiful place! We loved listening to the buoy bells and the gills as we fell asleep; we cherished the evening sunsets from our dining table; we were appreciative of a two minute walk to the market for fresh fish. This stay could not have been better!
In town oasis
A lovely older home perfectly located near the beach, sunsets, and best fish market on the island. The owner Barbara was responsive and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
Thank you. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
We get it!
My husband and I recently rented this cottage to fish the derby it was perfect for us. Just a short stroll to the beach, jetties, fish markets and The Bite. Barbara and John are the perfect host! I made a new best friend their Lab Maggie! If you are looking for a laid back vacation cottage this one is for you. If you do venture out The Atlantic Seafood and Steak Restaurant in Edgartown has some great food try their calamari fries.
Thank you. We loved having you both. We look forward to seeing you again...as does Maggie.
