Located in a pleasant residential neighborhood midway between the bustling down-island town centers of Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven, this well-appointed cottage accommodates a maximum of 4 guests, including infants and children, and is the perfect vacation escape! The home offers one-floor living with just a few steps to enter, 2 private bedrooms - each with its own closet, a full bathroom with a tub/shower combo, open concept kitchen, dining, and living spaces, a spacious front deck, a grassy open yard, and a 3-season back porch complete with an "outdoor" shower, well-appointed kitchen, and washer/dryer, the house has everything you need for a memorable stay on magical Martha's Vineyard. Amenities include standard electric kitchen appliances, dish ware, cutlery and cookware, a large flat screen Netflix-enabled tv with cable and a DVD player with a nice selection of DVDs, a variety of books, puzzles and games for all ages, washer/dryer, hair dryer, an iron and board, window air conditioners in season, thermostat-controlled electric baseboard heat when needed, and a gas grill. Please note that there is no dishwasher or garbage disposal. A few beach chairs and beach towels are available for your use, and a starter supply of paper goods, laundry, bath and dish soaps, shampoo & conditioner are also provided. Two bedrooms, one with a queen, the other with two twin beds, comfortably accommodate 4 people. Freshly laundered towels, sheets, pillowcases, comforters, and extra blankets and protective zippered cases for mattresses and pillows are provided. Bedroom #1 has one queen bed, a bureau and closet with clothes rod and full length mirror. Access to the enclosed 3-season porch is through a secure exterior door from this room. Bedroom #2 has two twin beds and a closet with clothes rod and hanging shelves. Kitchen, living, and dining areas may be closed off from the bedroom hallway, offering quiet and enhanced privacy for "early-to-bedders" or "late risers"! The quiet 3-season back porch has a ceiling fan, garden-style furnishings and table seating, and is the perfect spot to enjoy a good book or play a board game with a view of the wooded rear yard. The outdoor shower and washer/dryer are also located in the enclosed porch.

While bringing your own car is recommended as it will provide you the most ease and flexibility for getting around, it is possible to bike or walk the distance to Eastville Point Beach (0.9 mile), and the town centers and ferry terminals of Oak Bluffs (1.6 miles) and Vineyard Haven (2.0 miles). Families with children should note that biking or walking to town centers or beaches does require travel along busy roads. A paved bike path and the VTA bus route are just 100 ft. from our front door, and offer alternate transportation options if you choose not to bring or rent a car. There is ample off-street parking on the property for 1-2 vehicles to the right of the cottage.

My husband Ted and I fell in love with Martha's Vineyard when we first visited this island many years ago. We bought our island home in Vineyard Haven when retirement was imminent, and purchased this cottage in 2018 to generate some retirement income as well as to accommodate visiting family and friends. I hope you'll agree that our cottage's simple charm, convenient location, and comfortable amenities provide the perfect home-base during your stay on the island. While I'll allow you to enjoy your hard-earned Martha's Vineyard vacation on your own, please know that I am available by text, phone or email anytime before and during your stay, should questions or concerns arise.
