Lovely location in Chilmark. Beautiful views from back porch of menemsha harbor. Nicely secluded area. Nicely designed house w koi pond. Well stocked kitchen. Does get a little hot bc on hilltop ( but it is summer). Susanna is very responsive.
Lovely family vacation
This is a beautiful and unique property with spectacular views. Our ten person multi-generational crew was very comfortable and had a wonderful week! The kitchen is well stocked with all the supplies we needed. The location is supremely private and offers a lovely retreat in and of itself. You could spend the week exploring the immediate area and simply admiring the view from the deck. The owner and property manager were very responsive to our handful of questions.
One note, the two downstairs rooms are best for kids as one has twin beds and the other a pullout couch. Also, there is some lingering moisture/mold smell, particularly downstairs. Not surprising given location and era of the house and as long as we had windows open it was totally manageable. But worth noting if you have allergies or are highly sensitive to such things.
Overall, a unique and beautiful home-base for a memorable vacation!
Unique home with beautiful views, could use a refresh and accurate listing
Pros: The house was last renovated circa 1985. Lots of vintage details, the owners carefully curated art collection and beautiful ceramics all give a great aesthetic and the feeling of a home well-loved. Fans of the decor of this time period will love it. We also really appreciated the beautiful water view from the deck. The house is also incredibly private and well-situated for those who love nature and the wild side of Martha's Vineyard.
Cons: The house was last renovated circa 1985. Saying this as kindly as possible, it is time to invest money in upgrades and refurbishing the home to bring it up to the norms renters are expecting from a home rental at this price. (Screen doors struggle to slide open, interior recessed lighting fixtures are stained with rust, materials such as linoleum and drop ceilings are present in the living areas of the house.)
Of five bedrooms in the listing, only three can comfortably receive guests-- two in the basement smelled badly of mold and one "bedroom" had a pull-out sofa that was simply not an acceptable sleeping accommodation. In addition, there were rodents running through the ceiling between the two floors of the house. After alerting the owner to these issues she was incredibly prompt in her response and was kind enough to come over personally to the house to discuss the concerns, yet she offered no real solution: moisture in basements and critters in wall were "normal" for Martha's Vineyard and we should do our best to enjoy our vacation by "getting outside more." Again, the owner was very kind but has maybe been on the Vineyard too long if all of this seemed "normal"!
After 5 years renting in the summer on both Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, we've developed a good sense of "what you get for the money" and I must say that there is a big disconnect between the quality and comfort of this house and the price we paid versus our rentals in other years.
It seems the house has been in the owner's family for a few generations; I hope she'll consider investing the money required to keep future renters happy and make this a family heirloom for the generations to come.
