Why Sam Ashford chose Martha's Vineyard

Nothing says Martha's Vineyard more than the fresh air, a day at the beach, an evenly played tennis match or that birdie on the 7th hole. There is plenty of space for the children to play, or host a small backyard picnic. This home is fully equipped with kitchen items, linens, picnic baskets, beach chairs, umbrellas & towels.

Whatever your needs may be, it is all within close proximity to your home away from home.

This property does not feature discounted stays or reduced rates. Please consult rates for additional information.

The perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

By far the best stay we have ever had in the Vineyard! My husband and I traveled with our three sons (5, 10, and 14) for a week in August. The home is amazing and perfectly located. Being part of the golf course community was ridiculously convenient. We have typically had to make several grocery store runs when on the Vineyard but this was the first time we had the luxury of walking five minutes away to a club house for lunch or dinner or just to pick up breakfast sandwiches in the morning. I am a stickler for comfort and cleanliness and I really appreciated that the house is so beautifully maintained. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. We loved the outdoor patio and hammock in the backyard overlooking the 7th hole on the course (where we caught a glimpse of President Obama playing golf with Steph Curry!!) but then we discovered the movie theater in the basement and wow, what a way to watch the Rio Olympics! We found it very useful and thoughtful for Sam to have a full binder of information with so many recommendations on how to enjoy the home as well as various activities and food choices on the island. (ps. If you are looking for a little quiet time, the window bench outside the master bedroom and the porch off the master bedroom make the perfect nook for a little meditation and reading in the morning. its fabulous!)

The other thing that stood out for us was Steven, the property manager. He was a pleasure to work with and extremely responsive.

Honestly it would be hard to stay anywhere else given such a great experience. We highly recommend!

Wonderful Family Home!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish this was a wonderful family vacation in this lovely home. Perfect location if you want seclusion - it is tucked away in the Farm Neck Golf Club - but just 6 minute drive into Oak Bluffs for all the restaurants, shops, and activities. Our party of 9 crossing 3 generations had plenty of comfortable space to gather or retreat. The kitchen was fully equipped to cook large family meals. We enjoyed the abundance of outdoor seating, the screened in porch, and the movie theater! Comfortable bedrooms with en-suite baths made for ample privacy.

Owner and caretaker were responsive and polite and wonderful to work with . Highly recommend staying at this lovely home. We will return.

This was a beautiful property that makes you feel as though you are in a resort -- the windows look out on sparkling blue water with the golf course in the foreground. It is large and roomy, with fun get-aways, like the media room in the basement, or even just a little alone time in one of the many bedrooms. There are two screen porches we weren't able to use due to the fact it was November, and same as the patio, but they were fun to imagine using! The one thing I would say to keep in mind is that while the kitchen is full of state-of-the-art appliances, and loads and loads of dishes and glassware, there is a serious lack of cookware itself. I had to cook eggs for a crowd in several of the smaller fry pans available (as opposed to a big one, which didn't exist). While this is far from a deal breaker, it was definitely a bit surprising considering the rest of the amenities were so spot on. As long as you don't plan to cook (which is hard to resist in such an amazing kitchen) this is a great house and location!

Rave reviews from our group.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home received rave reviews from our group of seven adults who enjoyed a great week in September. The house is perfectly situated in Farms Neck Golf Course offering tennis, dining and golf within walking distance, yet the house is in a private and very scenic setting.

Our group was comfortably accommodated , since each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and the floor plan afforded lots of privacy. The great room/living room, the heart of the house, is an open, nicely furnished space where we dined and watched T.V. When we cooked, the spacious kitchen was well equipped with modern appliances. Outdoor types will love the screened-in porch, which was another lovely place to read or enjoy a meal. This is the perfect house if you don't want to leave home (there is even a state of the art media room). However, the

location could not be better if you want to venture out. It's easily

accessible to the ferry, South Beach (our favorite), shopping,

Edgartown or Vineyard Haven. We loved it and would recommend it highly to a friend or relative.

Beautiful property, awesome amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this property to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and were far from disappointed. While the pictures and descriptions of the property were 100% accurate, neither did the property justice.

The property was very well maintained, with great attention to detail both inside and out. It was very reminiscent of a 5-star hotel, but with the familiarity of feeling right at home.

My wife and I were able to take full advantage of the full kitchen, as well as enjoy eating outside on the patio while taking in the spectacular view of the golf course (as described). Close enough to feel as though you had decent seats at a PGA Major, yet just far enough away that there was no risk of feeling like you're privacy was jeopardy. During the evenings that we spent on the property, we were able to enjoy the home theater in the basement (with HD and full surround sound).

The property is in the perfect location for enjoying a restful vacation, allowing us not to disturbed by tourist crowds and hustle and bustle of everyday island life. At the same time, the property is very convenient to the downtown area of Oak Bluffs, where we had access to the many shops, restaurants, and bike rentals - 5 mins / <$10 cab.

We would highly recommend staying at this property, and will look to book there again when we visit in the future!
