About the property

Martha's Vineyard Vacation Rental; 1 mile from beach; town and ferry

Wonderful ground floor of our 2 story home, complete with private deck, separate entry, and everything you need!

Great for couples or small families. Come enjoy the beauty of the Vineyard. Close to West Chop, near the bus stop. 1 mile to beach and to town. Newly remodeled with huge deck and yard. Nice outdoor space for dining, lounging and sunbathing. In the morning have your coffee while soaking in the hot tub. Then take a walk in the peaceful, West Chop Woods and view the ocean at the overlook. Later pack up your lunch in the cooler and head for the beach. Evenings you can roast marshmallows around the fire - outdoor fireplace on the patio, and barbecue on the Weber gas grill. The hot tub is steps away and the stars await. Sleeps 4. 1 bedroom with new queen Beauty rest mattress and sleeper sofa in the living room.

Ed and Lea Griggs

We purchased our home in 2005 right after we were married.

Why Edwin Griggs chose Vineyard Haven

We love the area, it's so quiet and close to the West Chop Wood trails. Walk to the beach near the Vineyard Haven Yacht Club, close to the ferry and Tashmoo.

Excellent charming place to spend vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This rental place is as described at their website and more. Very friendly and charming owners.You will feel like at home. While we stayed there we did not need anything except the groceries which is not very far. I can imagine that it would be even a better place during summer season where one can enjoy the deck. They are not overstating when they say it is huge. Hot tub was an excellent addition and they even have a outside fire pit. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting MV and looking for a rental.

The house was spotless and well-stocked. The owners couldn't have been more hospitable. The deck area is amazing. Hot tub, fire pit, complete with kindling, wood and marshmallow-toasting sticks. Great location. Highly recommend (just not for the next time WE want to go back!)😏?

Great hospitality!

Ed and Lea were very accommodating and friendly. Their place served our needs and the location was great too (best if you have a car, which we did). Hot tub was a bonus!

Outstanding management, clean, comfortable and attractive good value for any small group

  • 4 of 5

Ed, the owner is a very knowledgeable Islander with good recommendations on places to eat, and visit. Lea his wife has a very keen attention to detail making any female companion very comfortable. Ed is a good builder, so the place is well maintained. The Deck is a blast with hot tub and lounge chairs, outdoor shower for cleaning up after a serious day at the beach. The Kitchen is fully outfitted for any occasion a guest might want. These people know what it takes to be comfortable on the Vineyard.

Charming and cozy home in Vineyard Haven

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 loved staying with Ed and Lea over this past weekend. Wished we could have stayed longer to take advantage of your deck and hot tub! Thanks also to Lea for being so hospitable and even giving us a ride one time. Thanks for your hospitality and hope to be back soon!
