Property type house

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This fully air conditioned 3 bedroom cottage sits directly on Sengekontacket Pond in the town of Edgartown. You will be welcomed through a wooden archway leading you to a cobblestone courtyard full of perennial plantings leading up to a wrap-around mahogany deck that affords incredible views of Senge Pond and stone steps leading down to it. Inside you will find an open, very well appointed cottage with equally stunning views of the water.

The first floor has an open floor plan with the kitchen, dining room and living room all together with vaulted ceilings and skylights. The first floor is also where you will find the first two bedrooms, full bath and laundry. All conveniently located towards the back of the house and can be closed off with a door for added privacy. There is also a pull-out sofa couch in the living room for your convenience.

Following the open staircase up to the second floor you will find a very nice sitting area just out side the master bedroom. Inside the master bedroom you still have amazing water views through the french doors that can also be closed off for privacy. Connected directly to the master bedroom is the second full bath.

This is a great cottage that is a perfect balance of island living with its clean white interior and hardwood floors, to its breathtaking water views. Its location on the pond is perfect for swimming, kayaking to the Jaw's Bridge, diving, boating or just about anything else you would like to do. Downtown Edgartown is only 2 miles away and the closest public beach is only 3 miles away and even though the cottage is just an 8 minute walk to the bus route and bike path it is still recommended to have a car for everyday convenience and to allow you the opportunity to explore the entire island and all that it has to offer.

So whether you're looking for an island getaway where you can enjoy everything from the privacy of your own cottage or if you're looking to see the whole island or a combination of the two, this is a perfect place to start.

Please be advised that if you plan on bringing a car to the island, especially during the peak summer months, it is mandatory to make reservations well in advance. The Steamship Authority typically begins accepting reservations in January for the upcoming year.

Perfect vacation home on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful 2 week stay in this beautiful home which sits directly in Segekontacket Pond. The view from the house is simply ideal and we never tired of just gazing at it from the lovely deck, living room or loft. The owner had kayaks available for our use and we went out on the pond numerous times and explored. The house had everything we needed and wanted -- great kitchen with every imaginable appliance, three beautiful well appointed bedrooms, two full bathrooms with awesome showers, four flat screen TVs, great sound system connected to the TV in the main room, and over the top master suite. I could go on forever -- the furniture was comfy, the washer/dryer nice and easy to use, Internet access was great, neighbors were friendly, and the kitchen and awesome grill made us truly enjoy cooking spectacular meals while on vacation! The location is perfect -- close to the supermarket and other shops in Edgartown, State Beach and Felix Neck Audobon Reserve, and a really quick drive or bus ride to Oaks Bluffs or Vineyard Haven. Let me just add that everything in the house was in perfect working order. The owner, Dave, was extremely helpful and responsive. One small thing broke during our stay and he had it fixed within 6 hours. I have been renting vacation homes in MV for more than 20 years and this is my best experience. My family is hoping to return to this wonderful home again next year!

Special spot

  • 5 of 5

We came here with our family with 2 boys for a fall get away. This house was perfect for us! More than enough room and a great jumping spot to explore the whole island. Also, the kayaks were fantastic and we took the boys over to the "Jaws" bridge to jump off (out of all the things we did, they loved this most!). Location is special with the water views and neighborhood feel and it was so nice to have a "home" where we could relax and cook after a long day outside (Kitchen is stocked with any cooking item you need). Boat ramp is next door but it wasn't any issue for us. We got to chat with the couple of locals who came by to go shellfishing. Overall, the neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. I will miss coffee on that amazing deck!

Owner's Response: Thanks Michelle, I'm glad you had such a good time and that the boys loved the Jaws Bridge...I still can't get my girls to do it:-) The deck will be waiting for you anytime you want to return. Thanks again, Dave

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in August as a family of four (2 teens). Working with Dave and booking was extremely smooth. Very professional and he is very low stress and extremely responsive in the process.

When we arrived at the house we were blown away by the curb appeal and then fell in love with the internal comforts and views.

Everything is very well organized and simple.

Thank you Dave. A very relaxing week.

A leisurely week on Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

We arrived earlier then expected and the home was already cleaned and ready for us to occupy. The home sits right on the water as pictured and made for a relaxing backdrop. The layout of the house works nicely so there is plenty of room for everyone without being on top of each other. The house is fully furnished and the kitchen has all the basics and more, for all your meal preparations. We used the grill serval times, its just down the steps from the deck and made some lovely dinners with it. The location was great, centrally located and easy to get to all the points on the island. We tried a different beach everyday. We rented bikes and were able to go right to the paths and explore from the house. Also the kayaks are a nice addition and the water right out the door is perfect for kayaks or just enjoying the view. I would highly recommend this home and would return in the future.
