About Steve Church

My wife and I grew up on the Cape, and so frequented the Vineyard often. Since having a family, we have vacationed there many times. Offering tranquil scenery, beautiful beaches, expansive bike paths along the ocean, great towns, restaurants and nightlife, the Vineyard is truly the perfect location for a family getaway. We purchased a Vineyard property specifically to offer families an unforgettable vacation experience. With this in mind, we furnished it to mirror the luxury of a high end coastal resort, but with terrific amenities (e.g. private pool, kid's TV/game room, video library, etc). We hope you enjoy our home for an unforgettable vacation. Please call if we can answer any questions you may have.

Steve Church purchased this house in 2012

First Class Vineyard Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an outstanding stay on the Vineyard, in large part because of everything this wonderful vacation home has to offer. The home's Katama location is ideal for beach lovers as well as offering the convenience of a short bike or car ride into Edgartown. The owners were terrific, starting with the quick response to our initial inquiry to helping with travel logistics along with providing a great list of restaurant recommendations. The home is perfect for creating a memorable vacation with your family or a group of friends. The interior of the home is beautifully decorated and has every amenity that you would want. Outside the home, the heated pool is perfect for a wake up swim, a mid-day nap or enjoying a relaxing evening with a grilled dinner and drinks under the starlight. At the end of our stay, it was hard to pry us away and there was great distress that our week had ended. But, as the saying goes, "All Good Things Must Come To An End" and having to leave this beautiful home was certainly in keeping with that sentiment. When considering a vacation on the Vineyard, you should put this perfect option at the top of your list.

Fantastic MV Vacation House!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd consecutive September stay in this beautiful house, and each year is even better than the last!!! Everything about it is perfect - the location, the house itself, all the little things and especially the owner and caretaker. Steve and Craig have combined to think of everything. Pure luxury all the way around. That part of the island is perfect for walks and bike rides, whether you want to walk on the beach or in and out of the neighborhoods, or up to the Right Fork Diner, one of our favorite spots just a few minutes away. The deck and heated pool are perfect, and where we end up spending most of our time. The separation between the master bedroom upstairs and the other bedrooms downstairs also makes the house extremely well laid out for our extended family and grandchildren. When you add in how dog friendly the house and Steve are, you've got a perfect vacation for our family. Thank you Steve and Craig for continuing to invite us back each year!!!

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home to spend a fabulous week enjoying Martha's Vineyard. We loved everything about it: the house was immaculate, the kitchen perfectly stocked, the location ideal and Steve was very responsive and incredibly helpful. All around so perfect that I am running out of adjectives! Thank you for everything! I highly recommend Katama Luxury!

A Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 9th time on the Vineyard, and this home was by far the most comfortable and well-appointed that we have experienced. Steve (and Craig the caretaker) were extremely responsive to questions and suggestions, and they went far beyond our expectations to ensure that our time was a fantastic one.

The home is very conveniently located close to South Beach, and, when it was nap time for grandchildren, the pool was a hit for the rest of the afternoon and evening. The outdoor shower was used heavily, and is the nicest one that I have ever showered in. The kitchen / family room was also a perfect gathering space for our family. We actually grilled a few times on this vacation, and were thrilled to find the gas grill not only with plenty of fuel, but spotless upon our arrival.

I agree with others that this home is worth the investment. The home is so well maintained and tastefully appointed that we were able to put all concerns behind us and simply enjoy a week as a family together. Thanks again Steve for sharing your home with us.

Gorgeous Property and the Perfect Relaxing Vacatio

  • 5 of 5

This property is not only lovely but well-kept and ideal for families of all sizes. We especially love the close proximity to Edgartown and the beach although we found very few reasons to leave the house the entire week as we had everything we needed for a great vacation. This is our second year staying at this property and could not be happier with our stay. Craig the "caretaker" is available at any time for questions or problems should they arise. Every detail of the home is perfect!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with a group of eight women for our annual girls getaway weeekend. The house is beautiful. It is warm and inviting yet looks like it has been photgraphed in a magazine. It is fully stocked with everything you would need if you decide to cook your meals. A short walk to South beach is a added plus. Since our stay was in April the pool was not open but if you rent in the summer you have the best of both worlds. The owner and caretaker were great to deal with. The owner was quick to reply to any question and followed up with contact upon arrival to make sure we were happy with our stay. The caretaker greeting us on arrival going over information was a nice touch even helpful with suggestions where to eat. You will thoroughly enjoy your stay at Martha's Vineyard staying here

This property is located a short walk from South Beach (1/2 mile) and a short drive from Edgartown Village (2 1/2 miles). There's a nearby bike path that runs to South Beach and to Edgartown Village. This property also overlooks Herring Creek Farm with South Beach in the background. Very nice/scenic location with easy access to the beach and town.
