Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: Edgartown’s Crème de la Crème

Every Vineyard town has a certain flavor – as distinct as the easy rolling hills of West Tisbury, the seaside charm of Vineyard Haven, the sparkling nightlife of Oak Bluffs and, of course, the New England beauty, manicured streets and vibrant roses of Edgartown. Today’s featured vacation home, defines this old world gentility with it’s decor, gardens and location. In fact, this historic home was once owned by Emily Post!

We simply must start with the garden – famous for more than 25 species of Dahlias, some descended from the original plantings dating from the 1920’s. And though the house is tucked in close to town, it boasts an expansive front yard and a separate enclosed side yard. Up top, a roof-top Captain’s Walk offers views of Nantucket Sound and a front row seat for one of Edgartown’s summer highlights – the annual 4th of July parade.


The interior of the house is elegant, but comfortable with bright colors and plenty of room to spread out. Five bedrooms provide room for ten to sleep easily. Of course, you might want to take advantage of the ocean breeze coming in from the beach and harbor, but you also have the option of air-conditioning as the house is outfitted with a brand new system. And don’t forget about the kids! This house has a wonderful playroom just for them.

Of course, location is tres importante! This property is conveniently and quietly located between Fuller Beach and Main Street and some of the best boutique shopping and eating on the east coast.I highly recommend treating yourself to a luxurious dinner at Alchemy, found right on Main Street.

Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: Classic Edgartown Village


This recently updated Craftsman style property sits right in the heart of Edgartown Village. It’s a classic home on a quiet street, with a phenomenal front porch – fully screened in so that you can watch life in Edgartown pass you by, joining in whenever you get the urge. And, you can stroll down to Espresso Love every morning for muffins and coffee, then go sit down at the harbor and watch the boats move in and out over the water.


The house includes a beautiful kitchen, TV den area and an office on the 2nd floor. The 1st floor is accented with high ceilings and antique accents. With four bedrooms and three full bathrooms, this house accommodates eight people. The back yard is a great place for little kids to play when you aren’t at the beach – which you can walk to! Fuller Beach is a short stroll away. And of course, you’re ever so close to Katama and South Beach!
