Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: West Tisbury Water View

West Tisbury is a real treasure on Martha’s Vineyard. Officially, it’s part of the slower, less-crowded half of the island known as up-island. But, it’s not all the way out on the west end of the Vineyard, it’s right next to Vineyard Haven and Edgartown. As a result, you truly get the best of both worlds – the quiet, paradise and the easy access to the hustle and bustle of downtown.

This West Tisbury vacation rentals sits off a classic Vineyard dirt road off of the beautiful Lambert’s Cove Road – known for its towering trees, winding curves and access to Lambert’s Cove Beach and Uncle Seth’s Pond (super kid friendly). Like most water view homes, this one has two stories, built in reverse with the living areas – kitchen, living room, deck – all upstairs so you can spend your waking hours looking out across Vineyard Sound. Of course, the all important deck, is perfect for sitting outside for breakfast, lunch and dinner, reading a book off your summer reading list, or just staring up at the Vineyard night sky.

Inside, the house boasts vaulted ceilings, a large fireplace and a contemporary kitchen. Two master bedrooms downstairs have their own private baths, as does a TV room with a sleeper sofa. Bunk beds are perfect for the kids in your crew – or those that feel like kids when they’re on the island!

Lower Makonikey Beach is just a five minute walk from the house, and the front yard is perfect for a game of catch or hide and seek among the stone wall. I highly recommend having dinner right around the corner at the Lambert’s Cove Inn. The food is exquisite and so is the mood (no children under 16 to preserve the romantic atmosphere!)

Martha’s Vineyard Living Local Festival


Martha’s Vineyard is as progressive and very eco-friendly as it is beach-filled and gorgeous. We’ve embraced the living local movement with gusto, many members of our community are actually leaders in the rally! All spring, summer and fall, the markets are filled with local produce, meats, art and music. The restaurants plan their menus around what island farms are harvesting. Even our grocery stores carry local goods.

And every fall, the Island Grown Initiative throws a massive festival to celebrate the Vineyard’s local community. The Living Local Harvest Fest runs this weekend, Oct. 2 & 3 and is “a rich program of free community events that aim to increase awareness and accelerate the uptake of sustainable living on Martha’s Vineyard.”

From food, live demos, panel discussions to a gorgeous market from local artisans, herbalists to energy specialists – this festival has it all. There are stories from the Wampanoags, kids activities, music and even community yoga. Everything can be found at the West Tisbury Ag Hall…I’ll meet you at the pie eating contest!

Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: A quiet retreat in West Tisbury


The good news about renting a house on Martha’s Vineyard is that no matter what your rental looks like, the outside is always gorgeous. But don’t worry because our rental houses can be almost if not as beautiful as the land and sea around them. Especially this stunning three bedroom house in West Tisbury.

Located on the south side of the island on Middle Point Cove across from Long Point Wildlife Refuge and Tisbury Great Pond, this house is very private and tranquil like most of West Tis. The views are unspoiled and view forest, pasture and incredible visions of the water. Water access right from the house lets you kayak from the property over to the South Shore.


But back to the inside. In traditional Vineyard beach house style, the interior is filled with warm wood, high ceilings and wood beams – making it a perfect urban escape. Huge windows let in tons of that Vineyard sunshine, and there’s plenty of room to spread out with a spacious livingroom, den and dining room. The open floor plan let’s you and your family or guests spend time together without being right on top of each other.


The kitchen is the place to be with cool ceramic tile floors, more exposed beams and open shelves, not to mention a peninsula counter with stools. This most important room in the house opens right out into the dining room and living room
No island house would be complete with out deck space! This beach house has a long first floor deck with plenty of chairs and a second floor deck of the master bedroom. In total, the house sleeps and eats. If you’re interested in more information about this house, or in renting it, give me a call or shoot me an email. We still have openings for August and the fall – and, of course, it’s smart to book for next year as soon as you can!
