Meander through the bucolic landscaped gardens at this West Tisbury vacation rental. This cozy four-bedroom home features a small private island onsite, a wooden deck, and water views running the length of the property. It's perfect for a family or two couples looking for a weekend getaway.

Situated on Looks Pond, one of the best-kept secrets on Martha's Vineyard, this home is only a half a mile from downtown West Tisbury, 11 miles from Oak Bluffs, and only five and a half miles from the woodland refuge of Manuel F. Correllus State Forest.

This house is attached to a larger home but affords guests plenty of privacy. The newly remodeled galley kitchen features enough counter space to make a festive meal and has all the necessary accouterments to aid your culinary endeavors. An antique side table folds out to seat six and the wooden outdoor deck affords guests elegant patio furniture with seating for everyone.

Guests have access to a plethora of amenities, including two adult bikes, cable TV, free WiFi, an outdoor shower, four beach chairs, and a charcoal grill for al fresco dining. This home sits on Looks Pond and offers many places to rest, relax, or meander and the garden has been cultivated for generations. A footbridge gives one access to a small private island, perfect for romantic proposals or intimate conversations.

West Tisbury is less than a half a mile away and boasts a wealth of activities. Head to the farmer's market to get your product or listen to music at Agricultural Hall. Alley's Store, the sculpture garden, and the public library are all within walking distance. Lambert' Cove and Aquinnah Cliffs are popular area beaches if you feel like taking a trip to the sand.

Please Note: NO laundry facilities available for guest use.

Place was beautiful!!!

This is truly a magical place, the gardens and the pond are just magical, especially in July. We are a family of 6 and it fit us well even though the layout was unique. Great location to be able to get to all of island in 15 minutes each way. Bikes were a great addition so our kids could enjoy a quick ride to the weekend morning market. I can't wait to be able to come back and enjoy it more, what a true gift to be able to stay at this place. Hidden gem.

Great house with amazing landscaping. This house was the perfect base of exploring the island - the location is central to plenty of great beaches and other destinations with markets in close proximity as well (we walked to the local markets on one occasion in about 7 minuted). Highly recomend the garden house

Beautiful, spacious and large space. Private and off of the beaten path. Loved having access to a kitchen. We enjoyed the gardens and serenity of the environment,yet it was easy to access neighboring towns,events and beaches. Close to town hall, if bus transportation is desired,and a very interesting general store. Would've preferred softer bed and bedding,but was a great choice overall.

Very nice, serene place, centrally located. Amazing landscaping and setting.
Feel that only drawback is that priced a little high compared to other properties for the size ( no dining area - have to pull out folding table as well as tight kitchen space). This might not be a concern if you plan on eating out majority of times and don't have kids

its was a great stay, with great service , just a suggestion , that you make it much clearer to the renter their access to the beaches .
there are public beaches and beaches run by each town that you need a pass for,that cant be used in another town, and there is a fee , you need to go to town hall to get the pass .we were not aware of this and ran into problems.
