Beautiful estate w/large lawn made for socializing & kids' play room!

The sky is the limit in this upscale Martha's Vineyard vacation rental. With a large lawn and spacious accommodations, this beautiful estate is luxurious and yet homey, welcoming all for a relaxing East Coast retreat.

Located in the neighborhood of Tisbury, and close to the shores of Lagoon Pond, this charming home is close to the action yet tucked away in a quiet residential area filled with families and locals. Guests can enjoy a leisurely walk to the shores of Lagoon Pond with a book and a picnic, or launch a water craft off of one of the nearby docks.

Visitors will be quick to notice the size of this home's stately lawn - a sprawling patch of green ringed by trees with a fountain planter in the center. The house itself is all cottage on the outside with white trim, traditional clapboard siding, and a brick chimney.

Once inside, however, you will find a historical home filled with antiques and retro decor filled with the stories and laughter of past generations. Named for the perfect flying conditions - "ceiling and visibility unlimited", CAVU - this home is an excellent canvas on which to create your dream vacation.

Entertainment is endless in this home. Besides the classic WiFi and cable, this home's electronic fun includes a Blu-ray DVD player, a VCR, a CD player, and plenty of board games to keep the fun going late into the night. Forgot your Kindle or your novel? This home has several libraries scattered throughout the home for you to browse.

Don't leave the small guests out! This home comes with a tree house-inspired play loft, where kiddos can play their own board games, put together puzzles, color in coloring books, or read children's books. Kids will love the fun, triangular shape of the room and the ample windows, where kids can watch movies or read in the bean bag chair. Toys and stuffed animals are ready for snuggles, and the curtains can be drawn for afternoon movies.

This home has plenty of space to gather as a group with several different sitting areas. The more formal sitting area with period-style furniture is a great place to sip on wine while listening to a CD, or catch the latest sports game on the flatscreen. A more intimate sitting space with homey furniture and a DVD/VCR player creates a more causal setting. Take reading, board games, or lively conversation out onto the covered sun porch.

Enjoy an outdoor affair with a grill and several sun chairs on your own porch, made private by the tall trees and shrubs surrounding the deck. While the adults sip beverages and grill, let the youngsters play a game of kiddie badminton, frisbee, or catch on the lawn.

This home comes equipped with a full kitchen done all in white for family-style dining, plus two dining rooms in which to enjoy your meals. The kitchen is particularly spacious, allowing for many cooks to help each other create a feast, or clean up after it. Extras like a blender, a slow cooker, a mixer, and a dishwasher add to the cooking experience.

When darkness falls and it's time for sleep, five bedrooms and five full bathrooms welcome all guests to close their eyes and catch some z's. A total of 10 guests (eight adults maximum) will sleep comfortably here, making it a great home for groups of adults or mixed-age groups.

Two bedrooms have king-size beds - one is upstairs and the other on the ground floor. A third bedroom attached to the kids' playroom has a queen bed and a private bathroom, perfect for a couple to share. A fourth bedroom has two single twin beds for older children, and the fifth bedroom has a set of twin bunk beds for your guests. The master wing of this house has brand new hardwood floors!

Fun awaits you here in Martha's Vineyard. Start at the shores of the Lagoon Pond with a kayak, a stand up paddle board, or a small sailing boat. Bring your buckets and your clamming gear for a trip to Norton Point Beach, or simply stroll the paths while watching for local birds. Any time of year you can take a sail on the tall ships, though if you're here in August, be sure to check out the wonderful Agricultural Fair.

For even more excitement, take the ferry to vibrant, bustling Cape Cod for a day of shopping and dining, or to the sister island of Nantucket. Hike to various lighthouses for a dash of history with your relaxation, or take the kids to visit the Flying Horses Carousel or Oaks Bluffs.

Perfect for a family escapade, this charming Massachusetts vacation rental offers a relaxing backdrop for your fun-filled vacation.

lots of space and rooms are in 3 different spaces so you don't feel on top of each other. Living room large for gathering everyone. beautiful grounds.

Amazing porch and patio!
Thomas S. Sep 2019
Very clean home! Went for a peaceful walk down to the water down a dirt lane. On the walk we ran into a family of Turkeys that let us share the road with them, (my kids loved it).
Location was excellent, very easy short drive to Vineyard Haven.
Some of the furniture could use a little updating, not saying the furniture was dirty, it was clean, just maybe needs so updating. Overall great home I would highly recommend!

Spacious and convenient location to ALL... beautiful ground.. We enjoyed walking down to the private lake, a few morning trail hike, as well as driving to the public beach. Also to mention, back road access to the new MV museum. However.. having a 4X4 helped, else the backroad to access the house was a bit bumpy, nevertheless, the CAVU home had everything we needed and more...!

The furniture, kitchen, the yard, everything is very nice

Excellent, spacious, comfortable home for the complete family. Location was perfect, with well-maintained lawn.
Bedrooms were big enough. We loved this place.

We loved this house for Labor Day Vacation. It meets all we needs.
Robert R. Aug 2018
Spacious; Not on top of each other; Lovely nooks and crannies
Pamela H. Aug 2018
The outdoor space was lovely and the perfect sitting and play area for kids. Inside sleeping, bathrooms and eating areas were great for our large family.
Daniel D. Jun 2018
The place was spacious, accommodating, private, and air conditioned - works well for a large group. We had a couple small issues, and they were fixed within a couple of hours - phenomenal service! The yard is really nice too. I agree that the house is a bit dated, but it didn’t phase us at all. My one complaint is that the pictures imply there is a path that is within walking distance to the beach, and that just isn’t true. Overall, I’d recommend it, especially for larger groups.

House was lovely and warm-hearted. Seems have long history and fit for three families vacation.
Joanna C. Sep 2017
Spacious home with enough bathrooms and bedrooms to go around. It’s cozy too!!
Leslie F. Sep 2017
The house is a nice house, but the property is personalized and dated. It needs a through top to bottom cleaning. It was a fine house, but seems like family vacation house offered up for rental. We knew we were getting a dated house and it would be fine and given similar choices we'd pick again. A deep cleaning would do WONDERS for the home. The porch and serenity were great.

We stayed here on our first trip to the island for 2 nights. The pictures of this house verses the actual house are different. Very dated and not the most taken care of. This house would be good for large groups or multi family getaway. Not great for small children. The playroom had no toys, only empty boxes. The cribs legs are very uneven and unsafe. I would not stay here again.
Manager response:
We are very sorry the guests were less than satisfied with the property. The majority of our guests have loved the home's decor and beautiful charm. The crib has been removed. Thank you.
Robert R. Aug 2017
The team was freindly and provided impeccable customer service. Don especially was very helpful and responded immediately when called
Jason H. Aug 2017
great yard
Charlene M. May 2017
Great spot/house for more than one family.

There were 10 adults and 2 babies. Each family had their own separate sleeping area and bathroom so you could go hide from others or stay and join in the fun depending on your preference at the moment.

The screened in porch added lounging area from the living room, which was well used.

Setting is quiet and pretty.

We were working on a late Fall project in Tisbury and stayed here on buisness.This is a beautiful property. There was a deer on the lawn on our first night. The staff was extremely helpful when a couple of logistical questions came up. We would stay here again
James C. Sep 2016
This was our lodging for an island wedding we were attending. Worked well for us. Located near the weekend wedding activities, it was a great place to stay. Lots of room for everyone.
Carolyne F. Aug 2016
Plenty of room
Good location
Barbara R. Aug 2016
Stayed here for a week with girlfriends. House was spacious and clean. Air conditioning and TV's in good working condition. Would stay here again!
Amal T. Aug 2016
We were so happy especially for renting the last minute, everything went good and we will do it again
Laureen M. Aug 2016
House is very nice. Great bedrooms and bathrooms. Perfect for a large family.
Benjamin C. Aug 2015
I don't believe I could write a review that would do this property justice. The 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths was more than needed for the 8 adults that stayed the weekend. Each had our own room and private bath. The yard is enormous itself, nearly 200 feet of open front lawn.
I assure you that the description of the house is accurate, but at the same time does not detail the beauty of this house. I will definitely be looking to rent this house again next year.
Connie J. Aug 2015
It was a good house for short notice rental, but honestly, I would look for something closer to the water in the future
