Classic Cape home with full kitchen, W/D, firepit & gas grill - walk to beach

Named for the sea breezes that circle this charming and unique home, the Whistling Hill House is nestled alongside the Martha’s Vineyard Land Trust, ensuring a private and peaceful vacation. A five-minute walk takes you to Lobsterville Beach for swimming in the sound. Come home and wash off salt water and sand in the outdoor shower, then sunbathe on one of the two decks.

Window AC units are available in each bedroom, the living room, and the common room.

Ocean swimming is an eight-minute drive away at the beach, rated one of the 20 most beautiful in the world - the Moshup Public beach, with the spectacular-colored cliffs as background setting and the Gay Head Lighthouse overlooking the scene. A beach pass allowing parking closer to the ocean access is available to all renters.

The beach pass is a private parking pass that also allows parking at Moshup Public Beach, Lobsterville Beach, Menemsha Pond, and the Lobsterville Dock (where the bike ferry to Menemsha, fishing ferries, and swimming are all available).

For the best young children’s swim and play time, a saltwater pond is another short drive away. Menemsha Pond is also a nice place for a birding walk or a longer walk along beautiful Lighthouse Road. The traditional fishing town of Menemsha, still an active place to pick up the freshest fish available on the island as well as antiques and other niceties, is of course accessible by car - but is also easy to get to via the five-minute bike ferry operated between Aquinnah and Menemsha.

The Orange Peel Bakery is a Wampanoag-owned local bakery with an outdoor brick pizza oven, extraordinary homemade pies, and many other goodies. A 10-minute walk or three-minute drive up Lobsterville Road (in the opposite direction of the ocean), this spot often hosts summer pizza nights where folks decorate their own pies with various toppings.

At the top of the Aquinnah Cliffs, above the ocean beach, is a historic lookout where you can watch the sunrise and sunset with breathtaking views. The Aquinnah Shop Restaurant features one way of doing this while dining, but there are also a group of small shops and eateries which line the road to the top of the Cliffs. World-class clam chowder is available (comparing and rating the best chowder is an annual activity)!

Insights into local Wampanoag history and ongoing life can be found at the Aquinnah Cultural Center (a mini-museum), where summer workshops have included craft-making sessions, artist demonstrations, and book launches.

As noted, walks from easy to strenuous can be had just from the house - along Lobsterville Beach Road around the peninsula, to the ocean beach, cliffs, and lighthouse, or Menemsha Pond and the docks to the ferry to the town of Menemsha.
