James' house was absolutely perfect for our group of 9. The layout - gathering space in the center of the building and sleeping spaces at either end of the house - allowed for both privacy and socializing. This fit our needs and our personalities to a tee. When we arrived we had a bit of difficulty setting up the WiFi. I called James and he responded within minutes. He stayed on the line until we figured it out. The house was well stocked with what we needed. The very large lobster pot was particularly appreciated! The location of the house deep in the woods was to our liking as well. So private and yet minutes to Menemsha, Alley's Store and the incredible Lucy Vincent beach.

Although the host did not get back to me as promptly as I had hoped, he was very gracious and helpful when we spoke on the phone the night before our reservation. He advised me to feel free to contact him during my stay if there was any problem. He was also very accommodating (he even sent me a photo of the location of the house key). The house is exactly as pictured in the photos on Airbnb. It is very spacious and comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. We all enjoyed staying there.

Lovey Chillmark home -- beds for days and four full bathrooms, including one extra special skylit bathroom upstairs with a view over the treetops. Great kitchen for entertaining. Comfortably houses three families or couples.

We were quite disappointed when we arrived at James’s house as it was not as advertised. Six months before our vacation, we booked a house with air conditioning due to family medical reasons. When we arrived, we found a house that was over 100 degrees with no AC. We appreciate that James had two portable units brought in for us but they were “rigged” and very ineffective. The units leaked all over the floor, let bugs into the house due to the vents not being sealed properly and never dropped the temperature below the mid-eighties. This still left the 5 bedrooms without AC. Definitely not as advertised. In addition, the house was in general disrepair. The house smelled of mold, most of the faucets leaked, most window cranks didn’t work, pots and pans were beyond dirty, beach towels needed to be washed before use, etc. The good news is that Airbnb could not have been more helpful. They immediately contacted James to verify the inconsistencies. Once they verified that the house was not as promised, they quickly helped us move to another property. Although our trip didn’t start out well, Airbnb’s quick resolution and excellent customer service saved our vacation.

The house was very modern and comfortable. Arrival was allowed a day early which we appreciated. It was a hot week so unfortunately there was no central AC buy the host offered a portable unit. This was fir a family reunion of 11 people and the house was perfect for that. Perfect for a weeks family get together of 3 generations.

It just so happened that there was a miscommunication with the cleaner and they did not come before our arrival. James was extremely speedy to remedy the situation and had the cleaners to the house in under an hour. When they left, the house was incredibly clean. We appreciated his responsiveness and attention to a situation that was truly an accident. Besides that our stay was fantastic. The house comfortably slept 8 and was only 10 minutes from Lucy Vincent beach.

The house was unbelievable and perfectly fitted our needs. The open space in the living room and big deck allowed for all of us to be together and have a great time!

I'm a semi retired carpentry contractor and spend a lot of time on Martha's Vineyard fishing and eating way too much fried seafood. We rent out our place there and I'm in process of renovating an old victorian out in the Berkshires.
I grew up as an Army brat so travel is imprinted in me. The Villas Orishas in
Costa Rica is another favorite destination.
