This is a 3 bedroom "upside-down" house one mile from the center of Vineyard Haven. It is a sunny, spacious, family-friendly home complete with amenities that will make your stay fuss-free and comfortable. The West Chop area is "Classic Vineyard," quiet and less developed than some other parts of the island.
This is an open, sunny, spacious house. It's so bright even on a cloudy day. Sit a spell in one of our deck rocking chairs and enjoy the peaceful quiet of West Chop. The layout of the house consists of three bedrooms on the ground floor with the living area and kitchen upstairs. The master bedroom features a king bed. Another bedroom has a lovely queen bed and another has two twin size beds. Upstairs in the living area is a pull-out sleeper sofa that sleeps two. Each bedroom and the living area have HDTVs with Direct TV. Three of the TVs have DVD players. The house has two large decks overlooking a lovely yard and woodlands.
The house is a full, 3BR vacation rental. Kitchen is well equipped with cookware, dishes, side-by-side refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. There is a coffee maker with plenty of filters. Also a juicer and blender. We provide a high chair and a baby gate for toddler guests. For those who need to dress up for weddings or meetings, you will find an iron and ironing board. Full-size washer and dryer are conveniently located on the first floor where the bedrooms are.
Interaction with guests
We do not live on the island but are there often. Usually guests come and go to the house without a lot of assistance. A key to the house is kept in a combination lock box. We will email you the combination before check-in.
Other things to note
Keep in mind that this house is located in a small residential area but in a somewhat remote part of the island, although it is one mile to town and easy to get to. If you prefer an in-town location that is just steps from restaurants and shops, this is not the house for you.
With our super efficient heat pumps, the maximum heating is 70 degrees and minimum cooling is 70 degrees.
We ask that dogs use the driveway or woods for a bathroom. We try to keep the lawn attractive.
In general we expect that guests will leave the house as they found it, except for surface cleaning. We ask that guests leave the microwave, refrigerator, and grill in reasonably clean condition.
Please do not erect tents of any kind on the lawn.
We have a place to put garbage waste. We ask guests to follow our instructions regarding garbage and recyclables.
We ask guests to not leave unopened, unconsumed items at the house.
The house is located in a residential area, although there is some distance from neighbors. Still, we ask guests to be respectful and keep noise down at night.
Please be aware that we do not permit smoking inside the house.
