Welcome to our home.
I grew up on the Cape just across Vineyard Sound in Falmouth. I always loved taking the ferry over to the Vineyard as a kid. There was something magical about that 45 minute ferry ride. It was a way to completely disconnect from everything on the mainland and to unwind. When Patrick and I met, one of our first trips together was to Martha's Vineyard. He quickly came to appreciate its charm and (eventually) asked me to marry him in Edgartown. While visiting the Island what we both loved most was the tranquility of up island life in Aquinnah, Menemsha and Chilmark. The secluded beaches away from the crowds, breath taking views and quaint villages were the perfect counter to our busy lives in Boston.
We dreamed of one day owning a home here.
Ten years, three kids and one pandemic later we made the plunge and now welcome you to our home.
We hope you, your family and friends find it to be as special as we have.
This home and its potential spoke to us from the moment we saw it. Its unexpected views invite reflection.
We look forward to welcoming you to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle to reconnect with your family and your self.
If privacy, sandy beaches, bike rides, bike ferries, great food, fresh seafood and sun sets on the beach are what you looking for,
then you have found your destination!

Gay Head Light House
Jessica H, June 27, 2021
"We spent a delightful week at Christina and Patrick's house in late June, and could not have chosen a better place.
The house is immaculate, impeccably furnished, and beautifully located near Gay Head. It is quiet and beautiful, well-lit and well-stocked, and the sheets on the beds are the most comfortable we've ever slept in.
Truly a special house on a special Island: we can not recommend it highly enough"

"Beautiful Aquinnah house. Spotless on arrival. Amazing views from the deck especially at sunset. The house and the deck sit up high so you do feel like you are in the trees. They also invested in a great BBQ and the deck is an outdoor living room. Close to the beaches which are amazing. I loved the outdoor shower to complete the beach experience!
Will be back as soon as I can, I am already missing it!"
