A great building as a stand alone rental or part of the entire complex of bedroom/buildings that make up this six bedroom home! This unique building is made from the Factory Windows of the Arrow Shirt Factory in Troy New York!
This is an exotic, free standing building that is part of a complex of buildings related to a family compound in Aquinnah. Japanese in design with factory windows from the Arrow shirt factory in Troy New York! A Japanese tansue takes you up to the loft and single bed. It separates on the ground floor, the queen bed from the living area.
There is a full bath with claw foot tub, and a magnificent outdoor shower. The bus stops outside the drive way hourly. Price varies depending on the month.
This rental is perfect for a couple who have a car or are perhaps are bike riding. It is only a bedroom and living room, no kitchen. The rest of the home and buildings may be rented to people who have a large family gathering, so this building has its own patio and separate path to the parking lot. If The main building isn't occupied, you can use the refrigerator, and laundry below.
You have access to the best public beach on the island .There is a bus and this is a popular biking and hiking area.
The private beach pass goes with the large home as does the kitchen and laundry...again however, there is sharing and you can usually get onto most beaches anyway.
When we rent this building, it must be to someone who is quiet, non smoking and realizes it is mainly a bedroom/building, that gives them a base for swimming, hiking and bike riding. Priority always goes to the larger home.
No smoking. While we are friendly and eager to help you find your way around, both of us should easily find our privacy in this particular configuration.
This is not a cooking situation with so many exciting places to eat on the island, but we can store any refrigerated items for you and offer you our laundry facilities at certain times during your stay. This building would not be good for a toddler or more than one child.
We were absolutely delighted when we arrived. The photos are great but when you see it in person it's really amazing! The property is just incredible and the view is breathtaking. Karen was very gracious and easy to connect with. My husband and I both lived on the Vineyard 12 years ago and we had so much fun reconnecting with the land…couldn't have been in a better spot. We would LOVE to come back to another time and we plan to let others know about it! It would be the perfect spot for a large group/family to rent out!!
I can't say enough about this fabulous property. We were booked for the Factory Window Building but due to a broken water heater, were "upgraded" to the master suite. It was very comfortable with a serene vibe and artistic decor. The shared deck and kitchen area worked well; we met 2 interesting couples and enjoyed socializing. The view from the deck is amazing, with the sun setting over the water.
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This place was simply amazing. We marveled the whole time at the beauty of the house itself and the environs. From the second we opened the door to the Factory Windows building we were relaxed. Everything went off without a hitch and we had a great time exploring beautiful Martha's Vineyard.
This was our second stay at the compound and we enjoyed it even more than we did the Square House last year. I highly recommend renting the Factory Window building if you want a little more privacy than the main house and more room than the Square House.
Karen was, again, very welcoming and easy to communicate with. We really appreciate how laid back she is and the flexible check-in/check-out. I noticed a couple nice changes to furniture and accents. I hope we can continue to visit because this place is really one-of-a-kind.
glad you liked that, hope we can get you into main house eventually when no one else is there. If you have suggestions I am interested. I need to get some hose connection for that bath tub i think to make it possible to take a shower.
Hope it went ok with the other couple too.
This is our second time staying at Karen's house...The house is simply excellent...every room, every space has its own specific qualities.
Karen is such a lovely person, very responsive and helpful. She thought of every single detail to make her guests feel at home.
We will keep coming back!
Lots of love,
Senay & Ozgur

As a couple we love to travel, meet new people and explore new ideas. We would be called early adopters. We spent the first years of our married life renovating and creating spaces..love to collect architectural salvage and make it into something.
Now we are exploring innovative ways to have social impact.
While network seems a trivial term, we not only know a lot of people but love to connect them in useful ways. We have found this site an unexpected way to discover like minded people and in some cases, have become friends.
