This is a classic, rare vintage Vineyard property: a beautifully simple, comfortable, and charming family house located directly on its own private beach on Katama Bay. Peaceful and secluded, yet a short walk or bike ride to the popular, public surf beach, and 3 miles from bustling, historic Edgartown. The house is both intimate and expansive: equally perfect for small families or larger groups, for quiet retreats or festive reunions. Spacious and soulful indoors and out. A magical refuge.


The space
This is a uniquely lovely and large vintage Vineyard beach house with six bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, a spacious common room, newly renovated kitchen and a spectacular waterfront setting. The classic Cape cedar shingled single floor house is furnished in its original low key, comfortable vintage 1940’s/mid-century modern style. It has a cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, and 2 walls of glass sliders, one of which has a stunning view of the property’s private beach and dock on Katama Bay just a few steps away. The Bay’s soft sand and calm water are ideal for all ages to swim, sail, kayak, sunbathe, build sandcastles or birdwatch. Beautiful sunsets over the Bay are especially dramatic from the dock or the rooftop deck. An expansive lawn opens out from the house and is furnished with comfortable teak furniture and a Weber gas grill for lounging and eating alfresco. There’s an outdoor shower and a full herb garden.

The generously sized open plan main room has two comfortable sitting areas and two dining areas, plus a games/puzzle table, with lots of flexibility and cozy corners for everyone. Every bedroom but one has an adjoining private bathroom and its own unique charm. The kitchen, just renovated in 2018, is well equipped, light and airy.

Katama is a quiet little neighborhood 3 miles from Edgartown. The town is known for its extraordinary architecture from the Whaling era, as well as shops, bars, and first class restaurants specializing in local seafood and produce. The secluded property feels like a world of its own yet is located just off the bike path, which takes you straight to Edgartown in one direction or to South Beach, the island’s most popular surf beach, in the other. Farmstands, a cafe/beach supplies store, and a popular diner are all along the way.

This property is a rare gem: a lovingly
preserved retreat into the peaceful charms of a simpler, slower, more soulful Island life.
