        When you are here, you are in the midst of vacation wishes come true:

 
Tashmoo Cottage and Hideaway, is located just one–and-a-half mile from the Vineyard Haven ferry dock (www.steamshipauthority.com) on the peninsula of West Chop. 
      World class shopping, dining and entertainment are within reach of an evening stroll in Vineyard Haven, also called Tisbury.  Yet, the 2acre family compound is set 150 feet off the paved road, in a quiet, lush setting -away from it all. A dreamy white clamshell driveway connects the homes, while plantings and screening provide privacy for each designated outdoor living area.  Green areas are available for all to play, like in a little village.  Rent one home and have perfect tranquility, or rent all three for a family or friends gathering.  Management is available on site.

       The neighborhood Mink Meadow Golf (www.minkmeadowgolf) is bordering the one-and-a-half mile dirt road from the front steps, of either home, to the secluded Tashmoo Beach www.tashmoocottage.com/marthasvineyard.php/1/Tashmoo-Beach.  The beach is a perfect morning jog for the active in the family, or a fun bike ride away for young kids.  The shallow lagoon welcomes the exploring wader on the inside of the pond, while the ocean waves on the ocean side accommodates mature swimmers. A lifeguard is posted summers between 10AM and 5PM.  There is parking for 15-20 cars at the beach.
       Owen Park Town Dock and Tisbury Town Dock with a public boat launching ramp, are equally near, as are two public tennis courts at no admission fees.  Visitors Shellfish Permits and information on kids programs can be researched at the charming white town hall on Spring Street, or online. (www.tisburyma.virtualtownhall.net) Several dirt roads in the area are worth exploring on foot or by bike.
More information on Island wide activities can be found at www.mvtimes under the Calendar there.
       The Island Shuttle makes a stop at Franklin Street, just 1/4 mile up on Daggett Avenue (www.mvtour.com) for wider island exploration if you leave your car at home.

              As the owner of this beautiful property,  I love to welcome you here, and hope this place will be the vacation destination that  fullfills your dreams.  Come take your shoes off and wade into the crystal clear water......
