Our home is on a quiet dirt road, but we are the first house on the right. Windows everywhere looking over the treetops. Sun filled great room with open kitchen, living room, and dining area. Kitchen features a Bertazonni stove where the gourmet cook can continue chatting with the guests or family while whipping up dinner. Comfortable living room/ dining room areas flow in spacious style perfect for family hanging out or entertaining guests. Large screened porch extends the main floor to allow meals or lounging in the shade - bug free!

Two upstairs bedrooms connect to a sunny deck with views of the Vineyard Sound and Elizabeth Islands. Private sunbathing way above the treetops. Primary bedroom has it's own small deck for private moments in the sun and an attached master bath. Luxurious outdoor shower with changing area plus shower. Large fenced yard provides area for pets to run around safely. Fire pit ready and waiting for Smores at night.

This Sandcastle is just off Lighthouse Road - quiet and private, yet just minutes away from three beautiful beaches, the Gay Head Cliffs with shops and restaurant, nationally known Orange Peel Bakery (Wednesday night make-your-own pizza nights are popular with islanders and summer folks alike). Quick access to Philbin Ocean Beach: one of the most beautiful ocean beaches on the island. Town permit will allow parking at all Aquinnah beaches.

Or bike down to Lobsterville pond for a kayak or sailing lesson, and then take your bike across the tiny bike ferry to Menemsha, the Vineyard's one of a kind fishing village. Quaintness on steroids. Eat fried clams at The Galley, or buy a hot lobster-to-go at The Homeport and feast on the beach.

The Sandcastle is a magical retreat but has easy access to the many delights of up-island living. Fifteen minute drive will take you to Chilmark's General Store (groceries, the best pizza on the island, a front porch full of rockers that are filled from 6AM to dusk with folks eating, reading, chatting, and people-watching.) In Chilmark you can also find the gorgeous Chilmark Library, the Community Center for kids and family events, with basketball and tennis courts available to the public. The Chilmark Tavern is a top island restaurant but with a relaxed atmosphere. BYOB - Chilmark is dry.

Aquinnah is 30 minutes away from the bustle and traffic of down island towns - but still close enough to head in for fine dining, movies, shopping and exploration of other island beaches.

The house is set up for maximum convenience, comfort and loveliness. WIFI IS AVAILABLE. (Note: There is no TV. But great wifi for watching stuff on your laptops!)

The house also has a state-of-the-art Bluetooth speaker system called a Phantom. (See www.en.deviolet.com/phantom/discover). Link your device to the Phantom and play your music (Pandora, Spotify, your itune selections) with an amazing sound. (Just please don't blast out the neighbors! The Phantom can get LOUD - with no distortion.) You will find Sandcastle to be a great blend of modern technology, and kick-back beach-house.

The house is stocked with baby-toddler equipment - a travel crib, high chair, toddler booster seat to strap onto a chair at the dining table, baby gate to block the stairs, and toddler plates, cups and utensils. Also a couple of toy wagons and large push trucks stored in the basement.

Come have a vacation you will remember. Fall in love with a house as we did. Sandcastle is a really special spot.
Located in Aquinnah, this vacation home is in a rural area and near the beach. Gay Head Lighthouse and Grange Hall are local landmarks, and the area's natural beauty can be seen at Long Point Wildlife Refuge and Long Point Beach. Chilmark Chocolates and Menemsha Blues Charters are also worth visiting. Be sure to check out the area's animals with activities such as game walks and birdwatching.
