Kick Off Summer on the Vineyard

Pohogonot Farm is located on the south side of Martha’s Vineyard on its very own private stretch of South Beach in the southwest corner of Edgartown. The Farm has seven family houses, panoramic views of pastoral fields, four ponds, a tennis court, and a 5 hole, par 3 golf course  and several beaches. This private 300+ acre estate is unknown to many Island visitors and is truly a hidden gem.

Built in 2005, the Heath House is a cedar shingled Cape-style home situated at the eastern-most end of Pohogonot Farm. Nestled in a grove of evergreen trees, the house has a wonderful sense of privacy, with panoramic views of South Beach and Job’s Neck Pond. The house has five bedrooms. There are two first floor master bedrooms, each with a private bath and hallway providing separation from the main living area. On the second floor there is a third master with a private bath and walk-in closet, and two guest rooms, each with 2 twin beds, which share a bath. The main body of the house has living, kitchen and dining areas all facing the ocean and opening up to an expansive deck. A fireplace in the living area will take the chill off in cooler weather, while a screened porch provides a sheltered escape for reading, intimate dining or just taking in the view. There is a cozy sitting room with a flat screen tv, a powder room, mud room and full laundry. All televisions have cable and house is equipped with wifi.

Maximum occupancy is ten people. Available for the week of June 23 - 30, 2019 only.

A Week in Scotland!

"The Deck House," St. Monans, Fife, Scotland

A rare chance to stay just 20 minutes away from the world-famous St Andrews Links! This modern family house located in an old fishing village is also near other challenging local courses, such as Kingsbarns and Elie. Gleneagles and Carnoustie, which have both hosted the British Open, are an hour-and-a-half away.

With panoramic views over the Firth of Forth and St. Monans historic church, the house is perched on the cliff above the sea with wrap-around deck. A back gate leads down the Fife coastal path. The house has three bedrooms, an additional fourth mezzanine-floor bedroom accessible by a fireman’s ladder, two bathrooms, and sleeps six-eight people—a perfect house for a family holiday within an easy drive from Edinburgh Airport. For the non-golfer there are coastal walks, beaches, and the historic university city of St Andrews. Edinburgh itself is an hour-and-a-half away!

Mutually agreeable week, subject to availability.
