The "Island Home" is a very private one bedroom second floor suite with a view of Vineyard Haven Harbor in the historic Thomas Chase House (built in 1717), the oldest house in downtown Vineyard Haven. Located directly across from the Ferry. Private parking space. Sleeps 3

The space
The house was a B&B for whaling ships in the 1700s. This is the first time this house is being rented as a "B&B" style rental in over 200 years. So much charm and history in this house! This PRIVATE suite has a full kitchen equipped with a full size refrigerator, keurig coffee maker and a microwave. The "living room" has a twin bed with a couch, a dining table and a tv with basic cable. The bedroom has a queen bed. The apartment has an air conditioner and a private parking spot in our private parking lot that is STEPS from your door. The location is unbeatable as you are steps from the downtown shops, restaurants, the public bus system and the ferry boat. The beach along the harbor is right across the street and is perfect place to sunbathe, watch the boats come in, cool off, look for sea glass, or do some fishing off one of the 3 boat docks. Be sure to take an evening stroll along this beach. A perfect view of the Vineyard Haven harbor from your living room. The house has four separate living quarters and all have private entrances. This suite shares an entranceway that leads to the private entrance to your quarters. The front door of the house enters into a shared hallway and you take the stairs to your separate entrance. The hallway is just like what a B&B or an apartment building would have. You will be more than satisfied with the privacy of the entrance and the room. Nice yard for relaxing on the grounds as well.

There is only one queen bed and one twin bed in the apartment.

The suite is for a maximum of 3 persons.

Absolutely no third party bookings. If you book the room you must be one of the guests that occupy the apartment. We asked that you be courteous and do not deep fry any food and refrain from cooking seafood in the apartment as it leaves a smell that is very unpleasing to the next guests. Thank you.

Guest access
In addition to our outdoor seating area, guests are steps away from the beach along the harbor and the glorious Owen Park. Steps from shops, restaurants, movie theaters, public transportation, bike rentals and many others. Of course we have Wifi for you.

Other things to note
Private parking spot available for you if you have a car.

The house is 300 years old and has some lower than normal thresholds and the steps leading up to the suite are smaller and a bit steeper than normal.

Please make sure you are able to get in and out of a old large cast iron tub to take a shower. There are no handicap rails.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding these issues please ask us questions.

Hi! I am an enthusiastic, creative, fun loving mother of 2 awesome children (ages 12 and 14), and a wife of the man of my dreams. We own and operate an Organic Juice and Smoothie bar called Blissed Out, and a jewelry store where I sell my designs called The Crystal Cave. Both located in downtown Vineyard Haven on the island of Martha's Vineyard. We own a historic house, the Thomas Chase House, which was built in 1717. With my background in construction, I have fully restored this old house with my own two hands. I have given this house the love and respect that it deserves. I began restoring the house with my dad in 1999 and right away began running the house as a private B&B for family and friends. Everyone always told me that I would someday run the best B&B on the island. Well, after 13 years of raising kids and running a business I now have the time and dedication to make my house a public "B&B" (airbnb). As of May 1, 2016 I am now renting out 3 different B&B style apartments/rooms on Airbnb!. I have paid close attention to detail and have created some amazing spaces for happy travelers from all over the world to come and share it with us. My family and I love to travel together. We are huge lovers of hiking! We take our kids on an epic cross country rv trips every year. We enjoy towing our 5th wheel around and exploring national parks, cities, little towns and secret hiking trails. My children are so sweet and well traveled as you will see if you meet them. They are helpful and considerate of guests. You will be sure to love them. Thanks for reading and hopefully we will get to meet you in person! Jennifer
