Relax on the gorgeous wraparound deck, let the sea breeze caress your face, listen to the chirping birds, and drink in the views of a pristine Lagoon Pond on the island of Martha's Vineyard. This classic deck home was built in the 1970s on a sandy hillside overlooking the water, but has been well maintained and improved over the years. Tucked in the woods on 1.5 beautifully landscaped acres, it has four bedrooms, an open living room and dining area opening onto a large deck with built-in bench seating. A walking path leads down to a private, sandy beach. A boat mooring is available and will be included with the rental if requested in time. Easy access to the fabulous system of bike paths criss-crossing the island -- you can even bike to the island's skating rink for a cooling session of ice skating, then bike back home and jump in the lagoon. There is also a ping-pong table and an upright piano on the lower level. Go to 'Further Details' for a YouTube video tour of the property.
