Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Our party of eight included 2 seniors, 4 millennials and 1 toddler and 1 baby, and everyone loved their stay. When asked, folks gave high rankings to the screened in porch (fun playing with toys and eating), the upstairs porch (quiet place for reading and talking and star gazing), the kitchen (plenty of space and everything needed for cooking), a clean house, a beach within walking distance with a shallow area for small children, and a parking pass to beautiful local beaches. And a very responsive landlady!

Victoria was a responsive and an accommodating host. Mara was kind and informative. The cottage is exactly as described, quiet, quaint with all necessities and excellent wifi. The accesses to the beaches (plural) were amazing which we took full advantage of. Wonderful stay!

Location was perfect for getting away and disconnecting for a bit. Home had all the necessary amenities and the view was great. Downstairs patio was the perfect place to enjoy meals.

This is indeed a "calm and charming" home, and we enjoyed our stay! Aquinnah itself is beautiful (loved the ride to the house from Vineyard Haven), although if you're bringing along teens, you might want to emphasize ahead of time the quiet (and the beauty of the beaches and other natural areas) as opposed to anything they might experience in town. That being said, the wifi worked perfectly, so nobody felt too isolated. ; ) My only suggestions are: making sure to update the binder of information in the house so access to the private beach and kayaks is accurate, and maybe adding a broom and dustpan to the (otherwise well appointed!) kitchen just to make daily clean-ups easier. That being said, the owner was extraordinarily responsive, so these little "issues" weren't really problems at all. Bottom line: If you enjoy the beauty of the ocean and the wooded areas of MV, as well as peace and quiet, this is the spot for you!

This house was so secluded and quiet. We loved the beautiful wood and unique design. The upstairs deck was my go to spot! ❤️

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at this comfortable house in Aquinnah. It was so quiet and peaceful, the deck and screen porch were perfect places to relax. We would highly recommend renting this house.

We have visited MV for over 30 years and almost always stay in Chilmark. We decided to venture further up island and I’m so glad we did! The property is so beautiful and the house is very well equipped. It was the perfect set up for myself, husband, and sister and her 18 month old (parents: there is a tub!) Victoria provides a binder with a lot of helpful tips about the house and the area. We took advantage of the beach access and the kayaks - highly recommend! There are two balconies which is just lovely! Also a gas grill. If you’re looking to disconnect (don’t worry, there’s still wifi) and relax, this is the place for you. You definitely need a car so make sure to book a ferry reservation.

Rented this property for our young family to stay for a week in June 2022. The open kitchen and screened in porch make meals very enjoyable. The location is away from all the hustle and bustle of the larger towns, but still a short drive to places like Gay Head Light and Meneshma Harbor. Speed bumps are quite large and require careful navigating. Roof deck is nice, as is the outdoor shower. Great place to get away from it all.
