No, this is not a real estate review, but when traveling away from home, to an island, where you probably won't have your vehicle, location can play a big part. My wife and I recently traveled to Martha's Vineyard. We drove to Falmouth and took the ferry to Edgartown, which dropped us off at Memorial Wharf. We chose to stay at the Kelley House, which we could see from the wharf! Just a one block walk and we were there, dead center in Edgartown. We were surrounded by restaurants and shops and gorgeous landscaping in all directions. The location could not have been any better. Literally a few seconds to get to an ATM, ice cream, breakfast, bars, a wine shop, fudge, clothing shops, and some fantastic restaurants which ranged from French, Italian, American, Seafood, and both more upscale or kid menu friendly.
How about the Kelley House? We immediately noticed how clean it was. Now most places we've stayed at are clean and housekeeping typically does a very good job, but there was something about how clean everything looked. Our room overlooked the pool and the ocean, filled with yachts and sailboats. We never heard any of our neighbors, the king bed was exquisite and we even had a small refrigerator in our room...a bonus we didn't expect. We had a single serve coffee maker in the room and each morning there was coffee and muffins in the lobby too. Four large towels for the two of us. Bonus again!
We heard there was fresh baked chocolate chip cookies in the evening, but we were typically out to dinner at that time. One night we came back quite late....it must have been after 10pm and the front desk person had to go get the cookies so we could take a few with us to our room....to have with the soft drinks we had stocked in our fridge.
Our whole stay - Martha's Vineyard + Location + Kelley House + Edgartown at our fingertips = a perfect stay.
