Host

Katama Delight is the all year round retreat of a family of five residing in Boston, MA. We love Martha's Vineyard and are happy to share our home with you.

Our home is a place to relax, unwind, and gain refuge from the routines of daily life. Come relax in the sun and ocean breezes with a good book, or gather family and friends for conversation. Walk the beach and nature trails, cycle along the island's many miles of bike paths, and enjoy golf, tennis, fishing, swimming, and water sports.

I was first introduced to Martha's Vineyard when visiting with high school friends. I returned to the island year after year, staying in Katama, where I had first discovered the magic of the island. Later, when my young family began to plan summer vacations, we found the island offered everything we desired. We adore Katama and the island. I have treasured my visits for many years and I have so very many family memories of our Katama holidays. Our Katama home is a truly special place.

We open our home and invite you to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of this magical island.

We have over twenty-five years of experience providing memorable family vacations to our guests.

Stay ''with us'' and enjoy the Vineyard experience.
