Guest Reviews

THE VINEYARD HOUSE - "This is our ninth consecutive summer coming to the Vineyard. Since renting the Katama House in 2007 we stopped renting elsewhere. All the Bonnetti houses are perfectly appointed for a great family vacation. The houses are cheerfully decorated, comfortable, clean and in a great Katama location."
The Surfside Cottage - This was the 3rd year renting from Sandra and Paul. Such a great location! Such lovely people. There is everything you could ask for In a vacation rental and if you need something just ask I am certain they will do their Best to accommodate you. Look forward to renting from them Again! Edwina & Don Amorosa 9/1-9/30
