East Chop is in Oak Bluffs and is a small landmass into Vineyard Sound about 1.5 square miles. Bell Buoy #5 is to the NE of the spit, but is easily heard to the western shore, indicating waves over 2 feet in height. The East Chop Lighthouse is an easy .5 mile walk. Oak Bluffs downtown is 1 mile away.

There are four named regions on East Chop: Eastville (west near the hospital shore), the Highlands (on the hill closer to New York Avenue), the Woods (central) and the Chop (N and E shorelines). 33 Monahegan is on the border of the Highlands and the Woods. [See map below.]
East Chop Map There are two public beaches on East Chop: Eastville Beach (not on the map but to the west near the OB-VH drawbridge, .75 mile from house), and Footpath to the Jetty Beach (#3 on map, .5 mile from house), near the entrance to Oak Bluffs Harbor and East Chop Beach Club. There's a small beach near the jetty available for swimming or fishing (#2), but there is no parking. Best sunset walk spot is #1 on the map. There are dozens of public beaches over the 26x12 mile Vineyard. In Oak Bluffs they include Lagoon Beach, Town Beach, the Inkwell, Sengiekontacket, Jos. Silvia State Beach, Little Bridge, Big Bridge, and Beach Wall.

The house is within walking distance (1 mile) of the OB ferries, with Vineyard Haven 3 miles away, Edgartown and the MV Airport approx. 6.

You cannot see the water during Summer from the house, although it is physically 1/4 mile from Vineyard Sound.

The house is spacious, unlike a cottage. It is a full Colonial, with flowered gardens. There is no air conditioning, but each bedroom has ceiling fans aided by Atlantic breezes. While there are two indoor full baths, we recommend the outdoor shower -- you'll enjoy that under a starry sky!
