Winnetu is nestled into a quaint corner on the island of Martha’s Vineyard where farmland meets the dunes of South Beach. Miles of shoreline bordering Katama Bay and the Atlantic Ocean are just out our front door.
This old-school New England island has become the favourite retreat of US presidents, playwrights and pop stars alike, and it isn’t hard to see why. It’s a haven of peace and privacy, with white-sand beaches, pretty towns and great places to eat and drink, says Jay Parini
Martha’s Vineyard is about the changing relationship of sea and sky, and it’s a dynamic thing, always shifting. I think that’s what attracts so many. It’s why I live here,’ says Tony Balis, a writer and self-described ‘dreamer’ who heads the Humanity Initiative in Vineyard Haven. It has been his home year-round for 16 years, although he has been coming to the island in summer for half a century. ‘There is a deep sense of calm here,’ he adds. ‘I think that’s because of the six miles that separate us from the mainland. The journey, however brief, enforces a shift of consciousness. The pace of life alters when you step off the ferry.’
For whatever reason, I’ve always had a peculiar love of islands and have been especially drawn to those with rich histories and vivid settings. Martha’s Vineyard has everything I could wish for, and I’ve returned at intervals for four decades. For me, it’s an island that mixes memory and desire, as TS Eliot might have said.
