Home hunting at this time of year is an unpleasant endeavor for buyers and renters alike. It seems like everyone and their mother is interested in the same space and beating you to it — whether in terms of price or literally getting arriving at a showing first. Add Boston’s temporary seasonal residents — summer term professors and students enrolled in summer programs — to the mix and the apartment hunt becomes even more torturous. That’s where Furnished Quarters comes in.
Few look forward to going to work each morning like Leslie Cooper Floyd does. As the director of sales for the Harbor View Captain’s Cottages in Edgartown, one of Martha’s Vineyard’s storied escapes, Floyd’s desk is in one of the cottages that make up the Harbor View Hotel and Resort’s residential development. With a sea grass lined beach and small harbor just yards away, and set among shady tress and gentle landscaping, Floyd’s is one of the nicest offices, in one of the most picturesque and peaceful settings.
