Renters should beware that one of the bedrooms is a walk-through to another bedroom and the second floor bathroom has no shower. The house badly needs some updating but overall it's very cute and in a fantastic location. I recommend checking in with the owners a few weeks before your stay to make sure there will not be any repairs needed during your visit. We had to deal with more problems than we should have given the price-tag. Rent this place with caution.

Owner response: We typically alert renters to the fact that the back bedroom is a walk thru and that the upstairs bathroom has a claw-foot tub. We will put that in the listing for future renters so they are aware. This was a difficult summer on the Vineyard where the lack of affordable housing for workers hampered the ability to get the workers we need to get the work done in a timely manner.

We had a great time staying at 20 Wayland Ave. The house was spotless, the location was ideal, and Miriam was fantastic to deal with. The fenced in yard was perfect for my 2 and 5 year old, relieving the stress of high traffic and children playing in the road! What an awesome place for a family vacation, we had an unforgettable 2 weeks.

Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs:
We rented on the Vineyard for years from friends and eventually outgrew their home. We enjoyed the Vineyard so much, we decided to purchase a home here. We really enjoy the proximity to Circuit Avenue and the harbor. It is especially nice that we can walk to the house from the OB ferry, and we can emjoy Illumination Night and the annual fireworks without worrying about where to park! Although we can't see the water from the porch, we get great breezes throughout the house in the evening and at night. The enclosed front yard makes it a great place for smaller children to play without wandering out onto the road. The outdoor shower helps cut down the wait for the bathroom after a day at the beach.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love this house! It isn't grand, but it has character and is a great summer cottage - almost like going to your grandmother's house. We really enjoy the fact that there are a variety of spaces you can go to to be alone, yet still be in tune with everything going on in the house. The wrap around porch and deck are great for an evening pre-dinner drink, or place to relax after enjoying a meal cooked and shared by friends. It also is a great place for an afternoon nap! This house has a great history of fun social gatherings. The previous owner, Miriam Walker, was known as a great hostess and known for her parties. The roses, lilacs and lavender bushes on the property were planted for her, and we have done our best to revive and care for them, while adding some flowers and plants of our own. The playfulness of the front porch was inspired by her - when we purchased the house the ceiling was hot pink and the floors were bright blue! Many of the furnishings were hers as well. So although we only became Vineyarders 15 years ago, being at 20 Wayland Ave makes us feel like we have always been here. We hope you will feel the same. There is a photo of Miriam Walker in 'African Americans on the Vineyard' and her name is carved in the front walk.
