Owner info

About the owner: I have been successfully managing seasonal vacation property on Martha's Vineyard for over 30 years. I try to provide accommodations that I would enjoy visiting myself. I do my best to be as responsive as possible to guests comfort and enjoyment during their vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs:
This rental is a certified national historic property. It is the first commercial building built in the town. It looks virtually the same on the outside today as it did in 1862 when it was built. On the inside it has been modernized but remains faithful to its historic origins. The location is unsurpassed for guests looking to be centrally located in one of the most unique towns in the country.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The property has three units and is one tallest buildings in the town. The top floor occupies the entire floor with 360 degree views over the town and the ocean. It has a wonderful covered porch in the front overlooking the main street and a more private deck on the side with a grill and table/chairs. It has a bright sunny living room, a regular bedroom, and a second loft sleeping area. The second floor unit in the front has tall ceilings, two regular bedrooms, an eat in kitchen, and an amazing large covered porch overlooking the main street providing the best people watching spot in town. The third unit is currently unavailable for summer rental.
