GREAT ESCAPE! QUIET AND COZY LOCATION WITH EASY ACCESS TO WHAT THE ISLAND HAS TO OFFER
"Convenient and quiet location...easy walk to favorite coffee spot in town and to lagoon. House is well kept and nicely decorated. It's home away from home with all the amenities for a comfortable getaway. Spacious enough yet quite cozy. Will definitely stay here again!"

"The home is a real Grande Dame of Oak Bluffs - a relic of the past, 1860s I believe. It has been updated tastefully, and comfortably.
Biggest issue we had is that it is located so close to Backdoor Donuts that in the evenings, gentle winds brought gusts of olfactory joy in the form of warm, freshly baked apple fritters and other similar treats. We couldn't resist, and the consumption of donuts before bedtime became a nightly ritual that we grew afraid to break.
The owner gave us a suggestion for what was our favorite meal on the island. We went to Menemsha Beach an hour before sunset, and bought the Sunset Special (take out) from Menemsha Fish Market for $19 a head: included a freshly caught and steamed 1.25 pound lobster, large stuffed clam, clam chowder or lobster bisque, cole slaw and corn. They provided everything we needed (napkins, plastic flatware, etc.). (It's messy.) What a value. What an experience. A lobster picnic on the beach at sunset. Our family will never forget that. At the instant that the sun disappears on the horizon, everyone on the beach claps, as if to applaud the performance that only nature can deliver.
We loved the house. We loved the vacation. We love the memories.
It was a privilege to be there, and we hope to be able to make this an annual reunion for our family."

"We stayed for 5 days and enjoyed the rental completely. It has wonderful views of the ocean and is very private and quiet. The house was very clean and we had use of kayaks to go into Chilmark Pond. The house was close to beaches as well. The only negative we had was that there was no television service (although they have a dvd player and we rented movies from the library). Just basic cable would have been nice. Also a plus was that they allowed our dog to come along. We are hoping to go back next year for a whole week."

"I stayed her recently on a family getaway that included toddlers, grandparents, and in between. The location is amazing -- we could walk to shops, playgrounds, the library, the water, and so easily bike or drive to the beach. But the street is still quiet and so peaceful. The house itself is so lovely and well-appointed. The kitchen has everything you could ask for and a great big table, two sitting rooms for quiet time, game playing, etc. And the bedrooms are all comfy and lovely, and set apart enough to provide privacy. I could easily see another family vacation here, but it would also be perfect for groups of friends. Oh, and the fenced in backyard is perfect for bocce, wading pool, or sprinklers! Truly a gem."
