"My family, friends and I had the pleasure of vacationing and celebrating my birthday at this beautiful historic home during the first week of August 2015. We loved every aspect of this charming home, that took us back in time and era, and allowed us to escape, appreciate and enjoy the serenity and tranquility that Martha’s Vineyard, Oak Bluffs and the Kenney Kottage has to offer.
We were welcomed by the sheer beauty of the home’s architectural features, and amenities- from the lovely landscaping, inviting and relaxing wrap around front porch, to the amazing backyard entertainment area, complete with a waterfall feature and invigorating outdoor shower! The details, warmth and beauty of this property are endless and added to our overall fabulous experience.
It is obvious that this home is well loved, regularly maintained and cared for. The owners have thought of everything! The renovations are outstanding and up to date, without taking away from the characteristics and uniqueness that a 100-year home offers. All of upgrades and decor are thoughtful, tastefully done and a big plus! I loved the huge pink hydrangeas, claw foot tub, bead boards and hardwood floors. We found Kenney Kottage to be immaculate, cozy, elegant, well stocked, very comfortable and super welcoming! The home easily accommodated our multi-generational family and provided an overall great atmosphere for entertaining and relaxing day or night. In addition, the home is ideally and conveniently located on a quiet and peaceful street, amid lots of trees, lush greenery, flowers, and other charming and unique homes. This tranquil setting is a hidden gem, because it is far enough away from the heartbeat of Oak Bluffs to avoid the noise and congestion, but close enough to enjoy everything. No need for a car, because a lovely, scenic ten minute walk or bike ride will get you to the hub of all that Oak Bluffs has to offer-including, but not limited to the ferry, bus lines, Circuit Avenue, with its quaint shops, and wonderful restaurants and eateries, as well as the harbor, waterfronts, and the beach.
Finally, the owners of Kenney Kottage impressed me. They are awesome and were wonderful and easy to work with. They were very responsive and communicated well and often. We appreciated the helpful home and island hints and found them informative and useful. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us, we look forward to returning!"
