Close Enough to Town
"We had a wonderful stay! It seemed FAR on the first day, since we decided to walk with our luggage. But after that, we were able to walk back and forth to the center of town (Circuit Ave shops) in about 15 - 20 minutes. It is definitely a mile, but a straight shot. Cabs were a different price every time we took one, from only $7 for one person from the ferry, to $21 for five of us to Nancy's. Tip - we found a convenience store that was closer to the house that saved us from having to go into town more. It is called Tony's and it also has better hours, a deli and wine/beer!
The hammock out back was one of my favorite spots. It is definitely a nice location - the last house on a dirt road, so no traffic or worries about cars once there. Our only concern was walking the dirt path at night, so we made sure to be inside or cab it after dark.
The only drawbacks are 1) the extremely narrow spiral staircase to the lower level (heavy-set people probably cannot use it, nor can you take your luggage down it) and 2) the second bedroom downstairs is in between the first bedroom and the bathroom, so keep in mind that you will have to pass through that person's bedroom to use it. Works fine if it is a kid, not an adult who needs privacy. There is also a water heater inside the bathroom.
Other than that, it was perfect for our girls' getaway! The owner and his property managers were very responsive and helpful. We will definitely stay there again."

"Having never before rented via VRBO or any comparable site, I was a bit nervous going in on this rental. I had a great experience, due in large part to Nathan & Cheryl who were friendly, prompt, and responsive -- from initial inquiry to finalizing the return of the security deposit. The house itself was great: clean, well-stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. While at the Vineyard I like to have at least one good home-cooked meal a day, and the kitchen had everything necessary for grilling & cooking a feast. I also was pleasantly surprised to find a great blender for protein shakes! Pool was a nice bonus for the kids, and there was lots of deck space to spread out and relax. A few minor caveats: there really only is room for just one car, so any guests will have limited space to park. And I really wish I could have brought my dog!
After reading the review of the renter before me, I can honestly say I didn't share his experience, except that there was one night where the neighbors were partying pretty late. The broken gate was fixed the day we arrived, and the yard looked great. As for location, I personally liked being right between Vineyard Haven & Oak Bluffs. I took lots of long bike rides (20+ miles), but would bring my bike via car to the trail, because I don't believe that riding on MV roads, many with limited shoulders, has ever been particularly safe.
All in all, a great place! Would definitely recommend."

"Our fourth year renting this beautiful house for two weeks. As usual the house was in tip-top shape and every year additions and changes have been addressed for a perfect stay. Owner is very open to suggestions made by renters and follows through. Our favorite part is spending time with family and friends on the porch with a beautiful view. We really feel like we are coming home when we arrive. This property is highly recommended!
Looking forward to next year :-)"

"My family stayed at this wonderful beach loft for our family reunion. Although Kim did not greet us upon arrival, she was a wonderful owner and met our every need.
The sound system wasn't compatible with our iPhones and she purchased a new Bose system for us the very next day! Anything we needed or requested she provided.
The space was freshly cleaned and wonderfully decorated. It is perfect for a group of family or friends to spend time together yet have their own privacy in the bedrooms. There is also a great mini loft space above one of the bedrooms that is perfect for pre-teens to sleep and hang out. The photos do not do this place justice. It is very large and spacious.
The home is fully stocked with EVERYTHING you need from linens, soap, laundry detergent, beach chairs & towels to propane for the amazing grill! It is a perfect home to host a small gathering while visiting as well because of the amazing yard space and deck. The location is walking distance to the main street in town, Circuit Ave and a quick dive to the beach. We would definitely recommend this property!"
