Recent Oak Bluffs reviews
The Reviews are Spot On
"We read the reviews before we booked. They are spot on. The best part of this house is the location. If you want to be in the country - book elsewhere. If you want to be in the heart of town - book this one. Our family had never been to Martha's Vineyard before, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to start. Everything, and I do mean everything, is easy to get to from this house. We took the ferry that goes into Oak Bluffs and it let us off practically across the street from this house. We walked about 4 minutes to get there. We spent our time on the island mainly exploring Oak Bluffs. We walked to the beach, to Circuit Avenue (the "Main Street" of Oak Bluffs), to the Gingerbread Cottages, the harbor, and of course, the Flying Horses Carousel. When we were ready to see Edgartown, we took the bus that leaves from in front of the house, and we were there in 20 minutes. The house is great too. It is the old 1800s Victorian - but made to be comfortable for modern living. My wife left her Prada sunglasses there (a major crisis!) and the honest house cleaners found them, and owner (Teresa) made arrangements for them to be returned by courier overnight. Would book again. Great for families."

"We had a wonderful vacation staying at the townhouse. It was a perfect place for my husband and I to take our 2 kids and my mother on vacation. My kids loved having their own room and my husband and I were right down the hall with the most comfortable bedding and pillows I have ever slept with. My mom had a wonderful first floor bedroom that let her have a little personal space. We loved using the golf cart to go to the private beach, many days we were the only ones there, it was beautiful! We can't wait to come back again. When we arrived Paul was there to show us around and show us around the neighborhood. We enjoyed this place to its fullest with fishing, tennis, swimming, beach and lots of beautiful stones and shells to be found."

"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."

"We used to visit the Vineyard annually before we had children; staying in my brother in laws house in Edgartown. This was our first visit back in 15 years and we couldn't wait to show our children what we loved about this island. My dream was to return and stay in a cottage in the Camp Grounds. This cottage was perfect for our family. It was close enough to walk to Circuit Avenue and everything we wanted in Oak Bluffs yet removed from the center Tabernacle area so it was quiet and private. The neighbors are friendly and helpful and the owner was great. She answered all our questions quickly before our trip. Though quaint, the cottage was big enough for our family of 4. We loved the porch for sitting out in the evenings and the back deck was perfect for outdoor dining for meals we prepared in the well stocked kitchen. Having TV and internet, though not necessary for me on vacation, was a must to entertain 2 children in our down time. We can't wait to return to MV again in the future."
