Recent Oak Bluffs reviews

  • Great Location!!

    "This house was just perfect for my family! My mother in law had her bedroom on the first floor with a bathroom across the way. Our bedroom and the kid's bedroom were upstairs with our own bathroom. The house is in a great location too - just a mile away from the center of town! We enjoyed walking to Oak Bluffs Center as we didn't have to deal with looking for a parking space. Ample yard space and the outdoor shower was a great addition for when we would come back all sandy from a day at the beach. :) This place was a gem and we hope to return next year!"

  • Wonderful cottage!

    "Billie is great to work with, the house is very clean, kitchen is well appointed & the yard is lovely! It was so nice to be able to bring our dog on vacation. The location is close to everything. We have rented on MV for the last 20 yrs in this price category & this home is by far the best! Hope we can return next year!"

  • Grande Dame

    "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."
