Recent Oak Bluffs reviews
Just love this house!
"My family has stayed here four summers in a row. Between kids, friends, and parents, we never know quite how many people will be with us, but always find the perfect room for everybody of all ages. It's a peaceful, beautiful, and quiet setting, yet we can walk to town in minutes for food, entertainment, and fun. We use the kayak in the pond (and brought a stand up paddle board this year). Being so close to the bike path is a huge plus, and after our busy, busy, days - there's nothing better than relaxing on the porch with a view of the water. Barry and Jamie live on the island, and are available/responsive if we ever need anything (which is very rare). The kitchen has everything we need, linens/towels are abundant, and the outdoor shower is delightful. We have been coming to MV for many years, and this house has been our favorite by far!"

"Just finished a three night stay at this home with 12 people (10 adults - 40's-50's, and 2 tweens). I would have to work hard to come up with a complaint! This group has rented many homes on the island over the past 20 years and this one has risen the ranks of absolute favorites.
Things I loved:
- multiple "wings" for sleeping; people really could have a little bit of privacy away from the big group.
- dining set up totally accommodated our big group
- 2 fridges: One for food, one for adult beverages! Brilliant!
- off street parking for our 3 cars, very safe
- the home is decorated beautifully, great colors on the wall, feels very homey. This house really LOOKS like the pictures!
- the house was clean, well taken care of, and the owner obviously spends the offseason investing money and elbow grease to get it in shape.
- the location is great -- very close to circuit ave and all the great shopping and eating that OB has to offer, the beach, and, of course, to Back Door Donuts. You really don't need a car to enjoy a great weekend here.
I'd point out that the bathrooms are a bit small; if you're a larger-bodied crowd, one or two of the toilets may feel a bit closed in for you. I'd also mention that there is a cool bedroom in the back with 3 twin beds, but you wouldn't put little kids in that space, unless you were confident in their ability to navigate tricky stairs. (You might also not put drunk adults in there, for the same reason :-) )
Finally, the owner was very collaborative with communication as the trip came upon us, and was SUPER responsive to any of my questions. He was a real joy to work with!
I would not hesitate to rent this place again!"

"Love the house, the porch, the fresh tomatoes in the garden, the clothesline.. everything. Also the location as we could walk to Vineyard Haven downtown for anything we wanted whether groceries, kids beach, coffee shops....
My grand-daughter loved the closet with the built in bed! fit her and her stuffed animal friends very comfortably. And the owners were so EASY to deal with and cared!!!!"

"We had a wonderful week-long stay in this ample and yet cosy cottage in walking distance of Oak Bluffs' historical gingerbread houses and commercial district. Set in a small enclave of tree-lined and flowered non-paved streets, we felt transported to sweet, mellow by-gone days and yet were so close to all of Oak Bluffs zesty distractions. A plus when you are travelling with teens. The upper bedrooms are small but nicely appointed and comfy, the kitchen is ample and very well equipped. Great washer/dryer and outside shower but the main draw here are the outside spaces: the canopied terrace out back and, my favorite, the front porch. Mornings and cocktail hour were incredibly relaxing there... We were told by a nice neighbor that the owners upgrade the house every year and the results show. Bravo ! If I may venture a suggestion for future upgrades: it would be nice to make the interiors more allergy-free by removing carpets and feathered upholstery which do not fare well in a humid sea-side environment. This is not a critique, because the house is lovely. Just a thought... Thank you for sharing your historical cottage with the rest of us, city dwellers from the mainland !"
