The Perfect Getaway
"This is a great property. It is walking distance to town, but far enough away that the only people passing through are people living/staying in the area. We were lucky to find this rental available only 2 months before labor day weekend. The house was perfect for our party of 6 (3 couples) with 3 cozy bedrooms upstairs and a nice living area/kitchen downstairs. Everything about the description was accurate and we were pleased to find that there were more than enough towels and other necessities, plus a few nice unexpected surprises.
Being on Martha's Vineyard for the first time, we wanted to venture out and explore. We rented bikes near the dock in Oak Bluffs and rode down the shoreline towards Edgartown. On the way, we spotted a few places we would later revisit; A kayak rental spot, a 'buck-a-shuck' oyster deal at a hotel/country club, and a bridge clearly marked "no jumping" with tons of kids and adults jumping off into the water below. We kept riding until we reached Edgartown and one of the guys in our party spotted a sign for beer tastings. We wound up spending a few hours at a great local brewery called Bad Martha's. The atmosphere was great...and so was the beer. They had plates to nosh on, games to play, and flights of beer to drink. Afterwards we kept going further into Edgartown but eventually turned back to return the bikes. That night, on the advice of one of the employees of the brewery, we checked out a really cool bar in Oak Bluffs called The Loft. It was packed with a good assortment of drinks and an even better assortment of games to play. I would definitely recommend checking out The Loft.
The next day, we ventured out and started to walk the same path we biked the day before with no specific plans. We ended up renting kayaks and kayaking towards the jumping bridge from the day before. We pulled the kayaks up on the beach and went through many, many rounds of jumps off the bridge. It was exhilarating. On the way back, we stopped at the hotel/country club for buck-a-shuck ($1 each) oysters. The night ended with a grand BBQ at the house.
The next, and last day, we grabbed a leisurely brunch by the docks and then headed to the local beach for one last day in the sun. The air was hot but the water was cool. After a while there, it was time to catch one last lobster dinner and take the ferry home.
Thanks to the property owners and property manager who helped make our great weekend happen!"

"This was a wonderful gem, spacious, clean, with all the amenities. The best part was Sharon who was totally accessible and went over and beyond to make my 10th wedding anniversary surprise magical. She made this one of my most memorable trips to the vineyard......highly recommended rental."

"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 LOVED this house!! Can't wait to return to our Vineyard home!
"This house was meant to be for my group of 14 and it was the perfect fit!
This was not my first time to MVY, but my first time renting a house through VRBO abd I was nervous to say the least! I had planned a tril for 18-20 people and our first house was a no go due to drop off. It is hard to find an affordable house for an unusual number of people (13-14) only a week or two away from travel. Luckily, I saw the great reviews for this beautiful blue house and reached out to the owner, who was so accomodating and prompt with responses. Joe was defInitely a delight to work with from start to finish, giving helpful suggestions for travel and once I received the contract I knew that I had made the right choice!
I cannot express enough how perfectly this house is located. Circuit Avenue, with all of the shops, nightlife and restaurants, is literally at the corner and one short block into the scene, but the house is tucked away on its block so you still have peace and quiet. The house is also a five minute walk to the water/beach and maybe a short 10 minute walk to the Ferry. We didn't need a car to get around. My group rented bikes to visit Vineyard Haven and Edgartown and simply walked into town for shopping.
The pictures do not do this house justice at all!! It is absolutely beautiful and well layed out. The huge porch has enough seating for 10 people. We watched the Blood Moon rising on the porch with wine and dinner and a beautiful view. There is a grassy park across from the house as well as a tennis and basketball court. The side of the house has a high quality gas grill and picnic table perfect for a bbq.
There are three different staircases from the main floor leading to the comfortable bedrooms and it is such a pleasant surprise. All the rooms in this house are tastefully decorated with inviting colors. The bedroom on the main floor is my fav. It truly felt like home.
There are two living rooms/living room and den with open space layout and french doors for privacy. The living room is very cozy, with smart tv, cable and dvd player. The den has a built in book case with games and such. We often fell asleep in these rooms and the house is so relaxing that our group of thirtysomwthings were falling asleep before 10pm! The dining room easily seats 15 people we spent a lot of time enjoying meals at the tables and cooking in the grand kitchen. All in all, we LOVED it and will rent again!"
