Recent Oak Bluffs property reviews

  • Fantastic Family Retreat

    "We took our first vacation in 3 years, and the first as a family of 4, this past summer. We picked Martha's Vineyard randomly and had very little knowledge of the island. When we first inquired about properties, Molly was the first to respond and immediately began making the trip easy by offering a crib for our son, toys for both kids, beach umbrellas, etc. The house is a beautiful gingerbread home. The inside is decorated beautifully and the wrap around porch is fantastic. Our almost two year old proved to be more of a handful than we anticipated, so we spent a lot of time at the house. We made lots of meals and enjoyed our time sitting on the porch, reading books, playing games, etc. Our kids (5 and almost 2) loved exploring the house and the huge yard. We were a 10 minute bike ride from the center Oak Bluffs and, with another 5 minute ride, we could be to State Beach. We even rode to Edgartown one day, pulling both our kids. The best part of the trip was the concierge-like service provided by Molly. She gave us the best recommendations and must-dos for our week on MV. Everything she told us about was a huge hit with us - she had recommendations specific to the kids, for the family, and for the adults, for a night out. When we shared our trip details with people who had been to MV in the past, they were amazed that we hit the spots we did and impressed with our tour of the island. The entire week was fabulous and we are already anxious to get back to MV. This is a great house and a great resource for anyone who really wants to experience all that the island has to offer."

  • Beautiful Rental

    "Much better deal than staying in a hotel. Full stocked kitchen, full living room, and nice size deck meant plenty of room for the whole clan, ability to save money by cooking in or outside on the grill – which we did multiple times. House is spacious with all the comforts of a home (cable TV, WiFi, patio set, etc.) including an outdoor shower, which we enjoyed using, remains me of the Caribbean, Convenient to all areas of the island (quiet road just off a main connecting road). Easy biking distance to Oak Bluffs center and multiple beaches. Short ride to Vineyard Haven, where we picked up groceries at Stop & Shop and some fresh seafood at Net Results. Would definitely stay here again."

  • Small, but enjoyable

    "The house was in a convenient location - walked East Chop & into Oak Bluffs (< 1 mile) each day. House was small (especially bathrooms), but clean. Kitchen was well equipped. Yard was too small for 11 year old boys to play in. Wished we could have enjoyed front porch more, but it was quite slanted. Owner and caretaker were easy to work with. Overall we had a great stay."

  • Perfect week on the Vineyard !!!

    "Perfect week on the Vineyard !!! We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival to the home as the property was sparkling clean and ready for our stay. We were a large group (19) made up of brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews ranging in ages from 14 – 55. The house was set in a great location nestled in the woods with lots of privacy from the neighbors. The house was huge offering plenty of space for sleeping and/or just hanging out. There were several areas scattered throughout the house for watching TV and/or to read a book (I pad). One space in particular was the couch and TV set up in the kitchen, as the boyz would huddle around the TV watching the sox game and be only steps away from the frig. For the young adults, they had a couple of spaces that they really enjoyed. The first was the game room (lower level) and the “MAN” cave in the garage which was set up with yet another seating area. The location was ideal (for the value) meaning if the property was on the ocean, you would be looking at double the rental cost. So you get the best of both worlds, with a just a short walk to the beach. The private beach is just a 10 minute walk and/or a 5 minute walk to tennis and basketball. The beach was great, with no crowds and plenty of room to play. Access to sea kayaks was an added value. By car, you were a 10 minute drive from either Oaks Bluff of Edgartown were you had access to shops and restaurants. Pros – Location with easy access to all Size of house and common areas spaces Central A/C (worked great) Private beach (access) Outside space (deck/yard) Plenty of parking Trash/recycle removal every other day 2 – full size Refrigerators Cons - Bath towels (a little tired) Mattress’s (in a few bedrooms) could use an upgrade 2 grills good - on the smaller side – not so good All in all…. Excellent Value. Looking to rebook for next summer"
