  • A Grand Vacation

    "This was our family's second stay at this location. It was better than the first. We had 4-5 stay here and 4-5 at another location. The grandchildren loved that they could ride bikes around the circle and walk to the bakery and candy store. The adults were happy that the children were happy. Eating and cooking was a little difficult with 9 people but we had the table, backyard table and the porch and we tend to cook some and order out to go with it. Not fun to bring 4 young ones to a restaurant. The house was clean and ready when we arrived. Our only question was about Wi-Fi but Jonathan had checked with us to see if everything was OK and I called and asked for password. My fault I didn't read the booklet on the table. The caretaker also stopped in the first day to check on us. Activities included West Tisbury Farmers Market, fishing at Menemsha, beaches, children's performance of Beauty and the Beast, painting lanterns at Tabernacle , biking, 2 tours Trustees of the Reservation (family friendly)on Chappaquidick, Illumination of the lanterns, fireworks, West Tisbury Agricultural Fair(a real old fashioned fair), Chilmark Flea Market and back door donuts. If you don't have a car or bike, no problem. There are buses that go all over the island at a very reasonable price. Only drawback is the ferry reservations. We didn't call early enough and arrived at 8:00 AM and leaving was at 9:00 PM. Did I mention that the weather was perfect. Loved every minute."

  • Best kept secret...

    "This was my second year staying in this beautiful home, and I cannot wait to stay again next year! I was tempted not to write this review, because this home is such a hidden gem and I don't want to face the competition to rent, once the word gets out! We are 6 adults and 3 young children and could not ask for a more well appointed vacation rental. The kitchen is amazing - with all the modern fixtures and appliances you could ever need, the bedrooms are spacious, the backyard patio is incredible with a great grill, the yards (both front and back) provide plenty of space for the kids to run around, and last but not least - the pool! Our kids lived in the pool during our entire vacation! Add to that the spectacular outdoor shower, and you've got yourself the perfect summer house. The home is centrally located so getting to the center of vineyard haven or oak bluffs takes minutes, there are several beaches nearby, the bike trails run right in front of the house, and the owner has several bikes available for use. The owner is a great guy - very attentive and obviously cares for the home exceptionally well. We can't imagine going to the vineyard and staying anywhere else!"

  • The Perfect Summer Rental in Oak Bluffs

    "Friends and I have rented this wonderful summer home for the past few years and we love it! The location is ideal - a pleasant one block walk to the beach. The rooms are wonderful - generously sized and beautifully appointed. Bathrooms galore - each one modern and updated with shower and tub. The kitchen is a chef's delight - modern appliances, open and roomy for all the talking, laughing and living that goes in the kitchen. Both back doors of the house open to a private, landscaped oasis right in the heart of town - perfect for morning coffee or late afternoon barbecue. This is perfect for a family or a group of friends that love to travel and expect the best of everything. Fully furnished when you arrive with beds made - towels at the ready - beach chairs - and a gift basket from the owners. All you need is your bathing suit. Perfect!"
