About the property

Numerous bus routes from Oak Bluffs allow for easy access to the rest of the island.

We loved the house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in the Summer of 2014 for one week. We loved the house. It is a vintage campground cottage. Yes, the furniture is dated but it has a homey feel. My husband grew up on the vineyard and we know what it is like down there. If you are looking for upscale this is not it. Think "shabby chic" The house has everything you need, a nice bathroom, a full kitchen, a nice outdoor shower, nice porch. You can walk and/or bike into OB for dinner. We had a great time! Also Stacy couldn't be nicer.

The Worst EVER - DON'T WASTE YOUR $$$$

  • 1 of 5

It was so bad we had to find another rental for the week, my kids refused to eat or even sleep there. This house is in need of extreme repair. The pictures most be from at least 5 years ago and it looks like nothing has been done since and I mean dusting, cleaning or scrubbing. There were cobwebs everywhere, thick dust on the floors in the corners, the dining room table I washed 4 times and still wasn't clean. The throw pillows on the couch were stained. The ceiling lights didn't have any fixtures it was just a bulb hanging down. There was food left in the fridge & freezer, used soap left in the showers. The upstairs was just as dirty, I moved the bed to put my sheets on the bed & there was at least 3 inches of dust on the stuff shoved under the bed. The porch off the front bedroom is unusable. We couldn't get out of there fast enough. We wasted 2 days and 1 night of our 1 week vacation trying to find other accommodations!!! The owner did however agree to refund us our money however, 3 weeks later we are still waiting for our money.....Save your money and don't rent this house

Owner's Response: I am sorry the renter was not happy with the house. I have been renting to families via VBRO for 6 years with no complaints. I am proud of my record so I am confused by discontent. The reason being the house had been rented to three other families prior to her arrival and all those renters were happy. I took her complaint seriously so much so I elected to travel to the island to see what I could discover. And what I found bares only a marginal resemblance to her story. Yes the house is old, she and I had a phone call where I specifically told her that the house was old and quaint and she said she understood. Yes there is a moth ball smell and yes there was food in the fridge however it was unopened food. What is so gross about an unopened jar of pickles and an unopened box frozen pizza? Some would consider it a waste to throw away good untouched food. Regarding the dust when I arrived I had to search for any dust. As to “inches” as I mentioned above the house had been rented 3 times prior to her and cleaned 3 times before her arrival. With all those families being there don’t you think someone would have complained about if the house was overrun with dust? Regarding a bedroom with a balcony, the only porch mentioned in the listing is the one on the first floor. Nowhere is the second floor balcony mentioned in the listing because it is not big enough to be considered a true balcony. Additionally the reason for the request to keep off it is for safety. The railing is low and has an open pattern so anyone including kids and dogs can easily get out on the roof. The sign appeared after a dog got out on the roof and jumped off. My additional confusion comes from my contact with here. When we talked the only issues were the dust and the food and her daughter has allergies - nothing else. Only in this review did she mention the electric, which was redone 6 years ago, or balconies or cushions etc.. I really do want all my renters to be satisfied so even though we had a lease which included no refunds I offered to provide the refund since I felt bad about her daughters ‘allergies. My gesture was rewarded with this review. Please see the review for why it was written. Thank you
