What makes this house unique

Located off the bike path is a wonderful benefit for travel without a car. A quick walk to one of the land bank properties and wooded walking trails. Just over a mile into the town center makes it convenient for walking or biking to town. A short walk to the lagoon to catch beautiful sunsets!

This was the perfect spot for a late summer getaway for me and my Sweetie! We felt right at home!

  • 5 of 5

Cute, comfy and Martha's Vineyard cottage cozy with every amenity for today's lifestyle. (WI-FI and multiple cable tv's all worked great!). Close to all down island towns, on the bike path . Close enough to Oak Bluffs center without the crush of the crowd.

Open concept for gathering, yet the three bedrooms where nicely separated to allow for privacy if you go with others. We were just two, this home was such a better choice than a hotel room or a B&B. It was wonderful to come "home" after the beach or a bike ride or during the rainy day, and spread out in this well appointed cottage.

Don't miss the outdoor shower. We used it everyday, turns out, its big enough for two!

I would highly recommend this cottage to couples, families or small groups. You will enjoy your stay.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation home! Kitchen has everything you need. Loved having the gas grill.

Just over a mile from town so you can walk but the bus stop is pretty much right outside the driveway.

The outdoor shower was an added bonus. Bedrooms were clean and comfortable with air conditioners in the each so it's super comfortable sleeping. Quiet neighborhood too.

The owner left a vase of flowers which was a very nice touch. Will definitely stay again!

No Frills Home on Martha's Vineyard

  • 3 of 5

This was a very simple house, nothing wrong with that at all. The owner was very attentive and responsive to questions (thank you for that).

It was not as clean as I would have liked, but I think that has to do with the age of the home. For example there we several screens that had tears in them so flys would come into the house. No central air, but there are in room ACs for the bedrooms.

It was a little unsafe getting out of the driveway due to the overgrowth of the bushes. It is on a main road so our kids could not ride bikes easily outside as we would have liked. The backyard was good size so we were able to throw the baseball around in the back and that was great.

Location was amazing central to everything we wanted to do.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, Scott. I am sorry that you did not have a great experience at my house, but it is good to know what you liked and did not like about my property. I hope you, your wife & kids, and your in-laws enjoyed your visit to Martha's Vineyard.

Wonderful, clean, looks I even better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

I planned a girls' weekend for 6 and this place was perfect for our Oak Bluffs stay. We originally had 7 ladies scheduled to come and had a last minute cancellation which work out b/c we would have been very tight with 7. The rooms were cute and cozy with TVs. Proximity to town was decent. We walked to town once which was okay but then one from our group arrived with a car which was better for going out in the evening and comfortably visit other towns on the island. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for my friends and I over Memorial Day weekend. It was close enough to town to be convenient, but far enough away that to be more peaceful. Everything was nice, clean, cozy and welcoming. Megan made everything very easy. We will definitely be coming back!

Awesome hospitality. Centrally located btwn Oak Bluffs/Vineyard Haven. Walking distance to Oak Bluff

  • 5 of 5

Megan was an exceptional host, leaving fresh flowers and a bottle of wine upon our arrival. The home was spotless and had all the amenities needed - particularly with three teenagers! Wifi was a must-have, and Megan didn't disappoint! Thankfully, all the bedrooms had air conditioning. The house was within walking distance to downtown Oak Bluffs, within 20 minutes. However, the bus to Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven and Edgartown was right outside the front door; convenient for teenagers. Linens were included! I can't think of one single thing that could have improved our stay because we had it all! Thank you Megan. I'll definitely be back!

Owner's Response: It was great to work with you Leslie. Glad that you and your family enjoyed the trip to Martha's Vineyard, and that my house met everyone's needs. The public bus is a great option for travel and convenient location from the house. Look forward to having you return.
