Comfortable, large home convenient to Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven
Our group of painters stayed at this very nice home right near the Lagoon in Oak Bluffs. There are 4 comfortable bedrooms with really comfy beds, a full bath upstairs and downstairs, a large, very well equipped kitchen, large dining table, wonderful living room with tv and fireplace, and a big family room adjacent. Also a big back porch and outdoor shower. It's in a residential area, so it's quiet in the evenings, yet very close to both Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven downtowns.
The house was immaculate and fully equipped. It had EVERYTHING we needed to prepare our group breakfasts and evening critique sessions. For linens and towels we used Martha's Linens and we were very happy with the fresh white sheets and fluffy towels. Convenient and easy to arrange.
The host, Ted, was so helpful, responsive and pleasant. Really couldn't ask for more. It had a wonderful time and wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again! Thanks Ted!
Great space for our group
The house had everything we needed. The owners are great. I got a courtesy call to be sure all went smoothly upon arrival and to just give a call if there was anything we needed. Our group had a great time, the location was perfect for our trip.
Our Family had a very enjoyable stay at the Anchor Inn. The home was very spacious, quiet, clean and provided our family with everything we needed while visiting the Island. The location was very accessible to Vineyard Haven and Oaks Bluff. We would definitely book a vacation stay at this Home again!!
The location to friends, families and activities was perfect for our needs
For what we needed the house was ideal. Great location with nearby access to the lagoon and stores. There was plenty of space for the two families that shared the house and the two full baths with the additional outside shower was very useful at times. While as peaple have mentioned it's not a fancy modern home it was exactly what we needed and the family history in the house for me was interesting. The owner was extremely responsive to answer questions or provide any information we needed. He offered to fix the slider door which was tight but we decided we could live with it. The mouring location is also right down the street in the lagoon so if you have a boat it is a very convenient location. I would definately consider staying there again.
Affordable Stay in MV
I would rate this house a 3.5 out of 5, since there are no half stars I rounded up to a 4.
Although this was not my first pick for a house on Martha's Vineyard, this house is very affordable for a trip to the island. My friends and I spent most of our time outdoors exploring the island and stayed indoors during the evenings to relax. The house is between two towns and close to a few bus stops for traveling. Kitchen comes equipped with cooking instruments, utensils, plates, and cups so we were able to cook a few meals. The family room is a very comfortable setting that fits many people, has a large TV, and table to play board games on. I took off one and a half stars only because the bedrooms and beds are small and we had a bug problem one of the nights. But for the price you're paying it is reasonable.
Our family home is located in the quiet “Lagoon” area of Oak Bluffs. We are about a 1.2 mile walk to the center of Oak Bluffs. It is near a bus route but is best to have a car to fully explore the large island of Martha’s Vineyard. The house is right around the corner from the Lagoon that is a 3 mile long body of water that separates Oak Bluffs from Vineyard Haven. It highly recommended to explore along its shore, especially toward the bridge where there is a fun estuary with Osprey. Kayaks are available to rent on the Vineyard Haven side.
We keep a very clean home. I spoke with the renter about the “bug problem” which he said were a few mosquitoes in one of the bed room the first night. I suspect these may have entered the house when they left doors open loading the house. There was no problem after the first night.
We try to maintain communication with the renter. We send a personal email before arrival, have a guide on the house for the renter, and supply a copy of a weekly paper with a basket of various activities on the island. We encourage calls with any questions or for advice. In fact, I had spoken with the renter twice during their 3 day stay.
