About Jessica Balboni Gonzalez

Our parents built this as our summer home in 1988, and eventually retired here where they lived until 2012. This has been our family home since 1988 and the land and adjacent home has been in our family for four generations. We summered on the vineyard where our grandmother lived since the day we were born. It is a special place for us with many wonderful memories.

Jessica Balboni Gonzalez purchased this house in 1988

Why Jessica Balboni Gonzalez chose Oak Bluffs

We love this house and enjoy coming here all throughout the year and wish to keep this special home and all its wonderful memories in the family.

What makes this house unique

Because this is a family home, it has been treated with tender loving care and the people who come here feel welcome and comfortable as if it were their own home.

Wonderful Home! Wonderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent trip to Martha's Vineyard. Jessica's home was perfect for our family. It was comfortable, charming and quaint. We had such a peaceful stay in a quiet neighborhood conveniently located within walking distance of Circuit Avenue. We highly recommend this property. You'll love it!

Nice, clean, family friendly home close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at this home. It was spacious, comfortable, and clean, which was important to me since I was traveling with small kids. The backyard was a nice treat as it allowed for dinners on the patio and ample room for my three year old to run and play. The home was perfectly located close to everything, a quick 5-10 min drive to both Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. My sister even walked to OB from the house so it’s possible. The owner was very responsive, and even provided a pack and play for my baby to use. This is a very nice home that we look forward to booking again.

Amazing stay at a beautiful house in Oaks Bluffs

  • 5 of 5

Just minutes from OB center, this beautiful house is extremely well kept house inside and out. The house is spacious, has a well manicured yard, and a large family room where we gathered every night. We are very particular and a bit of OCD when it comes to cleanliness and this house met/ exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a beautiful place minutes from OB. The owner was very attentive and responsive.

very comfortable beds

Loved the quiet street and the ability to walk to everything in town

The well stocked kitchen made cooking much easier and enough space on a rainy day so we could play games and enjoy the large living room. Outdoor shower was fun as well as biking on the rental bikes. Would rent again if we vacation on MV in the future. B
