Overview

About the property

Relaxed updated beach house

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Our returning guests agree that our homes proximity to downtown Oak Bluffs, beach, shopping, dining, golf and nature walks along with the peaceful, quiet neighborhood setting are the reasons they return every summer! Add in a clean, comfortable house with beach cottage decor and a sunny open floor plan and you can see why ''Leah's Landing'' is such a gem!

Our 1230 square foot home is off the beaten path in a quiet neighborhood. Situated at the end of a private dirt road cul-de-sac, quiet and relaxation abound with the amenities of downtown Oak Bluffs just a stone's throw away. Avoid parking and traffic hassles by taking a fifteen minute stroll or five minute bike ride to all the excitement of Circuit Ave., Ocean Park and Inkwell Beach.

Leah's Landing can accommodate up to 10 with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and an outdoor shower. A first floor master bedroom suite has a private full bath and a daybed that opens to an additional king bed. A second bedroom on the first floor has a queen bed. Upstairs a large, post and beam bedroom has 4 twin beds. The main bathroom and washer/dryer are on the first floor along with a well stocked and newly remodeled kitchen and sunny, open living/dining area with stunning floor to ceiling windows overlooking the private back deck and mature trees. Vaulted wood ceilings create an airy, comfortable feel in the main living space.

*** Please note that we are a dog-friendly rental. Although we take the utmost care to thoroughly clean between guests, we may not be a good fit for those with allergies. *** Also, please be advised that like many island homes we do not have air conditioning, but do provide multiple fans for each room to take advantage of the island breezes. *** And lastly, we want you to have a fantastic time here but please be aware that the house is in a quiet residential neighborhood of year-rounders with young children and they won't tolerate noisy late night partying, so THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE. Renters must be 25+. Respect for our neighbors is a top priority for us! ***

- Newly remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counters

- Pillows, lightweight down comforters, linens, bath and beach towels are provided.

About Rhiannon Fernandes

We are Massachusetts natives with more than 15 years of rental expertise. We pride ourselves in operating a clean, casual and comfortable home where you will make lasting memories during your Martha's Vineyard vacation.

We purchased Leah's Landing in May, 2012 and it is named after our young daughter whom we lost to cancer in 2011. We found respite on the island and fell in love with it's beauty and vibrancy. This beautiful Island helped us make good memories after many difficult ones. We hope your time on the Vineyard is as good for your soul as it has been for ours.

Rhiannon Fernandes purchased this house in 2012

Why Rhiannon Fernandes chose Oak Bluffs

Oak Bluffs is the most lively town on the Vineyard and it has a really fun vibe. From the ocean, to the arts district, multiple parks, and even a microbrewery, this little beach town has something for everyone! A 15 minute walk from our house will have you amidst the hustle and bustle of downtown Oak Bluffs' gingerbread cottages, restaurants, shopping, beaches, harbor and more. When you need to put your feet up, head back to the quiet sanctuary of the house and soak in the relaxation of our peaceful neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Leah's Landing has everything you need for a stress-free vacation, with lots of little extras to make it feel like home. The location and charming interior of this home can't be beat; quiet and secluded off a private dirt road, yet close enough to walk to everything Oak Bluffs has to offer. We invite you to enjoy our personal guide to all the excellent spots we have discovered and experience them from a locals point of view. You won't be disappointed!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home was perfect for a relaxing stay in Martha's Vineyard. It is situated on a small, quiet side street not too far from Oak Bluffs restaurants and shopping. (We drove but you could walk it in probably 15 - 20 minutes.) The house had everything we needed and more. We were out and about most days but if we had decided to stay in for the day there was plenty to do at the house (wi-fi, cable, wii system etc.). I'd highly recommend this home!! The owners were great and the house was even better than the description!!

Open and Airy, full of light

  • 5 of 5

Very clean with open modern kitchen to dining and livingroom with cathedral ceiling to large lofted balcony and very large 4 bed sleeping room. It had everything anyone would need, and most interestingly, when you looked for it, it was there. Very intuitive owner who placed everything in all the right places. Close enough to everything, yet in quiet neighborhood in Oak Bluffs. Would definitely rent again!

Leah's Landing a perfect place for vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Leah's Landing for a week in September. The house is bright and clean. It is located a short walk from Oak Bluff and all the shops and restaurants there. We had a wonderful time and also appreciated all the suggestions the that the owners wrote in the guest binder. The outdoor shower was awesome!

Had an great Fourth of July getaway at Leah's Landing!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Leah's Landing over the Fourth of July holiday. The location is perfect because it is a short walk/bike ride to the everything in downtown Oak's Bluff and yet it is very peaceful and relaxing at the house. We had a lot of fun trips to the waterfront where all the restaurants and shopping are. The house makes you feel instantly comfortable and at home. It has been updated very nicely and is very bright, open and clean. I absolutely loved the giant windows and the big back deck! The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and there is even a small market (Tony's) that is just a 2 minute walk from the house. I also loved that there are two bathroom, they stock the beach and bath towels, and there is even an outdoor shower. This place is perfect for couples with kids or groups of friends...or really anybody! We hope to return very soon for another visit!!!
