Car: Not Necessary

Great location in Oak Bluffs that is so close--within 5 mins. walk or less --beach, to ferry, to all restaurants, attractions, etc. On a nice quiet street in the Oak Bluff Arts District. The house has parking for up to two cars, but you do not have to have a car given the cottage's location.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I have gone to Martha's Vineyard for the past thirty-plus years, and fall in love with it again each time I come here! There is nothing quite like this Island for its beauty and the feeling of peacefulness (and fun!) it inspires. There is really no place in the world quite like it. Come and see for yourself! :)

Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs, MA, USA:
My fiance and I fell in love with the uniquely Vineyard, particularly Oak Bluffs look and feel of this cottage. It is close to being a campground ( i.e. ginberbread-like) cottages, but about a 2 minute walk from the actual campgrounds, so you get a little more privacy, and breathing space, here. It was designed by a very talented interior designer, and it shows! It's a true vacation cottage in an "upscale style"--not any old house you'd find in the suburbs or anywhere USA. We loved that!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
1) Proximity to Center of Oak Bluffs--fun activities for children, casual and fine dining, bars and pubs, great shops, and to beach! 5 min walk to beach, 7 min walk to town center 2) Walk-able to ferry--no need to bring your car, though 2 spot drive if you do! 3) 5 minute walk to Inkwell Beach! 4) Everything included in house--linens, sheets, bath and beach towels etc, even two bikes for use provided 5) Beautifully designed--special.
