About kelly brilliant
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! :)
kelly brilliant purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why kelly brilliant chose Oak Bluffs
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!
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

Cute, warm and provides everything you need. We stayed for a girls weekend away and it was perfect of our group. The walking distance to town was so convenient. We enjoyed drinks and apps on the front porch. Their collection of vinyl record albums added a fun touch of nostalgia that we enjoyed for hours. Homeowners were accommodating and easy to coordinate with. Overall, a great experience.
Cute cottage, fantastic location
This was a lovely place to spend a weekend at the end of September. We brought our car, but it would have been easy to walk and bike every where we wanted to go on the island. The cottage had more than enough room for my family of 3 and could have comfortably fit another person or 2. There were some low ceilings (challenging for my tall husband), and there is only one bathroom on the first floor, which was fine for us, but may be difficult for some.
Thank you so much for your lovely review, Heather! And your great care of the cottage. Please come again! Kelly
Cozy Cottage - Lovely Location
Having spent time on The Vineyard during my college years I knew location was going to be important returning to Oak Bluffs for the first time in 20 years for my honeymoon.
The location is perfect on a number of fronts. We arrived via Hyannis in to Oak Bluffs harbor and took the short walk up Dukes County Ave (10 mins max) from the harbor. Alternatively, if you come in via Woods Hole and the Steamship Authority, it too is only 10 minutes walk away. The house is a short 5 minute walk away from Circuit Avenue and the center of Oak Bluffs where you can do a grocery shop in the Old Reliable store or enjoy the numerous restaurants and bars. Additionally you are only a 5-10 minute walk from the Oak Bluffs beach depending which route you take. Alternatively, you can avail of the bikes available at the house and travel that little bit further to State beach on the way to Edgartown. If you run out of any groceries, you are only 3 minutes away from Tony's Market where you can top your groceries up or grab some beer or wine to enjoy at the house.
The house was very cosy. The kitchen is well finished with a large refrigerator/freezer to stock your groceries with enough utensils there to allow you to cook almost anything. There is also a large dishwasher available to save time with dishes. The livingroom was also spacious, however, my wife and I spent most of our time on the porch, with the candles lit, listening to the excellent vinyl collection, watching the world go by. We found the bedroom was comfortable and spacious as we used the spare room for our luggage etc.
I would highly recommend this house purely for it's location and for it's proximity to (a) the ferry terminals (b) the bars and restaurants on Circuit Avenue and (c) the beaches for families - and couples for that matter. As we are located in Europe, unfortunately MV is not on our doorstep, so when the time comes for my wife and I to return we will seriously consider using this house again.
We found the owner very polite and quick to respond to all and any of our queries as they arose.

Thank you, Colin and Tracey! We too love the location of the cottage. Glad you were able to enjoy our record collection! Porch sitting is one of the joys of Oak Bluffs. Please come back when you are 'state side' again!
Affordable and Charming Cottage in Oak Bluffs
My friends and I had a wonderful stay on Martha's Vineyard. It was a beautiful weekend and I recommend the island to anyone who's interested in a truly unique place with a distinct New England architectural heritage and unmatched natural beauty. The cottage was a perfect place to rest our heads and prepare for a long day of exploration. The property is located in Oak Bluffs, which is a town/village comprised of hundreds of Victorian style cottages, each unique in their own way. This cottage a little outside of town and situated next to an artist community that open the doors to their galleries on the weekends. The cottage a lovely outdoor shower, new kitchen, and comfortable rooms. Kelly was responsive and a good host. We didn't have any issues. Lastly, if you want beach front access this isn't the place for you. With that said, you can walk 5 minutes to Oak Bluffs beach....or if you prefer the island has a number of cab companies. Enjoy your stay!
P.S. If you have time and money I would recommend Outermost Inn for dinner and drinks. Its on the opposite side of the island near Gay Head beach but its well worth the trip.
Lovely guests! Matthew, I hope you can stay again. It's so nice when someone so gets the Island, and the cottage! Very appreciated!
And after 30 years, I've never been to Outermost Inn so will check out next week! Thanks for tip!
Great Vinyard cottage for our family of 3!
This cottage is centrally located in a great neighborhood. It is creatively decorated and fully equipped. The rooms were comfortable for our small family. The outdoor shower was a wonderful treat! The landscaping could be updated and the road was a bit busy at times. Would definitely recommend this vacation rental to those seeking a place to relax and unwind after a day of Vineyard fun!
Thanks, Jessica, and yes regarding the landscaping! Next project on our list hopefully by next season it will be! Please come again!
Great vacation! Adorable house and great location! Would definitely come stay again
We enjoyed our whole time at the flip flop house - our dog did too! We'll definitely be returning
Thank you, Mia!
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.
