Cozy & Comfy

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I truly enjoyed our stay at Nathan's & Cheryl's home. It was cozy and comfortable - well furnished, containing essential amenities, incl. air conditioning. The pool and outdoor seating were a bonus. And, being perfectly situated between OB and VH make it easy to enjoy the island (with a car). I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge how accommodating, responsive and helpful Nathan and Cheryl were. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay in their home again.

Our family had a great week in this perfect house

  • 5 of 5

What are your biggest fears when you rent a house like this? It won't look as nice as the pictures, it'll be dirty, stuff won't work. We had some great communication with the owners prior to arriving at their house in Oak Bluffs for a weeklong family vacation so we felt confident, but still you never know.

Turns out the place is 100% as advertised, and we had a really wonderful time. The house was spotless (in fact the cleaning staff was leaving as we arrived), comfortable, had a great little kitchen, and the pool was crystal clear. I cannot remember a single complaint we had. Even if we had a problem, the owners are fantastic people on top of their email so anything could've been straightened out quickly.

No need to sell you on MV if you're looking at this, but we'll say the location was pretty good. 5 minutes or so to town.

Cozy cottage, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Having never before rented via VRBO or any comparable site, I was a bit nervous going in on this rental. I had a great experience, due in large part to Nathan & Cheryl who were friendly, prompt, and responsive -- from initial inquiry to finalizing the return of the security deposit. The house itself was great: clean, well-stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. While at the Vineyard I like to have at least one good home-cooked meal a day, and the kitchen had everything necessary for grilling & cooking a feast. I also was pleasantly surprised to find a great blender for protein shakes! Pool was a nice bonus for the kids, and there was lots of deck space to spread out and relax. A few minor caveats: there really only is room for just one car, so any guests will have limited space to park. And I really wish I could have brought my dog!

After reading the review of the renter before me, I can honestly say I didn't share his experience, except that there was one night where the neighbors were partying pretty late. The broken gate was fixed the day we arrived, and the yard looked great. As for location, I personally liked being right between Vineyard Haven & Oak Bluffs. I took lots of long bike rides (20+ miles), but would bring my bike via car to the trail, because I don't believe that riding on MV roads, many with limited shoulders, has ever been particularly safe.

All in all, a great place! Would definitely recommend.

We rented this house for a week in August 2015. We were impressed by the pictures and reviews. I will give my pros and cons for this house,

Pros: It has a fully equipped kitchen if you choose to cook and it is a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances. This house has wood floors in the downstairs area only. One bed/bath downstairs. Master bed/bath upstairs. Pool is a plus! Air conditioning is nice! Fairly clean!

Cons: The pictures make this house look pristine on the outside. It is not! The driveway and walkway to house is covered in weeds as is the backyard. It needs attention. The broken down sailboat in the driveway is an eyesore. The sailboat was eliminated from the picture. The house had two air conditioners which is a plus but the one downstairs does not cool off the bedroom. House is surface clean but needs a good cleaning. I pulled out the toaster and there were crumbs from the renters before us. Wall under counter was splattered with food and kitchen needed to be wiped down.

Mattress in upstairs bedroom was not the best. Outdoor fence to pool was not working properly and the water slide hose was broken. You can not walk/ bike Safely to town or beach. You must go down New York Avenue which has no sidewalks. You are very secluded from town and beach. Must have a car! Also one day the neighbors who were not renters played loud music all day and were partying on the porch. This house is in a residential area and some of the houses are very run down.

Perfect House - Perfect Location - Awesome Pool

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible family vacation in this quiet house at the end of a road, yet close to town. The house is well taken care of and CLEAN!! Nathan and Cheryl are helpful and quick to reply! All the essentials were provided. Enjoyed our breakfast by the pool each morning as we watched the kids play in the pool. It was nice to end the day with the outdoor shower. We had bikes delivered to the house and explored the island. The air conditioning was a plus too! Will definitely be back next year! Highly recommend this rental!!

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

For any family seeking the perfectly appointed and located property on Martha's Vineyard, you need not look any further. Set directly between two island hot spots and ferry ports (Vineyard Haven/Oak Bluffs), this home delivers all you could want and more. With a private pool (gated and w/slide), as well as a fully stocked home with all the amenities (WiFi, laundry, a/c, tvs/DVD players, outdoor shower, whirlpool tub, board games, and wrap around exterior deck), there is no other location for the perfect family vacation. Rise and shine and head to Oak Bluffs for coffee/tea and muffins before heading out on an adventure hike, bike or walk to any of the area beaches/ponds (Sengy, State, etc.). Or, simply pull up your deck chair, book and cold beverage as you lounge in the private pool area to soak up the sun without leaving your house! Bait shop (for fishing/clamming gear) and gas station in walking distance, and location allows guest to avoid the main drags (and traffic congestion) courtesy of back road access.

We've stayed at this property several summers and our children (under 10 years) love it. Just enough room to spread out, yet still be together. Nathan and Cheryl, the home owners and hosts, are incredibly responsive, organized and thoughtful. They do their utmost to ensure that their guests are taken care of--from home cleanliness to information about island activities. If you need something, simply ask and your hosts will do all they can to make your vacation as memorable as possible.

For those without a car or with older children, be aware that this location is set back away from the main roads and 'action.' However, for families with younger children, this is the perfect (and we do mean perfect) location. You can stay on property and enjoy family time, or leverage it as a 'home base' for every adventure you can imagine (hiking trails, kayaking, clamming, beach, swimming, lighthouse tours or even a second ferry ride to Chappy).

We highly recommend the property and even more highly recommend the hosts, Nathan and Cheryl, who seem to have renting down to a science.
