Recent Oak Bluffs reviews

  • Cozy cottage, great amenities

    "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."

  • Location, Capacity & Value

    "We are pretty familiar with MV. 11 of us ages 7 To 76. We are kind of "professional renters" in coastal MA and Lakes of NH spanning the last 12 years. Other reviews on this site capture the gist of this place. I will fill in some specifics that our troop found. Pros & Cons. PROS: owner was very responsive to communications. Holds 15 people. Excellent value to occupancy ratio c/t other rentals in this area. Good location just off Circuit. Off street parking for 3 SUVs. Easy on street parking immediately in front of house (Can't stress this feature enough in OB). Dining room seating capacity and arrangement. Twice weekly trash pick-up (many good trash barrels and recycling barrels). Park across street (under construction). Great outdoor showers (lichen adds character). Excellent TVs (3). AC (central other than window box in room with the 3 twin beds). 2 good full size fridge/freezers. Good WIFI. Bedding and house towels provided. Combo Doorknob lockbox for keys. It is unreasonable to compare the fit, finish and features of a typical $11,000/ week rental to this home at about half the rate. That being said there is some info that other renters may find helpful. CONS: Overall there is a "Sarah Winchester Mystery House" feel to the place. This could pose problems to small children and mobility impared adults. Build quality and design are not strong features of this house. Fit and finish are the same. Stairs are narrow and steep. Toilets may require "side saddle" technique to use. Many doors do not close properly and privacy locks are not available. No master bedroom (no en suite). Upstairs bath floor needs replacement. Insufficient rings and hooks for towels etc throughout the home. As stated on website, no beach chairs nor beach towels are provided. We feel they would be welcome additions for renters in the future. Lack of well defined sleeping/bed arrangements on website. No waste baskets in bedrooms. Poor quality of some major appliances (dish washer, washer/dryer). Tennis courts in poor shape and no nets are up at this time. Minor pest problem with centipede(s). We resolved this issue. Some of these issues are readily fixable and others are inherent to the property and still others are outside of control of property owner(tennis and park). When completed the park will in all likelihood be quite nice. Overall and all things considered for price, location and GUEST CAPACITY, this is a good rental option IMHO."

  • A Great time was had by all.

    "There were 15 of us ranging in ages 2 -72...a multi generational family vacation. The house offers so much space that we never interfered with the dynamics of each generation. The young children were able to play and have their own space while still being a part of the activities of the house. The parents had their time and space while the grandparents enjoyed the deck and festivities of all the family members. The kitchen was a common place for all and served as the hub of the operation. The grounds are well manicured and scenic. A home away form home. A perfect place for a family reunion or just a summer vacation for a large gathering of friends."
