  • Wonderful Experience

    "By the Lee is a wonderful, charming home in Oak Bluffs. The pictures don't do it justice. The home's location is removed from the downtown traffic yet close enough if you want to venture into the hustle of tourist crowds. It was nice to be within distance to all of the amenities to make us feel at home such as restaurants, supermarkets, DVD rentals, bike rentals, sightseeing, etc. Six of us stayed at the home for a week. The house was large enough for each person to locate an area of the house to claim as theirs. We had a spectacular ocean view. The breeze off the water made the August heat a non issue and we experienced sunsets that were just amazing. I learned about this home from someone who stayed last year. It's all she told me it would be and I definitely recommend the home to anyone. I have already told a few friends about it. The owners greeted us upon arrival and they offer exceptional customer service. My family and I plan to return and hope to stay for 2 weeks. This was the most relaxing vacation I have taken in a long time. I could go on and on. I miss it already!!!!"

  • Our Lovely Stay in West Tisbury

    "This was our 2nd year renting the home and we enjoyed it even more than the first. The property is private and very quiet. It's conveniently located mid-island which affords easy access to bike trails to Edgartown and Oaks Bluff. The home has all amenities and Alice provided fresh eggs from the chickens in the back of the property. Property provides a step towards nature while providing all modern amenities. We hope to make renting this home an annual summer tradition visiting Martha's Vineyard."

  • 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."

  • Comfortable family home

    "We just returned from a lovely vacation at this comfortable and charming home! The island was busy for July 4th- this house was close enough to the action (fireworks, parades, ice cream!) to be convenient, but far enough to still be quiet when we needed a break. Walking distance to farmers market, playground, delicious bakery/sandwich shop, general store, galleries. Short drive to beaches, hikes, restaurants, etc. Excellent location! We were four adults, three kids, one baby, and one 40 lb dog and all felt very comfortable. Plenty of sleeping, playing, lounging, and eating space for us all. The house sits close to the road in front, but the large yard in the back feels very private and is perfect for kids and dogs. Clearly an old family home, which is part of the charm, but not lacking in modern amenities (well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, plenty of bathrooms, etc) and we were able to easily find everything we needed. George was a VERY helpful and attentive host. Highly recommend! Thank you!"
