This home will definitely put you in a relaxed island state of mind! It is within walking distance to all that Oak Bluffs has to offer. Parking is terrific if you bring a car. There is a spot right behind the house. It is a simple home, but has everything you will need. We loaded up on groceries in Cape Code before getting on the ferry and cooked almost every meal for the week in the kitchen, which was fully stocked. The front porch has a great table that seats four. We ate breakfast and dinner there each day. The table's side of the porch becomes dark at night, but we brought one of the small lamps from the family room out onto the porch and put it in the middle of the table. It created a really special atmosphere for dinner.
The owner's sister lives on the island and will happily assist you with anything you need. I called her the first day to ask for more towels and she brought them over, no problem! She was also very willing to answer any questions about the island. A couple of things to note: There is no air conditioning, however, the owners have plenty of electric fans if you look in the living room closet. It actually ended up being incredibly comfortable with the windows open throughout the house. There is no washer/dryer, which can be tough when staying close to a week. However, there is a laundromat within walking distance.
If you are looking for a simple and relaxing island cottage within walking distance then I would definitely recommend this rental to you. It was a tough place to leave knowing that we had to return to the "real world". We've only been away one day at this point and are already longing to return!
