I have been successfully managing seasonal vacation property on Martha's Vineyard for over 30 years. I try to provide accommodations that I would enjoy visiting myself. I do my best to be as responsive as possible to guests comfort and enjoyment during their vacation.

This rental is a certified national historic property. It is the first commercial building built in the town. It looks virtually the same on the outside today as it did in 1862 when it was built. On the inside it has been modernized but remains faithful to its historic origins. The location is unsurpassed for guests looking to be centrally located in one of the most unique towns in the country.

The property has three units and is one tallest buildings in the town. The top floor occupies the entire floor with 360 degree views over the town and the ocean. It has a wonderful covered porch in the front overlooking the main street and a more private deck on the side with a grill and table/chairs. It has a bright sunny living room, a regular bedroom, and a second loft sleeping area. The second floor unit in the front has tall ceilings, two regular bedrooms, an eat in kitchen, and an amazing large covered porch overlooking the main street providing the best people watching spot in town. The third unit is currently unavailable for summer rental.

The Perfect Labor Day

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 10, 2014
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
This review is LONG overdue! My boyfriend and I stayed at Larry's historic property over Labor Day weekend and loved every minute, even with cool/dicey weather. The apartment is very big and can easily sleep 5. It was clean, bright, and well kept. We brought our bikes on the ferry and there was ample room to store them safely inside when we were not out riding. The location is ideal right in the center of town, and deck alone makes the rental worth a visit. Given the weather, we enjoyed a lot of time just sitting on the deck, playing some music and watching the bustle below, it was perfectly relaxing. Larry, the owner, was very easy to communicate with, and accommodating, even calling on our way home to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We will absolutely stay there again, and are already looking at dates to book in 2014!

Unbeatable Island Retreat

  • Submitted: Sep 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
As a party of three middle-aged women, we thought we wanted to rent a ginger bread cottage with a charming porch for a weekend getawy. But those owners were all non responsive to our inquiries. Ironically, each of us, indepently, was drawn to this rental. It wasn;t what we had originally envisioned but the owner was so responsive and had so many positive reviews that we took it. A big thank you goes out to the cottage folks as we ended up with the "Crown Jewel". This gracious, historic building immediately charmed us as we entered. The second floor lobby with its original architecture made for an easy stop before we ascended the stairs to the third floor unit. Expecting it to be small, we were absolutely amazed by the spaciousness of the apartment with vaulted ceilings and,the absolute icing on the cake, a porch overlooking the street with breathtaking views of the water. We had found exactly what we were looking for. But, where was the grill? Oh, there just happens to be a second deck with table and chairs, also with a peek at the water! To be polite, I let my friends have the spacious single bedroom with a queen and twin bed and climbed up to the loft. This cozy area has two twin beds, two small dressers, a reading lamp and two skylights. This was the best nights sleep I had ever had which was made even better with rain and wind on our second night (note to Larry, I did close the skylight) This rental has everything you could possible want with the most important being location, location, location. Shops and restaurants are literally at your feet, and the beach and ferries are a two to three minute walk, yet once you are "home" there is no noise to disturb you, All of us are experienced travelers and the consensus was that this rental is outstanding. Thank you Larry for allowing us to stay in this rental. We will definitely be back!

Oak Bluffs Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 7, 2013

This was our second stay at the Arcade building,and we hope to make it a yearly event. We bring our car for the week,but other than trips to Aquinnah,we essentialy use it as a staging area for beach chairs and umbrellas. Also,bus service on the Island is great. The apartment is in an ideal location,walking distance to the Ferries,great restaurants,and the famous Cottages. The apartment is roomy,and well equipped. It is kept in immaculate condition. There is no need to worry about noise from Circuit Ave.,as the bedrooms are air conditioned. Less than a one minute walk to Back Door Donuts. Apple fritters are a must! Can't say enough good things about Larry and the apartment.

Wonderful apartment in a great location

My family and I had a wonderful stay in apartment 1. The rooms are all much lovelier and spacious than they appear in photos. We really enjoyed the historic building and architectural details. It's a really short walk from the ferry and once there, you can walk to almost everything. We took another reviewers advice and rented a car for the day as we had never been to Martha's Vineyard before, but there is enough to do and see in the immediate area that a car isn't necessary. The owner was exceptionally nice to work with and we are looking forward to visiting again!

Favorite summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 19, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
This was my 4th summer staying at this property in Oak Bluffs. We love it!! The kitchen was renovated this year and is beauitful. We really enjoyed cooking in it, especially the fish we caught from our trip on "The Skipper" earlier that morning (which I highly recommend). The place is very spacious and accomodated our group very well. I especially love the balcony which overlooks Circuit Ave. It's great for BBQing, eating meals, and people watching! As always, we went to our favorite - "back door doughnuts" across the street several times during our stay. And the location cannot be beat! It's only a short walk to everything in Oak Bluffs (the ferry, the beach, bike rentals, restaurants, bars, and the colorful cottages in the Campground). I can't wait for next summer. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
