Overview

Oak Bluffs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Major renovations in 2013, including a new kitchen, master bath, and central AC. Beyond that, we will let the photos do the talking, but note that this home has some especially attractive features for large groups, such as bedrooms that allow for privacy due to access by 3 separate staircases. The new kitchen has two refrigerators, tile floors, and a high efficiency washing machine. Dining area has two tables that seat up to 16 people. There are a number of flat screen TV throughout the house. Mattresses and pillows are all protected with hypoallergenic liners.

With all that is new, there are still many historic touches that have been restored -- sliding panel doors with the original hardware in the living room, stained and leaded glass windows, and a funky 'Nantucket Bedroom' that is great for kids.

Outside you will find a large, shaded farmers porch, two outdoor showers, gas grill, and a more private sitting area on the side of the house. Cross the street and you have access to tennis/basketball courts (we supply high quality tennis rackets and basketballs) and a playground. Take a few more steps and you are on Circuit Ave, surrounded by restaurants, shops, and nightlife. As for the beach and harbor (including ferry boats to the mainland), they are just a few scenic blocks away.

This home is professionally cleaned and maintained year-round, and the owner has been renting out homes on the Vineyard for 15 years. Feel free to inquire about the two bedroom Edgartown home and the four bedroom Oak Bluffs home. www.homeaway.com numbers 106497 and 111212.

Just Great!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this home in early September of 09 and now we are planning out 2010 trip. This home was just great for our group of 14. Others have said it, but we really appreaciate the space to spread out for our different families and yet all gather together in that great dining room, which seats about 15 or 16 people. It's a great place to just hang out. There are a lot of nice touches to this home that are really helpful for large groups: 2 coffee makers, 2 refrigerators, 5 or 6 televisions spread throughout the whole house, and the personal computer. Something else worth mentioning -- the mattresses and bedding are of a really high quality, something you don't usually think about until you arrive at your destination. The owner was very attentive and I was always impressed by how quickly he answered my emails. The location is great..,just around the corner from town and an easy walk to the beach. The park across the street with tennis and basketball, and stuff for the kids is a real place. We highly recommend this home.

Perfect House, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a fantastic one-week vacation on the vineyard at this beautiful house. The location is absolutely perfect—less than one block from Circuit Ave. (restaurants, arcade, ice cream, boutique stores, grocery store), a minute away from a playground, basketball and tennis courts and a few blocks away from the beach. We rented this house with another family (six kids under 7) and loved the convenience of walking everywhere.

The unique layout of the house is perfect for large groups. There are three separate staircases: first leading to two spacious rooms; second leading to two other spacious rooms and the third (off of the kitchen) leading to one very large room with three twin beds. There is also an additional room on the ground floor. At first, we thought the layout would be difficult with the kids and the stairs, but it turned out to be perfect. Each family took the staircases with the two rooms each and our two nieces (babysitters for the week) took the one larger room with three twin beds. It was so easy to put the kids to bed and enjoy dinner outside or inside without worrying that the kids would wake up. We loved the wrap-around porch, having the two refrigerators, outside shower and more than ample dining space indoor or outdoors. We were worried about how hot it would be at night and were pleasantly surprised to find up to two fans in every room (even though it got cool in the mornings).

As great as the house was, we were so impressed with the owner of the home. From the minute we inquired about the house he has been nothing but wonderfully responsive. The days leading up to the rental date, he emailed us a long list of restaurant recommendations. We arrived a bit earlier than expected and called him and he picked up right away and told us we could probably check in a bit earlier. Two days into our vacation, one of our kids decided to press all the buttons on the remote control and messed up the television. I emailed the owner and he responded within minutes and explained what we should do.

In all, a fantastic vacation at a wonderful home!

Our stay at 9 Wamsutta at Oaks Bluff

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a wonderful vacation at Martha's Vineyard. The home we rented for a week was very clean, so nicely decorated, and all the comforts of home. We were so impressed with the beautifully landscaped yard with 2 picnic tables to accomodate our large family, the very large kitchen (including 2 refrigerators), the very comfortable stylish living room with a flat screen TV, and a dining room that comfortably seated all of us. We also loved the idea of being in walking distance to the beach, to the shops, and just a walk across the street to the tennis courts.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm happy to hear that the new landscaping worked out for you. After installing the new septic system, we wanted to make the yard more attractive and more useful. It should be even better next year as the new plantings take root. Hope to see you at the home again some time in the future.

Truly a Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in this home with my family and extended family for the past 5+ years during our annual family vacations to the Vineyard. It is truly our home away from home! Its location can't be beat! If you're looking for a house close to town, beach and park all are in walking distance - town and park literally steps away! The house itself is clean, modern and spacious. Enough room for privacy when you want it and family time for meals, games, etc.! Rent this house for your stay on the Vineyard and you won't be disappointed.

Failed Septic System

  • 1 of 5
We stayed here August 7 to August 21, 2011. There were 12 of us the first week, 15 the second, and most of us have been staying in houses together on Martha’s Vineyard for three years now. We’ve all also visited the Vineyard separately many times over the years.

This is a spacious house within walking distance of Circuit Avenue and the beach. The kitchen is large, with 2 refrigerators, very nice for a group of this size. The mattresses are very comfy, the best we’ve had so far. However, 3 of the 6 bedrooms have no closet and one bedroom has just enough room to squeeze alongside the queen size bed. In addition, the septic system had failed. Although the owner says he first became aware of the problem a few days before we arrived, he informed us of the situation on the day of our arrival as we were all in route, and then suggested that we take short showers and shower outdoors. The toilets filled with food and overflowed three times during our stay. There were days when 15 people had the use of 1 or 2 of the 3 bathrooms in the house.

The owner was quick to have someone come and pump the system whenever problems arose, but we feel we should have been informed when the owner first became aware of the situation and given a chance to back out and get a full refund or offered a discount to still come.

Owner's Response: To be blunt, I have been renting my homes on the Vineyard since 1998, and I have never had such a serious situation while guests were in the home, and I truly regret that it happened. The septic had been acting up, but I learned about the extent of the problem the day before the guests arrived. The thought of cancelling their lodging in the middle of August did not even occur to me – they were arriving from Maryland and would have been stranded without a place to stay. When I told them of the problem they did not mention cancelling their reservation. Yes, I did politely ask for their help by reducing their water usage during their stay. It was the only way to alleviate the problem. I mentioned working out some form of settlement with the guests while they were still at the home and I have mentioned it again since.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE SEPTIC IS BEING REPLACED THIS WINTER AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO SHARE THE ENGINEERING PLANS WITH ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED. WE ARE COMBINING THE JOB WITH A NEW LANDSCAPE DESIGN, SO WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO IMPROVING THE YARD AS WELL.

But now I need to defend the bedroom comments. While this home has been updated top to bottom, it is still a big funky Oak Bluffs home that is filled with surprises, and that includes the bedrooms. I love to watch the reactions of visitors as I show them through the house. It is truly unique. The bedrooms range in size from very large, to average, to one that is very small. They all have dressers and storage for clothing. Three have closets in the room; one has a place to hang clothes right outside the door. Two others have places to hang clothes but no closets. I can easily add more places to hang clothes this winter. The only reason it has not been done sooner is that no one has mentioned it as a problem. It's really a minor change.
Lastly, I stand by the quality of all 4 of my rental properties. I welcome you to examine my other properties on Homeaway.com ( 106497, 105199, and in San Diego – 125975) and decide about them for yourself. If this property interests you, please call me and we can discuss my plans for next year and any of the issues raised by the reviewer.

Wonderful house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Celebrated my 40th birthday with friends and family in this house and everyone loved it. The house is located a block from Circuit Avenue shops and restaurant, which the adults will love. It is also adjacent to a lovely park and tennis club, which the kids will love. The beach is a short stroll away and the neighborhood is lovely. The house is nicely updated with a sweet front porch, small yard with benches and a grill. The inside of the house is very clean and well-maintained. The layout is unique with 3 separate staircases leading to the bedrooms which is great for privacy. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and family friendly and great for kids. The living room is comfortable with a nice sofa and books and magazines. There is also a computer room with computer and high speed internet. The dining room has two tables, including a large one. The kitchen has 2 refrigerators and a new washing machine. There is parking in both the front and back of the house. I worried that the 2.5 baths would not be enough for a large group but was pleasantly surprised that it was just fine. The owner was fantastic! Very attentive and flexible with our requests. As far as activities in the area, I would recommend Deon's for meals, C'est La Vie for shopping, the Flying Horses Carousel for the kids, and don't miss a road trip to Acquinnah to see the lighthouse and have a lobster roll at Faiths.
