Oak Bluffs home July 2011
Submitted: September 23, 2011
Stayed: July 2011
We rented this house in July 2011. Our family has been vacationing on the Vineyard for the past 10 years, usually renting a different home each summer in various locations on the island. This house met all our criteria and actually exceeded our expectations. We would have to rate this house a "10" on a scale of 1-10.
The home description was accurate. We had 2 families vacationing together (age range 6 yrs to 60+) and never felt cramped as there was ample space for everyone. We found the house to be very functional for the 2 families as the 2 refrigerators and washers/dryers came in handy. The home was clean and well maintained. Our favorite place to congregate was on the oversized deck which provided more than enough space to take in the beautiful view of the ocean.
The owner, was very helpful and made us feel comfortable. He ensured to us that he was available to assist us in anyway, if needed.
The house is a quick drive to State Beach (our favorite beach) as well as the downtown area. We always enjoy eating at Nancy's and our kids love Sharkey's. The area of East Chop (where the house is located) is beautiful, as we took advantage of walking, running, and biking. We enjoyed early morning walks/jogs on East Chop Road which provides a spectacular view of the ocean as well as the East Chop Lighthouse. The road also provides a quiet and safe route to the downtown marina. The area is relatively quiet, in that there was not a lot of traffic to contend with. The house is on a dead-end street so the younger kids could safely ride their bikes without worry of traffic.
We loved vacationing at this house and would recommend staying here. We are hoping to return again!

Owner's Response: WE APPRECIATED THE VERY EXCELLENT REVIEW (#4707100) OF OUR HOME AND WE WERE VERY PLEASED IN THE FACT THAT THEY ENJOYED THEIR STAY AND FOUND THE HOME TO EXCEED THEIR EXPECTATIONS. AS AN OWNER, I ATTEMPT TO PUT MYSELF IN THE RENTERS PLACE AND TRY TO MAKE EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE AMENITIES SOMETHING THAT I WOULD EXPECT IF I WERE THE RENTER.
