Overview

Oak Bluffs House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 9, enclosed sun porch and covered porch

'The Red House' is perfectly located - very quiet, yet only a 10 minute walk to town. This beautiful home is directly on Oak Bluffs Harbor. You can relax on the back porch and watch all the harbor activity. There is a deep water dock, if you want to bring your boat along (, with water but NO ELECTRIC). Four of the five bedrooms, as well as the dining room, living room and sun porch, have a view of the harbor. Four of the bedrooms have window AC units. (there is no central AC in the remainder of the house - not needed with the great sea breeze!) The town of Oak Bluffs is only a short walk away. There are many restaurants, pubs, movie theaters, ice cream and coffee shops, a food market and post office located both around the harbor and on the main street of town. Public transportation is available, as well as bicycle, scooter and car rentals. You can take a bus tour of the island, rent boats and jet skis, or take a local fishing trip. There is a public beach within walking distance.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Guestbook comments from the owner

This guest couldn't get the review to submit to HomeAway. She sent me a copy in an email which I posted below:





Carla,



I copied and pasted this from the review which I don't think went through when I tried to submit it.

We sent a deposit check to you for next year's rental of the Red House.



My best regards.



Joan H.





_____________________________________________________________





Location, location, location...you have it. The harbor views and walk to town location are ideal.



The property has been steadily improved over three years of our two week rentals.



The photos are fair and show the house accurately.



The owner and caretaker are very available to step in when help is needed.



We would recommend the property, and will be renting again next summer.

OUR MARTHA'S VINEYARD FAMILY RETREAT

OUR MARTHA'S VINEYARD FAMILY RETREAT
  • 4 of 5
This property is beautifully located right in the harbor of Oak Bluff's and the view is constantly changing. The house was exactly as listed in the ad with many bedrooms, baths and a huge living room area and dining area with an attached sun porch. They also have a large outdoor porch that overlooks the harbor where we spent most of our time. There are also many chaise lounge chairs in the front lawn over looking the water for you to just lay back and enjoy the peacefulness. We have already re-booked for next year and hope to return many years thereafter. The owners Judy and Karla were wonderful to deal with and they also have a gentleman next door if any problem were to arise. This property is also walking distance to Circuit Ave. the famous Flying Horses, Nancy's and all the other restaurants along the water. We truly would recommend this house to anyone who loves being on the water and likes alot of space.
Tracey and Family!

Magical Stay in Oak Bluffs

  • 5 of 5
The "Red House" was everything that we hoped for and more. The views were incredible! The house was amazing and it had everything that we could possibly need. We loved feeding the ducks every morning and listening to the sounds of the harbor. We were only sorry that we did not stay longer. We will be back for many years to come!

Memories made

  • 5 of 5
My son from California rented this gorgeous home and graciously invited his parents to stay with him. He had rented on the island before but, this place far exceeded the others. The home was so clean and spacious. The view was out of this world. I especially enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the young people from the yacht club having their sailing lessons right out front on the harbor. The activity on the harbor was all the entertainment I needed - I never wanted to leave the porch. Because there were so many bedrooms, our son invited other members to come and visit for a night or two. We ended up having an unplanned family reunion on the 4th of July. We certainly have many wonderful memories staying at the "red house!" - and my son rented it again for next year. I'll spend the long, cold winter thinking of my upcoming vacation on the Vineyard in the warm summertime - making yet even more memories! Thanks for renting to our son!

Great Vacation Spot for Everyone

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay so much we're just booked the same week for this summer.

The location is awesome. It's a quick walk into town. Our kids loved being able to walk to the merry go round and for ice cream. The adults loved not having to worry about parking. The beach that is right next to the house is perfect for younger kids. It was nice being able to leave our stuff on the beach if you wanted to go back to the house for lunch, etc.

The house has a great set up. There is plenty of room for everyone. The bedrooms have plenty of room. The kitchen had everything you could need. We spent a lot of our time on the back porch. The view is incredible. (especially at night) The kids loved catching crabs off the dock.

We've vacationed on the Vineyard for years. And this is by far the best rental we've ever had.

The Red House

  • 5 of 5
Once again the most amazing vacation, we rented this house last year for one week, this year for two and have already signed a lease for two weeks next year. The house and view are amazing. Many upgrades were made over the winter including a brand new bathroom. The house is cleaned by the owners and is impeccable, I have rented many homes on the vineyard and this is by far the cleanest property I have rented. I am a bit of a neat freak and I typically go in a rental and clean myself at the beginning of my stay, this is NOT necessary at the Red House as it is always spotless. The owners are extremely accomodating, providing us with extra linen when requested within an hour. I like dealing directly with the owners rather than a rental agency and find them professional and felt at ease with the personal touch they provide. The close walk to town, the amenities of the home and the view are all perfect. This is now our favorite rental and we will continue to rent this house for years to come. See you next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much!! I'm very excited that you enjoyed your stay and will be back with us again next year! I guess that's the most sincere flattery of all! Thanks again!
