This property has something for the whole family to enjoy. A large wrap-around porch, outdoor seating and grill make outdoor living enjoyable, while a spacious living room, full kitchen, cable TV, DVD and game closet make indoor living fun as well. Located at the end of Oak Bluffs' main street, there is easy access to amazing shopping and many dining options without a lot of noise and congestion. Down the street is the famous Inkwell Beach perfect for an afternoon nap, or a full day of sun and surf. Public transportation and bike paths all over the island make cars convenient but not necessary, and beautiful scenery makes walking pleasant as well. Oak Bluffs offers the best of the Island from the famous Mad Martha's Ice Cream, Black Dog Store, Giordano's Italian Restaurant, and Flying Horses Carousel. An arcade and night clubs offer many entertainment options, and water sport rentals offer fun filled days on Martha's Vineyard for everyone.

I thought I'd let you know that this past vacation in Martha's Vineyard (the last week of July) was easily my most fun vacation to date. I had such a great time, and there is no way I would have had half the fun had it not been for your wonderful house. This is the both my feeling, and those of my friends - we all had a most wonderful time.
This vacation home made me feel at home! The description was accurate and the photos are current. The house was clean and well kept, the owner takes pride by keeping the facilities updated. I enjoyed sleeping next to the window in the single bed middle room and with the window open I heard the sounds and smells of the harbor and the restautants. The town center, or the circuit, was next-door and I enjoyed grabbing a morning coffee with a walk around the harbor followed by hours of porch sitting in the large wrap around porch with a hammock. For meals I had many options to grocery shop, eat in the large variety of restaurants, or grab carryout from the dive bar. The circuit includes a variety of shopping and the famous flying horses carousel.
I never needed a car. The ferry is a quick 5 minute walk through the beautiful park, food and shopping is a block away, and the beautiful houses of the camp ground are directly across the street.
I felt at home and will certainly return and spend much more time porch sitting and experiencing island life.
The owner was kind and responded quickly. She is well experienced as a property owner as helpful hints regarding trash pickup and amenity controls were well posted and up to date.
I can't wait to come back.
