BIG VICTORIAN BEACH HOUSE. STEPS TO BEACH, TOWN & FERRY

Oak Bluffs House Rental Photos and Description

Waterviews, 4 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 half bath, Big Porch & Yard - Sleeps 10

Old vineyard rustic cottage charm. Across from the Inkwell beach and situated in the heart of the copeland historic district. The classic 1851 victorian beach cottage has 4+ bedrooms and ideally sleeps 8. The porch has ocean/inkwell beach views. Our lawn perfect for family and friends to gather, grill and relax. The renowned inkwell beach is steps away and charming oak bluffs harbour, ferry and quaint main street is a 5-7 minute stroll way. A central location with the public park with tennis courts, playground and basketball courts right down the street. Waban park behind the house perfect for flying kites on the ocean breeze or kicking around a soccer/football. The spacious house has 4+ bedrooms with high speed internet, DVD and Cable TV. In addition, for larger parties, there is a guest cottage on the property next door available for rental that has a separate high-speed wi-fi, shower, kitchen, laundry, gas grill and seating. house web: www.joyeuxonthevine.com

Outside Dining & Porch: If your family and friends love living outside and walking to the beach then look no further. The house is literally 50 steps away from Inkwell beach - and for those who dont prefer the sand we have an ample lawn that includes a large picnic table, a private cafe table, a breakfast table with morning sun, porch rockers, beach chairs, beach towels and comfy adirondack chairs. The large porch wraps around to allow shade seekers on the porch to easily converse with sunbathers in the garden. There are beds of roses, hydrangeas and rhodendrums for you and your guests to enjoy. In addition, there is a gas grill and an outside clothing line. TV, DVD and Wi-Fi on the property.

Sleeping Well: While we believe it is the ocean breeze that gives you such a good nights sleep here, we also have new mattresses, pillows, blankets and linens in all the bedrooms in May 2011. In the two master bedrooms, the pillow-top mattress are covered in 600-1000 count cotton sheets for maximum comfort. In addition, each master bedroom has an iPOD/iPHONE music docking station and a digital alarm clock for those of you who want to get up early to watch those stunning ocean sunrises.

We are a family of four with two young children. I grew up in New England, and the vineyard was always a magical summer place. My husband grew in the mountains of Italy, but once he came to the vineyard also fell in love with the special nature of the place. We bought this house so our children would have the memories of the beach and family. This is our family vacation home and we are pleased to share the laid-back charm the vineyard has to offer. It is a friendly old neighborhood, with families that have been there for generations. It is a family house and best suited for families or close groups of friends looking to join beach vineyard living.

Claudio purchased this house in 2009

We were looking for many years to find a house that had retained it's original victorian charm. The moment I walked into this house, I knew it was the home for us. It maintained it's original charm and you could feel the warm and 150+ years. It was not modern, which for us was perfect as the whole point of the island is that it is a retreat from modern life, and a connection to a way with each other and nature. The family before us had the property in their family for 60 years. We have the responsibility as care takers of a very special place that will be around for many more generations to come. It is quintessential rustic vineyard cottage living and we love it.

The location was just perfect, the idea that we could hear and see the ocean from the master bedroom, yet still walk to town for ice-cream, or down the street for tennis, behind us is Waban park which is the best place in the world (we believe) for flying a kite. The location allows for a morning stroll to the harbor along the beach, or a 10K bike ride in between the sand dunes, or quite simply take your coffee and sit on the big rock and watch the sunrise. It is a perfect in town at the beach location, which uniquely combines the history and the beach spirit of this place.

My family stayed at this beautiful home at the beginning of July. The house is close to everything. The beach was never crowded, the water was clear and the house was less than two minutes away.
The house itself was very cozy. The porch was a perfect spot enjoy the ocean breeze and the spirit of the Vineyard. The beds were very comfortable and all the bedrooms had a great cross breeze.
We also enjoyed walking to the town of Oak Bluff and enjoying the many variety of ice cream!!
We will be back to visit this wonderful house for many years to cone.

We stayed here during the Memorial Day weekend and simply loved it. The house is spacious and has that Vineyard feel (at least we think it did). They are CLOSE to the water, 2 minutes walk and you're not just on sand, your feet are wet.

It's an easy walk to everywhere, (5 minutes to the Oak Bluffs ferry, 5 minutes to Circuit Street, 2 minutes to some nice beaches) and we did enjoy exploring however most evenings were spent grilling and sitting on the porch, enjoying the neighborhood and the sea breezes.

The bedrooms are updated and comfortable with good cross breezes so we slept excellently. The house has all the amenities we could have asked for, the kitchen was well stocked, etc.

Just a wonderful place to spend some time on Martha's Vineyard!
