Overview

Oak Bluffs Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1.25 Baths (Sleeps 4 w/ airbed in living rm)

This lovely, in-town, impeccably renovated 1800's historic Oak Bluffs upstairs apartment is adored by all who stay here. With landscaped gardens, a beautiful patio with a hot tub, outdoor shower, and an outdoor designer Rais fireplace, and original architectural details, the apartment is truly an oasis in the heart of Oak Bluffs.

Surrounded by all the vibrant and colorful life of Oak Bluffs in every direction, there is never a need to commute into town for the islands most popular events. The August Fireworks, Illumination night, concerts on the park are all around the corner.

The apartment is a very short walk along beautiful Ocean Park from the ferry, a couple of blocks from the islands exceptional transportation system, a couple of blocks to State Beach, a block from exceptional restaurants and bars, practically next door to performances at the Tabernacle or Union Chapel, a block from the Methodist Campgrounds with their spectacular and colorful historic Gingerbread houses, a few blocks from the Harbor with its magnificent sunsets and waterfront restaurants and nightlife, and the ice cream shops, arcade, movie theatres and live local music of Circuit Ave. The breathtaking bike path from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown, with water on both sides, begins just a few blocks from the house, and running and walking paths through nature trails are a short jog away. Oak Bluffs truly has everything, and in my heart is the jewel of Martha's Vineyard Island.

The apartment has a sunlit living room with beautiful breezes through many new windows flanking both sides, a kitchenette, full bath, and a lovely and spacious sunlit bedroom with meditation nook and skylight.

The house is very special, with beautiful energy from all the wonderful people who have stayed there and graced its walls and gardens. Up to four people are welcome in this apartment. The living room has a deluxe full height, very comfortable full size air bed.

There may be very carefully selected pets in this rental.

About Sharon Strimling

I have lived on Martha's Vineyard full time for 20 years now, but vacationed there as a child. Martha's Vineyard has always been a very special place to me, and I love it dearly. I found this home about 14 years ago and fell in love with it immediately. A massage therapist on Martha's Vineyard, voted 'Best of the Vineyard' in the Vineyard Gazette, I once did massage out of this house, and people adored being there for their massages! You will see - the home is a true, historic beauty, and has a special feeling to it as well.

My favorite morning routine is to go for a run through the beautiful nature trails a short jog away, have a healthy smoothie in the hot tub, and then walk down the street to the local coffee shop for a wonderful cup of tea and to say hi to the locals gathering there.

My nieces and nephews on the other hand, get far more excited about the late afternoon or after dinner walk down to the arcade and ice cream shop to lick their ice cream cones while watching the nightlife walk by on Circuit Ave!

Oh - and of course, the movie theater down the street calls to them from time to time as well!

Sharon Strimling purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Sharon Strimling chose Oak Bluffs

There is no location on Martha's Vineyard like downtown Oak Bluffs, and nowhere in the world I would rather be. With the coffee shops, restaurants and shops in town, the beach just a couple of blocks away, Ocean park separating the house from the ocean, the Tabernacle a block in the other direction, the Flying Horses carousel for children, Union Chapel with its performances and the harbor just down the street, it just doesn't get any better than this. I will never look to be in any other location on Martha's Vineyard than in the charming and lively town of Oak Bluffs!

What makes this apartment unique

House call massage at this rental is available by appointment. Appointments should be booked well in advance to assure availability.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I spent a weekend away in the fall. The upstairs apartment was cozy and perfect for the two of us and the location was fantastic. We were close to all of our favorite places!



Sharon is a fantastic person who went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect including the welcome "goodies " she provided.



We hope to come back again in 2013! Thanks!

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the upstairs apartment for two weeks in October and it was perfect. It's not huge, but beautifully maintained, and great for one or two people - and ideal as a writing retreat. It's right off the main business district of Oak Bluffs so no car is required and everything is at your doorstep. And Sharon (the owner) is absolutely cool and relaxed and great fun to hang out with - and always available in case of problems. The kitchen is small but with all necessities and totally suited my needs - with a funky vintage stove/sink/fridge combo unit. Plus, there's a back deck for warmer months. I definitely recommend it.

Great apartment and great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Sharon's apartment. The apartment was charming with character but clean and up to date. Location was awesome.....in town, close to the beach, bike paths, and public transportation. Sharon was beyond helpful with planning fun activities and recommending restaurants. Thanks again for a great stay.

Paradise! It was worth every penny spent!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sharon was a wonderful host and very easy to work with. The location is superb. Close to shops, restaurants, market, ferry, bus stop and anything else you could possibly need. I can't imagine any other location as convenient as this home is. The apartment was an absolute slice of heaven. Everything was comfortable and clean. I felt so much at home and had a hard time leaving. I hope to visit again soon. Oak Bluffs was the place to be and Sharon's home is the place to stay.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!!!!! CHARMING APT.

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin, Oak Bluffs is a little slice of Heaven. I stayed in the upstairs apartment of this beautiful Gingerbread house, which was well appointed. Sharon, the owner of this lovely home was very accommodating and helpful. She made sure my family and I were comfortable. Her home exceeded my expectations. This house is in the perfect location; across the street from Back Door Donuts, which is an experience in itself, "Apple Fritter" YUM!!!, just saying. Circuit Avenue, the main strip is right around the corner from this delightful home and has many shops/restaurants that definitely should be explored. To sum it up everything is within walking distance. My family and I can't wait to return because our stay was so wonderful! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you, Keisha! I am so thrilled that you loved the house and thoroughly enjoyed Oak Bluffs, which, I agree, it truly a slice of Heaven! It was absolutely delightful to have you and your beautiful family as guests!! I can't wait for you to come back as well! :)

Perfectly located, warm and charming apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this rental months ago to celebrate our anniversary and Sharon worked with us on our date to pick the right weekend with her existing reservations and was very accommodating, even though we started to creep into the peak season timeframe. She was extra available in the days leading up to our arrival and made sure we were comfortable throughout our stay. The apartment itself is located basically in the dead center of oak bluffs, close to everything and we enjoyed walking the main drag, visiting the beautiful open park and running along the waterfront. It is perfectly appointed with whatever you need and the grill works great! Sharon provided plenty of things-to-do and places-to-eat recommendations. We also discovered that it is a stone's throw away from Back Door Donuts, which makes the most incredible apple fritter in the whole wide world, so definitely visit that if you are in the mood to indulge (you can share it between about 20 people and still get a bite!). Overall, highly recommend for a couple!!

A Special Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic time staying in this lovely gingerbread house! The location is great, just a block from restaurants, or the ocean! Even though it was off-season, we had a great time being close to all the quaint houses and shops. We loved being able to walk to coffee, then bringing that coffee over to the ocean-side.

Host Sharon is fantastic! She is very accommodating to any special request and truly wants your time to be enjoyable. Her upstairs unit that we stayed in was very clean and had everything you need for a nice getaway...and you can't beat the hot tub!

If we are ever back from Minnesota, we will definitely call up Sharon to stay here. FAB!
