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.

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 owner
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!
