We needed a last minute place to stay and feel grateful to discover this gem. We already had a car reservation, and Larry gave us great tips on how to get over a day earlier to take full advantage of the time available. But note- YOU DO NOT NEED A CAR for this extremely convenient apartment.( Many places say 'car not necessary' but they don't really mean it !)
Parking is on your own, but even though we were there during two big events in Oak Bluffs ( Illumination Night and the Fireworks) we were able to find free oarking the whole time.
You enter the building through a side door and face a grand staircase, a pleasant surprise . There are 2 apartments in the 2nd floor, which has a lovely landing and even a book case for summer reading. Another half flight to the 3rd floor, with a keyless entry system you can customize. There was a large party staying on the second floor but we only heard them if we were both out on our balconies, which overlook Circuit Ave. AND offer a 180* water view in the distance!
In addition to the front balcony, there is a side deck with grill and table. The apartment has a bedroom with 2 doubles as well as a loft with 2 twins. The raised ceiling gives the apartment a grand feel. It is spotless and well equipped with dishes, coffee maker, AC's, etc . You won't find previous renters ketchup or olive oil here- but then , Reliable Market is right across the street!
Larry was super responsive and helpful, even walking me through changing the code when I couldn't figure it out ( when it says 'hold the green button down, it means hold the button DOWN -LOL).
The only issue was getting lost trying to bring the car to the back door to pack up! The Campground Assiciation (gingerbread houses) is right in your backyard. But what is a great place to walk is a potentially confusing place to drive!
