About Larry- Customer of HomeAway.com since 2004

I have been successfully managing seasonal vacation property on Martha's Vineyard for over 30 years. I try to provide accommodations that I would enjoy visiting myself. I do my best to be as responsive as possible to guests comfort and enjoyment during their vacation.

Why Larry- Customer of HomeAway.com since 2004 chose Martha's Vineyard

This rental is a certified national historic property by the United States Department of Interior. It is the first commercial building built in the town. It looks virtually the same on the outside today as it did in 1862 when it was built. On the inside it has been modernized but remains faithful to its historic origins. The location is unsurpassed for guests looking to be centrally located in one of the most unique towns in the country.

What makes this apartment unique

The property has three units and is one of the tallest buildings in the town. The top floor occupies the entire floor with 360 degree views over the town and the ocean. It has a wonderful covered porch in the front overlooking the main street and a more private deck on the side with a grill and table/chairs. It has a bright sunny living room, a regular bedroom, and a second loft sleeping area. The second floor unit in the front has tall ceilings, two regular bedrooms, an eat in kitchen, and an amazing large covered porch overlooking the main street providing the best people watching spot in town. The third unit is currently unavailable for summer rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We're getting married here in CT on the 23rd and

heading out to your place on the 24th. It was the 1st

vacation spot we took together when we first started

dating in 1998 and then we found your place in

2001...needless to say, you have customers for life!

Thanks again,
Jul 2003

We keep coming back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th summer at the Arcade Building and we can't wait til next year again. It's perfect for our family in every way and couldn't be more convenient for those without a car. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you could need, and there's a grocery store right across the street. And there's no better place to people-watch than the balcony on Circuit Ave.

Highly recommended, and can't wait for next summer!

Our experience in the Historic Oak Bluffs Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Unit 1 for a week in August. It happened to be very hot that week, but due to the overhead fans, air condition, and breezy balcony we had a wonderful experience. This historic Oak Bluffs apartment is lovely. Convenient to everything you would want on the Vineyard. We walked to restaurants, grocery store, package store, beach (Ink Well), bicycle rental etc. The apparent is very clean, and fully stocked. All you need is your own clothing, and if you forget that there are plenty of stores on the block you can purchase from. The internet if free, it went out once, and Larry the owner came right over to reboot it. We can't wait to return this this location.

Respectfully,

Yolonda and Ed Hamilton (Los Angeles, CA)

Freedom!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location! Great accommodations for up to 5. My teens absolutely LOVED the independence and freedom of getting around on foot to friends, food, activities and fun! I enjoyed the adult entertainment and dining at night within walking distance. Walking distance to beach and waterfront. The apartment was perfect and cozy for close friends or family up to 5. Everything needed was there. The only exceptions were newer towels and wash clothes are needed. No central air (but there are window units in the 2 bedrooms). The porch was divine. Great for people watching, entertaining and/or relaxing. Apartment was clean and had a kitchen stocked with dishes, pots, glasses, etc. Owner easy to work with. No hassle booking and accommodations. Definitely returning!

Fabulous Apartment in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I loved our stay in Unit 1 and look forward to staying again next year. The apartment was well maintained, very clean, nicely furnished, and roomy. It had everything we needed. It's in a perfect location right on Circuit Avenue. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the mornings for coffee, and in the evenings to people watch. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Although it's right above Sharkey's Restaurant, we hardly heard any noise. The owner and caretaker were accessible if we needed them. We can't wait to return.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and the deck is awesome. It was loud at night, but the ACs drowned out the noise for the most part. Very clean.
