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

Another great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults + dog) had another wonderful stay at the arcade building. This was our second year renting the 3rd floor apartment and again it was all we wanted and needed. Nestled in the middle of hot spot, Circuit Ave. you get the best of everything Oak Bluff has to offer! The apartment it self is great and has all utilities needed. During our stay we had 1 cloudy/rainy day and made the best of it by having a movie marathon. Food options are endless and having the Reliable market across the street was clutch! We look forward to renting again and making another memorable vacation.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate. The place was clean, well-equipped and well-situated. In spite of being in the midst of everything, it was quiet. Some of our party couldn't join us so we never used the loft. Only downside is the lack of nearby parking. All in all, a good place to stay.

A beautiful property and fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I rented 2 units in this property for the weekend to run the Martha's Vineyard Half Marathon. Both units are beautifully maintained, well appointed, and larger than expected! The location is perfect, as the property is right in the heart of Oak Bluffs. It was great to be able to walk from the ferry, walk to dinner, shopping, the water, coffee shops, grocery store, etc. The owner was very responsive and easy to communicate with at all times. We all highly recommend this owner and this property to anyone that is looking for a great stay on the Vineyard!
