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

Best place in Oaks Bluff

  • 5 of 5

This was my 4th weeks vacation in Oaks Bluff and this unit is byfar, the best! CLEAN, looked like a fresh coat of paint, updated appliances, comfy, comfy beds, air conditioned, supply linens, BIG front porch, second floor, outdoor grill, right across from the market and unfortunately also Back Door Donuts, Can't resist them once you get a whiff. If you are not planning on seeing the island, you do not need a car. I took mine and am helping MV financially via of parking tickets. There are no cons to this place. I would rent again in a heartbeat. The owner Larry is always reachable and pleasant. This was an A+ all the way.

Wonderful apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

For the past two years I’ve stayed at this wonderful apartment and am looking forward to another stay next year. It is perfectly situated on Circuit Ave within walking distance to everything. The large balcony overlooking the street is a great place to relax any time of day or night. The apartment is large, nicely furnished, and has all amenities including a large flat screen TV with cable and internet. Although it is an historical building, it has a modern kitchen equipped with full size appliances and an array of dishes, cookware, and anything else one might need. It is clean and well maintained. The keyless door lock is easy to use and you don’t have to worry about carrying a key. There is a restaurant below the apartment, but the noise wasn’t bothersome. The hum of the A/C muffled the sounds for sleeping, otherwise, I was on vacation in the middle of Oak Bluffs and did not expect complete silence. The owner is always accessible and has staff available should there be any issues.

Wish I could give 6 stars!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our first stay at the Historic Arcade at Oak Bluffs property. We spent 4 days here and have never been more comfortable on vacation. We were a family of 4 with two kids ages 14 and 16, and we travelled with our small dog with the permission of the owner, Larry. We stayed in Unit 3 on the top floor at the property. It was spacious with a bedroom that had a full size bed and a twin bed. There was also a loft with a ship's ladder to climb up where the kids could sleep in twin beds. And there was also a futon couch in the livingroom so technically the place could sleep 6 people. The apartment was immaculately cleaned and comfortably furnished with attention to detail like many plush towels, a game table, beach chairs, chairs and a grill on the patio/balcony, and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen from plates to glasses to silverware to bottle openers, etc., etc., etc. No stone was left unturned. The apartment is located right on the main street in Oak Bluffs with convenient 24 hour parking a 5 minute walk away at the waterfront. We enjoyed the huge portion of the delicious nachos at Sharkey's restaurant on the first floor of the building on the night we arrived, and we did not hear any noise at all coming from the street below from our apartment at bedtime. I cannot say enough good things about this property. We recommend this location without hesitation, and we cannot wait until we have an opportunity to return.

Great Stay, can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

The Historic Arcade building was the perfect spot for a vacation! The location was amazing right in the middle of Circuit Ave with many options for activities. The beach was a five minute walk! One of the highlights is its dog friendly and was able to bring my fur baby along for the adventure. I look forward to having other vacations here!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 1st time our family visited Martha's Vineyard and what a successful vacation it was! This place was right downtown and the beach and ferry were also within walking distance. This place was across from the grocery store and a few doors down from the Arcade. The kids loved having some freedom to explore places close by without the adults. We are a family of 4 and we had more than enough room at the 3rd floor apartment. The 2 decks were perfect... One for people watching and one for dining. I was thinking the other apartments may be the better option, but my family said we got the best place. Thanks so much to Larry for renting to us and being so helpful in the process. Would definitely love to rent this place again!

Several stays and couldn't be happier

  • 5 of 5

We love Larry's property. We wouldn't rent any other. Clean, modern, comfortable, and central in Oak Bluffs. Two minute walk to beach. Kitchen and apartment stocked with everything you could need. Feels just like home. Also, Larry calls to check up, make sure that all is well.
