Beautiful house in the perfect Oak Bluffs location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful older house in an excellent location. Our group of 10 was very comfortable in its warm and cozy setting. Everyone had their own favorite place to hang out. For some it was the spacious living room , for others the delightful sitting room with views of the large park directly across from it, for yet others it was the spacious deck, and even in late September many of our party found ourselves sunbathing there, or just having coffee in the morning or drinks and snacks in the evening. For all of us it was the up to date kitchen and lovely dining room for dinners together in the evening. There is also a breakfast room where one of our party could be found beading for a couple of hours each day.

The house is exactly as described by the owner, while the location couldn't be better. You can walk along the park to the famous Inkwell Beach in about 3 minutes (one of our favorite activities was to take a book and some snacks to the benches above the beach and read for an hour or so). The main street of Oak Bluffs, Circuit Avenue, with its many shops and restaurants, is within easy walking distance from the house, as are most of the principal attractions of Oaks Bluff including the famous camp grounds, a fantasy place of charming small Victorian homes with tons of delightful gingerbread circling a central park. In season, the church there is active and very open and inviting. The pier is also within easy walking distance for afternoon eating, drinking, or dining. For fine dining on the pier in the evening don't miss Nancy's.

There's ample parking in from of the house, while the buses on MV are cheap and simple and can take you most everywhere (with the exception of Chappaquiddick--well you can take a bus to taken the Chappy ferry across to enjoy the views of Edgartown from the public beach there, but you will need a bike or a car to explore the rest of Chappaquiddick with its spectacular wildlife preserves, beaches, and the wonderful Japanese Garden, My Toi open, free, and lovely in any season).

You'll need a vehicle (or take the bus as already mentioned) to other notable parts of the island. Don't miss the old fishing village of Menemsha to enjoy wonderful fish and seafood and glorious sunsets,. Another must see are the beautiful Gay Head Bluffs with its wonderful lighthouse. There are several light houses on the island, and perhaps the most spectacular is the one in Edgartown.

Beautiful and spacious home with perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My group of 11 people thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful home. The house is huge (we never felt on top of each other), with plenty of beds and great amenities. The house was stocked with everything we needed, and more! We particularly enjoyed the enormous outdoor deck, where we spent most of our time grilling and lounging. The house overlooks Waban Park, which provides plenty of green space for outdoor activities, and Oaks Bluff downtown is only a 7-10 minute walk away. The beach is a 2 minute walk down the street. The house is close to everything, but is tucked away on a quiet street off the main road. We truly felt as though we had our own little oasis. Also, Denise (the owner) was a pleasure to work with, and was prompt with responding to emails and addressing any questions. We will definitely be back next year! Thanks, Denise!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family vacation. Very spacious. Even though there were 11 of us, we never felt like we were on top of each other.

the location is great. Walking distance to the beach, stores, restaurants, arcade & ice cream for the kids!

My favorite part of the house is the outside, the deck & outdoor shower. The deck is huge. Big enough that we were able to set up our bean bag game. Lots of chairs to relax. The outdoor shower was awesome, I actually never used the indoor showers.

This is a great house for a big group to vacation

MV Enthusiast.

Denise's home is beautiful, clean, and well kept. The house has all of the amenities to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable (the wifi & cable were a plus for our older children!).Denise was very responsive to our questions about the property prior to our visit, and also called to check in on us and make sure everything was ok. She is a great and wonderful host. My family and I had a wonderful time in the Vineyard during our stay at Leander's Leisure, and are looking forward to our return visit.

My beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I've been staying at this house for the past seven years and words cannot express how much I love our beautiful home away from home. The property is clean, spacious and well maintained. This year, the owners have begun renovations, adding lovely updates to make "Leander's Leisure" even more beautiful and comfortable. The owner is sweet and very responsive to any need that should arise. I recommend this home highly and I'm sure you will want to return to every time you return to the Vineyard.
