About the property

4 bedroom, 1.5 bath, sleeps 6-8

Booking now for Fall 2017 and Summer of 2018! Water view. The ultimate in family convenience: 5 houses up from Town beach, 1 block from Ocean Park and 2 blocks from Circuit Ave, the heart of Oak Bluffs. This well-maintained historic Victorian summer home was built about 1872, by famed architect Samuel Pratt, who designed a small number of Gothic structures in Oak Bluffs, including our home and the Union Chapel down the street (see old picture from 1800's). It has great ocean views from its wrap-around porch, stocked with rockers and other outdoor furniture, making even a rainy vacation day enjoyable at home. Indoors there's a spacious living room, formal dining room, cheerful eat-in kitchen and cozy TV room. The four bedrooms are all upstairs. Master bedroom in front has a Queen bed with water-view balcony. East bedroom has a new Queen bed & mattress. West bedroom has a double bed, back bedroom has 2 twin beds. Outdoors there's a beautiful flower garden in back overlooked by an open al fresco 'breakfast porch'. The owners are accomplished gardeners, so there are plenty of attractive flowers and plantings.

Amenities include washer/dryer, gas grill, cable/VCR, wireless internet, microwave, outdoor shower.

An exceptionally sweet homey property with attractive furnishings, magnificent wrap-around porch and lovely water views. This is a classic, old-style Oak Bluffs Victorian Cottage style home, and as such, has fully functional, yet vintage style amenities. This is not a super-modern style home, but takes you back to a simpler time when families gathered to enjoy each other's company, the beach, and the very short walk to all that the town and harbor areas of Oak Bluffs have to offer. Only 5 houses up from the Town Beach, and a short stroll to town, bike paths, shopping and all Oak Bluffs attractions. Our guests all say they feel right at home here. dianegardeniaatgmaildotcom

Four Generations of Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We loved and enjoyed this house! The condition of the house was as described and big enough for 4 generations of family. The location is on a quiet street near the beach and Ocean Park. The owner was very responsive to a grill situation and was able to resolve the issue. The house has higher ceilings compared to other Oak Bluffs rentals. Most bedrooms had ceiling fans which were needed as the weather was hot and humid in August. The front porch needs more outdoor lighting for evenings. Our bed was very comfortable too, which is also rare!

Perfect location makes this house our favorite!

  • 5 of 5

This house is simply perfect. We are a family of 5 who have now stayed here twice. LOVE the location. Easy walk to the beach, Ocean Park and Circuit Ave for shopping and restaurants. The house is clean, plenty of room for everyone and the wrap around porch is our favorite place to be! Owner is wonderful and always accessible for any questions or concerns.
