Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cottage. It has a large, relaxing front porch with rocking chairs. It is very clean, has a great kitchen, a large bathroom and an outdoor shower. The bike path is just past the front lawn. It's a pleasant walk or bike ride to Oak Bluffs center and the town beach. The cottage is warm and cozy!

The homeowners Marie and Al are friendly, kind and made sure our stay was fantastic. It was a pleasure working with them.

We rented for three weeks and it was a perfect fit for our family. We hope to be back in the summer of 2017!

Could not have been more perfect, owners were excellent to deal with and house had everything you could need. Wireless was great so able to stay connected without any issues. It is close enough to everything but also away from the summer crowds. Had car so could drive easily to stores, restaurants and beaches. My son rented a bike and used bike path which runs right past house to get around island. We also used the bus which we flagged down in front of house to go into town at night. Highly recommended for a great summer vacation on the vineyard.

County Rd, Oak Bluffs vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is a very cozy, well maintained and has all the comforts of home. The description and pictures were accurate. We love that it is centrally located and close to all of the towns and beaches. A fantastic plus is the bike/jogging trail that runs right in front of the house. We would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

The 4 C's...comfortable, cozy, clean, cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed at this cottage. This cottage has a fully stocked kitchen, games for the family, an outside shower, and even beach chairs! The furnishings are comfortable and it is nicely decorated. The home is well maintained both inside and out. The location is great for trips all over the island. Most importantly, the owners are wonderful. They are very timely in their correspondence and provide lots of helpful information prior to arrival. There is no other home I would want to rent while on Martha's Vineyard.
