I am happy to answer any questions you might have. Just email me.
My wife, our dog and I arrived for our 2 week stay in July 2016. We enjoyed the home very much, it is quiet and private.
The home is very nice, it is comfortable and plenty of house for the 3 of us. We did bring our car over on the ferry (book it far ahead in the summer) and we liked having it on the island.
The house was stocked with everything you need to get started (spices, etc...) but of course you will want to pick up what you want for yourself and likely leave things for others.
I particularly enjoyed the panini maker and used it 4x in our 2 weeks.
The back yard is great, we spent a lot of time here in the evenings. Really, it is a place to relax. Our little guy loved it, he was maybe more happy here than at home which is really something.
You can walk to Oak Bluffs in 10-12 minutes. We rode our bikes several times to Edgartown (about a 15 mile round trip). We would definitely return to this home if we were planning on being back on the island which will depend on our dog's health.
So to answer the main questions:
Was the listing accurate: Absolutely
Was the property clean and maintained: Absolutely
Did the owner provide good customer service: Yes, we really like Donna, she is knowledgable about the island and just a great person overall. I can't say enough good things about her.
Would you recommend the property to a friend or relative: Absolutely
What activities/restaurants did we enjoy: L'Etoile - Edgartown, John's Fish Market - Vineyard Haven, Scottish Bakehouse - Vineyard Haven, Chilmark Chocolates - Chilmark, MV Wine & Spirits - Edgartown and Animal Health Care - Dr. Atwood - Edgartown...
The list goes on, there is a lot to do or you can do nothing... the choice is yours... but we love riding our bikes on the island.
Thanks again Donna!
We have rented this house since 2014; my husband and I love it and call it "our home away from home." Not only clean and comfortable; the house has a very unique history which was published in a local editorial. Walk to town, or Ocean Park to board bus transit for other sites on MV. Donna, the owner, could not be more pleasant to work with - she is gracious and wants you to enjoy your stay. We arrive pumped up for our visit and leave sadly longing for more days. I would recommend this to a couple, it has special ambience for two.
This was the best two week vacation on the vineyard ever!! I have stayed in many houses over many years but this home was just perfect you are close to town (Walking ) yet in a quiet community, . Donna the owner was a joy , She made sure that every thing was at your fingertips that you could possibly need on a vacation.
My family also rented the front house so that we were able to have a family vacation together what more can I say . Thanks Donna See you next year
My boyfriend and I rented this place for the first time this summer and we couldn't be happier with it! The indoor spaces are big enough that you don't feel cramped and the outdoor area was great for meals or just lounging. Lots of amenities too. We borrowed the beach chairs a few times and even rode the cruiser bikes down to State Beach to watch the fireworks. We wouldn't hesitate to rent again!
I agree with all the comments in the other reviews. This cottage was wonderful. It had everything you could possibly need. The kitchen had lots of utensils and appliances. But the best part was the backyard. It was perfect for relaxing and eating outside. The location was excellent, within easy walking distance to restaurants, etc. Donna, the owner, was very helpful and responsive to our questions. We would definitely stay there again.
We have stayed at this property for the last three years and have had nothing but a good experience. The house is adorable and the perfect size for myself and my husband. As a bonus, we are able to bring our two small dogs with us. The house is about a 10 min walk to downtown Oak Bluffs and a 5 min drive to the beach. We enjoy walking to town for dinner and not having to worry about finding a parking space. The yard is beautiful too and great for hanging out after a day at the beach. Donna is great to work with and very helpful with any questions we have had.
Walking distance to Beach, town of Oak Buffs, village of victorian gingerbread cottages, restaurants, harbor, bicycle paths, buses, shopping, Circuit Ave game center, bars, ice cream shops, bakeries, coffee shops, lobster hatchery, moped, bicycle, jeep, car, motorcycle rentals, post office, grocery stores and churches.
