Lovely cottage, well-located; caring hosts

  • 4 of 5

With only two of us, I had thought we wouldn’t really need more than one bedroom, but we ended up using all of them (kept the luggage in one, the shoes and sport stuff in another, etc.) – which really allowed us to spread out and relax. The front porch was well-used for sitting out in the morning and some afternoons/evenings, and the dining room table made a great work space for me. We didn’t end up cooking at all (even though I had thought that would be a major attraction of renting a house with an outdoor grill and a lobster pot), but did make good use of the refrigerator and counter for fruit, cheese, snacks, etc. The drive-through your property (with entrance/exit on both streets came in handy more than once). We “used” the whole island, but found Oak Bluffs to be a great base, and spent several evenings in town.

We would gladly return to this house the next time we’re in Martha’s Vineyard, and would definitely recommend it to others.

In terms of amenities, the light and air throughout the house is perfect, the air conditioning worked well when needed, and most of the décor and furnishings and little signs are pleasing/attractive. (We loved the sign reminding us to relax.)

This is my favorite vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

I come to MV every year for the last 10 years and each time I have rented the cottage at 3 pacific avenue. Very nice cottage that is well-kept and maintained. It is minutes from the marina and the beach. Cottage is on bus route and a block or so down from the Oak Bluffs Library. The location is suburb as it is minutes from downtown Oak Bluffs. Roomy enough to sleep 8, but 6 is the ideal number for our group of girlfriends that come every year. It's worth the spend :-)

I absolutely love this house.

  • 5 of 5

It's warm and cozy. Best of all it is walking distance from shopping, restaurants. I will definitely come back and recommend others to rent.
