Great location Cottage quaint and cozy

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I were very happy with our trip to Martha's vineyard. It was everything we hoped for and more! We brought another couple and they agree. We plan to make this an annual event and would definitely book this home again. Coming to the vineyard late September early October might be a little late as far as the weather is concerned. Rainy all week. We will make that adjustment next season. I'm told August early September is ideal.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review of our home. We take great pride in making our home as comfortable as possible for our guests. September is a beautiful time of year. I also recommend the last week of August.

Overall, it was a good deal for the price. Lovely cottage, great location, close to all the venues.

When we first drove up and saw the porch we were excited. We knew immediately that this was going to be a most memorable experience. The home was comfortable, clean and quiet ... just the right atmosphere for a restful, easy going weekend vacation with the ladies!

A wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage provided a perfect location for our family - a quiet neighborhood, close enough to walk to town & to the beach. The house was very clean with air conditioning available. We would definitely rent it again. Many thanks.

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.)
