Overview

Oak Bluffs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

This warm, cozy home boasts 3 decks that over look Farm Pond and Nantucket Sound. The front deck is perfect for reading a book and has access to the 2nd bedroom. The side deck has an electric awning that shades the area from the morning sun. The seating area and dining table allows you to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and entertaining at night. The master bedroom's deck will delight you with a spectacular view. This is a wonderful setting for sipping a glass of wine and reflecting on the day. With the beach and town just a short walk or bike ride away the home is ideal for families with children and teenagers. The 'great' room (living room, dining room, kitchen combo) is the heart and soul of the house that brings everyone together.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Wonderful, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation at this home on farm pond. The location is perfect for walking into Oak Bluffs, but also for exploring all of Martha's Vineyard. The house was very comfortable and well-appointed. Just perfect for myself, my husband and our 2 teenage daughters. Leigh was a pleasure to work with and we will definitely rent from her again!

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our three daughters had our first visit to Martha's Vineyard. Not knowing where a good place to stay was, it was very helpful to have the owner call me immediately upon my request for the house. She was very informative and I felt like I was making a good choice about the location of the house. The house was adorable and had everything you can imagine. It was really helpful to have the beach chairs and cooler to use! Our favorite part of the house was the fact that the upstairs bedroom had its own deck to overlook the pond and sound. It was beautiful and very private. Our girls had their rooms downstairs and we had ours upstairs. It was perfect. We brought our bikes and really enjoyed biking down to the beach with the "jaws" bridge you can jump off of. The ride was gorgeous with water on both sides of the road. My girls were able to walk to town to get an ice cream etc. and we could walk to get a drink or dinner. House was very clean, great location, and tons of extras. We would definitely stay there again! Loved it!

Perfect Location, Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults and a 5 year old and 9 year old) loved this house so very, very much! The view out over Farm Pond to the ocean is beautiful. This house worked even when it rained for a couple days. Our favorite things: Awesome family room/kitchen combo room, plenty of private space as well (three bedrooms), two full bathrooms, the 3 decks are just so lovely, comfy furnishings, great location -- walk to town, walk to Inkwell beach, bike path to Edgartown starts at the end of the road. It's just perfect. If I could buy a vacation home, this would be it :) The owner was so very kind and easy to work with. We'll be back!

Great location! Great owner!

  • 5 of 5

As someone who has visited the Vineyard for decades, this home has to be in the best location I have ever stayed in. Beautiful water views of Farm Pond and Nantucket Sound. Easy walk into town and the beach. The owner is very friendly, thoughtful and responsive. The house is cute, intimate and clean. Great for a family or couple. It's in a quiet location but there are nearby activities so you don't feel isolated. I strongly recommend this wonderful home!

Absolutely PERFECT house and location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 2 year old son spent a week at this amazing house in June. Let me break down our trip in areas for the skim readers out there.

Location

Amazing. Easy 5 minute walk to Oak Bluffs main town center. 1 minute walk to the beach. Views of the water are fantastic from all areas of the home. The home feels isolated with no homes in front of the house so it definitely feels private which is nice. The ducks come up to the front lawn in the mornings and evenings which is fun for kids to watch too.

House

Very clean and well maintained. Great size with the bedrooms both upstairs and downstairs tucked away from the main kitchen and living area so it was easy to still hang out and not disturb anyone sleeping. The kitchen has everything you need cooking/eating wise. It even has standard spices, ziploc bags, tupperware, etc. so it was really nice not having to bring or go buy the little stuff you don't think of bringing.

Owner

Couldn't have possibly been nicer. Great communication about the house personally calling me within an hour of leaving a voicemail on a Sunday and was happy to answer all my questions and was enthusiastic to share her home with us and happy for us to be enjoying the island for the first time. She makes you feel like your renting the home from a friend instead of an impersonal hotel or stranger. She was even nice enough to search for an item we left at the house a few weeks later and mail it back to us on her own time and expense.

Overall

Amazing time in MV. Can't wait to come back. Perfect house for people wanting to be by water and enjoy the decks, close enough to walk to town, close enough to other areas of the island like Edgartown or Vineyard Haven, and secluded enough to not be vacationing on top of other people.

We hope you'll love this house as much as we did!!!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First time to MV, and we couldn't have picked a better house. The location was perfect, you can walk to town and to the beach. The views were better than the photos allowed. Beyond the pond was a view of the ocean. The home is very bright and airy and open. The ocean breeze was amazing. The house is in A condition (everything is in great shape) and A+ with amenities and being well stocked (the kitchen is like being at home). All the information you need is easily accessible, very renter friendly. The owner, Leigh, was a pleasure to deal with. Someone we would like to have a glass of wine with on one of the three fabulous decks. The house is set back and far apart enough from other houses to have privacy. We will definitely be renting this home again.
