Wonderful, convenient home!
We loved this home! We have been going to the Vineyard for the past 5 years, and this house was the most convenient and charming of all! We loved being steps off of Circuit Avenue, and the house is warm and comfortable. There's plenty of space for a family and the house is well taken care of by the owners. The beach is only a short walk away and the house has beach chairs and coolers for convenience. The best part is sitting on the beautiful porch and relaxing with family!
Thanks, we're delighted you enjoyed the house. We're always trying to improve the experience for our renters.
Great place for a family vacation
We had a lovely time at this house. We have stayed on island in Oak Bluffs before and were pleased with this location and all that the house has to offer. It is a great bonus that things like beach chairs and coolers were available for usage. Mary Alane was very responsive and easy to work with. The air conditioning was a great bonus especially on 80 degree day with a 2 month old. We will be back!
Thanks. We enjoy sharing our home and love for the Vineyard with renters.
Beautiful charming house, short stroll to the town
This vacation home made me feel at home! The description was accurate and the photos are current. The house was clean and well kept, the owner takes pride by keeping the facilities updated. I enjoyed sleeping next to the window in the single bed middle room and with the window open I heard the sounds and smells of the harbor and the restautants. The town center, or the circuit, was next-door and I enjoyed grabbing a morning coffee with a walk around the harbor followed by hours of porch sitting in the large wrap around porch with a hammock. For meals I had many options to grocery shop, eat in the large variety of restaurants, or grab carryout from the dive bar. The circuit includes a variety of shopping and the famous flying horses carousel.
I never needed a car. The ferry is a quick 5 minute walk through the beautiful park, food and shopping is a block away, and the beautiful houses of the camp ground are directly across the street.
I felt at home and will certainly return and spend much more time porch sitting and experiencing island life.
The owner was kind and responded quickly. She is well experienced as a property owner as helpful hints regarding trash pickup and amenity controls were well posted and up to date.
I can't wait to come back.
