Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is adorable and extremely well-appointed. I particularly appreciated the quality of the linens and kitchen utensils. My daughter is an art student and she was delighted to find a drafting table. The front porch was a lovely place to sit. The neighborhood was quiet and we enjoyed chatting with the neighbors. We walked to town every night for dinner and spent time at the beach. We were unable to get a ferry reservation for the car but were able to walk from the RI Fast Ferry to the house. Easy to catch a bus anywhere on the island. We would definitely return.

Cozy, peaceful, bright and clean home

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to the Vineyard every summer in August for the last 20 years. This year this home was booked like every other home I inquired about. When the homeowner responded he mentioned he would accommodate any other dates available and we decided to go in June. To our suprise we had the best time, great weather and no long lines. This home is one the best we rented and I would recommend it. It is clean, bright and comfortable. The best part was the house is located on the hill of East Chop area and it is a short walk to town. We rented bikes and enjoyed the sightseeing with our girls. The cottage is well maintained we had lunch on the back deck and enjoyed sitting on the front porch for relaxation. I think I will rent in June again I really enjoyed the Island and it was truly a relaxing vacation.

Charming, peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home with my husband and two friends. It was the perfect size for 4 adults (and could have accommodated a kid or two as well). The home is extremely well-maintained and clean, bright and airy. It looks just like the pictures. The neighborhood is quiet and filled with trees, and an easy walk or bike to the center of Oak Bluffs. We had as much fun cooking or doing nothing in the house when it rained as we did outside seeing the island. The owners were very accommodating and answered questions quickly. We hope to come back next year!
