About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Modern home close to downtown

The perfect layout for families with an open floor plan on the main level and first floor en suite master bedroom with a king size bed. The second floor has one bedroom with a queen bed and a large second bedroom with two twin trundle beds and a sleep sofa. A large full bath is shared by these two bedrooms. The kitchen is fully stocked with all new cookware, small appliances and service for 12. Located on a quiet street in a family neighborhood, you have a front and back yard complete with deck and outdoor shower. There is also an unfinished basement with a ping pong table. The house was completely refurnished in 2013 with new living room, dining room and bedroom furniture. We have also upgraded televisions, cable and internet services. This house will allow you to be close to the action of a busy island town but in a quiet family neighborhood.

About Michelle Orban

My husband and I have been coming to the Vineyard together for 20 years. I have been coming to the island my entire life. We have always stayed in Oak Bluffs within walking distance to town and could not imagine buying anywhere else. We live year round in Upstate New York. We hope you will fall in love with the Vineyard and make it your annual family vacation spot!

Michelle Orban purchased this house in 2013

Why Michelle Orban chose Oak Bluffs

We love Oak Bluffs and wanted to be near downtown. This house is the perfect combination of proximity to town but with the quiet feeling of being in a neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

AIR-CONDITIONED! It is hard to find properties that are air conditioned on the island. This house has four permanent units (not window units!) that allow you to keep the entire house cool or just your bedrooms if you want to leave the sliding glass door to the deck open. We love to cook and entertain and this house provides for both. The open floor plan makes entertaining a breeze. A huge dining room table will comfortably seat 12 when fully extended and has sliders to the deck. The 50 inch HD tv and Performance internet plan makes even rainy days comfortable.

Pleasant Week on the Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a convenient location, near to both Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. The home was clean and provided ample space for the five adults in our party. Having cable TV in both the living/family room and the master bedroom was helpful. And, though, it was kind of rainy and humid during our stay on the Vineyard, the wall unit air conditioners helped to dehumidify the home promptly.

Beautiful and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Michelle is awesome. We stayed during 4th of July and a had a great experience! Very comfortable for a group of 6 ladies. The home is very well kept and exceeded our expectations. The photos don't do it justice! Michelle was very attentive and answered all of our questions in a very timely manner. We'd definitely return!
