About Heidi Modaro
We had been renting in OB for 13 years and dreaming of the day we could own! We wish to share a few weeks of our beach cottage with those who also hope to enjoy the magic of Martha's Vinyard!
Heidi Modaro purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Heidi Modaro chose Oak Bluffs
Authentic, charming, spacious and peaceful! Easy walking distance to OB beach, ferry and town yet nestled on a quiet beach street. Walking distance to Ocean Park, basketball/tennis courts and baseball fields. Easy access to beach walk and bike paths.

This property is a delight! Great location in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to everything. We hope to be able to return next year.
Loved this cottage, it is so cute and roomy! Ideal location to the ocean, park and Circuit Avenue at the end of the road. Easy walk to everywhere!
Beautiful cottage close to Circuit Ave. and beach
This beautiful home was our little piece of heaven for a week. The owners were great and incredibly easy to work with. The layout of the house is perfect and each bedroom had its own unique charm from the furniture to the decorations. A quintessential Vineyard cottage. The front porch is big with plenty of chairs to sit and rock while you relax and people watch. We could walk to Circuit Ave. very quickly and in the other direction was a super quick walk to the beach. We were extremely happy with this rental.
Beautiful historic lovingly restored Victorian wonderful walkable location
Oak Bluffs is great location to see the whole island..local bus short stroll from the house...porch and private backyard great spaces for relaxing with a glass of wine at happy hour or a cup of coffee
Great location in quaint home
This picture perfect little cottage offered the perfect location to enjoy all that Oak Bluffs has to offer. It was a very quick walk to Circuit Ave, the Flying Horses, great restaurants, Backdoor Donuts, parks, the ferry, and Inkwell Beach. This would be an excellent choice for a family not wishing to bring a car to the island (although I'd recommend it to explore the other wonderful towns and beaches on Martha's Vineyard). It was kind of a drag having to bring our own linens and towels and do much of the cleaning after our stay considering the cost, but that is standard for home renting on this island. However, when packing one car for a family of five the linens take up a ton of space. We have stayed at other homes that offer use of their bikes and beach chairs, but with this rental you provide your own. All in all, the house was well appointed, functioned in all ways properly, pleasant and comfortable. We would definitely recommend it to friends and family and would consider staying here again if we return to Martha's Vineyard.
Great cottage and location!
Loved this cottage, plenty of room, great location, close to town. The place was updated, clean and the decor was perfect, every room was decorated in a really fun, coastal style! We had a great week and hope to return!
Oak Bluffs is a town located on the island of Martha's Vineyard in Dukes County, Massachusetts, United States.. It is one of the island's principal points of arrival for summer tourists, and is noted for its 'gingerbread cottages' and other well-preserved late-nineteenth-century buildings.
There are four public beaches in the town: Eastville Beach, facing Vineyard Haven Harbor and adjacent to the entrance to Lagoon Pond; Oak Bluffs Town Beach, bordering Nantucket Sound just south of the Steamship Authority Pier; Hart Haven Beach, further to the south; and Joseph Sylvia State Beach, a barrier beach (shared by Oak Bluffs and Edgartown that separates Sengekontacket Pond from Nantucket Sound. State Beach is punctuated by two inlets that connect the pond to the ocean. The smaller of the two is spanned by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Bridge, which lies wholly within Oak Bluffs, and the larger by the American Legion Bridge, the midpoint of which is the boundary between Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. The formal names of the bridges are generally ignored by residents in favor of the traditional designations 'Little Bridge' and 'Big Bridge (jaws bridge)'.
Oak Bluffs has a small, tightly enclosed harbor that draws large numbers of recreational boaters, and serves as a year-round home port to a small number of fishing boats. Seasonal passenger ferries to Falmouth, Hyannis, and Nantucket dock along the east side of the harbor, as does a high-speed ferry to Quonset Point, RI. The seasonal car-and-truck-ferry service operated by the Woods Hole, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority docks outside the harbor, at a long pier projecting into Nantucket Sound, as does the fast ferry that provides seasonal service to New Bedford.
The town, ferry and beach are all within in 1.5 blocks of our cottage and our street quaintly noted by many historical cottages. The main area of town is noted by shops, restaurants, carousel, bike/moped rentals along Circuit Avenue and the Harbor. Our favorite restaurants include JImmy Seas (seafood soup is extraordinary), The Lookout Tavern (BEST warm Lobster roll and chowder), Nancy's (best outdoor deck, drinks, food combo) and late night Back Door Donuts (MUST get an Apple Fritter)!!!
