About The Millers

This family cottage has been lovingly cared for by our parents and now by their three children. We have a lifetime of family memories here and hope you will too. It is on a quiet, safe street for children. You will love being able to walk downtown for dinner or ice cream as we have done with our families.

The Millers purchased this cottage in 1977

Why The Millers chose Martha's Vineyard

Our cottage is charming as you would imagine a summer, island home. It is not modern although we do have the modern amenities such as high speed wireless and HD tv. It is a place to relax, unwind and find some serenity.

Perfect September Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Friday to Sunday for a family trip. The cottage is clean with a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor shower, screened in porch- which was great for appetizers and wine before walking into town!- and a great front porch. The beds were comfortable and we easily fit 6 guests Friday night and 8 on Saturday when two more family members were able to join us. Easy walking into Oak Bluffs and around East Chop. Easy check in and check out, the owners are very responsive and helpful! I would definitely stay here again.

Charming Rental that feels like Home

  • 5 of 5

Annual trips to Martha's Vineyard has me renting many homes on Island. This home had everything.. and I do mean everything, just open a cabinet. From coffee to sugar to wine openers to everything needed to eat and open lobster and clams. Clamming tools and all your grilling needs! (daily/weekly clamming license need to be purchased $25/$75- we filled a 40 gallon cooler!) The outdoor shower was so nice and I didn't take a shower inside the whole week. The property is a simple 8-10 min walk to Circuit Ave/Downtown Oak Bluffs and less to the Harbor, Our Market grocery store, and Illumination Night of the Ginger Bread Houses. Not sure why we rented a car- yes its that close. There is a AC unit in the Master Bedroom which gets the room COLD. The other 2 rooms do have some day time heat but what are you doing there during the day!? Get to the Beach, go Clamming, or go shopping and sight seeing!! There is no other AC is in the house. You will get beautiful cool nights with the windows open you'll find yourself reaching for a comforter when sleeping. Need to rent or bring your own linens, which the owner can recommend, and the beds are all comfortable although I slept on the Daybed on the back screened in patio on our first night. The house is located off the beaten path, on a dirt road and surround by trees and fresh air. The owners are GREAT and RESPONSIVE and will give you all the info, tips, etc. to enjoy your stay! A wonderful place to relax after a day of activities, quiet, and quaint If you are looking for a rental that provides all your needs and gives you the feeling of "life on Island" this is it.

Great location in OB.

  • 5 of 5

Very close to town on a quiet dirt road. We are a family of 6 which was a little bit of a squeeze but we still fit comfortably. We enjoyed the screened in porch in the evenings, had family dinners in the dining room, and had an easy walk to town. At minute walk to the end of the road Our kids were able go to town on their own. It was an older home but had everything we were looking for in a vacation rental. Owners were also responsive and accommodating.

Great Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home with some girl friends for a week. The location is great its nice and quite but a very short walk in to Oaks Bluff. We went without a car or rental so we walked into town a lot and took cabs anywhere else we wanted to go. The house is fully equipped as well for any beach outing you may go on. Other then our own personal belongings all we had to bring was sheets and bath towels. It made traveling with out a car that much easier. We spent the majority of our time in the house out on the screened in porch. Shelly was also extremely helpful and checked with us to make sure we were settled. I can't say enough about our week, we had a blast. Cant wait to go back!!!

Very Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend, and the place was much more spacious than you can see from the pictures. The location was great, five minute walk to downtown OB and about ten minute walk to the ferry. The home was extremely well kept and had nearly all of the amenities you could need for a weekend/week at the beach. Most importantly, Shelly was extremely responsive and accommodating during the whole process. I would definitely stay here again!
