More about the neighborhood...
The renowned inkwell beach is steps away with the charming oak bluffs harbor, ferry and quaint main street (restaurants, shopping) just a 5-6 minute stroll way. The house is on a quiet street in a central location with newly rebuilt Niantic park tennis courts, new playground and basketball courts right down the street. The Big Park (Waban Park) is right behind the house perfect for flying kites on the ocean breeze or kicking around a soccer/football. The spacious house has 5 bedrooms with high speed internet, DVD and Cable TV.

Outside Dining & Porch: If your family and friends love living outside and walking back and forth to the beach then look no further. The house is literally 50 steps away from Inkwell beach. We have plenty of lounge areas - our side yard (afternoon sun) includes a large outdoor table (seating for 10) with a large umbrella, lounge chairs, porch breakfast table with morning sun, porch sofa, porch rockers, beach chairs, beach towels and comfy lawn chairs. The large porch wraps around to allow shade seekers on the porch to easily converse with sunbathers in the garden. There are beds of roses, hydrangeas and flowers to enjoy. In addition, there is a gas grill. In 2016, we have all brand-new appliances in the kitchen include gas stove with electric convection baking oven, extra large double door fridge, extra large washer & dryers. With a brand new on demand hot water heater and new electrical wiring in 2015-2016, everyone can take hot showers while doing laundry and the dishwasher. In addition - TV, DVD and Wi-Fi on the property.
Sleeping Well: While we believe it is the ocean breeze that gives you such a good nights sleep here, we also have high quality mattresses, pillows, blankets and linens in all the bedrooms. In the two master bedrooms, the pillow-top mattress are covered in 600-1000 count cotton sheets for maximum comfort. In addition, each master bedroom has an iPOD/iPHONE *adapters for the new iPhone 6 available* music docking station for those of you who want to hear your favorite tunes while you drift off to sleep or get up early to watch the stunning ocean sunrise.
This is our home and we are happy to invite you to enjoy the house. We ask you to treat this home like your own, with care and appreciation as one of the oldest homes in Oak Bluffs.
