About Jennifer and Samimah
We are two longtime sister friends, who met over thirty years ago in college. Jennifer has been visiting the island for over twenty-five years, and Samimah started visiting a few years ago and immediately fell in love with the island. We decided to realize a vision, which we each held independently, and purchased a seaside retreat. We are are delighted to share this dream location with you, at rates which are more than competitive for the location! Martha's Vineyard is a wonderful place to visit in the spring, summer, fall, and winter. Our lovely seaside retreat is an ideal place from which to experience all that the island has to offer.
Jennifer and Samimah purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Jennifer and Samimah chose Oak Bluffs
This property is a gem, and an ideal way to experience this magical island. This property is literally at the sea with spectacular views and easy access to the beach, ferry, walking trails, the adjoining towns, and much more.
What makes this Condo unique
Location, Location, Location! The condo's beach front location and proximity to Circuit Avenue make the Vineyard experience even more spectacular. You can take a short walk along the beach to the picturesque Ocean Park, and stroll into the center of town to the arcade, pizza and ice cream parlors, the famous Back Door Donuts, or simply stroll Circuit Avenue. There are parks and basketball courts within a few blocks of the unit. The Inkwell Beach is literally in front of the condo, and the very popular State Beach is just down the road. The bedrooms are at opposite ends of the condo, and each bedroom has its own full bathroom. There is a very comfortable full size sofa daybed in the living room for relaxing, watching television, watching the sunrise, or sleeping at night, or napping during the day. You can also grab the beach chairs from the unit, relax, or have dinner on the beach. The Oak Bluffs ferry location is just a few blocks away! You can actually walk to the ferry when arriving or departing if you have rolling luggage. We recently installed an air conditioner in the master bedroom, new ceiling fans, and the ocean breeze flows through the unit. Our only regret is that we cannot spend the entire year at the condo. However, we invite you to visit and experience Martha's Vineyard from the vantage point of our seaside sanctuary.

Beautifully designed condo facing the ocean.
Home Away & the owners made this rental very simple. Love it when things go the way this went. Best rental in my 10 years going to Oak Bluffs.

this is a gem by the ocean! the condo is within walking and biking distance of oak bluff downtown and edgartown. this is a safe and peaceful east coast retreat. the owner was readily available and helpful. weather and wildlife at your toes for dipping. thank you for a wonderful vacation!!
Another perfect stay
This was our second time renting this property. The second visit was better than the first. The owners were responsive and helpful as always. In addition, we greatly appreciated the new additions to the home, including air conditioning. There were also a number of other little touches around the home that show the owners are very invested in their guests having a wonderful and relaxing vacation. I would highly recommend this property. Best location on the island.
Great location and comfortable Condo!
This condo met all our vacation needs.
Very nice home and a great location with ocean views.
This home was very clean and bright. Sunrise right out the windows over the ocean. It was also right in the heart of everything. It was perfect for us.
Great location; Not so great amenities or hospitality
The unit is a beachfront location and convenient to the bus stop and downtown Oak Bluffs. The accommodations were basic and there were no efforts by the host to even welcome us (at the very least we should have been provided a bottle of water upon arrival). When we arrived, we could not find the place. We called the host and got a voicemail. We were not contacted until the next afternoon. Thank goodness we didn't run into any other issues that required the assistance of the host. Explicit directions on how to find the unit would have been helpful or at least the host should have asked when we were arriving so she could have been available should problems occur. Also, the host does not provide linens or towels which is inconspicuously indicated on the HomeAway site.
I provide three stars because MV is a lovely place and I always enjoy myself there. However, this property did not offer many amenities or upgrades (e.g., air conditioning throughout unit) and was not worth the price paid. I've had much more elegant accommodations at the lovely inns on MV. If I were to rate the property alone, I would give it 2 stars.
We regret that this renter reported a less than favorable experience. However, the reviews by the other guests, the photographs, and the other aspects of the listing, more fairly and accurately reflect the experience of staying in our lovely home. The view and location are worthy of a 10. However, we provide quality furnishings and amenities to make the stay comfortable and memorable.
Like many owners in Martha's Vineyard who use HomeAway, we are not actually on the island to welcome our guests in the manner of owners of hotels. However, we share our telephone numbers, and contact our guests prior to arrival, as we did with this renter, and intentionally price competitively for the quality, size, and amazing location of our home.
The building, which is a prominent structure in Oak Bluffs, is centrally located, minutes from the ferry, directly in front of the famous Inkwell beach, and very easy to find. As soon as our guests enter the unit, they find the local property manager's telephone number, which is also displayed on the first level of the property in an information window, with instructions to contact in case of emergencies.
The building and most units do not have air conditioning, because the units receive an amazing breeze from the ocean. However, prior to this renter's visit, we added a powerful state of the art air conditioning unit to the master bedroom, although we advertised that there was no air conditioning when she booked, and we did not charge an additional fee. In addition, we had recently added additional furnishings like a chaise lounge, Dyson fan, and other amenities, that the prior renters did not have, but still provided wonderful and favorable reviews, based on their experiences in our home.
We invite prospective renters to read those reviews and contact us if you have any questions.
