About Sharon Strimling
I have lived on Martha's Vineyard full time for 20 years now, but vacationed there as a child. Martha's Vineyard has always been a very special place to me, and I love it dearly. I found this home about 14 years ago and fell in love with it immediately. A massage therapist on Martha's Vineyard, voted 'Best of the Vineyard' in the Vineyard Gazette, I once did massage out of this house, and people adored being there for their massages! You will see - the home is a true, historic beauty, and has a special feeling to it as well. My favorite morning routine is to go for a run through the beautiful nature trails a short jog away, have a healthy smoothie in the hot tub, and then walk down the street to the local coffee shop for a wonderful cup of tea and to say hi to the locals gathering there. My nieces and nephews on the other hand, get far more excited about the late afternoon or after dinner walk down to the arcade and ice cream shop to lick their ice cream cones while watching the nightlife walk by on Circuit Ave! Oh - and of course, the movie theater down the street calls to them from time to time as well!
Sharon Strimling purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Sharon Strimling chose Oak Bluffs
There is no location on Martha's Vineyard like downtown Oak Bluffs, and nowhere in the world I would rather be. With the coffee shops, restaurants and shops in town, the beach just a couple of blocks away, Ocean park separating the house from the ocean, the Tabernacle a block in the other direction, the Flying Horses carousel for children, Union Chapel with its performances and the harbor just down the street, it just doesn't get any better than this. I will never look to be in any other location on Martha's Vineyard than in the charming and lively town of Oak Bluffs!

Centrally located for all MV experiences
Centrally located for all MV experiences. Close to island transit stops.
Wonderful summer holiday
Beautiful updated house. Sharon is so accommodating always gets back to us so quickly if we have any questions. She’s always willing to help if we need anything
Lovely and just right to walking all around Oaks Bluff
We were on our Honeymoon, we brought our puppy, and it was just the right size and location to walking everywhere. we did have our car, so we were able to explore the rest of the island. I will say the street is a busy one, so there is a lot of traffic. Also noise at night from street from late night party-ers can be heard. The only reason I did not give a 5.
I loved that we could have a little food prep at our unit (full size refrig) as I have certain food allergies.
Lovely, cozy space; excellent location; super charming building
We loved it. Cozy, lovely, convenient.
Lovely flat in the heart of Oak Bluffs
This is a beautifully appointed unit with charm to spare and plenty of space for the two of us. The location was very central, which also meant that there was plenty of road and other noise from pedestrians. This is the only reason I give this property only 4 stars. It is minutes away from shopping, restaurants, the harbor area, the beach and ferry landing. There are wonderful idyllic neighborhoods for walking and enjoying the unique architecture and history of this area.
Sharon is very attentive and gives very detailed and helpful instructions regarding the property, parking, getting there and for the area. She also surprised us with various welcome treats. Unlike other VRBOs we have stayed in, this felt like a true home and not a rental unit.
As first timers to Martha's Vineyard (MV), we arrived by private vehicle, which I would not do the next time we visit. There is fantastic public transport by bus, rental bikes and plenty of taxis if you want to reach more obscure places. You can get to MV by ferry from near the T.F Green airport in Providence Rhode Island. We will definitely be back! We would highly recommend this unit as a comfortable home base for your vacation.
Fantastic location and great pet friendly rental
Fantastic location in Oak Bluffs, convenient to everything you want to see and eat. The oak bluffs beach and park area is about a 5-10 minute walk. Great restaurants within a 2 minute walk, and shops just as close. Amenities were decent, small kitchenette, and bathroom but get the job done. The deck is great. Wish there was an AC unit closer to the bedroom as it was unseasonably warm and the apt was a bit stuffy the first day. But that cleared up with the AC unit in living room and the opening of windows in a few hours and we thoroughly enjoyed the rest of our trip. Working with the owner was simple and we highly recommend this rental. We look forward to returning soon.
This apartment is a very short walk along beautiful Ocean Park from the ferry, a couple of blocks from the islands exceptional transportation system, a couple of blocks to State Beach, a block from exceptional restaurants and bars, practically next door to performances at the Tabernacle or Union Chapel, a block from the Methodist Campgrounds with their spectacular and colorful historic Gingerbread houses, a few blocks from the Harbor with its magnificent sunsets and waterfront restaurants and nightlife, and the ice cream shops, arcade, movie theatres and live local music of Circuit Ave.
The breathtaking bike path from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown, with water on both sides, begins just a few blocks from the house, and running and walking paths through nature trails are a short jog away.
Oak Bluffs truly has everything, and in my heart is the jewel of Martha's Vineyard Island.
