Description

The ''Ginger Bread House''....Location, Location, Location! This cozy 3 bedroom house is located steps from downtown on a family neighborhood side street. Stroll among the Gingerbread houses, or ink(to town for groceries, dining and fun...or pack a tote and stroll to the end of our street to Inkwell beach. Everything is within a comfortable walking distance, including the ferry, playground, fishing pier, Flying Horses carousel, churches and shuttle buses that can take you around the island.

Transferable ferry reservations available (at cost) for the week of September 3-10. However, everything is so handy, you don't need a car. If you do want your car on the island, there is off-street parking for two cars in front of the house.

This quaint home features a living room with flat-screen TV, comfy sectional sofa, hardwood flooring downstairs, bathroom with shower, and 3 bedrooms and a small half bath upstairs. Queen bed in the master, double bed in the middle room, and 3 twins in the ''kids' room''. The kids' room also has a TV in case you need to find a space for them to go and entertain themselves while the adults unwind after a day on the beach. There's also a TV in the master bedroom. There's a private hot/cold outdoor shower off the back porch too. BBQ on the private back patio or relax on the front porch and say Hi to the neighbors as they stroll by.

Window air conditioners in the living room and one of the bedrooms plus several fans are plenty to cool the entire house during hot spells. However for those cooler spring/fall evenings, there is electric heat upstairs and down.

Perfect for a family or a romantic getaway. This is a weekly rental property however 4 night minimum stays will be considered during during parts of the autumn.

    Little Slice of Heaven

    We just arrived home from another wonderful stay in this home - and per usual, it was perfect! You can not beat the location - walk to the beach, downtown OB, the harbor, etc. The house itself is so cozy and well maintained. We've loved seeing the new additions over the years - our favorite being the transformation of the backyard - it's truly a wonderfully tranquil extension of the living space - perfect for dinners, quiet reading time, family games or just sitting and enjoying the salt air. (although my husband might argue that the dishwasher is his favorite addition, lol!)

    Our time at the Ginger Bread House has become a cherished family tradition that we hope to continue for many years to come!

    Our family had a great time at the Gingerbread Cottage. Walking distance to the park for the kids was a huge bonus. Close to downtown but not too close. We really enjoyed walking and exploring all the houses. Thank you Frank!

    Wonderful location; beautiful cozy home

    We have spent two summer vacations at this home. We love the coziness and convenience of the home. It is in walking distance to the beach, many enjoyable restaurants, and Circuit Avenue. There is a park close by for the kids to play in. Frank and Amelie are very gracious and responsive. This is a perfect place to enjoy a week or two on the Vineyard!

    You can't beat the location. This was two steps away from the tranquility of the gingerbread cottages and also our favorite ice cream shops on Circuit Ave. The little front porch was a lovely place to enjoy our morning coffee while the kids played inside. Frank went out of his way to make sure we were happy and comfortable. Much appreciated.

    Thanks, Frank and family, for sharing your wonderful Gingerbread home with us, and for your helpful information and attentiveness before and during our stay! We had a wonderful long weekend there over Memorial Day, and had a spectacular time. The location couldn't be better: a quiet street but in easy walking distance from everything in Oak Bluffs, and easy to get on our bikes to get to the bike trail, or walk across the street to enjoy exploring the houses at the Camp Meeting Association. The house had everything we needed, and the weather was nice enough that we could eat outside, enjoy some ice cream on the upstairs porch, and even use the outdoor shower. Thanks for calling to check in; it was perfect! And I always wanted to know what it's like to live in one of the great little houses at the Camp Meeting association, now I know! :)

    Thanks very much. Glad you enjoyed our cottage. Regards, Frank and Trina

    This home was perfect for our vacation. 3 adults and 2 smaller children and there was still an extra bed. The best thing about this cottage was the location. We literally walked everywhere because it was all within a mile. From the shops, the beach, the restaurants, the bowling alley, and the parks and playgrounds we never found ourselves being bored. Coming back after a busy day we always felt welcome and comfortable. We made dinner 4 out of the 7 nights we stayed and found everything we needed (and more!) in order to prepare each meal. I know we would love the opportunity to stay in this cottage in the future, and dealing with Frank made everything easier. He answered any questions we had and always made sure we were enjoying our stay. I have no complaints what so ever, and highly recommend this home to anyone looking to have a great vacation on the Vineyard. show more show less

    We had a great week. The Gingerbread House is convenient to the adorable Oak Bluffs. Convenient to getting around the entire island. The home is small but very efficient The owner was very attentive before our trip and got a nice welcome call which was lovely. I would return! Everything was comfortable and pristine!

    We have been Martha's Vineyard summer residents for many years. Trina and Mindy are sisters and 3rd generation islanders, while Frank followed Trina to the island during our college years. Frank & Trina's daughter Amelie, a 4th generation islander, manages the properties. We have been trying to make sure that all our guests are comfortable and have a memorable vacation. Our own summer cottages are nearby in Oak Bluffs, so it is likely that you will have a nearby go-to person if you have any questions.

    What is special about this property?
    1. The ''Ginger Bread House'' was built by Frank's parents and updated by our daughter Amelie. The property has a long family history, a summer home to several generations of kids, parents & grandparents. The house is compact but has a variety of family friendly features. It's located a very short walking distance to Circuit Avenue, the center of Oak Bluffs, with all it's restaurants, night spots, piers, churches, beaches, grocery store, arcades and playground. We have recently added a side patio and a canopy above the main patio - providing plenty of seating for outdoor dining, gas grill, etc. The living room is comfortable with a sectional sofa and easy chairs, with wifi and a wall-mounted TV.
    2. While the ''Ginger Bread House'' provides an in-town experience, ''Vanessa's Hideaway'' is on a sandy lane directly on a saltwater pond that'shome to a friendly sea serpentnamed Vanessa. It was built by Mindy with a little help from Frank's Dad in the 1960's. It has wonderful water views, but is only a short walk to the center of Oak Bluffs and all it's activities. It's a very short walk to the Inkwell Beach. The house provides a pleasant waterside deck, a beautiful outdoor shower, plenty of outdoor seating, plus a great indoor environment. There's a living room with a couple of couches, TV and wifi, nice dining area and kitchen, all in an open concept arrangement. Two bedrooms are upstairs, and one is down. Plus there's a comfy enclosed front porch with a daybed.

    What is special about your town?
    Oak Bluffs has been a well known vacation spot since the 1800's - with Victorian gingerbread houses a short walk from the houses. The oldest functional merry-go-roundin the United States is nearby and the Inkwell Beach is just down the street. The in-town beaches are wonderful, but there's plenty of other beaches a short drive away. The fishing pier and charter fishing boats, basketball and tennis courts, donut shop, updated playground, the ferry terminal, band concerts in Ocean Park and so many restaurants are really close by. You can also take a convenient bus to all the other towns on Martha's Vineyard.
