Description

Description

Endless water views, remodeled, fully updated, and steps from a sandy beach excellent for swimming, our walk-to-town home has been gorgeously redone and designed with a simple yet sophisticated Martha's Vineyard-meets-California feel.

Airy and uncluttered, with central air conditioning, and wide open ocean views, the home has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 9. We have the rare (in Oak Bluffs) benefit of being buffered by a generous lawn; so you can enjoy all the beach-going and socializing of Inkwell Beach and the Ocean Park area, but we are set back a little, with more breathing room.

Inside you'll find wide-plank pine floors, a kitchen with a cook's view to the sea, and pro-style appliances including: dishwasher, gas range, French door refrigerator with ice maker & filtered water, and a full-sized washer/dryer set apart in its own laundry room -- there's a back entrance here, off the wraparound porch, for easy access to, and from, the enclosed outdoor shower (outdoor shower is in addition to subway tile/glass door indoor shower). There is a king size bed in a larger than usual (for OB) master BR. Plentiful seating inside at a large table as well as at bar stools at the butcher-block topped island/bar area, as well as the spacious, level, wraparound porch (3-sided). You're perfectly situated for the annual fireworks, dining/coffee/cocktails outside or just watching the world go by.

There are 4 updated and well appointed bedrooms -- one downstairs and three upstairs (including a large bedroom that feels like two bedrooms joined, with a queen & 2 twins -- the ''Oak Bluffs'' room). The second-story private deck off the master bedroom offers views of the ocean, as well as Farm Pond. A second porch off of the second & third upstairs bedrooms also has ocean views. Two sets of French doors from the kitchen and dining area on the first floor open out to a larger portion of the deck (with BBQ and an outdoor table), and stunning ocean views. Another set of French doors opens from the dining area; a third opens to the long deck along the charming side-street.

The bathrooms are all updated: a tiled walk-in shower downstairs, a modern soaking tub (not a shower) upstairs, a separate water-closet on the main floor. Thus, to state it clearly: 1 indoor shower (+ sink) downstairs, 1 outdoor shower (the best!), 1 bathroom with a tub upstairs (with a toilet & sink). There is also a water-closet downstairs (toilet & small sink).

There's an open and connected feeling in the kitchen/dining/living room areas, and the multiple French double-doors connect it all to outdoor-living at its best. (There are a few steps up to the main entrance to the house, as well as another set that are great from when you’re coming back from the beach, to connect you to either of the 2 outdoor showers, and the guest house.)

Cross the road and go for a swim. Walk less than 10 minutes and you have your choice of restaurants & cafes -- you'll never have to search for a parking space to dine in-town in the high season. We're also walkable from the Oak Bluffs ferry docking (the Steamship Authority OB). And it's a very short distance (5 houses) to the lovely bike path that runs along the island's edge & sands of State Beach and into Edgartown. There is also a great park/playground/tennis & basketball courts (Niantic Park) nearby (another short and pleasant walk).

For rainy days and taking a break there are two TVs: 1 in the master BR and another in the more casual section of the living room area.

Beds in total: 1 king bed, 2 queen beds, 1 full sized bed, and 2 twin beds.

Put another way, the sleeping spaces lay out like this:
- upstairs Master BR - 1 bed, King
- upstairs 2nd BR - 1 bed, Queen - this bed has a footboard
- upstairs 3rd BR - a ''pass thru'' large BR with 1 queen and two twins (twins are in their own area and what feels like their own room, but there is open space between this area and the area/room with the queen)
- downstairs 4th BR - 1 full (a.k.a. 'double') bed - this bed has a footboard

Also, please note that we are on a neighborly, family-friendly, and just generally friendly, street. While our house is further apart from others, it is still in view and within hearing range of others who live or are vacationing nearby. We also own two smaller houses that are essentially next-door and behind the main house. (You can see the one in the back in the first photo above. The other one is ocean facing and in front of that smaller house.) They may be occupied by others (including us/the owners) during your stay. In other words, if you're looking for a really private retreat, with nothing but greens all around you and no neighbors within view, this area (and our home) is not the best choice for you. (The towns of Chilmark, Aquinnah and West Tisbury are ideal for a more secluded experience.)

And, although you don't need a car for our area, if you'd like to bring one, we often have TRANSFERABLE round-trip CAR-FERRY RESERVATIONS for key weeks of the summer for cost we paid (no mark-up). On-island auto rental is also an option. Best of course is to book yourself with The Steamship Authority in advance.

And our no-pets policy is firm; violating it, or housing more than 9 people/occupants violates the lease, and you must provide your own linens (bed sheets & towels).

Please email us with any questions!

Fantastic Home!

My extended family stayed at Cutty's View for a week in June 2021. The home (and guest house) were impeccably clean upon arrival, and were well-stocked in anything you would need for a week's vacation.

The owner (Laurie) was fantastic to work with, both prior to the stay and was happy to answer the few questions we had upon arrival. The location could not be better - a short 10 minute walk to downtown. The porch is unbelievable - comfy furniture, and wonderful water views. The mattresses all seem new, and were very comfortable. The kitchen was top of the line (both the appliances and the pots/pans/dishes).

My favorite part...the outdoor shower - it's fantastic - great water pressure & good location.

I highly recommend this rental - you will not be disappointed!

Our Time to Exhale

This house is the perfect getaway, and friendly, quaint Oak Bluffs is now our favorite part of MV. We woke to tranquil sunrises every day and caught golden sunsets at the Oak Bluffs pier most evenings. In between, the house was the perfect launching point for bike rides, beach trips and sightseeing all over the island. Laurie has created a home with just the right touch of casual elegance, comfort and convenience, that we at once felt both indulgent and at home. It truly was our dream vacation home, and, for a neatnik like me, I appreciated especially that is so clean and well maintained. Laurie is a terrific person and host. We can't thank her enough for making our stay so enjoyable. show more show less

Thank you so much! What a delight it was to have you and your family at the house. You are excellent guests; kind, communicative and thoughtful, and we always love to see people discover, or rediscover, all there is to do on Martha's Vineyard, and the particular charms of Oak Bluffs. I'm so glad that your return to a place that is such a lovely part of your personal history went well.

Amazing Property near Oak s

We rented Laurie's oceanfront home during the July 4 week. The rental process was seamless through We Need A Vacation (WNAV) and with Laurie, the homeowner. Laurie was so hospitable and provided key tips and recommendations, as this was our first trip to MV. Her home was absolutely amazing and we felt right at home. It accommodated our large group between the main house and the Lilac house. Both are beautifully decorated and she has thought of every detail within each house. In addition, it is in walking distance to Oak Bluffs and minutes from beaches, VH and Edgartown. It makes for the perfect getaway, and we look forward to returning again soon! show more show less

Thank you so much for taking such extraordinary care of the house! It was a true pleasure getting to know you, and I loved how you and your family dove right in to all there is to do here on the island. We'd be thrilled to have you back again any time!

Oak Bluffs Dream House!

Our stay in this incredible house was amazing! We have stayed in many houses on the Island over the years, but this one is now our favorite! The house itself is absolutely stunning, and has been recently renovated to perfection. It is a classic 1800's Oak Bluffs "cottage" with beautiful new wide plank oak floors, open beams and all the charming details you would expect from a house of this period. The best part is that with all new doors, windows, kitchen and A/C, the house is quiet, clean, cool and dry, which is a huge bonus for those of us with allergies that have a hard time with the musty mold smell of some of the older homes on the Vineyard.

And the View! Views of the ocean from almost every room in the house, and views of the salt pond from others. The beach is across the street..... across the street! Five minute walk to the beach and ten minute walk to Circuit Ave, Campground and restaurants.

The front porch is everything you dream of while on vacation. It was hard to leave some mornings because the porch was so peaceful. We ended most days relaxing on the front porch as well. Lastly, we really appreciated that there is a bedroom on the main floor in addition to the three upstairs. We had my mom with us who is 83 and has limited mobility. She was perfectly safe and happy in the beautiful downstairs bedroom with bathroom just a few steps away.

The home owners were helpful with our questions and request, easy to reach and thoughtful about what we might need during our stay. We are already looking forward to next years stay!

Great experience in thoughtfully presented house

We were first timers to the island. The house was ideally situated within walking distances to all the attractions and venues in Oak Bluffs. Waking up to the views of the Atlantic Ocean overlooking the beach set each day off right! The house was well equipped with all the amenities and conveniences you could ever need. The host was very thoughtful in their preparations and offerings to enhance both the design of the home and the functionality of living in the house.

Thank you so much, Daniel! I’m so glad you and your lovely family enjoyed your time at the house and on Martha’s Vineyard. And we so appreciate the excellent care you took of our home! Here’s hoping we cross paths on the Vineyard again!

Beautiful Home - Oak Bluffs

We had an amazing time at the MV house. It worked well for my family and I (there's a guest cottage on the property as well). The house is newly renovated but still feels and carries that Martha's Vineyard charm. The renovation is BEAUTIFUL! I think everyone who stayed with us said it multiple times. We spent most of our time in the kitchen and on the -- plentiful -- decks and huge porch. We'd usually walk into town once a day for coffee or supplies. It's a beautiful walk along the water or through the neighboring streets. Everything we needed was there (kitchen supplies, towels, comfy beds, etc) and mostly new. We never met the owners but they were great and quick to respond. I'd certainly recommend this rental to anyone looking. Overall, we had an amazing time and have already booked again for this year! show more show less

Best spot on the Vineyard

You won't get a better place to stay. Not only was Laurie an amazing and easily accessible host to book, contact, and communicate with throughout our stay when in need, the place was immaculate and has everything you need. The location is a dream - you wake up to the sound of the ocean. The wraparound porch, beautiful and tasteful design aesthetic and overall attention to practicality and comfort made us feel extremely at ease. It was an absolute pleasure staying here, and we're already excited to book next year! Highly recommend this gem. show more show less

We are relatively new to renting this beloved gem, after updating it for style, use and comfort, but we are long-time lovers of Oak Bluffs and the Vineyard. Happy to help you with advice about the area, which we think is the best spot on the best street (steps from a fantastic swimming beach, walking distance to town but in a more peaceful area).

What is special about this property?
The house is walking distance not only from the restaurants and fun of town and the harbor, but also the OB ferry, and close to the bike path to Edgartown.

What is special about your town?
Oak Bluffs is casual, fun, inclusive, and bustling, with a richly meaningful history. Loads to do both on the water and on land. We are steps from the famous ''Inkwell'' town beach and a bike ride up the town bike path to State Beach & Edgartown.
