Description

Description

Please note: Autumn rentals & prices listed from September 16, 2020, through December 31, 2020, are for Main House occupancy only.

Summer 2021 pricing on calendar includes Main house and guest house (aka Lilac House).

Endless water views, fully updated, and steps from a sandy beach excellent for swimming, our homes have both been gorgeously remodeled and designed with a simple yet sophisticated Martha's Vineyard-meets-California feel.

Our welcoming, centrally-air-conditioned Main House has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 10. The guest house, included in the price/this listing, is also cooled by AC, ocean-facing, included in summer 2020 rentals, and described in more detail below. It sleeps an additional 4 people.

Airy and uncluttered, user-friendly and designed with a modern-vintage aesthetic, the expansive Main House is set back and buffered by a generous lawn -- so you’re still in the Ocean Park/Inkwell Beach area, but with more breathing room. Inside the home has wide-plank pine floors, a new kitchen, new doors & windows, 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/''mud'' 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. Tons of seating (and dining) inside at a large table as well as a butcher-block topped island/bar area, and on the 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 well appointed bedrooms in the Main House -- one downstairs and three upstairs (including a large bedroom with a queen & 2 twins -- the ''Oak Bluffs'' room, which is perfect for sharing). The second-story private deck off the master bedroom offers views of the ocean, as well as Farm Pond. A second porch off 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 and stunning ocean views from both the kitchen and the outdoor dining table (and BBQ area). A third set of first-floor French doors opens to another deck along the charming side-street. The bathrooms are all updated (tiled walk-in shower downstairs, a modern soaking tub upstairs, a separate water-closet on the main floor). There's an open and connected feeling downstairs, and the 3 sets of downstairs French double-doors connect it all to outdoor living at its best on the ocean facing wrap-around porch. (Steps up to the main entrance to the house as well as another set that’s great to use when you’re coming back from the beach and to connect you to the Lilac House/guest house.)

The property is ideally located for beach-going, walk to town & restaurants, and various outdoor/athletic activities. Cross the road and go for a swim. Walk less than 10 minutes and you have your choice of in town and harbor-front 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 long 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 in the Main House, 1 in the master BR and another in the more casual section of the living room area (a DVD player here, along with games and some movies for kids). The guest house offers a third viewing area, especially great for teens, to hang out and watch TV/streaming.

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

Rental includes the ocean-facing, air-conditioned, single-story Guest House (the Lilac House) which has 2 bunk beds (4 twin bed sleeping spaces) and bringing the rental's total sleeping space/number of guests up to 14.

Even if you have a smaller number of vacationers, the additional 'bunk' house is perfect for some members of your party to have their own space. It includes an additional bathroom (shower, toilet, sink) and a full kitchen (stove, refrigerator, sink, no dishwasher), as well as a TV (the rental would then have 3 full bathrooms, 3 TVs and 2 kitchens) and is cooled by a mini-split (AC and heating) unit.

Also, although you don't need a car for our area, we know people often like to bring one, so we purchase TRANSFERABLE round-trip CAR-FERRY RESERVATIONS for key weeks of the summer (if available we give them to you at cost we paid/no mark-up). On-island auto rental is also an option. Best, of course, is to book with the Steamship Authority yourself as soon as you know your dates.

Please email us with any questions!

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 new to owning this gorgeous gem but 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 has a rich history. It's casual, fun, inclusive, bustling. 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.
