Description

Description

Steps from the beach and a short walk to the Oak Bluffs restaurants, shops, harbor and ferry docking, this home has water views, is fully air-conditioned, with an upper and lower deck.

The sleeping space is upstairs, with a nice sized bedroom with lots of windows/light, views of the ocean and Farm Pond, a queen-sized bed, bureau, TV, closet space, and a tucked-away stacked washer/dryer.

An efficient, newly installed, mini-split AC system is in each floor of the home.

The kitchen/dining area pictured is on the first floor. The round table seats two very comfortably while tucked against the wall. Pulled out, with the table leaf up, it can seat four (but then doesn't leave much walking space in the room). The kitchen has ample work-space, a fridge, 4-burner gas range/stove, sink, microwave, plates, glasses, and pots & pans. The bathroom is very small, but functional (shower, sink, toilet), and is also on the first floor. Just outside, on the side deck, is a more spacious and enclosed outdoor shower that we, and most guests, favor.

Wood flooring throughout (painted wood downstairs).

There is a smaller deck off the bedroom upstairs, with views of the ocean and Farm Pond. The first-floor side deck leads to a shelled BBQ area, and there is a front deck, with outdoor dining table & chairs.

There is off-street parking for one car (only), though the area is extremely walkable.

The Nest is a charming, cozy getaway if you want to be close to the beach, enjoy ocean breezes & views, and stay within walking distance to the town and the harbor. We are also just a few houses away from access to the bike path that runs along State Beach and into Edgartown.

Keep in mind, there is no additional/unphotographed ''living room'' area downstairs in the house (you can see the day bed, as well as the seating area for dining, and the kitchen area, in the photos), and occupants of this home need to be respectful of neighbors, including occupants of the Main House (''Cutty's View'' also listed for rent on this site -- see listing # 31591).

Please Note: Our no-pets policy is firm; violating it, or housing more than 2 occupants without the landlord's prior approval, violates the lease. Also you must provide your own linens (meaning bed sheets & towels - we provide pillows and quilts/blankets).

Great rental for 2 in MV

As advertised this is a small place with a good sized bedroom upstairs and comfortable bed (bring sheets). Living area, kitchen and small bathroom downstairs; more room than a hotel.

Great location just back from the beach - glimpses from upstairs and down. Short walk to Oak Bluffs downtown and ferries. Quick ride to Edgartown which was probably our favorite area to walk. The owner has a left a bunch of cooking utensils, pots and pans etc. in the kitchen; stove, fridge, microwave - that was handy when we had 3" of rain in one day and bought supplies from Tony's market and Stop & Shop to cook and relax. We were warned the shower was small - true but adequate (or use the large one outside) if you have ever stayed in Europe and survived you will understand small.

We loved it and would stay again without hesitation. The homeowner was super to deal with, got some good advice on places to visit.

Cute and Cozy

My 7-day stay at The Nest was fantastic! It is a guest house and while small, the owner made great use of the space. The house is conveniently located to shops, restaurants, church and the Gazebo - but most importantly it is just steps away from the Inkwell Beach -- which was the primary reason for my visit. There is an outdoor shower which is spacious and I used this shower more than the indoor shower. The bathroom is compact, to say the least, but you won't be spending much time there anyway.

There is also a balcony off the full-sized bedroom upstairs which is a great way to welcome the sunrise or enjoy a cocktail before bed.

We had great communications with the owner before and after our trip. I would definitely stay here again.

Oak Bluffs Treasure

I had a wonderful stay at "The Nest", the aptly named guest house right behind the main house. It is a small space but the attention to detail and spacing never made us feel crowded. There was a clear separation between the two houses and we all had our privacy. The bedroom upstairs housed the queen-sized bed, a flatscreen TV, a full open closet and drawers. The daybed was downstairs. The A/C units worked fabulously. The house is right across the street from Inkwell Beach and a short walk to Circuit Ave (not such a good thing when there are three ice cream shops within yards of each other).

The upstairs porch allowed a beautiful view of the sun rising each morning. There is a functional half bath with a shower but you haven't lived until you experience the large outdoor shower at the side of the house! There is a table and chairs out front along with two rocking chairs. There are beach chairs and towels for guests use as well.

The kitchen area has a table and chairs, ample counter space, stove with an oven, a large sized refrigerator/ freezer, microwave, coffee maker, dishware, glasses and utensils. The washer and dryer came in handy so we didn't have to go back home with dirty laundry. I would return in a heartbeat. Friends of ours came by to visit and were blown away at the use of the space and how appealing it was.

The owner was very accessible and provided detailed instructions for our arrival and departure. We are hoping to be guests on the property next year!

Annual MV Trip

My boyfriend and I stayed at "The Nest" for nights during July and had a wonderful time. Laurie was very accommodating, stocking all the essentials for us, and was very flexible with the days and times we checked in and out which allowed us to stay almost an entire extra 2 days. Downstairs was rustic but very clean, while the bedroom was more modern. Everything was very clean and comfortable. A/C upstairs and downstairs which was great since there was a heatwave going on the first couple days of our stay. Favorite feature was the outdoor shower. Would stay here again in the future for sure. Definitely beats a hotel! show more show less

Can't wait to come back!

Perfect location! Everything we needed and so close to the beach. Loved waking up, opening the door to the upstairs porch and seeing the ocean every morning! The house is compact but had everything we needed – TV, bureau, plenty of room for our things and a cute, full kitchen. There’s an indoor shower but the bathroom is small and we preferred the enclosed outdoor shower. It really feels separate from the main house, and the owner was very responsive and easy to deal with. Place is a steal and just great, especially for a couple -- my husband and I are already planning our next trip! show more show less

Fantastic getaway from NYC

Loved nesting in The Nest! We were there 5 days last summer, had great weather and loved how close the house was to everything. We liked being tucked away but steps from the beach. Owner was easy to get on the phone and helpful as we’d never been to the Vineyard before. Neighborhood is great – feels ‘in town’/Oak Bluffs and you can walk to everything but on a quieter street. Go left and you’re at Inkwell (a great swimming and socializing beach). Go right and you can bike up the path to State Beach (we got week-long bike rentals in town).

The kitchen is rustic, but had a good-sized fridge, full-sized stove – I thought we’d miss having a dishwasher but it was no big deal. Truthfully it’s so close to so many good restaurants and it was such a joy to walk everywhere (great casual dining along the harbor and Circuit Avenue). We hope to come again with more of our family and book the main house as well.

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.
