Description

Description

Aren't you ready for some beaching, biking and walks through the woods? If so our welcoming cottage is the perfect spot for you. The house overlooks Oak Bluffs Harbor and Sunset Lake across Washington Park. It’s a short walk to Circuit Avenue, where you’ll find anything from arcades to artisan’s wares; the Tabernacle and Campgrounds, famous for gingerbread houses and tree-lined streets; world renowned Flying Horses Carousel, oldest Merry-Go-Round in the US.

If you’d rather stay closer to home this year, we have a large back yard, perfect for children. Washington Park is right in front of the house, and it’s a great place to fly kites, play ball, or people watch. Nearby is Our Market, where you can pick up liquor and groceries if you don’t feel like going to town.

Built by a ship builder, the house has warm bead board interiors and many interesting built-ins. One renter has described the house as ''magical.'' Others said, ''This is a brilliant house!'' and ''This sweet cottage feels like an old friend.''

There’s a bright and cheerful kitchen, with a vintage soapstone sink. The TV room has a spacious window seat, perfect for naps or reading. The porch overlooks Washington Park, Sunset Lake and Oak Bluffs harbor. It’s perfect for coffee, drinks, conversation and dining. Plenty of room to spread out throughout the house.

There are 6 bedrooms, 2 full baths, plus a large outdoor shower. Upstairs bedrooms have steeple ceilings. Two bedrooms have harbor views. The master bedroom has a queen bed, with sunrise view of the sun glinting off the ocean. Two bedrooms have double beds, two bedrooms have bunk beds. There is a “secret” bedroom over the kitchen with 2 twins, a favorite of young people.

Not only is it a short walk to town but within five minutes you can be at the beach or walking through the woods. Also convenient for guests sharing cars, or would rather the convenience of leaving the car at home. Mainland ferries are within walking distance and there is an easily accessible bus system that travels all over the island. If walking isn’t your thing, you can also bike or drive to 5 other towns and over 116 extraordinary preserved public beach, pond, wooded and wilderness areas open to the public.

For those of you who just can’t unplug, there is a TV and wireless internet access, newly upgraded. In addition to the kitchen table and a large dining room table, there’s also a table that seats 6 to 8 on the porch.

In 2022, we installed central air conditioning. One renter called it “a game changer.”

    Seasaw

    We had a great week staying at the Seasaw. The house is very cute and quaint. My big family fit perfectly into the six bedrooms. We enjoyed Jetty beach which is a short walk and the town is also a short walk away. The house was clean and had everything you needed to grill and to cook. The central air conditioning was a giant plus. We will definitely be back.

    Thank you! We were glad you decided to rent again this year and hope to host you in 2023! You're right about the A/C. I arrived on the Vineyard right after you when it was still very hot and humid. I appreciated the cool dry air. Enjoy the rest of the year.

    Oak Bluffs Rental

    Our second year at this home in Oak Bluffs was wonderful. It's a great house, short walk to town, and this year we had the enjoyment and comfort of a new Air Conditioning unit. The house is very well kept and a pleasure to enjoy.

    SeaSaw 2022

    We had a wonderful stay at SeaSaw in July. We loved everything about the house - it was comfortable and had everything one would need. The 2 bests things were the front porch and the location. We spent hours relaxing on the porch - it was peaceful but also allowed you to see activity in the harbor. Everyone loved it especially the grandparents that weren't able to venture out as much as the rest of us. Teenagers loved being able to go into town on their own or head to the beach. Having a beach right down the street was fantastic. Since we had cars and parking we were able to get to other beaches and Edgartown easily. We spent one day out at Menemsha enjoying the spectacular beach and fresh seafood. We love the Vineyard and this house was the perfect place for us to stay and enjoy all there is to do and see on the island. Homeowners were wonderful and very pleasant. We hope to return to SeaSaw! show more show less

    We loved our stay!

    My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. This was our second year renting, and it was everything we wanted and more. The location is ideal-- you can walk within minutes to all the bars, restaurants, beaches, etc. in Oak Bluffs. It was great that my kids didn't have to drive when they wanted to go into town. They invest in the property and had a new grill, gas stove, and central air conditioning system. The street is quiet with a nice park in the front, and we spent lots of time on the rocking chairs on the expansive front porch. The backyard is wonderful and we enjoyed the outdoor shower. The homeowners communicated very well. show more show less

    Annual Trip to the Island

    Yet again Seasaw did not disappoint. We were in heaven from the minute we walked up the steps to the minute we left. We began and ended every day on the expansive porch and many rocking chairs. True Bliss! The house is fully stocked with incidentals and bowls, plates etc. ( you need to bring towels and linens) The location can't be beat as it is a stones throw from all that downtown Oak Bluffs has to offer. Major upgrade this year with central AC, it was a game changer! The owners are amazing to work with. Can't wait for our next visit! show more show less

    Perfect spot

    This home was perfect for my family. It's a perfect location. You can walk to the beach, the shops and the carousel. The house was very well stocked with everything you need to cook with etc. I would definitely rent this home again.

    Charming Home in Wonderful Location!

    This vintage home in Oak Bluffs suited our needs perfectly! Our party of seven was very comfortable in the home. We especially enjoyed the front porch rockers with shade and a constant breeze in the afternoon and evenings. A delight after a hot day at the beach! The home is very easy walking distance to downtown Oak Bluffs (but far enough away to avoid the noise!), a nice 20 minute walk to the East Chop Lighthouse, and a quick 10 minute walk to Jetty Beach which we enjoyed on more than one occasion. The outdoor shower was also great! Please note that you do have to bring your own towels and linens—we opted to rent them. My teenage son also enjoyed the "secret" room above the kitchen. Perfect when he needed a break from us ;-) show more show less

    Seasaw was exactly what we had hoped!

    My 2 daughters (15 & 12) and 2 nephews (10 & 7) spent a glorious week at Seasaw. We had several different families stay a night or 2 over the course of the week. The layout was perfect for us! Enough bedrooms to have a little privacy, spacious gathering rooms to hang our and the kids LOVED the porch. We ate every meal outside upon the kids' request. The outdoor shower was also a huge hit as well.

    The location is what drew us to the house. The kids could walk to Circuit Ave, go fishing or to the 2 beaches close by. I highly recommend this house if you have a large group that is sharing a car that wants to do different things but yet be able to meet back at the house.

    The owners were a pleasure to work with. Deborah answered all my questions. Jim was available within 24 hours to fix a broken water heater (it happens). I would look forward to working with them again.

    Thank you for such a positive review, Lara. We appreciate your flexibility about the water heater. It's the first time anything like that has ever happened to us but we got things up and running as soon as possible. Plenty of hot water again!
