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 are the Ocean View Restaurant, a favorite of islanders for lunch and dinner and Our Market, where you can pick up liquor and groceries.

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.

Although we've always prided ourselves on the cleanliness of the cottage, we are taking special measures this year to enhance cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting. We've worked with the same cleaning service for over 20 years and have confidence in the measures they are taking to up their game. Please contact us for details if you have any questions.

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.

    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.

    A great vacation!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home! The house has so much character, wonderful porch overlooking Oak Bluffs Harbor, perfect walking distance to the beaches and town. Wish we could stay there 52 weeks of the year!

    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!

    Always a pleasure....12th year running!

    We have been staying at the Sea Saw with family for 12 years but this is the first year we rented our own week,. With the help of the owners, were able to piggy back our week with our family's meaning we got to spend two straight weeks in the house! The house has a great layout allowing all guests to have their own space. The owners are always updating something on the house every year showing they take great pride in their property. It is well stocked with all the kitchen items that you will ever need so you don't have to bring much. During our week, we stayed there with our two young daughters, and the location couldn't be more perfect....right across from a grassy park, right down the road from Jetty Beach, and a quick walk to the harbor and downtown. But some of our best memories are spent rocking or playing cards on the huge porch! We plan to come back every year we can! show more show less

    Amazing family week on the Island!

    This home was exactly what we needed for our annual trip to the Island. It was within a stone's throw to the Harbor and all of the restaurants (our fave is Nancy's). It was great after all of our day trips all over the Island to be able to come back and relax on one of the many rocking chairs on the front porch overlooking the Harbor and not have to get back in a car. The 6 bedrooms allowed for each of my three children to have a friend and for us to extend a one or two night invitation to different friends throughout the week. All of the kids loved their nightly treks into town, especially to Back Door Donuts. The house was clean and fully equipped. ***Do not forget to bring sheets! show more show less

    Beautiful place, excellent location

    This is the third year that we had the privilege to stay at Seasaw in Oak Bluffs. To say that the house is well maintained and lovingly cared for by the owners, Jim and Deb, is an understatement. The house is spacious, clean and decorated to give the visitor a sense of home. Fully equipped kitchen, large living spaces and an outside shower that my family loved...they stood in line just to use it. Walking distance to town, the harbor, and the beach...you can't get a better location or house to stay in while visiting Martha's Vineyard. Thanks, Jim and Deb, for sharing your home with my family. show more show less

    Excellent Oak Bluffs Vacation Home

    I recently rented this wonderful home. The layout of the house easily accommodates a large group. I had 3 teenage boys with me and we never tripped on anyone's toes. It's ideally located, a very short walk to the bay and the main strip on Circuit Avenue. I have rented many vacation homes on the Vineyard, and this property certainly lives up to the many reviews, has a well equipped kitchen and large dining room. The location is ideal, close enough to the action and yet far enough for quiet time on the great porch. I hope to return next year. show more show less

    Favorite Family Retreat Spot.

    Our family has been coming to this very special cottage for many years for our annual family gathering. It has been perfect for us in so many ways. The house is always clean, well equipped & uncluttered. It has 6 bedrooms, the location is within walking distance to the beach, shops & restaurants. The porch provides a view of the harbor and is steps away from a large park. It is loved by all ages. The owners are readily available and responsible. And we plan to return for many years to come!
