Description

Description

Martha’s Vineyard is a great place to spend your vacation whether it be spring, summer, or fall. It has earned a reputation as the place where presidents come to vacation! We have great sandy beaches with clear, pristine water as well as miles of hiking and biking trails! Martha’s Vineyard, the third largest island on the East Coast, is a 100 square mile offshore island steeped in history and unusual in diversity as illustrated by its six towns, terrain, lifestyle, and people. Martha’s Vineyard has also earned a reputation as an unforgettable wedding destination and a place where celebrity sightings are not uncommon. Yet, Martha’s Vineyard can be private and perfect vacations can still be enjoyed by those of us who are neither Presidents nor celebrities! This picturesque island off Cape Cod remains one of the most popular destinations in New England.

In addition to the summer, May and June, as well as September and October, are also great times to visit the Vineyard! Walking along the seashore is very relaxing and you feel that the views are just for you! Ample parking and warm days and cool nights make spring and fall a perfect time to be on the Vineyard. The restaurants do not have long lines, the summer crowds are either not here yet or gone. As an added bonus, spring and fall rental rates are less than the summer rental rate!

Vineyard Retreat is a unique, custom-built, well-maintained 1800 sq. ft. 3-bedroom 2 1/2-bathroom A-frame style house decorated in the mid-century modern style. It is nestled in a wooded setting located on a quiet country road. It is in a neighborhood that is perfectly suited for families, active couples as well as retired couples. It is only a short 3-minute walk to Sailing Camp Park where you can enjoy a swim at the beach and view stunning picture-perfect sunsets. It is only a quick drive (less than 2 miles) or a leisurely walk to enjoy all of the activities in the center of Oak Bluffs. Edgartown and Vineyard Haven, with their many shops, restaurants, and attractions, are also very easily accessible. For those not bringing a vehicle to the island, it is helpful to know that there is a Vineyard Transit Authority bus stop at the end of our road.

Our three bedrooms comfortably accommodate a maximum of 6 people. The master bedroom, with a queen-size bed and an adjoining full master bath with a large private shower, is located on the first floor. Two additional bedrooms are located on the second floor. One upstairs bedroom has two twin beds and the other has a queen-size bed. A full bath on the second floor serves the two upstairs bedrooms. One of these bedrooms, the West bedroom, has a private outside balcony. The fully equipped kitchen opens to a cozy dining area and a living room with a smart TV and direct access to a spacious deck. A fully enclosed outdoor shower, with hot and cold water, is at hand to rinse off after returning from an enjoyable day at the beach.

Our location provides easy access to the State Forest bicycle path as well as bicycle paths leading to Vineyard Haven and Edgartown and easy access to golfing at Farm Neck, swimming at State Beach, and other down-island saltwater beaches as well as to all other island towns and attractions.

We supply all bed linens and in-house towels. The house is well equipped with items such as silverware, pots & pans, toaster, blender, coffee maker, a hot pot, a dishwasher, a washing machine, dryer, refrigerator, a smart TV and Internet. We still have great weeks available; so, what are you waiting for? Call (508) 693-9863 to reserve your week today!

Please Note:
Our rental week runs from 2 pm Saturday to 10 am the following Saturday! A REFUNDABLE $500.00 Reservation/cleaning/Security DEPOSIT is required for all rentals. This deposit is refundable after inspection of the property and within 5 weeks after the rental period.

Due to the allergies of some renters, no pets of any size or kind are allowed. This is also a non-smoking house.

For the house, you should bring food, at least for your first day, and perhaps for the next morning. You may also want to consider bringing Kleenex, paper towels, your preferred toilet tissue (it MUST be SEPTIC SAFE! - we use Scotts), a hairdryer, your preferred hand soap, shampoo, your preferred laundry detergent, and something to bring back home any soiled clothing and/or wet bathing suits, etc. Also, consider bringing an umbrella and/or rain gear for that unexpected rainy day.

For the beach, you should bring plenty of your beach towels, beach chairs and/or beach blankets, a cooler, and, perhaps a beach umbrella and picnic supplies.

There is a food market in Oak Bluffs open from 8 AM until 1 PM on Sunday and until 6 PM weekdays, while the Stop and Shop in Vineyard Haven is open 6 AM to 11 PM - 7 days a week, and the Stop and Shop in Edgartown is open 6 AM to midnight - 7 days a week to purchase food and other necessities.

    Our Martha's Vineyard home away from home.

    My wife and I have been vacationing every June on Martha's Vineyard for approximately ten years and have been renting at this same location every year….It's our home away from home and the owners who reside next door are not just the neighbors but have become friends.

    The A-frame, 3-bedroom house just outside of Oak Bluffs is conveniently located for visits to shops, restaurants, and points-of-interest. We have always walked into a well-maintained and clean facility. The house has always been fully accommodating with kitchen appliances, dinnerware, cooking and eating utensils, laundry facilities, and patio deck furniture and barbeque. A hospitality notebook explaining where, what, when, and how about the Vineyard is kept updated and, despite the number of years we've spent going to the Vineyard, is frequently consulted.

    All in all, our stay has always been comforting and welcoming.

    Wonderful!

    Excellent stay with Mike and Mary Jane - this is our second year booking their beautiful home and we hope to be back again! The location was perfect for our family of four, close to town and beaches but centrally located to other parts of the island. The communication was excellent and the home itself was perfect. We loved our stay on the island!

    A-Plus stay in the A-Frame House!

    My family and I LOVE staying in Mike and MJ’s rental property in Oak Bluffs. The layout of the house is perfect for our family as well as when we have guests visiting. Kitchen comes equipped with EVERY pot, pan, dish, glass/mug and utensil you’d ever need. All the appliances and furniture throughout the house are new and/or very well maintained. The 3 bedrooms have plenty of room, and the 2 1/2 bathrooms as well as spacious outdoor shower are very accommodating. It’s a nice walk or short drive to all the shops and restaurants around Circuit Ave. and beaches, but also far enough away for a quiet evening spent in the house or outside on the deck or in the yard. The property is very close to the center of 3 different towns via Barnes Rd. show more show less

    Home away from home

    If one floor living is important to you—the A-frame is perfect. If room for the family is important to you—the A-frame is perfect. If an extremely well equipped kitchen, plenty of towels and linens and a spotlessly clean house are important to you—the A-frame is perfect. If grilling and enjoying a deck are important to you—the A-frame is perfect. If a peaceful getaway that is only a few minutes drive from beaches, restaurants, and the harbor is important to you—the A-frame is perfect. />
    We found the owners to be welcoming, and the A-frame to be the perfect “home away from home “! show more show less

    Great place for a relaxing vacation

    This well appointed immaculate A frame is our favorite place for a Martha's Vineyard vacation. The large deck is wonderful for relaxing, reading, and lazing away the cares of the working world. The location is close to everything and far enough away so you are removed from tourista maxima annoyance. We have spent 10 of our last 12 Vineyard vacations at this house and have been greatly disappointed by our choices for the years we couldn't make the dates work. Mike and Mary Jane are helpful, responsive hosts and are always attentive to our needs and make our vacations a pleasure, even on the years we experienced rain (only 2 of 12). We are already anticipating our next stay. show more show less

    We would love to have you return to our home in the future but fully understand that you usually rent a larger home that will accommodate your family as well as your friend’s family.

    Roomy A-Frame

    On our recent trip to Martha's Vineyard we rented an A-Frame home from Mike and Mary Jane that was clean and roomy with easy access to Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown. The owners left a list of things to do that proved very helpful in making the most out of our time on Martha's Vineyard. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to other families.

    Great vacation home for the family

    Property was very clean and well maintained. Property owner is available if there are any questions or issues that arise. Location is very convenient to both Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. Bedrooms are good sized and the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. Outside shower was handy. Quiet neighborhood and nice yard. We will definitely be returning to this property in the future.

    Just relax

    When you walk into this extremely well equipped and appointed A-frame, your mind and body relax, and you know you are on vacation! You can enjoy breakfast on the deck surrounded by the music of the birds or, in just a few minutes, drive to Circuit Ave in Oak Bluffs, or Vineyard Haven where you can have breakfast at one of many different restaurants. This property is exactly as it is represented on the site. It is spotlessly clean, and there are ample supplies of linens and kitchen/dining utensils. The owners, Mike and Mary Jane, are easily accessible and happy to answer any questions about the house or the Island. All you need to take are your personal needs and a vacation state of mind. show more show less

    Great location and great owners

    This home is located about a mile outside of the main attractions of Oak Bluffs. You get to enjoy the quiet feel of being outside of town, but have the ability to get to the attractions in no time. After our second year at this home, we really have fell in love with the Vineyard. The owners know all the ins and outs of the island and are the best tour guides you can find. Mike and Mary are great people that love welcoming others into their home. We can't wait to go back next summer.
