The Sea Star is a sunlit adorable Cape within a 3-minute walk to the small beach at the saltwater Lagoon and 1 mile by road to Eastville Beach. A wonderful family vacation house on a quiet street in an ideal location to explore all the island has to offer. Minutes to downtown Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven amenities, the Boat, lifeguarded beaches, golf, and conservation trails. The bike path and bus stop to town are just around the corner. Fully equipped kitchen and new appliances, sky-lit loft bedroom, WiFi, and many new furnishings. The private fenced yard has an enclosed hot/cold shower and large inviting deck.

The Lagoon offers great fun in a lovely island setting: swim, beachcomb, fish, dig for clams, and sail or kayak out to Vineyard Harbor and Sound. Bring your boat into the Lagoon and walk 3 minutes to The Sea Star; relax in the outdoor shower; and enjoy an island meal on the deck. Top it off with a Lagoon sunset.
