Home away from home in excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house during the fourth week of August. This house is in an excellent location, a short walk to the Inkwell beach and a 10-15 minute walk to Circuit Ave and all of the restaurants and entertainment in Oak Bluffs. The house is updated, clean, comfortable and spacious. We ended up having 8 in our party. It can sleep 13 if every room and bed are filled, and if there are two in every double bed. I anticipate that might feel a bit crowded with 2 bathrooms.

The wrap around porch is the perfect place to relax, chat with family and friends and wave to the neighbors. It is quite spacious and we spent a lot of time there. Although the house is very convenient to town, it is on a quiet block with a very friendly neighborhood feel. You can choose to never use your car, or hop in the car to head to Edgartown, South Beach, State beach or any number of places. We really enjoyed our stay here!

Our family had an excellent stay. The outdoor shower was a definite favorite. And the front porch. I love being 2 blocks from the beach and a couple more to town. We visited all our favorite places -- Aquinnah beach, Illumination Night and the Ag Fair.

Wonderful girls weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a dream for a girls weekend away! The house itself was beautiful with its large wrap around porch that we enjoyed all weekend. The bedrooms were sunny and large and the communal area was great for hanging out and relaxing. The best part of this house is that it is a 2 minute walk from the beach and a 5 minute walk to town. You can actually see the ocean from the porch and it is the perfect place to have morning coffee. We can't wait to come back again soon!
