House, 4 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
I had been renting out my Edgartown house since 1998 (VRBO 43322) and found that I really enjoyed the whole process -- the summer rentals, the renovations, spending time on MV, and so on, which motivated me to purchase this home that Circuit Ave. I eventually purchased one more home on MV around 2006 (vrbo 43151) and then a vacation condo in San Diego. Owning these homes is a pleasure for me (most of the time!) and I think that may be the most important element in the whole process. I can't imagine doing this kind of work if you did not enjoy it. I really appreciate the fact that guests come to my homes for what may be their one true vacation of the year, and this time is very important to each guest. I keep that in mind as I constantly update and maintain my homes to what I hope you find to be a high level of quality.
Owner purchased this House in 2003
Why Owner chose Oak Bluffs
While we put an equal amount of effort and care into all three MV homes, and while I can't say that I value any one property over another, if we were to move to the Vineyard this is the home we would choose to live in. It's difficult to pinpoint what makes a property 'special,' but I think the fact that we often consider living in this home ourselves is the strongest statement we could make about our thoughts on this property.
What makes this House unique
The combination of the old and the new makes this home stand out. While it has the look and feel of a cottage, it also has great modern amenities like two good-sized modern bathrooms, central AC, brand new solid wood kitchen cabinets, and newer dishwasher and washer/dryer.

Clean and comfortable
House is clean, comfortable, and very convenient location. Nice porch, too.
Loved being so close to the beach and to the campgrounds, the AC was perfect, loved the spacious and clean kitchen and master bathroom. Quiet, comfortable, just what we were looking for!
I rented this home for my guys for work for the week and they loved it. The owner was such a pleasure to deal with which the experience that much better! I hope to be able to return with my family and friends soon!
Convenient and comfortable
Great location, straight walk right into Oak Bluffs, clean and comfortable home. There is a market & deli right around the corner to pick up any last minute items or grab sandwiches for the beach.
Thanks for writing a review. Glad you enjoyed the home and the island. Hope to see you again. Joe
LOVED THIS HOUSE!
I just returned from my annual Girl Getaway on Martha's Vineyard and THIS house helped make it one of my best trips yet. The location is PERFECT! Short walks to stores, restaurants, activities, beaches! Although we had one, You do not need a car. The owner was incredibly accommodating from my initial contact throughout and was very responsive. I actually did not even need to reach out to him during our stay because everything we needed was right there for us. From the modern appliances to decor to the updated rooms. We lounged around the house during the hot days perfectly comfortable b/c of the central a/c. It was all perfect. We were a group of 6 woman and one 17 year old and we fit very comfortably....side note 2 women shared the lower floor bedroom with the trundle bed and mentioned it was bit tight according to them. We had a wonderful breakfast out on the patio and discussed our day on the porch at night. We are EXTREMELY disappointed to find out the house was already booked for the week in 2017 :( but know whoever is renting will enjoy the memories they create. We definitely look forward to renting THIS house again in the future.
Thank you for taking time to write a thoughtful review. Hope to see your entire group at the house again. I am always happy to hear that the home worked out and that you had a great trip to the island.
Love this house
I just returned from my third annual stay at this MV house. I love it so much I just committed to a fourth year!
The location is perfect - a short walk to the shops and restaurants in town and a short walk to Ocean Park and the beach. There is a market about a block away too. The owner definitely takes great care of this house and each year we are surprised with awesome, modern updates. It's rare to find an MV house with so many modern conveniences - central air, washer/dryer, dishwasher. The bathrooms are updated and there is a grill and a huge porch. Part of the porch is covered and it's great on days when it's raining at bit and you can't get to the beach. The house is always very clean and the owner is great and very responsive.
I can't say enough great things about this house. It has become my summer home away from home!
Thank you again for the review and I am very happy that you have already made plans to return next year.
Since the house is just steps to Downtown OB, you will have easy access to summer fairs, road races, bike trips, boating excursions and so forth. Not to mention great restaurants, shopping, and night life. What you may find most appealing, though, is just walking through the park to and from the water.
