Beach - Bathe - Bike - Golf - Shop & Dine (oak Bluffs 1.5 Acre Private Retreat)


Property Details

Updated: May 18, 2015
5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 in real beds

LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION - Your private vacation retreat is less than 5 minutes from everything Vineyard

Looking to be close to everything, yet value privacy? Want to park your car at your house rather than several blocks away after spending 20 minutes hunting for a space? Looking to be close to everything, minutes to Oak Bluffs Center (Back Door Donuts), Ink- Well Beach, the Ocean, and Countless Nature Trails?

Welcome To MV . . .You found your vacation home

Enjoy a great night sleep nestled in a top quality bed with fresh professionally cleaned linens. Wake up with a warm shower attached to your room in one of the 3 master suites or better yet enjoy the trees and the rising sun in your private cedar enclosed outdoor shower.

After sipping some hot coffee with the paper on the deck head across the street for a round of golf or tennis at President Obama's favorite, Farm Neck Golf and Country Club - (let us know now and we will get you a tee time or a lesson from one of our pro's.)

If golf is not on your list - you may want to walk over to Ocean View pond just down the hill (dig some clams for later), explore one of the many nature trails, or slip out your private entrance, from the property, on to the paved bike path that extends through out the Island.

Mid morning it time to hit the beach. You are less than 5 minutes from your choice of ocean beaches. We suggest you pack a lunch or pick one up on your way and head over to the 'Jumping Bridge' an Island tradition you will remember for years to come.

Take a little shopping in Oak Bluffs or

Edgartown before settling back in at the house for a early evening BBQ with friends and family on the private stone patio (2 commercial quality MPH BBQ's provided)

Head to town for a movie, stroll the cottages, enjoy a free concert on the green, or enjoy the night life at one of the many clubs OB has to offer.

Tonight, sleep under the stars outside in the yard or on the deck.

Tomorrow head up Island for the Artisan Festival and the West Tisbury Farmer's Market.

Next up . . .some private treasures you can only find out about from the locals, and yes we would be happy to share some with you when you arrive.

Oak Bluffs Martha's Vineyard

Perfect house for a family with children and grandchildren. Plenty of space to be together or find find your own space for quiet times. Great kitchen,and the rooms quite comfortable for everyone. We were glad to be close enough to the town of Oak Bluffs and able to bicycle and even walk there. And the golf courses are close enough for the golfers in the family. Great house,going back again, July 25, 2015

Martha's Vineyard has been or is home to a number of artists and musicians, including Albert Alcalay, Evan Dando, Tim 'Johnny Vegas' Burton of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, James Taylor, Carly Simon, Livingston Taylor, Kate Taylor, Alex Taylor, Tom Rush, Geoff Muldaur, Maria Muldaur, Willy Mason, Unbusted and Mike Nichols. Historian and author David McCullough is also an island resident, as are the young-adult books authors: Judy Blume and Norman Bridwell, and crime/political intrigue novelist Richard North Patterson. Late authors Shel Silverstein and William Styron also lived on the Vineyard, as did writer, journalist and teacher John Hersey, poet and novelist Dorothy West and artist Thomas Hart Benton Various writers have been inspired by the island—including the mystery writer Philip R. Craig who set several novels on the island. On related note, Martha's Vineyard Poet Laureate, Lee H. McCormack, has written many poems about the island. The Academy Award winning Patricia Neal owned a home on South Water St in Edgartown, and James Cagney, Lillian Hellman (who is buried in Abel's Hill Cemetery near the site of Belushi's grave), and Katharine Cornell all found the Vineyard an exciting, rewarding place to live.

In addition the famous Life Magazine photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt was a fifty-year summer resident of the Vineyard until his death in 1995. Since 2006 the Australian born author Geraldine Brooks, writer of the Pulitzer Prize winning novel March, has lived there with her husband and two sons.

Other well-known celebrities who live on or have regularly visited the island: Famously renowned Harlem Renaissance artist Lois Mailou Jones, U.S. President Barack Obama, and former president Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; comedian and talk show host David Letterman; Bill Murray; Tony Shalhoub; Quincy Jones; Ted Danson and wife Mary Steenburgen; Larry David; the Farrelly brothers; Meg Ryan; Chelsea Handler. Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes was a summer resident of Martha's Vineyard. Late anchorman Walter Cronkite was a prominent summer resident as well. Other regularly appearing celebrities include film writer/director Spike Lee, attorney Alan Dershowitz, comedians Dan Aykroyd and James Belushi, politico Vernon Jordan, and television news reporters Diane Sawyer, former Ambassador and President of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, William H. Luers and Charlayne Hunter-Gault. Despite popular perceptions of the Vineyard as 'Hollywood East', the island is very low-key and quiet; celebrities go to the Vineyard to enjoy the atmosphere, and not to be seen. Locals tend to be protective of celebrity privacy, though recent coverage of celebrity sightings (most notably in the two local newspapers on the Island) has begun to erode that respect for privacy through more frequent reporting on celebrity sightings and famous visitors.

Vineyard social life often occurs in private, down country roads, and not in the small towns, only two of which even sell alcohol (Oak Bluffs and Edgartown).

Many of the country's most affluent black families have enjoyed a century-old tradition of summering on the island. Concentrated primarily in and around the town of Oak Bluffs, and the East Chop area, these families have historically represented the black elite from Boston; Washington, D.C.; and New York City.

Today, affluent black families from around the country have taken to the Vineyard, and the community is known as a popular summer destination for judges, physicians, business executives, surgeons, attorneys, writers, politicians, and professors.

The Run&Shoot Filmworks Martha's Vineyard African-American Film Festival ( held every second week in August, highlights the works of independent and established African-American filmmakers from across the globe. This annual event draws attendees from all across the world.

But the real treasures to be found from the hidden beaches to the best Lobster on the Island, you can only uncover from the locals - and we will be happy to share them with you before your stay
