Why Larry- Customer of HomeAway.com since 2004 chose Oak Bluffs
This rental is a certified national historic property by the United States Department of Interior. It is the first commercial building built in the town. It looks virtually the same on the outside today as it did in 1862 when it was built. On the inside it has been modernized but remains faithful to its historic origins. The location is unsurpassed for guests looking to be centrally located in one of the most unique towns in the country.

Super easy access to property. Best location you could imagine. So much space which was clean and enjoyable. Can’t thank you enough and hope to be able to visit again!! We had everything we needed, even for a short stay!
Weather didn’t cooperate for enjoying the porch, but that didn’t matter!
This is a great property! Thanks for sharing it!!
Noisy and Dirty
The location for the property is excellent, but the noise is terrible. The property is just above Sharkey's Bar and Grill a local hangout that is very noisy. The floor in the unit was literally shaking at midnight from the noise. When we checked in at 4 pm the upstairs smaller unit had not been cleaned. The place was filthy particularly the bathroom where someone had been sick. We called Larry and he said the cleaning crew was probably running behind. We told him about the bathroom so he gave us access to the lower unit to use the bathroom. I suggested we just stay in the lower unit so we moved our bags back down two flights of stairs. The first place was not cleaned until 6:30 pm. Larry told us the downstairs unit was a little noisy. It was much more than a little. It sounded look me a heavy metal band was in Sharkey's. Other than location these units have nothing going for them. When check-in is at 4 and you are paying a hefty cleaning fee, the owner and manager should make sure the unit is ready. Both units are old and smelly. Some air freshener would do wonders.
Lovely and convenient!
This place was a great option for our first time in Martha's Vineyard. Definitely recommend!
Oak Bluffs is where the action is at !
This space was great to stay at in MV, it’s 3 min walk to downtown Oak Bluffs . There are many shops and restaurants a few mins walk. The beach is about 10 mins away across the park. Overnight Parking is along the waterfront. It can be noisy in the morning with commercial vehicles during the early morning hours.
Great location and front porch
My girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is beautiful & right in the heart of bustling Oak Bluffs. The host is super responsive and we will def be back. We did use ear plugs for sleep although there were noise machines supplied too. The nightlife is a bit loud at times but is exactly why we chose this spot. Can walk everywhere & 5 minutes to beautiful Inkwell Beach.
This was a great apartment, just as listed. Very clean, easy access with clear instructions, in a great part of town. would certainly recommend to a friend
