About the Owner

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.

Love this house

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful and most comfortable home for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I love this house! Three girlfriends and I stayed here for a week in September and had a ball! One of the girls who could not go up and down stairs had the room on first floor with day bed and it was perfect for her. We loved the front porch! Enjoyed our coffee in the mornings out there and cocktails in the evenings. Several mornings one friend and I walked to Tony's Grocery Store for great coffee and fresh pastries while others slept. The location was so convenient to restaurants, shopping, water, and park. The house had a washer and dryer which helped us be able to pack lighter. Bathrooms were great and had wonderful outdoor shower as well. I would highly recommend the house to anyone who visits Martha's Vineyard and we loved the area of Oak Bluffs which is where the house is. People there could not have been friendlier or more pleasant!

Owner's Response: Thank you. I say this with every review, but I am always really happy to hear that guests had a great time at the home and on the island. We made a lot of improvements in 2015, but we are not done yet and are already working towards 2016. Hope to see you again at the house. Thank you.

Epic/awesome

  • 5 of 5

Perfect is the only way to describe this property. Photos are spot on and shot w no wide angle lens. Beautiful hardwood floors. Great kitchen w everything you could think of but there were far too many restaurants to try and not enough days. Grilling would have been nice if time had allowed. One week goes fast. Bedrooms were so comfortable, love color and decor. Mattresses so comfortable. Heat and air worked as you expected, although we did not try heat and seldom used air. The most beautiful weather blessed us with not one cloud. Flowers were like a photo. So close to town of Oak Bluff you could walk if so inclined. Safe neighborhood. One night I did see a skunk, I have never seen one in the wild and was so excited. Spa bathroom upstairs. Everything spotless. Sat on deck w umbrella when we were at house day and night. Washer and dryer came in handy. Landlord was very responsive through out.

Needless to say I plan to return, can't wait. May even take my husband next time. Went w girlfriends from high school this time. To

Owner's Response: It's always great to hear that guests have had such a wonderful time at the house. Thank you for taking the time to post. Regarding photos, I intentionally do not use any "special" photography. Everything is done with the camera in my phone. Hope to see you again next year. Thanks again for your stay.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of renting this property for a second time this past June and from the moment we arrived and saw the brightly colored umbrella on the porch, we felt like we had come home. On our first trip to Martha’s Vineyard in June 2014, we rented this property and had such a great time, we returned again this year. On both occasions we had a fantastic stay and look forward to returning here in the near future.

From the onset, my communication with Joe was great. He was extremely helpful and very responsive to my many emails and requests. The house is beautifully maintained as Joe is continually working to improve and upgrade. As an example, when we stayed in 2014, the house had window ACs and this year he had installed central AC. It’s very clean, cozy and comfortable and is exactly as depicted in the online pictures. There were six adults in our party and we had more than enough space. The bedrooms were quite comfortable and the downstairs area provided many comfy sofas and chairs for relaxing, watching TV, playing games, etc. The HE washer and dryer was a huge plus for us and we loved the wrap around porch where we could hang out in the mornings and have our coffee and people-watch or enjoy a barbecue in the evenings.

The area is very quiet and peaceful, and the location is fantastic – within easy walking distance of downtown Oak Bluffs with its shops and restaurants, the waterfront, and the beach. Nashaweena Park is on one side of the property and is perfect for early morning strolls and late evening walks. Overall, my family and I have no complaints and we loved our vacation at this house; a great time was had by all.

Owner's Response: Audra: Thank you for taking the time to create such a detailed review. It's great to hear that your trip worked out for you and your family. Glad you enjoyed the central AC! Thanks again, and hope to see you on the island again soon. Joe

Wonderful Home In A Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I recently returned from a fantastic week in this wonderful home in Oak Bluffs. The property is exactly as advertised with modern touches, yet still manages to maintain its charm. It is obvious that the owner has taken good care of the property and the recent updates are evident, all resulting in a very comfortable stay. The upstairs shower is a little tight, but the tub is amazing; there's a full shower on the main floor; and I can't say enough about the outside shower. On top of all that, the property is really just a short walk to the heart of Circuit Avenue or the beach. The minute we walked in we knew we would be back for another stay at this property. We have already started discussing next year's trip to the Vineyard and I only hope this property is available.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I rented this property for the memorial day weekend and absolutely loved it ! It's within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants on Circuit Ave which was great for our morning strolls to get coffee. We had more than enough room and everything was super clean. Joseph was very accomodating and easy to work with. We didnt have any issues! We look forward to renting this property again.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : at 3 Miles Nearest Ferry : 0.5 at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : at 0.5 Miles

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.

Amenities

From the Owner

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.
