The stunning waterways and marshlands of Martha's Vineyard are just outside your door at this two-bedroom Oak Bluffs home, a charming island cottage that offers a lovely back deck, an ideal location close to the ferries, and views of Brush Pond, Lagoon Pond, and Vineyard Sound.
Beautifully situated on the eastern edge of Brush Pond, this single-level home enjoys waterfront views that reach all the way to downtown Vineyard Haven. It's also just over one mile from the Oak Bluffs Steamship Authority and Oak Bluffs Town Beach, two miles from the Vineyard Haven Steamship Authority, and only four miles from the gorgeous expanse of Joseph Sylvia State Beach.
Whether you're planning a family vacation or a summer getaway with friends, this quaint cottage puts you within walking distance of the ferries, ocean beaches, restaurants, and shops that make Martha's Vineyard so special.
You'll find hardwood floors, large windows, and vibrant hues of blue and green in the sunny and cheerful living space. Return home from a day on the beach (sand-free, thanks to the outdoor shower) to read a novel in the rocking chair, challenge your friends to a board game, or use the WiFi to make dinner reservations in downtown Oak Bluffs.
The blue-and-green motif continues in the full kitchen, which features butcher block countertops, full-size appliances, and even a dishwasher to handle the clean-up. Use the lobster pot to boil freshly caught seafood, and sit down for dinner at the spacious indoor dining table.
But there are few reasons to stay inside when such beautiful views await on the back deck. Spend your days sunbathing on an Adirondack chair or simply admiring the stunning view of Brush Pond, Lagoon Pond, and Vineyard Haven; each evening, fire up the gas grill for a sunset meal at the patio table.
Grab a boogie board from the shed before heading down to one of the nearby beaches each morning. You'll come home to a TV with basic cable, a VCR, a DVD player, and a collection of VHS favorites to help you unwind.
With two bedrooms and one full bathroom, this home will comfortably sleep as many as four guests. The master bedroom offers a queen-size bed, while the guest room features a twin-size futon. There is also a second futon in the living room that provides additional sleeping space.
And you need not worry about keeping your beach clothes salt- and sand-free. This home is equipped with a private washer and dryer, as well as baseboard heat for chilly island evenings.
As one of New England's most beloved beach destinations since the 19th century, Oak Bluffs is a place for leisurely bike rides and afternoon swims in the warm waters of Nantucket Sound. The calm waves of Oak Bluffs Town Beach are perfect for families, and you'll be just a few blocks from the Flying Horses Carousel, the oldest platform carousel in the country and a national historic landmark.
Just a few miles south of Oak Bluffs, the two-mile expanse of Joseph Sylvia State Beach is ideal for windsurfing, beachcombing, and fishing for striped bass.
