Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: Private in Oak Bluffs

If there’s one question that I hear from every potential vacation house renter, it’s, “How far is it to the beach?” This Oak Bluffs, restored Victorian cottage makes my part in this conversation easy! The beach is 30 feet from the house, literally at the bottom of the stairs. And the beach is private!

This house is called ‘The Main Deck’ as it is one of three houses in a family compound that includes 150 feet of this coveted private beach. The other two houses can be rented as well – perfect for a big family gathering, a friend celebration or a wedding. Or you can just rent The Main Deck on its own. With five bedrooms and two and half baths, the cottage sleeps eleven.

Of course, if you tire of the beach or just need a little more action, you’re close to town and Oak Bluff’s main drag, Circuit Ave. There you’ll find great shopping, arcades, the flying horses, movies and tons of food. It’s a bit of an international mecca with Thai, Mexican, French and Caribbean food. And you can easily grab pizza for the crew or make it a special night out at island favorites, Deon’s (Caribbean) or The Sweet Life Cafe (French) – where the Obama’s dined this summer.

Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: Oak Bluffs Oasis!


Does it seem to you like I’m always saying, this is my favorite house? Well, I have only one excuse: we have so many gorgeous properties in our rental inventory! This amazing home in the Oak Bluffs neighborhood, Sengekontacket, is no exception. Sengekontacket is a quiet community with water access to Sengekontacket pond and the community tennis courts. The house itself is surrounded by the pond, offering gorgeous water views.



Inside, the house is nothing short of spectacular. It’s charming, spacious, very Vineyard all around. The main house features a screened-in porch with an adjoining deck. And just look at that kitchen! The main house has two bedrooms and a loft and the guest quarters has one bedroom with living room and a loft area with a view. So, it’s great if you’re multi-generational or even two families getting together.



This area of the island is centrally located down-island so you have easy access to downtown Oak Bluffs, Edgartown and Vineyard Haven. The closest ocean beach is State Beach which is a great kid beach because it’s on the sound side which means not a ton of surf, but plenty of crab, shells and sunshine!
