Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely perfect for a vacation. The space is ample and the surrouding peaceful and serene. It is close in proximity to shopping and the beaches. The bedrooms are all good size and comfortable. The kitchen is adquately supplied with all the items you may need. We all love the outdoor shower when we return from the beach. The outside deck is roomy and the landscaping is done welll. I can't wait to return again.

Great Experience - All Around

  • 5 of 5

A group of 6 of us stayed here for a Labor Day weekend wedding and it was perfect. The house itself was very welcoming and comfortable - it served us well. The house was stocked with everything you would need - anything from pots/pans and a coffee maker to beach towels and a closet full of board games. The outside deck was a plus; since we had gorgeous weather for our stay, we utilized this quite often. The location of the home is close enough to downtown Oak Bluffs and the main road to take you pretty much anywhere on the island, but also secluded enough that you can "get away." We brought a vehicle, so I cannot comment on the proximity to public transit, but I would venture to guess that it is within walking distance.

Cynthia was tremendous at communicating and answering any questions immediately and she was kind enough to leave welcome information on the table for our arrival which included quite a bit about the area, certain suggestions and house instructions. She was also very clear and concise in her instructions regarding the house and who to contact in case of emergency, etc. We hope to make it back to the island in the future and will certainly contact Cynthia should we return.

Enjoyable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this property. It is centrally located in Oak Bluffs which makes it easy to get around the island. The house was clean and stocked with all needed items - beach cart, chairs, towels etc. The deck is heavenly and relatively secluded. The interior of the house is roomy and can easily accommodate six people. Our group is looking forward to returning again!

The Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

Since I was born and grew up on the Island, I return often to visit with family. When it is just my husband, Bruce, and I my sister has the extra room for us. This year my son and family came too which added 4 more bodies! Cynthia's home was ideal with it's 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The 2 boys shared the room with twin beds which made bedtime much easier than a shared double to say the least! This home is right next door to my sister's house plus conveniently located to the preserve, downtown Oak Bluffs, many bike trails (3 bikes were available for our use)and beaches. We had the family over for dinner one night and the deck easily accommodated the extra people. It was perfect for us in every respect!

Comfortable and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This home actually exceeded our expectations. It was lovely, completely comfortable, and well equipped. We came to Martha's Vineyard after a hectic trip to NYC, with many commitments and responsibilities. This house provided the serene surroundings and creature comforts for us to recharge, yet still afforded easy access to Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven.

In fact, there was an excellent balance between privacy and quiet in the property itself and easy access to the restaurants, beaches, and shops of the two neighboring towns. The owner made it clear that she was available for questions or help, though she had anticipated and provided for all of our needs handily.

We would definitely recommend the property highly.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Island Serenity. The house was large and airy and fit our party of six plus perfectly. The owners called us to make sure we had settled in and had everything we needed. They also left information forus which was extremely helpful. We are outdoor people, so we especially enjoyed the spacious deck as well as the quiet surrounding of the property. The bedrooms were good sized and each had air conditioning which allowed for a great nights sleep. I would definitely return to this home and would recommend it to others.
