Description from owner

***Transferrable Round-trip Ferry Ticket for one car included with reservations for the week of June 25th! Dates are Sunday, June 25th to Sunday, July 2nd. ***

Linens and bath towels are always included!

Welcome to the Flying Seahorse, an updated, antique, beach cottage that is steps from Oak Bluffs Town Beach (aka The Inkwell), has AC (upstairs, downstairs bedroom and living room), beach views from its balcony, a modern kitchen and plenty of space for extended families. It is an easy walk to downtown (Circuit Ave) and ferries. Linens and bath towels included.

Located in the Copeland Historic District area, this classic circa 1870s beach cottage has 4 bedrooms (plus 1 boxcar room with bunk beds) and 2 full bathrooms (each with shower, one bath per floor). The cottage sleeps a party of 10.

The Oak Bluffs Town Beach (Inkwell) is both just a hop, skip and jump from the cottage. The cottage has ocean views and is across from Seaview Ave. You can sit out on 3-season porch or the private front, 2nd floor balcony and enjoy an ocean view with your morning coffee.

The cottage is wonderfully updated throughout, with a fantastic granite kitchen with dishwasher, disposal and every gadget needed to make a great meal. In the last year, we have replaced most furniture, bedding, kitchen utensils, gas grille and outdoor seating. We always include linens and bath towels. Bedrooms and living room are air-conditioned for your comfort, not very common in the beach cottages in the area. The 2nd floor boasts a relaxing balcony with ocean views.

Catch great bike routes from Sea View Ave. Downtown Oak Bluffs (Circuit Ave) is a short 5 minute walk where you can dine out or visit many retail stores. Don't miss the country's oldest carousel in downtown Oak Bluffs. No car needed, really!

Although it's nice to unplug, the cottage has free Wifi with a code for those who want to stay connected, as well as TVs with cable.

There is one, convenient downstairs bedroom that has 1 king-size bed, perfect for those who may have difficulty with the steep staircase to the 2nd floor.

Upstairs bedrooms include:

Green room: 1 queen size bed.

Purple Room: 1 Double bed, 1 twin bed

Loft Room/Boxcar: 1 full sized bed and 1 twin bed. Beds accessed by ship ladder, not suitable for young children (boxcar room with purple room)

Yellow Room: 1 Double bed, 1 twin bed

Comfy mattresses are on every bed with fully-encased, non-vinyl, waterproof allergy mattress covers and pillow covers. We provide linens (sheets, pillowcases, blankets) and bath towels. We also start you out with: coffee filters, garbage bags, liquid hand soap at every sink, a new and clean dish sponge at the kitchen sink, a bottle of Dawn liquid, Cascade dishwasher pods, laundry detergent, rolls of paper towels, and rolls of toilet paper.

Easy walk from Oak Bluffs Ferry, steps to Town Beach (aka Inkwell), 5 minute walk to downtown. We provide the bulky items so you don't need to haul them over from the mainland, such as: beach chairs, a cooler, linens, bath towels, (even beach towels just ask), beach toys for the kids, tennis rackets, basketballs (for local public courts).

We like to have contact with our guests to ensure that the cottage is the right fit for them. It is an antique cottage, not a party house, and located in a very quiet neighborhood. Since it is in-town, the cottages are very close together and people are respectful of noise levels. It's not that you can't have fun though. You can also email us through this site with your inquiry. Please tell us about yourself and your party.

During High season (last week in June through August), this is a Sunday to Sunday 7 or 14 night rental.

We are not booking for 2018 yet. We will start to take reservations for 2018 in summer 2017.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 2 Double Beds, 4 Twin Beds
