“Location! Location! Location!”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2014

Great house and location! If you are looking for something with space, as well as the ability to walk to the bars and restaurants in Oak Bluffs, this is the house for you! Great location and great porch for those nights when you want to hang in. Slept 5 comfortably with everyone having their own rooms, but definitely can accommodate more!!!!!!!

“Family Haven”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2013

Okay, so full disclosure - I didn't stay the house...I and my sister conspired to create a great family vacation last summer that included a two week stay in this house. I fractured my back and couldn't attend, but everyone else in our family (including my husband and children) did. Since then, I have heard nothing but amazing things about the house. It slept 8 people comfortably, with room for more for socializing, was a great location with the park, town and beach nearby, and had a great view of the water from the wraparound porch. It was everything in the description and more. I am very sad that I wasn't able to enjoy the house myself, but am grateful for way it held my extended family. For those that are charmed by the cottages in the tabernacle area but find that they are too small for what you need, I understand that this house is a combination of two historic cottages and comfortable sleeps 8.
