Beautiful, great location, cozy

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house with lots of space and bedrooms. Only a block from the ocean and two blocks from restaurants and anything else you'd need in town. The owner was so helpful and accommodating during our stay. Couldn't recommend it more! We loved Martha's Vineyard and Oak Bluffs.

Such a great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved that our family could stay together at this beautiful house as we gathered to celebrate a family wedding!

The location was perfect...easy walk to the ocean or into town! We had a wonderful weekend!

Perfect House for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This house works: togetherness comes naturally with the big dining table and spacious porch, yet no one felt on top of each other. We had a mixture of family ( some had not seen each other for years) and friends. When things got boisterous at the table, one friend was able to go upstairs and read quietly. Owner was available and helpful with issue re linens.

A couple things about the house--not to complain but to answer your request for things that could improve the experience: TV in upstairs balcony room was not working, perhaps loose wiring;

Hot water temperature is set too high (we think could be dangerous);

Also somewhat dangerous: handling hot liquids from microwave on top of fridge (we moved it down to countertop.

Some people didn't notice the stop down into the pantry, at first;

The wind really blew into the upstairs front balcony room, making it very cold for sleeping, even with the heat on.

Maybe mention ahead of time that there are very helpful instructions posted in the laundry room that we didn't notice right away...but I guess we were 8 somewhat distracted and ditsy people.

But really the house is wonderful and we want to come back!

Narragansett Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Narragansett Cottage is a very comfortable space, big wide front porch with rocking chairs, new washer dryer and wonderful outside shower. It's 2 blocks to the beach and a few blocks to downtown Oak Bluffs' many stores and restaurants. Great for a family reunion. We had a prime week with Illumination Night, Fair and Fireworks and hopefully we will return for many years.

Better than we hoped for...

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 arrived late - about 9 p.m. and we were tired from traveling for 2 days from Ohio.

As soon as we unlocked the door and turned on the lights, we were thrilled by what we saw. Clean rooms that were different and inviting. It was almost like Christmas while opening gifts. Each of us picked a room that was perfect for us.

While were picking our rooms and making our beds with the clean linens waiting for us, Julie, our birthday girl, was making pasta in your cute kitchen that had everything we could possibly need. It has more than even our own kitchen. Nina and Peter thought of everything.

It was so nice to be able to open up a bottle of wine and have clean wine glasses in the cabinet. Two refrigerators was a treat and having a washer and dryer was a dream.

Other than our first night, we spent all our time dining outside on the porch which was huge. The adults were able to sit at the table while the children had plenty of room on the benches.

Walking 2 blocks to the beach was ideal. We loved that the beach was calm - which was perfect for our children, ages 4, 5 and 6.

Having an outdoor shower was great for the children who were caked with sand each day.

To be able to walk to town and everything we needed made life so much easier for us.

Nina and Peter were very responsive when the toilet handle broke and we appreciated it.

So our vacation at Narragansett Cottage was better than we had hoped for and we will definitely be back.
