100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property that is caused by you or your party during your stay.
This was the perfect cottage for my husband and I and our dog Ally.
The house was just the right size for us, had everything you needed to be vacation comfortable. It was near a couple of parks and an easy walk to Circuit Ave.
It also had an amazing backyard where my husband and I enjoyed our morning coffee and where Ally could run around and explore .
Donna was was great host and available and easy to reach when we had any questions.
Thank you Sharon! It was a true pleasure to meet both of you. September is my favorite month on island. I’m glad you enjoyed your visit! Donna
All the reviews I had read about this cottage were true! Donna’s special cottage had charm, beauty, and privacy. All this within walking distance of the beach and downtown Oak Bluffs. Delightfully appointed with a gorgeous backyard set for entertaining or a nap on the shaded glider.
Hi and thank you!
It was my pleasure meeting both of you!
I have thought of our conversations many times! And I have planted the Dahlia!
It was a true pleasure on my part.
Thank you both! Donna
Enjoyed our stay very much
My wife, our dog and I arrived for our 2 week stay in July 2016. We enjoyed the home very much, it is quiet and private.
The home is very nice, it is comfortable and plenty of house for the 3 of us. We did bring our car over on the ferry (book it far ahead in the summer) and we liked having it on the island.
The house was stocked with everything you need to get started (spices, etc...) but of course you will want to pick up what you want for yourself and likely leave things for others.
I particularly enjoyed the panini maker and used it 4x in our 2 weeks.
The back yard is great, we spent a lot of time here in the evenings. Really, it is a place to relax. Our little guy loved it, he was maybe more happy here than at home which is really something.
You can walk to Oak Bluffs in 10-12 minutes. We rode our bikes several times to Edgartown (about a 15 mile round trip). We would definitely return to this home if we were planning on being back on the island which will depend on our dog's health.
So to answer the main questions:
Was the listing accurate: Absolutely
Was the property clean and maintained: Absolutely
Did the owner provide good customer service: Yes, we really like Donna, she is knowledgable about the island and just a great person overall. I can't say enough good things about her.
Would you recommend the property to a friend or relative: Absolutely
What activities/restaurants did we enjoy: L'Etoile - Edgartown, John's Fish Market - Vineyard Haven, Scottish Bakehouse - Vineyard Haven, Chilmark Chocolates - Chilmark, MV Wine & Spirits - Edgartown and Animal Health Care - Dr. Atwood - Edgartown...
The list goes on, there is a lot to do or you can do nothing... the choice is yours... but we love riding our bikes on the island.
Thanks again Donna!
Wow! Hi! thank you very much for taking the time to write a review! between the booking time and time we texted or talked on island i feel you both are my friends. i know how busy you are and i am thankful for your review .someone once said to me "if you want something done , ask a busy person" and this is a perfect example of that. you've been home one day and with your travel schedule. you still found the time to write this very nice review. thank you very much! Best Wishes for MacDougal's health. Donna
Lovely One-Bedroom Cottage Has Comfort and Warmth of Home
We have rented this house since 2014; my husband and I love it and call it "our home away from home." Not only clean and comfortable; the house has a very unique history which was published in a local editorial. Walk to town, or Ocean Park to board bus transit for other sites on MV. Donna, the owner, could not be more pleasant to work with - she is gracious and wants you to enjoy your stay. We arrive pumped up for our visit and leave sadly longing for more days. I would recommend this to a couple, it has special ambience for two.
I am so blessed. i have the Best Guests! thank you! I, too, love the island and try to have your vacation be the Best! Donna
GREAT!! GREAT !! STAYCATION !!!!
This was the best two week vacation on the vineyard ever!! I have stayed in many houses over many years but this home was just perfect you are close to town (Walking ) yet in a quiet community, . Donna the owner was a joy , She made sure that every thing was at your fingertips that you could possibly need on a vacation.
