For 11 years I've been going to MV on St Patty's day weekend to play in a discgolf tournament. Many of us have stayed in the past at the hotel that is open all year in Oak Bluffs. It was a decent place to stay but we've had some challenges there in the past. I believe there are only 3 places open all year round on the Vineyard. One thing it was lacking at the hotel was a common place for us to socialize in.
This year we stumbled upon Isabelle's Beach house. We rented out the entire place. Without a doubt we will be back. For less money you get a nicer room (it is smaller), breakfast each morning and a common area for all of us to eat and socialize. You walk out the front door to a porch that faces directly East and has only the road between you and the beach. On Sunday morning, I watched the sun come over the horizon from one of the many chairs provided. It's still within walking distance to all the main stores and restaurants in Oak Bluffs. At most it's a little over a quarter mile.
Most importantly, what you get here is Isabelle!! She cares!! She wants to be sure you have a good time and want to come back. Can things go wrong in the hospitality business? Yes they can, and many times they do. Isabelle and her staff were OVERLY apologetic to even the smallest issue like running out of Strawberries during off season for waffles. Big Deal,.I'll have blueberries. We told her that everybody had to leave around 8:15 on Saturday and 8:00AM would be too late for breakfast what did she do? She offered to come in at 7:30 instead. We had an engagement on the boat on the way over. Isabelle was right there with the champagne. Yup she cares!!
If you want total peace and quiet then know what you are coming into and go somewhere else. I read some reviews complaining about the fact it not quiet enough in the rooms. This is not the Ritz Carlton. This is a 100 year old house with small close together rooms. Most reviews seem like they really enjoyed it. For us,..we couldn't say enough nice things about it. Only thing missing was we left on Sunday when Isabelle was gone so we couldn't say goodbye! Be ready for us Isabelle,..we are coming back!
