This is a perfect location on MV to explore Oak Bluffs and The island. Everything is right outside the door or a ten minute walk...shopping, beach, restaurants, bus to the other towns, and ferry. No need for a car.
The apartment itself is well equipped, roomy, sunny, and quiet with a front porch, a side porch and ocean views. It is on the top floor but the three flights are easy ones and well worth it.
Larry was very responsive to the couple of small issues we had while there.

“No better place to stay”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I have stayed here a few times and this year was special. The place was perfectly clean and the view from the balcony is like nothing I have experienced in marthas vineyard. The owner reached out beforehand supplying all the necessary information so that my transition from the ferry to the conveniently located apartment was smooth. I already am preparing my next vacation to the Historic arcade building

We have stayed at this location for five years.
We have had a great experience each year.
The location can't be beat. Walk to the ferry,restaurants,and the beach. Ideal for when we have family or friends join us. Dining on the porch always brings looks from people walking along Circuit Ave.admiring the unique local.
Street noise is no problem. Simply put on the AC at bedtime. It is not that noisy anyway. The fragrance from Back Door Donuts is an added bonus. I can smell the apple fritters now.

“Fabulous accommodations”

Love, love, love this apartment. Two bedrooms, spacious living room, and modern equipped kitchen. You'll feel right at home in these comfy quarters with a large balcony overlooking Circuit Ave. Plenty of restaurants just steps away, and a short walk to the harbor. It has an easy to use electronic key system so that you don't have to carry around a key. This was my second stay and I'm looking forward to next year. The owner is very accommodating and will respond immediately should there be any issues.

I cannot say enough good things about our first stay at the Historic Arcade at Oak Bluffs property. We spent 4 days here and have never been more comfortable on vacation. We were a family of 4 with two kids ages 14 and 16, and we travelled with our small dog with the permission of the owner, Larry. We stayed in Unit 3 on the top floor at the property. It was spacious with a bedroom that had a full size bed and a twin bed. There was also a loft with a ship's ladder to climb up where the kids could sleep in twin beds. And there was also a futon couch in the living room so technically the place could sleep 6 people. The apartment was immaculately cleaned and comfortably furnished with attention to detail like many plush towels, a game table, beach chairs, chairs and a grill on the patio/balcony, and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen from plates to glasses to silverware to bottle openers, etc., etc., etc. No stone was left unturned. The apartment is located right on the main street in Oak Bluffs with convenient 24 hour parking a 5 minute walk away at the waterfront. We enjoyed the huge portion of the delicious nachos at Sharkey's restaurant on the first floor of the building on the night we arrived, and we did not hear any noise at all coming from the street below from our apartment at bedtime. Loved the easy keyless entry. I cannot say enough good things about this property. We recommend this location without hesitation, and we cannot wait until we have an opportunity to return.

Came to the Vineyard for a girls weekend, there was 5 of us. If you enjoy being in the heart of everything you will enjoy this place. Located on the 2nd floor overlooking the main street (so can get a little loud if there's a lot going on below), it was wonderful to be so close to everything.

Place was clean, spacious and had all the amenities you would want from a home away from home. The large balcony overlooking the road was nice, air conditioners in the windows and a beach towel for each person was a nice to have. Within walking distance to beaches and gingerbread houses. Definitely recommend. Owner was very good to work with too. We will be back again!

I'll try to count what I love about this place, although I can't put it all out here. There's just so much.
Let's start with the most important feature - LOCATION!
This place is in the absolutely best location on the island in my opinion. We were sitting down on the balcony people watching, while people passing by, pause and look at the place with envy. Who wouldn't want to stay in the absolute center of town.
Second - the unit is spacious, clean and pet friendly. I brought my dogs with me (2 big dogs), and they loved just lounging on the balcony, looking at people and dogs passing by. Whenever we weren't sitting out there we were in the water swimming with our dogs - it was heaven.
Third - There's no key pickup, no key to carry around. There's a door code that works for the duration of our stay.
Lastly - the owner. Larry is a kind thoughtful generous guy, who will makes it his business to make sure you will enjoy your stay.
