Absolutely an awesome experience and location. Place is equipped with everything you need. Plenty of room. Will definitely be back.
We really enjoyed our stay at the historic property. Great location in the middle of town with easy access to everything including nice views from the deck. If anything, they need to have more pillows available. Other than that, it was perfect.
I can never say enough great things about my experience staying at the arcade building. The owner made some upgrades by adding new kitchen appliances and grill which has only enhanced the amazing condition and accommodations. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for easy access to everything in Oak Bluffs including the ferry.
Firstly, we were travelling from the U.K. In our view, the apartment needs attention internally and we were disturbed until the early hours by a resident and staff of the nearby restaurant. Never heard noise from the road or any bars. The walls and wood need painting, the grouting around the bath needs replacing, the bathroom needs a make-up/shaving mirror as the only mirror in the apartment is above the wash basin and too far away, the apartment has wood floors which is great but the bedroom has thick, industrial looking carpet, the settee and some furniture look very tired and the settee isn’t comfortable and there are issues of safety regarding the lack of door and window security and a very high step to the only safe balcony. The other balcony on the front has a sloping floor with a barrier but nothing to stop items falling on to the balcony or pavement below. Definitely a no go area for young children. Our main issue was the noise from residents on the floor below and staff from the restaurant gathering at the rear of the building, sometimes until 4am! Larry offered to speak to the residents but we were concerned this would exacerbate the situation. Despite its busy location, we were never disturbed by street noise. Given all this and the fact that when we arrived, albeit 90 mins early as we had time on our hands (which was because we weren’t given the arrival time until May 2018, several months after we had to book the Ferry to Oak Bluffs), the apartment was in a dreadful state. The cleaners did their best but even when we returned 20mins after the confirmed arrival time, we still had a fridge to empty and coffee table to clean. It made us wonder what sort of people had been staying there. One other issue, when we found the property on the web in August 2017, we contacted Larry to check the dates were available, they were and he held them while we booked our flights which had just been released. Only when we contacted him to confirm did we find out the price was wrong on the web as Larry had not updated the web page for 2018, it was double! In the U.K. when this happens, the advertised price is honoured but Larry wanted to go 50/50 on the difference and knowing how few properties were available for our dates, we felt we had no choice but to accept. All in all, compared to other properties we’ve seen on MV, we feel the apartment is over-priced for its condition, quality of furniture and noise. If you can tolerate the noise and don’t intend spending much time there, it will be fine for you.
I enjoyed the entire trip to no end. The stay was excellent the location perfect. You are in a great town Oak Bluffs you’re with in walking distance to everything you could possibly want. Great food and endless fun lots of things to do fantastic shopping all in walking distance. Extremely happy with my stay cottage was a great fit. We will be planning another trip to Oak Bluff. Thank you Larry
We stay at Larry's every summer, this will be our third! You cant beat the location for Oak Bluffs, right across from the grocery store, close to the park, and 5 minutes from the beach. Larry is always a pleasure to deal with, and has the apartment kept very well! We love the deck and people watching, as we have a small toddler and dont ge to frequent the restaurants as much. Highly recommend.
