This is a perfect location to stay in Oak Bluffs. Isabelle is a doll and made us feel extremely welcome and at home. The front porch is huge and has a picturesque view of the ocean. Rooms are clean and breakfast is made each day with love. Would come back here anytime!

I just returned from Martha's Vineyard and I really enjoyed staying at Isabelle's Beach House. The location is great, just steps from the water and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The B13 bus stops right in from making it a breeze to ride to Edgartown or Vineyard Haven. Isabelle makes a wonderful breakfast and I enjoyed the waffles and... More

When you stay here, you feel like a guest of a friend. Isabelle's naturally warm and welcoming and her charming Gallic accent adds to the picture. The decor is lovely and the location is gorgeous. I came over from Woods Hold on the ferry as a foot passenger and took the bus straight here with the bus driver even pointing... More

I chose Isabella's Beach House based on the consistent high reviews on this site. I loved the house, the location & view across the beach. Isabella herself helped us to find a reasonable car rental as soon as we arrived. She lent us beach chairs to go watch the sunset at another point on the island. The place was clean,... More

We had to evacuate the boat that we were staying on due to severe weather and she graciously accommodated our last minute stay. Isabelle's is directly across the street from the beach. The sunrise view is amazing. The room (#4) was lovely with a very comfortable bed and a nice sized bathroom. Isabelle provided a great breakfast including her special:waffles... More

Isabelle's is the best Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed at. The rooms are clean, quaint and comfortable and the service is top notch. Each morning we received a homemade delicious breakfast of a fresh waffle topped with fruit, freshly made granola, warm quiche with hot coffee, fresh fruit and cereal! It was delicious The location is also amazing,... More

We spent a the last weekend in June at Isabelles beach house for our anniversary. Isabelle and her staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, giving us all kinds of tips on good restaurants and activities to do on Marthas Vineyard. The inn is right across the road from the beach, and minutes from town and from the ferry. It has... More

Wonderful b&b, terrific location and clean cozy rooms. Isabelle is delightful and helpful with info related to the area. The front porch and the view make this a wonderful place to stay. Breakfast was wonderful and her cold drinks and cookies hit the spot in the afternoon. An added advantage was the outdoor shower. The rooms are compact but comfortable.... More

Great B&B, terrific location, friendly staff, comfortable cozy rooms, loved the front porch, generous selection of breakfast foods-I enjoyed the homemade granola and my husband enjoyed the homemade waffles and warm chocolate chip cookies served in the afternoon). I cannot say enough about this wonderful place. Isabelle and her staff make you feel at home the minute you walk thru... More

Isabelle is extremely nice. The view from the front porch is amazing and worth the stay. Her homeade chocolate chips are equally amazing. The house was very well laid out and extremely clean. The disappointing part was we found our room on the 3rd floor to be extremely small. The breakfast was more of a continental breakfast, rather than a... More

Hello John, Thank you so much for your kind comments. It was a pleasure having you as our guest. We are so happy you enjoyed our amazing view from our porch. We do apologize that you were unhappy with your room size, our Inn built in the 1900's is big on history but not in size of your particular room.... More
