“A Memorable Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

Even before our scheduled five-day stay--our first time there--I was positively impressed with owner Isabelle, and later impressed with the Beach House itself. That first positive impression came from owner Isabelle, who responded so kindly at the news of my son's death just days before the scheduled stay as she offered to refund fully the price or to alter the schedule, as we did.

When there, we were in awe of the B&B's location, facing the Atlantic across the road. And in the House itself we were especially impressed by seaside decor and the care with wihich it was kept. Also, we were very pleased with whatever service we required, including that of the breakfast every morning for our four mornings there.

Most of all, we were impressed with Isabelle's kindness and help as we stayed in Oak Bluffs for the first time. We look forward to a return soon.

We just got back from staying at Isabelle's for my birthday and it was everything we hoped for. Clean, comfortable, beach themed rooms. Great front porch for enjoying the ocean and beach right across the street. They had beach towels and chairs available for us to enjoy the beach with. Waffles and chocolate cookies were awesome! Isabelle and her staff are eager to help with any questions you may have. Only thing they cannot help with is the weather - if only they could! Looking forward to going back soon.

This place was great & staff were very kind & helpful! Clean, affordable & we especially liked the quick, beautiful drive into Edgartown right along Seaview where the house was located. Stunning sunsets, waterfront homes & liked that u can walk or park your car at different points. Oak Bluffs Park & town r close & are also a must see! Great breakfast & good restaurants but ask before trying bc pricey! Upon arrival, I forgot my iphone charger 4 my phone 2 help us navigate. Isabelle was kind enough 2 allow me 2 borrow hers vs buying a brand new 1! Nice surprise & very accommodating! Thanks! STAY HERE! :)

Friendly hosts and a comfortable B&B, convenient to restaurants, shopping, attractions and bus transportation, great views of the water.
Isabelle personally serves a wonderful breakfast each morning and bakes fresh cookies every afternoon.
We enjoyed our stay!

We decided at the spur of the moment to head to Martha's Vineyard for our anniversary this past October. Isabelle's seemed like a good B&B so we booked a room and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The setting was beautiful, with an expansive porch overlooking the ocean, and our room also overlooked the ocean as well. Isabelle herself was delightful and the breakfast was great! It was very easy to walk into Oak Bluffs from there. I guess we were there during the normal off-season for Martha's Vineyard but we were very glad that Isabelle's was open and available.

We booked a night at Isabelle's after reading great reviews on tripadvisor. It did not disappoint. Friendly service, clean and comfortable with a stunning setting. We were able to stroll into Oaks Bluff for dinner and drinks and then watched the sun come up. Breakfast was wonderful and our stay here was the highlight of our holiday. Perfect for a relaxing night or three!

My friend and I stayed in the twin room, with a side sea view in mid March 2014. With it being off-season, we pretty much had the entire place to ourselves, and at times, it felt like the entire island to ourselves - but I digress...

Firstly, the view from the porch is wonderful - the wide expanse of sea ahead of you (across the road) was beautiful and incredibly relaxing. The entrance into the dining area and living space is welcoming, and due to the weather, there was a roaring fire to welcome us. The whole house seems incredibly well designed - lovely pictures and objects adorn the surfaces. Isabelle herself was very welcoming with cookies and muffins and a wonderful breakfast, and fantastic advice and sites for us to go and see.

Alas, we had to cut our trip short due to a storm coming in that would have prevented us from leaving the following day - but our one night was wonderful and I cant wait to go back and visit again!
