Guestbook comments from the owner:
My girlfriends and I have been doing an annual girl's weekend on the Vineyard for the last 5 years. We tried two different locations the first two years and then three years ago found the Flying Seahorse. This is most definitely the place we hope to continue to return to for years to come. The location is amazing. You are one property away from the beach, and just a short 5-10 minute walk to Oak Bluffs.
I was a little nervous about trying this place out because it’s right at the beach, in the heart of Oak Bluffs but I couldn’t find any online reviews. All doubts were put to rest the moment I walked in. The Flying Seahorse is a wonderful treasure. The cottage is beautiful inside. Rooms are spacious and decor is fun and beachy. The location could not be better—a stone’s throw from the beach and short gorgeous walks to town, tennis, basketball courts, playground, the campground and OB marina. The owners are new, a lovely family eager to help and accommodate guests. I would give more stars if I could!
Quite possibly the most charming house we've ever stayed in! The pictures really do not do it justice. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, we were all smiles.
We stayed here for two weeks as part of a working vacation, so being able to walk to Inkwell beach on our lunch breaks was a massive upside. It was also incredibly easy to walk into OB for drinks and food on the nights we didn't take advantage of the amazing kitchen. On top of everything, Mike and Dana are so lovely and stayed in touch throughout our stay to make sure everything was okay.
Our only regret is that there are two of us so the adorable upstairs sleeping arrangements weren't put to good use! We will definitely look to book again with friends and famil
Our family has been vacationing at the Vineyard for 17 years and have stayed in a variety of homes. This was the first that had all of the features/amenities for our group of 5-10, depending on the year. Being near town, practically on the beach and having enough room for our now adult children and their friends are our three top criterion and the Flying Seahorse had all three! On top of that, the responsiveness of the Hollman's has been prompt and thoughtful and the home has everything you could possibly need during a week long stay. You will not regret trying it out!
