  • Amazing Aquinnah Waterview Rental

    "This house was amazing. It suited our needs perfectly. I wanted an up island rental with views of the ocean that could provide lots of living space and outdoor space for my family. The great room was very open and bright with stunning water views and nice breezes. The updated kitchen had everything you needed to cook with and to entertain with - just fabulous. The screened in porch was great for dining outside but not dealing with bugs. The Master bedroom was bright and cheery with a very nice bed. Actually, all the beds were terrific. 3 of the 4 bedrooms on bottom floor were cozy but very charming and were perfect for sleeping/hanging out. The queen bed room on bottom floor was a very nice size and had a great bed as well. Laundry room was super handy and the home supplied plenty of linens, towels and extra blankets. The den on bottom floor was a great hang out spot for my kids and visiting family who came to hang on some nights. Really, there was space for everyone. I must not forget the awesome outside shower - so perfect after a day at the beach and the water pressure was great. The home is off a long dirt road but we were still able to ride our bikes from the house to the main roads. The access to Lobsterville Beach and Mememsha was terrific and of course Philbin Beach and the lighthouse and cliffs. We had family in Chilmark and so this house was a perfect location. The owner, Barbara and her caretaker for her home were a delight to work with. What a wonderful week we had in this very special home."

  • Peaceful, secluded, rustic

    "Secluded, rustic, private cottage set off dirt road with quick foot access to private, casting beach. Excellent restaurants nearby, and Menemsha for fresh seafood! The ocean facing decks make the upstairs living space so delightful. If anything, I would add comfy couches or a sectional, so achey adults can stretch out at the same time and enjoy the view. Description of property accurate -- best feature of my vacation, clean, up island getaway with my two dogs, loved it! Darkness has a new meaning...Not easily found at night! Lots of stairs."

  • Surreal Gem

    "Hi Jeff and Suzy, Thank you so much for allowing us the privilege of experiencing your beautiful estate. To date it stays as one of the most memorable family vacations we have ever had. We have been a lot of places, but your home and property tops them all. There is something so magical about the property and the home that it is impossible to put into words. Our kids beg us every year to return to Martha's Vineyard to your home because of their experience which through their eyes was so invaluable and amazing. We have too many memories to list, but a few of our favorites were the clam back, the sand cliffs, the ferry to Menemsha to get fresh lobster and just being with one at the home itself! Our memories at your home on the Vineyard are priceless..........Thank you so much! Jill and Greg B."

Aquinnah Travel Tips

Let Aquinnah Rentals Awe You This Summer

For years, Martha’s Vineyard has been a popular tourist destination during the summer months. Aquinnah, which was once known as Gay Head, is located on the west side of the island and boasts bright, colorful cliffs. Years ago, the Wampanoag Tribe made its home in Aquinnah, which gives the area plenty of history. Because it is such a beautiful and picturesque part of Martha’s Vineyard, Aquinnah rentals are always in high demand.

Aquinnah Rentals Lead to the Cliffs

If there is anything to do or see when staying in Martha’s Vineyard rentals, it is definitely the Gay Head Cliffs. The amazing cliffs of clay offer an amazing view. If you are lucky enough to book Aquinnah accommodations nearby, be sure to take a bicycle or walk out to take in the view. Just be sure to stay out of the clay and off the cliffs, as it is illegal to stand there. You want to spend the night in your Aquinnah rentals, not the local jail! A great spot to see the cliffs is Aquinnah Beach, also known as Moshup Beach; just be aware that it is a nude beach.

Aquinnah Accommodations Are Influenced by Native Americans

Because the Wampanoag Tribe made its home in the area for thousands of years previously, there is a strong Wampanoag cultural influence in Aquinnah. This is evident in many Aquinnah accommodations and their décor and design. In fact, the town has become the center of Wampanoag culture. Many Martha’s Vineyard rentals are situated near museums featuring Wampanoag exhibits and historical information.

More to Do at Martha’s Vineyard Rentals

Staying the summer in Aquinnah rentals allows you to truly experience the area. Aquinnah accommodations may range from small fishing cottages to sprawling, spacious mansions. However, regardless of which Martha’s Vineyard rentals you end up booking, there is fun to be had by the whole family. Check out the historical Gay Head Lighthouse for an evening tour after spending a day at the beach with the kids. Aquinnah is perfect for family picnics, bicycling, and good old-fashioned fun.
