Recent Aquinnah property reviews

  • Fantastic winter getaway

    "We just returned from an excellent winter stay at the Hillside cottage, and it exceeded our expectations in every way! The house is beautiful inside and out, and is very comfortable even in the middle of winter. It's off the beaten path on a very quiet part of the island, and the views (especially sunrise!) from the master bedroom are spectacular (it's like sleeping in a cupola!). We would love to come back in the future!"

  • Great house and location

    "My husband and I rented this home last Summer and it was fantastic. Bob was so great to coordinate with and this is a new, gorgeous home. The entire house is newly renovated with high end finishes and the home is well maintained. This was perfect for my husband and i plus our son and in laws. The gayhead light house and cliffs are about a mile down the road. It's nice and quiet (even though there is a main house on the property we felt we had plenty of privacy). We hope to rent again!"

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.
