  • beautiful home

    "My wife and I just had the most lovely week staying at the Mermaid Cottage. The location is the best and the sunsets can't be beat. A very romantic house to stay at. I will be coming back."

  • family of 5 with dog

    "Stayed for a week late July at this house in West Tisbury. Very convenient central location to get everywhere on the island. House is very large with 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Yard in the rear is very large with plenty of grass, we played croquet one evening, grilled several others, and since it is out admist farms, the rear yard is very private. The owner, George, is very accommodating and his island recommendations made for a very pleasurable stay."

  • The Best of the Best

    "Just returned from a truly perfect weekend in Martha's Vineyard. Six High School Gals who graduated together 45 years ago met at this lovely home to relax and enjoy the island. The home was so much more than we could ever ask for. Beautifully decorated, state of the art kitchen, 4 large bedrooms with very comfortable beds, two living spaces, dinning room, all open up to a large deck. Private with an enormous yard, perfect place for a family, with space for kids to run. The property is just ten minutes from the ferry and within steps to Morning Glory Farm. A very short drive to several beaches, restaurants, clubs, etc. Perfect location. I cannot say enough about the property. We cooked in, ate out, enjoyed picnic's at the beach and just sat for hours on the deck. There were bikes to ride, beach chairs for the taking, boogie boards, etc. Barbara and Jon were gracious hosts (who live "off island") and took care of our every need. We six ladies in our 60's couldn't have had a more perfect weekend. Thank you, thank you!!!"

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.
