It's well known that Martha's Vineyard is the perfect destination for families. The island life holds "old-school" nostalgia to the days where you knew your neighbors, kids knew to make it home by sunset, and you trusted your fellow man.

Normally, many tenants wait closer to January to book their summer rental when the Steamship Authority opens reservations for the next summer season. But the trend as of late shows that many tenants are booking earlier and earlier in advance. And by early, we mean usually on the heels of their current stay! It helps the tenant lock in their desired rental before anyone else and it helps spread out the required payments. All of this makes for less stress than rushing to book when everyone else does in January for their Martha's Vineyard Rental.
