Martha's Vineyard (including nearby Chappaquiddick Island), is an 89.48 square mile (231.75 km²) island off approx. 7 miles from the southern coast of Cape Cod and is often known simply as "the Vineyard". Located in the American Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Vineyard makes up most of the County of Dukes County, Massachusetts (the rest of the county consists of Cuttyhunk and the other Elizabeth Islands and the island of Nomans Land). The island is known as a summer colony and tourism attraction, though its year-round population has grown quite considerably since the 1960s, despite being accessible only by boat and by air.

Martha's Vineyard is made up of six towns:

Tisbury, including the main village of Vineyard Haven in the town center - official Tisbury Web Site
Edgartown, which includes Chappaquiddick Island - official Edgartown Site
Oak Bluffs, home of the Gingerbread Cottages - official Oak Bluffs web site
West Tisbury, a town known for agriculture - official West Tisbury web site
Chilmark, including the fishing village of Menemsha - official Chilmark web site
Aquinnah, formerly known as Gay Head - Dukes County Aquinnah web page

The primary features of Martha's Vineyard are its hundreds of miles of pristine beaches (both public and private), historic and scenic towns, shopping and dining, unique and varied New England atmosphere, vigorous arts culture, and plentiful outdoor activities such as sailing, fishing, beachgoing, hiking, golf, and much more.

Martha's Vineyard Real Estate has consistently held its value over time, and is considered one of the best investments in New England. Additionally, properties enjoy steady vacation rental values - a benefit for both homeowners and vacation renters alike. Call us and we'd be happy to tell you much more.
