This summer, like all summers on Martha’s Vineyard, was  gone with what seemed like a blink of an eye.  Rentals were understandably off to a slow start at the beginning of the year due to the state of our economy. My fingers were crossed that the allure of a sun filled week at State Beach or the Agricultural Fair would be enough to bring back old and new visitors alike. Once June came, with only a handful of sunny days, I knew I had my work cut out for me.

What separated this season from previous rental seasons was the amount of inventory that was still available at the beginning of the summer. Also, owners who have never rented in the past were now opening up their houses to rentals.  When the draw of the Island was just too strong to stay away, last minute renters were able to still find a vacation home that would suit all of their needs.  As more and more last minute renters arrived, Martha’s Vineyard was transformed, once again; into the frenzy we call August.

With the Obama’s scheduled visit at the end of August you could feel the excitement in the air. The First Family enjoyed their stay up-island in Chilmark and enjoyed the occasional round of golf or dinner out. Surprisingly, throughout their week visit they maintained an extremely low profile.  With all of the media attention that their trip received, this presidential trip, like others before it, helped put Martha’s Vineyard back on the map.  Overall, 2009 turned out to be a very successful rental season here on the Vineyard.  However, there is no rest for the weary as I am already booking for next season! Whether you are a first time visitor or have been returning summer after summer to this captivating island, I would be honored to help find you the perfect vacation rental home for 2010!
