Why RL chose Katama
I was first introduced to Martha's Vineyard when visiting with high school friends. I returned to the island year after year, staying in Katama, where I had first discovered the magic of the island. Later, when my young family began to plan summer vacations, we found the island offered everything we desired. We adore Katama and the island. I won't reveal my age by writing how many years I have treasured my visits; but I have many years of family memories of our Katama holidays. Our Katama home is a truly special place.
