It's no secret that Michelle and Barack Obama enjoy spending down time at Martha's Vineyard.

Martha's Vineyard has been an annual holiday spot for the Obama family since their time in the White House, and now they're putting down roots in the gorgeous villa that they rented over the summer.

Although the quaint island has long been a vacation spot for politicians and celebrities, including former President Clinton and President Kennedy and their families, this marks the first time that a former president has bought property on the Island.

Rumours of the sale had been circulating since last summer, when the Obamas rented the property for several weeks.
