It’s all about location, location, location. And if that location happens to be Provincetown or the Vineyard, a million bucks is typically just enough to get you in the door. Here are four vacation homes that defy that stereotype.

Perfect for: Small People with Small Families
It’s kind of like an apartment on a lot, but one with killer ocean views and enough beadboard to remind you that you’re on Martha’s Vineyard. And consider its massive mahogany deck (this is when size matters). Bonus: With only 855 square feet, you won’t have to make excuses for turning down weekend guests.
