President Barack Obama's Martha's Vineyard vacation will include a campaign fundraiser and a brief return to Washington, D.C., for business meetings, the White House confirmed Thursday.

 

 

President Obama, who flies up to the Vineyard with wife Michelle on Saturday, is expected to headline a fundraiser Monday for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

 

Obama will return to the White House for an unspecified string of meetings on Sunday, Aug. 17 and is set to return to Martha's Vineyard on Tuesday, Aug. 19 to resume his vacation.

He and his family are expected to wrap up their vacation on Sunday, Aug. 24.

The Obamas will stay in a secluded seven-bedroom, nine-bath, 8,100-square-foot home that sits on a 10-acre lot and features 17 rooms in total, The Martha's Vineyard Times reports.

The vacation home also reportedly features expansive water views of Vineyard Sound, an infinity pool and hot tub, and a dual tennis-basketball court, and overlooks the north shore and Vineyard Sound.

The First Family has vacationed on Martha's Vineyard every year since his 2008 election, with the exception of 2012, when he was up for re-election.

While on the Vineyard, Obama typically golfs, cycles, hikes, and enjoys dinners with friends.
