If you are looking for a way to experience the calm and beauty of the island of Nantucket this is the place for you.
The house is very comfortable with a master upstairs with a great view of the bay. There is also another bedroom with its own bath and a queen bed upstairs. That is the extent of the second floor.
The ground floor has a very open feel with a great kitchen that is fully stocked with all cooking needs, a beautiful dining room table for 10 and a living room/TV room with a fireplace and a small sun room. The ground floor also has bedroom with bunk beds and another single bed with access to a full BR a few steps away. The most beautiful part of the house is the deck. It overlooks hundreds of acres of protected land and dunes. You can see the bay on one side and the sound on the other. The sunsets are spectacular. The feeling of all of this open space and views is so relaxing and beautiful. We loved it.
The house is about 15 to 20 minutes from downtown, depending on traffic. It has access directly to the beach, which is really nice and calm with a sandbar and great for kids. You can also get to the Madaket bike path which is brand new and pristine.
All in all we had an amazing stay and loved the house. It is comfortable without any pretense and in a great location. Highly recommended for a family with kids.
