We had a wonderful week. This home is just as described.

Stayed: July 2012
This summer I was brave enough to take six, yes six, 16 year old girls, my wife, and newborn to Nantucket for a sweet sixteen promise. We had the great fortune of staying at WINDSWEPT, a private home owned and maintained by Mrs. C. This home was better than expected. Close enough to town that the girls could walk during the day or evening; and adjacent to the bike paths, which enabled them to ride to Surfside. The home was exactly as pictured. Clean and neat. My wife is a neat freak. The kitchen has everything needed for the week. The bedding was comfortable, and as promised. The house was kept cool, as it sits atop the highest part of the island, so you can enjoy the Nantucket breeze, or use the air-conditioning in every room. The laundry machines are new. The basement has everything needed for the week. Bogie boards, beach umbrellas, coolers, volleyball, croquet, badminton, beach towels, ect. You really should bring nothing, except clothes and a bike. My wife & I did enjoy a cocktail on the porch at night, as we faced west towards the windmill. An actual working windmill maintained by the islanders, that was spinning several times during the week. Perhaps the best part, was with all the rooms, each girl had there own bed. We were able to split them into pairs at night. Mrs. C. was a delight, and didrepsect our privacy. Typical New England islander. It was a wonderful vacation, and just last week, the girls asked “can we get the same house”. That says it all!

Owner's Response: We are so delighted that Dr. F. and his six teenage girls enjoyed our house. I met the quiet, polite group one afternoon on the enclosed porch when they were having a snack and playing a board game. One thanked me for allowing them to stay in our house. She said it is beautiful and perfectly located, as did Dr. F. and his wife.
I saw the group again when the girls and Dr. F. were returning from the beach. Everyone was smiling and tan.
It is a joy to have such a nice group appreciate our hard work managing and maintaining our main house
Carolyn Crowley, the owner
