MADAKET WATERFRONT:RELAX ON THE BEACH. ENJOY INCREDIBLE VIEWS & STUNNING SUNSETS

Madaket Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms & Loft,sleeps 6; 2 Baths , A/C, WI-FI; HDTV; No Pets/Smoking

Location is everything and 'Views to Sea' has a truly unique spot on Nantucket. If you long to unwind and get away from it all, travel to the quieter, western end of the island known as Madaket. Our home sits beachfront on the harbor with views of Smith Pt., Tuckernuck Island, Eel Pt. and on a clear day, Muskeget Island. The water is calm and perfect for those traveling with young children. Facing west, we are famous for our sunsets. After sunset, the views continue when you look to the sky. Being away from Town's lights, you will experience some of the best stargazing you have ever seen. Shooting stars are frequent and early August is highlighted by the Perseids Meteor showers. Day or night, our home offers views not to be missed.

Our air conditioned home has two floors. The 1st floor has an open concept with kitchen, dining and living areas all flowing into one another. There are 2 bedrooms on the main level, one with a queen and the other, 2 twins. There is a full bath with tub and shower. Outside, find another enclosed shower which is a great experience if you've never had one! There is a large deck with wrap around bench seating as well as 4 Adirondack chairs. Upstairs, the loft has its own private deck with great harbor views. A daybed with pullout trundle bed can accomodate 2 people. There is a 2nd bathroom with an oversized tile shower and rainshower fixtures for a spa like experience. The upstairs family room with deck is the highlight of the house and a great place to end your day after exploring Nantucket. Relax on the deck with a refreshing beverage from the wet bar, enjoy the panoramic views, or watch a movie on the HDTV.

Seasonal Bus Service: Beginning in May, there is a bus service that stops 5 minutes from the house that takes you into Nantucket Town. We find it to be a great service and very convenient. Early in the season, it departs every 60 minutes. From late June and on, it goes to town every 30 minutes. For those with teens that do not drive yet, it affords them the independence to go into Town on their own (our 2 children loved that). Visit www.nrtawave.com for more info.

Fall into Nantucket

Don't overlook the months of September and October. Indian summer days and fewer crowds make these two months some of the best on the island. Fall restaurant week is in September and is a great time to try something new or visit some of your favorites. Cranberry Festival is in early October and is a wonderful event. The crimson bogs are a sight to behold and is a must see at least once on your travels to Nantucket.

BREATHTAKING!

  • 5 of 5
This home is everything you would dream of when thinking of a vacation getaway! The attention to detail in every room, and the meticulous and well-maintained furnishings, make you feel immediately at home. The views from every window are stunning, especially at sunset! It's a must to walk down the path to the private beach at sunset with your camera! The surrounding areas are perfect for walking, and biking. The owners were attentive and very friendly as they made sure we were aware of all that Nantucket had to offer. I would highly recommend this property to friends and family! Can't wait to return! :)

Owner's Response: A vacation getaway to Nantucket is, indeed, special. A good part of that experience is your stay at our home. I try to anticipate the needs of those who stay at our house; I think you will find that in the amenities and decor. Our location is special...sunset on our beach is the perfect way to end the day after exploring all that Nantucket has to offer.

A MADAKET GEM

  • 5 of 5
This house was the perfect home base for me and my family. The bedrooms and living room areas were clean and comfy. We were able to have our own space, relax on one of the three decks with a book and walk down to the bay to stick our feet in the water. You can even hear the crashing waves of Madaket Beach that is a mile down the road. The house is a five minute walk from the bus route but is in a peaceful spot away from the chaos of downtown. Each night we would try make sure we were home for a gorgeous Madaket sunset over the bay. The owners are friendly and have filled the house with not just island decor but also information on Nantucket's history, local fiction and even scrap books with island activities and restaurant menus. I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and relatives and hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. After exploring all that Nantucket has to offer, it's nice to return to our home and relax and unwind. A beautiful sunset in front of the house is the perfect way to end the day! We hope to see you back next year.

EVEN BETTER THAN EXPECTED, OCEANSIDE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful little oasis. We have been visiting Nantucket every summer for years, and this is the first year we decided to rent a house rather than stay in the local hotels and B&B's - to say the least, this house spoiled us. Upon arrival, we were pleased to see that the house was exactly as pictured, if not even better! My husband, 18-month old daughter and I stayed here for two weeks and it was absolute paradise. Every detail at the house has been thought of: from stacks of clean beach towels and a portable cooler with icepacks already frozen in the freezer to a blender, frosted mugs and even a cheese grater in the kitchen. The house was immaculate and set up really well with a living room and two beautiful porches on the second level affording views of both the marina (behind) and the bay out front past the dunes. We enjoyed walks on the private beach daily, as well as easy bicycle rides to Madaket for ice cream and basic supplies and a short drive (or bus ride) to Town, Bartlett Farm, the Maria Mitchell Aquarium and beyond. Nantucket itself is a little slice of heaven, but this house really makes it a perfect trip. Kathy was pleasant to work with as well, and we look forward to staying at this house again next year. No more island hotels or B&B's for us! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

RELAXING STAY WITH KIDS!

  • 5 of 5
After a week long stay on Martha's Vineyard at a hotel with four children - this house was a nice change of pace as was the island. The house was perfect for us (kids ages 7, 5, 2, and 1) as was the beach... It actually ended up raining with really thick fog for every day but one of our vacation - but the kids still had a blast chasing bunnies into the bushes and the second it stopped, we'd race to the beach. The house had everything you needed (and more) - we loved Madaket (as do the many celebrities we saw) - Millies is a must! We hope to return next year!

BEST HOUSE IN MADAKET!

  • 5 of 5
Found this house on Homeaway.com and contacted the owner. Received an immediate response with all the info I needed to make a decision. The house was absolutely immaculate with a gorgeous view of the water from both the lower and upper decks. Steps away from what feels like a private beach. The house was accurately described in the listing and actually exceeded our expectations. Best sunset from the upstairs living room with wet bar! Perfect location, went running on the bike paths to the beach and short drive into town. Owners take extremely good care of the house and have updated it nicely. I have stayed in lots of rentals on Nantucket and this is by far THE BEST. I am 100% returning with my family!

Owner's Response: With so many choices on Nantucket for renters, attention to detail is a must. I am a stickler for having things "just so" in our home...inviting, clean, and that "home away from home" feel. Communication is key so I check my emails frequently and respond promptly. Our location speaks for itself; we truly have a special place on the island. "Exceeding expectations" is what we strive for.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Your search can stop here as this is exactly what you are hoping to find on Nantucket. The location is idyllic--private and just steps across the front yard to your own gentle beach. The house is cozy and comfortable with luxury touches throughout. It is a perfect mix of beach cottage and upscale accommodations. Everything you need has been provided--from the fully equipped kitchen, to big fluffy towels to beach chairs and a cooler. Although not technically a bedroom, you will fight to take the upstairs loft where you can enjoy your own private deck and the ocean breezes.

There is such pride of ownership here and the rest of us are lucky to get to enjoy it. This house is even better than you will be expecting. The owners are very responsive and you can count on an all-around exceptional rental experience.
