Madaket House Rental Photos and Description

4 1/2 bedrooms, two bathrooms, sleeps nine

Lovely house in Madaket on the bike path, town shuttle, and a five minute bike ride or ten minute walk to the nearest of several beaches and harbor for duck feeding. The deck in front of the house overlooks a dirt road largely populated by the resident rabbits and beyond that a view of Hither Creek and the Madaket outer harbor. The first floor has a master bedroom (queen) and guest room (queen and single), remodeled kitchen and eating area that opens into the living room with water view, and bathroom. The second floor has one room with two extra long singles, a guest room with queen and single, and an interior children's play area/single bed aka 'The Cloud Room' and a bathroom. The basement is huge and has a ping pong table and various toys, umbrellas, beach chairs, etc. If you can get your hands on it you can play with it! The back yard is large enough to play croquet or catch. There's a small deck overlooking the back yard so you can supervise the kids

Telephone and internet: Free and unrestricted long distance telephone calls. High speed internet, both wired and wireless.

Thank You So Much!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Larry and Nancy for all your hospitality during our visit. Your house is perfect and the island is perfect. It was a vacation that my family will never forget!!

The house has everything you will need for your vacation. You actually don't even need a vehicle! The bus stop is right outside and you can also walk to the beach, harbor, and Millie's resturant very easily. There is a bike/walking path that you can use to access the whole island. I recommend using the bus to go into town. Parking is very limited in town. The bus stop in town is one block from the ferry terminal, right in the middle of the town. For 2 bucks a person (one way) it is a no brainer. The house also has a HUGE back yard. Our kids ran around, played croquet, and simply enjoyed themselves there. You simply can't go wrong with Sand Castle. (Also, be sure to change the flag everyday and try the outdoor shower, it is really great!)

Wonderful place to vacation.

  • 5 of 5
Sand Castle is an easy 1/2 mile walk to Madaket beach-one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. You can walk for miles along the shoreline. The house is great. It has an airy, well-stocked kitchen, lots of games and books, and an easy flow for visiting. We loved the view off the porch where we would eat breakfast in the morning watching Hither creek and Madaket harbor, and then gathered there again to toast lovely sunsets and another glorious day on Nantucket. Larry is a great host and made sure we had everything we needed to make the stay pleasant. The bus stops right at the corner by the house, so it was easy for people to get in & out of town. We used our bikes on the bike path that runs right past the house to get into town or go off exploring.

Sand Castle has a great location and is well-appointed for a comfortable stay. We hope to return soon.

Sand Palace

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Sand Palace was special for a number of reasons. First, the house was very comfortable and everything one would want for a vacation was supplied by the considerate owners, Larry and Nancy. The attention to detail and concern for your enjoyment was most appreciated. The location of the house was not only convenient to the beach, but we so enjoyed the lovely views from the front deck looking out towards the water and wildlife. The week provided us with many wonderful memories with family and friends.It was truly a wonderful week and we look forward to returning one day. Thank you to our most considerate hosts, Larry and Nancy.

Sand Palace in Madaket

  • 5 of 5
The Sand Palace was the perfect home for our week-long three-generation family vacation. We were 10 people in four family units, housed very comfortably in this compact but spacious home. The kitchen is nicely remodeled. The furnishings all around are clean, and everything is well maintained. The basement is a gold-mine of toys, all available for use: ping pong table, beach chairs, kites, lawn games, sand toys, etc., etc. Also lots of baby equipment such as high chairs and strollers. Owners are thoughtful and generous.
The shuttle was one of the great features of our stay. It stops right across the street and will take you to town, then on across the island if you want to go. We bought week-long passes and got a lot of use from them. You can also place your bike on the rack.
We didn't know Nantucket when we made this reservation, but Madaket was a lucky choice. It is the "unfancy" end of the island, where homes are of reasonable size and people do their own gardening. No trophy homes out here. The beach was fabulous, and the bay also. Next time we will bring kayaks and put in at Madaket Bay.
We rented bikes for the week, and could get everywhere on them (with supplement from the shuttle bus). Try the bike shop off the main drag on the way to the children's beach; they were generous and helpful.
We hope to enjoy another week at the Sand Palace in the near future.

2 perfect vacations at Sand Palace

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the Sand Palace the past 2 summers and have been very pleased. The house is in excellent condition and very well supplied. The setting is excellent- immediate access to the shuttle and bikepath, but far enough back from the road to avoid any traffic noise. (For us, the shuttle is one of the great features of Madaket; it whisks you from the peace and quiet of Madaket to the activities and restaurants of the town with no hassle, through great scenery.)The large yard is nice, with rabbits always on the scene. The view from the living room of Hither Creek and Madaket Harbor is very pretty (better than the website photos suggest), with great sunset views. We were concerned to learn that Madaket Beach would be closed this summer, but things worked out fine, as Smiths Point beach is nicer than ever, and is a quick bike ride or a manageable walk. Numerous other beaches also are easily reachable as well. Finally, the owners of Sand Palace are very efficient and thoughtful. We've rented many vacation houses in many places, and at higher prices, but Sand Palace is the best!

Beach days will find you at any number of island beaches. Wake up in the morning and decide if you want surf or calm, then go to that side of the island. Two of the beaches are a five minute bike ride or 15 minute walk away. Two more that have surf are a 5-10 minute drive, and there are many more within a 20 minute drive.

Misty/rainy days are good for numerous museums, historical sites, harbor kayaking, family games in the living room warmed by the wood burning stove, or a ping pong match.
