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 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!)

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

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.

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.
