About The Owner
Patty used to vacation as a little girl on Martha's Vineyard. As she grew older she gravitated toward Nantucket which she soon discovered was her favorite summer place. Patty introduced me to the island in 1978. There was something very special about Nantucket that captivated us-the un-crowded beaches, wonderful recreation-swimming, biking, body surfing, fishing- the list goes on. After a day in the sun there were wonderful restaurants second to none. As we became more acquainted with Nantucket we found ourselves going to Madaket for the Sunsets, surfcasting at Smith's Point, and swimming in the surf. In 1983 we took the plunge and bought a beach house in Madaket. The rest is history and great memories. The kids grew up on the beach in the summer, selling lemonade on the bike path, and finally having summer jobs on Nantucket during high school and college. We're older now, but young at heart, and we still enjoy all the things that brought us to Nantucket in the first place. Come, enjoy, and we know you'll return again and again.

Why The Owner chose Madaket
We bought here because the beach is seconds away and you can take long walks along the water. Madaket is on the west end of Nantucket where the sunsets are fabulous. There's great surfcasting for bluefish and stripers. You can enjoy just about every water sport imaginable in Madaket. The quiet water on the harbor side and surf on the other, proves a great benefit for children at different ages. Being six miles out of town keeps the pace of life slow and relaxing, yet the cobblestone street of town are only ten minutes away. In the last analysis, it's all about the beach, the ocean, the surf.
