A Fabulous Nantucket Experience!!

Our group of 7 adults had a most enjoyable time at this house in late September and highly recommend it to others. The homeowners, concierge and caretaker were all great to work with and responsive whenever questions came up. The house was well maintained and appointed, laid out extremely well, and even more spacious than the photos depict.
It's perfect for families and worked well for our group. The master bedroom suite is huge, with shower and Jacuzzi tub, separate sitting area, TV, table/desk, and doors opening onto a large screened-in porch. The main living room has a huge flatscreen TV, DVD and CD players, and was a popular gathering spot. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing & serving meals, and in addition to the large dining table and kitchen bar, al fresco dining is an option on the outdoor deck where we enjoyed great sunsets.
This rental property includes access to tennis courts just a block away, and there are two beaches within a few blocks’ walk. An afternoon walk to Jetties Beach brought an unexpected sight – experienced kite surfers zipping across the waters and catching air was quite exhilarating! There are miles of biking trails, wonderful restaurants & shopping, boating excursions, scooter and jeep rentals, museums, historical tours, lighthouses and more. My husband found the links style Miacomet Golf Course most enjoyable. Gail's Tour took us all over the island with historical and entertaining info about homes and sites on the island and a visit to the Sankaty Lighthouse. We took an afternoon sail on The Endeavor, a beautiful 31 foot sailing sloop, toured the wonderful Whaling Museum, and visited Cisco Brewery/Vineyard with live entertainment outdoors and great people-watching. Two in our group took a fishing trip from the Straight Wharf and prepared dinner with their fresh catch of the day.
Restaurant choices are phenomenal in Nantucket, from the upscale to casual. We had breakfast at Topper’s outdoor deck at the Wauwinet, a casual dinner at Brotherhood of Thieves' in the downstairs dining room with its old whaling bar atmosphere, enjoyed great clam chowder and water views all around at The Ropewalk on the Straight Wharf, and thoroughly enjoyed our final night's dinner at Fig's at 29 Fair.
Staying at such a wonderful house enhanced our Nantucket experience tremendously, and we highly recommend it to others.
