Wonderful week at the beach

Nippanoose was the perfect spot to stay in Nantucket. The beach was a short 3 minute walk away and was beautiful. I had some initial concerns about being on a harbor beach, but what a great choice. You will not miss the large waves at all once you see the lovely views.
The house itself was clean, well appointed and charming - a perfect beach house. It was spaciaous and having the beds and baths located on three levels, never felt croweded. The views from the deck were spectacular and we enjoyed a few lovely sunsets while there. The kitchen was well stocked with many high end finishings. There was plenty of lawn games, beach chairs, boogie boards and beach towels for all to you. We wanted for nothing!
As the first visitors of the season, did have one or two small things pop up: the cable/TV needed to be resynched, the ouside shower was not on, as well a a couple other minor occurances. Pat was absolutely wonderful and immedialty and grasciously helped take care of the issue so we could have an absolutley enjoyable time. She also provided a complete list of wonderful places to eat and sightsee on the island, so our vacation was effortless. I cannot Thanks Pat and David enough for their hospitality and for creating a relaxing, and comfortable vacation home for us to enjoy.
A few recomendations while on Nantucket: rent bikes from youngs - their great and will drop off and pick up. The 4 wheel tour out of the Wauwinet was fun and educational. Barlett Farm is worth the trip and we enjoyed some delicious tomatoes from there, as well as sumptuious desserts. In town, Straight Wharf Tavern has the absolute best Rosemary Biscotti - must have!
If you are considering bringing you dog, Nippanoose is a super spot. It's private and they will enjoy all the yard and beach.
I cannot wait to visit Nantucket again. I will definately call Pat to stay at this wonderful home.
