Old Madaket is a geographically small area that runs along Hither Creek . There is a laid-back quiet beachside community feeling in Old Madaket. It's 'old' fashioned in the nicest sense of the word.

New to Madaket is 'Millie's', a terrific restaurant and bar and a small convenience market paying a salute to Mildred Jewett a woman who watched over Madaket Harbor for over 50 years . They are only open during the summer season. Madaket Harbor is easily accessed from the town boat ramp, This is the only boat ramp for trailerable boats on the West End of the island. Hither Creek and Madaket Harbor are perfect for kayaking and sailing small boats. Kayaks can also be launched directly into Hither Creek.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic vacation rental Christine Neroni

Review Submitted July 7, 2011 Date of Stay June 17, 2011 Can't say enough about this place. Owner had great communication and was excellent to work with. The pictures online don't do the views any justice. We had 2 families total stay. Perfect room set up for 2 olders kids to be upstairs, while parents took downstairs bedrooms.Loved the fact the 2 downstairs bedrooms had their own baths. Close to town very close to beach and harbor. Quiet and peaceful. Loved the wrap around decks. No need to go to the beach with the incredible view. House was very comfortable and quaint. Air condtioning was a total plus with my 3 month old. Great price for the rental.Would definitely rent again. Rating:

5 out of 5 Edit your Response Owner Response: It is wonderful to have this special home built by my brother so appreciated. When my tenants are happy I am happy. This first season of rentals have brought me pleasant, considerate individuals who leave truly refreshed and ready to return next season. I feel grateful as a Nantucket native to be able to share my home and my island !

Beautiful Location, a Cozy Gem

  • 5 of 5
The house is just as it describes, charming. It is what Nantucket use to be. It was perfect for two couples and a few kids. The deck and views are spectacular. It was the perfect walk/distance to Millies and the Beach. The kids loved being able to scoot to the beach on the side roads and crabbing in the creek.

The owner is lovely and was very helpful.

My only warning is that it is mentioned that a few hours are included on the clean and that if you get the sheets and towels started early it will avoid the extra charges. We did that and still were charged 6 hours worth. I called the cleaning company and they charge per hour but if three people are there they charge per person per hour. Just expect a hundred to two hundred dollars to be deducted from your deposit and you will not be disappointed. We spent 5 hours doing laundry and light cleaning and still was charge a fair amount.

That being said we really enjoyed our stay at this cozy gem.

A perfect week in a wonderful home

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a week at this beautiful house and had the absolute best time. The owner is absolutely wonderful, very easy to communicate with and work with, and left lots of information regarding the island. Gorgeous views of Hither Creek and the wrap around deck is amazing for watching sunset. This house encompasses and exudes the charm Old Madaket and of the island-- from the beautiful architecture of the house to the decor with oil lamps, baskets, photos of Millie, and shelves of books to choose from when you need something to read. It was such a treasure to get to spend a week away at such a warm, welcoming home. I felt truly immersed in the history of the island by staying here and felt as though I was staying in a family home-- filled with history and memories, not just a rental property. Walking to Madaket Beach is an easy, fun trip, and we actually ended up walking/hiking about 40 miles around the island during our one week stay. Eel Point is also a short walk (about 2 miles) from the house, and a must see! We had a wonderful time navigating the island primarily on foot-- as we were able to explore many of sights hidden along the Madaket bike path, that cannot be appreciated from a car. Bicycling is another great option to get around the island and into town. Would absolutely recommend this rental to friends and family, and would love to return next October! Trying to convince some girlfriends to come for their first trip to Nantucket! Thank you so much for sharing your home and island with us; we can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Hi Kelly,
My parents built their first house,started their family and returned to enjoy retirement, all in old Madaket. It is my pleasure to continue to share the special qualities of the neighborhood, family history and Madaket memories.
My wish is for each guest to relax, be comfortable and rejuvenate for whatever is next :-))

What a week!

  • 5 of 5
This is such a nice house! The deck sits above hedges for a lovely view of Hither Creek. The sounds of birds were a constant pleasure. It's within easy access of Madaket Beach, Millies, and nice walks to Long Pond and Eel Point. The bus stops right at the corner so getting into town without a car is so easy. The interior is nicely set up, and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The property is well maintained. We had 5 adults at the house, and it was very, very comfortable. A few of us rode bikes everywhere. And, did I mention that the owner is wonderful too! We hope to return.

Wonderful, lovely house

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at this wonderful house and hated to leave. The location was great: beautiful sunsets from the deck, 10 minute walk to a great beach, just a couple minutes to the bike path. The house is uniquely built and is perfectly set up to for every one to have privacy, but plenty of room when you all want to be together. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and throughout. And the house was nice and comfortable and clean with plenty of extra towels and sheets. The owner left lots of info on things to do on the Island. We are looking forward to returning.
