Why Jared Geller chose Nantucket Town

We have both been vacationing on Nantucket throughout our whole lives and have each spent years on the island as year-round residents. We absolutely love being near the ocean, and who could resist the quaint feel of the cobblestoned streets and historic downtown.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location! A short walk from everything.

Cozy Cottage with Easy Accessability to Town & the Madaket Rd Bike Path

Cozy Cottage with Easy Accessability to Town & the Madaket Rd Bike Path
  • 4 of 5
Cozy cottage, simple, adequate Pottery-Barnish decor. Lovely, spacious downstairs newly remodeled bathroom. Upstairs bath a surprise --- tiny wall hung sink, old fashioned tub/shower with wrap-around curtain. Two upstairs bedrooms very small -- no closet in one, no dresser or chest in the other. Small but adequate window ac units. Nice cross breeze in downstairs with windows, front and back doors open.

Owner very responsive and communicative. Excellent information provided to begin our stay. However, arrived and WiFi not working. As this was a working vacation, we spent anxious hours trying to connect with the island caretaker to remedy the problem. Finally, the next day, we did reach him and he advised us to unplug the modem, wait and replug. Presto, all was fine and worked well during the entire week.

My husband and I were in one bedroom, my mother in the other and my adult daughter on the sofa downstairs. Not the best arrangement for privacy or sleeping in. Would highly recommend this cottage for a couple or parents and young children, but older children might not like the sleeping accommodations downstairs. Definitely would not recommend for two couples at all!

Great location. Easy 1/2 mile walk into and out of town. My 85 year old mother did the walk with ease, often twice a day. We rented bikes for the week from the Nantucket Bike Shop which delivers and picks up for no extra fee if you spend more than $150. The house had bikes and helmets but not in the best condition. Rented bikes (with helmet & lock) were excellent.

Kitchen more than adequate but no lobster pot. Restaurants where we ate, all excellent: Straight Wharf; Corazon del Mar; Oran Mor; Proprietors Bar & Table; Ventuno; Languedoc and the Nantucket Lobster Trap for ordering pre-cooked Lobster dinners.

Would definitely return to this cozy cottage, even with my mother, but would not want anyone sleeping downstairs in the living room again. We were charmed by its sweet front porch, a blooming garden and a super location for easy access into town. Did not need or miss a car. The shuttle bus service in town was more than adequate to travel further afield. Awesome vacation, one of the best we've ever taken!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the extremely thorough review and your kind comments about our cottage! It is small, but it is cozy, it is classic Nantucket, and it is certainly situated within easy walking distance of downtown. We agree that the living space is best enjoyed by a small family or by one or two couples. The listing is correct in advertising a queen-sized bed in each of the two upstairs bedrooms. If it isn't clear that the pull out sofa is in the downstairs living area, we will emphasize that point in revisions to the listing. We will also add square footage estimates to offer additional perspective. We are aware of the storage limitations in the upstairs bedrooms, and while the arrangements are typically adequate for guests staying only one or two weeks, we are considering the addition of another bureau. Kudos are definitely in order to our outstanding caretaker, who is extremely responsive to the needs and requests of our guests! In our experience, most renters on vacation appreciate the convenience of precooked lobsters that can be picked up or delivered by The Lobster Trap (nantucketlobstertrap.com/). As such, the kitchen is not equipped with a lobster pot. The bikes and helmets at the cottage are not for use by renters and the listing does not advertise the availability of bicycles or helmets. If you are looking to rent bicycles and gear, we recommend Nantucket Bike Shop (nantucketbikeshop.com/) and Young's Bicycle Shop (youngsbicycleshop.com/). Both are reputable companies that have been in business on the island for decades.
Thank you again for all of the feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay!

Lovely Nantucket Summer Cottage

  • 5 of 5
For one week this past summer we were fortunate enough to rent this lovely nantucket summer cottage. While the owners describe it as small in stature, it is truly rich in amenities and comfort. Perhaps its because we hail from New York, but the "small cottage" was truly the perfect amount of space for not just one but two couples to enjoy their time together without feeling cramped. Everything you need is provided, and within hours, you already can feel and make yourself quite at home. Its a quick walk into town, an easy drive to numerous beaches, and overall enchanting. I would recommend it to anyone, and feel incredibly grateful we had our own chance to experience it.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
I believe my exact words were, "I've died and gone to Pottery Barn Heaven." We absolutely loved this home. Very cute and equipped with everything we needed for a month's stay - hair dryer, iron, microwave (in the cabinet above the fridge), lots of towels, cookware, bike rack, etc. The home is very well maintained and clean, the caretaker is very friendly, and the landscaping is beautiful. The location cannot be beat - just a half mile from downtown! We talked with tons of people while on the island, and everyone was jealous of our location. As you may know or will soon learn, your car doesn't necessarily come over when you do! This wasn't a problem b/c we were able to walk off the ferry and straight to the home. And, the grocery store is within walking distance too! You simply cannot drive to downtown. There is nowhere to park and the cobblestones, bikers, walkers, and traffic make it all very unpleasant. Thank goodness the house has its own parking space, b/c the street is full of people parking and walking to the downtown. That's how amazing the location is! In the opposite direction of downtown (where the ferry, grocery store, restaurants, shopping are located), is the Madaket bike path and normal, easy-to-navigate roads. The path is perfect if you run or have bikes! We spent the entire month marveling at the perfection of our choice! We have always had really good luck on VBRO, but this was the only time we didn't waver between properties. We knew it when we saw it - this house is fabulous!!!

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our recent visit to Nantucket, and in particular, our rental home. It was perfect for our young kids, with a nice (albeit small) shady yard to play, a quiet driveway for kicking the soccer ball and a quick walk in and out of town.

The home was very clean, furnished all linens and towels which is very helpful and the owners were very responsive and helpful during the rental process.

The only comment I do have is that I wish I had realized how close this home was to the others around it. A group of rowdier guests were staying in the house adjacent, and did make a bit of noise very late at night. I had to run the A/C fans just to drown them out...which was disappointing given how beautiful and crisp the night air was.

But, all in all, this home was a perfect home base for us. We plan to return to Nantucket in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Despite the smaller property size and closer proximity to our neighbors, which is typical of houses located within the historic district of downtown Nantucket, the house is discretely tucked away off of Main Street just enough to provide a very good amount of privacy and serenity.
