Enjoy beautiful Nantucket at the water's edge. Perfect for family and friends, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage is located at the end of a private lane and directly on Hither Creek in Madaket, at the west end of the island. The house is a five-minute walk from one of the island's best surf and fishing beaches. (Madaket Beach was ranked a top ten beach in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe in 2011: 'The remoteness can sometimes make you feel as though you know a secret kept from other islanders.') The second-floor living area and deck offer incredible water views and spectacular sunsets. The master bedroom, kitchen, and dining area are located upstairs, too. Two bedrooms with twin beds and a full bathroom are on the ground floor.
An outdoor shower provides easy clean-up after a day at the beach or a run on the nearby bike path that leads to the town of Nantucket. Electric heat is available for those early spring and late fall days. There is a washer/dryer on-site and a rowboat for exploring the waterfront. Bikes are also available for tenant use. Island bus service (www.nrtawave.com) operates a Madaket route from late June to early September and has a convenient stop a short walk up the road, near Millie's restaurant -- a favorite for fresh seafood, a cocktail, or a sandwich for the beach.
