This is your home on Nantucket!

My son was married on Nantucket this past weekend. We needed a home that would accommodate my husband, myself, my son and his bride-to-be, my other son, my mother-in-law (89) and father-in-law (92), and my mom (79). We needed a home where our older relatives could be comfortable. We needed a home to entertain our out-of-town guests. This home exceeded all our expectations!
The photos are an accurate representation of the rooms, but there is no way that a camera could do this lovely home justice! It is decorated with impeccable taste. Everyone who came to visit us here was blown away. It's like a little villa in Tom Nevers! It is clean, well maintained, and extremely well appointed. There were two minor maintenance issues (neither of which impacted us) that we let the owners know about, and the caretaker was there that day. Both the owner and caretaker are easily reached if needed.
We entertained here all week. We had groups of 10-15 people that were easily seated outside on the very large deck, or in the dining room and kitchen. Speaking of the kitchen, I was in my glory! I love to cook and this gourmet kitchen was amazing! Any cooking, baking, or serving utensile you need is there. There is even an herb garden which I used frequently during our stay. The outdoor grill is gas and easily handled food for 15.
No words could properly describe the outside design of little seating areas and beautifully manicured gardens. It is an oasis!
My son and his new bride used the apartment as there own private place. It is also well equipped with a bedroom, full bath, and greatroom with kitchen. They even had there own washer and dryer.
There are plenty of beach chairs, towels, and coolers. There is a beach umbrella and other beach equipment all made available to us.
We rented bicycles from a company in town. They delivered them and picked them up. We had an easy ride into Siasconset, the Sankaty Light, and Tom Nevers Beach. The house is a short walk from the bus stop on Tom Nevers Road. So some of my relatives used the bus to come in from town.
The owner was more than wonderful this whole year as we prepared for our stay. She helped us secure a reservation for our car on the ferry, and sent us information about Nantucket.
Most of all, the owners allowed this to be our home on Nantucket. There were no locked up cabinets or do not use rules. We were entrusted with a beautiful home and we felt honored to be there!
