Quiet Location, Walk to Beach, Sunny Porches!
average rating of 4.75 based on 8 reviews

This home is very clean and perfect for a family with teenagers because of the large basement.

  • 5 of 5

The large private yard is a great spot for family cookouts. The walk to the beach is about 10-15 minutes, but shorter if you take a bike. If you don't want to put up with the traffic to town, there are several shops located close to this home. This property is also a perfect place for bird watching or reading a good book. It has it all!

Nantucket cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 3 teenagers and our dog. We were able to bike to the beach and into town so the location was ideal. The owner of the home is accommodating and friendly. We had a fantastic vacation and can't wait to return!

adventure, romance or a quiet get-away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully furnished and decorated, we could not believe that this was a rental that accepted dogs (seemed way too nice). Master bedroom and bath is nicely situated by itself on the second floor with a balcony (if you want from get away from friends and family). Bottom bedroom and living area is good for noisy kids or in-laws.

Chef-equipped kitchen and very nice outside barbeque makes this a good rental for the stay-at home gourmet. Very pleasant yard and garden with a sunken patio is ideal for outside cooking and entertaining.

The beach and town (with its great restaurants) are within easy biking distance. But you need to be in shape if you planning to walk (1/2 mile to the beach about 1 mile to the center of town).

This is an ideal place for someone who is looking to be near the near town and beach action, but away from the crowds. Bike trails are nearby. The owner is super cool and is well connected with the various nature conservancies that are on the island. If you are interested in getting off the beaten path and getting in touch with the island’s natural beauty, he is the guy to talk to.

I would recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a little adventure, romance or a quiet get-away with a faithful K9 companion.

Second wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Allen's home and it was equally wonderful the second time. We just love the location with its proximity to Surfside beach and yet still close enough to town. We love the style/layout of the house, especially the master bedroom, the huge selection of great reading and the fact that its so quiet in the neighborhood, AND you can hear the ocean waves in the evening. Look forward to returning again next year!

Layout Issues

  • 3 of 5

The house is in a great location. It offers close proximity to Surfside beach, mid island stores and downtown. Although the sleeping capacity is accurate, we found it difficult and uncomfortable for five adults. The garden level bedroom is in a musty, dirty basement that is crawling with spiders. These guests are forced to use the bathroom on the main level. Also, there is no efficient dresser for two adults to store clothes. The twin bed on the main floor is in a small office with a closet. The bathroom on the main level is extremely cramped for three adults to use. The living has only a small love seat and one recliner and therefore all five guests are unable to sit together. The only other option is the kitchen table. The master suite is excellent and offers great views with a balcony. However, the house is best suited for two adults with children. Our dog had the best time. He loved the large yard.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our home. I am sorry the house wasn’t a perfect fit for your party of 5 adults. The garden bedroom, while located in a “basement” does have a full walkout door and full size windows that are open to the garden area. The week of your stay was a record breaker for heat here on Nantucket and although there is a dehumidifier that runs, the record breaking humidity may have contributed to a “musty” smell. We do apologize for any discomfort you may have experienced. Thank you for pointing out the need for an additional dresser. We will be purchasing one and also looking into addressing your seating concerns in the living room. We appreciate your recommendation for families with children to be the best fit for the house. We have received many compliments on the privacy that the sleeping arrangements provide for our guests.

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful week at this beautiful house. It looks lovely in the pictures, but it's even better when you are there in person. Great property outside too, with it's seating areas all around and lovely landscaping on a decent amount of private property in a quiet neighborhood. The house was spotless, light and airy and the owner's book collection is amazing, every imaginable interest with lots of history and interesting reads of Nantucket - if it rained all week, you'd never be bored, but it didn't, we had perfect weather too. We will be back to stay at some point in future and would recommend it to our closest friends and family. I forgot to mention the great bike rides, rollerblading, hearing the waves crashing at the beach 1/2 mile or so up the road, and those lovely long walks on the endless white sandy beaches, not to mention the great restaurants in town.

Walk to one of the south shore beaches or if you prefer hop the NERTA shuttle bus, a 5 minute walk from the house, and ride into town for some shopping. The Surfside bike path is a 2 minute ride from this house. Biking and rollerblading are popular sports here.
