Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful stay in Nantucket. Our family enjoyed our time walking through town, relaxing at the beach (and swimming with the seals) and, best of all- playing in the yard and sitting on the porch.

The "Blue Crab" is a peacefuil spot on a special island to which we hope to return. We all appreciated the good stop.

Beautiful property. Amazing backyard. Very clean home.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our weekend getaway. Sharon was super helpful and very responsive. Check in was incredibly easy. Sharon's home is just a 15 minute walk into town - a very pretty walk. Loved every minute and would definitely return.

Great digs on Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented this great house for the past two summers and have no complaints. Kitchen is well equipped, the back porch, a perfect outdoor oasis...rain or shine, the living room , another room with comfy sofas and chairs, and peaceful downstairs master with bath and 3 additional roomy bedrooms upstairs. Washer and dryer are commercial so makes for easy laundry, which there is always plenty when families gather! Excellent supply of beach chairs, towels, umbrella, and toys. Loved the walk to town...once you reach the end of Dukes sandy path, it's a cinch. We will go back and if we bring extra guests, the cottage to the main house is adorable!

A Nantucket Heart Warmer!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beautiful home for 5 nights. Our stay was one of the most memorable get away weekends we’ve ever had, which could have only been contributed by the the abundance of amenities available at the “Blue Crab”. Initially, the exterior of the home took our breath away. The pictures do the pristine lawns, landscaping, and stone work no justice. Thankful that the weather was ideal, we played yard games, and gathered outside daily. The grill worked perfect, and the outdoor furniture was hard to get off of. Inside, the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare delicious meals. Not once during our stay could we not find a kitchen tool, pot, or utensil that we needed. On top of that all the appliances worked like new. Furthermore, the interior decoration was impeccable, and helped set the mood each day with a nautical elegance that is in many ways, the epitome of Nantucket. The beds were all plush and seemed relatively new; nothing like we've ever experienced before in a rental home. The bathrooms all had a surplus of clean towels of every size, which was great. An added bonus was the finished basement; fully equipped with ping pong, a comfy couch in front of a television, and a karaoke machine! All in all, it was surprisingly refreshing to walk into a rental home that drastically out shined it’s online description. For a family looking for an unforgettable weekend, this property is perfect, and deserves every bit of appreciation that can be offered.

Just great! Debbie

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from my son's wedding in Nantucket. We rented this home for our family and It was lovely. The yard was gorgeous and a very relaxing porch out back made for a few nice afternoons of conversation and cocktails with family.

The house itself has everything you need. All the bedrooms were good size., and comfortable, laundry, great Kitchen, just a nice family home. We rode bikes to Madaket, and were close to down town where all the festivities were happening. Dionis beach is also close by bike. Nice family vacation and wedding! Would highly recommend for family rental or 3-4 couples.

Lovely Nantucket Home - perfect Autumn Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a long weekend on Nantucket with 3 other couples. The house was perfect for our group. We each had our own spacious bedroom, with THE MOST COMFORTABLE beds we've experienced in a rental property. The other reviews are quite accurate in how well-appointed the kitchen is, the privacy of the yard, and the proximity to town. The other 3 couples also had high-praise for the home and we all agreed there isn't one aspect we'd want to change.

House is wonderful for family members and friends of all ages. Enjoy the many fine shops and restaurants in Nantucket town. Relax in comfortable wicker chairs on the huge back deck. Play games in the yard. Walk or bike to town, visit many beautiful beaches, enjoy bike paths to walk, inline skate, or bike. Our favorite family activity is catching blue crabs in the tidal pool off Madaket Road.
