Good family house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable house in a very convenient location. We walked into town almost every day but you can also walk to shopping/restaurants in the Sparks Ave/Orange St area as well. Our family of five really enjoyed our stay here.

Terrific location and perfect house to enjoy the island

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Six Weymouth. The description matched the property. The house is charming, clean, and stocked with everything we needed. (a yard, patio, coolers, beach chairs, towels, grill, etc) All of which came in handy. The owner was very responsive and professional in replying to any questions I had before, during, and after the rental.

We did not have a vehicle on the island so the properties proximity to town and shopping was ideal. I would not hesitate to stay at Six Weymouth in the future and will recommend the property to friends.

Nice house but bad experience with owner

  • 1 of 5

The house is very nice. I originally rated it a 5 out of 5 with all things considered. It was a comfortable stay, it was very close to town and ideal for around 6 people. Can fit more but not sleep more. The house is spacious and has a parking spot.

Unfortunately, I've had to remove my previous review and re-write it since the owner has failed to communicate to me for the past 50 days regarding the return of my security and damage deposit. He has not provided me with any information regarding the money. He is now in breach of contract for failing to return my security deposit within 45 days. It is a shame because I would have stayed at this house again if it were not for this matter of a couple hundred dollars. I would advise against giving this landlord your money as even if he delivers 90% of your promise he'll fail on that last 10. I like landlords to be as consistent as I am. I had a wonderful stay and this nonsense has ensured I will never stay again. Give someone else on Nantucket your money, this person hasn't earned it.

Owner's Response: Security deposits are returned 45 days after occupancy in order to be able to catch all of the billing cycles for vendors such as Comcast to determine if there are any accrued charges from renter occupancy. In this case there was an administrative oversight in that the monies were sent out before the 45 days but I did not request for confirmation of receipt from the renter. Until the review was submitted I had no know ledge of the fact that the money was not received, but sent to another party in error. Moving forward, in the future I will email each renter upon mailing and ask for their confirmation of receipt of the returned monies.

Great Nantucket Experience

  • 5 of 5

Since we have no major complaints, we heartily recommend 6 Weymouth for anyone looking for an authentic Nantucket Town experience in an "antique" home. Nice well equipped kitchen, updated baths and close enough for a pleasant walk into town. Close to Sayles Seafood and Hatches package store. Nice restaurant nearby too. All in all, a nice alternative to B&Bs and other more expensive homes. Have stayed here twice and would stay again.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Overall I was extremely impressed with the house! It was beautiful and very spacious, I actually think the pictures do not do it justice. The bedrooms were large and the kitchen was open. The outdoor patio space is a great place to hang out and relax and grill. The location is ideal, a short walk to town. The street is very well kept and quiet. I would definitely rent again!

Classic Nantucket Charm and Location!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for that classic Nantucket experience, this is your place! As a frequent visitor to Nantucket for the past 35+ years, I have always had the desire to stay in a 'true' Nantucket home.

This rambling half cape is larger than it appears; offering the best of both worlds...charm AND a wonderful working (modern) kitchen, clean updated baths, and picture perfect outdoor space.

The one word that comes to mind is "comfortable"...a family would do well here.

The home is fairly priced and as represented on the website.

Not a "fussy" place; if you are looking for super-shiny high end (untouchable) perfect, you'd probably enjoy one of the over-priced hotels in lieu of this sweet spot.

If you love the real Nantucket for its beauty, quaint homes and history, this one is for you.

The location is great and the street is both pretty and quiet.

A quick walk will bring you to Sayle's Seafood (take out a hot yummy dinner to eat at 'home') and 56 Union.

An easy, pleasant stroll will get you to town and the harbor front.

The owners are accessible and easy to work with.

A very nice stay, all the way around!

Elizabeth and Greg, thank you again for sharing your Nantucket gem.

A 1 minute walk takes you to the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum and the island bus shuttle. For fine dining, the 56 Union Street Restaurant is minutes away by foot. Sayles Seafoods on Washington Street is only a 4 minute walk. The house is an easy three minute walk from the Great Harbor Yacht Club.

You do not need to bring a car to enjoy the house or the island.
