Overview

Nantucket Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms & Loft,Sleeps 6; 2 Baths , A/C, WI-FI; HDTV; No Pets/Smoking

Location is everything and 'Views to Sea' has a truly unique spot on Nantucket. If you long to unwind and get away from it all, travel to the quieter, western end of the island known as Madaket. Our home sits beachfront on Madaket Harbor with views of Smith Pt., Tuckernuck Island, Eel Pt. and on a clear day, Muskeget Island. The water is calm and perfect for those traveling with young children. Facing west, we are famous for our sunsets. After sunset, the views continue when you look to the sky. Being away from Town's lights, you will experience some of the best stargazing you have ever seen. Shooting stars are frequent and early August is highlighted by the Perseids Meteor showers. Day or night, our home offers views not to be missed.

Our air conditioned home has two floors. The 1st floor has an open concept with kitchen, dining and living areas all flowing into one another. There are 2 bedrooms on the main level, one with a queen and the other, 2 twins. There is a full bath with tub and shower. Outside, find another enclosed shower which is a great experience if you've never had one! There is a large deck with wrap around bench seating as well as 2 Adirondack chairs. A dining table for six completes the lower deck. Enjoy beautiful, waterfront dining by just stepping outside.

Upstairs, the loft has its own private deck with great harbor views. There is a table for dining that can accommodate up to four people. Views and sunset are included. A twin daybed with pullout trundle bed can accomodate 2 people. There is a 2nd bathroom with an oversized tile shower and rainshower fixtures for a spa like experience.

The upstairs family room with deck is the highlight of the house and a great place to end your day after exploring Nantucket. Relax on the deck with a refreshing beverage from the wet bar, enjoy the panoramic views, or watch a movie on the HDTV.

Seasonal Bus Service: Beginning May 22, 2016, there is a bus service that stops 5 minutes from the house that takes you into Nantucket Town. We find it to be a great service and very convenient. From May 22-June 19 2016, it departs every 60 minutes on the half hour from Madaket. From June 20-Sept 15 2016, it goes to town every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour. For those with teens that do not drive yet, it affords them the independence to go into Town on their own (our 2 children loved that). Visits www.nrtawave.com for more info.

Fall into Nantucket

Don't overlook the months of September and October. Indian summer days and fewer crowds make these two months some of the best on the island. Fall restaurant week is in September and is a great time to try something new or visit some of your favorites. Cranberry Festival is in early October and is a wonderful event. The crimson bogs are a sight to behold and is a must see at least once on your travels to Nantucket.

Thank you for your interest in our home. I update the website and my calendar daily, so if a date shows available or unavailable, it should be accurate.

Wonderful vacation with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. From the moment we walked in the door to the moment we left our vacation was perfect. From the welcome gift for us and our son to every imaginable item you could need on vacation, they thought of it all. This home was so lovely and in pristine, clean condition. The listing description was spot on accurate but the pictures do not do it justice. We wanted for nothing during our stay.

Kathy and Dave were wonderful in answering all of our questions leading up to and during vacation. They were very accommodating and responsive.

Madaket is simply breathtaking. From the beaches to harbor to the magnificent sunsets, you could not ask for a better spot to take a family vacation. We took our very young son with us and it was very family friendly. The beach behind the house had no waves which was perfect for wading into the water for him. We sat on the beach and played for hours.

The location of the house was perfect, a quick drive to downtown, but very secluded and private and relaxing.

We will most definitely be back again, Kathy and Dave truly have a piece of paradise!

Week in Madeket

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Kathy and Dave's multiple times and this, past week like every other week we have vacationed there, was great! We love the house and Madaket! Having our own private beach for a week, can't be beat! The house is fully equipped and very comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

We love the quiet remoteness of Madaket, and this house offers the best of it. During past visits, we would often go into town for dinner. This time, we most enjoyed dinners on the deck and sunsets with a nice bottle of wine on one of the balconies. Another benefit was that the deck and balconies overlook a good-sized, flat yard, offering easy monitoring of our children. Owners were great to work with. We can't wait to go back!

We Loved Madaket!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Kathy and Dave for renting us your beautiful home in Madaket! It was gorgeous; clean and updated! In addition as a rookie staying on Nantucket, Kathy you were great in answering all of my questions as well as giving "real" advice on ferries, shopping and points of interest. You thought of everything for the perfect vacation. We loved being able to walk down to our own private beach on those hot summer days! The location was great because it was a short bike ride up to Madaket beach and Millies! The sunsets truly lived up to the hype and being able to sit on our own deck every night to watch was quite a show! We would love to come back soon!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you, Todd, and your three girls enjoyed our home. I'm always there to answer any questions about Nantucket ( especially rookies!) and my hospitality link on the website is there to help you, as well. Madaket is truly special and our location speaks for itself. The sunsets are something you look forward to at our home, and after 30 years of viewing them, they never get old. We hope to see you again and thanks for writing your review.

Peace.Tranquility.Comfort..wrapped up in one

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything...very comfy home with all amenities..beautiful water views from upstairs loft and family room as well as multiple decks. A short stroll to quiet beach with two andirondack chairs to sit and gaze from. Shell collecting a side attraction. Short bike ride to Madaket beach. Go to "town" for shopping, fine dining and being amongst the crowds; come back to house for sunsets and tranquility. Loved it!

Nantucket Island-Located 30 miles SW of Cape Cod. Once a whaling port, the island is rich in history and has been named a National Historic District. Visit the Whaling Museum & the Lifesaving Museum for a glimpse into the past.

40% of the island is protected conservation land. Walk, hike, bird, and bike the many trails. A network of bike paths throughout the island lets you see things at a leisurely pace.

The beaches are beautiful. Visit the north side for the calm waters of Nantucket Sound and the south side for the surf of the Atlantic Ocean. Surfing, kayaking, sailing, & charter fishing are all available.

Town has restaurants, galleries and shopping to suit all tastes. 7 miles from town, visit Cisco Brewers, Nantucket Vineyard, and Triple 8 Distillery for tastings and tours. For the golfer, Miacomet Golf Course is open to the public.

In all seasons, Nantucket is a beautiful place!
