|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
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 Point, Tuckernuck Island, Eel Point 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 two 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 two 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 two people. There is a second 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 five 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 two 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.
If you're looking to find your happy place - this is it! From starting your day with a cup of coffee on the deck with a view of the ocean.. and ending it with a beautiful sunset at madaket beach just minutes down the road. I have been going to Nantucket for years and its the best! This house is in a great location too. It's away from town but I was able to hop on the bus right at the end of the street to get there easily ! If you're looking for a relaxing place to stay I would highly recommend this! I'll definitely be coming back :-)
Where to begin? I write this review with mixed emotions. Not because our stay was less than stellar, but because we don't want more competition for renting this home again. If you have a chance to rent this home, do yourself a favor and don't blink. It is amazing. Every detail in the home is impressive, the location is impressive, and to top it off, the owners are impressive. They genuinely care that their renters are happy. This was our 3rd trip to Nantucket and it is now an annual tradition. While we have thoroughly enjoyed each trip, this year was the best. A big huge THANK YOU to Kathy and Dave for the use of their home.
We have been to Nantucket for years but this is our first week in Madaket. The house is absolutely charming and the photos do not do it justice! The interior is perfect, the downstairs bedrooms are nice and clean and there is a family room/kitchen area with access to the deck. The upper level was such a nice surprise, there is actually a day bed with another bed beneath, basically a 3rd bedroom. Off of this room and the large spacious Play room are two fabulous little decks. The view from these decks are outstanding. The back yard is very large and there is a path that leads you to your private little beach with two chairs. We spend every night there watching the sunsets. Couples with small children would love the calm shallow waters here in the harbor for the kids to play. Even down to the clothes line to dry the towels after a long day at the beach...a perfect vacation home. Thanks so much!! We will definitely be back!
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!
Beautiful location away from the crowds in town. For a relaxing beach vacation, this house can't be beat. Sunsets were unforgettable. My whole family absolutely loved it.
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!
