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/ bedroom has its own private deck with great harbor views. There is a table for dining that can seat up to four people. 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 Smart TV.
Seasonal Bus Service: Beginning In May, 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 mid May until mid June it departs every 60 minutes on the half hour from Madaket. From mid June through early September, 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). Early September reverts back to once an hour service.

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.
