Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first family vacation with kids to the beach (Sam age 1 and Ben age 3). We had a GREAT week. Long walks, playing in the surf, swimming at the beaches, and some s’mores. To top things off, the carnival was an unexpected bonus, mostly for the cotton candy.

We loved the house and enjoyed many meals together and even managed to do some puzzles.

The weather was great all week. One day of rain and temps in the ‘80’s almost every day. Hard to not imagine coming back. Thanks for opening up your home to us.

Loved everything about this house!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 2 nights with a group of girlfriends and didn't want to leave. Mark was such a great host, always quick to answer my questions about the house/location before our stay. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly need, making it very easy to travel light on the ferry over. It is a perfect place for a large family/group getaway--- very spacious, gorgeous views, close to a quiet/beautiful beach, and lots of privacy.

Perfect stay in a lovely house

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house (including the carriage house) for a group of family and friends that ranged in size over the week from 6 to 14, and it really was a perfect stay in all regards. The owner takes great pride in this house, and the attention to detail shows in both the house and in all of the logistics of booking, answering questions, checking in, etc. The house and carriage house are perfectly appointed with everything you need for a great little escape. The layout is really conducive to a large gathering of family and friends - a nice mix of bedroom sizes, great indoor common areas, several decks where people can do their own thing, and a hammock and outside shower which both got rave reviews during the week.

We really loved the location, and the views. Very peaceful, even in the peak of summer, with great sunrise views over the moors, and well located for quick bike rides to Sconset and Tom Nevers field. For trips to town, it's a quick drive, but also convenient to the bus and the bike path (if you don't want to wrangle parking in town during the peak season).

Everyone in our group raved about the place, and you can't go wrong with this property if you're looking for that perfect Nantucket escape.

Great home and experience

  • 5 of 5

The home is very nice and spacious. We had 8 adults in the main house and 2 more in the guest house. Had anyone brought kids, there would have been room in the loft and guest house. The house is clean, updated and has all the necessities for cooking or grilling out and relaxing on the deck. The bedrooms are all spacious and so is the kitchen/living area. 3 of 4 bedrooms in the main house are on the main level and there is a 4th on the second level, which is also where the kitchen, dining and living area is located. You can walk to the beach (it takes 20-25 mins) or enjoy the yard/large deck.

Mark was great to work with--he answered a bunch of questions and provided recommendations. We plan to return in the future.

The Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

First of all the house is beyond beautiful, great bedroom space, easy and spacious kitchen and enough bathrooms!! The deck is great for relaxing and enjoying the ocean view. The owner was a pleasure to work with and keeps the house stocked with organic cleaning products! The beach is a bit of a search/walk to get to but once you find the entrance it is vast and secluded! The only downfall about this location is how far it is from town, Ubers/Cabs added up so if you think you will be making a few trips to town I would rent a bike for the week! I would rent this house every year!

Beautiful, well taken cared for home.

  • 5 of 5

A group of girls spent a weekend here and absolutely loved it! It was the perfect 'home away from home' and enjoyed every minute of the expereince. From the beautiful yard to the cute decorations the overall expereince was wonderful. I would recommend this house to anyone and have already! I would love to come back again!
