Location, location and oh yea the price.

The Surfsider is in the best location for best price if you are looking for a place to rent on Nantucket. It is about a mile from the center of Nantucket. A convenient shuttle is only steps away to take you either to town or the beautiful beaches. Also, one of the best bike paths is across the street. We enjoyed the kitchen and amenities. The living room furniture and beds were uncomfortable after a couple of days, but again the price was fantastic. One real criticism I have and the reason for 3 stars is the owner planned a real estate "showing" of the house one of the days during our stay. We were torn on whether to leave or be there do to our belongings were in the house, so we stayed while they showed and made sure the house was presentable/tidy. I thought that was unacceptable to schedule a showing of the house while it is rented. Also we had no knowledge beforehand it was for sale prior to our renting or we would have probably not chosen the property. With that said, the owner was prompt and communication during the process was good.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

The home was great for the price! We walked to the beach and to town from the house. Both are about a 30min walk. The bus is right outside the house and came every 30mins. We will keep this house in mind for next year!

Nothing fancy, but a great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My 2 daughters and daughter-in-law and I enjoyed our stay here. It had plenty of room for us and was close to the shuttle. It was away from all the hustle and bustle, but a short ride on the shuttle. We enjoyed the At the Heart of the Sea tour and the Ghost Tour. Millie's is a great place to eat.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy home was exactly as it was represented in the listing. The perfect size and accommodations for four of us to stay over a long weekend this past June. The owner was responsive and helpful and it had everything we needed. Hoping to be back soon!

Beautiful, Clean and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

I stayed the smaller house at 74 surf side road this past Columbus Day with two friends. The house is very clean, comfortable and conveniently located just 2miles away from the center of town. There is a bike rental shop across the street and beautiful surf side beach is close by. The only thing was that the oven and grill were not clean enough to use. Otherwise, a perfect little getaway in Nantucket!

Fun wedding rental!

  • 4 of 5

The place was cute, nicely decorated and clean. All of the guests commented how adorable the place was. It sleeps 8 comfortably. The only complaint was the master bed was really in need of upgrade. The mattress was very flimsy. Other than that the place was great!

Location, Convenience, Location!!! If you’re looking for a home that's close to everything the island has to offer, this is the place. Located mid island, the house is right between town and Surfside Beach. Its steps to the bike trails and the NRTA (Nantucket Regional Transportation Authority), which is the public shuttle that takes you anywhere where you want to go on the island. It runs every 15 minutes, every day from 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m, May - Oct. The house is about a 15 minute walk to the school fields and shopping center (Stop & Shop, liquor store, fish market, etc.). It's also about an 8 minute walk to a large new playground. It's an easy bike ride or walk to the beach along the bike trail. For those big family or friendly reunion’s rent this house and the adjacent ranch house (#375608 on this site for info). Both properties offer the ease of keeping everyone close together.

Other Activities: Basketball court
