Lovely Home.....Great Girl's Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen was very attentive and accommodating to my and my friends during a much needed long weekend away. The house is a nice and homey and was perfect for our needs. The house is also a short (10 minute ) walk to town which is very convenient. The kitchen is stocked with just about everything you need. The outside area is perfect. A nice blend of grass and patio area with a picnic table, ample chairs and a weber grill. It mostly rained while we were there but we did get to spend a little time out there having coffee on Sunday morning. Hope to go back to the island again soon!

Great Weekend Away!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I rented this house for a Bachelorette weekend during the Daffodil Festival and it was absolutely perfect! There was plenty of bed space for all of us and the house was adorable! Cute patio area which we were able to enjoy thanks to the lovely spring weather. A little out of the downtown area, but close enough that we could walk and enjoy the scenery. Would definitely recommend this house to others.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cozy home for a girls weekend bACKelorette. The house had everything we needed and the bed situation was perfect for our group. There were more than enough towels, linens, dishes, and cookware. The location was great too and just about a 10 minute walk into town. Would highly recommend Hunky Dory to anyone!

Amazing Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Cute little home right in the center of town. Took about 10 min to walk to the ferry/everything else in town. Had enough linens and towels as well as plenty of space for me and all my friends. It was super clean upon arrival and the owner is nice as can be. Also, plenty of amenities for cooking or grilling in the backyard which has a great hammock. I'd definitely recommend this house for your stay in Nantucket!

LOVELY HOME

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at this beautiful home for Daffodil weekend. It is a quaint home located walking distance to town. It is beautifully decorated, super clean, and has all the amenities you need for your stay. The beds are comfortable with plenty of extra sheets, pillows, and blankets. The owner is lovely and always available to respond either by email or phone. The kitchen is so welcoming with plenty of seating for everyone. It has all the amenities for cooking in the kitchen or barbequing outside in the quiet backyard. Plenty of beach towels and chairs. I rent a lot of different homes on Nantucket but my friends and I are always so happy when this is house is available for us to rent.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Hunky Dory was such a cute and enjoyable place to stay for a girls weekend getaway. We enjoyed the spacious accommodations, the beautiful and relaxing patio and the close proximity to the town center. The owner was very easy to work with and quickly addressed all of our questions.
