Great spot, great home, great host!

  • 5 of 5

Front the start, Margaret made renting on Nantucket easy and stress free. She is very responsive and genuinely wants you to enjoy her home as if it is yours while you are there. The cottages are in a great location. We woke up and exercised every morning, enjoyed sunsets on the beach and made it into town a handful of nights for a eve out. The cottages are fully stocked with nice towels and linens and are perfectly decorated for a summer cottage. We loved the outdoor showers. We look forward to renting from Margaret again.

Awesome place in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Gone too far is my new favorite place on Earth. Margaret was a joy to deal with & the house was perfect in every way. My wife & I require a very high standard of cleanliness to feel comfortable in a place .This house exceeded our expectations. The location for us was also perfect; close enough to a couple of beaches (1 calm &1w/ fun,rolling surf) yet removed from downtown. We love in town Nantucket but come out to Madaket to escape the bustle & traffic. It also made us get on our bikes and burn off some of the fine grub & drinks from Millie's- a gem of a restaurant/bar right up the road. As I read in other reviews, amenities are absolutely everything you might need. I was truly hesitant to post my review because I don't want competition for my rental next summer. I notice that as of today Margaret has listed the two houses as one rental, making it uniquely comfortable for families traveling with more than one set of siblings or older kids & grandparents. I know my in-laws are anxious to share our awesome experience next summer. My genuine hope is that Gone Too Far becomes an annual visit for us.

Vacation and Birthday Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week for a vacation and birthday. The cottage was very comfortable, and had everything we needed. The Bus route has a stop

at the nearest street, about a minute walk to the stop.

We had a car to do all of our exploring, but it was nice to take the bus straight to town.

Buy Lobster already cooked at the seafood market, we would call Sayles about 30 minutes ahead of time, and then prepare what you need for dinner at cabin. The deck is an excellent venue for meals.

Local grocery store, Sav-On, and local farm produce, Bartlett’s Farm, make it easy to cook at the cabin. Bartlett's Farm also has great pies.

and near Bartlett's Farm is 167 Seafood.

This place has local seafood to buy and prepare yourself, and better yet, boiled Shrimp already peeled.

That being said, every restaurant we tried was good.

"The Tavern" on the wharf in town had a very good Lobster roll. We went back and had our last lunch there to have their Lobster roll again.

Beaches, we liked Dionis as it was not as much wind and had amnities. And Surfside is more like Florida Panhandle Beaches. It too has all the amenities. Surfside was a planned trip, but no problem as we had a car. You could do it on the Bus also.

A very enjoyable week.

and "Gone Too Far" was an excellent choice for us.

Splendid getaway vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic getaway! The owner has thought of everything. There are so many amenities included that we virtually just had to "show up." And best yet, we were so close to the beach... just a short walk! I should mention the sunsets from the upstairs balcony. Can't get any more romantic! This cottage really had everything we could have desired. Thanks Margaret for creating a perfect getaway spot. We look forward to coming back next year. It was a vacation we'll long remember!

R &R at Gone Too Far

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, house was neat and clean. Kitchen, living area and bedrooms were perfect. We especially enjoyed the upstairs deck off the living room. The first floor front and back decks and the patio added additional comfort. Far enough off Madaket Rd. but close enough to walk. A definite keeper, we'll be back!

My Fabulous Getaway in May!

  • 5 of 5

My "vacay" was great! ... and the cottage was perfectly clean, quaint and very accommodating! I loved having my morning coffee and evening cocktails on the balcony! The cobblestone streets were charming and the shops on main street were fun. Loved watching the boats at the harbor and the "chowda" at the Seafood House! Definitely making a return visit!
