Outstanding house for all types of vacations

  • 5 of 5

Penny made planning my trip a breeze. She was very receptive to my questions and individual needs.

The house was immaculate- extremely clean and fully stocked, just bring your clothes and food and everything else is there for you.

The house easily slept 12 adults but could also accommodate children as well if you're a family. The views from the deck are unbelievable.

The house is about a 10 minute ride from downtown, which at first I thought would be a problem. However, Uber and cabs are everywhere and you can't beat the great area the house is in.

We took a 10 minute bike ride down to the beach and a 10 minute Uber ride to literally everything else- wouldn't change a thing.

The house came fully equipped with a fire pit, swing set, yard games, indoor games for bad weather, grill and just a great outdoor space for whatever you want to do.

Would absolutely, 100% stay here again.

25th Wedding anniversary FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our anniversary and family - 3 generations by renting both this beautiful house and cottage 180109 for two weeks. The best time ever!!! Space to be together or alone, tons for the kids to do, a fire pit that we loved.

Houses are beautifully decorated and very well supplied. Will return

Heavenly family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family gathered in Nantucket this summer to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We are a family of 16 members ranging in age from a newborn to over 60. We rented both the house and the cottage and they were more than comfortable for our large group. Everyone had a bed and room for their gear . We were pleased with the number of bathrooms as everyone seems to want to get ready at the same time. The décor is charming Nantucket style with comfortable furnishing and very nice bedding. The large dining tables both inside and on the lovely screened porch made mealtimes easy as we didn't have to dine in shifts. The kitchens in both houses are well equipped and as a family who loves to cook we didn't lack for anything. The sports field and swing set were a big plus as we had so many little ones. We would return to this wonderful compound again without hesitation.

Gorgeous, warm and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Nantucket for my cousin's wedding. We had family coming from all over - California, Massachusetts and Florida. We had the best time whether it was exploring the island, enjoying wedding festivities or just hanging at "home". We cooked often, listened to music, played games (all were there at the house) and enjoyed the beauty surrounding us every day - morning and evening! The house itself is spacious, modern (listened to our music on our phones via bluetooth on the surround sound), warm and inviting. Great for entertaining too. We had the future in-laws over for drinks and apps. one night. You will love the atmosphere and the feeling you get the minute you walk in!

The property listing itself was accurate. The property is well taken care of and clean. We had a caretaker available for any questions during our stay and even a housecleaner (for an extra fee) if needed. The owner was good at responding to my questions, during the booking process. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Even though we ate in often, we did eat out as well. Here are some of the places:

-Slip 14 Restaurant and Bar - excellent. Rehearsal dinner

-Fifty Six Union - excellent. We had brunch.

-Island Coffee Roaster - great coffee, breakfast sandwich for a quick breakfast.

-Easy Street Cantina - just ok. I wouldn't go again with so many other great options. Sorry Easy Street!

-Sankaty Beach Club - parked there and walked right down to the beach. Great beach. We also played tennis. We were guests of members, but there was nobody there - off season.

Sankaty Golf Club - beautiful. Wedding was held there, husband played golf too.

Whaling Museum - great museum

Drove to Great Point Lighthouse - wonderful! We drove onto the beach too. That's an extra fee and vehicles need to have a beach permit, which we got when we rented our jeep.

If you stay here you will not regret it!
