Why Stephanie Basile chose Nantucket Town
We have made wonderful family memories in this home, as have our guests. From family vacations and surprise engagements to hosting wedding parties and rehearsal dinners, most of the families that have stayed here have made our home theirs, and the feedback that we get is so rewarding.
What makes this House unique
Big back yard and large deck. Perfect for hosting small family barbeques to engagement parties!

First class house in Nantucket
We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at 8 New Mill. Stephanie could not have been more helpful in the run-up, and we arrived to find a spotless house. The kitchen and bathrooms seem to have been renovated recently. The hardwood floors also look like they're new. Overall this was the nicest house we have stayed in over the last 12 or so years coming to Nantucket.
The house is very conveniently located on a quiet one-way street that's a few minutes walk away from the center of town. Figure 10 minutes to get to the Hub if you walk slowly. It's also very convenient for accessing the bike paths which run all over Nantucket. The house came with 8 backpack beach chairs which was a nice surprise (most houses come with a couple of moldy old chairs at best). The deck has a table with 6 chairs while the dining room has a long table which easily seats 10 people. We enjoyed hanging out during the days when the weather wasn't good enough to go to the beach.
Overall an A+ experience.
Great house, Perfect for the family.
First time we rented a house in Nantucket after staying in hotels. This house made all the difference. We had tons of space for the whole family(6 Adults, 1 baby & a dog) & all the amenities one could want. The location also couldnt be beat. A quick walk to town, but, also a very short drive to Cisco brewery, Bartlett Farms & the Beaches. Stephanie was great to deal with. Very quick to respond to any questions I had and overall really helpful throughout the rental process. I'd recommend this house to anyone looking to spend some time on the Island.
This was the perfect house for Ladies trip to Nantucket Stroll. Quick walk to town for shopping and dining. House has everything you need to cook meals in including a nice gas grill. Stephanie is always a pleasure to work with and her caretaker was very responsive.
What a nice surprise in my email to see this review today! Thanks so much for taking the time to write it :)
Best. Nantucket. House. Ever.
Our eclectic friend group stays on Nantucket once a year, and every time in the past 4 years we've had the "Goldilocks experience": too small, too far from town, too outdated, too strict/picky/uncommunicative/just-plain-ODD renter ... until this year. With Fishtales we have finally found our "just right" house.
Open layout, plenty of beds, nice finishes, gas grill, BIG YARD, SUPER CLOSE TO TOWN. And best of all: Stephanie was the most reasonable and easy to work with owner I have ever dealt with for a short-term rental (on Nantucket or anywhere from ~12 rental experiences).
If my group can keep our Nantucket tradition going we most definitely will be seeking Fishtales again.
If you have a group of ~10 -- and especially if you want to be close to the "action" -- this IS the place for you.
Great layout... just as I expected from the pictur
This was a clean and convenient property, very close to town. Stephanie was quick to answer any emailed questions I had. Gas grill was great, plenty of beach towels too. Loved the open floor plan on the first floor
One of the best stays on the Island!
This was our third Memorial Day at the house and we will be back next year! I have been staying on Nantucket for years and this is my first choice for a place to stay. Very clean, comfortable and up to date. The house sleeps 14 comfortably. It is a quick half mile walk to town and a mile from one of the best beaches on Nantucket. The location is perfect if you're not looking to have to rent a car or rely on the few cabs on island to get you around. There is also a large, well kept back deck and yard to hang out in along with a fully equipped gas grill. The owner is great and always very responsive and continues to make updates to the home. There is also a caretaker on Island who is a quick call away and always responsive if you have any questions. All in all I would 100% recommend this house for your next trip to Nantucket.
